    It’s amazing how a couple of days away from your computer reminds you that you didn’t really need it anyway. Until you get back in front of that screen, get sucked in again, and wonder how you spent that weekend without access to your fantasy baseball team.

    And remember the rule, if its still in the box 6 months from now, you don’t need it. Throw it out!

    This, from a woman who still has shit in boxes from a move 9 years ago!

    Dooce, you should staple bologna all over your stepfather’s walls. If he gives you any grief, just say you did it as an art statement. Then run like hell.

    Plan for moving:

    1. Invite friends to help
    2. Hook up stereo
    3. Crack beer (Yes, even if it is 9:00 a.m.)
    4. Lug box in

    Repeat #3 and #4 as needed.

    it’s completely exciting to move into a new house.

    i swear to god i’ll send brittney along so she’ll be there in time for the housewarming.

    (stereo is indeed crucial to moving mood, big open rooms are really fun too, and buy flowers.)

    A day without the Internet is like a day with sunshine.

    If you love the Internet, let it go free. If it doesn’t come back, it wasn’t meant to be.

    When I say “Inter,” you say “Net.”


    I’ll go back to my site now.

    1)Bologna, casually dropped into the heating duct in the corner of the room, is far more insidious and sly.
    2)Unplugging is good. Blogs are the new crack.
    3)Fried Bologna is so, so fine. As part of a greater “Grilled Bologna and Cheese”, it approaches godhead.

    Just a week ago I found out that radio stations continue to broadcast AFTER I turn of the radio. The BASTARDS!!! Any plans for Stickley furniture?

    this is one reason i love dooce: fierce validation of bologna as fine cuisine. In my baby white-trash days, my aunts & I would always sneak down to the kitchen and make rounds of bologna + ketchup + wonder bread sandwiches (we were too young to use the stove, so frying them was out)…we lived on those things! And now I see no shame. Nope. None.

    Happy moving time…I miss you already. You’re becoming a grown woman right before our eyes. Aww.

    Having your own house totally rocks. I love my house. I even love shampooing the carpet in my house because I have two little chihuahuas that pee all over the place out of _SPITE_!! Hey! The humans are NOT paying attention to me. Time to slink off and pee in the closet.

    I hope that you greatly enjoy your new home (how’s that for a split infinitive?). After having my own home, I hope that I never have to do without one. Maybe when I totally loose my mind and end up like my grandfather it won’t hurt me to live in apartment-like structure, bu I’m not laying any money on that.

    Am I wrong to think that it was kind of cool that when my grandfather’s mind was going that after five minutes he would forget that you were visiting and then it was like a whole ‘nuther visit?

    Ah, Arts and Crafts bunglalows. Rented one for 3 1/2 years, owned a bigger one for another 7 1/2. Couldn’t keep either one warm in winter and the sump pump in the latter would always quit working at inopportune times, such as in the midst of a hurricane, but otherwise I loved ‘em both and envy you and Blurbomat.

    The worst part about packing and moving is all the boxes of “Misc.” Misc. really sucks because the only thing more irritating than trying to pack Misc. is trying to unpack it, especially if you’re like me and the majority of your boxes say Misc.

    Arts and Crafts bungalow. Is that the kind made out of popsicle sticks and Elmer’s Glue-All?
