What happened to elizardbits?

Did elizardbits migrate to a new account? I saw that her account is disabled and that makes me sad.

No. She is taking a break that may or may not be permanent but there's no BND.

(just kidding, it's me)

Well, even if she doesn't come back, her tumblr's hilarious. Hope she's well.

I took a 4 month break and not one person asked about me and I didn't get get a post like this! I feel unwanted and unloved. Mostly I blame you.

Anyone know what happened to cjorgensen? I haven't seen him since we all installed that killfile script.

Nonononononono.

I get my daily LOLs from elizardbits. Whatever shall I do now?

Actually, I'm elizardbits. Dobbs is taking (another) break.

I noticed her absence a while back, but her account was still open. I hope it's just a hiatus and that she'll be back dealing out the lolz soon.

We could try to lure her out with poffins.

No official info on the mod side, as far as we know it's just a break. She's very welcome to come back once her secret mission is complete.

Though they are almost certainly better for you, I have noticed that elizardbits don't soothe your t-zone with as much smokey, honeyed warmth as plain old regular lizardbits.

I was seriously giving info at the top of the thread, bee-tee-dubs. Aside from the parenthetical.

The plan to remove fun from Metafilter proceeds apace. Take no notice of the fact that The Whelk has not been heard from.

Is there an elizardbits signal at Mod headquarters? So when things really heat up in a thread, they can shine it in the sky and she'll swoop in to remind us of the important things in life?*

i really hope this break is not permanent, because elizardbits is hands down one of my very favorite mefites and i am sad without her.

I hope her secret mission is winning a million dollars on Survivor. Because having one of my favorite mefites win $1mil on one of my favorite shows would rock so much.

Everything I know about Teen Wolf I have learned from elizardbits' tumblr.

I suspect this has given me a rather oddball perspective on Teen Wolf.

Dude, I'm right here.

Srsly, though, elizardbits is fine I'm sure. This is just the circle of mefite life.

Heh. I made a MeTa sorta like this one, wondering about jonmc a while back, when he signed off Mefi. But I got a note from a mod saying that kind of post isn't really encouraged. OK, I answered back, fair enough. But I guess they're kosher sometimes! Whatever, it's all good, as they say. At any rate, I was delighted to notice, just yesterday, that good ol' jonmc has rejoined us. Yay!

Man, this has been pretty meh. The return of Brandon and Phillip is pretty boring.

Last night in the shower I had this great idea to get her address from like Greg Nog or someone and get a cake delivered with a message like "We Miss You Love From Mrs. Pterodactyl and All of Metafilter" but then I woke up this morning and it seemed a little creepy/privacy invading. That said, what is privacy compared to surprise cake?
posted by Mrs. Pterodactyl at 4:00 AM on February 26, 2013 [24 favorites]


What a lot of people don't know is that elizardbits is actually a basenji who's just really good at typing. And a few weeks ago, I threw a stick really far, and she went after it, and I haven't seen her since.

So she's probably just still looking for the stick.

Based on the readings from this home-made tachyon detector, it seems she's vanished in the same sort of incident as other once-prominent users like karno5, ProphetMonger, and qlb. Did we ever find out what happened to them?

It has been rather quiet around here.

Too quiet.

Usually I sort of roll my eyes at these sorts of inquiries, either because it feels like it should be the user's business if they want to disappear without fanfare, or else because the fanfare that arises seems a little strokey and indulgent ... but elizardbits, damnit! People like that deserve all the strokey indulgence we can muster.

Hope she comes back soon.
posted by DingoMutt at 5:12 AM on February 26, 2013


Strokey indulgence is probably the most romantic phrase I can think of.
posted by villanelles at dawn at 5:13 AM on February 26, 2013 [2 favorites]


And she should definitely come back.

I think she might prefer tacos.

I also think about Greg Nog in the shower.

Are we sure she wasn't kidnapped by the cabal and put to work in the mines beneath AskMe?

Yeah I'm going to close this up. It's fine wondering about elizardbits and we're all hoping she's fine and back after whatever she's up to but an open Meta thread inquiring about someone who has chosen to disengage is probably not the best way to let someone do that.
