    Vanessa, I’m in Oxford. They keep saying spring will come but it hasn’t happened. I miss Oklahoma weather! 70 one day, 40 the next.

    These encoded titles are becoming slightly confusing. Perhaps Dooce is a member of an inconspicuous organization of bloggers.

    Four-letter words ending in “k” – her method is clear. However, what does this mean and, more importantly, why?

    Even her pages are bottomed-off with “DORK”. There is no coincidence to this people. I smell…

    CONSPIRACY!

    Sara, I love Oxford, it’s gorgeous. I was in London over Christmas, and it was cold but not freezing. OK and AR have similar weather. Last Wed. it snowed here, and yesterday it was 70 degrees. When are you coming back?

    I have to hear this song. Can someone sing it for me?

    Love the photo.

  • Squirl

    I thought it said president, too. And I’ve had my cofee and been awake for three hours already! No excuse.

    Vanessa, I’m coming back for June to set up house, and then I’ll come back to Oxford for my husband’s graduation in July and help him pack up our flat.
    Niffer, I’ll do some research for you on this song.

  • http://www.auntvanessa.blogspot.com/ Vanessa_AR

    Squirl, I probably would have read it wrong even if I’d consumed my usual 6 cups of coffee. Things just aren’t clear until around noon, then I perk up.

    Honk.

    What?

    It’s not “president”?

    Man, I have *got* to stop drinkin’ out of the toilet.

    That’s for you, Niffer. But it’s not an audio file. I hereby challenge anyone to find an audio file of this song. Not because I think I am such an expert in research, but it would just prove the theory that ANYTHING can be found on the Web.

    Holy crap, there’s a second verse I never knew about.

    I love the L
    I love the L-O
    I love the L-O-R-D J-E-S-U-S
    And I am L-I-V-I-N-G
    By His W-O-R-D
    And I will N-E-V-E-R R-E-G-R-E-T I-T

    I can’t believe you honkers got up in the middle of the night to comment. Either you are from other parts of the world or insominia rules.
    We narrate the first God Dog Carl in similar ways. Oh look Carl is feeding the baby bread and butter, but thats because he saved all the cat poop for himself. See Carl bathe and blow dry the baby. There is a knock on the door, who is it? It’s either David Letterman for Stupid Pet Tricks or Health and Welfare to take the baby and the dog away from the crazy chick that thinks Rottweilers are competent chldcare. Either way, Carl you are free from the drudgery of being a nanny..

    I grew up Roman Catholic. Thank God they never made us spell.

    LisaV, I am waiting for The OC to come on. It’s not an insomnia thing.

    Radio from hell, eh

    Squirl I just realized that I probably read it that way because my toddler prounounces the word Present “President”… as in “I goin give you a president for Christmas.”

    Oh and it was like 6 in the freaking morning when I was reading this. Why are all kids morning people? How the hell did that evolve?

  • http://www.fotolog.net/saralynnmo saralynnmo

    It’s a long-standing tradition stemming from Saturday morning cartoons, I believe.

    I hear Phantom Planet performing an acoustic version of “California.” It must be time.

    I am a Honk Ronk Conk DORK!!! I’m so glad that someone in this post explained the significance of I am a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N……man, I thought I was going to bust a brain vessel wondering what it was. I’m a new reader of the site and had seen this on another picture…I’ve been perplexed since then. I grew up Catholic, but I guess we didn’t have this song. Hmmm…I’m now wondering if I’ve been cheated in some way. Now I can join the others in saying “Honk!”

    I didn’t get a chance to say it earlier, but Heather, there was a mention of you in Thursdays Detroit Free Press. I was sitting in a Subway restaurant eating my lunch, I opened the front section and there was a quote from you, right on the inside cover!

    Andrea BT – I’m late in the game, but I know that song! My best friend as a child was a RLDS chick. I went to freaky fake Mormon camp with her a few times, and we sang this all the time. Had different lyrics though:

    Oh, you can’t get to heaven
    In a putt-putt car
    Cause a putt-putt car
    Won’t putt that far.
    I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more.

    Oh, you can’t get to Heaven
    In dirty jeans
    Cause the Lord ain’t got
    No washing machines
    I ain’t a-gonna grieve my Lord no more.

    I can’t decide if the Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints weirder than the original…

    Ryan, the only streaking experience I’ve had was right here, during a wine-induced frenzy. Yes, I streaked the Dooce comment section.
