Bring it on, Spring

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Jessica –
    That lightning bolt was meant for you, I think.
    Thou shalt do kegels with Geritol.

  • wealhtheow

    Hoping Leta is doing well–you’ve all been in my thoughts. Chuck too.

  • mrtl

    I get it. Leta’s is a cheeseburger, and yours is a bagel. Makes sense to me!

  • Katrina

    Gahgeous, absolutely gahgeous dahling.

    Hoping to hear good news about Leta.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, who said I dont already do them? hmmm??

    And fling all the bolts you need, Im dodging and dipping and diving and ducking and dodging like a MoFo over here.

  • Amanda

    i heard peepers yesterday for the first time this year! yay spring :)

  • JessicaRabbit

    Wait, If I am a Mo then does being a MoFo just make me a chronic masturbator?

  • nibbler

    i hope things are well with Leta.
    beautiful photo. hust what i needed to brighten up a slightly overcast morning. :)

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    I’m told that chronic often leads to masturbation, often with a handful of french fries.

    Mmmmmmm, greeeeeasy!

  • Circus Kelli

    Love the photo, Dooce! I hope all went well yesterday.

    Spring! Spring! Spring!

    Maybe if we all think really good thoughts and clap our hands, Spring will stay and get even warmer!

    Come on now, we can do it!

    Spring! Spring! Spring!

  • Ern

    Awww, bucky!

    Pretty impressive that Heather can do that mid-stream stop POST-CHILD BIRTH! I’ve got some exercising to do!

  • Muffy

    So did Chuck do a yoga stance on that lovely flower after you took the pic?

    PS: Dooce, just so you know, not only have you and your site wasted countless work hours of mine, NOW YOU’VE INVADED MY DREAMS! I’m serious! Last night I dreamed I met you and the fam (I even had treats for Chuck) as you came to a friends house for dinner. Just so you know, you had the septic tank poopy red hair thing going on. JUST SO YOU KNOW! So stay OUT of the dye aisle at “the” Costco. You’ve been warned!

  • JessicaRabbit

    I don’t even know what Geritol is I am so young and such a nice girl.

    I do however know what kegels are, and I know they arent just good for helping with labor, heh.

  • dänika

    How lovely! I can’t wait for flowers to start blooming here…the high yesterday was 37F, and I was wearing sandals and no jacket — so ready for spring!

  • coskel

    well, amy, you may want to watch something about waterfowl – its called Time To Talk About Opera, and I don’t know the full list of PBS stations that carry it, all I know is that Flint is one of them. It will be on at least 4 times that I know of. I just want a well-written bio so I don’t sound like DORK, although I’m happy to be one here at dooce.

  • Anita

    I hope the MRI went well.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Hey, bagels, kegels…
    Could one use a stale bagel for kegels?

    Makes its own cream cheese!

  • MichaelTLH

    Gorgeous! This one goes out to all the baby mamas, right?

    Sorry. That Baby Mama song by Fantasia just came on the radio and I think I’m going to hear it in my head. All. Day. Long.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, I am so there! I just gotta get my walker dusted off.

  • The Rock

    Nice photo Heather!

  • JessicaRabbit

    My candles smell like candy corn.

  • TulsaOkie

    B E A U T I F U L!!! Awesome picture Dooce!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Oh, you had to go and bring the walker into this, did you?
    Hands off my Geritol, grasshopper.

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    “Feed me, Seymour!”

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    My candy corn smells like candles.

  • Jennifer in Kansas City

    Yes, more big group hugs from the Midwest, and I’m hoping that the gorgeous tulip picture is an indication that your spirits are good in the House of Dooce, as we all await good news about Leta.
    On a completely unrelated note, if you quit your job, can you then blog about all the stories you DIDN’T tell while employed, because you were wise and listened to Heather B. Armstrong & didn’t wanna get dooced? I’m thinking that somehow, someway, it can still bite ya in the arse.

  • CanadianAmy

    hey! I get Michigan PBS here in Canada! Its one of my HDTV channels! So what’s the show?

  • Anthony

    Best of luck.

  • CanadianAmy

    Please tell me it is something other than a special on waterfowl or national parks.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Leta has so many Internet “aunts” and “uncles” who adore her! Group hug, you guys.

    (Nilbo…I’m watchin’ you)

  • Graygirl

    I’ve been wondering about mows too, wrote him and no response either. Tried Tifnee’s site and registered and all….still nothing. Can’t figure it all out…guess I’m challenged???

  • Nilbo

    What a coincidence ….

  • RyanH

    ’tis Spring, and macro-shots of flowers are in style yet again.

    Glad to hear of Leta’s report!

  • Bunnykins

    This place is really really nice. So nice nice nice nice. Oh what a nice place this is. This nice place makes me feel nice all day. Where is uppercase god?

  • Susie

    mouse and family appear to be taking a break from blogging. don’t know why; hope it’s for happy reasons.

  • Clearly

    I love Tulips, my house is full of them!
    I hope we actually see Spring in the UK this year, I’m sick of the rain!

    Dooce, I hope all went well with Leta yesterday – I was thinking about you all and sending good vibes.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, guidelines? Oh crap, I know that means trouble and I am terrible about following rules…

    instructions however, I am better with.

  • Melanie S.

    I love that picture. We always take our kids to the Arboretum here in Dallas and they have the most beutiful flowers I’ve ever seen.

  • Biggest Apple

    Stubborn babies = Sassy independent kick ass big people. Rough now at times but pure joy later on ;)

  • Nilbo

    You do whatever you want in your lap, as long as I get to lick the rolling pin when you’re done …

    As for decorum in a waiting room … pfft … these are people who, on a daily basis, remove Gumby from peoples’ nether regions … decorum is unnecessary …

  • coskel

    NOT a good writer .. see?

  • giggles

    Heather – I truly hope everything went okay yesterday. I know it’s stressful for you and Jon to see little Miss Leta in this situation – but in the long run, when she’s been given the clean bill of health we know she’ll be given, you’ll feel so much better knowing all is well. You all were in my (and I’m sure many others) prayers.

    Susie – I’ll go with you to get some coffees and cappuccinos for everyone waiting. I hope they keep the musack down to a minimum while we wait. :-)

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Coskel, forgive my senility, but is the bio about you or about the host?

    And why is there a green arm sticking out of my ass?

  • jen

    i like yer flower.

    70′s is like the highest i’ve ever posted…today is going to be a mighty fine day.

  • coskel

    me, the host has to have something to go off of so that he can ask me questions. of course the fact that they waited until THE NIGHT BEFORE to ask for it tells me a lot: im gonna be flyin’ blind on this.

    And hey, you can see it, cause Flint’s PBS station is the only one in Michigan that will carry it. :)

  • bethy-mae

    Yes! spring has sprung!

    I hope Leta is doing alright today.

    Susie, I take cream in my nasty coffee.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Jessica – I can easily turn the guidelines into instructions.
    See me after class.

    Coskel – what show, and when’s it on?

  • Stacy

    Thinking of Leta last night…

    Also looking at the tulips this morning (refuse to use pronouns in written communications today) as they lean towards the rising sun and thinking, “Dude… I FEEL your pain.”

    Damn. That was a pronoun.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Henryk, I don’t think all men suck. Just the vast majority of them. My boyfriend doesn’t suck. I think you are quite un-sucky, too.

  • CanadianAmy

    Kumbaya, my bucky, Kumbaya.
