*Dang Cold enters the empty stage as Hamlet and begins*
To be, or not to be–that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep–
No more–and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep–
To sleep–perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’ oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country, from whose bourn
No traveller returns, puzzles the will,
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprise of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action. — Soft you now,
The fair Ophelia! — Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remembered.
CM — You *do* seem to be in a particularly frisky mood today. Or is it my imagination?
James, shouldn’t you be home picking the lint out of your Octopussy?
Any votes for Kate Winslet??? In “self portrait” that’s totally what I see.
There’s a lot of Katie/Katy/Kate girls here. I’m a Katy meself (from Kathleen).
We went snowboarding once and I fell so much I finally just sat on the board, using it as a sled. that was waaay more fun!
I don’t see it. That lady has a pointy chin.
Lily – I haven’t read a SW book since the original (still have my very yellowed copy from 1977). I read a lot, but very little science fiction.
Circus Kelli- You said it. I have to put little booties on my dog’s feet before she goes out in the yard in the morning or I’ll be picking icy mud slush out of her paws all day. Mmmm, icy mud slush – that could be a novelty beverage.
CM- so, do you read any of the books, or do you just like the movies. i used to like all the books, and then they veered of into the New Jedi Order series and they killed Chewbacca. They lost me after that. R. A. Salvatore should have been stopped, or shot.
Heather… you look JUST LIKE Carrie-Ann Moss (Trinity, Matrix) Who else agrees?
I’m missing so much and it’s bathtime. Back later. Hi guys!
Dang! Hi Dang! *waving*

You should be proud! Your name is totally unique.
lily – depending on where you put your weight, you don’t fall on your ass so much as your FACE.
Closet – 40 gig if you can manage it.
Lily, I love you, you big geek.
I just realized I can’t spell today either.
Thank you CM. I never thought all that reading would pay off. (Exept as a Jeopardy question)
lotta cheap defective keybaords out ther…
Snow makes me feel delicious. Especially when I pour vodka over it…then I’m not only delicious, but I’m also a professional stripper as well. Well, that what they say down at the farm. Errr…the farm being my house, in my bedroom, with my boy.
that is all.
niffer- my weight decide it wants to be centered in my ass, so that’s what i usually fall on.
Kashyyyk is the Wookie home world, for those of you that have not spent away too much money on sci-fi books.
I’ve never heard of snow called “pow” before–and I’m up in Canada, the land of snow–but if it works for you…..
FYI–I caved and have started a blog of my own (click the link)
chloe- when i read the comments about the pic, and saw the references to Hoth and all it was missing a Wookie.
this led me to think, ‘well, the ski lift does look like a wrecked Imperial AT-AT walker.’ And then to, ‘i wouldn’t want to be on Hoth, i’d want to be on Kashyyyk, where there are super tall trees and it is a huge forest.’
i think i have just surpassed dorkdom for geekdom.
my mom and i were watching part of a women’s curling competition on tv yesterday. we are still trying to figure out how they slide on one foot and push themselves with the other and not fall flat on their asses.
Katieee why not allow anonymous comments? I don’t have a blogger thingy. Ah well, here’s what I was going to comment:
Sadly my guess is that it wasn’t dog poop. I used to work in downtown dallas and would regularly walk past massive piles of human feces. Which kind of made me think well, at least the homeless people are getting plenty to eat, right?
Welcome to blogging Katie.
I can’t spell my own name today. Takes me forever to type one comment. Dyslexia, no, just stupid fingers.
I have a niece named Kate. We call her Katie. She’ll be one next month. So there are still new Katies around!
Curling: Ok… I’ve heard of it, but what is it again? Brain cells have been lost recently, never to return.
My name didn’t make it at all.
Gotcha, CK. Still close enough to my old stomping grounds to make me twitch, though!
Niffer — Curling should be a primo ass workout.
And by the way, I got the baby back to sleep, so I’m not neglecting her…since there apparently are many people who read this site who rush to judgment that way
Aw my earlier comment didn’t post. That’s okay, it was a tacky joke anyway.
Those trees in the background look amazing with all that snow. Like a movie set.
Aww squirl! I hope you didn’t catch the flu from visiting my site. Feel better soon!
Nathan, right, right…Dooce is my priority, Dooce is my priority, Dooce is…
Crap, there’s that baby calling me again…
’tis. My ass is primo killing today.
Katiebbaw- i think all the veriations of ‘Katherine” had a peak in the 80s.
Sad fact- i graduated HS in a class of 4 Katies, 1 Katy, and 1 Kate. in a class of 60.
I was the Kate.
Aww squirl! I hope you didnâ€™t catch the flu from visiting my site. Feel better soon!
Damn computer viruses…
I checked out your site and I love it. You all have inspired me to go ahead and create my own (which I have done on firm time, doncha know?). I have not decided if I am going to tell friends and family about it yet. They might not want to see what I have to say. LOLOL. Good job on yours, Katie!!!!
CK – Curling is like shuffle board on ice. And you through the rocks with your whole body, not just your hand. It’s REALLY boring to watch, but actually quite fun to play.
Ha. My name had its brief, shining moment in 1962.
Niffer – pretty please with chocolate sauce, sprinkles, whipped cream, and a cherry on top.
And a diamond necklace.
Hi Chloe *wink*
How *you* doin’?
Tiffany, thanks, I’d take it away from you if I could. I’m not pregnant.
My name peaked in the 80′s. Everyone must have seen how adorable I was and the name became extremely popular!
Closet – I’m not so much into the jewelry, but an iPod might get you somewhere.

Have you guys been to this website?
hehehe, i think it is funny that the spelling of my name peaked between 1900-1910.
40 gig, mini, or a shuffle?
Hmmm.. I think I just made up an apple name. Whatever works.
Nif: Thanks! Now I remember what it is.
