    spoonie, come to my crack house.

    bucky, there’s a pic of a kitty tongue at suburbanmisfit’s house. That’ll help you feel better.

  • GMM

    I love Leta pictures. Keep em comin’!

    I’m guessin’ the guy’s expression and body language probably contributed to the overall impression. You know, the dickhead thing.

    Spoonie: I’ll smoke your crack any day, butt spelunker.

    I don’t like discord. The negativity in here was a bit much.

    I’ll keep asking for advice on ghosts – but another time.

    So, do you all think Demi is pregnant but just anxious to confirm until the 2nd trimester?

    (I know, it’s a lame change of topic, but it’s that or ghost stuff from me right now. I’m a bit overtaxed)

    DOOCE!!!! Congrats on the awardsss!!!!

    Of course, of course. Of course you got’em. Of course I congratulate you. Of course I use 4 exclamation points!!!!

    I cannot believe HOW big she is. She looks way more like a toddler than a baby these days.

  • http://www.spacesuitcase.com SpaceCase

    Dooce, de-lurking to say congrats on the awards. Love your site, love your photos. Any positive attention is well-deserved!

    I think Demi is pregnant.

  • AndreaBT

    Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, is worth pre-empting Ellen for. Sometimes that is the only fun part of my day (aside from catching up on the dirt here, that is).

    Dance, Ellen, dance!

    KBWAW: If the stuff going on in my house is the work of ghosts, so far I’d have to attest that they’re fairly “Casper-esqe”.

    Things happening: Steroes coming on in the middle of the night, lights coming back on (not regular lights but pull chain), items disappearing, but the freakist is the tv changing channels by itself or the program guide surfing all the time on it’s own.

    Any ideas?

  • AndreaBT

    And, umm…did I smell a troll?

    Or was that a presidential fart blowing through here?

  • Unknown

    I am unknown here, my name is Nicole.

    I am a co-worker and sorta friend of Girl.A who I’ve known for 6 years and who introduced the site to me last November. I read every day and I do not comment. I don’t have a blog.

    For the record, over the past few weeks Katie has not seemed to change what she’s doing. Sometimes, Katie, with all due respect you go too far. When I get worried about or upset with a friend I tell them. I am not being mean.

    Just now I was lumped in with trolls. Which I am not. And I did not show any hate for Katie. I do not hate Katie or anyone.

    And thank you “Hey, Unknown” but no thank you. I do not go for name calling or revenge. Please no one else post comments and reference me if you are going to be mean. I do not condone it. I do not agree.

    I am just trying to be fair and logical about this. My friend just told me when she left for home that she is never coming back to dooce and that made me feel sad.

    “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.

  • AndreaBT

    Jeez, either I get on only at dead times, or everyone runs as soon as I make an appearance.

    Or both.

  • http://www.dooce.com giggles

    Torrie: Me too. Did you see Ashton on David Letterman? He didn’t actually say flat out that she was wasn’t – it’s all about the spin.

  • http://uhohnowlook.blogspot.com Susie

    No trolls. A little crack, some ass-wipe talk, Presidential ghost farts, you know, the usual…

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki

    Ryan Harne, I just checked out your website and I think I heart you.

    That is all.

  • AndreaBT

    Crud, and now that I’m here, the baby wakes up, and I’m gone again.

    Bye til later

    ATTACK, BABY! And bring me some crack. Butt crack.

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/burdanilex Burdanilex

    While I agree that Dollys comment was uncalled for and down right rude I do agree with Unknown and Hey, unknown. People seem to get called ass troll just for disagreeing with either Heather or the commenters.

    Today I think that heather perhaps over reacted with that guy. He was probably trying to be funny. I didn’t post that comment because I figured I’d be called an asstroll.

    I used to really enjoy reading the comments but now not as much. People seem to be power tripping over calling others ass trolls.

  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    Spoonleg – I have a question. If you get pregnant while smokin’ crack, is the baby a ‘crackccident’?

    And yeah, I’ll smoke some rock witcha.

  • http://www.dooce.com giggles

    Thanks Torrie!

    Much needed comic relief.

    Almost time for me to go home here – ya’ll take care!

  • http://www.redsaid.net redsaid

    It’s a GIR!!!!

    (That photo, by the way, is the one you should include in the Album of Humiliation… you know? That album which you’re going to show to all her teenage suitors (or the suitors she’ll have when she’s finally allowed to date at 45, if Jon has anything to do with it).

  • Nicole

    I didn’t see your last post before I wrote mine, though it was more to really just say I am not a troll.

    Thank you and have a good night. I gotta go home to my kid and give her a big hug.

  • http://eli-mae.blogspot.com/ bethy-mae

    Ya know, the more I look at that picture the more I’m digging on the color combo. Little Leta fashion diva.

    Bucky, I can just see that John Edwards guy, “Did someone in this room fart yesterday?” or “I’m getting eggs, does that ring a bell?”

    we can reach our destination

  • User Known

    Very well said Unknown about Katie, I didn’t think she’d ever see the light of day it was so far us Heather’s ass.

    Katie, you don’t allow anon comments on your site, Heather does–apparently she can take it far more than you think she can, and well you can’t.

    I’ve found that the ones who are the bullies deep down are the most scared of all. The bigger they are the harder they fall, we all know about bullies. Katie you are one, at least on here, I doubt in real life you’re as ballsy.

    Let people say want they want about Heather on her site. You deal with your own life, if you can have one being on here all day long. This goes for everyone—kept your hating to yourself. You actually make the hate grow with your comments. You know who you should focus on, nuts who go looking up emails of people who send Heather emails and then start stalking them…those are some real nuts ya’ll.

    since when is it wrong for babies to act like babies? why do people expect children to act like well mannered grown ups? most grown ups don’t act like well mannered grown ups. i do, of course, but then i have children and when you have children all rights to behaving insanely go to them. it’s unfair, but there it is.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/torrie Torrie

    I am going to go make dinner. I can’t take all of this negativity.

    Where’s Bucky and her monkey when you need them?

  • AndreaBT

    back for a sec (baby on lap), and speaking of soaps…does it bug anyone else when an actor leaves a soap for a period of years, then returns…as a different character?? Days has done that at least twice, and boy is it confusing to people like me who only get a chance to watch it sporadically…

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Sorry about your friend, Unknown. I would hope that she will trust that I won’t call out the ass trolls anymore. I guess it is only extending the hate to call them out. For the record, I don’t think you are a troll – just a concerned Dooce fan. I appreciate your kind words and understanding, and I will stand up for you if anyone calls you a troll! :-) But I won’t be mean!

    Once again, I hope your friend comes back to Dooce.com – it is not Heather that is saying the troll comments nor is she calling anyone ass trolls. I can promise I won’t dole out the daily ass troll comment, although I can’t promise trolls won’t lurk around here. I hope your friend gives it a second chance, because everyone knows that this is a great website with a lot of fun people!!!

    I love all you Dooceketeers! Can we PLEASE talk about poop now? NO MORE ASS TROLL TALK JUST POOPY TALK!!! I PROMISE I WILL STICK TO THE STICKY TOPIC OF POO!

  • http://bucky4eyes.blogspot.com Bucky Four-Eyes

    LMAO Bethy-Mae.

    I swear you people will get me laughin’ so hard I puke again.

  • Rissa

    I’ll bet there are way more lurkers than commenters because they don’t want to get slammed for a differing opinion. There have to be to have 40,000 hits & only hundreds of comments, often many from the same dozen or so people. Hey, Katie, give the troll thing a rest please. You’re allowed an opinion & so is everyone else. Thanks. See how polite that was? It IS National Courtesy Day, you know.

  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    Bethy-mae – well you know, brown with yellow and blue stripes is the new black.

  • http://www.dooce.com/archives/daily_photo/02_22_2005.html Dawners

    Happy to oblige, Amanda B.

  • http://www.pissybritches.blogspot.com Pissy Britches

    Love that pick Dooce. Also, CONGRAT’S on the BLOGGIE AWARDS. That is freakin awesome!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Actually I do allow anonymous posts on my site. Visit it and you will find out. There are plenty of anonymous posts.

    And I am ballsy in real life. I stick up for my beliefs and my friends. End of story.

    And please refrain from calling us nuts. I don’t think that was called for.

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki

    Blue stripes? Plum, I can see you’ve already been smoking the crack. Those stripes are white, girl!

    (Aren’t they?)

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki

    There’s no need to avoid the Dooce site just because of comments. Just don’t read them – heck, it took me a couple of days to even realize they were here! (But golly I’m glad I did!)

  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    I though they were light blue to match the hat…But my crack-addled mind could be fooling with me. I suppose that’d explain why everyone looks like seamonsters right now, too.

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/torrie Torrie


  • Kendra at the Lakehead

    I have to agree with the seamonster comment…there ain’t no blue in that picture…not even light blue.

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Kalki, please save me! Can you talk about poop with me please? I have started down the path of not calling people ass trolls and they keep yelling at me. Let’s talk about poop!

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki

    You mean the hat with the white letters? :)

    I, like Bucky, have a bit of the flu. I’d trust crack-induced colors over flu-induced ones anyday. Blue it is!!

  • http://www.snickrsnack.blogspot.com Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Thanks Torrie!

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki

    Wait. Heck, I got Kendra backing me up now. White it is!

  • http://www.lineweaver.org/klog kalki



  • http://spuriousplum.blogspot.com/ Spurious Plum

    Kendra, since you live at the lakehead, see any lakemonsters wearing big brown hats? Squint, and believe!

    C’mon, light blue anyone?

    See you later alligator.
