    What? Brad & Jen split up? It’s official?

    V, pretty picture btw. And I dug the sleep story.

    SLC is flat? What about the foothills and the eastside? 13th and 17th South? Even my high school was perched on a giant faultline. I live in Chicago, which is definitely flat. I laugh when people in the midwest talk about the skiing here.

    Moved to the east coast 4 years ago use to live on 12th south and 9th east SLC.I sure miss those beautiful views but not the mormon views.

    Holy shit that photo is hot!

    Neat picture…

    and I agree…NOTHING is more monumentous than Brad and Jen…not even homeland security.

    whoa. photoshopped?

  • http://nabbalicious.blogspot.com Heather

    Did you use a filter? Regardless, stunning photo!

    OMG. Beautiful, White Balance adjusted and all.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH ! WHERE IS BLACK BEARD THE ASS PIRATE! THAT IS THE KIDN OF PHOTO I WANT TO SEE!

    HEATHER THIS IS GOD. THE NEWS OF BRADLEY AND JENNIFER IS MORE IMPORTANT. NOBODY ELSE GIVES A RIP WHO THE HEAD OF THE “HOMELAND [TERROR] DEPARTMENT” IS, EITHER.

    THAT IS ALL.

    Okay, I’m here. Has the party started?

    Blackbeard the Ass Pirate? Whooo.

    I was very sad to hear about Brad and Jennifer.. I thought for sure they’d be one of the few Hollywood couples that made it. So much for that theory! :\

    Break out the Champale, great unwashed masses: The Mormon General Authority has deigned to grace us with a blog!

    I’m more surprised when the celebrities DON’T break up (e.g. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee (?), Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman).

    Brad and Jen were doomed to failure; no one can be that pretty and survive real life.

    Hmm. I would’ve thought God’s blog address would be i am who *I* am. But it’s i am whoam.
    Wonder who *Whoam* is?

  • Kristen from MA

    Cindy,
    you must have been reading my mind – it IS the photographer, not the camera! (although the D70 is great and I’d love to have one myself…)

    p.s. Heather, if you haven’t been published, you should consider putting a portfolio together – you have a great eye!

    oh my god, wow

  • Jana

    Wow! That is fantastic!

    The literal translation of the word Yaweh (I believe) is I Am Who Am. Therefore, the usage on the Mormon blog.

    Wow, is there a filter on there?

    If not, I need to come see for myself.

    “Earlier today someone sent me a link to a livejournal site talking about people who have lost their jobs because of their websites and someone said this about me, “She’s pretty cute, but her sex-appeal is ruined by her mental issues and her frank discussion of her perma-constipation.”

    And here I was thinking that my perma-constipation was my best asset. Does this mean I should stop talking about it over dinner with my in-laws?”

    gf, stop being so self referencial. people can easily recognize that in anyone..shows your vulnerability issues.

    Bucky4E, I agree. Champagne all around!

    Kristen from MA:
    I wouldn’t turn down a D70 if it was offered – I would definitely want one. I love taking photos – a day without taking photos is a missed opportunity. However, I’m no Dooce. :-)

    Heather: Nikon could so totally use you for advertising their product. Or, you could nudge them my way if they had free product to promote.

    About Brad and Jen: I am so sorry for them. I wished for them health and happiness when they married – and I still wish them health and happiness. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be….

    smoking. beautiful. What time of day was that?

  • http://www.talktomegoose.com april

    that’s puuurrrrty.

  • Lisa

    I must look up in your archives how you got from TN to Utah. I know the former Mormon connection but the rest of the story has to be good, too. Better than LA smog, too, no doubt. It’s beautiful there, and your photos captured that beauty so well!

    I’m thinking there are SIGNS of impending global doom out there that only the wise and uninterrupted will detect: tsunami, Brad and Jenn split, Homeland Security office shored up. We are asking for it cosmically.

    Awesome. I knew God liked Monty Python.

    never fear, brad has moved into MY PANTS!!!!

  • andy

    wow, looks like if it weren’t for all the Mormons, Utah would be a great place to live!

    Disclaimer: Not that Mormons are any worse or better than any other religious group.

    Yep…looks like a storm a comin…

  • the niffer

    Love the photo. Poo-talk IS sexy. And thank you, Dooce (and the minions) for making me laugh today and every day.

  • the niffer

    God, why don’t you let us post on your blog?

  • http://iamwhoam.blogspot.com Mormon General Authority

    NIFFER THIS IS GOD. I’M NOT INTERESTED IN YOUR PUNY MORTAL OPINIONS. IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER OMNISCIENT ALL POWERFUL BEINGS OUT THERE WHO WANT TO COMMENT, LET ME KNOW.

    YEAH. I DIDN’T THINK SO.

    THAT IS ALL.

  • U.B.

    Yes, poor Brad & Jen. They’ll just have to struggle through life with only their freakishly good-looking selves and tens of millions of hollywood dollars to comfort them…

    Hey, Dad? How come you never play catch with me anymore?

  • weez

    Dooce, I saw the Brad & Jen story on Today this morning on the East coast. Was no more information than previously reported. Found it fascinating that Today will be doing special reports and bringing in experts to discuss how the “baby” topic can affect marriages. Does it really cause break ups and why? They’ll probably rename it the Brad & Jennifer Syndrome in marriage counseling. BTW: Both Charles & Diana and Brad & Jennifer got married on my birthday – July 29th. Note to future brides..do not pick this day for your wedding as we now know how these marriages turned out!

  • http://www.thejulietfiles.com JulieT

    My mother divorced a man she married on July 29th. There may be something to that.

    I NEED your camera. I checked and it’s expensive as hell though. I’m tempted to buy it anyway.

  • http://jennifaari.tripod.com/weblog.html Jenny

    Gorgeous picture. No snow, though?

  • http://www.goblinbox.com Mush

    That kind of sleeping is called “COMBAT SLEEPING.” I think it’s an Olympic sport, and you’re not ‘torturing your husband,’ you’re IN TRAINING! Leta too!

  • http://www.saramouth.blogspot.com Sara

    Hey Heather…I heard the reason your body jerks when you are sleeping is because your brain thinks your body is dying and it jerks it to kick start it. Weird huh?

    I didn’t realize sex-appeal was the point of Dooce’s site. This person is a knob. Her “mental issues” and perpetual state of constipation are exactly why I think she’s great. And she’s mad sexy no matter how much she grunts on the shitter.

    Hey, “Sara” was supposed to be Cora’s Mommy. Some evil person changed it to my real name! LOL

    Terrific picture of Utah but you can’t open a colon cleansing home business there. It’s a beautiful place but it does have it drawbacks.

    Yahweh just chill out man. You’re so uptight and full of wrath. Why don’t you come hang out with me at the M.O.? I’ll show you how a god should live. Ambrosia and honeys my friend, it’s an eternal party.

    It’s Manah baby, Manah.

  • http://iamwhoam.blogspot.com Mormon General Authority

    ZEUS THIS IS THE ONE TRUE GOD. IF I DIDN’T SUCCUMB TO TEMPTATION AFTER 40 DAYS IN THE DESERT, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I’D FALL FOR “HONEYS?” HMMMMMMM?

    YOU ARE YOUR CABAL OF REEFER SMOKING HIPPY gods BETTER STEP OFF, BITCH.

    THAT IS ALL.

    Geez, U.B., that doesn’t keep them from HURTING right now, does it?

    God should smite you.

  • http://iamwhoam.blogspot.com GOD’S Editor.

    Um yeah, GOD would like to amend that last decree from “you are…” to “you *and* … .”

    That low-level angelic copy writer is SO going to spend the next four thousand years in purgatory for making GOD look stupid.

    er, that is all.
