Kat does Mat (leave)

Loyal minions!

So if you watched the NN weekend magazine, you’ll have heard the news.  I am now officially on maternity leave from the show.  It was a moment we all knew was coming, but packing up my dressing room table was still a sad moment for me, even though I know I’ll be back in about six months or so.

I’m going to miss coming into the office.

I’m going to miss bantering with our writer Greg, or playfully trading insults with our cameraman Hart.

I’m going to miss writing the Naked Nerd, arranging interviews, and tooling around conventions armed only with a killer PVC outfit, a microphone, and my sardonic, razor-sharp wit.

I’m going to miss my minions, especially my most loyal minion, Threk, who has been my most avid supporter since I joined the show.
And, let’s face it…I’m going to miss norks.  Norks in the dressing rooms, norks in the studios, norks lining the walls, norks in the halls, norks on the street, and norks on the beach.

I’m being a bit melodramatic.  This isn’t the end.  This is just a break.  I’ll be back, and in the meantime, I won’t be incommunicado.  I’ll be on twitter, on my blog here, and I might even post the occasional video blog or two.  I’m going to take care of my new family, and then when I have that fully under control, I’m gonna come back to NN, and I’m going to take care of YOU, minions.

(Wow, that sounded like a threat, didn’t it?)

Anyway, I’ll see you on the show again around September.  In the meantime, see you here!

    All I can wish is all luck and happiness in the world for you and your baby, Kat. And be sure that all your fans (minions, actually) will be here waiting for your return later this year.

  • Threk

    I like the sound of that threat!

    I’m sure that absolutely nobody will be surprised when I say I’ll be waiting patiently yet eagerly for your return.

    That is a lot of awesome stuff to miss. Hopefully you’ll find taking care of your little one as rewarding as I found helping take care of my niece (I did have the advantage of getting good nights of sleep that week though)

    Wishing you the best
    Your Loyal Minion

    Come on Kat, you could’ve got some one to take care your bottom half during the last couple of months and kept your promise! Totally, kidding. May you have a relaxing and blissful maternity leave we’ll be anxiously awaiting your return because no one could do your voodoo, like you do. Merry gestation!?

  • Phil

    Best wishes for your upcoming blessed event. May the labor be short, the delivery swift and your son healthy as all get-out!
    Your loyalest minion,

    Nope…haven’t forgotten you yet. Big gentle bear hug.

  • Jim - Florida

    Still remember you…kiss on your cute nose.

    Hey Kat,

    Glad to here that you are well and whilst not enjoying being captive to your body, embrace the chance to be more nerdy.

    I prescribe a diet of
    - More Star Trek
    - More Green Lantern
    - More Xbox
    - Avoid socks
    - Take photo of your feet to remember what they look like
    - Promise not to call your child, Mini Me…

    Best Wishes from half a world away. I will miss your banter every day on NN, and hope you embrace your blog while you are away.
