Best way to roast the broomstick. Must try. Five Stars.

Austin Chucklett

  • Thanks for censoring…it’s a little early in the morning for that.

  • he looks very thoughtful

  • Maggie

    Wow, I don’t know that I’ve ever been up to see the pic change before..

  • Oh, that naughty boy.

  • Jena: No problem, call me anything you want… wait… did you just call me OLD?!

  • Ed

    Bring back the dog nuts!

  • Ern

    Why watch the news, when you can read each others blogs, and get the really important info? Unless, of course, our favorite blogger is on said news!

    *Come on, Katie, you know you want to…*

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    ARGH! You guys broke me! I am starting a blog tonight. Damn you! 🙂

  • Ern

    I’ll check it out when we get back on Monday!

  • Circus (can I call you Circus?), thanks for making me feel not so irresponsible. It’s good to know that no matter how old we get or what we do, sometimes the news just isn’t a point of entertainment, ya know?! Anywho, thanks so much.

    And Katie, I’m satisfied now. She sounds much different than I expected… more southern, which is fine. I’m from GA, so ya know, good times and all that jazz. Anyway, thanks a million!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    No problem-o, Jena. She does sound really nice. A little bit of a Southern twang, but not that strong. I am in Texas so she sounds pretty northern to me (and I am originally from PA). It is nice to get to hear her voice. We know everything else about her.

    Okay, Ern! I will have it up and ready to go by Monday! I can’t wait!

  • Part-timer, I love you.
    Needed to hear that Fred Flinstone yawp today.

  • that processed cheese bit cracked me up. thanks for the link.
    and where does a person find blackberry sage tea? it sounds lovely. 🙂

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    At least watch the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Jena. It is the latest news, with a dose of comedy intertwined. Actually, it is probably the most accurate take on current events out there.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Kelli, you are right I am sure. The only reason I haven’t started one yet is for just that reason. I get the feeling, though, that I might cave in this weekend and crumble under the pressure. It is truly an addiction, I believe.

  • Ern

    Adios, P-T!

  • OK, I’m outta here — yeehaw! It’s Friiiiidayyyy! Have a great weekend y’all, see you Toooozeday.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Dooce was just on World News Tonight last week. You missed it!?!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work
  • I’m a college kid. You really think I spend a lot of my free time watching news-related television? Come on now.

  • Katie-be-bored, you rock.

  • U.B.

    I hafta to pick my kids up from school. But I need to rinse with tequila first so the other parents have something interesting to talk about.

    Hope everyone has a *fabulous* 3-day weekend!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Point taken. When I was in college, the only tv we watched was Dawson’s Creek and Days of Our Lives.

  • Yyyeeeeeeeaaabba-dabba-DOO!!

    Have a great weekend, everyone!

  • Excuse me, Dooce, but I want to hear what your voice sounds like. Not in a creepy way, but in a “I wonder where the inflection of this sentence falls for her” kinda way. I just discovered (yes, I’m a little slow on the uptake) the wonderful world of AudioBlog. You should check it out. That’s all I’m gonna say. That, and I’m really not a creep.

  • Katie B Bored: It’s SO easy to start a blog, darlin… 😉

    Hello. My name is Kelli and I’m an enabler…

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Thanks, Jena! You rock, too!

  • Jena: I’m way past college, but I don’t watch much news either. You should have seen the look on my face when I asked Hubby to TiVo the NEWS for me. 🙂

  • Ern

    Tequila would be nice. Thanks guys. I didn’t mean to pout. Something about blogging that brings out my inner 3 year old!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    It looks like he is sitting on an Oriental rug. Only the finest Persian flooring for Sir Chuckles.

    And I was just kidding – Chuck is the cutest, sweetest doggie around. I am sure his forlorn look is only because the mailman forgot to give him a treat.

  • U.B.

    BTW, if you looking for a diversion, check out and the, uh, brother site

    Spoof sites on the administrations “abstinence” sex education programs. Pretty dang funny stuff. 🙂

  • Ern

    I know what you mean. I usually can’t keep up with the flow of conversation so I randomly insert comments. 🙂 I guess today I can keep up BECAUSE it is Friday.

  • Katie B Bored: Oh yeah… start your own blog — THAT would make you more productive at work! (Heh, I’m speaking from experience here)

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    It’s okay, Ern. Sometimes I don’t get the attention I want, either. But no pouting – smile, it’s the beginning of the weekend!

  • Now that you mention it, he does have the look my dog sometimes gets when nobody will pay him the attention he wants. Which sometimes is an infinite amount, you see.

    Did you say “dang funny” — where *is* Dang?

  • Ern

    CK-I know what you mean, I don’t know what sucks up more of my time–blogging, or commenting on Dooce!

  • Cristina

    I think Chuck needs a little more BOUFFANT to resemble Austin Scarlett…oh yeah, and maybe a little lip gloss too. Then, the resemblence would be nailed.

    BTW…I dont think Austin has balls either

  • “Some of us have to break away with this whole, pesky work thing. Really cramps my daily enjoyment…”

    Don’t I know it. Many days I simply cannot keep up. Wah.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Aw, Ern. I’ll pour you an extra tall glass of bourbon. Don’t despair! It’s Friday – party time!

  • U.B.

    I don’t think anyone is ignoring you, Ern. Some of us *have* to break away with this whole, pesky work thing. Really cramps my daily enjoyment…

    Me, I’m looking forward to tequila-thirty in about 3 hours. Not crappy tequila. That makes you bullet-proof and charming. Good, well-distilled tequila that you can sip and smile and feel yourself just sort of melt into the stratolounger.

  • I thought he was just relaxing in the sun.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    He likes to constantly remind his mama that she deprived him of the inner workings of his bits and pieces. He has a look of utter disdain on his face.

  • Aw, c’mon Ern, you know we love you too! Pull up a chair and pass yer glass… Ice for you?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I came back because of you, Ern! We love you!

    Geez, I need to start my own blog. 🙂

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I’m glad I have so many fans. 😉

  • Oh Chuck, dear sweet chuck why’re your dangly bits dangling in the picture?? Don’t you know you make mama haveta photoshop said dangly bits to make them presentable for public?

  • Ern

    Thanks Katie. Sniffle.

  • Ern

    Sure, I talk to emptiness, but KBBAW comes back and everyone jumps out of the corners!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Cheers, Moose!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I know! It is really quiet. Usually when I am away for five minutes there are twenty comments to read through. I keep refreshing my browser and see the same comments staring at me. Maybe everyone is going home early on Friday and getting drunk. I could use some bourbon and water right now. Mmmm.

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.
