worse then death

YOU GUYS.

JJWT is looking for a new even kickA-ier job. Bc he is such a grown up and hates fun and me being happy, he is worried people will find this by google'ing us.

{what? Aren't there like a BRILLION Jordan/Jason/Wes/Taylors who went to law/biz/med/dental school and married Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicoles???}, sooooo, he's putting the other shoe down and said no more.

:(

I'm not even sad for me I'm sad for you!


Your going to miss the crap out of me!! How will you know what to wear? How will you know how to be? How will you know what's cute vintage and what's ug?? You won't even get to point and laugh at Ruth w/ me!! You won't even get to see Derek's wedding! You won't even get to see Lynzii and I's fight til the bitter end! You'll never know what my new calling will be! What if I chop my hair and you don't even know about it???????? You won't know if Yvette ever manages to get married or how fast JJWT's yet-to-be-formed juice co takes it to the next level! What will you do w/o my oversharing??? You won't get to see Alivyiah TreCole and Tridger Kaegrin's aMaZiNg birthday parties, you won't get to see my daily darling design inspiration, you won't know what to buy or covet or tantrum over and worst of all...

you won't get to meet Brogan, who will be born in May.

THIS IS GOING TO BE SO HARD FOR YOU.

Luckily I've got the sneaky feeling there're about ninety hundred blog's totally inextinguishable from mine to keep you going thru the hard times.

Thanx for reading, for realsies.


Farewell, my e-BFFs, till we meet again in that great anthropologie in the sky.

No TAMN!!! Don't go!!!

Doug said...

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Charity said...

Wow. This is a sad, sad day that I worried would come someday (assuming this really is for realsies). I just want to say THANK YOU for this blog. It has helped me keep things real, believe it or not. It's a sanity check for me to come here and see that someone else is poking fun at something that I think is utterly ridiculous. So, thank you, for validating me, TAMN!! Best of luck with Brogan, I'm sure he'll love his name....

Lolee said...

oh my gosh!! This is really a sad day!

Debbie Barr said...

No! TAMN we will miss you SO much!

GinnyBerry said...

I am crushed. I so look forward to your posts for guidance.

SB said...

What?!!NOOOOOOOOOO!!! THis IS worse than death.

Heather said...

Is this for reals? I'm seriously going to go through withdrawals.

RATCH said...

Noooooooo! Puhleeeeeeez tell me this isn't so. :(

Beth said...

NOOOOOO!

Brittany said...

Wait is this for serious or just another one of your "blog breaks"??? please no!!!

kymthemom said...

I am seriously, so sad. Best of luck in the future, TAMN.

kris said...

"The great anthropologie in the sky" might be one of the best lines yet.

And TAMNers, and chick behind TAMNers? In case this is "for realsies" goodbye:

Bravo, Bravo, Bravo.

This blog has brought me a lot of sanity. I will be giving you a standing ovation in my heart forever and ever amen.

Token Asian Friend said...

Nooooooo! {sniff} So sad! All I have to say it THAT was an amazing ride. Thanks for the laughs, TAMN. You are amazing and you will be missed! Love you!

Your Token Asian Friend.

Steph said...

You can't go! I need this blog!

~j. said...

Baby your a firework.

Bravo.

And thanks.

Kim said...

Isn't Brogan the name of one of the ogres from Shrek 4?

myimaginaryblog said...

Waaaaaaaa! I'm sad for me, too. What, he's going to work for the CIA?!

Melissa Stringham said...

I agree, this blog has helped me to realize how I DON'T want to be, as crazy as it sounds. I'll miss you!

Laura said...

Oh man, I'm totally bummed! I just moved to Utah and I love seeing the all your posts practically come to life here. Thanks for the laughs!

Anita Cramer Wells said...

you will be sorely missed. thanks for all the laughs.

once it's over, will you reveal your identity and write a book about it or something?

BFFs 4EVER!!!

moonrat said...

oh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

:(

KC said...

THANK YOU. Just so you know, my all time fave post was this one (http://seriouslysoblessed.blogspot.com/2009/06/now-that-im-from-dc.html) about when you lived in dc and made a zillion friends exactly like you.

As an out-of-stater subject to droves of TAMNs and JJWTs flowing through my ward, it came a great time and caused a good healthy belly laugh.

Love you! FOR REALSIES.

Susan said...

My life is officially over... your blog is why I get up in the morning!

JenB said...

NOOOOOOOOO TAMN! Don't go! How will I ever know if Brogan's middle name is something valient like Zeezrom? How will I ever know if Derek had the most amazing cake and kick-a recepshun ever? How will I ever know if Lynzii's next baby leaves her teensi body all hefty?

I for sure hope you come to the mishun feld sometime in the future so we can be bffs for realz. I will miss you!

julie said...

You're breaking my heart.

danerick said...

TAMNers! What do you think you are doing?! You can't just abandon us now!! Why not just go private? Then NOBODY will now that you are JJWT's super hot wife. At leest think about it first, ok?!

BreAnn said...

NO TAMNers! Please don't go! How will I learn to be like you if I am not kept abreast of what you are like that day?!

Mina said...

Oh no! Like you said in you're earlier post--when you missed cause of you're cruze--if you don't blog about it, is it rilly even happning? Oh.My.Gosh. My world is, like, shooken to it's core!!!! I don't know what to even believe anymore. :(

Kristine said...

seriously? I can't believe I'm actually sad. Truly. If this is real, I just have to say: Props. Kudos. And Thanks.

Allison and Mason: said...

Is this post actually real? If so, then that's a very sad day for all of us fellow stay at home mommies who keep pressing refresh button on our blogs to see if you have posted anything on our automatic updaters on our blog lists.

I'm truly sad to see you go. You brought much joy into my life. JJWT is a meanie.

Maya said...

Thanks for the ride, TAMNers. Reading your blog kept me sane at times, and always laughing. It's a sad morning here, for sure.

Good luck!

Michelle said...

I knew this day would eventually come, so I must say to whomever is behind this that you're brilliant, and you've provided me nearly all of my best laughs of the past few years. Best of luck to you in whatever you do!

Fave TAMN-ism: tubbalardy!

Nick Paige & Josh said...

worse. day. ever.
i have no idea how i'll cope.
hmmm. maybe a cruise?

Melissa said...

Seriously? Sigh. I'm hoping is isn't for reals... but if it is, thanks. I so looked forward to your posts that literally made me LOL. You put many a smile on my face... good luck :)

Carolyn said...

I felt this one coming for a while--your posts were so few and far between:( It was funny, but I can see how you were getting tired of it and ready to move on. Good call.

Kristen said...

I hope this is just JJWT being mean. Hopefully he'll get it through his thick boy brain that this blog is for prosterity and he'll feel bad. Then he'll get you tons of GCs and take you to Cheesecake tonight.
But if not, thanks for all the laughs! We'll miss you!

Patrice Telfer said...

NOOOOO!!

cfg said...

Thanks for the memories. I have been a devoted fan from the beginning. Without you, I would never have known that TAMN-like people existed. Thanks for sending my daughter a tee shirt. Thanks for bringing a lot of smiles to my gray days.

Kyle and Alli said...

I sure hope that this is just another "fake" blog break. I find this blog to be hysterical and I look forward to TAMN's return once JJWT stops being such a goober!

Jensen said...

Total and complete shock. The tearsies are welling up. How can I be expected to keep my resolutions when my year is starting off so bad, and next week is my birthday too! Can we at least meet at the park sometime?

Christin said...

Please tell me this is a fake blog break!

Salt H2O said...

Since you were picked up by the national media (Slate) I guess you kind of peaked.

I have a sneaky suspicion that you may make the occasional comeback because you just can't resist. But then it will be for you, not for your fans- which is what made this blog great in the first place.

Erick & Molly said...

I am SO sad. I just found your BLOG and my hubby and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Please reconsider!!

mitchpamandtherhoadants said...

You must unveil yourself so the world will know who the true genius behind this has been. What is your new venture?

Russ and Em said...

Thanks for the laughs. I will miss you keeping it real (by not keepin' it real). Good luck in all you do!

Robyn said...

will aint that a kick in the pants! i will miss you're lactating calendar the most!

Megs said...

say it isn't so. I would DIE for reals!

Miss Wendy said...

This is the worst day of my life!!

Chrystie said...

TAMN! Please tell me this is another cry for validation and attention because you wouldn't really stop this blog?!?!?!?!?!??! I NEEEEEEEED it. Don't go don't go don't go! You need the $$ from the ads for your pedi's especially now!

Polly Scott said...

I am in shock too! I wish you the best of luck in everything you do. May you always be as happy and perky!

Laraine Eddington said...

Come back someday when you're a grandmother that looks younger than Alivyiah and brag about your monthly cruises and where you are serving as a mission president. I'll look forward to it.

noelle said...

i refuse to believe this.

Chelsea said...

Please no!

Lauren said...

don't do it!!

Jill said...

I will miss this blog! It is so funny and seriously so true. I love how you never miss any details, like the mispelling of then in worse then death. Noone could replace this blog even if they tried.

Liz-a-nator said...

TAMNers Creator,

You are one of the most brilliant satirists I have ever come across. Thanks for the laughs, the observations, the thoughts. You are a gem. Forever and ever, amen.

Just know that if the rest of us get all poligafrump, it's not our fault...we just didn't have your guidance.

Alli said...

If you are serious, then THANK YOU for all the laughs. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Best of luck to you!

Lindsey said...

If this is for real, I'm sad to see you go. :'( You're an excellent writer and I will miss your hilarious posts.

Also, I've been meaning to e-mail you and tell you that TAMNers reminds me of Michelle from the current season of The Bachelor. You'd be best friends or bitterest enemies if you ever met!

Julia said...

TAMN! This had better be another of your jking dealios, bc I CANNOT live without this blog!!!! I will literally die and scream and rant and rave!!!!

liliblogs said...

TAMN!!! I think it's time to have a real sirius talk with JJWT and tell him the blog is part of your MARRIAGE! I mean!...

Waaaaaa!!!

Three Little Brown Kids said...

Thank you!

liliblogs said...

Doesn't JJWT Know that your blog is APART of you?!?! It like, defines and shapes and inspires the very ESSENCE of TAMN! That's like... taking away fro-yos for life--only WORST!. Oh TAMN, I fell like apart of me is dying...

Laurie said...

Thanks for the laughs. You are brilliant. Favorite TAMN word of all time: polygafrump. Love you!

Rebecca said...

I can't thank you enough, dearest anonymous TAMN blogger. I don't live in Utah- never have lived in Utah- but know lots of people who live/are from there. As an East Coaster, all I can say is Bravo. Truly and sincerely- Bravo!

Jane said...

Nooooo! Don't go!

Please tell me this is just another one of TAMN's ploys for attention...

Kareen said...

TAMNers! I seriously just found your blog YESTERDAY, and you just can't stop now!! It's absolutely BRILLIANT in every way... you just can't pull up and leave, I just got here! Fast and pray on these things... and tell JJWT that we'll pinky swear to NEVER try to discover who you are and, if we do, we'll NEVER tell your bishop. PLEASE PLEASE RECONSIDER!!!

Angenette said...

Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

C Tam said...

Are you for rill?

Diane said...

My best friend has a DAUGHTER named Brogan. Just sayin. I will miss you bad. Maybe you can come back as soon as JJWT gets a job.

Tiffany said...

You are a genius, whoever you are. Thanks for the ride.

Nan said...

You are following the plan. Listening to your husband's counsel. It is hard to be righteous. We'll find a way to go on without you. At least until next week when JJWT forgets that he said it and you return.

Melinda said...

I have absolutely loved reading your blog. You are seriously one of the funniest people and your writing is genius! Good luck in all your future endeavors!

Jo said...

Oh no!! I just found you a few days ago, and now you're leaving. Your blog is seriously funny. If you do shut it down, at least leave up what you've already written for a while? I've got catching up to do!! :)

Andrea said...

Seriously?? I am feeling a legitimate feeling of loss over this. You're kidding right? I hope so. This has been so awesome to read for literally YEARS...so if this is the end thanks for the laughs!! May we all be less high maintenance and judgmental, and more real and sincerely Mormon after reading this for so long ;)

LisaFisa said...

I'm so confused! I just discovered the brilliant amazingness that is your blog last week (from a Salon.com article about atheist feminists who love MMB, and like you are a bit perplexed by the whole thing. You give all of us sane Mormon mommies a voice, and I was looking forward to more....hmmmm...maybe this is just a great set-up for a great return, TAMN-style?

Sally said...

WHAT?! I just found you like, three days ago. You can't just leave like that? Is this for realsies?

Juli said...

To TAMN: *frownsmile* It's so sad that you and your husband aren't completely in sink, like my prince charming and me are. We'll totally pray for your marriage.

To the kindred spirit behind TAMN: You are 1000% brilliant and I will miss you like crazy! Thanks for all the good times; I'll eat two whole bites of a Cafe Rio salad in your honor! :)

Luella Downs said...

What?

mindy said...

How will I go on without you? I guess that since you won't be blogging about his birth story, I will name my baby boy (who is also due in May) Brogan. In your honor. I really really love you. You have made me laugh out loud more than any other person I've never met.

Carrie said...

i want to cry. ;-( my world is shattered.

SAHM: Surviving Assorted Home Mayhem said...

You forgot to include one thing we'll never know; if you went to see "Breaking Dawn" even though its content could be considered "inapropriate" (& more importantly what you thought about i!)

But seriously, I'll miss you. I can see where you wouldn't want your good-natured ribbing of all things Utah slash Mormon to affect things in your real life.

Best of luck!

Sarah said...

TAMN, are you just fishing for compliments again? If not, I will seriously miss you. Thank you for the many laughs!

jww said...

I hope this isn't for realsies. I will just have to go back and read all of your old posts over and over and over, that's all. YOU ARE BRILLIANT.

Cortney said...

Noooooooooo! TAMN, you can't do this to us!

Carrie Lynn said...

This is so depressing, but as long as you keep your blog up in the online world, I will be satisfied browsing old posts. Thanks for the genius.

Sarah Schulz said...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

To the writer of TAMN: But in all seriousness, thank you for this blog. I wish you the best in your endeavors. You have made my life totally kick-A! ;)

wendys said...

Please say it isn't true!

--H said...

Very funny. Ha ha ha. Can't wait for your next post.

Kathy said...

Please don't TAMN. We're all begging you. Who else's blog will I check every day who can give me a smile like you do? NOBODY'S that's who.

Booher Blogs said...

TAMN, It's totally working. Pretend you're never blogging again to get an outpouring of love and e-worship. P.S. I love you so much, and life without you would be stale and crusty.

Charlene said...

Um, TAMN...I don't expect Derek to have a wedding anytime soon...at least not one where there is a blushing bride in a white dress, well, I take that back, it may be that there would be a blushing somebody in a white dress...

No, seriously now, if this is a serious goodbye, this is a sincere thank you for all the laughs and near truths you've exposed us to. Sometimes when I see people acting like a TAMN, I just laugh inside, and realize I want to be considered a more down to earth person than a TAMN. This blog has truly helped me open my eyes when I've begun to edge over into TAMN like behavior.

Good luck to you, anonymous author. You've made blog life enjoyable for me.

Ellen said...

I think this is my fault. I just found you a week ago and am seriously addicted. I think the Big Guy is telling me I have to do other things with my time. I guess I will never have to make the decision of whether or not to post a comment to try to win something, and whether or not that is gambling, which is almost as bad as porn.

Alexandria said...

oh no!!!! are you serious :S

Jessica said...

Not OK.

I'm pretty sure once SLC hears about this, you'll be excommunicated.

I'm just sayin.

Erin said...

Seriously!?

I haven't cried this hard since 'Friends' ended!!

I'm hoping this is just an attempt for some validation... but, really, do you have to panic us? Why not just do a giveaway!?

thecapitall said...

Yeah, yeah. See you tomorrow ;)

Jillybean said...

Oh Tamner's NO!! You can't do this I can't believe that JJWT is being such a meanie!
Why don't you just start a new blog and not tell him about it? It would be kind of like how you've been getting cash back at the grocery store to pay for your GNO's after JJWT told you to stop spenting money and then when he asked why the grocery bill had tripled you told him how expensive it is to buy grocerys now that the twinners are almost two and your preggo and everything anyways does he really expect you to buy store brand stuff?
Just remember, that the most important thing in a marriage is honesty as long as it doesn't keep you from getting the stuff that you want.

b said...

I hope you're just craving attenshun, TAMNers, bc we love you.

E.m.K. said...

It's been awesome, but i think JJTW has it right. Good luck with whatever you're up to next!!!

Robin said...

You cannot go! I just found your blog this week and I have seriously been laughing my bootie off! STAY!

Kurtis and Iva said...

You will be missed! But where am i supposed to get my daily laugh from now?

Maren said...

Thank you for being seriously. so. awesome.

Melissa C said...

This cannot be fer reals, right? I am soooo sad, especially b/c I totally thought of you yesterday as I started my herbal cleanse since I was so tubbarlardy after the holidays. What am I going to do?

Good luck!

Amy said...

Oh no!! Please don't go!!

Valerie said...

Heartbreak. Is this a ploy for all your non-commenters to come out of the woodwork? If so, well played.

Scott and Jillian said...

I am sad, for rills. Thanks for all the laughs!

Heidi said...

You've helped me figure out what to do in order to get marred even though I'm officially way too old for anyone to even look at me twice! I don't know what I'll do now!

Little Lovables said...

if it's fur realz, than so sad to see you go and i wish you all the bestest luck in the world *fingers crossed you'll get yw pres in time for brogan to be born so you'll have tonz of babysitters!*

Kami said...

I'll miss ya, TAMN. It'll be fun going through the archives and picking out my favorite old posts of yours. :) Have fun moving on with your real life!!

It's All Good... said...

Crushed. Absolutely crushed. No sarcasm here!

Natalie said...

So I'm only the bazillionth person to say this but I just discovered your blog and now you up and leave. Sad day in America.

Janina Herbert said...

Thanks for the laughs....I really loved this blog! But if it's time for you to move on, then good luck with your life :)

Janina Herbert said...

Reading your blog has been SUCH fun - but if it's time for you to move onto a different area of your life then best of luck! (You were BRILLIANT!)

Domestic Diva said...

TAMN, don't go! Is this seriously for reals? It is going to be so hard on me!
If this really is goodbye, thanks for all of the laughs and mottos to live by. Where would I be without you and your wisdom?

Julie said...

Right now, all over the world (ok in zion and the pre-zionic states) people are sitting at Cafe Rio, unable to hold back the tears, crying into their pork salads. What did we ever do to deserve this???
I WILL meet you in that great anthro in the sky. I'll be the one pulling up in the silver/gray Range Rover, with Lake Pal highlighted hair and the most fab boots you've ever seen. Oh wait, that's you!

You are a genius. May they one day create a holiday Monday in your honor.

Mellifera said...

Dear TAMN-author,

Whether this winds up being a permanent break or not, please write a book someday and get famous! Or in other words-- the premiere LDS author today that people know about is Stephanie Meyer. PLEASE CHANGE THIS.

Big hearts, TAMNers! If anyone can do it, it's you!

Jake, Megan, Ryder and Emma said...

NO! it can't really be true. PLEASE don't go. I love your posts they make me laugh when I feel all serious! :( double BOO.

Camille said...

oh TAMN! My heart is seriously breaking right now! Every time my daughter wears the super cute dress I won on your fabulous blog I might just cry!!! I will miss you like so, so, so much!

Really though, the creator of this is amazing! You are so extremely talented. I wish you good luck in everything you do and hope we might get to meet the "real you" someday!

Aneesa Bee said...

I wondered how long the laughs would last--and I'm not sure if you're for real. But thanks. My favorite was the post where you called and told your infertile ?cousin? or ?aunt? that you "totally understood" after trying for a week. Thanks for the laughs

michal said...

is this like that time you were gonna go privat? or is this like for reals?

TAMN. Don't go.

The Mostess said...

Like my (not so awesome) ex-BF told me once...a breakup takes 2 people. So, according to that logic, this whole "quitting blogging" deal is a no-go for me. Until I decide to let you go.

Waiting for the next post!

Melinda said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO TAMN!!! Where will I go for guidance!??!?!

(And to the gal who brought her to life- you are brilliant!! Thank you for the exposure of our generation and the wild and crazy culture that can SERIOUSLY get out of control. Much lurve and sparkles.)

Steph said...

Sad, sad day. But it's been a great time. I've been reading since the beginning, and I even lived in DC the same summer you did-- why didn't we hang out??

But anyway, thanks for the laughs and the awesome entertainment. You are hilarious. And my favorite TAMN line ever?? "Also, yay birds." PURE GENIOUS. Haha. I'm not an idiot, just feeling TAMN-ish.

Megan said...

*sigh* :( frown...not frownsmile...
I suppose we're all going to have to start following our sister-in-laws' blogs...
But it's just not the same when they're for rills.

TAMNERS, DON't LeAve US!!!

Roberta said...

The best of luck to you. You are a brilliant writer and I've enjoyed your humor, your genius word choice, the delightful malapropisms, and of course the satire. It was incredibly fun to read you!

Motion DeSmiths said...

Just withold sex until JJWT gives you youre way.

Deveny said...

No!!! I will secretly hope this is just like all the other cry-for-attention posts (you know the ones) that bring you more validation & make you change your mind. Best. Blog. Ever.

Dani said...

Aw man. I have loved you. Keep being amazing.

Emily said...

Thanks for the fun.

Laura said...

127 comments as soon as you posted!? That's got to be the validation you were looking for. Please don't wait more than a few hours to tell us you're not really leaving.

Katrina said...

God be with u til u blog again!!

Witch will be like tomorrow, right?

Mrs. Dean said...

This is the saddest day of my entire life.

debbie said...

I haven't laughed hard enough to snort milk out my nose since elementary school... until I started reading your blog. Now I do it on a regular basis. If you're serious about not blogging anymore, bring on the Cymbalta.
(I honestly pray that you are writing a book or three if you aren't blogging.)

Jon and Sarah (but mainly Sarah) said...

is this for real???

Cheryl said...

You are brilliant. I will miss you. And I don't usually wear high hills.

jennica said...

Please don't go! I can't wait to see a post from you! and i don't want to miss all the great events coming up in your life!
im super hoping this is just a april fools joke in january. you would create something funny like that. cause your so funny.

Carrie said...

I hope he gets a new job quickly so you can be back!!!! You're my favorite blog EVER!!!

tenaciouslyyours.com said...

TAMNers! You are just breaking my heart girlfriend. When we meet in the great anthropologie in the sky, I plan to wear a super-cute pair of Seychelles heels and all Leifsdottir.

p.s. This means now we can't have a blog babyshower for Brogan. Hello?! I had SUCH good color schemes envisioned for the internet affair of the new decade!!!

xoxoxoxoxo

The Boob Nazi said...

Psh, you'll be back.

Chelsea said...

Ran out of ideas?
Creative juices stopped flowing?
Seriously, so sad.

Lynnette said...

WHA??? You DID tell him this is your family journal, right? It's for postearitey!

The Cook Nook said...

TAMN?! Um am I the only one that sees the fact that MAY is NOT 102 days away? Ummmm, that's late March/early April at best. What's going on here, girl?
Oh ps, I am pissed that you are a quitter and I think it makes you NOT very DARLING!

Laura said...

Don't leave me! You're the reason I can stay sane in Zion.

akathemom said...

Sad. I have loved reading this. Thanks for all the kicks, best of luck on your next thing!

dharvey said...

My eyes filled with tears as I read this, because I have read your blog since the very first day; and it's always been wonderful.

You're a brilliantly talented writer, and I'm so grateful that you shared your gifts and insight with the world. Now, THAT is service.

I will miss you with all my heart. Take care, and the very best to you always. XOXO, love you. :-(

Bridges said...

*{speechliss}*

karen said...

Thanks for the daily hilarity. I'll miss it, but BRAVO. It's been great.

me said...

I really hope this isn't true - I don't know how I'll survive life in Zion and the Jell-o Belt!!!!

Nikki said...

say it ain't so!!

Tish said...

no!!

Garbett Family said...

Dear Real TAMN: You have been a much loved part of our household... you will be missed. Thank you for it all... we wish you the best!

P.S. Noticed the advertisements are gone... this must be the real deal. :(

Porsche said...

We all knew it had to end eventually. Thanks for all your time and thought you put into these. Even though this is a satirical blog, you still helped out a lot of people.

Bravo, Good-night!

for realsies!

Anna said...

What? No!

cathycan said...

for rels?

The Singlutionary said...

Tragic. Truly tragic.

Courtney said...

Nooooo!!! This can't be true TAMN!! Thanks for the laughs. (and if this is for realsies, can the true author please show herself? :) Thanks!)

Court and Jill said...

For realsies? Plz no!!!

Alyse said...

TAMN, you will have to die from a freak flat iron electrocution accident or from breathing in too many fingernail polish fumes before I believe you are truly gone.

Snaps to you for a job well done! My fave SSB moment: "TAMNers Goes to Washington." Good stuff.

GladysIcanbee said...

what????? you're leaving? for realsies? BAAAAAAA....okay, where's the link for your going-away-give-away? I need a prize!

and if this is for realsies, so sad for me, thanks for the laughs.

Cari Dahl said...

NO TAMN NO.

samantha jane said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Please no TAMN! I love reading your blog. Why oh why do you have to leave! Blogging is like your purpose in life! I beg of you to not leave!

Jen said...

It's been incredible. I have literally hugged my iPad to my chest in laughter after reading your posts. I hate to see it end--you truly are a genius. My favorite TAMNism? Poligafrump. Honestly, best word ever. Thanks for the laughs. Standing ovation from me.

Nan said...

you're so righteous. following your family patriarch insane suggestion that you stop keeping your journal. He's sooo 2002. You haven't even given us your home address so we can picket. and send fan mail. If you are for realsies abandoning us, please don't take down the blog posts. I refer to them regularly. My faves (in no particular order): your 1st wedding anniversary, trying to decide who to vote for in 08, and your still single brother in NY. Will you try to get JJWT to move so you're in my ward (real TAMN, my ward already has several satire TAMN). May you over rule his heavy-handed interference in your electronic life and return to us tomorrow....please?

The Fishops said...

*sniff, sniff*. Thanks for all the laughs. For realsies.

And yeah... write a book!!!!

To the Creator:

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Your dead-on depiction of (occasional) Mormon insanity/cultural has been refreshing and bell-laugh inducing.

Could the real TAMN please step forward now so we can bow at the feet of your awesomeness? I hope you write a book about this endeavor. Thanks for the memories.

telemoonfa said...

I hope this isn't real. I love your blog! Please don't go. Please keep writing. Even if it's only once a week or once a month, that would be OK. Is this a fake break? Because you've done those before... please come back! Everybody loves you slash is intimidated by your awesomeness!!!!

Please tell me that I can at least buy this blog in book form to get me thru the days.

Laura said...

The ads are gone, the music is gone. It is over. :-( I'll miss you. Good luck and thank you for all the wonderful laughs!

samantha jane said...

Dear real TAMN:
If you really have to leave, could you tell us who you are?!

Please?

P.S. please don't remove the blog posts!

RaeLynn said...

Oh to bigger and better things...a book maybe? Thanks for sharing your sense of humor with us and for making us laugh at ourselves (and others...heh).

You are nothing short of a genius and I'll miss all your deep thoughts.

The Snow Queen said...

Awesome. I'll miss you.

LanaBanana said...

I, too would love to meet the real TAMN. You've been absolutely hilarious and dead-on. Thanks for the laughs!

Jen said...

Bravo, bravo, bravo.
What else can be said.
Seriously.

Kristen said...

Thanks for all the laughs! I've thoroughly enjoyed the moments I've spent reading your blog.

You ought to compile your posts into a book and write about how it all came to be and the experience of it all. It would be a best seller!

Thanks again and have a kick-a life!

elise said...

OMGOSH. The blog world is going to implode without TAMNers. Srsly.

Kathy/mom said...

Thanks for all the laughs!!!You have nailed the funny cultural quirks that we see all around us. You have made me aware of who I don't want to be like!!! You are a genius and I love you.!

Amalie said...

thanks for the laughs!

Dodi said...

Whoever you are, thank you. You always make me giggle.

Erin Badger said...

TAMN, the thought of you leaving brings an almost-tear to my eye and makes my heart sad :( We have loved and will miss you and I echo the other person who said BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!!! You rock. Wishing you all the best and hoping that you resurface in the future! Hugs n kisses!

Muum said...

sad! thanks for the serious fun!

Tay said...

Not even Rio every day will lift my spirits. And Diet Coke (so bad!)? It's just not enough either.

But fer realsies - this blog is amazing. I'm glad you had the sudden inspiration to have fun with this. Thx.

marissa said...

Thanks for making me feel better about myself when I see who I could've been if I'd been married at 18 :)

As an English teacher you always made me laugh-very cleverly written!

Mom D said...

Oh Tamn, I was enspired that you was leaving. Thank you for telling us, even tho it brakes my heart to peaces. A yearly reunion would be wonderful. Or a monthly visit from you, updating us on your fabulous life. You have made me laugh out loud more then wons. Best of luck with your adoreable fam and fab life. And please reconsider leaving. Its like when your favorite tv show gets cancelled. xoxoxo

heidihim said...

are you freaking kidding me????!!! You can't do this to me in the middle of winter I will fall into a deep depression!!! this is lame:(

tessa said...

You will be missed!

♥ Michele ♥ said...

No!!!! This blog is seriously hilarious! You can't go!! :(

Lisa said...

To TAMN:

First Oprah, now Mo-prah! Noooooo!

You can't go. There's so much we still need to learn from you! You never posted that tutorial on how to photoshop your children's portraits until their eyes glow and their noses are non-existent. Talk to JJWT about this, please. You only have to follow him when he's following the Lord. I'm not sure this qualifies.

To the woman behind the TAMN: I've been with you since your earliest posts, and I want to thank you so much for all the laughter you have added to my life. I hope you are on to bigger and better things, and that we will hear from you again.

Jill, Ty, Megan and Lillian Campbell said...

Congratulations on such a great "accidental success", and another echo - BRAVO! Thanks for the laughs!!

Gail said...

TAMN. My heart is broken. This has been my favorite blog of all time!

Julie said...

I have nothing funny or witty to say-- because I depended on you to do all that!! This is a great blog!

Sarah said...

Dear Creator of TAMN,

As an English teacher in Utah County, I have often used you as an example of perfect cultural satire. My students and I have laughed at your blog, and they have even written their own cultural satires.

As residents of Utah county, we want to thank you for keeping us all a little less TAMN-like

Melissa Bailey said...

Thanks for all of the laughter! You were one amazing writer, and we are all so sad! If you ever decide to come back, you have a great fan base waiting!

Ashley said...

:( I hope this is just a fake blog post!!!! if it is real, you should totally reveal the genius behind TAMN!

Cammee said...

So sad! I've loved each post. Best wishes!

Holly said...

I hope I run in to you next Summer at Lake Pal.
Until then, thanks for the laughs.

Missy W. said...

is this a joke? TAMN don't go!!!!
