    We really need sound clips on this site. You get to HEAR all the incredible cuteness and we have to imagine it. NOT FAIR.

    having spent a whole helluva lotta time in texas, i’m not sure that place is a step up from byu.

    i’m just sayin.

  • Dayna

    Aw, GEORGE! We will miss him so.

    Leta and the Chuckinator are so precious.

  • http://www.dawn-unplugged.blogspot.com Dawn

    It looks like Leta might actually be growling at Chuck ~ Is there any chance of a special series of ‘bed head’ pics coming to a theater near us soon … please? Happy New Year Armstrong Family & the Congressman

  • Christie Faith

    Being a native texan, I must stick up for my lovely state! it’s perhaps not the greatest place on Earth, but there are lots of lovely women and friendly people. Cities like Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio have a lot to offer in way of entertainment and culture. I’m certain that whatever school George is attending is better than BYU :)

    We miss you too! ;-)
    Leta and Chuck are so damn cute.

  • MrsDoF

    There’s a weird connection going on in my mind, so I checked the Archives. On 12/26 Holly Schmidt comment #121 asked if GEORGE! was perhaps in Dallas last week? Then I checked some more and found a picture of The BROTHERS BOONE posted 9/29. Now GEORGE! is heading home to Dallas.
    Is it really all in my head? Say I’m not crazy because going to the Therapist once a month is all I can afford.

  • http://www.dooce.com Amanda B.

    Austin is an amazing city. If I could afford it, I’d still live there. Never been to the Dallas- but that J.R. sure is a dick.

    I am very sad for the 25+ thousand people who were killed by the tsunami. That tsunami is a real dick too.

  • http://ladybug4791.tripod.com/ladybug/ LadyBug

    Amanda B, you crack me up. “That tsunami is a real dick…” That’d make a good newspaper headline.

    Can I marry Chuck? I swear, I’m deeply in love with him.

    Grammarqueen: I could be wrong, but I think there must be laws about that sort of thing in Utah…

    George don’t lie, you don’t have an accent.

    Hi all,

    Our lil’ ol’ public radio station ran a piece this morning and this organization is taking donations of cash and giving to the communities to use in the wake of the dick tsunami. No middle man or paternalistic organizations doling out assistance.

    NY Times had death toll at over 44, 000 this morning… we are really, really sad… I feel very useless and helpless.

    Bless you and yours. As always, you too dooce and your beautiful family. This is a fun little community here. Hi GEORGE! Bless you also. All of you be well, I am thankful for you.


  • George Lover

    To add to the dick tsunami discussion, the news also said that the death toll could double once disease like cholera, typhoid and malaria set in due to lack of safe drinking water. It is so very sad.

    George! Good luck in Texas! We fully expect you to post and keep us up to date.

  • http://patrick-nelson.com Kahli

    George Lover:

    excellent book on the topic of disease spreading due to lack of municipal sanitation and basic clean water resources:

    American Holocaust- Stannard

    just plain interesting:
    Guns Germs and Steel- Jared Diamond

    latest figures:

    52,000 dead.

    holey moley. F*cking dick tsunami.

  • Slim

    Let’s be fair to the tsunami the big dick of a 9.0 earthquake had everything to do with the death toll too.

    even though this site has to have the world’s largest collection of the words “cute”, “awww”, “adorable” and “GEORGE!”, you still make it worth visiting everyday Heather. of course, being a guy, i cannot readily admit to this, it’s like being caught secretly watching a soap opera.

  • http://www.dooce.com Amanda B.

    The tsunami is a dick, but the earthquake is the big ugly cock of death.

    Has anyone heard about the Red Cross or other such organizations’ needs here in the U.S. for these poor folks?

  • Paula

    I could just pinch and smooch and pluck on Lita’s cheeks! (we Italians tend to do that sometimes). She is so cute!

    Chuck has the patience of a saint.

    Another organization that helps and has very low overhead.


    Besides helping those in dire dire need, this is an opportunity for all americans to show that (and I mean this in the least political sense possible) we’re able to offer true international help even when oil does not glimmer in our eye.

  • http://www.dooce.com Amanda B.

    I found it- redcross.org

    The actual line is “the big black cock of death” via Bill Hicks. I didn’t want to offend. So I’ll let him do it:

    “I finally got my own show on TV coming out this fall as a replacement series. Don’t worry, it’s not a talk show. Thank God! It’s a half-hour weekly show that I will host, entitled ‘Let’s Hunt and Kill Billy Ray Cyrus’ I think it’s fairly self-explanatory: Each week we let the Hounds of Hell loose and chase that jar-head, no-talent, cracker idiot all over the globe ’til I finally catch that fruity little pony tail of his, pull him to his Chippendale knees, and put a shot gun in his mouth like a big black cock of death — Pow! Then we’ll be back in ’94 with ‘Let’s Hunt and Kill Michael Bolton.’ And we’re kicking the whole series off with our M.C. Hammer/Vanilla Ice/Marky Mark Christmas Special.”- Bill Hicks

    A Yorkie whore is a terrifying concept. I keep picturing that most horrifying scene in Last Exit to Brooklyn featuring Jennifer Jason Leigh and an abandoned street mattress.

    That poor Yorkie. Never stood a chance.

    I totally know that “heart stopping limp body, hotness washes over you” feeling. My father lost my dog once while visiting them. That feeling is one of the scariest things ever.

    Dogs, open gates…

    been there-i stupidly left the gate open, one time in the 3 years i have lived here.

    I was in the house, my phone rang and at that very instance I realized I had not shut the gate.

    the dogs, all 4-one who is deaf and 1 with three legs, were out.

    like you i was screaming my dogs names, flying around the yard, into the alley when my neighbor comes out on her deck and screams to me that they are all in her house.

    All of them, except the 3 legged dog (I-Lean)ran up the stairs to her deck. Her dogs were barking at my dogs, the deaf one was scratching at the door. I-Lean was under the deck happily sniffing around.

    I was lucky-I had visions of dead dogs all along the road.

    I was so lucky-

  • http://www.betterdayscrafts.com andrea

    I’m tortured with visions like that every time one of my cats escapes our back yard. We’ve fenced it in and made it as cat-proof as possible, but once in a while one of them will escape and I spend hours picturing them flattened in the street. Bah!

  • Gia on Guam

    It’s been some time since you’ve had a photo collection a la the Armstrong Kitchen Remodel Disaster. I think a Leta First Christmas Photo Collection is in order. From her first visit to santa, to her opening gift wrap to her sheer delight in finding Boobah. Thanks.

    Whenever I am at my in-laws house I am in constant fear that our two pups will escape. It never fails- someone will open the garage with out warning and there go the dogs. Do they tell anyone that the dogs are out…no! How would they like it if I let their 2 yr old out the front door to roam the town all alone? I don’t think so.

    I’m telling ya, RIGHT NOW…that comment up there? at 2:51 PM? The one that has “amber”‘s name on it and makes blatant sexual overtures to George? There’s no way the REAL Amber posted that.
    I just felt the need to jump to (the REAL) Amber’s defense, is all.

  • http://ladybug4791.tripod.com/ladybug/ LadyBug

    You guys know what I’m saying?? The real Amber is a whore and all, but NOT THAT MUCH OF A WHORE. I mean, who do they think they are kidding? GET A LIFE YOU PRETENDER!!

  • http://ladybug4791.tripod.com/ladybug/ LadyBug

    Hey, Dooce, I don’t want to scare you (_much,_ LOL), and I don’t want to detract from all the lost dog/cat stories…but that feeling you felt when you were running in your good boots, desperately searching for Chuck? Just wait ’til the first time Leta gets away from you (and out of sight) while you’re shopping. God, my heart starts pounding, just thinking about it.

  • http://ladybug4791.tripod.com/ladybug/ LadyBug

    This is SO not funny…and I refuse to play mind games with a troll…I make it a habit never to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.

    So this will be my last comment tonight. Anything with my name on it after this is NOT ME.

    To clarify, I commented at 7:34 and 7:53, and then at 7:56 when I realized I was being impersonated. Anything else with my name is NOT ME.

    And I’m almost certain NONE of these “amber” comments are really Amber.

    How sad, to have such a pathetic life, that your “fun” is spending time lurking in an internet forum, impersonating people you’ve never met.
