Scrumptious Bearded Armstrong as reflected in the switchplate of our bedroom in LA one week before we left for Utah

I promise this is the last of the reminiscing photos for a while.

  • Lisa

    Second?! Long time lurker, first time poster … love this site – Gotta get my daily dose of Dooce!

  • Laurie

    Yummy!! :-D

  • Fran

    HAWT!

  • kinda weirded out

    this is the closest i have ever been to first… but of course i don’t get up at the crack of dawn to check for a new picture…

  • twaci

    with a beard like that, he HAD to get out of LA! that’s more of a utah mountain man beard.

    You know, when I was younger, I didn’t think beards on men were at all attractive, then my boyfriend (now husband) started being beardy, and the whole fuzz-face thing became rather endearing to me. Your Jon looks quite nice with his beard–rather teddybearish.

    I imagine that’s the way Jeffrey Dahmer looked before he killed those people and cut them up like a paper snowflake.

    Oooooh. Freakishly Sci-fi. Kinda like Drunkenstein

    1) i really like the photos from the past. :)

    2) very cool wall/lightswitch.

    3) “crotchety old-hag’s bitch”…brilliant comeback. ;)

    He’s got an on and off switch too??

    Very cool!!!!!

    Can we all agree our reflections in shiny metal objects are frequently less than flattering?

    But, beauty IS in the eye of the beholder.

    Jesus Johhny, does it always have to be about Dahmer?
    Very very very interesting neato shot.

  • http://redhappens.com red

    his hair is great. :)

    I guess I’d have that look on my face, too, if I had two big bullet holes and a lightswitch stuck in my head.

    Oh, wait. . .never mind, perception totally fucked!

    Dr. J — You’re comparing Scrumptious Bearded Armstrong to Jeffrey Dahmer??

  • RazDreams

    Look how super freaky his other eye looks. *Yikes!!!*

  • http://wouldacouldashoulda.blogspot.com/ Mir

    Is that a lightswitch in your forehead or are you just happy to… oh, nevermind. ;)

    “claire said at 07:55AM, 01.18.2005:
    your husband has a lightswitch in his head!”

    That’s how she turns him on!

    Oooooh, like a Christmas bulby face! Oh, wha?

    Speaking of nomenclature, I HATE (hate, hate, HATE!) when my father-in-law calls his wife “mother.” I don’t know why; the incestuous allusion, perhaps? It gives me the willies. Just… ew.

    (I just used “nomenclature” in a sentence. Huh.)

  • MyChelle

    I specialize in Nose Hair pictures of my honey – this one might qualify. We LIKE the reminiscing pictures. As long as there are sufficient Leta and Chuck pics to keep us from the DTs

  • http://sadandbeautiful.typepad.com Sarah

    Very cool photo…scrumptious is definitely the word for him!

    Oh, and by the way…some of us don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn…on the east coast it is after 10am already! Expand your universe, folks. The world exists beyond your front door. ;-)

  • http://misspriss.org becky

    the reminiscing photos are cool. he looks unhappy at leaving, though.

  • that

    he has a halo.

    *I sincerely apologize for the shouting..just wanted to catch someone’s attention*

    GPL,
    I’m a transplant from Pennsylvania to Melbourne. (Me “Ozband’s” from here.)
    Feel free to email me if you’d like.

    I personally miss Cherry Pepsi, Black Cherry Ice Cream and Conan – since we don’t have cable.
    But a lot of things are heaps better over here, too.
    Take care, Amy

    Dooce..just how many drugs are you guys on? And what kind? And can I have some?
    Nah,, seriously…very creative! Fun! Fun! Fun!

  • Dazed & Confuzed

    “Our” bedroom? You weren’t married at the time, were you? You were living in SIN? I don’t believe my heart can take it.

  • http://www.veryzen.blogspot.com Amanda B.

    I’m enjoying all of this nostalgia.

    Is that the face Jon makes while he sends out stern emails? I will have none of this thankyou. This may also be the face he makes when Leta wants to go on her first date.

  • http://themissus.blogspot.com BJT

    Earlier than usual! (me, I mean.)
    Hee, distortion.

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

    I love the color on the wall, very purty. We want more nostalgia fun!

  • http://prettycrabby.com Em

    Distorted Bearded Man!

  • Southern Fried Girl

    He is quite scrumptious – gotta give you that. You have excellent taste, Heather.

    “Hey Honey, do you see something in my eye?”

  • http://completerunning.com/chocolate-runners-blog/ Jon in Michigan

    He kinda looks like Chris from Rude Cactus.

  • http://plazajen.blogspot.com/ Jennifer in Kansas City

    I’m already getting excited for Leta’s first birthday pix. Hope she gets cake EVERYWHERE (ok, just on her face) – and we know who would be more than happy to clean up! That’s the former senator, Chuck!

  • GSV Micturition to Windward

    The look says:
    “I can’t even say goodbye to the light switch without you getting in my face with your frigging camera ! ”

    Looking forward to a pic of him saying goodbye to the toilet.

  • Andrea in Canada

    Melanie S…thanks for the morning chuckle! Cute joke!

    I love this pic Dooce…very creative and yes…Jon looks great with a beard!

  • http://9moonsago.com Amy

    Me again.
    Hell yeah! That is a dayamn beautiful red wall!!
    ..and, Mrs. George 2..I like your site..checked it out the other day.

    I’ll leave room for everyone else to comment now. Heather must spend 45% of her day reading emails and comments. Must suck, sometimes, to be so popular…

  • http://hello.its.me Splinter

    I like these old photos. Don’t stop them.

  • http://kailynsmom.blogspot.com Lesa

    You must have the coolest photo albums ever. You both take excellent pictures!

  • http://ebirkhol.diaryland.com e

    this doesn’t have to be the last reminiscing photo – I think they’re GREAT and I love that you share them!

  • Cheryl

    I don’t know exactly what Jon is doing but whenever you get tired of him– send him my way!!

  • http://dirtyfloorsandfilthyjokes.blogspot.com/ closet metro

    Unless he’s wired for a three-way, it looks like Jon is turned off at the moment.

  • http://www.zorblog.com Zorbs

    It would be great to see a picture of the entire bedroom, the red wall just screams “boudoir” – said with the most exaggerated French accent.

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

    Very cool pic. And I’ve enjoyed the reminiscing. Thanks for sharing, Dooce.

    And on the topic of grandparents’ names…a woman at our church did not want to be called “Grandma,” so she decided to pick her own, very _unique_ name…*Precious*.
    Yes. That’s right. The woman insisted her grandkids call her PRECIOUS. Ack!

    The funniest part is…the grandkids couldn’t pronounce Precious, so they call her Pe-pe. HA!

    Pre-work posting!!

    I like the comment about men having an on/off switch!!

  • Annalise

    Only in L.A does one ‘reflect’ on his time there in a kitsch/flashy switchplate…ahhh *sigh*

  • http://clobberblogger.blogspot.com Colleen from NJ

    Heather, over here, it’s Jon… I don’t think we can move to Utah. The apartment has consumed me.

  • http://lovemydox.diaryland.com Ginger

    Turned on AND screwed. Or is that off?

    that’s a nice picture for
