An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation

Self portrait Wednesday is in da house

  • hmmm
    te original vagina dentata reference was here:

    but it appears that was down tonight.

    here’s a cached version minus the pic:

    the text is more indepth than the article.

    funny the article uses the pic but doesn’t reference where they got it…

  • Ern is back up. Thanks Girl.A.

  • Ern

    Wow…thanks Annejelynn…I think…very educational…

  • Sweet Ern knows not of what she asketh…

  • I am indeed spelunking right now, but I’d rather be playing your pink guitar with my altoid.

  • I was thinking more of the motion of strumming than of the shape of the instrument.

  • AndiMAC

    Jeez I need to staart commenting earlier so I dont have 500 people’s comments ahead of me…

  • hmmm I think pink guitar could go either way so to speak.

    Waxing my guitar, polishing my guitar…

    Gotta tune my guitar, the strap broke on my guitar…

    I got a new electric guitar, and it really sings when I play it with one of those blue balls wah wah pedals…

  • Ern

    Wait, I haven’t seen the dentata link! Someone direct me!

  • I think “strumming the pink guitar” sounds more like a “female activity” than “male”

  • Ern

    But a male is shaped more like a guitar.

  • Kells

    I’m curious, do you actually read all the comments you receive everyday – because there are a shitload??!!!

  • Shax- very nicely said.

    Metro- “The Pink Guitar and the Quacking G-String” would be a great name for a band.

  • oh no no no – I saw it already

    don’t refresh my memory of the link


  • Ern

    CM-that’s disappointingly tame. I think we should make it dirty from here on in. (I’m gonna play my husband’s pink guitar!)

    On Sex and the City, Carrie dated a jazz bass player who would “play” her like the standup bass…you get the jist…

  • okay, I can spell VA-gi-na

  • Girl.A – show Annejelynn the dentata link. (I’m over the nightmares now)

  • oh, wait? pink guitar is NOT some perverse reference to beating off?


    *vigina dentata* ??????????????????!

    Today’s “Self-Portrait Day” has opened up avenues of, um, discovery far beyond my imagination…

  • A Nonymous

    Am I the only one who thinks she looks like Liz Phair in this pic?

  • LOL – I just caught on to what a ‘pink guitar’ is (call me slow)

  • Ern – my daughter got a pink Barbie guitar for Christmas, that I foolheartedly mentioned that I was actually playing more than she was, and then got badgered to post a picture on my blog.

    (but it does sound dirty, doesn’t it?)

  • I never comment here (though I like the writing,) and I have to say that anyone who tries to diagnose a child of any disease based on anecdotal evidence is a moron. How dare anyone diagnose a little girl they have never met based on postings on a blog, well written though they may be. It’s not helpful, and out of context, any group of symptoms can put someone on the “spectrum”. I almost want to tell “dweeb” and “blonde” that telling a parent you don’t know that their kid you have never met is autistic causes cancer. But that would be wrong.

  • Ern

    Shax-that’s why we call them trolls!

  • Ern

    Is pink guitar something dirty? Or do you really have a pink guitar?

  • OMG – the altoid? is that true?

    yah, I’ve never done that before…

  • No, no, I haven’t played the pink guitar since, umm, yesterday. Playing the “real” guitar tonight.

  • The pink guitar?

  • Dang Cold – thanks for the inspiration – one more song that I can now say I’ve played on my guitar.

  • Ern

    Seems I went to a meeting and dinner and missed the par-tay. 🙁

  • Ern

    But I see you all gave the troll a good spankin’ for us all and then circled the wagons around the Dou-chay for some cocktails!
    Well done, doocelings.

  • Sometimes crying is a very healing experience. It can bring relief and closure.

  • copy_kitty

    Dang Cold.. :

    Thank you. And good night.

  • Night….

    My My, Hey Hey (Out Of The Blue) – Neil Young

    My my, hey hey
    Rock and roll is here to stay
    It’s better to burn out
    Than to fade away
    My my, hey hey.

    Out of the blue
    and into the black
    They give you this,
    but you pay for that
    And once you’re gone,
    you can never come back
    When you’re out of the blue
    and into the black.

    The king is gone
    but he’s not forgotten
    This is the story
    of a Johnny Rotten
    It’s better to burn out
    than it is to rust
    The king is gone
    but he’s not forgotten.

    Hey hey, my my
    Rock and roll can never die
    There’s more to the picture
    Than meets the eye.
    Hey hey, my my.

    “Sugar and Orifices”

    That’s a great band name!

  • judykwilson

    And, you said you cried yourself to sleep….but you have what seems to so many others a wonderful life–I, still and so, many, know what crap can be unintentionally instilled by our others and a mindset quite not able to deal with those “unlike” us…not to be above–but just to be ourselves…GAWD I love your dailies….and, me, I can have no children…I only have hound dogs…but only if I could write like you, Heather! WOW I look forward to Leta and Chuck each day…more of Chuck to come, now that Leta is on the move! My dear, keep giving us joy!

  • Oh yeah, so it’s easy to think that a double intendre is equally funny on both sides of the intendre. Obviously NOT the case. Sorry.

    So yeah, someone accidentally misplaced an altoid once and it was discovered by a doctor. And then it was the source of a lecture on sugar and orifices.

  • Circus Kelli: Thankyouverymuch for the chocolate!
    And me too….I’d love to stay and party, but the supper dishes are caaaaallllllliiiiinnnngg.
    Have a good night everyone.
    Everyone except the trolls, that is.

  • Ladybug:
    Thank you. You diddin miss the party baby… here have some chocolate! 🙂

    I should be getting myself to bed or something. I’ve been playing all night on my ‘puter… what’s wrong with me?! There was laundry to be folded! 🙂

  • copy_kitty

    Closet Metro:

    Ah, thank you. Been there, posted. But checked out before “the mint” was mentioned!

  • Circus Kelli – Your pics are way cool.

    I spent so much time catching up on comments, I’m a-feared I missed the party. *sniff*

  • copy_kitty

    Snail trails are everywhere.

  • copy_kitty: look for girl.a’s comment here:

  • I’m going to skooch myself off to bed because the Nyquil is kicking in…and I…can’t…open…*cough* my eyes anymore.

    Night Night guys & Gals & Girl A’s.

  • copy_kitty


    No, not shut up. More “let us in on the Altoids joke!”

    Did I miss something?!

  • One of the last things my mother said to me before she died was, “hold those babies for me”. Think about that every time you’re ready to give up, when all looks lost and you’re ready to throw in the towel. Hold those babies like it’s the last thing you’ll ever do!

  • Dang Cold, Relentless, ClosetMetro, Amanda B, Girl A:


    I got all artsy fartsy with that pic in Paint Shop Pro. Here’s a more mundane one:

  • cathi-

    when i heard that name, i went running for the living room…her name is “vonzell” or something, but hey, close enough!

    my bf couldn’t figure out why i was so interested in some random woman’s name…i almost started to explain it, decided against it, shook my head and just smiled at him.

    the way it’s pronounced, it TOTALLY sounds like “fawnzelle”. what are the odds???

  • COOL pic Circus Kelli.

    “get a room” – was that a super nice way of saying shut up?

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.
