    Fish – bleieve it or not, for me it IS an inner DIALOGUE. Especially since it’s been 3 days without a cigarette or any caffeine. I’m actually sweating right now.

    “Oh, just one. No. Please? NO!!”

    MASTHEAD? What masthead? You mean others have been seeing a masthead
    all the time I’ve been crying for one?

    Waaah! Wanna masthead! How do I go about getting one?

    I don’t usually comment on the “I’m First!” commenters, but today’s just killed me. What got me was Laura’s “acceptance speech”:

    Laura said at 08:28AM, 01.04.2005:
    OMG I WAS FIRST. I DIDNT EVEN TRY TO BE FIRST. BUT I WAS FIRST. I can die a happy woman now. Oh yeah I have to say hi to my sister Ashley too. She and I read your site everyday and then coo at how cute Leta is. ASHLEY IM FIRST! WHOA!
    …and I’d like to thank all the fans, and of course the Mormon God, and my family…you’ve all been so supportive of my efforts to be first……

    Laura, no offense intended, dear. I just thought it was TOO funny.

    Just got a message that my “comment submission failed.”

    Could’ve fooled me! I’ve already seen it, as post #91.

    Am I hallucinatin’ or somethin’?

    Looks like you could have been showing the room of New Years partiers how to do really loud arm pit farts.

    Leta wasn’t watching was she?

  • tickled

    Jess from B-lo, hunny, please
    clarify. I hit refresh all the time, but it don’ ever get me no masthead!

    Also–did someone say something about pine green?
    All I’ve ever gotten is a sh– brown left-hand border from which the letters look as if they’ve barely managed to escape.

    And the comment numbers! Oh migawd, the comment numbers!
    THEY’re in burnt orange, barely distinguishable from the sh– brown. What’m I doing wrong?

    what i think is funny is everyone spends an entire morning arguing over who was or was not first. the fact that this poor child thinks being today’s first commenter is an accomplishment worthy of thanking her personal diety for is touching yet sad.
    the fact that 20 people tried to convince her she was NOT first and then laughed their asses off when ran from the room sobbing, is pretty damn sadistic. laura, you can come down from the top of that building now because you were first.

    Nice new look! Just wanted to mention that in Canada, until Jan 11, if you donate to Red Cross/World Vision etc for tsunami relief the Canadian government matches your donation so your cash goes twice as far. I know some U.S. donors have gone to the redcross.ca site to donate so they can get the double up.

    I should clarify…in my comment about Laura’s “acceptance speech,” I added the stuff about thanking the fans, etc. I should’ve done a better job of separating that part from the quoting of Laura’s comment. Sorry ’bout that.

    Aw Dooce. You’re a sweetheart. We are so blessed in this country- it’s the least we can do to share the wealth when people are in need.

    tickled: clear your CACHE, child!!! “Clear it, Clear it, Clear it like a Etch-A-Sketch screen!!!”

    anyone willing to help: do you guys see Comment Numbers (i.e., do you see which comment # I am right here for this post)? where do you see it, and how do i get my machine to show me comment numbers?

  • http://spelunk.blogspot.com mrs. george #2

    you’re #111. you need a mac, my PC at work doesn’t show it either.

    Amanda B: Jesus told me to tell you that he really needs his suits back from the drycleaners.

  • tickled

    Raz Dreams — I just DID clear my cache, my throat, my desk, etc.

    Didn’t do any good.


  • http://symbioticfishes.blogspot.com Fish

    Tickled: it may be something with your security software, or you just need to dump your cache completely and start from scratch as Razdreams said.

    Razdreams/MG2: download and use Mozilla’s Firefox on the PC. Open source is good, and you’ll see the comment numbers.

    oooh no!!! FLASH BACK GALORE!! Can you believe that my parents and school friends allowed me to enter the fifth grade talent show dancing to “You can’t touch this”??? A white girl ballerina and her hip hop routine…..*gasp* Horrible. Just horrible. Thank dooce. *rasberry*

    I think it’s Internet Explorer that doesn’t show the comment numbers. Mozilla and Macs seem to display comment numbers as does my blackberry.

  • donnaly

    comment numbers show up on my PC using IE (as well as on foxfire on the home PC)

    You are a truly wonderful person.

    Thank you for all you do in sharing the humor and beauty in your life. Your compassion, complexity, humor, and bravo is truly a gift.

    I am so glad I have learned to set the coffee cup down before reading a comment from Dr. Johnny Fever. Experience saved me a Juan Valdez Sinus Flush. Couldn’t pick it back up until the conversation geeked out to “use firefox.”

    Y’all make me giggle.

    Just read your letter to Leta. It brought me to tears. Isn’t love a wonderful thing?
    Love the dance…you don’t show enough pictures of your fine self!

    I actually skanked on New Year’s Eve, because my husband did his attempt at skanking, and my, he can’t skank to save his life, so I skanked all over his ass.

    (my friend and I actually moshed at my wedding too, but alas, we went at it really hard on the first go, and so one full-on body slam was as long as it lasted, alas.)

    There’s a skank that lives on my street. She kinda smells like ass.

    My mom told me never to skank because I would grow up to look like Zingbah.

    NEWSFLASH to Fish and RazDreams: Thanx for advice, but ‘twaren’t practical; I’m on a Mac, not a PC, and I don’t have Mozilla. BUT: Big Dad stumbled out of bed at that moment, ambled over to the iMac, and within moments I got the masthead, the color, the works!

    When I asked him what magic he worked, he said he didn’t do
    nothin’–that dooce herself must be diddling with the programming.

    Right now I’m getting everything
    hunky-dory on Explorer except no pic of bouncing dooce. Getting different layout on Netscape–all text centrally located but no comment numbers.

    Dooce, dearie, was Big Daddy right? Are you tinkering with the innards?
