    Actually, come to think of it, I am bitter about this – I might be the only one not to have a blog. I have a life too, people, one that begs to be documented and adorned with photos and comments.

    Though I don’t think I have cysts. That might make me unworthy of Movable Type.

    Mighty Jimbo – “you people”????

    Aren’t you one of the longest standing doocelings around? I saw one of your comments in the archives on a VERY old post.

    Dude, you’re a cult elder.

    wine and cake afternoon soiree? Verryyyy interesting!

    jimbo: at my former empoyer, the “uniform” for casual fridays among the graphic design crowd was blue jeans and black turtlenecks. We could adopt that.

    (Though it would hide our back zits, preventing the social pick-fest that proceeds the traditional wine and cake afternoon soiree.)

  • giggles

    2005/03/10 at 2:20 pm

    ahh…after I sent my comment I wondered if that was what you meant! Me=Dunce! 🙂

    His initials do start with a ‘d’ though…so maybe it could be in the family! If so, yeah! A family with something in common -dooce and taste bud cutting off!!!

    his initials giggles. I was wondering ifins we were gonna be a kinfolks is all.

    Well, it depends on whether you want instant gratification, or if you like to anticipate.

    Apparently, at one time, if you looked at the underside of a twinkie, you would see that a couple of the holes used to inject the cream filling were closer together at one end that at the other. Therefore, if you wanted more cream up front, you started eating at the end where the holes are closer together. If you wanted to anticipate, you would eat at the end where they’re spaced further apart. So I am told. I have not seen a twinkie in ages.

    Beer and twinkies ROCK!

  • Merdog

    2005/03/10 at 2:08 pm

    Egad! Enough with the zits and the pus and the taste buds and the cutting! More cake! More wine!

    I KNOW! He thinks it makes him tough or something. I don’t think he got enough love in his child hood…I mean it’s not like he’s a cutter or anything.

  • giggles

    2005/03/10 at 2:05 pm

    My bf cuts his taste buds with a clipper too! He says they grow funky and feel wierd and just HAS to get them off his tongue. Odd, gross, and unsanitary in my opinion. But, I’m fighting out of my weight class with him (as he states) and I just smile and leave him alone.

    Peter Hentges – nice summary. Now, there’s even more to add!

    Dr.Fever, Why don’t you bend over and I’ll have my helper monkey knaw at it with her teeth while we all watch and drink wine and eat cake. My brother clipps taste buds with toe nail clippers. It looks painful, I think the monkey would be more gentle.

    I haven’t had any kind of wine in ages – well since the last time I had dinner with the in-laws. I got two bottles for Christmas and finally decided to open one. What a treat! I have a baguette in the oven and some sliced cheese ready. This is living!

    Peter #508. You can add that the participants were enjoying good Australian red wines!

  • Henryk_

    2005/03/10 at 1:47 pm

    and like all reds, full of antioxidants. Keeps you younger, provided it is imbibed in moderation!

    I have a boil on my ass. Can that be lanced? Or do I have to clip it off with some toenail clippers?

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.
