  • Things that are doomed to failure.

    (Woo-hoo, dooce!)

  • (to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music):

    Avril Lavigne at the top of the charts again,
    Reverend Falwell and all of his minions,
    Selfish old women in huge Cadillacs,
    These are some things that I kick in the ass…

    Cell phone yellers,
    Trite bestsellers,
    When I’m feeling mad,
    I simply extend that big finger of mine,
    And then I can feel so fine.

    Which Sav-on on Wilshire? I know of three.

  • Monday mornings



  • I am intensely confused. Perhaps because it’s Monday morning, or perhaps just because I’m dumb. But is the list you have the list of clues for ONE category, or just a list of good categories for the pyramid? Or is Dooce just lettin’ us have it both ways? Have I thought about this too much?


  • And is it regular Pyramid or celebrity week with a bunch of daytime soap actors?

  • Things that grate on your nerves.

  • Things that piss you off? Things that are useless? Things that make you want to throw someone off a cliff in a sack?
