Hi Ho Silver!
I loved the U2 post. I have been unashamedly in love with Bono and the band since The Joshua Tree. Bono dedicated “Kite” to his dad, too, which makes me bawl.
Check out the DVD “U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle Ireland.” Bono does the most amazingly heartfelt segue between “All I Want Is You” and “Where the Streets Have No Name.” Seriously kick-ass. If you like to belt out U2 lyrics, that’s the one, baby. That’s the ONE!
Ew. Could I BE any more of a lunatic groupie? Hee.
It’s all about the love! And fuzzy pink sweaters!
Well, I’m surprised that I’ve not yet seen a recipe for baby poop cake exotically spiced with slightly *used* A1 sauce.
Henryk … and I should take *your* advice??
Kristine, it’s just cyber chocolate – c’mon, Dr. A wouldn’t mind…
Scott. You are not my father. Trust me.
And I’m thinkin’ I’ll stick with my red hot primate love. It’s puhlenty satisfying, thank you veddy much. Unless maybe there’s an opportunity with the Holy Ghost. Cuz, hm, that could be cosmic.
Sweet AmandaB, see above!
Ah, you doocelings add so much to my day. I heart you.
Love the piggies on the froggie!!
Bailey’s Irish Cream Fudge
4Â½ cups sugar
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
Â½ lb. butter
2 pkgs. milk chocolate chips
1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 jars (7 oz. each) marshmallow cream
2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup Baileyâ€™s Irish Cream
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
Line 9×13-inch pan with tin foil and butter or spray with Pam. (Using cookie sheet, fudge doesn’t come out of pan as easily.)
In a large bowl, mix together chocolate chips, marshmallow cream, vanilla, Irish Cream. Set aside. Heat butter, sugar and milk to a boil, reduce heat and cook slowly for 11 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour milk mixture over the ingredients in bowl and stir slowly to blend. DO NOT USE A MIXER. Add nuts. Pour fudge into pan and chill. Cut when cold. (Fudge will stay soft, and not completely harden.)
The mechanics of how one would go about “doing” the Holy Ghost are mind boggling. But not entirely outside the realm of reality… I think I’ll try it.
That is so incredibly cute! I love her pigtails!
Amanda – according to Chef from South Park, there are many kinds of love, including “Simon and Garfunkel Love”
nothin’ like little girl lovin’. enough to melt your heart.
Amanda B, you are being awfully selective with your love, aren’t you? Love should be all-inclusive. Hot, sweaty, shit-throwing primate hanky panky is a worthy competitor to your bastardized monkey love.
The new design ROCKS, and that is one sweet valentine’s day picture. Leta looks MUCH older from the back, doesn’t she?
Happy Lovin’ Day to the Armstrongs and all the dorklings out here!
Thanks for the post. I’m a stay-at-home dad with 3 kids hoping that they will smile at strangers someday too–though they are not allowed to talk to them yet
Leta is such a cutie! & those pigtails make me miss having hair of my very own.
Moose- I am shocked at your question. Is there any type of love besides Monkey Love?
Awww, little “BjÃ¶rk”-baby and her Valentine hug! Almost makes this day tolerable…
So.jealous.of.BFE. For a blessing has been bestowed upon her by the great Dooce Almighty. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
So are y’all saying Dooce is the Holy Ghost?
Do mormons even “do” the holy ghost?
BUCKSTER! You just got the dooce-approval, which is similar in stature to being one of Christ’s chosen children. Can I come to yalls party? Huh? Huh? Or is it a “private” party kinda thing? Because in that case, I REALLY wanna come, and so does Tammy Littlenut.
My ovaries, eeeeeep. Ow Ow Ow Ow.
Happy Valentines Day All!
Okay, I’ve been kicking around this idea:
*Everything I ever learned, I learned from reading Dooce*
* If you have cabbage in your bra, embrace it!
I’m feelin the love today!
MG2 – Of course you are the Queef Master. I mean, come on! Is there really any competition?
Moose – I am your father. Search your heart. You know it to be true. I mean… Yeah, trust me red hot simian love is great. That’s why I have monkey bars in my bedroom!
I don’t know what’s cuter…her pigtails or the loving she’s giving to that other little girl.
Indeed, a very nice post, BFE. What we were all thinking, only put more nicely (kinda like a little Dooce acholyte, eh?)
In the spirit of love that seems to be going around, I haven’t got any chocolate, but I made the most delicious sugar cookies in the world yesterday, so help yourselves!
*Erin offers cookies with frosting and sprinkles*
AWww….wuv me some wittle izzy…
Moose…..beware the bloke offering things over a PC!
Heather, I haven’t read any of the comments yet, but I had to post this link for you. I thought it would be a great Valentines present for you (hint, hint, Jon!)
Happy Crappin’ V-day
BFE, very nicely done.
Dang Cold.., I love that you have become the official greeter. Your are so hospitable. Hospitality is a wonderful thing. Enjoy your dinner out with Mrs. Cold.
Now, here are some gooey cupcakes with little heart sprinkles, left over from the 3rd grade party, take one and pass the tray . . .
Bucky Four-Eyes, I totally want to party with you.
I love the poop candy!
I’m on Atkins and ALL CANDY ON ATKINS is poop candy!
I found a picture for dooce. It was the ‘chocolate covered prunes’ picture I took.
That’s the only thing I’m giving out this VD…
happy ‘choco covered prunes’ day Dooce!
O. My. Gosh. the pigtails are too cute for words. And the baby love is too cute for words. I just told my husband today I’m not sure I could handle having kids, but now you’re making my biological clock tick
am I first?
Really, really, cute! What precious little girls.
btw, my browser can finally see the numbers for each post. Yeehaw!
Hey Leta! Happy Valentines Day! Will you be my valentine?
Sidney Ann…we are all numbers in a vast PC somewhere! Big Brother is watchingggggggggggg!!!
Scott, you suggesting I should trust you?
Oooh, we’re being numbered now.
SCOTT. What about ME?? Am I your Queef Master or what, bitch?
Ladybug- I agree. It is a nunya business kinda thing. Why the hell would any one care about his ex wife? Jesus people. Dooce, I used to do the same wondering about my future husband, too. I would worry he was sleeping around, giving away my loving to some slutty teen and receiveing the clap in return. Little did I know not only had he spreadeth the love around, he was already married…with kids no less. Funny how things work out.
Moose – We should all be down with the monkey lovin’. Trust me. I also gave a shout out to Girl A with the Dentata heart. I hope she enjoys it.
You guys with your father stories are making my eyes as moist as Bucky’s snack cake! All mildewy.
My daddy is a wonderful father, although we’ve had our ups and downs, and I want to tell him now more than ever how much he means to me. But the best part about my daddy? He already knows.
Heather, beautiful, and thank you for sharing it. Thank you for smiling at all of us strangers.
Erin H, tough story. My heart goes out to your family.
Circus Kellie, what a story you told! Sounds like it’s been a rollercoaster ride.
BFE, yes you should get mushy more often.
I’m thinking maybe another round of chocolates for the Dorkling Dooce Squad!
Dang, good for you for treating your wife like royalty. You’re a good man.
Amanda B & Minkey — did you see that one of Scott’s (#183) hearts is for “Monkey Love”????
good luck with the fort. And arent you nice taking your lady out to dinner.
Thank you for being so candid.
I’ll hop on board and give a shout out to bucky as well. you rock my world..
just read jon’s article posted by ladybug. I’m no stranger to emotional distance. Tough thing to overcome. I’d be lost without my wife. She is SO getting a kick ass dinner tonight. thank god I dry cleaned my suits.
meantime, this is such a boring day at work I think I’m going to build a little fort around my desk.
