I liked when the Pizza Hut back in college had their “T” stolen….. they’ll always be Pizza HU to me. (say it with FEELING! and a Tai-chi KICK!)
is that SLC? I like the lampposts.
Whoah, that’s kind of creepy that someone cares enough to investigate how much another reader has commented. (shivers)
Neat picture. It looks like the words are just hovering there in the sky.
although, I have to agree with Christi, drives me nuts when places don’t replace broken bulbs. Is this one broken or is there a telephone pole in front of the word?
(*my* first comment, anyway)
REPLACE the lights..gawd..I so hate that. It is annoying. Unless it says something funny..then it’s ok.
Only a madman would choose that font for a sign.
Hrm. I’d rather see a picture of Leta or Chuckles.
I just realized – the reason the U, the R and the I are covered is because BATMAN IS STANDING THERE! I didn’t know Salt Lake City had the same nefarious criminals as Gotham. In fact, I’ll bet Dooce even goes around fighting crime (when she’s not blogging, taking care of Leta, charming everyone on the information superhighway) and deflects bullets with her bracelets! Damn, Dooce, you sure can keep a secret!
Wow! only 3 comments! I haven’t seen that in a long time. Beautiful pic of Leta this weekend.
I hate it when they don’t replace the lights in signs. It also drives me nuts when the letters fall out of the signs and they never fix them. Tacky, tacky.
Ohhh! I was hoping for more Leta Choco pix!
Do it, Heather. Charge a nickel per comment — I’m telling you, w/ all the new NYT exposure, you’ll need the help to support your bandwith.
I’d gladly pay. Others would, too.
but it’s the last secty you have youw atch out for.. they’re evil!
looks like First??!!
Good Morning Internet! (and Lesley & Rebecca @UWM)
Marti – put that on a T-shirt, and you’ll never again have trouble being picked up, and definitely not out of pity.
Oooo priddy lites
Need I elaborate?

Circus – Iâ€™ll put some coffee on for you, sleepy head.
You got a coffee IV I could hook up to?
Kendra — I think, frankly, that I have more faith in Willy’s ability to, er, pop up.
Tiffany — You are EVIL. I admire that. I s’pose you’ll be teaching Nicolaus to say “May I mambo dogface to the banana patch?” when he goes to school. . .

“…She was the only when I ever â€œdeliberatelyâ€ put in the car to get her to sleep…”
That should be “the only ONE…”

In Canada, we have Wiarton Willy instead of Punxsutawny Phil. I wonder whoâ€™s better at predictingâ€¦
I wonder what the damn animals think of all us crazy humans…
Congratulations? on the NYT piece. It was cool to see you and Fussy there, even if the context was a bit…devious.
$1,000 bucks from Google in ONE MONTH? Lord Jesus. Congrats, girl.

Sorry the ride in the car didn’t work. Sweet Pea was the same way. She wouldn’t nap in the car, and getting her to sleep was like pulling teeth sometimes. She was the only when I ever “deliberately” put in the car to get her to sleep. She eventually fell asleep and woke right up when I pulled into the driveway.
This morning, she was wide awake at 5:00am — an hour after her brother woke up.
Is it possible to die from sleep deprivation?
In high school I had a friend who refused to believe that Groundhog’s Day was real. She was from Israel and since we met in jr high one of my hobbies was to feed her bullshit about American culture and see how long she’d believe me. So our jr year I told her “Hey, Happy Groundhog Day!” and she was all WHATEVER TIFFANY. And I was all No seriously. Today is Groundhog Day. I explained what it was, with the groundhog seeing his shadow and everything. She looked right at me and said “I hate you.” and walked away.
And now we know why I have no friends.
A guy I went to high school with had a old Ford pickup, but the “r” on the tailgate had fallen off, so everyone called his ride “the Fod”.
…and I thought WE had humourously named locations in Australia!!
Whats Ground Hog Day? I seem to recall a terrible old movie about Billy’s day repeating over and over but what is it REALLY?
Knob Gobbler: It’s quite simple. You have a town, Gobbler’s Knob, where they have a “special” groundhog named Punxsutawny Phil (that’s pronounced punks-a-tawny). On Feb. 2, the scads of people with nothing better to do gather around Phil’s lair, and wait for him to pop up.
If he sees his shadow, it means there will be six more weeks of winter. If he doesn’t see his shadow, it means early spring.
See? It’s all very scientific and not the least bit silly and superstitious.
I swear I am not inventing this. Check out CNN:
Happy Groundhog Day, ever’body!
Makes me wish I were at Gobbler’s Knob waiting for the furry critter to pop up.
Now I feel like I need some Astroglide. . .
Heather, you know I hate to give advice but here it comes.
Never attempt to do ANYTHING AT ALL until your child is at least 32 years old. Even then it will be a rush to get done.
Wow, the talk has really gone lubey since I went to bed.
I’d totally love to join the conversation, but, being a virgin and all, I really wouldn’t know what to contribute.
*ducks god’s avenging lightning*
Oh, and folks — use the Icy Hot stick. Your hands never touch the magical balm, so you can go from relief to release without a hands-washing in between.
Re. one nap, it’s not necessarily a bad thing: my 17 month old switched to just one a day at 1 year. It’s worked out better – he does one 1.30-2 hour nap from 12-2, rather than 2 shorter naps. A break I can rely on every day like clockwork. And he sleeps later in the morning.
just an hour and a half shy of Thursday here!
Amanda B…..a wise decision re the use of icy hot as a lubricant.. :-0
looks like I’m the last to post tonight -? until some crazy AM hour tomorrow…g’night night~
wait – right now IS ‘tomorrow’ – gads, I gotta go to bed
Coming up next: Bats in the belfry
the Phantom of the Opera
Sorry Annejelyn….it’s Wednesday 2Feb05 – 8:22pm here
