Self portrait Wednesday is in da house

Where is your self portrait, yo? According to Amanda B. (oh, and Mihow!) y’all need to bring it.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Of France!!!!

  • Nathan Logan

    Although this is only partially a self-portrait (it’s actually an engagement photo from TWO DAYS AGO!!!!!!), I think it qualifies. After all, I did set the camera on a rock and used the 10-second timer.

    She’s SO beautiful…

  • A Nonymous

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks like Liz Phair in this pic?

  • Circus Kelli

    Striz — You can come over if you promise not to kick my ass…

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I let little Patrick play with stickers, but I lucked out and he doesn’t have that insatiable need that I had as a child to stick them on every inanimate object in the house. He did, however, place a Squidward sticker on the remote control. Men of all ages seem to have to stake their claim to the remote, don’t they?

  • Annejelynn

    LOL – I just caught on to what a ‘pink guitar’ is (call me slow)

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    But the Jon one should be related to hotness/scrumptious beardedness.

  • Circus Kelli

    Kerry: Great picture!

    Striz: No, honey, that’s not your ass… it’s your gawgeous face! :)

  • Closet Metro

    Ern – my daughter got a pink Barbie guitar for Christmas, that I foolheartedly mentioned that I was actually playing more than she was, and then got badgered to post a picture on my blog.

    (but it does sound dirty, doesn’t it?)

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    I would never do that CKelli, but i will get drunk and openly mock people you don’t like, after we ride on yer bitchin hogs.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Oh Nathan you look so happy!! Congrats!

  • Shax

    I never comment here (though I like the writing,) and I have to say that anyone who tries to diagnose a child of any disease based on anecdotal evidence is a moron. How dare anyone diagnose a little girl they have never met based on postings on a blog, well written though they may be. It’s not helpful, and out of context, any group of symptoms can put someone on the “spectrum”. I almost want to tell “dweeb” and “blonde” that telling a parent you don’t know that their kid you have never met is autistic causes cancer. But that would be wrong.

  • RockStar Mommy

    Making bets on how many of the same comments a photo will get will make it much less irritating to see over and over and over again.

    Photos of Heather: Would it kill you to smile?

    Jon: He looks just like Leta!

    Leta: Too cute!

    Chuck: Go, dog, go!

    George: GEORGE!

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    I knew you were a perv CK tryin to see my ass

  • Ern

    Shax-that’s why we call them trolls!

  • geeekgirl

    Is there anything more irritating then being told to smile?

  • Anne

    I hate group activities, but click on my name for a gander at my self-portrait.

  • Ern

    Is pink guitar something dirty? Or do you really have a pink guitar?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Yes, yes there is.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Nathan, that picture is adorable. The joy in both of your faces is so obvious! Great self-portrait!!! Congratulations on your engagement!!!

  • Annejelynn

    OMG – the altoid? is that true?

    yah, I’ve never done that before…

  • manababies

    Woah, I’m nearly number 300!

    Heather, your dad is so right. You definitely have a gift for writing and have touched SO many people with your words and beautiful photos.

    Love the self portrait. The ones I take of myself are similar… when I try to smile I look really stupid, hehe.

  • Circus Kelli

    Katie B: At least he didn’t pee on the remote to mark his territory like animals do! :)

  • Closet Metro

    No, no, I haven’t played the pink guitar since, umm, yesterday. Playing the “real” guitar tonight.

  • Tracy (Kupferkopf)

    Digging the self-pic day thing – it’s good to put faces with names (or other body parts with aliases, as the case may be). Here’s the only self-pic I could access from here; technically, my husband was the self-portraiteer, but I’m a co-conspirator.

  • LadyBug

    Amber – Well, they ARE blindingly beautiful. *grin*

    Nathan – Congrats! You guys look so happy!

    Katie-be-bored – Yes. Just be thankful he didn’t pee on it to mark his territory.

  • Girl.A

    The pink guitar?

  • Closet Metro

    defender – God never smites the nice.

  • Circus Kelli

    Striz baby, hey, you put it out there on the internet and people are gonna look, ok?!

  • Closet Metro

    Dang Cold – thanks for the inspiration – one more song that I can now say I’ve played on my guitar.

  • Frog E. Luv

    OK, I’ve been inspired and started my own blog. Please feel free to visit, critique and share a laugh at my husbands expense. heehee It’s only one post and I promise that there will be more content soon.

    Frog E. Luv, formerly Katrina, a loyal Dooce reader.

    I like commas, OK?

  • Ern

    Seems I went to a meeting and dinner and missed the par-tay. :(

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Anne, you are way cuter than Velma from Scooby Doo. That chick always annoyed the crap out of me – always taking credit for what Scoob and Shaggy accomplished. I always hated her magnifying glass.

  • Ern

    But I see you all gave the troll a good spankin’ for us all and then circled the wagons around the Dou-chay for some cocktails!
    Well done, doocelings.

  • Nathan Logan

    Thanks guys! We are happy!


  • La Pixiatrix

    Sometimes crying is a very healing experience. It can bring relief and closure.

  • kristine

    Nathan, awesome picture! Congrats

  • copy_kitty

    Dang Cold.. :

    Thank you. And good night.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Yeah but katrina, does it have a self portrait?

  • Dang Cold..


    My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue) – Neil Young

    My my, hey hey
    Rock and roll is here to stay
    It’s better to burn out
    Than to fade away
    My my, hey hey.

    Out of the blue
    and into the black
    They give you this,
    but you pay for that
    And once you’re gone,
    you can never come back
    When you’re out of the blue
    and into the black.

    The king is gone
    but he’s not forgotten
    This is the story
    of a Johnny Rotten
    It’s better to burn out
    than it is to rust
    The king is gone
    but he’s not forgotten.

    Hey hey, my my
    Rock and roll can never die
    There’s more to the picture
    Than meets the eye.
    Hey hey, my my.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Ladybug and Circus Kelli, you girls think alike! haha, yeah I will definitely look at that Squidward sticker a little differently from now on. Thank goodness the little guy hasn’t discovered the art of urinating to mark his territory.

  • copy_kitty

    “Sugar and Orifices”

    That’s a great band name!

  • CanadianAmy

    Ladybug – gorgeous creatures you have there.

    STrizz – You look like all the girls that I wanted to be in high school.

  • judykwilson

    And, you said you cried yourself to sleep….but you have what seems to so many others a wonderful life–I, still and so, many, know what crap can be unintentionally instilled by our others and a mindset quite not able to deal with those “unlike” us…not to be above–but just to be ourselves…GAWD I love your dailies….and, me, I can have no children…I only have hound dogs…but only if I could write like you, Heather! WOW I look forward to Leta and Chuck each day…more of Chuck to come, now that Leta is on the move! My dear, keep giving us joy!

  • Jena

    Do you even read these things anymore, Doocey? I mean, really?

    Tip for the masses: Do not sleep in hot rollers. It hurts, you don’t much sleep and you wake up looking like that poodle from Oliver & Company. Ya know, the one Bette Midler does the voice for?

    Anyway… so how’s the fam?

  • Girl.A

    Oh yeah, so it’s easy to think that a double intendre is equally funny on both sides of the intendre. Obviously NOT the case. Sorry.

    So yeah, someone accidentally misplaced an altoid once and it was discovered by a doctor. And then it was the source of a lecture on sugar and orifices.

  • CanadianAmy

    I don’t have self portrait from today cause I have a huge zit that I was too enthusiastic about squeezing that needs to heal first.

    But if you click on my name you go to my blog and scroll down to Feb 14, there is a funny picture of my middle kid.

  • LadyBug

    Circus Kelli: Thankyouverymuch for the chocolate!
    And me too….I’d love to stay and party, but the supper dishes are caaaaallllllliiiiinnnngg.
    Have a good night everyone.
    Everyone except the trolls, that is.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Although with the way his father doesn’t seem to mind when his pee misses the toilet bowl, maybe I better a keep an eye out for Little Patrick.

  • Circus Kelli

    Thank you. You diddin miss the party baby… here have some chocolate! :)

    I should be getting myself to bed or something. I’ve been playing all night on my ‘puter… what’s wrong with me?! There was laundry to be folded! :)
