Sunset over The Great Salt Lake

  • Colleen from NJ

    I have a beautiful boy named Colin hanging on my shoulder as we speak. The section was really not that bad and the boy is healthy and so far, really easy compared to the other 2… or maybe I’m finally learning. Ooh, I can give you a link to show a pic.. lame log I just started, but great to show pics. Never did this before. see if link from my name works…

  • Amanda B.

    Dooce and homies, if you haven’t seen this, you must. It’s fun and a useful tool to annoy friends, family and coworkers.

  • Colleen from NJ

    oh, and boy, what weird events happened here when I was away… holy hateful woman. I do believe she committed a federal felony, by the way. Maybe.

    Amanda B – you owe me $400.

  • Carol

    Colleen – the link worked, but can’t post anonymously, so sorry Dooce et al, but…

    He’s gorgeous!! Sweet little baby! Congratulations!! We’ll have to talk further on email or your site. I may be headed your way (3 boys) but can’t decide. And c-sections (I’ve had two). Yes, thank God for those.

    Good luck to you!! You already know all about it. : )

    p.s. Hubby is cute, too!

  • Carol

    Too curious and nosey not to ask… why $400?

    Oh, and just as I put my little one to bed…there’s not really a word for it, but he dropped a toy on his toenail about 6 months ago and tonight he was pulling the toenail off!!! EEEeeeeeewwwwww! Sorry for the long post. But, YUCK!! Ugh.

  • Kristine

    half the shirts on remind me of something dooce should wear. she could totally pull them off.

  • Dara

    knob is a cool word. but in Europe it means “cool” so i’m told…

  • Amanda B.

    Dude! You got an ax?

  • Carol

    Ha!! amandab! heygirliegirl. i need an axe.

    Mari – I love that t-shirt! Too bad I couldn’t really wear it.

  • yeah, I got an axe… to GRIND!


  • closet metrosexual

    the grinder wasn’t me.

    I bought me a geee-tahr, as they say in Southern Speak.

  • Carol

    CM – did you really buy the guitar? a new one for you? after christmas? GOOD!

  • Gia on Guam

    Amanda B, The singing horsies are hilarious!!!

    All those posts by “dooce” seem off. She usually only answers nagging questions and limits to one post…I have a sneaky suspicion that she has an imposter.

  • Carol

    Gia – I think you’re right. I thought I was so smart finding out it was “her” but now I don’t really think it’s her. And by the way, last week … yes, it was you I was mentioning : )

    Hope you had a great holiday. I’ve been thinking of you… were you affected by the Tsunami?

  • Gia on Guam

    You’re so sweet Carol!

    No the tsunami did not affect Guam. There was not a direct path from the earthquake to Guam…Indonesia blocked it. But we are no strangers to strong earthquakes…the largest in recent history was in 1993. An 8.2 … no deaths.

    Sorry to prattle on Dooceland. Cheers to all. Happy New Year!

  • closet metrosexual

    Gia, I’m sweet too. I thought about you, and figured out that I have no idea where Guam is. Glad to hear you’re ok, anyways.

  • Suzanne

    How gorgeous. Damnit, you’re making me want to visit Utah – which is something I NEVER thought I’d want to do!

  • Gia on Guam

    Haha … Hi Closet Metrosexual :)

    Guam is a US Territory in the Pacific Ocean about 7 hours flight west of Hawaii. just 13 degrees above the equator … yes I’m wearing a tank top today.

  • Brad

    First? Sweet.

  • Carol

    OK, I have been madly searching and asking Hubby about Guam. It’s not so close to Sri Lanka, but not so far, either. Same area of the Globe, basically, uh..right?

    Today on the radio, I heard that an earthquake once started in Chile and sent a wave 6,000 miles to Hawaii that still had the power to kill 100s of people. So I stand by my question. Stupid or not.

    Just glad you are safe, Gia!!

  • Angela

    Oh, very pretty. You take such lovely photos.

  • closet metrosexual

    Gia, tomorrow I’ll be shoveling snow, so you know where you can put your dirty tank top. (right in the laundry hamper with the rest of the dirty clothes. You didn’t think I was going to say something nasty did you?)

  • libbiegrrl


  • Gia on Guam

    Guam is a lot more east of Sri Lanka. I guess I should have said “in the middle of the pacific ocean”. We are close to the Mariana’s Trench. That, plus the massive reef system we have additionally protect us from tsunamis. They do nothing to protect us from Typhoons tho. But I’m also happy to report…no deaths from those either. Some with winds 200MPH+!


    I was hoping you’d make reference to dirty panties and hoping my dirty tank top got chewed up as well :p.

    I hope this gives you a better idea than the last one ^^

    Hello, Carol, Metro, all –
    Finally back from backwoods relative hell.

    Congrats, Colleen & Family!

  • gina

    that is breathtaking. almost makes me want to move to utah but not really :)

  • closet metrosexual

    Gia, please don’t say “dirty panties.” I’m too close to the gutter (but some of us are looking at the stars, to steal from Oscar Wilde).

  • Eleni

    top 10!!! beautiful picture!

  • Danielle

    Congratulations, Colleen from NJ!!

    I was thinking about you around Christmas and wondering if you had a Christmas baby after all.

    Cute pics. :)

  • twaci

    you would think by this picture that the great salt lake would be a beautiful mountain lake… but i have to say, i find it to be sort of fugly. leave it to dooce to make it look gorgeous with her handy-dandy d70.

  • Sherly

    p.s. my cat has always LOVED to roll in any clothes (work out tops, socks) that smell like my sweat and will throw her 4 lb body against the hamper to knock it over and then dig to the bottom of the hamper to get at them. Or even chew through the vented gym bag. Sometimes if I go to bed with any trace of b.o. she will haul off and bite my armpit in the night. YOWWWWWWW!

    But she cares not a whit for my underwear.

  • joy

    i’ve read your site for ages and never seen less than thirty-gazillion comments on one of your photographs. Only five is somehting bordering on the miraculous!

  • Carol

    Sherly!!! Welcome Back from Hell! We’ve been talking about panty chewing and the global positioning of Guam as of late.

  • ashik

    What? I thought your camera was capable of only taking pictures of Leta (wearing pink), Chuck (molested in some way) or GEORGE! (exuding all that is good)

  • Danielle

    I was thinking that dooce would delete any comments from a dooce imposter… but it sure is hard to tell these days what is “real” and what isn’t.

  • joy

    ok, so nevermind. nice pic, btw. makes me want to go snowboard in utah.

  • Carol

    Posted too late, as per usual.

  • Jadde

    Thats a beautiful picture! It reminds me of the years I lived there in The Great Salt Lake and that maybe, not quite, but maybe, it would be nice to move back there again…
    I’ve never posted before, and I’m new to reading your blog, but here I am this morning.

  • closet metrosexual

    Welcome Back Sheryl. Pooka to you.

  • Lis

    That is beautiful!!

  • MrsDoF

    There have been some lovely sunsets on the prairie the last couple weeks. Wonder what happened up in the atmosphere, I don’t remember any volcano ash spewing. I remember some gorgeous sunsets after Mt. St. Helens blew its top.

    Hey, #153 Holy Schmidt–do you figure that maybe last week the fellow you spied might have been one of GEORGE!’s brothers? in Dallas!

  • tone

    Beautiful! Utah sure is photogenic.

  • Sherly

    [Ouch, Metro :O]

    Carol, “too late”?

    Hi Danielle.

  • peggy

    Only 10 comments so far (until I get this typed – then there’ll be 25. Sig’h) so here’s my redundant comment:


  • Carol

    Sherly – Too late = telling you about panty chewing when you have obviously read those comments….

  • amit

    soooo perrrrty

  • Sherly

    ahhh so, is this one of the last nights with your good friends Shiraz and Merlot??

    [On a side note - I have to find a new name to post by, may need your help in choosing one.]
