Phone War

Beth taking a picture of me taking a picture of her with Jon’s cell phone. I think it’s time I get my own cell phone, but then people could call me and I’m just not ready for that.

    I wonder how many panty puppies Dooce is going to end up with by the end of this month? I guess six.

    Southern Man – Neil Young

    Southern man
    better keep your head
    Don’t forget
    what your good book said
    Southern change
    gonna come at last
    Now your crosses
    are burning fast
    Southern man

    I saw cotton
    and I saw black
    Tall white mansions
    and little shacks.
    Southern man
    when will you
    pay them back?
    I heard screamin’
    and bullwhips cracking
    How long? How long?

    Lily Belle,
    your hair is golden brown
    I’ve seen your black man
    comin’ round
    Swear by God
    I’m gonna cut him down!
    I heard screamin’
    and bullwhips cracking
    How long? How long?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    WTF between three camera whores no picture of the panty puppy? (That wasn’t an insult. sheesh. Why is it that all smart ass friendly remarks have to be noted as such?)

  • Em

    My what a noir new masthead you have. Sexy!

  • Andrea in Canada

    Ada is from Victoria as well! Where has she gone? We emailed each other once.

  • Andrea in Canada

    Next time take the panty puppy but run like heck when you see the A1 Steak Sauce coming out of the refridgerator. JUST GET OUTTA THERE!

  • beckythefirst

    THE MIGHTY JIMBO! good to see you! looks like your trip is going well. those were some awesome glacier pics, dude.

  • Andrea in Canada

    Wendy, I know there is one other for sure and a girlfriend of mine reads the site and has posted once and she is also in Victoria….*Shan in Victoria*. There are *DEECE* out there! LOL

    Oh Heather, what have you done? YOu have created DEECE!!

  • Andrea in Canada

    Oh ….NEW masthead! (is that what it’s called?) Great job! Your eyes?

    Me: the wanna be blogger because I love to write but too nervous to even know where to start….

  • rockandrollchick

    Oh boy, did I need a laugh tonight (or a cry), and you delivered Heather. I have 28 kids coming for a 7th birthday party tomorrow and this just de-stressed me for a second. Thanks.

  • cottoncandygirl1

    a very big part of me wants you to have that pink pup at VS. I’ll have to see if they have one on display at the store near me.

  • http://http:/ Spuriousplum

    Dang Cold,

    How about Wigwam? No words, yeah!

  • wendyinBC

    Andrea In Canada –
    I’m in Vancouver!! I wonder if there’s a lot of Canadian Dooce fans…(two or more would be Canadian Deece??) this thing on??

  • Dang Cold..


    thats a bob dylan tune :P

  • Rachael

    Has anyone else clicked on the ‘Stick your nose in’ google ad (right underneath the ‘fart machine’ ad)? Those things are – ahem – an interesting look.

  • Caroline

    I totally would’ve taken the panty puppy.

  • Dang Cold..

    *huge gulp of vodka*

    another neil young tune anyone?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Personally I want to see a masthead that mimics those project runway people. Like the scary one with crazy hair and blue eyeshadow. Wendy? Have Beth make you up to look just like her and do the damn thang.

  • woman lover

    Dear Dang Cold

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. Thank you very much.

    As to dooce and anal sex, why would she even mention that if she wasn’t. The hint is way to strong to conclude that she does not engage in it.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Shouldn’t it be Doorc?

  • Cristin


  • Christine

    how retarded am I, that it took me forever to get the masthead?

  • copy_kitty

    On the subject of cell phones.

    My husband and I only use cell phones. And only to talk. I’ve become EXTREMELY attached to my b+w screen, no camera, etc.

    It’s a phone, and I want to TALK on it.

    (We both have laptops, so we can Wi-Fi in most places these days. Plus, we own our own advertising agency, and have never received an email that actually constituted a life-threatening emergency.)

    But I can see the writing on the wall. My next phone is going to be all crazy. Full o’ useless features. And maybe even able to SEND ME MESSAGES BASED ON MY LOCATION.

    Big Brother, anyone?

    Did I mention that I just want to talk on the damn thing?!


  • trinity

    nice! love the red and black

  • Kaiasmom

    I love the new masthead and adn black suit you lol….

  • copy_kitty

    Dang Cold.. (two dots tonight) and La Pixiatrix:

    What am I missing? I refreshed the home page? New masthead?!

  • La Pixiatrix

    AWESOME stark new masthead – and the footer *DORK* is classic.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Sweet lactatin’ mother Mary, I go away for a couple of days, and this place goes all “A-1 bottle up the ass” without me?

    Now I want a steak salad.

  • Dang Cold..

    mary and joseph what just happened!?!?!?

  • Jenn

    Weird! Two of the girls and work and I had the funnest camera phone war today. We were laughing so hard. Then we realized we were acting queer and stopped. We’re easily amused.

  • honestyrain

    phones with cameras. whatever happened to just using them to talk?

    (the voice of my inlaws said that)

  • copy_kitty

    And to Terri:

    So very sorry to hear about your dad. Don’t be afraid to crumple up into a little ball for as long as you need to — this is not the time to “be strong.” It’s a huge loss. And your dad must have been an AMAZING man, given his full and accomplished life.

  • copy_kitty


    OH! That threading. I’ve heard that’s a really old way to remove unwanted body hair used by all sorts of ancient cultures.

    The fact that I thought it was some freakish body mod ritual tells you something about me and my twisted mind, eh?

  • Henryk_ Sun@1146AMSydney time

    If this is an example of the quality of phone pics…………forget it!

  • La Pixiatrix

    I like this photo, but then I like grainy photos, not more than crystal clear photos – but they are interesting images anyway.

    I like a little mystery. Photos that are taken with the same amount of clarity, from the same perspective with the same amount of detail don’t have the same allure. One of my favorite cameras to this day is the 12 dollar polaroid 600 land camera I bought in 1984.

    Art can be lots of different things to different people. A grainy photo may be more evocative of a memory or feeling than one that’s crystal clear.

  • Andrea in Canada


    Very sorry to hear about your dad. You are in my thoughts today.

  • Meat L.

    Praying for the end of time, that’s all that I can do (hoo hoo), praying for the end of time, so I can end my time with you . . .

  • Susie

    Terri, so sorry. You’re right, your daddy was a looker, and so accomplished, too. I hope you’re OK. Peace to you.

  • Dang Cold..

    I solute you Madame….

  • Becky

    Are you sure it’s Beth? It looks like Meatloaf. I can almost see paradise by the dashboard light…

  • MrsDoF

    Dang Cold (#77) there are pictures over the Beth’s blog at

    the grown-ups had a get-together at The Red Iguana without the children

  • Terri

    I hate cell phones! I have to carry one for work as I’m on call 24/7 (I charter private jets) but everytime it rings (well, it doesn’t actually ‘ring’ of course it ‘plays’ some reggae type song) I cringe. I don’t understand people who are addicted to their cell phones – and TEXT MESSAGING – what is up with that!!?!? I just don’t get it.

    Btw my Dad died this week. I wrote about it on my blog if anyone cares to read it. I was very close to him, he was only 67 and I’m completely heartbroken that he is gone. Part of his last words to me were “if I can just get over this hump…” So sad.

  • Dang Cold..

    You held a grudge since September? About what complete strangers said to you in the comments section of a website? Please, please let it go. It really is a small matter.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    I jus want to know the gory nasty sweaty details of yo and “Jack”. Email me.

  • Dang Cold..

    woman lover – I just backtracked to the posts you’re referring to. I’ll agree that I didn’t find your posts back then offensive and deserving of some of the responses you were hit with. I’m really not sure what set everyone off. However, I don’t see where Heather says “she’s into anal sex” in yesterdays post. She finishes by saying there are secrets she needs to keep from us. That’s all. Neither confirmed or denied.

  • jensplace

    For copy kitty –

    Threaded is a form of eyebrow hair removal. thread is woven through the hairs and yanked. Wax or thread, that mess HURTS!!!

  • woman lover

    I have been totally vindicated. Awhile ago, when Heather discussed the “reconvening of the procedure”, I suggested anal sex for women recovering from labor, and people jumped all over me for that.

    Now look at the posting from yesterday. SHE IS INTO ANAL SEX!!!

    Hey beach gal and others, I accept your apologies.

  • BJT

    You’re not into kinky sex with motorized objects? Oh my vibrator is mine and my husbands best friend. Happy times!

  • the niffer

    Patagonia? Mighty Jimbo, tell us more!

  • Dang Cold..

    Whats all this about heathers tongue and why wasn’t I notified?!?!? I’ve clearly missed something.

    Andrea in Canada – vancouver island is stunning!!! You’re lucky as heck…
