Farrell's turning off the Fawcett

Good readers,

writing services

It is with great regret that I announce that for the next two months I need to concentrate on preparing for my Psychiatry boards. Until Thanksgiving I will be setting aside sledge hammers, power drills, and computer keyboards to focus on much less creative projects.  I hope soon to pass through the final door of examination purgatory that began eight years ago in medical school. Wish me luck.

But I have great news to report: Next week Trixie Honeycups will make her long-awaited return after a difficult hiatus. How exciting!

And that's not all. I have even greater news to report: Last weekend another of our own TGW contributors got himself engaged. (Drum roll.) Dr. Cedric Cedarbrook was engaged to his dear partner Brian. They paid tribute to both sets of their parents, who got engaged in New York City many years ago, and traveled to those same locations to exchange rings. How precious. Heartfelt congratulations to the handsome couple!

Now, may the political winds soon alter state laws and allow their marriage to proceed officially somewhere in the U.S. This I pray.

See youse again in November. Hugs and Kisses.

    best wishes on psych boards, f.

    and cedric: what wonderful news. i love how TGW has become *the* place for couples to drop engagement news. i was a little pissed that i hadn’t heard sooner, then found a message from you in my inbox this morning. farrell left out the detail that you actually went to the exact locations where your parents became engaged — Brian on bended knee in Union Square Park and you reciprocating in a horse-drawn carriage in Central Park. could anything be sweeter?

    i’m just glad you won’t be living in sin anymore.

    Congratulations, Cedric and Brian.

    We’re working on getting a wedding registry feature here at TGW, of course. Partnering with IKEA, actually, PB.

    And good luck to Farrell as he tries to become a Real Psychiatrist.

    Glad to hear all the great news. Congratulations, fellas (and Trixie)!

    amen to that: welcome back trixie!

    Farrell, congrats on finally flying down to South America and slapping some sense into those bogus drug “kingpins.” I know the next few months will be difficult, the treks through unforgiving rainforests, the financial arrangements involved in setting up a reliable international cocaine ring, and the meetings with members of congress and the CIA, insuring the feds stay off your back. Good luck, brother, if anyone can do this it is you. Let no one stand in your way; blood washes off just as easily as house-paint.

    Cedric, I am thrilled to hear your wonderful news but saddened that such a hot commodity is being removed form the shelves. I guess I can stay in the closet for the time being. Just let me know when you’re available again.

    Trixie, My bowl has been empty for too long; I look forward to some good porridge recipes. It’s time to walk the walk.

  6. PB says:

    Farrell, good luck and we will so miss you.
    Cedric, a million congratualtions.
    Trixie, I can’t wait.
    and Dave B, the next time I am in NY, I am so taking you shopping.

    Great news all around, everyone (except, of course, Farrell’s hiatus)! Will this latest engagement put the lock in G-Lock? Only time will tell . . . I’d sure miss his saucy come-ons, so I hope you don’t settle him down too far, Dr. C.

    It’s true–since TGW’s inception, it has borne witness to the weddings or engagments of ot one, not two, but THREE contributors! It’s practically theknot.com. And Farrell’s last post did contain a sort of teaser about a potential fourth, didn’t it? farrell? trixie? any comment?

    And Scott, get back out of that closet right now–you know I don’t like my boys too straight.

    Reading this post was like being on an emotional rollercoaster: the solemn announcement of cessation in posting (down, down, down); the tempering of this bad news with the acknowledgement of its temporary status (leveling out); the lifting of spirits with the proclamation of the return of a long-missed author (up, up, up); then, swift acceleration to the tip-top of joy with the announced betrothal of two greatly loved and admired GreatWhatsitters (whee!).

    Congratulations Cedric and G-Lock! Lovely news! Well done!

    Trixie, welcome back!

    FF, we await your return with bated breath. Good luck!

    All right! Congrats, Cedric and Brian! I’m so so so excited for you both…

    And Farrell, you’ll be missed, of course. (Luckily, Trixie’s there to pick up your slack.)

    Btw, F, I thought of quoting that Lemonheads song, a fun song indeed, but it doesn’t really translate well to the page. (However, I do like the line, “never rolled/rode a sleeping bag, let alone a mountain bike.”)

    I love TGW so much I want to marry it.

    We’ve got some serious celebratin’ to do. Um, does this mean we’ll be partying in Philly? Internet-partying just doesn’t do us justice.

  11. Cedric Cedarbrook, MD says:

    Thanks to everyone for the well-wishing. I imagine this won’t affect my column too much, except for the eventual name change to Cedric G-Lock, MD. And the fact that I’m so in love I only want to write about puppies and kittens.

    Mentally ill puppies and kittens?
