Playful, elegant, and not above the judicious use of the word “shit."

To Grandmother’s house we go

  • Yeath Cathi, scared me.

  • RE: 38…Dooce is the verb maaan

  • Yes, yesterday was the longest work day ever. Thanks, Dooce, for giving an assignment to preoccupy us.

    I’m finding mine a little creepy, but I have to blame that on my choice of pics.

  • Yes, you may correct *my* spelling of the ‘word’ *word*!

    Doh!

  • Em

    Purty!

  • (and the word *definitly*, most definitely!) 😉

  • I like the photo, fine .. it isn’t Chuck, but then what is?

  • lucy in the sky with diamonds

  • Gooooder(#35), is that what happened?! I just thought Dooce was fucking with us..

    I look forward to Chuck Friday all week long. And yesterday he looked so friggin’ sweet it made me crazy (um .. well, something else might have made me crazy, but I digress..)to not be able to profess my love for him.

    Do you think Chuck reads the comments?

  • Another Heather

    Doocy is now an adjective. Great shot by the way. 🙂 Ahhhh… gotta get my morning dooce report while drinking coffee. Thanks.

  • Hi Heather,

    may I correct your spelling of the work ‘Schnapps’?
    Actually it is just ‘Schnaps’ since this is definitly a German word.

    *hicks*

    😉

    Never mind, I just wanted to be a smart a**.

  • That thousand-comment day was amazing! Remember when 200 was a lot? Remember? Sigh.

    Well, hopefully Heather’s making a lot from her adsense! :]

  • Today’s photo is so cool. It just made me even more aware of how much I miss my camera…my two year old has hidden it on me. See what you get to look forward to?

  • p.s. master schuck was too darned cute yesterday. he was afraid he’d miss some of da action if he succumbed to his all-day sleeping routine.

  • Aw– we’re making the morning voyage to a wedding reception full of fabulously gay men. It’s *almost* the same thing!

  • i vote no to 2000 comments! 1000 crashed the server and i couldnt make a single comment all day on CHUCK FRIDAY. it was the longest work day EVER.

  • RazDreams

    love the skirry photo…makes me wonder when the wolf’s gonna come out and eat little red riding hood.

    and yesh, please show us the original photo from the masthead! (and no, let’s not simply all post here just to hit 1000 or 2000 posts…what’s the point or excitement of that anyway?).

  • Not that I want your site to break again, but it was kind of funny to read the last few comments before THE END the other night. Almost like a robot short circuting — repeating phrases, making no sense — and then the final death knell from robot maker Dooce herself.

  • MamaPajama

    2000 comments?? Perhaps we should ask Dooce if it’s a band width problem.

  • Cadbury rawks. Sadly, Marmite does not. Is Dooce telling us that Leta will be raised outside the Church. Of course, Grandma will make sure she gets added to the list of Saints anyway.

  • Come on, Doocelings, let’s go for 2,000 comments today! Marmite! Cadbury! Marmite! Cadbury!

  • Thanks for the photoshop tutorial. I’ve been playing around with it but– nothing as doocy as you do 🙂

  • say Hi to Jesus while you are there. Don’t forget to give everybody the sure sign of the nail.

  • Yay, comments are back! Thanks Dooce. Everybody, let’s not break the site this time, ‘kay?

  • I am in the top 30 possibly, I NEVER thought I would say that. Its because we have just come home from dining out with some friends DRINKING LOTS of wine from our cellars and generally having a great night here in Australia (its midnight) – so I am fairly inebriated and quite happily so and have never posted whilst half tanked EVER. How totally irresponsible of me I better look at that damn photo and say something half relevant – oops just looked and its pretty dark down the bottom and nice and blue and white at the top.

  • Very pretty clouds. We had some lovely storm clouds down here today.

  • Great clouds! It’s been nothing but gray here for quite a while, I miss fluffy clouds!

  • Re: being a dork primer:

    Yeah, but who’s laughing now? I bet they haven’t been mentioned in the New Yawk Times or featured on the Nightly News! It’s a real-life Revenge of the Nerds!

  • Torrie

    Dooce, I’d love to see the original picture that the new masthead is made from.

  • Goose

    OMG!! 21st??

  • ladyalaska

    I do believe that the comments area seems to be more of a chat area. Why doesn’t someone create a newsgroup of some kind? Maybe something along the lines of alt.dooce or alt.dooce.fans I think that would keep comments down a bit? Yes. ‘alt.dooce’. It would work.

  • Susie

    The Betty Ford Center had to open up a new wing yesterday — the dooce.com detox/rehab center. Lotta withdrawal going on.

    Great pix, great posts. What is it about boys who are naughty in church? We always let them hang around too long. A belated Ruff! to the sleepy Congressman.

  • I had to take a photo of “clouds” the other day for a project, went outside, and there were none. So that was put on hold. Can I borrow yours?

  • ohh and btw chuck looks positivly adorable in the last shot!! I tried to comment but couldnt.. so i will now!!

    I remember once a few months ago our dog did the same thing.. I could work out why he wouldnt come to me when I was calling him, and he was stood staring out the window.. I went over and he was asleep standing up… I took some photos and its so funny!!!!

    Chuck looks great hehehe

  • ohhh wow those clouds look brilliant!! makes me feel chilly though!!!

    great shot!!

  • The contrast between the sky and the world below is amazing . . .

  • thanks for the photoshop tutorial…. i suppose my site is up for a redesign soon and tips and tricks i definitely need… now i just hope they apply to GIMP because i totally cannot afford photoshop.

  • Franny

    The sky there is so amazing. I’m in Houston and the only truly perfect sky we get is when the refineries to the east give us a chemically-enriched sunrise.

  • a friend of mine in Park City says you get sun 300+ days a year – to those of us in very gray Michigan, thats just sad for us. travel on!

  • You’ve got the “through the woods part” covered. I am betting you have already been over the river.

  • Yawn, makes me tired. Too early for me. And it’s 2:00 p.m. over here. I’m just not a morning person, I guess. Not even in pictures.

  • Jme

    Pretty blue colour…*swoons*

  • looks kinda like ushuaia.

    only with less rain. and no penguins.

    i´d shout out (type out?) “first” or “second” or “sixth” or something, but i figure you people should be over that by now.

    greetings from the great white south regardless.

  • robs

    Looks early, hope Leta is sleeping…or late, still hopefully Leta will sleep, it make the drive so much better. Have a greqat weekend!

  • Marcia

    Same sky here in NY-brrrrrrrrr

  • Em

    Where is everyone?

  • Yesterday when comments weren’t appearing for some reason…I was sad. I didn’t realize how much I like telling you how much I like this site and your work on an almost daily basis.

    thanks. i love a beautiful blue sky.

  • Alan

    Beautiful to see on a Saturday morning.

  • Em

    What’s going on?

  • Henryk_

    Spoony, I guess we will never find out….huh??!!
