Here, kitty kitty!

  • Nilbo

    Girl A., I also think I have a little bit of a crush on you. What you said was very wise. In the course of responding to Annabelle earlier, I was … well, a bit snippy and snide. It was less than I like to be, and I apologize to Annabelle and anyone else who might have taken offense.

    i just met an old roommate last night. we got our first apartment together, worked together, and dated new docs, you know, residents, back in the early 90′s.
    she got pregnant then. she was 23. she had an abortion. she has since married (not that same guy) and had 3 kids. she told me last night that although she felt it was the right choice at the time, not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of that baby.

    i was ready to support her decision, whichever way she choose. but i still think about it, how old that child would be now…
    these are very tough topics to teach your children, aren’t they? i hope i can do it right when the time comes. eek, not looking forward to it.

    I would LOVE to get Chuck together with my dog, Rusty. They could run the Sheba-500 together in our back yard.


    Please remove your finger.

  • Your Mom

    Oral sex with the Dukes of Hazzard? What?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I think Chuck is some sort of terrier mutt. But I personally think mutts are way smarter than purebreds. And WAY cuter.

    Girl.A: antediluvian?

    I saw what you wrote about the A1 and the speculum, and I’m shocked. Shocked that you would share something that clearly meant more than the $2 you laid on the dresser for me before you wriggled into the stirrups.

  • kristine

    I swear I didn’t start this thread!

    Oh! If I were a kitty I’d be looking for a tree to climb!

    Kristine, don’t even tell me you didn’t do boohbah things to figurines…not even Ken? ;)

  • Jenie

    Yay…I forgot it was Chuck Friday…my day is better already!

    (and is it bad that I still haven’t figured out what company matt jackson works for?? Not that I want to spam him or anything…I’m just feeling a little dimwitted! It happens often!) ;o)





  • Nilbo

    (sigh) I guess I always hoped it wasn’t just me. I blame it on the price of liquor. When I was a teenager, I could never afford enough liquor to get a girl so drunk that I looked good.

  • Susie

    CK, I could tell you were about a year cooler.

  • Nathan Logan

    The two biggies being abortion and euthanasia. Not Dooce and me. I’m happy to break 200 visits a day. And that’s when I abuse the refresh key on my own site…

  • kristine

    I have a 14 year old and he is so cool about things.
    I told him the other day that he has to find a way to clear up the budding acne…and then he quoted my blog, “Or I will never get a girl to touch me weenie”?
    I just stood there for a second and stared at him out of shock.
    he then said, “Where’s the Apricot face mask?”

    I love him. I love that he can talk about it, in his own way.

  • smacks

    Can someone tell me what kind of dog he is?

  • diana

    Sorry to cross-post, but my ISP is (still) banned from commenting at Ye Olde Blurbomat, and I just *had* to comment.

    In regards to his having married into ownership of one of more Sebadoh albums, could you please let Jon know that this is definitely a good thing? And he needs to go listen to Lou Barlow and all his yummy side projects? (Sebadoh, Sentridoh, Folk Implosion, Deluxx Folk Implosion, etc, etc.)

    Incidentally, my husband and I will be seeing Lou play a concert in Cleveland tomorrow night. I’ve been waiting years to see Lou live, and I may not ever see him play live again, because he now has a baby daughter. :-P

  • kalki

    part-timer, Atlanta has been on my mind all day today. I hope they find the person VERY soon. Stay safe!

  • Susie

    Nobody says ASS TROLL quite like you, Katiebbaw!

  • Nathan Logan

    I missed the abortion debate! Definitely a good thing… Sometimes I get a little too _into_ those sorts of things.


    Coincidentally, it was only yesterday that I wrote about (a form of) euthanasia on my very own blog [insert shameless plug here]! Who knew? Two of the biggies in two days!

    And for you regulars, over 700 comments is ridiculous. RI. DIC. U. LOUS.

  • ashik

    I wish I was abstinent through highshool, but unfortunately instead fell for the attention from boys and the “aw, come on baby, you’re not going to stop now, are you?”
    Physically protected, yes…. but not emotionally.

    I’m audi.

  • Susie

    Yea, Nilbo, after all this time, didn’t anyone TELL you? They passed out little cards at the exits after that assembly that said, “we mean ABSTAIN from Nilbo.” I thought you knew…

  • Circus Kelli

    Susie, you’re 6? Cool. I’m 7! :)

  • Troll on Carson’s Head

    yeeeyha, stop playing wit da bits.

  • redsaid

    Chuckles, oh Chuckles, what ARE you sweet dog?

    I want to know your origin because you are SOOOO cute and shouldn’t be just one of a kind!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Yes Nilbo, it does make for some fun conversation. And it is always fun to say ASS TROLL!

    Smacks – Chuck’s nose looks very scrumptious!!!

  • Ruth
  • kalki

    I was abstinent through high school, and I believe that may be the best option for a lot of kids. But like everyone here has said, it’s unrealistic to expect all kids to avoid sex, and so we might as well educate them so they are as safe as possible. That opens a HUGE can of worms, though, at least in more conservative areas like where I live.

  • Susie

    Last night a troll came here to the playground. Some kids ran away or got very quiet. Some of us just kept talking as though the troll weren’t here. Only a couple spoke to the troll. My mom told me it’s better to ignore trolls. I’m 6 this morning. I’m usually about 6 when I’m here. I really should see someone about this.

  • Girl.A

    I will just say this: you don’t have to apologize for your beliefs. Your beliefs define you, and only you.

    The zen master says – Other people’s shapes are not defined by our edges.

    In other words, if we believe ourselves to be right, we don’t have a monopoly on what’s right for everyone.

    If we believe ourselves to be good, we can also believe it aint the only good flavor in the box.

  • Susie

    kendra, you might wanna talk at her anyway, if you’re close. Even if she doesn’t appear to be engaged in the conversation, it’s getting in.

    My soapbox: indoctrinate your kids early and often on the biol. facts as well as your own morality/religion/philosophy. From toddlerhood. If they’re asking questions, it’s too late, because they’ve already heard some info somewhere else. I don’t really mean “it’s too late,” but it makes the parents’ job more difficult. If they are “immunized” with the truth by someone who loves them, before they start hearing stuff like “oral sex isn’t sex,” then they already know that stuff is bullshit. It’s harder for the parent to come in after the fact and try to convince the kid that what her friends have told her is wrong. Sorry to push you off the box, there, cat.

    Bucky, I’ll say it for you: “she said ‘box’, heh heh”

  • smacks

    You want to eat Chuck’s nose?

  • carson

    I am female, but I believe my troll is a male.

    Yup. He’s got Naughty Bits.

  • part-timer

    What is the deal with blogger??!! I have been trying to leave comments on everyones’ site. Pppfffttt!

    Some fucking lunatic murdered a prominant judge, a court reporter and a deputy here this AM. And they CAN’T FIND HIM! That Judge swore Hubby in to the Bar. Very sad. Going home. Scared to walk to my car.

    ANYWAY, just wanted to say, “Have a great weekend, everyone!”


  • Nilbo

    KBBAW – my take on the ass trolls is that they can’t stand people talking about Dooce or Chuck or Mouse or .. well, anyone but them. So they come in, rag for a few sentences … and we oblige.

  • Girl.A

    Ruth, cool.

    Email me, will ya?

  • greenthumb

    I’m with you Bucky, telling me that I’ll go blind and that hair would grow only facinated my inner monkey child. I tested that theory into the ground…more or less.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Chuckles has to be the cutest doggie in the world. He still has that little puppy face. And that big black nose – I just want to eat it up!

    Chuck Fridays – Now one more reason to look forward to the end of the week.

    livejournal sucks ass.

    I dunno. I distinctly remember sitting through a fascinating lecture on the Benefits of Abstinence in high school, and my clearest memory was that Kathy Stewart was wearing pink panties, which I could see because he was sorta sitting indelicately for a girl in a short skirt.

    Maybe the girls listened. Or maybe they just took the whole thing to mean they should be abstinent with ME.

    When my girls got to high school, I didn’t even bother to try and convince them abstinence was best. The mantra I repeated, time and time again, was “Don’t do anything life threatening. And don’t do anything life altering.” Simple, straightforward, easy to remember, and plenty of leeway to be a normal teenager without feeling guilty.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Why does someone as annoying as Sue get the honor of being #100? And why do the ass trolls that hate Dooce feel it is necessary to leave comments on her site?

  • Ruth

    GirlA & KatieB, you make me smile. :) <— see, this is me smiling.

    I’m done talking about the whole deal. I just refuse to be apologetic for what I believe. I have my reasons.

    Now where are my Skittles?

  • Susie

    cat, you climb up there anytime you want, we’ll catch you.

    Bucky, your sis was honest. Honesty always has an impact.

  • kieran

    Dog looks mean…mean like a rabbit!

    kristine –

    I just know that 10 years ago when I was deciding whether or not I should have sex, I really hadn’t thought about it. I thought I was ready, but I know now that I wasn’t.

    I thought I was the absolute last kid to get physical with someone else. Thinking back, I wasn’t the last kid (not by a long shot) and really regret my choice.

    NOW, my sister is 14 and I fear for her on a daily basis. She’s not the type to talk about anything. The second anything like this is brough up, she clams up and says she doesn’t want to talk about that stuff.

    I only hope that when I have kids that I start off with the lines of communication as open as possible.
