It’s over, it’s over

thank you


Who’s slicing onions in here?

I put it off as long as I could. I tried, y’all, I REALLY tried.

But the day we all dreaded is finally here.

I just couldn’t keep doing things . . . as, um, you probably noticed by the distinct lack of things being done around here lately. Yeah. Sorry about that.

Sooo, this is it. THE END. You’re going to just have to start doing things yourselves. Get your own colonoscopy, eat your own cat puke, have your own bacon cremation, meet your own creepy neighbor, create your own strandwich, and you can go to Jamaica ALL BY YOURSELF. Wait, actually I will continue to do that. Back off.

There comes a day in every JD’s life when it’s time to leave her frivolous youth behind and strike out on her own. Wait, this sounds like a different story. Oh, I remember. I’m quitting my blog. I guess I quit a while ago but wasn’t quite ready to make it official. Today it’s official. Sorry, suckers. Also, thank you. For all the love. It’s been so much fun. But without you, it would’ve been lonely and pointless. Not completely pointless, because I would’ve done things and written about them anyway. Why do anything, if not for oneself, I always say. At some point, I Do Things will be archived, probably at For now, it’ll stay nestled right here, where you can come and mourn its demise.

BUT WAIT! Dry your stupid tears, because I’ve started a NEW BLOG. BUT WAIT! Keep crying, because it’s totally different from this one. So some of you will hate it. But some of you may like it. It’s called The Grateful Addict, and you can find it at It’s all about how I’m a grateful addict and stuff. End of plug.

And so in closing, thank you again. For allowing me to do all the things you didn’t want to do. It was an honor and a pleasure. In 2007, I became addicted to prescription painkillers, but that is also the year I started this blog. I’ve had many crappy days since then, but I Do Things and all of you brought me a lot of happiness, laughter, and gratification.

Now get off your asses and do your own damn things.

Love, JD

    I seriously don’t want to do those things myself.

    I guess they’ll have to go undone. But I will be watching your new blog.

    Take care.

    I’m so glad you have started a new blog. Out with the old, as they say. It’s a brand new beginning for you and what’s more fitting than a new blog.

    I’m so thrilled for you and know, in part, what you must have gone through.

    Well done JD!

    Love love loved this blog, but understandibly all good things must come to an end. Excited for the new blog, just happy to see you writing again. Thank you for countless laughs when life gave me nothing to smile about. You’re amazing!

    I’m so sad to see you go. You’ve got such a unique and funny view of the things you’ve done so I don’t have to. I’m glad you’ll still be writing and doing things I don’t normally do, like being a grateful addict. See you there!

    I don’t see it as an ending…but a beginning. I liken it to taking the training wheels off. Now you are SAILING! :) Wheeeeeee!
