    Have a great day!

    Speaking of eggnog, try this delicious “Southern Eggnog” (handle). It never fails to light up a room,

    My husband and I got a D70 because of you. Our lives are forever changed. *sniff* It’s a beautiful thing 😉

    Lulu: I’m not sure George would want to be called a “cupcake,” even though you meant it in an endearing way. From what he left in the Armstrong’s lavatory the other day, he don’t sound like no cupcake to me.

    I hear cupcakes go pretty good with egg nog lattes. Does the Blue Plate have cupcakes, too, Dooce?

    Very animated shot…for me it captures the feel of being in a cafe.

    Only two bucks for an Egg Nog Latte? I need to get out of NJ.

    Egg Nog Lattes and George… perfect together.

    Looks like ol’ George is about to puke from the thought of eggnog latte. . .I know the thought makes me kinda queasy!

    Jesus tapdancin’ Christ, people, why do you wanna go messin’ with a perfectly good cup of black coffee?

    George, do you make this many people’s nipples hard in real life?

    That place is filthy! George, pick up the ShopVac and get rid of some of that clutter.

  • Katie

    2004/12/16 at 5:42 am

    Yeah, Colleen (28), like you said. Starbucks is what, $6? But I wanted to note that GEORGE, like scrumptious bearded Jon, is scrumptiously bearded. What’s up with the Utah men and their fine facial hair? Is this ANOTHER reason to get out of New York? (I think I’m on metrosexual overload round here…)

    You need t-shirts that just say “GEORGE!” and then we could recognize each other in public. Only we would know what it means. It could be like our version of garments.
    T-shirt my Dad used to have “Utah: If you think our liquor laws are funny, you should see our underwear.”

    sorry, went to bed last night and didn’t see your post…

    re: Carol’s hubby wants a third:

    I’m still incubating, but this much I know: running after 4 and 2 year-olds with nausea, heartburn, backache, belly, plus they don’t understand “I need to sit for 5 minutes”…

    The pregnancy? definitely tougher, albeit temporary (sure doesn’t feel like it, tho). To have the three of them? I’ll let you know in 2 weeks, when I will (reluctantly) be discharged from the hospital.

    But, the sick side of me that wants you to join me, come on, all the cool moms do it…says,

    Now I want coffee. Thanks for the shot. I have missed going out and now I can pretend that I have. (Yeah, that is a bit nuts, but that is where I am in life these days.)

    Katie, lol, “metrosexual overload”. Something about hairy men in the west.
    Hey! time for a ROAD TRIP! I’ll meet you at the Vince Lombardi stop on the NJ turnpike and we can get us some cheap latte, good skiing, and scrumptious bearded men.

    Crap, I’m married.

    Egg Nog latte doesn’t sound very good.

    Pumpkin Spice latte is very bad. It’s like slurping a melted pie.
