Notice Chuck in the background going BONKERS. He had sat still long enough for pictures and had finally HAD IT.

Does Leta get the costume when Katie outgrows it? Cause you know she’s gonna want it.
Actually, Mr. Hex has a message for us now, you should recheck the site.
He is so busted! He seems to not know the force of commentary here!
Hex’s writing looks remarkably like the crap they make “intro to creative writing” students write, with too many adjectives to make a story interesting to anyone other than the idiot writer himself. I’ve written garbage like that in those classes, too. It involves major dedication to “shift-F7″, also known as the thesaurus in Word. Sad part is, his teacher probably told him it was amazing writing–some people eat that sh*t right up.
That boy should stop being such a pretentious poser and work on his “craft” a bit more…or maybe he’s just too interested in taking “edgy” photos of his pseudo-punk life to worry about how bad his writing actually is.
I can’t believe he had the nerve to copy your site design–imitation may be flattery, but plagerism is not. People like that make me want to vomit.
Im just confused about the “six each” on the buffallo wing goodness. 6?
When I make wings for my husband and I, we eat about 20 each. I mean, they’re little. Like chips.
It kinda disturbs me that she’s licking her lips… or that somebody would choose to publish said photo.
I had to laugh though. Hilarious!
My god, Hex, how about this. Your writings are just little stories, so no big deal if someone copies them and claims them as their own. And if her stylesheet is so simplistic, why didn’t you just make your own? Not real big with the thinkin’ are you?
Can you believe this dude’s grammar and spelling. Lack of capitalization. Lack of apostrophization on “its.” Inappropriate usage of an ellipsis.
I wish I saw the original, before the changeover. Does anyone have a screenshot? To defend this guy a little, Dooce is one of many sites clearly influenced by CSSZENGARDEN.
But blatant ripoffs, this is not acceptable.
he’s got just an email address now. The troll….
Seems the hexagram guy now is now pouting…he’s put up an email link, but I found a cached page on the internet with his real one:
CSSZENGARDEN?! Why haven’t I heard of this before?!
Now I wish even more that I had talent to make beautiful looking sites.
In defense of Hex’s writing: he is attempting to do 50,000 words in 30 days. http://www.nanowrimo.org. I saw some of the comments that people left before the site was taken down. No offense but don’t you guys have something better to do on a sunday? Though it did work and he did take the plagerized site down. but sheesh glad some of you wern’t on my playground in grade school.
dooce, do you have a counter on your site? because the copy-cat does now – so I guess technically, it’s YOUR counter since you’re directing most of your traffic to that site! woo! you so popular!
ps. i want katie’s dress. the puffed sleeves, the cross-ribbon on the front – absolutely beeeeuuuutttiieeeefullllll!!
Hmm…CSSZENGARDEN isn’t really all that similar to dooce.com.
I love this picture Heather! It’s classic.
CSS Zen Garden seems to be a site that features the CSS designs of hundreds of different designers, all with the same content. You click on a menu to see the different designs…
Duct Tape Jesus
Google’s cache of the site:
I guess imitation is the best form of flattery. It’s still kind of creepy, though.
I am amused that the Google ads included a site advertising a “Daniel Boone Bowie Knife.”
(The conflation of historical persons only adds to my amusement.)
for those who may wonder, there is indeed a hooters in utah. it’s located in midvale, which is just a part of the suburban sprawl that surrounds salt lake city.
Go ahead. Call me an idiot.
But my first thought at said hacker’s site was … why the HELL do nanowrimo? I’ll never understand that “event.”
Then I noticed the layout.
But I STILL think I’m write in both.
And rock on, lil’ princess.
what are buffalo wings? We don’t have them here.
Good story. WHO did you say got the last wing? In the end?
I live in Buffalo. The wings here are GREAT. Everyone is fat here because it snows all the time and we eat huge amounts of wings all winter. We also have Buffalo Wing Soup; which is essentially Cream of Chicken with a bunch of Frank’s Red Hot added at the end of cooking. It is very good. We also put Frank’s Red Hot diluted with a touch of vinegar on sandwiches. Hooray Buffalo!!!
If you would like to know the origins of the Buffalo Wing please go to http://www.anchorbar.com. It is a nice place that used to be a prostitute hangout/ dive bar back in the days of old.
I would love to see a picture of buffalo wings make it to the daily photo entry. Anyone with me?
Yeah Buffalo wings!! I’m with you!
My day can completely blow
……and yet, all it seems to take to bring it back together is a sassy tongued princess flanked by your friendly neighborhood Cujo (does that say something about me?)
Now that’s photographic genius
Thanks for the laugh Dooce, and thank Chuckles for all the chuckles
Did I miss a mob mentality taking action on the internet? Was it an ugly site…I mean sight? Group dynamics can be scary at times.
Buffalo wings are just purely yummerific.
They are chicken wings, but with a nice spicy zing. mmm mmm. Why do they call them “buffalo wings”? Now, I’m not too sure, but I think that it has to do with their origin (Buffalo, NY)..where the wings are soooo good.
There is a link up there about the origin, but I haven’t had a chance to look at it yet. Just about to make my way there.
Love in Christ,
P.S. Dooce you should really take a picture of the wings. Make us more hungry, why don't you? :)
There was an earthquake in Utah. You OK?
They are, likely, perfectly fine. You, actually, probably knew about it before they did. An eathquake with a magnitutde 4.1 is not that strong (I lived in So Cal during many quakes, most a lot stronger and closer to me than this -I think- was to them.) The quake was in the south east corner of Utah, they are in the north/central part of the state. http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/maps/utah_map.html (If memory serves, they are in or around Salt Lake. Forgive me if I am wrong.)
They probably didn’t feel a thing.
I REALLY hope I’m right…
Utah has earthquakes! I hate earthquakes! They are why I left So Cal. he Earth just Is Not supposed to move if my feet are on it!
its obviously a photo of Chuck….with accessory princess
I am just getting all caught up and I LOVE the family picture and love love love George’s “interesting” post!! MORE GEORGE!!
(Kidding, Heather. I still adore you.)
And also, you use duct tape to shut up a baby? That is SUCH a good idea. And here I’d always tried stuffing their mouths with cotton balls. Thanks for the tip!!
(Also, I’m kidding.)
yesterday picture was soo cute! today’s as well, but oh there was SO much cuteness posted yesterday
What’s all this talk about stolen stuff from Dooce’s website? huh? Am I missing something?
that story totally shows how much you love him. because you could have put TWO extra wings on the tray and made it even-steven.
Heehee… I was first! Have a super day, everyone!
Love the Tiara! The girls here wear them, but without the right context, its not nearly as adorable
HAHAHA. Chuck pulls the picture all together.
This picture is another one of the many that make me think you guys must live in a really beautiful area. I am utterly jealous.
Hey! That’s the costume I was going to wear!
Can you find the hidden Chuck?
Her Royal Highness might be the same age as my niece, who is obsessed with princesses and would wear a costume like that every day if she could.
That is a costume I would have sold my soul to have as a child. What a lucky little girl–and cute to boot!
What a beauty! And what a nice lil tongue )
I like how the colors of the leaves and the gold of the costume work together. Nice.
Is that what happens in Utah? Little girls never cut their own bangs and are thereby rewarded with perfect costumes? Damn, I grew up in the wrong state!
