    Her hair is getting loooong! Totally adorable, as always. :)

    Dr. J. F.,
    No… but ‘the molesting of the air’ did get mentioned. Which is close, if you’ll recall.

    Seventh! d’oh!
    Cute pic!

  • Karen

    I have to say, that was very cool (but WEIRD! I totally pictured you sounding different – I could never picture you in the hick accent you’ve described, but actually come to think of it I had absolutely no clue what I thought you sounded like. You didn’t end up sounding like a hick, rest assured) hearing your voice after reading Dooce for about a year now!

    And by the way, Leta is going to grow up as one of those girls who I loathe – never mind the fact that she’s 15 years younger than me – because of her red hair and gorgeous colouring and the TALLNESS, OH THE TALLNESS! (says she who stands, rather bitterly, 5’4″.)

    Dooce– she’s inherited your hair!

    I heard the accent a little bit, probably because I’m from Minnesota and there’s a difference in speech pattern. It sounded fine, though. Great interview.

    Yay! More Leta! We needed a fresh fix, you know. Is she wearing a sweater vest?

    From yesterday’s picture comments:

    HootyHoo — um, what? Sorry. I’m still desperately in need of caffiene and I can’t wrap my wretched little brain around what you mean…

  • Kathy

    Enjoyed listening to your NPR interview. As far as “THE ACCENT” — I detected remnants of south, mixed with (and you’re not going to like this) “Midwest Wholesome” — the all American Girl so to speak.

    She’s got hand! She’s got hand!!
    Too cute :) What a lovely little beastie you’ve got there!

  • Lesley

    Leta’s eyes are like liquid jewels. The intelligence that emanates from them is impressive.

  • Jackie

    Yeah!! Leta!!

    Her hair is so long. Don’t you just love to smash your face into it and inhale deeply?

    My son was licking him self once.
    I asked him if he tasted good and he said yes.
    So I asked him what he tasted like and he said chicken.

    first, i snorted @ “the husband” comment.

    second, heather you sounded great. terrific job.

  • http://www.dooce.com/archives/daily_photo/01_19_2005.html Melissa

    She looks so big! She’s adorable, Heather. But you know that, don’t you?

  • andrea

    I know there’s some pscychology term for this, but for some reason I thought you’d sound like me. Your voice is much lower and subdued than I thought it would be. Awesome NPR blurb though, are you getting any more hits on your site now?

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

    Chloe — it looks like a denim or cordurory vest — I love it!

  • andrea

    Also, i can’t believe I just mispelled psychology. Southern hick that I am.

    Nice to see I’m not the only one who styles her hair with an eggbeater! :)

  • http://fandangogirl.diaryland.com Christine

    I too have joined the throngs of blog royalty! I was dooced back in May. They put spyware in my computer that tracked my usage and it led them to my livejournal, a private entry, I might add, about gutting one of my co-workers like a fish. What. I was venting.

  • http://www.danielleblog.com Danielle

    So, I missed putting this on yesterday’s pic comments (I was too slow)

    I think that the posts yesterday were pretty clear about listening to the Day to Day show on NPR… but here’s the info I found:
    *Day to Day*

    Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2005
    - A listing of today’s stories will be posted at approx. 12:00 p.m ET
    - Audio for today’s show will be available at approx. 3:00 p.m. ET
    And as far as transcripts go, it looks like they charge $4.95 for a transcipt and it is available 10pm ET the same day.

    Got it? gooooood.


  • Erika

    Dooce, you sound strong and sexy on the NPR interview. ;)

  • http://www.nytechguys.com/~captain/blog/index.html Brian

    MUST…. EAT….. HAND!!!

    adorable as ever.

  • http://sbfh.blogspot.com Psycho Kitty

    Christine: Snort!
    Heather B.: I thought you said you had an accent?

  • http://www.sissychong.blogspot.com Sissychong

    Oh you poor girl, what a day. But, Leta? She is a doll!

  • susie

    Heather –
    Although my blog is extremely anonymous – no comments, no e-mail – I did take to heart your experience and your warning. Initially I had written two posts that left no doubt about where I worked and after I started reading your site I went back in and deleted them. They check my trunk when I arrive in the morning and I have to carry scannable ID with me when I wander around the lot. I can imagine that they would have no trouble finding out exactly what computer I’ve posted from at work. As the saying goes, “If you can’t be a good example, then you’ll just have to be a horrible warning.” So thanks for that. While I’m sorry that you got fired for venting your spleen, it seems that you are in a happier place AND you’re a VERB – now that’s pretty cool.

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ No transcript needed

    I will be taking notes.

    Not really.

  • http://chloeishere.diaryland.com/ Chloe (is here)

    Okay, just adding to the throng who are saying, “You didn’t sound like I thought ya would!”. Basically, everything I’ve had to add to that has already been said. You have a good voice.

    Loving Jon’s shoes in the picture where that adorable puppy is sitting on him! They should make those shoes in my size.

    Doggies are cute. But, well, Leta… all I can say is CHEEKS!

    And yeah, when I got home from my extremely long day and I checked dooce, I definitely can see that that top is not a sweater vest. Is it odd that I think a sweater vest on a baby would be adorable?

  • beachgal

    Awww…she’s so sweet. Love it!

  • http://www.clevertitle.net -leslie.-

    1) I would sell my soul to the devil in order to be on NPR, and I’m so jealous and proud of you that you got to be on it for *free*

    2) Your voice is a lot deeper than I imagined… maybe it’s because you’re blonde. In any case, it’s sexy and I love it.


  • RazDreams

    Leta, yummy

    danielle: even better, listen to dooce LIVE!


  • Ali

    Your voice is nothing like I thought. I had imagined something a bit higher pitched, with a more pronounced southern accent. I’m glad I was proven wrong.

    And Leta needs to stop being so cute, it’s making me want kids.

  • http://thefathousewife.blogspot.com/ Dooce LIVE

    On ice. In France!!!

    Hey, my daughter had pajama’s in that exact fabric and style.


    Oh wait, I did too :P

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

    Hands, always a yummy treat!!

    Maybe still has a hint of the Costco card, yummmmm.

  • http://jpandthemegabeast.blogspot.com/ JP

    GOOD GRIEF those are cute pictures!!

    Makes me want a puppy. Damn it.

  • http://www.danielleblog.com Danielle

    yeah… well, I would if I could, ya know. Which is ironic because the person I work with has NPR on _all the time_. I could almost hum the theme songs/music for some of their programs.
    But today, I think we’ll be in the middle of a project right then and I won’t be able to get away.

  • http://song.september-rain.org/blogger.html song

    I love the fly-away hair, but that shirt has PINK FLOWERS!!!! what are you doing to your child? That’s like more than once a year in pink!!

    Oh and loved the dogpark photos – Mr Congressman, EMILY DOES NOT LOVE YOU BEST. (Mind you, that rottweiler looks mighty unimpressed at Emily’s canoozeling)

  • MLE

    when will dooce be on?

  • http://deann.blogspot.com DeAnn

    She’s SO cute!!

    And I am so glad to hear your voice. Now I can imagine you saying all of the things you are writing.

  • Grrrrr

    Well Done Sarah- you earned that first placmement fair and square (darn my internet speed and the refresh button getting jammed at precisely the wrong moment!grrr)

    ahhh but all that frustration and misplaced anger suddenly evaporates when I see how delicious Leta is looking these days. When do I get to be an aupair again?

    Question for Dooce: are you an early childhood ear piercer?

  • http://sque.blogspot.com/ Sque

    I think the interview sounded very professional. You were worried for nothing and you sound a bit like…MaDonna!

    Cute puppy pics and Leta is pretty in pink as usual! Looks like she’s almost due for her first trim! I remember back when she was a little baldy! lol

  • http://sarahkite.blogspot.com SEK

    mmmm…tasty fingers

  • http://www.soundque.com coskel

    (Heather, if you don’t want me to do this, tell me !!!
    I was able to get a very nice copy of the interview, and would provide a copy for anyone who can cover the cost of the CD + shipping, which would be about $2 in the USA.

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

    She’s giving herself the old saliva manicure. Good for the cuticles.

  • http://www.soundque.com coskel

    Also, to anyone who wants to know: Heather sounds “sexy” in the interview because the board at the radio station “compresses” the voice, making it sound deeper – I am a female DJ, and always hear about how sexy I sound on the air – it was great to hear you!
