Johnny Rebellious smiling?! What has the world come to?

I want to take a minute to thank all the Whiskeroonis who talked me out of quitting yesterday (or rather, considering quitting). I've been going through a rough patch these past couple weeks with personal issues, and I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I want to thank each and every one of you for snapping me out of my Whiskerino funk. If it weren't for you guys, I might not be here today. This is truly an incredible community.

Thanks again, guys. I won't let you down.

I don't know how Whiskerino would have gone on without you. We would have, but it would have sucked.

You could never quit. WHO would lead Team Rebellious? I mean, I love the rebellion; I also love a good theme day.

You've been one of my favorite participants from the start. I was bummed when we couldn't hang in Skokie and I really hope you make it to the throwdown.

I didn't see it and my heart sank. Are you not making plans to be there?

Thank GAAWWWD. we have to hang out at the TD and if you would've quit, it would have broke my heart. you have to see this through. we all care for you and want to drink beers with you too much.

Every one else was in prison. He was happy to not be in prison, and also happy that his favorite sports team was playing another team on the radio and he was listening and a commercial for hot dogs came on and then he heated some up and HE WON AT THE INTERNET. **balloons**

Johnny Rebellious says:
@michaeljstraub, @ozzynelson, @yogibeard and @rolfbastard:

I'm not 100% sure that I'll be able to make it to the throwdown -- that's why my name isn't on the list yet. Trust me, I'm trying my damndest to get there. I would absolutely hate it if I wasn't able to attend. I've been looking forward to it since the beginning.

BryanHunter says:
Dude, I'm sure glad some folks cheered you up. I've had very little time lately to comment, but it would have really sucked if you left.

Throwdown! You should round up a van-load of Chicago beardos and road-trip down. I've driven it dozens of times. Seven hours straight on I-65; perfect length for great conversations.

Tolleson says:
This was a shock to my system to see such a happy face on you. So glad to see you stayin' for more growin' & showin'!

Here's to you making it to Nashville!

Katie says:
Thanks for the love, friend. And of course, it's always nice to see a smiling bearded face.

Whiskerino is such a short-lived thing that quitting would be regrettable, I think. I'm kind of reconsidering the throwdown for that very same reason but I also have money issues and a lot of anxiety right now. (I just graduated college, I'm unemployed, & I have bills to pay.)

Ace says:
im glad you are not leaving.

you leave me a comment most everyday. i appreciate that. its fun to read comments you know? if i had internet at home, i would probably return the favor.

Johnny Rebellious says:
@Katie, you're very welcome for the love. And I'm in a bit of a pickle myself with the throwdown (my sister is coming into town from Alaska around that time, I'm a little tight on cash at the moment, and a loved one is going through some real rough stuff right now). Hopefully we can both find a way to make it there.

HiImTerry says:
There are 4 Johnny's confirmed for the Throwdown, none of the are Rebellious. I hope you can make it.

P-Funk says:
beautiful smile there, mr. rebellious. i was just catching up on your sleeping woes and i think our fellow whiskeroonies gave ya some solid advice- namely, pay attention to your intakes and activity levels and how it correlates with your overall energy levels and ability to relax and sleep. for what it's worth, my wife's also an herbalist/nutritionist and i'd happy to ask for some tea recommendations, etc. if you're interested.

btw- fav'd for the smile.
