An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

This one was taken in Autumn as well, on the same walk as that other one people thought was taken in the Spring

    anybody else wanna piss me off?

  • midwifegoddessannie: Well, I guess I now know how it feels to have vitriol spewed at me for no apparent reason. Thanks so much — I had heard about that feature of the Internets, but had never experienced it before.

  • “Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has no heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.”

    – Winston Churchill

    Just thought I’d share that bit of wisdom. 😉

  • midwifegoddessannie

    Carny.. I guess you just learned how, when you go public on the internet.. you are at the mercy of publc opinion. How ironic!

  • Sad little lonely leaf about to die…

  • Why be mean to each other Carny and Midwife? Why cant we have a hugfest instead?

    We could smile a lot more if we were hugging.

    That leaf is really depressing, but at the same time it’s not. It knows it’s on its way out, and its saying goodbye in the best way possible. =)

  • How about four lines? As in:

    I take photos
    every fucking
    day with a
    Nikon D70


    I take photos
    every day with
    a motherfucking
    Nikon D70

    I’m joking. Leave it like it is. Or change it to:
    I take photos
    everyday with
    a Nikon D70
    unlike Tiffany
    who uses a
    piece of shit

  • The thing. With the car handle.

    So. Fucking. True.

    Rock on.

  • That is a picture of a beautiful leaf. I must say that dooce has a touch when it comes to taking pictures. Everytime I see something beautiful like that and take a picture, it does not come out looking as good as it should. Dooce does have talent that other people don’t have.

    And maybe we should leave carny alone. I think that he was just jokingly trying to be helpful. I don’t think he actually expects her to change the sign. He wasn’t being insulting.

    As for me, it doesn’t matter. The way dooce has it now, sometimes I see it correctly and other times I see it like this:

    I take photos

    everyday with a
    Nikon D70

    so whatever. My computer sucks. (PCs…*shudder*)

    And how I crave that Nikon D70.

    Dooce, when you become rich and famous, could you buy all your loyal readers that camera? 😉 Just kidding.

    That leaf reminds me of me. And it is so beautiful. sigh.

    Love in Christ,
    Amber <><

  • I knew it was a subliminal political picture. I hate it when I’m right.

  • Sam,


    that is all.

  • aibee

    It’s poignant, like the paper bag scene in American Beauty.

  • This is a MORE POWER TO LETA message – me thinks she must actually be pretty cool about her life right now. What is she doing when you work on all the pics and the posts, Dooce? Is she quietly twisting the whiskers of the Chuckmeister? I think she is not given enough credit for giving us her Mama as much as she does. Please tell me you are using your Nanny time to do things for YOU and not the rest of the planet who seem to hang on your every word and “click”.
    Thrilled that you are all so well. Have a happy and snuggly winter.
    Gosh, but your fans take things seriously – one gets the urge to say CHILL OUT FANS, much like when you close the lid to your laptop!
    Love Leta in the white hat and love your new hair, looks super cool.

  • hmmm…do you think google is trying to tell you something?
    Todays ads: “Blonde Wigs”

    weird. 😉

    Great pic – and forget what google says, I likey the hair. 🙂

  • Hmm. A month before you Americans go to the polls – obviously EVERYTHING is subliminally political. Quick! Someone go out and find a blue leaf and post it!

    And dooce? We have the same genetic disorder…

    (hi aibee! :waves: )

  • That might be my favorite picture you’ve posted. It is so simple yet there’s so much meaning you can get from it.

    I’m not being a cheesy dork. I mean it.

  • Sickened

    Sheeze!!! I can’t believe the amount of gawd awful suck butt comments about how a leaf looks so freaking beautiful. I don’t think it’s Sam that needs to get a life. I think it’s all the kiss butts here that praise everything to the highest degree. I think Heather has some nice work, but not every shot posted has to be followed up with hords of such wonderfully delicious comments. Get real people. I wonder what goes through all your minds when you walk through the stores and they have high definition videos of nature shots running on the big screen t.v’s. Do you sit there and make wonderful comments all day long as the pictures run across the screen?

  • Just read the car handle posting – too funny – thought that was exclusive to my teenagers – does make one want to reach across the roof of the car and remove all hands from anywhere near to the car.

  • Brooke

    I can’t believe the amount of obscene comments posted here just because Heather posted a picture of a leaf and people like it. Gasp, it must be illegal these days to think pictures someone took is beautiful, even if it’s something simple.

    Keep taking pictures, Heather, and like John, why not stuck a message under this form that says “Comments that suck will be deleted”? Because, well, I see a lot of comments that suck.

  • Kellie

    I think the car handle thing is a female thing. Kevin James does a thing on that in his comedy show, and it’s so true. “How about now?” “What about now” “Now?” I drive my husband batty with that. What can you do?

  • Brooke

    *pictures someone took are..

    It’s 8 AM, leave me alone.

  • Sickened

    Brooke…..You should be able to take the good with the bad. It’s not the fact that people are making nice comments about the photos. It’s the fact that they are going overboard to glorify an average shot. She takes some nice photos but some of the comments are ridiculous. I mean come on for you to say something should be deleted because of the content. Have you read the information on this site??????

  • I know for a fact

    Comments do get deleted if they disagree with the general consensus. I wonder how many more we don’t see. Sure no one wants to be told they suck, but isn’t it a little hipocritical?

  • Brooke

    Who says they are going overboard?

  • Kano

    My hat goes off to sickened and “I know for a fact” but since it is Her site I guess she has the ability to determine what can stay and what can go…..But you are correct in it being very hipocritical….especially when on this site she complained about censorship. I guess there could be worse things in the day then to see a bunch of groupies posting oooohs and ahhhhs about pictures of whatever. Until then ta ta!

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
