    Why was your daughter calling you a “sart”?

    Is Britain’s fanny like America’s camel-toe?

    Jo, you don’t know how insanely jealous I am of you right now!!!!
    Didn’t have time to do Yosemite last time I went to SF but I’m definitely going next year. My fiance and I are getting married overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge in SF :-D

    The big brother in W.S. was ‘Chet’, whom I believe grew up to be Bill Pullman and landed a coupla more dignified roles, thank goodness (or Jesus — whatever your preference).

    Goo..der, you don’t lay hands on Christ. The “laying on of hands” refers to other followers of Christ laying hands on you, for purposes of prayer, healing, or in the case of what I believe Heather is talking about, serving as a channel of a spiritual gift or charism. It’s one (or more) believer to another, not we laying hands on Christ. It is modelled after Christ, who layed hands on people to heal them.

    Now, if yo’ “biznass” needs healing, well, I think there’s a Marvin Gaye song that might be in order . . .

    That is what we are doing, driving Highway 1 from SF to LA. Before that we are driving from Las Vegas to SF, via Death Valley and Yosemite :D

    And of course I’ll check in later :-)

  • minxlj

    Jo, not sure if I did Highway 1 cos I was too busy stressing out over directions, LOL!! My fiance did the driving :-D
    We did drive from SF to LA…beautiful drive, and plenty driving up and down the hills in SF – fun!!
    Note to all: driving in LA is a BREEZE compared to London!! The M25 is the seventh circle of hell!!

    Gotcha Jo. Feminine naughty bits, no?

    Effie, for some reason, both of my kids used F for S when they were learning to talk. We were someplace public when I explained something to my little girl and she shouted, “Daddy! You are FART!!”

  • Lilla

    Gosh, Heather you look p*ssed off! Wanna trade in and do my job in the office?! Don’t think so. Enjoy the snow sweetheart, we only get sad little drizzle here in London….

    Why do you think the word fanny is so funny, Jo?

    Oh, and I don’t call it a fanny pack – I hear it called a fag bag most of the time. I don’t know where that term came from.

    Don’t Brits call cigarettes “fags”? I think that is funny.

    Hi to all the Brits :-D
    Good international flavour to the dooce.com comments this week!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-happy-at-home

    Jo, sorry I missed your comment before about my hatred of Marmite. I even made a post on my blog about it.

    I tried out your Dooce chat forum. It is nice, but I have to say – nothing beats the real thing!

    I forgot about that weird science oozing thing…gross.

  • U.B.

    Goooooooder — Mormon elders impart blessings by ‘laying on the hands’. They put their hands on your head then make a bunch of stuff up, uh, I mean, give you a blessing that the holy spirit inspires within them. Sometimes they put a dollop of consecrated oil on your head and you are ‘annointed’ as well.

    Which either means you are *really* blessed or you need to shampoo at least twice later.

    So am I the only mom who taught her son it’s just called penis?

    And, I SWEAR I had nothing to do with this, but my kiddo is I think afraid to play with it. Because he is afraid it will FALL OFF. I have no idea where he got that from, honest!!

    I love skiing, have never snow boarded though. My friend’s brother nearly dying on the first day of his snow boarding holiday kinda put me off…

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-happy-at-home

    OMG, I never knew about F5 either! Why the hell didn’t anyone tell me about this sooner!?!

  • Torrie

    I also heart Strizzay.
    I once was walking a dog and he shit and the hair was at the end of the shit- so, I had to pull the hair out of his ass because a piece of shit was dangling and he kept spinning around in circles.
    It was a lovely experience.

    I am suddenly reminded of a time when I was younger, we were in the grocery store and my little sister, who was about 3 at the time, saw a box of Smarties on display and yelled out “Farties, Mommy–farties!” She couldn’t quite get the “sm” sound out yet–well, you should have seen the look on the teller’s face–my Mom’s face went beet red too! My sister was soon taught how to pronounce “SMarties” properly! :)

    Darn wintersports! I wish I could ski, but when I ski, it looks like Bridget Jones in the second part.
    Straight down.
    Get out of my way, I can’t stop…
    NO JOKING!

    that’s a neato coat you got goin’ on there, heather, with the long neck thing to keep your neck all toasty. megot’s to get one (but not for hurling myself down a hill).

    I have never seen that movie, Mrs. Wondering. I don’t know what an ass troll looks like, but I saw this Drew Barrymore movie once, I think it was called Cat’s Eye, where there was this scary troll that sucked the air out of her nose at night. Very creepy. I think that is what a literal ass troll looks like. Then there are figurative ass trolls – people who are judgmental, say hurtful things, etc.

    But no, I don’t think you are the lowest of low of personalities. I don’t think you are an ass troll now because you at least have a sense of humor (er, humour, for the Brits). I will be more careful in the future when doling out the Ass Troll moniker.
