Until next time…

a well-lit neighborhood

Well, PoPvillians…the day is coming to an end. And as the sun sets, you will also feel the fading glow of the reign of the Lord of Petworth.

As much as Thursdays generally suck, tomorrow will suck worse, because you won’t have my charming effervescent hostiness to keep you company.

But look at the bright side: PoP will be back tomorrow! And, of course, as has played out in the comments time and time again: you always have each other.

But let’s take a moment and review what we’ve learned this week:

  • 2,000 of you will look at a picture of me wearing a yarmulke, simply because I provided you with a link to do so.
  • Never post hypothetical questions about your neighbors, because they may read the blog where you pose it.
  • Despite a deep affection for Magnetic Fields, the new DC theme song should be the Eastern Motors jingle
  • You can never have too many posts about mosquitos.
  • Don’t put bagged dog poop in someone else’s trash can…or put dog poop in your own trash can. In fact, to avoid any controversy, do not put anything in any garbage can, ever.
  • Nothing starts a bitchfight like mentioning “bikes” and “cars” in the same post. Wait, you don’t even have to mention cars.

You’ve all been amazingly good sports.

I’ll be back sometime, I assume. Until then, you can find me on my web site (okay, I’ve been taking a break from there while I finish this new book, but I will post there again eventually) and on Twitter @ericnuzum.

Peace out!

    Thanks for entertaining us!

  • I promise you I told PoP that I wanted to meet LoP at the wedding, but then I totally forgot since I was so busy running around! Your posts are very entertaining!

    Thanks for generating the hilarious bickering that kept me laughing (when I should have been working.)

    Thanks for keeping this going in the Prince’s absence. Something has to get me through the day.

  • Meatball Sanders

    +1. This place was a little less hostile for a few days.

  • Eckingtonite

    I will miss the Lord. Thank you for the week!

    Thanks LoP, nice work.

  • Assy McGee

    Thank God and good riddance.
    You are the corniest person ever!!!!

  • Let me know if you need a militia. I have enormous guns for eyeballs. That dinky “Lord” title can be moved up with one swift stroke of unspeakable violence. Trust me, we can DO this thing.

    • Artie Schparkler

      Whoa. Dude. Time to stop huffing gas. Again.

    Like I said, PRAISE THE LORD!

    Well done manne. Appreciate that.

    Thanks for letting us stay up late and eat pizza while you baby-sat. How much do we owe you?

  • Lady

    Thank you LOP. I enjoy your visits. I caught the cute kid slip in, and he is in fact as adorable as ever.

    It’s like when Mama Cass or Joan Rivers filled in on the Tonight Show.

    So I’ve heard.
