Thank you, Chickenflicken. Sorry, Leta, that now you look more like me. Your hair, it will finally make sense 20 years from now, no sooner.

Because they needed something else in common
Would you like to supersize that?
Newsletter: Month Forty-five
my kid had colic back when the Unabomber was in the news. She was called the Unababy, little domestic terrorist that she was.
I know you have a good heart. And I didn’t say you were a gargoyle, I said some think you are turning into one.
You know like the scary mean-looking statues that guard buildings.
I think there are lots of reasons why people say mean things. Sometimes grown ups know better and sometimes they don’t, sometimes people are lost in bitterness or pain or jealousy or exhaustion.
“Trolls say mean things to make themselves feel better.”
This is exactly why saying mean things back is no good.
Because if saying mean things back makes us feel better, then there is something wrong.
Attack Baby *is* an excellent name. Think it’s too late to change my own name? ‘Cause that would really rock. I could put it on my business cards at work, and only a few people would be surprised.
Amanda B: Is it because of the monkey truce?
Evidently Katie showed up a couple of months ago to kiss Heather’s ass & call people names. I think you’re right about the anger issue.
Someone here was complaining about GW bumping Ellen off the tube. GW just said, “I’m starting to blow on, here…” That’s pretty much worth the Ellen-bumping.
Wow, it’s getting way to serious in here.
Well, Bucky I’ve always loved you- but yes, the monkey truce did add a little more spark to my fire.
Bucky, its probably best to let sleeping monkeys lie.
Monkey’s soul was restless yesterday and it was all I could do to keep him from slinging shit from the great beyond …
Didn’t you know???? Katie has appointed herself policewoman of this site.
Goooder, Dude I too am hung over. Too much margarita and one surreal evening.
Bucky, I’m speachless…so gross but intrigin.
Spurious Plum: what you need is a public proxy server. go to http://www.publicproxyservers.com (duh) and write down a few of the proxies that are listed there. Then change the proxy settings on your work browser until you find one that works.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Uh…so I hear.
HONKITY HONKITY HONK.
Bethy-Mae: which one? I’ve said so many gross things today I can’t keep track.
Clairvoyant: I, too, feel the monkey’s presence often. Sometimes when I’m alone, I can almost hear the monkey whispering in my ear, with his leathery monkey lips, “Stroooooke me, Bucky, and feeeeeeed me bananas.”
I guess a monkey seance is a *really* bad idea.
Anybody have ideas to get rid of a ghost or two?
Funny, Leta doesn’t look aggressive in this picture. Then again, we can’t see her hands, and she very well may have your wallet.
You did say that Chuck isn’t much of a guard dog, so what’s so bad about attack baby? (save the screaming)
Katie can be my policeman any day.
As long as she brings her baton.
The “Ellen-bumping” ??????
Aaaaah, errrrrr, ummmmmm…
No, I can’t think of anything *funny* about that, can YOU?
Yikes, you got ghosts, giggles?
Just testing you, BFE. You’ve still got it, even when you’re sick.
Before everything settles down again, could someone please call me a Cracker?
And at least the Prez didn’t pre-empt General Hospital like usually happens. I swear, he *knows* and does it just to torture my ass.
He sits up in the White House, laughing an evil laugh, and says things to Karl Rove like “Now, how can we fuck with Bucky today?”
And then Rove rubs his hands together like a mad scientist and says “You know General Hospital is her weak spot. Press conference?”
Then the Prez slaps Rove on the back and they go watch some NBC soap.
That’s how I’m pretty sure this goes down.
“goes down”? In the oval office? No, attackbaby, you’re thinking of that other guy…
Why the hate on KBBAW? She’s pooperific and that’s good enough for me.
laughing my ass off.
Jeez, DICKHEAD is a bit harsh. Sounds to me as though the guy was trying to be funny and make light of the fact that the kid was acting up.
But what do I know – I’m just a hick and not all that hep.
Leta is The. Most. Photogenic. Human Being. Ever.
[emphasis on "The Most Photogenic Human Being Ever"]
[also emphasis on Leta, because she is way cute]
I sorta thought the attack baby comment was funny. Not having a baby makes me ignorant of these things potentially though.
Ryan, I was just checking Leta out again myself. I just love her little bow-like mouth. And that nose! Oh, and her eyes. And those little caterpillar eyebrows.
Well, I do think we discussed the Lewinsky Humidor Effect last night…
And while we’re not talking about it, I wonder how often they change the Prez’s chair in the Oval Office. Do they get each Prez a new one, so he doesn’t have to sit in his predecessor’s presidential fart ghosts, or is there one chair full of historical flatulence that “passes” from one Prez to the next?
Yes, I carry a baton and I am proud of it.
I don’t know why there is all the hate for me. I give love to all the Doocelings in here. Apparently, these “nobodies” that are popping up are the ones that have said nasty things and have gotten called out on it. I feel that most of ya’all feel my love, though.
You must be a Jolly Rancher.
Amanda B., you a cracker.
Gee, Bucky. Put that on the syllabus for CanAmy to report back to the class on. I am learning so much here at dooce U.
Manda b, you’s a damn cracker.
Kalki: From what is going on in my place I’m really wondering if it’s true.
Of course, I’m still trying to come up with logical reasons for the strange things going on.
I only asked for ideas, though, to change the subject.
But, if anyone does have any ideas on how to get rid of ghosts, please help!
I’m with everyone else about the attack baby comment. It was funny. But I’ll chack it up to the protective frog parent instinct.
Dawners- thank you, I feel better now.
Jesco! Thankyou that means a lot coming from you.
That “Medium” lady could go into the Oval Office and translate the voices(?) of the fart ghosts…
Point taken, Unknown. And I am glad to hear you don’t think I look like a gargoyle. I just act like one. I guard the Dooce building. JUST JOKING. Anyway, I totally agree that saying things back is probably not the best route for getting rid of trolls. Two wrongs don’t make a right, right? If I say anything to trolls in the future, it will be more of a constructive criticism. Capiche? I don’t want all the hate! It is making my ass clench up and I am getting constipated. And I never get constipated.
It’s only funny to the parent if the parent says it. For example, I can call my son “Monster Boy” or, more usual, “Destructo Boy”. But if someone else does it, no no no no no.
It’s the same thing as “only I can beat up my little brother/sister/monkey”.
Giggles, I don’t have any ideas, but I wanted to prolong the ghost conversation b/c I prefer ghosts to trolls. I really believe there is a rational explanation, but I don’t know what it might be!
i’m bored. anyone wanna smoke some crack with me?
I have pooped five times in the last 24 hours.
Mmmmm…. Wheat Thins.
I think “attack baby” is pretty funny. And aren’t all babies are attack babies sometimes? If they could be reliably trained to repel Jehovah’s Witness-ers (?) and telemarketers, I’d get pregnant TOMORROW.
Ooh, ghosts. I likey the ghost topic. Are they scary ghosts, or Casper-type ghosts?
