    You do realize Marlo looks EXACTLY like Leta right?

  • http://pamsdogmobile.spaces.live.com Big Dog Mom Pam

    Wow. Frampton. On the same plane. Then twittering about you. How very cool. Oh, and yes, everyone does live in Ohio. Go Bucks!!

  • Jeanne

    That’s a fantastic story and a great read.

    And Frampton is correct, Marlo is beautiful.


  • Kristina

    Shut up!! Peter f**kin Frampton!!
    No words!

  • http://maineliving.blogspot.com Paulla

    OMG, I laughed so hard at this post. Such a great story – thanks for sharing! LOL.

    PS – Marlo IS beautiful! Peter Frampton knows his stuff. :)

    Seriously, you have the best stories. I mean, I know it’s your thing and all but jeez, you’re putting the rest of us to shame. Cheers!

  • Hissyfit

    That is the most awesome story ever! My boyfriend recommends you start every celebrity encounter by saying “My million-plus followers on Twitter would be interested in _______” because you probably have about 10X the followers they do.

  • Amanda

    Awesome story! I always enjoy reading your site because you have quite a way with words.

  • http://mommyiamhome.blogspot.com Karen

    Is Peter following you on Twitter now? Really, the dude would be a fool not to. (And that photo of Marlo should be worth a t-shirt or two if you ask me…)

    Helpful hint regarding the baby and explosive poop:
    Put TWO diapers on her. That’ll contain everything.

  • Natalie

    I’m fairly certain I just peed my pants reading this. Gah Lori Us!

  • elismsue


    Mesmerizing, beautiful and unbelievable deep…..are Marlo’s
    eyes! (referring to pic on your pic page)


  • Cran

    My husband wants to know….does Frampton fly first class?

  • http://www.ramblingsbyreba.com Rebecca (Ramblings by Reba)

    Marlo is looking SO much like Leta.

  • Meg

  • Julie

  • cattitude

    ha, that story cracked me up; I still have tears in my eyes. lol
    very cool meeting Frampton, and oh my, Marlo looks soooo much like Leta in that photo!!

    And now, for the first time EVER, I actually wish I was part of Twitterworld : )

    Omigod–that was *such* a good story!!! Marlo rocks.

  • cattitude

    …and my 16 year old son is now blasting Frampton Comes Alive from his computer because I told him this story lol

  • http://riogringa.typepad.com Rachel

    I was one of those people who said, “Peter who?” I checked his Twitter and it looks like despite all that you are Twitter friends now. You may not believe this, but once he figured out who you were, I bet he was in awe of you (and all your 1M+ followers).

  • Catherine McP

    Well that whole story is just cool..I loved that album when it came out in high school.. Ok now for the Kourtney Kardashian gig..Lordy good luck with her. I think she may be the normal of the bunch. Really I cant wait to see you on that show!

  • PJ

    When was this? Because I saw just saw him Saturday night in New Lenox, IL! I was making fun of it all along (my cousin lives there), because Peter Frampton in New LENOX? C’mon! But it was an amazing show!

  • http://wundermuffin.dreamwidth.org wundermuffin

    wow. this might just be the best blog post in the history of the world.

  • http://eviljulie.com Julie

    I finished that story, turned to my boyfriend and said “You need to hear this.” As soon as I said “Frampton” he broke into “Do you feel…” (he’s 55, I think he drank the same water as Jon.)

  • Allie

    Wait I love Frampton plugging his new cd to the Blurbodoocery crowd.

  • Andrea

    Best. Story. Ever.

  • Angela

    Awesome story Heather! And Marlo – what a doll!!!

  • http://www.wildtochild.com Amber

    Frampton vs. Dooce

    How many twitter followers does he have against your 1.2 million? Let’s just say he should have been making an ass out of himself to get his picture taken with you! :)

  • jean

    Wiping the tears away from laughing so hard. Thanks for sharing.

  • http://curlynel.blogspot.com Chanel

    Seriously? I don’t think Marlo could have more beautiful eyes. And that dimple? Shiiiit

  • Shiri

    Amazing. He made it up to you!

  • http://hobobaby.com HoboBaby

    Sweet holy crap that is AWEsome. I nearly peed my pants in anticipation of the ending of this story. I reallllly hope you mention Peter Fucking Frampton on the Bonnie Hunt Show.

  • http://confusedildo.blogspot.com Katy


    Frampton lives in my city, so I have met him a couple of times at fundraiser or two. The first time I met him, I drunkenly asked him “Do you feel like we do, Mr. Frampton”.

    I woke up the next morning and strolled the walk of shame for about a month after that….

    Anyhoodle, Frampton lives in Cincinnati and Clapton in Columbus…. Everyone is from Ohio.

  • http://thesuperbongo.blogspot.com/ THE SUPER BONGO

    One of your best posts ever!

  • Amber

    Classic!! Looooooove Frampton!!

  • http://whenoctoberfalls.ws Autumn

    Oh great post. This was a hilarious entry.

  • http://www.areyoubreathing.com/ Wendy

    I saw that tweet. I loved that album, but not as much as Jon. When I saw the tweet I told my friend @dooce is sitting behind Peter Frampton on an airplane. She said, “obviously Peter Frampton isn’t that famous because I don’t know who he is.” But she knows who you are and she doesn’t even have kids. Ironic isn’t it?

    BTW (by the way) funny post.

  • http://la-fleur-balkanique.blogspot.com Balkan Girl, now Down Under


    And yay!

    I’m just…trying to get my head around the awesome notion of Jon doing the air guitar/devil horns schtick before The Framp. Did he just spontaneously burst into it like they do in musicals and shit? Did he preface it with a caveat of sorts?

    And, most importantly, how did it all look and what was Frampton’s reaction as it all panned out? :D

    …And he tweeted you guys (!), coooooooool.

    (Really does NOT get any cooler than that.)

    I’m reminded of The Simpsons eppie where Homer becomes Hullabalooza’s main freak (heh), and we have the following awesome Frampton moments:

    Tech guy: Aw, man. There goes Peter Frampton’s big finale. He’s gonna be pissed off.
    Frampton: You’re damn RIGHT I’m going to be pissed off; I bought that pig at Pink Floyd’s yard sale!

    …And then later he does his “Do you feel like we do, Springfield…YEAH!” & keeps on ‘do-you-feel’-ing as he frantically stamps the pedal that’s supposed to activate the pig.


    Said episode also has the golden quote that, although unrelated to Frampton, made me think of you:

    Bart: What religion are you?
    Homer: You know, the one with all the well-meaning rules that don’t work out in real life. Uh…Christianity.


    Ain’t that the truth. ;)

    I love reading your stuff, keeps me laughing. I first saw you on Oprah which is like a year late here in South Africa. I’m loving you, you’re one funny mama

  • Cathy

    Oh my God, I was laughing so hard! I had to read it to my husband, trying not to cackle too loud and wake up my babies, while I wiped my tears! Way to go! We soooo love your way, Dooce!

  • http://www.lorihudson.typepad.com Lori Hudson

    Haven’t laughed this much since Saturday. Thanks Dooce.

  • http://www.myhormonesmademe.com MyHormonesMadeMeDoIt

    Embarrassed to say thank God you decided to blog about this because all I could think when I saw your tweets was who? I know lame.

  • http://daddyscratches.com Daddy Scratches

    After having my own recent “make yourself look like a douchebag in front of a rock star” moment, I can say that I feel your pain.

    P.S.: Did Jon accompany his air-guitar session with a squawk-box impression? Because that really would have made the moment complete.

  • http://laurenfromtexas.com Lauren From Texas

    HOLY CRAP. RE: Marlo, since I don’t know who Peter Frampton is. Is he that guy who sang with the Monkees?

  • http://www.fromsingletomarried.com Tabitha (From Single to Married)

    Love that story! And so glad he ended up being a decent guy after the “not now thanks” comment on the plane! Besides, how could he not think Marlo is beautiful?

  • Tricia

    Yet another wonderful example of why I come to your site multiple times per day… I love your writing!

    Also, Marlo has the most beautiful deep blue eyes I’ve ever seen… I wonder if they’ll stay that way.

  • ~Michelle~

    No freakin’ joke, guess what song is on the radio as I read this blog post?

    Yep, “Baby, I love your way”

  • http://somuchsoundandfury.blogspot.com Rachael W


    And for the record, I’m 23 and I know who Peter Frampton is. My dad thinks his live album is the best live album ever recorded, simply because of the “talking” guitar.

  • Colleen

    That’s one of the best celebrity encounters I’ve ever heard! And clearly, now it’s official that Marlo is gorgeous.
