    Heather!

    Ok, I’ll read the post in a minute, but before I do, I need to send you here:

    You HAVE to do this to Chuck! HAVE TO!

    Love,

    So who is more pathetic: the person whose life is “so fucking dull,” or the person who spends his time WATCHING someone who is “so fucking dull’?

    Baby Insurance? *sigh* Can’t believe I missed that ad. Oh well, “Gay Christian Film” will have to suffice for today.

    P.S. People suck, get used to it (Copyright is mine, I’ll send you a t-shirt).

    apparently, i am not writing enough polarizing stuff, as i never get hatemail. of course, i don’t get much mail at all, but that’s beside the point.

    thanks for the laughs. i know it’s taken you a long time to get to the point where you can laugh at this stuff.

    hey, think you’ll be at blogher again this year?

  • Muenchendi

    Ha. I want to write hate mail, just so I can get featured on your website. I wonder if I can come up with anything particularly juicy. Hmmm. Must think about that.

  • bunnybee

    What’s the point of turning on the comments if there are no hate-comments? I figured you were angling for material. Or maybe you’re plucking them out before we can see them so we’ll be surprised. How deliciously diabolical.

  • socialworkerontheedge

    That is some serious hatemail. I have had a few comments on mine, but nothing with such passion and clear disgust for you.

    Unfortunate for them as I find you amusing…thanks for the posts!

    I can’t believe you would waste a whole post talking about other people. I thought this site was supposed to be about yourself!! Lame…

  • Lyle

    I only wish my blog were popular enough for me to receive hate mail. ;)

    Keep it up, Dooce. And yeah, More Chuck!

  • http://lipjack.blogspot.com G

    Well, shit. After all that signing in, I can’t remember what the hell I was going to say, except that now I can’t get “first” out of my head.

    So here’s my little supportive flag-wave: I love the shirt, the dog pictures, your wit. Hope you make lots of money from whatever makes you money, including disking Mormonhood.

  • http://www.ceescowtown.blogspot.com fraucowtown

    Wow! Ooops, exclamation. And I used to wonder how you could stand all the stupid people sending you mail telling you how they can’t stand to read your site day after day, so now they must write you to yell at you since you’re not updating and feeding their madness every day… Phew! These wackadoos are excellent! ;)

    Chuck in a bra. You just made my day.
    That is all. ;)

    I really think you need to declare a national “Disk a Mormon Day” here on Dooce.

    Just sayin’.

  • blakspring

    I wish I got paid to sit at work and write you hatemail. Then again, I am at work and writing how much I love your blog – is that like the same thing? Anyway, these haters are just jealous.
    And speaking of jealous – hatemail is better than no mail, right? But you can always pass some of it onto me; it’s lonely here among the digital tumbleweeds.

    Double, triple eff the haters (even the not very inspired ones). People are tragic. And anyone who thinks that there can ever be enough Chuck is, well, I mean, really.

    are these people serious?

    what makes them say anything at all? do they really think they’re going to change you or the way you do things with one gay little email?! yuck.

  • Katie

    Ah, the lack of humor in the world…what to do, what to do…A TELETHON! It could be something catchy like Heather’s Cranks or something. You could raise money for Humor Augmentation Surgeries. As a bonus, you could probably offend those you’re raising money for with the telethon entertainment, AND make off with the money since such surgeries don’t exist. It’s perfect, I tell you…

    Dear Mrs. Dooce:

    I must say I am appalled at the way you are objectifying your dog. What kind of person parades their innocent, devilishly handsome dog in sultry lingerie? I suppose next you’ll feature poor Chuck in a babydoll nightie and sexy, fuzzy mules. Or a latex miniskirt and tube top with haunch-high boots. Or, or, or a corset with garter, seamed stockings, and stilettos, with a shiny pinwheel on his “lipstick.”

    That would be terribly wrong, and I wouldn’t put it past you.

    For shame.

    Certainly not rubbing one out to pictures of your dog,

    Mrs. Four-Eyes

  • Kristen

    The hate mail was a little bit on the lackluster side this time. But damn, that is one fantastic picture of Chuck. Keep them coming, my son and I love to check out the daily Chuck!

  • http://almostvegetarian.blogspot.com http://almostvegetarian.blogspot.com

    Of course, what amuses (and somewhat saddens) me to no end is that people take the time to, first, read your blog then, second, send you email telling you how much they hate your blog!

    They are clearly living in a world bereft of chocolate. And Valium, too, for that matter.

    Oh dear!

  • WORDofRYE

    I must admit, I understand where Nancy is coming from. When you first dropped the moving bomb, I was all “wait, WHAT? You’re MOVING? But you didn’t even TELL us! We did even KNOW!”

    And then I was like “holy shit, when did I turn psycho?”

  • http://tinavaziri.com/blog Tina Vaziri

    Maybe there just isn’t any new hate left after all these years of you blogging. But let’s hope not because stupidity is truly entertaining.

  • Amy

    You’re right, most of that hatemail was pretty lame and didn’t leave you much to work with. But Chuck? Saved the day, as always. Awesome photo.

  • http://kelliamanda.wordpress.com kelliamanda

    Damn, I’m having a hard time deciding which one is my favorite. Just kidding – I love your response to Mr. Robert Reading-at-Work. What an ass.

  • The Lizzy

    EFF THE HATERS.

    Seriously, Heather. Your website is one of the best things on the web. And hi, I CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH CHUCK. Never. Ever. EVAR.

    And, as someone else who has depression (woot bipolar), joking about it is one of the best things we can. Yes, mental illness is srs bznss, but having a sense of humor makes everyone feel better.

  • blaux

    you better watch your violent, angry, hatefilled language or you are going to end up getting isaiah washingtoned (read fired) from your blog.

  • Ktkat

    Oh Dooce, I do SOOOOOOOO love you and the incredibly moronic hatemail you receive! It simultaneously tickles my funny bone, and makes me want to go find these idiots and whack them up side the head with a bat.

    I just never knew how much time people would actually spend reading and posting to a blog they obviously HATE so much. And they do it repeatedly, and then KEEP READING THE BLOG! People are so funny (read sadistic, self-serving, bozos).

    I, for one, love what you write, when you write it, and IF you write it. I appreciate your BRAVERY. You stick your neck out there every single time you write something, and you run a big risk by doing so. You take the time to share yourself and your family, and you are EXTREMELY witty (hilarious, most of the time) and observant. I appreciate that you share your struggles, because many of us have gone through something similar (like… me!). It’s nice to know one can be crazy and still sane in their own way (did that make sense? Am I getting weird with the parentheticals? Is anybody still reading?)

    You’re a crazy, struggling wife and mother who is funny, tired, honest, real, AND an ex-Mormon. Who could ask for more?

    Anyway, I love your blog. People who say otherwise should stop reading, go count their beanie baby collection and shut the f**k up.

    P.S. Oh, and I ADORE the pictures of Chuck. You DO realize you have the best dog in the Universe, right? If you find a way to clone him, please send me the first copy. :)

  • http://joannab.wordpress.com joanna

    I’ve been following your site for a few weeks now, and finally had to leave a comment…

    SO FUNNY.

    I’ve become such a fan of your humor, and if you don’t keep up the photos of the dog, I may cry. Legitimate tears over here, for real.

    I’m going to add you to my blogroll if that’s cool :-)
    thanks for the laughs, i’ve needed them!!
    p.s. leta = adorable, not that you didn’t know that already. and GEORGE! is fun!

    Those hatemailers (?) lack any real creativity. Tsk tsk. Your responses on the other hand: brilliant!

  • http://www.kategilbert.com/blog Kate G.

    I’m happy to see how you let it roll off your back. Wish I could do that. Instead, I spend hours/days obsessing about stupid emails I get.

  • http://www.aflux.net Anna

    Wait, so there’s a company that PAYS people to read blogs? Can you please forward me Robert’s email address so he can put in a good word? I mean, I might as well turn what I do while PRETENDING to work into ACTUAL work, right?!

  • Jojo Dancer

    Bah to all those hate mailers!

    Personally, I am one of those who reads your blog as well. The daily pictures of Chuck are honestly sometimes the best part of the day. I don’t know how you get him to do some of the stuff he does. What a great dog! :)

    Glad that you don’t bow to the demands of those silly people. It’s obvious that you’ve got lots of fans out here!

  • http://andromeda.qc.ca Sherry

    Ah, hatemail. Proof of people with too much spare time. I miss it, I haven’t gotten any in awhile, not since I posted a picture of a big beer can I was drinking and got a snarky comment about how I was setting a horrible example for my kids if I dared to have a beer at the end of a very long day.

  • Maiken

    Oh, and Chuck does have a nice rack!

  • LaraKW

    “Random Mormon Stranger” and Peggy need to learn how to spell before they send hate mail. RMS, that would be A LOT not ALOT. And Peggy, repeat after me:
    B-A-S-I-S. I’m just sayin’. (Sorry if that was harsh. But, people, when in doubt, use a dictionary if you want to be taken seriously.)

  • http://www.birdwellproductions.com/blog Birdy

    Yea-more pics of Chuck in people wear! I love it. My five year old thanks you! (Oh and spoons on dog snouts greatly amuse 5 year old boys.)

    I envy you–Leta going to bed at 7.15–all that grown up time My two go to bed at 10ish IF they have had no nap–2 am if they had a nap. Energizer bunnies.

  • Maiken

    I heard a comment from someone yesterday who said she had her own strong compass as to how to decide what is best for her. Brava for sticking to your own as well!

  • victoria

    Dang, the haters have definitely lost their oomph. Or . . . MAYBE YOU’RE LOSING YOUR EDGE. Maybe you’re just NOT OFFENDING VERY MANY PEOPLE ANY MORE. Maybe you’re joining the ranks of all the other ever-so-cute, innocuous, noncontroversial mom bloggers. COULD YOU BE GETTING GETTING BLAND IN YOUR SUBURBAN MIDDLE AGE?

  • http://www.smallandmedium.com kelly

    fucking good for you for making a living being funny and honest and a wee tourette-ish. if only everyone had so much perspective and personality maybe i wouldn’t be so tempted to just move to the fucking woods and get away from them all.
