    Hope you had a great time.

    I confess, I am a dooce addict. I had my first dooce dream last night where I flew out to spend a day with Heather and the family.

    I promise, I’m not stalker scary crazy, just love to read your site! You have a great writing style.

    Keep it up!

    So what did she just say that made you laugh so much?

    I saw the finger (in the thumbnail) and thought it was another pic of Leta.
    Imagine my joy to see your huge grins and friendship just shining out at me.
    I am smiling back at you. Even if you can’t see it.

    Oh, and I don’t want to imply that I don’t enjoy pics of Leta. I just derive a lot of happiness from seeing the happiness of others.

    Hey – Courtney stole my comment! Damn it!

    Love the “fingernail” thumbnail!

    You have what my brother refers to as the “Universal High”- no drugs necessary.

    Although according to his theory this generally happens when two other people are smoking up and your the sober third (and fourth in this case)person. Which begs the question: Just what are Jon & Dave up to behind the camera???

    It’s so lovely to see you looking happy, Dooce 🙂

    There is absolutely nothing like laughing with your friends. Great photo 🙂

    Oh please. You expect us to believe that? Beth totally has the pre-exhale, post-bong hit face going on there.

    However, I am envious of her healthy-looking fingernails. And it’s nice to see more pics of you smiling! Or laughing uncontrollably. Whatever.

    You look so happy!

    Girlfriends! My 7-year-old daughter said of her best friend, “Bailey and I think things are funnier than other people do.” Isn’t that a perfect definition of a best friend?

    That is the universal Moms-whose-children-have-finally-fallen-asleep look.

  • Heatheranne

    2005/01/08 at 7:25 am

    I have a feeling there’s a story behind the laughing!

    That’s what best friends are for.

  • Melanie

    2005/01/08 at 7:32 am

  • Beth

    2005/01/08 at 7:41 am

    Aww, that’s excellent! You can’t beat having a good friend.

  • Becca

    2005/01/08 at 7:43 am

    That’s what friends are for.. to share moments like that.

  • JulieT

    2005/01/08 at 8:00 am

    Wow, the lack of comments on Saturday sure illustrates how many people are wasting company time on this website during the work week. 🙂

    You see, it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.

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.
