    I think I would have liked to hear the interview with Dooce all juiced up with her accent.

    Oh,and don’t worry about pronouncing Dooce wrong, I have been pronouncing Leta wrong the whole time.

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

    You ROCK, Heather. That was a great interview! But for some reason, the whole show’s audio was slowed down, like voice altering done for witness protection. So everrrrythnnnng wass slooooooooow and lowwwwww.

    “you live next to the verb”

    great line.

  • Cheryl

    Heather– you sounded awesome!! I expected more of a southern twang, but you sounded so professional and non-southern!!

    GREAT INTERVIEW!! It was so good to hear your voice!

  • Andrea in Canada

    You did great Heather! I love your accent…Canadians always love accents since ours are well….Canadian eh?

    I was hoping to hear Leta in the background but they managed to edit that well :(

    God, I feel like such a stalker, but I just have to say…I love your website, I love your NPR radio interview, and the first website I visit every day is yours.

    And PS: you sound nothing like what I thought…not that I knew what I thought you would sound like, but still…I am giving of the props!

  • the original kp

    i am a bit saddened that i didn’t get to hear dooce say kahn se kance, but what can you do?
    the picture at the end of the dog park with leta is sososo yummy. ::chomp::

  • amalita

    i’m listening to it right now! you don’t sound like how i imagined…

    Heather’s accent (at least when sober) is City Southern (much like my Mom) as opposed to Country Southern (much like all my cousins in Kentucky).

  • http://redhappens.com red

    you sound completely NOT red-neckish. you must’ve been sober. :)

  • http://bucky4eyes.blogspot.com Bucky Four-Eyes

    Oh, and folks, don’t forget to write to daytoday@npr.org and tell them how much you enjoyed your audio dooce!

    wait, did I just say that outloud?

    “Dude, I heard Janie got Dooced!”

    Good job Heather- it is great to hear your voice. You sound more girly than I expected. For some reason I expected you to sound more stern!

    Hi Heather-
    Long tim lurker- first time poster.
    Congrats on the NPR interview! It was nice to hear your voice in “real life.”
    Thanks for making me laugh everyday!

  • Angela

    Thanks for posting the link to your interview. It is nice to hear your voice in my head while reading your hilarious blog. You are famous! And I agree, you don’t sound like a redneck at all.

  • http://eyesaverted.blogspot.com/ Wicked H

    Yay, now we have a voice to go with the face.

    Good job Dooce!!

  • http://www.jigglebox.co.uk/beth Beth

    Whee! How weird to hear what you sound like. Good interview!

  • http://farisdesigns.blogspot.com anonyMouse

    luv to know if your hit counts went up substantially after the Day to Day interview.

  • Bruno

    You sounded bright and articulate. I have been interviewed on the radio before and you always think you sound ridiculous. No worries – your paranoia is uncalled for.
    Great job!

  • Marti

    I can’t listen to it. Why not?

  • spygeek

    You sounded great, Heather…good job!

  • Slim

    Great interview… also love the dog park pics you should enter that pic in the baby contest going on at Live with Regis and Kelly.

  • Annie

    ooooh! she looks so much like jon on that picture!

    great line.

    yep. that was my favorite part, too. :)

  • http://pardonedcombustication.blogspot.com Wayne

    Dooce, you sounded great. Heh! You sounded more amused than upset during the closing.

    You’re living next to the verb! Haha! That’s great. ;)

  • Katie

    Awesome interview! But now I really want to see the Delta airline flight attendant pics (not yours that is, a misconception you have cleared up for us…). Her skirt “rides up”? Hmm, sounds a tad suspicious.

    Completely unrelated, but I hear the new jib jab is out (www.jibjab.com) called “Second Term.” I’m looking forward to watching it.

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ Ruh Roh

    So how *do* you prounounce Leta????
    And it *is* “duece” sounding? Why does that dissapoint me?
    Cuz it *is* like all about me right?

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ Ruh Roh

    I saw her skirt…so blah

  • http://battybeyond.blogspot.com Tammy

    them’s some big hands, mom. When i was her age, I could fit my whole fist in my mouth. You should have her see a specialist about her only being able to get three fingers and a thumb in there. Choking on one’s own fist builds character.

  • Susie

    Well, this has been an especially lovely day here at dooce.com. First, Leta with handsnack. Then dogs-aplenty, PLUS major Leta cheekage — in the RED HAT, no less — PLUS AUDIO. And Emily with the puppy lovin’ was too dear.

    Thank you, Heather.

  • http://www.oipom.com Meggan

    Yay! I was hoping for a picture of Leta!

    Also, hearing that NPR guy say, “DUDE, I heard Janie got DOOCED last week” was totally the best part of my day. That was awesome.

  • http://www.mycircuslife.com Circus Kelli

    Heather! That is a great interview! Thanks for posting the link!

  • Katy

    Great interview Heather! I imagined you to have a thick southern accent, but I was wrong. There’s just a hint of southern-ism in your diction.

  • http://gretchenb.tripod.com/mrbaby/ Gretchen C.

    It was interesting to hear you! You have an accent I can’t quite place. I expected some Southern, but I didn’t hear any. I guess you are probably like me in that way — I’m originally from New Jersey but only sound like it when extremely drunk.

    You came across great. Considering you were under extreme maternal duress during the interview, you did a truly awesome job.

    “Heather’s accent (at least when sober) is City Southern (much like my Mom) as opposed to Country Southern (much like all my cousins in Kentucky).”

    Right on. I live in Kentucky, so I know exactly what you mean. However, most of the young adults raised in Lexington (early to mid-20s), the city I live in, sound more like Heather than Colonel Sanders. Just an oh-so-slight Southern accent, but people used to it can tell.

    Come to think of it, Heather and I sound eerily similar. Yoinks.

  • lena

    so cool. and i love your voice. i don’t hear an accent, but maybe i have the same one…

  • http://justplainevil.org/ally Ally

    Katie – the flight attendant’s website is here: http://queenofsky.journalspace.com/

    Definitley not as amusing as this blog, though.

  • Marti

    Life is so unfair.

  • Torrie

    Heather, I have been reading your website for about three years. It was very strange to finally hear your voice. Thanks for making me smile through so many tough days.

  • http://evil-stepmother.blogspot.com Evil Stepmother

    Holy crap, you sound like me. It was spooky.

    I know TN accents are vastly different from those from SW GA, but I guess when they morph into non-accents they become similar, especially in the vowels.

    Great interview. So who got the shout-out, Beth or Emily? Or someone else?

  • Marie

    Squish, I’m so glad you cleared up that line for me. I actually can’t hear very well and even after listening to it twice I thought she said, “you live next to the burb” and all I could think of was that bizarre Tom Hanks movie and I was totally lost.

  • http://hydrangeasarepretty.blogspot.com/ Shelli

    Colleen in NJ – that would be your computer thst’s slow, it sounded just fine here!

  • Katie

    Thanks for the link, Ally. Whew, “Queen of the Sky’s” blog gives me a headache. She’s a trainwreck. I’m not sure what to say about those photos so I’ll leave it at that.

    I’m using my indoor voice to say Leta looks absolutely adorable! Great interview. You sound so totally like I imagined.

  • sab

    Never imagined that your voice would sound like that.

  • Anurag

    She is adorable!! My daughter, Rhea, is about the same age and the scream that you talk (the one that only the devil can hear!), I and my wife can totally relate to it. Rhea begins her screams in the same way….a deeeeeep breath, opens mouth as wide as possible, have a “totally your fault” look, and then go absolutely still. After a few seconds of this comes out this scream that would put opera singers to shame. Thank god I like heavy metal music else I could not have survived that long.

    Anyway, just wanted to drop in line to say I read you blog religiously and best of luck to you and your husband.

  • Henryk

    Ahhhh……sweet innocence. Alas, when she gets older, the hand will be replaced by a foot.

  • RazDreams

    A cute picture of Leta, FOUR posts today, a REALLY LONG Daily post yesterday, and a bonus Dog Park collection of photos…

    *I say we take up large donations to pay the babysitter to show up more often!!!*
