I promise I’m smiling behind the camera, maybe

    i agree with robin… i have the little plastic jobbies (their formal name) and they are a pain in the ass. my 1.5 year old has learned how to take them out and is all, “oh you’re supposed to put things in there? super!!”

  • Danielle

    that was really odd…. I saw the holiday masthead last night… then this morning it was gone? even though it was bright and shiny (refreshed) this morning… then it is back again.

    I hear the theme to the Twilight Zone.

    are you playing with my mind?

    hello purty lady!

  • Danielle

    ah… well, caroline evidently had the same problem. so at least it is 2 of us who witnessed the weirdness.

    the number thing is a browser issue. I use Firefox/Mozilla and they show up. They also show up with internet exploder, I mean, explorer.

  • Darcie

    Outlet covers are nothin’! She’ll want to empty out your kitchen drawers, too. Access to the cleaning supplies will, more than likely, be her first goal. The fun is only beginning!

  • Carol

    Dooce… are you on a Mac or PC? only because all of this stuff is starting to fascinate me. I’m wondering how you do it all. I love all your mastheads!! You’re a very talented designer.

  • JP

    Plug covers and cupboard locks are all very well and good…unless you gave birth to Houdini reincarnated. Basically, I spent the money for no reason.

    I’m just saying…

  • Carol

    am i first? or last?

  • Nick

    You’re so not smiling…

    Neither, now.

    I haven’t been able to get to my Ajax for the last 11 years because of those damn locks.
    It’s such a tease too. I can peak in there and see the SOS pads and Dawn dishsoap.
    Anyone ever read the book “The lady who cut off her leg at the Maidstone gallery” or something like that…it has a bunch of really off the wall stories and one is about a set of parents that went over the top with child proofing their house.
    It’s…uh…scary how far people will go.
    Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find the Drano I think I left in the girls room.

  • Danielle

  • Caroline

    Can I still make a comment in this picture?

  • Carol

    Aaron… I waited and waited at the SF airport last night. Where were you? I shoulda known you’d stand me up. You and your big penis are ALL TALK!!

  • http://aaronthomasnelson.blogspot.com Aaron

    I’m here for you, baby. You just let me know…

  • Caroline

    OH, hata. Got it. I was thinking in my head “Hot tah?” Anywho, I’m closing in on 70 hours on coffee. My final’s at noon. So, yea, I’m in an especially odd mood.

  • Girl.A

    Sounds like someone’s *projecting* a bit.

  • Caroline

    Doocifer Fairy, let me be last damnit!

    good luck on your final, Caroline!

    (hee hee)

    *now* I’ll let you be last.

  • http://aaronthomasnelson.blogspot.com Aaron

    Girl.A–Seriously! Carol, stop *projecting*!

  • Caroline

    Thanks Lulu.

    What’s with the bold word game? I don’t follow.

    Joining the raving peanut gallery to say, “I love the hair.”

    So, Leta is heading to mobility like a herd of screaming turtles. Plastic plug covers are just the begining. I can’t wait to hear about the first time you leave the room only to return to find Leta happily sleeping under the couch. It is comfy there, you know. :)

    Have agrand day.

    Oh, and, of course, All hail GEORGE!

    Awww, let Caroline be last–she stayed up for 70 hours to study for a final that started twenty minutes ago.

    So, on Caroline’s behalf:


  • Carol


    I don’t really get it either, but it’s fun, no? Some of it is from comments last night.

    not that anyone will see it… but _I’ll_ know. ;)

  • http://aaronthomasnelson.blogspot.com Aaron

    All right. I’ll stop. That was so “yesterday.”

    I’ll think of something funner.

  • Caroline

    Ha, still last! Thanks Lulu, you’re cool. I think I’m gonna get some sleep. I got a 94%, by the way. Whoever said cramming doesn’t pay off?

  • Jesse

    Aaron, your website says you’re 31, but you act like you be 13. Serious. Rookie.

  • Melanie S

    Yeah for the Leta baby!

    I’m doing the “Happy Happy Joy Joy” dance!

  • Melanie S

    Another thought…

    Invest in the straps that prevent dressers, bookshelves and other large items from falling on your little frog.

    My son was injured by a shelf in his closet that was 8 feet tall. It had a bottom unit with 3 drawera and a top unit that had a door and a 2 shelves. He was 18 months old and got into the closet, opened the 3 drawers causing the unit to tip. The entire thing fell on. He broke his arm and collar bone, and was not brething when we found him.

    Jesse, I was talking to Carol. Thanks.

    You could have an entire separate website for your commentors in all their strange, brilliant, not-so-brilliant, mysterious, occasionally funny ways. Really, you could.

    And – congratulations, Fish. He’s gorgeous.

  • http://www.gigglinguniverse.blogspot.com Em

    Yeah for Leta!!!!! But you are right to be scared – it will never be the same once she is mobile!

  • al

    Dooce/Heather why is your daughter going to therapy???? I must have missed what is wrong with her development. The Dr.

  • Jesse

    Dude, don’t look now but you are talkin to the whole friggin world here. I can’t feel you, man. If I didn’t know better I would think you are skipping junior high and pretending to be your uncle.

    At least if you’re going to *bold* words to get attention, how bout making it either clever enough or stupid enough for the rest of us to feel you.

    Anne Said, “You could have an entire separate website for your commentors in all their strange, brilliant, not-so-brilliant, mysterious, occasionally funny ways. Really, you could.”

    I thought a list would be a good idea. Save Dooce some bandwidth.
    Or at least a chat room so we can all talk…or in some cases, play weird bold writing games, or talk about WKRP or Captain Stoobing, or just share stuff that is undooce related. (wait, is there stuff undooce related?)

    I’m on a list for the old TV show My So-called life (yes, it’s been like 10 years since it aired, we all became friends and didn’t have the heart to shut down the list)
    It varies on what we talk about, but the friends I have made there are priceless.

    How much bandwidth did I just waste talking about that?
