Friends with clean hair

Thanks to Dave or Robbins (hi, Robbins!) for taking this shot and for Beth burning it to CD and walking it over to my house. ALL THE WAY OVER HERE. That, people, is commitment.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    *_Do you see the whites of their eyes? Yeah, they are whit AND you can see them. Unless they are doing visine drops then I would say not smoking, all thought maybe smoking hot._*

  • Andrea in Canada

    Dooce, what a great shot of two people who share a great friendship!

    Beth is laughing hysterically at something and you look like a baby in a photo where an adult is dangling a stuffy over their head to make you smile! What I’m trying to say is, you look CUTE! You are such a beautiful woman!

    What is it that was so funny?

  • Bethy

    She looks like she always has clean hair, it’s you with the almost always pulled back pony tail that is highly questionable..

  • Kristina

    Happy belated birthday to Leta! How come there’s only 45 comments? If this was a picture of Leta or Jon, there would be about 350,000.

  • Fran

    Identical twins separated at birth are reunited in this undated file photo.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Cuz normally your hair is dirty and this was a momentous noteworthy occasions? :0P

  • Superplum

    Ah, the Black Sweater Club rides again.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    They hold tryouts for the Osmonds? Can I be the naughty fat one? Oh wait…..

  • Ana

    Great picture. :D

  • Cauri

    Aww you two are so adorable!! What a great picture

  • Library Girl

    Awww I’m feeling the love :)

  • Gooooder

    That is committment. My friends wouldnt walk here, there is still about 2 feet of snow in Boston and they all live more than 1 mile away, but still.

  • Hilarie

    Darling! Just darling!

  • Saroy

    You guys look like you’re having a great time. My favorite kind of picture.

  • Sarah Grace

    You guys look like you’re having a wonderful time.

    Young and in love!

  • RazDreams

    “you…light up MY LIFE!” and “Your eyes, your eyes, they tell me how much YOU CAAARRREEE, whoa-oh yeah…”

    My childhood “be fri/st end” and I used to dress alike too, and stand next to one another with one arm slung over the other person shoulders, smiling like Cheshire cats…

  • Jennifer in Kansas City

    You two look like you’re in a General Foods International Coffee commercial and somebody just said “JEAN LUC!” and then they yelled, “CUT” because they have to re-shoot because you guys will NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.

  • Elegant Goose

    Happy Birthday to little Leta… she’s really not that little though. It’s been amazing watching the changes she (and you!) have gone through in the past year. It’s been a treat to watch and it has totally helped me see what kind of mom I want to be when I get around to, you know, the whole kids thing. :-P

  • Greg

    Gee, your hair smells terrific.

  • kristal

    I love pictures of you smiling! You usually look so serious…

  • alyssa

    You two need to sign a contract with Crest.

  • karen

    Who are you looking at? What’s so funny?

  • August95

    Very nice to see you and a Friend sharing a laugh. There is not enough of either things in the world.

  • CanadianAmy

    I love girlfriend pics! Those smiles are the real deal, man!

  • Em

    Y’all are super cute and MY WHAT PRETTY HAIR YOU HAVE!

  • Sarcastic Journalist

    everone together now! awwwwww

  • Jennifer

    I know why hers says Be Fri and yours says st ends. You look like you have lots of fun together!

  • JuJuBee

    You two are so lucky to have each other, and she WALKED it over to you? Damn!

  • Tina

    Look, she’s smiling :D

  • Alaska Danielle

    You are both so adorable.

    My best friend (since I was 10 years old) and I are drunk in every photo we’ve taken as adults; I’m not sure where that ranks on the awe-som-eter.

  • Angie

    Shiny, happy people :)

  • tIffany

    Awwww! This is a great picture.

    Hey, can we dedicate comments today to the praise of girlfriends? My friend Nina rocks so hard. The other night she came over, took me to dinner then offered to FILL UP MY CAR for me because my husband is really cute about not wanting me to pump gas and stuff while I’m pregnant and all. And! She never, ever judges me for my (always) dirty hair and she never gloats over the fact that her baby is so much cuter than mine even though it’s pretty obvious that he is.

    On the drive home I taught my toddler to say “Nina, you are a GODDESS.”

    To goddesses!

  • Danielle

    So, what I wanna know is did you both have the right side of your hair tucked behind your ear (and the left side out) when you first met up for the night? or did you just do this for the camera….
    either way, it is a great shot of the two of you. And yeah, it makes me miss having a friend living nearby.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Are you *sure* you guys aren’t stoned? ‘Cause you always have those hand-me-the-Doritos grins in your pictures together.

  • Honey Bunny

    oh, how i wish i were able to have a healthy friend-relationship with women. i’m almost 30 and i have no idea what it’s like to have a close girl friend.

    you’re lucky, heather :)

  • Home Detention Lady


  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    If my teeth were that white, I’d try out for the Osmonds.


  • Jess again

    Note to self: beware that Google AutoFill thingy.

  • Beth

    Now that’s a good, shiny haired friend! :)

  • Gretchen

  • Carolynne

    Long time reader, just about first time commenter … blah, blah, blah. I’ve just never been so near to first before and I had to say something.

    You have a wonderful smile.

  • mcf

    Clean hair AND matching outfits!

  • Jessica Holden Sherwood

    Happy belated birthday to Leta, and to Dooce & DJ Blurb. It gets better from here, yeah yeah I know, you’ve heard it a thousand times.

    Oh, and nice picture — I wish I had such a good buddy near my house. Glad you do.

    Ditto Carolynne, except in the time I was typing I went from third to eighth (or more). Boo hoo.

  • kinda weirded out

    never been this close to first… so i just felt the need to say something… although in the time it has taken me to write this, probably 42 more people have commented… oh well. nice picture of good friends!
    keep on doocing!

  • Kellie

  • Laura
