This Week’s Closing Credits

See you all on Monday! I’m going to be doing household chores all weekend, and thinking about my future.

I hope you all had a great time reading “Citizen of the Month” this week. I enjoyed being here with you, and I loved your wonderful comments. I’m sorry I haven’t been keeping up with your blogs as frequently lately. Give me another week or so to get my head on straight. You can always send me an email and say hello!

I’d like to thank the rest of the cast — Sophia, my mother, my talking Penis, and even my late father, who still shows up every once in a while. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you all again on Monday. I’m sure next week, there will be plenty more wacky adventures, important cultural issues discussed, and even some heartfelt tears here on “Citizen of the Month.”

And now, here are this week’s closing credits:


  1. Bre

    When you finish your household chores, you should really fly out here and finish mine…

  2. chez bez

    No pressure, but I expect this blog to always be as awesome as it is now. 😉

  3. Dagny

    Ignore Bre. I have some vacuuming that needs to be done.

  4. tamarika

    I’ll be here …

  5. mckay

    hang in there, bubba.


  6. Neil

    Dagny — I only use a Dyson. What vacuum do you have?

  7. psychomom

    Credits don’t get enough credit, these days they get all push to the side of the screen and played at warp speed.

    That was nice and better than some movies I’ve watched.

    Enjoy some quiet time and good luck with that contemplating the future thing.

    I’m here if you get real desperate and can’t find your own mommy 😉

  8. churlita

    Don’t you want to fly to lovely, bucolic, Iowa and do some chores?

  9. Dagny

    Bring the Dyson with you.

  10. Neil

    Churlita, it depends. Are the women of Iowa considered “easy?” I would guess my best shot would be the poets in that University of Iowa Writing Center.

    I know for a fact that you can get a female poet in bed by just name-dropping a few hip poets. How do you think I got that gig with Poetry Thursday?

  11. Pearl

    Lola Falana was in your credits, lucky you. Did you Lambada together?

    (Chin up, Neil. Things will work out fine. I know these things…)

  12. Neil

    Pearl. You know who Lola Falana is. I know who Lola Falana is. Will anyone else? (maybe Danny)

  13. Pearl

    Um, Neil…?

    Lola Falana will know who she is…we hope!

  14. Pearl

    Hey, Neil, what are you doing at your computer on a perfectly good Saturday night? It’s

  15. Pearl

    oops… I hit “say it” too soon.

    You should be out and about around this time; by us it’s 1 a.m., beddie-bye time, but by L.A. time, you should be hitting a jazz club…or in your case, a blues bar. Blogging is so passe at this hour…isn’t it?

  16. Neil

    Gee, Pearl, thanks for blowing my cover as a wild partygoer. Oh yeah, that’s right… I’m not on the computer sitting in pajama bottoms… I’m actually at some hip club dancing with J. Lo and writing this little note on my blackberry. Gotta run… Marc Anthony wants to pitch an idea to me…

  17. helen

    You have a good weekend yourself! 🙂

    I always enjoy your posts.

  18. deannie

    Don’t forget the ‘valuable lessons in life’ that we get from week to week right here on Citizen of the Month.

    I’ll be back next week to watch and learn… 🙂

  19. sandra

    The Academy is going to be PISSED that you didn’t thank them.

  20. Juliness

    Hopefully your weekend has been just right. Your Travel Plan cracked me up and I don’t even think you’re kidding about it all.

    I am also very happy to see the oversight in excluding Delaware has been remedied! Given all the BlogHer inclusiveness musings lately I know you’ve experienced the hurt in being overlooked, so I thank you.

    PS I’d stop in Wilmington rather than Dover. Your odds are MUCH better there.

    PPS I have no idea what to make of those Jessica Alba panties either, so don’t feel too bad.

  21. Neil

    Juliness — I happen to know one of the rabbis in Wilmington, so he could always help me out, too.

  22. plain jane

    Next time your clubbing with Marc Anthony, tell him hi for me! You wild party boy.

  23. wordgirl

    Hang in there bud. I’ve been scarce lately, but I’m still around.
