    greenie is my little brother. Except that he’s a foot taller than I. I’m proud of him. And his undies are no one’s damn business. Unless he wants to show them to you, which he might, if you ask VERY nicely.

  • Annabellle

    Katie, thanks! You have a generous spirit.

  • Annabellle

    Can someone please explain why sometimes the posts are shut down?

  • Muffy

    Vaida, I apologize, the Jeeves comment was for Bucky, and the Slim Jims in the Confessional on Lent Fridays were for you.
    There, do you feel better?

  • http://bibaciousbabe.blogspot.com/ Vaida

    Oh Annabelle! You read it!! YAY!! You are the first person EVER to visit!! I have no idea what I’m doing. I don’t know anything about blogs or computers. It’s a boring mess! I am going to try to work on it. Unti then…YAWN for my blog.

  • http://uhohnowlook.blogspot.com Susie

    Greenthumb just checked ur blog and thats one gorgeous dog u got there.

  • http://uhohnowlook.blogspot.com Susie

    Hey, Vaida, I like your name. Is that a real name or a blog commenter name? Either way, I think it’s pretty.

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

    Thanks for explaining it a little better, Greenie. It makes more sense when you put it in those terms. I have respect for the Mormons and their beliefs, even if those beliefs seem strange to outsiders. Of course we all make jokes about it, but no one can really understand or make judgments until they learn the real facts.

    An interesting thing I heard the other day on the news – Mormon children do better in school than non-Mormons on average. I guess it just shows that they are good people with very strong ethics.

  • Muffy

    Oh, and it is now APRIL 8. I am sure you are all responsible enough individuals to get them taxes out before next friday.

    As for me, I did mine a month ago. Alas, no refund for me. Nope. Damn defaulted student loan sucks it up.
    No. I am not responsible.

  • http://harlowandtheboys.blogspot.com/ greenthumb

    Annabelle, unlike the myth of the magical Mormon underwear, the on/off state of the comments here are ruled by a totally different deity. A lot of folk might speculate as to why this phenomenon occurs here, but my best advice on this matter would be to beseech the fair and often times vengeful goddess Dooce.

    Prayers can be suplicated thru dooce@dooce.com

  • Annabellle

    Vaida, is your last name Sultenfuss?

  • http://jo.migrantroo.com Jo

    lol Susie, only when it comes to seein someones undies :)

  • http://bibaciousbabe.blogspot.com/ Vaida

    Thank you. Sadly, Vadia is NOT my real name. I wish it were. I LOVE it. If I ever have a daughter, she SHALL be named Vaida!! (said in a commanding voice) hee hee

    I am off work today so I am very late commenting.

    What an adorable picture. Glad to see Leta already knows how to grab up on the men in the house. You have taught her well. :)

  • http://bibaciousbabe.blogspot.com/ Vaida

    Actually, my LAST name is Vaida and my first name is Darth.

    HA HA HA

    Yes, I’m so gay. Who cares? It’s Friday!

    greenthumb has said it well, but I’ll offer my two cents -

    Although I’m a non-practicing Mormon, my heart is not yet entirely divorced from those 25 years of my life spent being a good Mormon girl, and while I appreciate dooce’s humorous take on being a recovering Mormon, the inaccurate direction that takes sometimes here in the comments brings out my defensive side -

    Don’t wear garments, never have, but all my close family does -

    Women’s garments don’t have slits for easy access. During “that time of the month” my sister will wear regular underwear underneath her garments. My mom just sticks with the garments. Everyone has their preference and, as far as I’m aware, there’s no particular guideline dealing specifically with it.

    One of the websites that Katie-b-b-a-w posted quoted a book “Secret Ceremonies” that from what I’ve read of it – the author was stuck in a situation with a bunch of nut jobs who weren’t typical Mormons and who gave her “doctrinal advice” that was really nothing of the kind.

    I’d be happy to answer any questions.

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

    Muffy, I just found out I owe the Feds $3000 because of a mistake my HR department made at work.

    Yeah. I’m pumped.

  • http://www.dadgonemad.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    I wear a funny undergarment, too. It has a picture of the Ninja Turtles on it.

  • http://bibaciousbabe.blogspot.com/ Vaida

    I’m not gettting a refund either. Fuckers! Why do I work 40+ hours a week again?? I think I should quit my job, fly to an island, and weave baskets for tourists to make cash for drinks.

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

    Thanks Cate. I don’t know where I read where Mormon women have slits in their underwear (so many sites out there on this topic!) but I guess it shows how there are so many misunderstandings about the religion in general. I guess in any religion there are nutcases who give everyone else a bad name.

    One question – do Mormons have secret handshakes? I read about this and thought that didn’t sound right.

  • Annabellle

    Oh Vaida, that’s what my little sisters do all the time- say SHALL- they’re 21 years old and twins and feed each other’s silliness by imitating cartoon characters like Dori from Finding Nemo- or they say things like “I SHALL have a klondike bar”. Sister 1 will say, “Shall we go to the pool?” and Sister 2 will respond, “We SHALL”. And then they meow at each other and Sister 2 imitates Dori imitating a humpback whale.

  • http://harlowandtheboys.blogspot.com/ greenthumb

    Thank you Susie!!! I heart You!

    Jo: I just may oblige…someday.

    Katie darlin: just try to remember one important thing about people in the Mormon church…they are just that. People, human, fallible…They do have a good thing going on for the most part, especially where families are concerned. I don’t know where I would be if we hadn’t joined the church.

  • http://bibaciousbabe.blogspot.com/ Vaida

    That is comical Annabelle!

  • naralius

    im catholic and my grannie used to go to a Catholic boarding school in Colombia, probably arround the 1930′s and she say they made them bath with special garments.. ive never heard this story from her, but both my mom and older sister agree. I guess Mormons are not the only ones with magical underwear.

    Annabellle, have you always had three L’s in your name and I’m just now noticing?

  • http://blog.mrtland.com mrtl

    Cate/Greenie, Are the garments the reason for specialized websites I’ve seen for “modest Mormon” prom dresses, bathing suits and the like?

  • Annabellle

    Torrie, that is so off-topic right now.

  • http://jo.migrantroo.com Jo

    Greenie, don’t think i’m gonna forget that obligation. I’ma waitin! :D I’m just desperate for the privilege of seein a gay morman’s undies. LOL

  • POKEY

    You’re welcome, Torrie.

    I was driving home from dropping off the girls at school this morning and I remembered, “Hey! It’s Chuck-Friday!” and then I thought, ‘I wonder how long she can keep this up. Is there really a picture of chuck we haven’t seen?”

    Yep. This one.

    SOOO cute.

  • http://www.iprettymuchhateeverything.blogspot.com Torrie

    POKEY- NICE!

  • http://harlowandtheboys.blogspot.com/ greenthumb

    mrtl, who know’s, but most likely yes. But for Bathing suits, it’s not about the garment so much about the modesty. You don’t wear them in the water, ever.

  • POKEY

    You, too, doll.

  • Annabellle

    Uh, Naralius, I’m pretty sure that your grandmother bathing with a kind of light robe on (which is probably what it was) was purely out of modesty- which it sounds to me like the mormon underwear thing is.

  • http://www.iprettymuchhateeverything.blogspot.com Torrie

    POKEY- You weren’t lying.

    LIKE A HORSE.

  • http://randomandodd.blogspot.com kristine

    Greenthumb!! Good Friday to you friend!!

  • Muffy

    Slightly off topic here, but not really for Dooce. Paul (I’m getting tired of calling him my man, fiancee just sounds way too uppity, and boyfriend doesnt apply) and I were in bed and talking about business ideas. His father wants to give us a little money someday to start our own (Neither of us likes the idea of working for the “man” the rest of our lives). Now I’m putting this on here, and expecting no one else to run out and do this, but here’s our idea and I’d like your feedback. Thanks dooce for the space until I get my own damn blog!

    Okay. A store dedicated specifically to bathroom related issues. No bubble bath, no shower curtains. Just stuff for your butt. Toilet seats (heated, you know it), specialty TP, bathroom reading books, etc…

    So here’s what we wantto call it, and I swear, if I see this in a strip mall in Houston, I’ll come there and SMACK YOUR BITCH UP!

    Paul’s idea, but I shot it down:
    The Bellowing Butthole

    And my suggestion:
    “Latrini’s Best Seat in the House”

    Okay, doocelings, should we just declare bankruptcy now, or do you think this could fly???

    Because remember, EVERYBODY POOPS!

    Finally, I get a witness here.

  • Annabelle

    Thanks for pointing that out, Dawners. I sometimes erase my browser history from this PC (cuz I’m at work) and so I have to retype my name in here- sometimes. I think I used to post as “annabelle” as well- which is really the same thing, obviously.
