    Suzanne: It’s possible to cheat from one PC. I won’t tell you how; you ladies will have to figure it out on your own.

  • Suzanne

    Women aren’t dumbasses you know.

  • Rebekah

    GO SUZANNE!!! That’s my girl!!!

  • Lori

    I just wanted to let you know that my two daughters (11 and 7) absolutely love the pics of Leta…they can hardly wait for your site to pop up to see her…she is such a little “pumpkin pie”!!

  • Suzanne

    Young man, it’s called rhetoric.

    Knowing your audience. I know many people don’t want to mess with deleting temp internet files or cookies, etc, so I gave them the non-technical option.

    Those who know about cache don’t need to be told.

  • April

    Your comments are starting to sound like the six-minute Louvre I read about, you know, where people rush through with a comment on the key pieces just to get it done in six minutes flat. So, Fish writing “Big eyes” to be the first commenter is like a six-minute Louvre tourist looking at the Mona Lisa and saying “Nice smile” before rushing off for the exit.

  • Emma

    That picture was taken at Grandmommy’s house! In the background I see the patriotic rug that Chuck wiped his poopy fritos-smelling feet on.

  • Kath

    I have to hand it to you, Heather…it would be so difficult for me to look into those huge expansive eyes and tell her no. Instead, I’d probably hand her more candlesticks and give her pointers on throwing them.

    Good thing I don’t have kids.

  • Littlehoney

    Danielle: I can see the date/time but I can’t see the comment number.

    Edamame: What is this I hear about tummy trouble? I have the opposite problem that Dooce has, but Edamame hasn’t been a trigger for it. It’s just yummiee. :)

  • Marti

    Don’t know ya; gotta love ya.
    you bus me up!

  • Hannah


  • Broch

    I wonder how many other people comment here just to get more traffic to their site… I do, hell, I’ll admit it. The content is good here, and I love to read it, but the only reason I comment is to get traffic to my own weblog. DAMN!!! Did I drink truth serum this morning or what????

  • Biggest Apple

    Does she have a Votive in her hand??

  • molly

    Ok Broch, so of course I had to go and read your site.. The Freaks abound entry had me laughing. I work in IT also Gotta love the Holier than though types in this buisness………………………………………

  • Dipali

    Anybody noticed todays ad ‘Avent Niplette’ .. so funny..tee hee..

  • andrea

    I lurve Leta!

  • Janie

    God, she is gorgeous.

  • JP

    I would just like to say that two pregnancies and breastfeeding both children did NOTHING to my boob size. I got totally punked.

  • Jenny

    So, am I watching Clay Aiken’s Christmas Special on NBC channel 8? No…maybe.

  • Gia on Guam

    re: Knitted Uterus…I’ve now been inspired to attemp to crochet man parts. Now *THAT* is something worth cuddling up to…and it won’t infect me with sperm.

  • Julie

    JP – Did you start out big? If not, then you did get punked! What’s the use of the first trimester if it’s not for the booby fairy?

  • Julie


    Turn the channel…slowly now…you can do it…turn it to any other channel…fight the urge to turn it back…come on girl…you can do it…

  • Emily

    A guy who over-emotes with his eyes while whining about *love* –

    And his last name sounds like “Achin”

    *My achin’ ears.*

  • Gia on Guam

    Not to brag or anything…okay, I really am bragging…I’m sporting D’s and I can still go bra-less…zero crease here. I can’t wait to see what size these puppies get when I’m ready to spawn.

  • JoJo

    Clay Aiken.

  • Katy

    Ok, raise your hand if’n you clicked on Gia’s name to see a pic of her high and mighty Ds.

  • Rebekah

    Oh my god Katy… I did… click to see… I was let down… tee hee

  • Julie

    I live in Clay Aiken’s hometown – Raleigh, NC. Let me tell you – his biggest fans here are old women and gay men. TV stations adore him here for some reason. They have a fan club for him called the Clay Mates. Pretty much everyone else in Raleigh hates him and wishes he wouldn’t associate himself with us.

  • becky

    now that i think about it, this does look like a perfect, candleholder-throwing pose.

  • Leon

    ….me thinks someone swapped out the normally decaf. brew at the Fish household with industrial strength

    Either that or it’s sleep deprivation caused by the arrical of the new guppy

    Probably the latter

  • becky

    fish? when did this turn into a fish site? i thought it was dooce’s. huh – i guess you miss a lot when you don’t read all of the comments.

  • Katrina

    I introduced my boyfriend to your site before Leta was born and we had the joy of watching this all unfold.
    But now he goes ga-ga over all her cute pictures and insists he wants one just like her…LOL. Not like I’m ready for that…but yeah, adorable kid!

  • kate

    Doesn’t she look just a *tiny* bit like a little old granny? In this picture?

    Don’t. Yell.

  • ryan

    Am I last?! hehe (wink)

  • Baby Cheese-us

    As bad as the scoliotic cow??

    “Holy row over celebrity Nativity in London

    Wax work figures of England soccer captain David Beckham and his wife Victoria appear as Joseph and Mary, with Australian singer Kylie Minogue as the angel, in a new celebrity nativity scene at Madame Tussaud’s, in London.”

  • Church condemnation
  • mydogwontbite

    you have no idea how happy the pics of your leta make me…you are one lucky mom.

  • Danielle

    Amanda B. I just had to check out the scrotal safety commision… and my favorite part is this

    “A lady-friend can quickly become a lady-enemy where your scrotum is concerned. Play it wise and establish a “safe-word” during rough play. The Scrotal Safety Commission would like to recommend the safe-word: “Peachy-keen” ”



    HA! I about bust a gut over that one.

  • Danielle

    Oh, and because I don’t know anything about computer cheating, I didn’t quite understand how to get past the first page (“enter 0-9 or A-F” or some such gobbledy-gook) until someone explained it to me.

    But when I finally voted, Dooce was at 8%.

  • Danielle

    I’m trying to decide if in the next moment, she grabbed the camera lens…

    or if her hands should have castanets in them


  • Desiree

    Hey Heather.

    Found a site you kight enjoy. It’s worth taking a look at.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Is this interpretive dance, or is Leta winding up to lob something at the camera?

  • jenn

    ….is dancing with me.

  • Caroline

    Wow, I’m at the top. Can’t see the picture though.

  • Joel LaTondress

    241! Yippie! Beat that – suckers at the top.

    That’s a great picture.

  • Kimberley H.

    “signature color” … that just made me think of that movie where Julia Roberts is all southern and Dolly Parton is in it, too. Dooce is a southern belle, and I see that Leta has also inheirited the “Look, I’m positively GORGEOUS!” gene. Darn mormon + southern genes.

  • Fish

    gee, I missed a lot.

    I would’ve talked all yo ears off about breastfeeding, though. My wife (well endowed to begin with) has “benefitted” from having our child. The problem is, us poor spouses aren’t allowed to touch.

    Alanis Morrisette should sing about THAT.

  • Val

    What’s the fascination with being first?
