Through the looking glass

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, with all my cats I am GREATEFUL if I dont wake up with anything hot or bubbling on my pillow, thanks anyways.

  • Muffy

    PLEASE, No talk of Peeps! I’m down to my last three boxes! And were months away from another Peep-able holiday!

    However, Little Debbie Cosmic Brownie discussions are Okay. I can still get them at the dollar store.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Not even bubblin’ seamonkeys?

    ‘Cause who doesn’t like to wash down that bedtime snack with a heapin’ mugful o’ seamonkeys?

  • LeafGirl77

    Peeps?? please educate

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, well I dont have to explain to a lady of high refinement like yourself the value of a good gulp of fresh seamonkeys. Protein and all that. But I still dont want them doing the mambo all over my pillow. Or my eye….

  • Muffy

    NO PEEPS DISCUSSIONS, for the love of Pete! I may die. Throw peeps on my casket.

  • suburban misfit

    Aw, I just read today’s entry. It brought tears to my eyes.

    You have such a way with words, Heather. It’s truly a gift.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Muffy, did you know in the kids toy department, or places like toys r us you can get peep making machines? They have them with like the ezbake ovens, the chocolate factories, the gummi makers, you can totally make your own fresh peeps at home.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    LeafGirl, peeps:

    Jess…will seamonkeys in the eye affect one’s sight? If so, then someone needs to add that to the “you’ll go blind!” list.

    Things that make you go blind (and as a four-eyes, I will refrain from editorial comment):

    Seamonkeys in the eye
    Naked pictures of Ernest Borgnine

    …anyone care to add to the list?

  • LeafGirl77

    I think I get the sea monkey part…. peeps?

    I’m just an innocent from Canada…please educate

  • Susannah

    Jessica Rabbit—seriously? Make your own peeps? Thank you, that’s fabulous, I know what I’m getting my sister for her birthday. You absolutely are my hero of the day.

  • Dazed & Confuzed

    Great post – poor Chuckles. I think we all did the “feed everything to the dog” trick when we were younger. Now that I’m considerably older, a dog would have to pry a goldfish cracker out of my cold, dead fingers before I’d give it up.

  • Muffy

    Things to make you go blind:
    A rusty spike through the eye.
    A rusty spike through each eye.

    Oh, and because I was catching up on old posts when everyone was commenting the day Heather brought up Grosser than gross…
    What’s grosser than gross?
    Jumping off the empire state building and getting your eyelid caught on a rusty nail.

  • Lou

    Sexy hair!

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, Seamonkeys in the eye sting, seamonkeys in your hair make it shiny. At least that is what he keeps telling me.

    Also things that make you go blind, getting poked in the eye. No really, it can. My mom always said, dont do this, dont do that, you might get poked in the eye and go blind. There are kids in africa that get poked in the eye and go blind! Do you want to be that kid??

    Or was it starving kids in africa eat your beets? Hmmmmmmm

  • Jo

    comments are back??!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    I always wondered why I couldn’t just send ‘em the damn beets.

    I think beets make you go blind. Or at least, they make you wish your tastebuds would fall off.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Susannah, yep they really have them. My boys wanted to get one for their dad cause he loves peeps so much. They have cotten candy machines too, and stuff to make at home ice cream like soft serve DQ ice cream. So much stuff in the toy store rocks…

  • ash

    very cool, i love pictures like these.


  • Robin

    I feel exactly the same way about the lavender and chamomile lotion. It helps me keep my daughter a baby in my mind.

  • southern fried girl

    Wow, comments are back. What a fantastic picture of you too. :)

  • lawbrat

    what will make you go blind:
    being a wanker
    being intolarant of others views
    endless season of snow

  • Jo

    OMG yay! Comments are back and Heather’s looking STUNNING! :)

  • Alicia

    OOOohhhh! It’s baaaaccckk! I’m lovin it.

    I’d have to say: you’re absolutely gorgeous, Heather!

  • Susie

  • RazDreams

    things that make me go blind:

    1) bad punctuation
    3) flavor flav and brigitte nielsen

  • Tomomix

    great one. love-it!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Lawbrat, you think that nasty frozen moneyshot from the sky is gone for the year now? I have to say that April snowstorms get me pissin’ mad.

  • Marcia

    Lovely photo

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, my parents had a huge garden so for several months of the year we all pee’d red from all the beets.

    Now as an adult, I would be very concerned if I pee’d red half the year. But according to my guy, drink enough grape soda and your poop will turn bright green.

  • Lala

    top ten, whoohoo.
    really like the hair!

  • Muffy

    Oh, and I know we’re not supposed to discuss politics, but did anyone else see the front page of the New York Post today with G.W. HOLDING HANDS with the Saudi guy? I just know I’m gonna lose sleep over that.

    Heather B. Armstrong for President, 2008!

  • Enigmatic

    Your hair is amazing!

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Jess, really? Grape soda=green poop?

    And all this time I blamed it on the alien anal probes.

  • abbey

    pretty hair!

  • JessicaRabbit

    Bucky, he swears by it. Its science.


  • leandra

    wavy and natural, looks great. :)

  • Muffy

    No Bucky, that’s from when Gumby gave you a Dirty Sanchez!

  • Wicked H

    Love the new do, Dooce.

    Hope you 2 enjoyed the evening alone; besides the corn dog stick incident.

  • Christine

    It’s amazing what can remind us of our inner strength and will to live, isn’t it? Your story about the scent was lovely. :)

    For me, the reminder is a visual thing. When I had a breakdown in 1991 and spent a month as an inpatient, part of my healing involved art therapy. One week I made dozens of small, intricately designed polymer clay beads and strung them into a long necklace. During the years after my breakdown, I learned a lot about myself and the beautiful things about being alive. I also went on to earn 3 advanced degrees; one from a very prominent school. I carried those beads with me every time I needed to be reminded to keep moving ahead with my life and not to become afraid — nothing would ever be as hard as those days in the past.

    Just a few moments ago, I had a student come to my office for a conference. She noticed the colorful string of beads hanging over the framed edge of one of my diplomas, and she really admired them.

    I told her they are one of my most valued treasures — even more than the diplomas. And they really are. :)

  • dänika

    love your hair!

    and the flower. :)

  • Spurious Plum

    Three things:

    1.) Smell has been proven to be the strongest of the five senses at evoking memories.

    2.) Your hair is magnificent and is making me wild with jealousy.

    3.) Hooray, comments!

    Thanks, Heather.

  • EricaL

    I just have to say that what Jon did for you that fateful day in the bathtub is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard in my life.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Muffy, Gumby’s been talkin’ hasn’t he? He _promised_ it was just between us… *sob*

    Jess – I like to change the word “Science” to “Hatpins.” Then I can sing “She blinded me…with HATPINS!”

  • lawbrat

    Your hair looks awesome!!

  • LeafGirl77

    Now Raz, cracked me up. on the other hand was sick sick sick. Who are these people?

    Then again, being accepting of others…at least they make each other happy, right?

  • Melissa

    Hi Heather,
    It is great fun checking in on your site almost daily! You bring some good chuckles and insight to many of my days.

  • JessicaRabbit

    Hatpins? Pfffft, how bout Nipples.

    She blinded me with nipples. NIPPLES!!

  • Amyloo
