  • jordan

    I thought I should take advantage of this rare opportunity (being in the top 100 comments), to thank you for being you. Your blog has helped me develop a better since of humor about my mental health and poop. And for that I am forever grateful 😀

    Do you take your camera everywhere you go? I do that because I’m afraid the one time I don’t, I’ll miss something cool.

    dooce, I have never wanted to go snowboarding, and you’ve made me dream about it at night. I’ll blame you if I suddenly have an expenxive snowboarding habit (I live in a country with very little snow and no hills at all)!

    Hey Misha, how was the show?? They were in Houston Thursday night at a VERY SMALL venue, sold out in less than twenty minutes. I tried to get legit tickets, and when that didn’t work I tried to get counterfeit tickets produced by a graphic designer friend. Too bad they didn’t work, SON OF A BITCH.

    The point is, I hate you for getting into their show you dirty, dirty skank. 🙂

  • TexaRican

    2005/02/28 at 3:38 am

    Spoonleg, I feel your pain – I tried to get tix too. Why oh WHY did they play at f*&king NUMBERS of all places!!!

    And add me to the scholastic procrastinators club…I’m up studying for an exam I have at 11:30 today!

    Happy Monday all. 🙂

    i met a snowboarding guide in puerto natales a couple weeks ago. he has spent six seasons here in south america teaching snowboarding. claims daily chest high powder and lift tickts that cost about the same as movie in LA. between the two of you i am starting to miss skipping winter this year. really, really considering coming back in july with a snowboard.

    I’m having a brain funk and can’t remember any truly embarassing moments (so I didn’t want to put this on the main page), but I am writing to wish you a happy blog birthday.

    Looks like someone spilled a little water on your water color sky. Very pretty.

    Embarassing Moment:

    I went to a corporate event held at Universal Studios. Part of the event included having professional makeup artists do fantastic and gruesome things to our faces – you know, scars, popped eyes, blood, and such.

    Well one guy had a fantastic job done and his face was truly gruesome, horrible scars and complete disfigurement. I said “holy cow! that’s the most gruesome face here!”

    It wasn’t makeup. The poor guy was, in-fact, horribly disfigured.

    What a heel I am.

    Salt Lake City looks so small compared to smelly old Sydney where i’m currently living.

    So. Tiny.

    And a happy Blog Birthday ofcourse. It’s hard to believe Dooce.com has been around a full 4 years. I hope there will be many, many more

    YES SPOON! I’m having Leta withdrawel myself. I’m craving the cuteness.

    Please bring out your gorgeous daughter Heather! (where ever you have her currently stashed!)

    That’s gorgeous. I take pics of the Nashville skyline all the time. I am in love with big cities!

    Embarassing moments…
    I had so many, let me pick the one about the first time I tried skiing. The teacher told us you can’t put your skies wrong on. Left/right no matter.
    Imagine his face when I asked him after 5 minutes trying, and he told me, I proved him wrong…
    I actually tryed to put the curly part to the back.

    heather –

    did i miss the announcement that you were suspending pictures of the frog princess? i must say, it makes me sad, because she is delicious, but i certainly understand.

  • ap

    2005/02/28 at 4:25 am

    It’s so TINY! More Leta photos – we miss the Leta photos!!

  • Eric

    2005/02/28 at 4:37 am

    I thought SLC was much bigger. Looks like Leta could step on downtown, or at least crawl over and put some buildings in her mouth.

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.
