Already starting to feel the pain and it was only 9:45 in the morning

    A comfy chair!

  • Jo

    Hi to Rob from London!

  • Henryk_

    Hey, why hasn’t any one told me about the F5 function. Saves a lot of time!

  • Gooooder

    poor apes is right. they gotta learn to stop eating shit and vomit before they can evolve.


  • Gooooder

    can someone explain to me what laying your hands on christ is? not to offend but what do you do? touch the cross, touch a cookie, touch your biznass? or is this an after death thing?

  • minxlj

    LOL yeah it’s true. My dad lives in Rochdale, other family in Manchester, and every time I visit it rains! I still love Manchester though, great place to shop!!!!

  • Dang Cold..


  • Gooooder


    i meant


    but in abound might be more appropriate even though it makes almost no sense.

  • minxlj

    Ya can’t have a conversation with an American without them mentioning: “Your father smelled of elderberries!”
    *LOL* Thankfully I love Monty Python as much as they do :-D

  • romy

    heh. i know that face – that’s the “dear god, why do you keep letting me make my own decisions? why?” face. with a particular head-tilt for the ski slopes.

    humour = canadian too.

    humour, labour, colour, etc.

  • Jo

    U.B. youre just teasing me. I’ll leave it up to someone else to humour you by explaining why us brits find fanny so amusing. I think my last post gives it away. If this was a british website all this fanny talk would be outrageous.

  • Jo

    I dont actually come from Manchester, i’m from down south, but I’m here at Uni. I always thought that what people said about Manchester always raining was a myth, but the past 3 years of living here has proved them right. Doh!

  • Amanda B.

    Hi Dooce. I’m new to your site, but I think you are an amazing writer. Seriously. I also think you are super hot and I’m torn between childish jealousy and wanting to hump your leg. No? Mmmkay.

    Not all of us were pissed about the spoiler- why you gots to go all Mormon on a cracka?

    That is all.

  • mrs.wondering

    to clear things up.
    i am not offended that you called me an ass troll. i just wanted to know why i warrented being called one. ever seen Weird Science? when the brother was turned into that farting, oozing troll-type thing, THAT’S what i think of when i hear the word ass troll. or the lowest of low personality.

  • Moxie

    You look as though you’ve snowboarded into a pile of dog caca.

  • Jo

    Minx I have been to CA before and fell in love, which is why i’m going back! I’m just TOO excited.

  • U.B.

    Are the POTD rules under the FAQ? I haven’t seen them…

    Also, reading the comments — any number of them — isn’t exactly mandatory. Enjoy the pic and comment on it, if you wish.

    I would guess that if Heather has a problem with her comment section, she’ll address it, fix it or shut it down.

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Stop trybg to squeeze mr peabody to death. It IS attatched.

  • minxlj

    Fanny. *hehe*
    I nearly died of laughing when an American said to me they’d spent 3 hours on a bus and ended up with a sore fanny – LOL!!!

  • Rob from London

    Might as well say hi to the other Ukanians out there. It’s been snowing here on and off since Monday. I love it!

    I should make a point of seeking out the proper snowboarding spots. If Heather can do it, so can i!

  • Jo

    raz thats why i thought a dooce forum would be fun- we can all chat about anything, and this page can continue as it is, or become a place where people actually talk about the photo. Options, people, options!

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    poor apes

  • Jo

    Both bum-bag and fanny-pack can have me in hysterics. Imagine being the inventor of the bum-bag? why is it even called a bum bag when EVERYONE wears it round the front?? In which case, the brits should definately adopt the term Fanny-pack.

  • minxlj

    Jo, I just looked at your site – YOU LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY GAL. You will LOVE California, esp. San Francisco – I fell in love with that place and am aching to go back!!!!!!!! So before long you won’t be putting up with too much rain!

  • cmj

    Raz, see post 906.


  • Mrs.Strizzay

    My son calls his stuff his peanuts, but i refer to “it” as Mr.Peabody.

  • U.B.

    Jason — bim-bag sounds like one of the taunting frenchmen from Holy Grail.

    “Your father smelled of elderberries!”

  • Jo

    No fair! We have some piddling little flakes on and off for days but it just disappears. Who’s bright idea was it to stick Manchester in a valley so all we ever get is rain, rain, a few flakes, and more rain?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I heart you, too, Torrie!

    Hmmm, euphemisms for penis…

    schlong, weiner, johnson, cock…

    And my favorite – cacahuate

    My 3 1/2 year old calls it cacahuate, which is Spanish for peanut. Only problem with that is he is constantly saying it “Cacahuate, cacahuate!!!” At least anyone who doesn’t know Spanish doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

  • can’t resist

    re #441: “giant sized chocolate fingers.”

    That’s a pleasant euphamism, isn’t it?

  • M@

    Holy crap, am I really the first in the US to post? Check it out!

    Go Heather, strip the skin from our faces with that one look! Please post more pics from your trip.

  • Henryk_

    UB…..1k of commentary, but most nothing to do with the pic! A gathering of ‘social animals” ( meant in the nicest way) I need spell check!!

  • Torrie

    Once I was at the Bronx zoo and one of the apes vomited into his hand, looked at it, ate it, then vomited again. He did this over and over again. My boyfriend had to tear me away because i couldn’t stop watching. It was awesome.

  • Jason

    Who switched my i and u keys…dang it!

  • Jo

    Howdy minx! I have family near Newcastle. I love the place! Is it snowing there?

  • Ria

    Raz I concur

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    Yeah, but why and how does shit braid ITSELF????

  • U.B.

    Nary a clue, Jo. Enlighten us. :)

  • minxlj

    Oh YES it’s snowing here!! We’ve had tons of the stuff since the weekend, it’s great. I work here and live in Darlington (Newcastle born though) and it’s even worse there, we had another 3 inches of snow this morning. Woohoo!

  • RazDreams

    not cranky. just askin’ why not take the chatting to a chatroom. carry on. :o ) and i’m *far* from a snark…

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    My dog shits corn, and hair. If she has swallowed a long hair it will make her shit stick together so the first turd she attempts to drop will dangle a few inches away from her ass until she passes the entire starnd of hair.

  • minxlj

    Hi Jo – I’m in Newcastle, England, so you’re not too far from me!
