i miss Murphy

undated photo of Murphy from Memorial Day 2011

there, i said it.

i’m still not ready to talk about his departure from chez troll before christmas, but yes, he’s gone. no, nothing’s wrong with him, he’s doing just fine.

no, i’m not fine at all.

i’ve sat down like forty times to write about what happened, but every time i try i just can’t do it. not yet anyway.

in the mean time, for all of you who miss seeing Murphy ’round these parts, i’ve added a little widget that i stole from “fr.” z. i know it’s not the same thing, but it’s all i have right now, and i thought i’d share it with the rest of you. (go ahead, feed him some pellets, get him to do tricks, it’ll help with the pain.)

i just know that we’ll make it through this.

we always do.

Murphy, if you’re reading this, please come back.

  1. I just fed your digital hamster like 5,000 pellets.

    Sorry. You might want to change the bedding in there.

  2. Thank you for the other hamster. He is better than Murphy because I can play with him. So I don’t need Murphy anymore now and we can stop being sad.

    I have been making him follow the white arrow all around without giving him anything. Is this wrong? If it wrong does it need a confession or is it just venal?

    Does that hamster have a name too? Can we call him Murphy the second?

    Thank you again for the new better hamster!

  3. I just found out that you can make Murphy the second dance to the Baby Come Back song! Just turn on the music and then move the white arrow around Murphy the second, following the rhythm of that song. I bet that the old Murphy could not do that.

  4. Mark P Shea Says:

    Did Murphy leave because of a disagreement about liturgical purity or was he kicked out due to suspicions of harboring incorrect thoughts? Were there Jews or Masons involved? Is this something I can somehow take responsibility for? Let me know if I can help.
