The Post After The Last Post

Awwww, you guys. The Last Post was supposed to be the last post, but there's no way I'm not going to thank you for all you said yesterday.

Over 70 comments, a ton of tweets and a dozen emails, praising, giving positive suggestions, making offers of help and expressing sadness at my departure. Bloody hell.

I wasn't seeking sympathy with the last post, and I certainly wasn't fishing for compliments, but you were all kind enough to bombard me with both.

Thank you very much; I'm pleasantly surprised at how much it meant to me. I'm touched, flattered and humbled. Who'd have thought, eh?

So, will I change my mind? I dunno. Maybe. Maybe I can force myself not to look at the stats, not to post if I've got nothing to say, or I'm doing something else, not to feel obliged to post every day, not to be, as Leg Iron points out, so obsessive about it all. Maybe.

But regardless, Constantly Furious is buoyed by your comments and your kindness.

Thanks very much.

You know that you'll always be tempted as you pass that keyboard. It'll be sad to see you go. I for one have always thoroughly enjoyed your posts. They are a highlight of my day.

Mummylonglegs said...

Doh @ me. I got so engrossed writing a post about how sad I find it when a blogger I like decides to hang up his/her keyboard that I forgot to tell you how sad I find it that you are hanging up your keyboard. Well I never said I was bright did I.

I wish you all the best and hope to see you pop up here and there in various comments sections.

Take care mate,

Mummy x

That's better. You know it makes sense. ;-)

I hope Argos will give me a refund on the Carriage Clock I bought for you then!

Captain Haddock said...

Credit where credit's due CF ..

Why not make the Blog a weekly round-up what's what & who's who .. a sort of "omnibus" edition ?

Whatever you do , don't walk away now or the bastards who get exposed to the light will have won ..

RantinRab said...

Pack it in mate, your blog is a load of shite!

;o)

Kingbingo said...

You deserve it Sir.

I wish I had your talent.

Tory Bear said...

Boo.

Stay...

Catosays said...

I'm glad to hear it. I always enjoy your posts!

Anonymous said...

I don't know how I will start the day without having my world frame confirmed by your last post cutting all the media crap - desperately needed. If nothing else - do as Captain haddock says!

Jill said...

Loved Leg Iron's article.

See you soon then? Fingers crossed.

J Demetriou said...

So, so lame.

Mrs Rigby said...

Maybe I can force myself ... not to feel obliged to post every day
That's good.

Don't disappear.

Hairy Ricky said...

Yeaaaaay!
A glimmer of hope on the gloomy horizon. That's more like it!

CF, why not accept some contributions from other people to ease the burden? I'd be more than happy to send the odd tedious ramblings for your perusal and deletion. Just a thought, many hands make like work....or too many cooks spoil the broth....hmmm.

The Cowboy Online said...

That's it, don't look at your stats, don't feel as though you have to post every day. Look at your blog as somewhere you can voice your opinion, vent your spleen, and where a bunch of people - myself among them - will be able to enjoy reading what you have to say.

Anonymous said...

Lets have the occasional post at least. I have your short cut on my desk top:-)

Dear Mr C Furious

You'll be back.

I look forward to it.

Nooooo … I need you CF, my entire repertoire and general banter is completely ripped off from your blog! How will I get by without using your clever quips and classic one liners to friends and colleagues! They’ll think I’ve had some sort of lobotomy! You’re hanging me out to dry you selfish bastard!

Anonymous said...

i ve only recently found your blog and have found it very entertaining. shame to see you hang up your pen/fingertips/keyboard whatever
good luck

Anonymous said...

Aw shucks youve got me welling up now. Use the time off to get in touch with your feminine side, maybe a box set of "Sex and the city" or take in "Marley and me" over the weekend. Then when you feel its time you can still do the occassional blog after all the Cunts will still be here !

Chief_Sceptic said...

CF - glad you're having second thoughts ...

Some of your comments have reduced me (at work) to biting my hand, rather than let go with hysterical laughter ! ...

Do like "Grumpy Old Sod" for a while - just post when you FEEL like it - bugger the 'stats' and comments ...

Anonymous said...

I hope you will find the time / inclination to continue posting, even infrequently. You have an uncanny knack of taking my scrambled thoughts and giving them order and life.

A talent too good to waste.

Haste ye back.

the man who fell back to bed said...

it will be a shame if you leave the blogosphere for good.

however, whatever you do I wish you and your loved ones well, and thank you for the amount of smiles you've raised here.

Anonymous said...

CF you can't go now, you've inspired me to leave the following comment:

J Demetriou you are a horrific shitbag and i hope that when you next have a shit you have a prolapse you shitting cunt

that is all.

You my dear Sir /Madam are ALWAYS worth reading. Something once a week will keep us all going. Don't you dare go away.
God Bless you.

Caratacus said...

Hi CF, c'est moi encore (that's your actual French); just a thought: Have you ever had the misfortune to have visited a lavatory just after someone has divested themselves of a spectacularly malodorous dump? Everything looks OK. The windows are still intact. There are no obvious teeth marks upon the door - but... the stench remains. Thus it is with dear old GB. They've gone (the NuLabour shites) but La! who is this tip-toeing across the landing with his own pink bog-roll tucked tightly under his arm? Why, it's Mrs. Cameron's little boy with a dreadfully earnest look about him.

You can't leave us now CF. We need you.

Gordon Is a Moron said...

Thank god for that, else I might have to stoop to reading b&d

caesars wife said...

Thanks CF some excellent times and posts I hope you find somthing that you enjoy .

considering doing somthing more real/creative myself.

John Demetriou = a cunt who should be ignored at all times.

Kewel! Don't think you have to post every day. We love your blog CF!!

brian.brillo said...

Top man CF.
As my mistress always says, "for God's sake keep it up"

Sid Squid said...

Come back soon - your scribblings are much appreciated.

J Demetriou said...

SOB! PLEASE COME BACK!

I need someone who is easy meat for ripping ten tons of fuck out of. That was always a laugh. Not so much fun if I know you might not be listening.

Come on CF, come back, your amazing blog made my life, it was such an inspiration [add nauseating bollocks sentiment here] ad infinitum.

Tossers one and all, LOL.

Middle Seaxe said...

You'll be back. I know it, you know it, we all fucking know it.

It's a bit too easy to ineffectively rant in the heat of summer. Come back in the Autumn, when the rage has been simmering in the pressure cooker of your subconciousness.

rinky stingpiece said...

There are times when I feel like blogging and ranting online are a complete futile impotent sad waste of time; then there are others when I see it as a powerful way for ordinary people shut out by the system and it's own ruthless agenda to organise, subvert, undermine, and resist it.

My guess is that if you feel you can't post any more then the real reason is that you are deep down too content, and see it as a waste of time and energy; now and again though, something will flicker inside; something, like Dr David Bana will trip a circuit breaker and turn you into a hulk ready to let rip.

Blogging is quite sad on many levels; but it's the only thing "we" ordinary people have got in the face of such a useless biased self-interested media and incompetent fascistic self-serving establishment.

For that reason alone, you've got to remember that "bigoted idiots" like us are carrying on Orwell's legacy for sanity in the face of a great stomping boot.

You'll know when you're ready to talk; and you can rest assured that we'll be ready to listen.

Keep it foolish ;P

killemallletgodsortemout said...

Don't be a knob, CF.

Keep being furious, we like it!

Ancient and Tattered Airman said...

Please reconsider CF. Your comments are needed - and enjoyed!

OldSouth said...

Take a few weeks off, and come on back.

You always have something to say, even if it is sometimes (pun intended) infuriating.

You'll be missed.

Best wishes,

OS

Angry Exile said...

Bloody hell. This is why I hate being too busy even to look at my favourite blogs, much less write something myself. Every time I take a leave of actual work a blogger I like seems to hang up the keyboard, and I usually don't notice for about a week.

CF, I can see I'm very late in saying this but I've enjoyed your blog and I really do hope that your blogging break isn't a permanent one.

selsey.steve said...

Still checking, every day.
Just in case.

Atlas said...

CF, what can I say that hasn't been said already? You speak for us in a particularly articulate and angry fashion! Bravo sir! Don't be gone for too long, your blog was always the highlight of my day!

Kingbingo said...

I'm still checking daily.

Just encase he's back.

selsey.steve said...

What kingbingo said.

Caratacus said...

Oi - you not back yet?

hunkofjunk said...

Stop whinning for fvcks sake. Go and have a few beers, some great sex then man up and get back to making the rest of us feel better about the world. It's a blog, it's not like you've just done three back to back tours in Helmund or something.

Anonymous said...

I have been watching to see if you would crack but so far nothing... You were one of the people I could rely on to make me laugh, no matter how dark the day. I am sure that Broon's secret pay cut must have caused your fingers to twitch.

Never mind, once Cameron starts taxing us like a drunken socialist and Clegg is found in bed with Sarkozy and Mr Rumpy from Belgium, you will return with your old vigour.

selsey.steve said...

Nope, still nothing.
Maybe next week, then?

Knocks on door. Looks through windows. Sighs. Leaves.

A concerned parishioner said...

Dear CF
I feel like a carol singer, turn up, knock the door, wait and still sod all happens.
Sort your shit out and open the door!

Jill said...

Awww. I want you to come back!

Caratacus said...

Someone call Plod - the milk's piling up on the step, the curtains are drawn and there's a bit of a pong from within. What? Oh it's a student's house. Oh.

Paul Nizinskyj said...

What?! Where the fuck are you going??

hunkofjunk said...

Oh, FFS please don't tell me I've been following a layabout hippie student who has failed his last exams and must now get a job, that really would be the end.

No, I think the truth is likely to be much more sinister.

I think CF is chained to a radiator in a basement in Earls Court, wearing a respirator and traffic wardens jacket and saying, "Please Mistress, I won't do it again," whilst being stamped on with stilletos.

he'll be back, he just needs to wait for the bruises and mental scarring to heal.

Angry Exile said...

Knocks on door......
























... runs away.

ToryHome said...

FFS! My last blog post was err....27 March because I haven't felt like blogging - doesn't mean I won't though.

CF, fucking blog when you feel like, not when you think you should!

At least put up a fucking test card or something.

Indyanhat said...

Fuck me!, I just gotta follow this Blog, it gets more visits than mine does, Hey CF ! kicking the habit is a hard thing to do to your hallucinated friends here ya know!!

John Demetriou said...

These sad cunty arse sucking comments are exactly the reason why these country clubbers blog, and how they shoot off into the stars of blogdom.

I scratch your back, whore for hits and attention, schmooze, and it all pays off

CF was shite and boring. End of. You people need to get a fucking life.

I've Only Just Fucking Started said...

John Demetriou - was it cold when you got out of the ground this morning? When you get back tell Roy Orbison we're all thinking about him.

These people are doing no harm to anyone - so fuck off and eat spiders.

selsey.steve said...

Visited just for Old Time's sake. Remembered the joyous vitriol and stuff.
Ah, well.
Back again next week, just to see.

Caratacus said...

Oi! CF! Oy oy oy

Put that bottle down and open the curtains. Open the windows too - peeyoo...was that you?? Take yourself for a shit immediately.

There are people out here who need you and gawd knows there are enough fucking targets available: Cameron about to sell us a bit further down the river and let the EUSSR start taxing us (the cunt); Ed + Ophelia Balls trying to take over from Snotty McBroon, Vince (I've got the right Ump) Cable who looks more and more like a sheep with a secret sorrow; surely one of these represents something to 'ave a go at?

TALK TO US

Even if it's only to tell us to Fuck Off.

Looking more and more like the election made no substantive difference. Aren't you furious again yet?

Come on CF, you've had your rest, summer's over, the cuts are here, get angry again ...

Caratacus said...

Helloooo-oooo....

Anyone there?

This lot, as bad as - if not worse than - the last lot. Treason is in the air and the bastards are getting away with it; laughing as they go too.

Aren't you just a little bit Intermittently Furious, Old Son??
