An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation
  • That’s one of those moments that Kristine talks about, where the D70 does it’s own thing.

  • That’s pretty trippy. I love the stupid car lights up blue.

    Wow, within the first 100. Lyke omfg@#df%&firstfirstfirst!?

    I need coffee.

  • What is it?

  • Henryk_

    ‘Liquid caffiene…..need some complete with 1G Paracetamol

  • Disco lights and strobes make me jumpy.
    Haveing a great day, both bosses gone till Thursday! Going at lunch to apply for another job. Yeay! I can’t wait to tell them to suck it!

  • Annabelle

    Feeling. Dizzy. Need. To. Vomit.

    Not diggin’ it. Great picture yesterday, and she follows with a mind game.

  • Henryk_

    Vomit, vomit??……herbbbbbbbbbbbbbb!!

  • Henryk_

    Mind game?? More like…mindless game!

  • Yowza!!

  • ishouldbeworking

    verrry interesting…makes my head kinda hurt…no wait, maybe it’s cuz I’ve been at work for 2 1/2 hours and been too busy to get coffee. MUST.GET.CAFFIENE.NOW

  • That bacon grease story reminds me of my grandmother. She used for about everything and kept it in a little metal canister. Country folk have some odd snacks. My mother liked cornbread and milk, my dad enjoyed peanut butter and syrup with bread.

  • Wow, did I mix my meds this morning or what? I feel very oooooogley now.

  • Henryk_

    ishouldbeworking, you orta meet Katie-be-bored-at-work!

  • How many times is it safe to use bacon grease over and over? I have seen people do this and it sort of appalls me to see the coffee tin full of coagulated lard sitting there. My mom would sometimes use bacon grease for ONE use, but not over and over. This has to be unsafe. Here we are worried about rat feces in peanut butter.

  • Henryk_

    you spell it …faeces!

  • I find used bacon grease to be gross. My mom used to do that, save it. Ewww! Thank goodness she’s stopped that crazyness

  • ashik

    mmmmm…. rat feces

  • Henryk_

    Not that I give a shit about how you spell faeces!

  • Hi! to SFG, KBBAW, Henry, and ashik

  • Dashboard?

    PS I meant to post yesterday but Leta is getting prettier by the day! She looks all snugglicious in that pic.

  • ishouldbeworking

    mmmmmmmm fresh hot coffee…..
    the bacon grease story reminds me of my grandparents too…. after i realized what it was and what they did with it, i didn’t want to eat at grandma’s anymore. ewwww

  • Henryk_

    Hi lawbrat….its good morning to you,’and good night from me. Time for bed!(12:40am Sydney time)

  • my eyes! _*MY EYES!*_

    (pic makes me feel like doin’ a little jig right here at my desk.)

  • Henryk, no YOU spell it faeces! We here in this part of the world know SIMPLIFIED SPELLING IS BETTER 😉

  • ashik

    Hi lawbrat. I’ve always wondered – and probably missed the explanation(s) – why are you a lawbrat?

  • Sleep well Henry.

  • ashik

    Seriously, Henryk, “shoppe” is one of those words that never should have been.

  • Lawbrat!!!! Happy Break to you……yeeeeeehaw, sistah.

  • Henryk_

    too late! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • Hi Andrea!

    Ashik, I’m in law school, trying to become a lawyer. I can be a brat. My mom would tease me and call me a brat, now she says I’m too old to be a brat, but lawbitch dosent have the same ring to it. 🙂

  • LeafGirl77 aka Kendra in T-Bay

    Since we’re talking bacon greese… My mom has a jar of it in the fridge and would use it to make fried potatoes, etc, but that’s about it. I grew up thinking it was normal, but now I’m thinking…hmmm…health hazard? I have yet to keep the bacon greese…it simply finds its way into a can, and in the garbage.

  • KBBAW – what is this mention of rat feces in peanut butter?? This is troubling…does that mean that I should stop eating spoonfuls of PB with a drop of honey for breakfast??

    And I think the trippiness of the picture (which is fabulous BTW) is a direct result of a Pop Tart overdose.

  • cool photo. happy accident?

  • El Greco

    “Paradise by the dashboard lights!”

  • ashik

    Lawbrat, nice! What school? I just graduated this year.. 🙂

  • While I can certainly see that it’s a car dashboard, it also looks like some kind of weird robot with huge, hollow eyes and an evil, neon grin. I’m pretty sure he aims to take over the world.

    Also, I get a little nauseated, staring at him.

  • Annabelle

    I keep bacon grease in my freezer in a small tupperware. I don’t use it over and over- but I continue to add to it every time I make bacon (and I don’t use the grease to make bacon- that’s a good way to create a bubbling and spitting conflagration on your stovetop). Then, whenever I have a meal that requires a tablespoon of bacon fat to start off- like bolognese sauce, for example or the ragu for the lasagna I make- I just take it from the container. It’s not gross- unless of course you’re frying breaded pickles in two inches of it. But in general, it is a very common cooking method and just a little of it adds a lot of flavor to a dish- when appropriate.

  • I could really go for a bacon grease sandwich.

  • Congrats Ashik! Cooley Law School, in lansing Mi

  • ashik

    rat feces fried in bacongrease..a recipe for the ages

  • Hey Ashik and Lawbrat, remember me when you need a good paralegal….:) Even with all the posting I do on here some days, I get my shit done. 🙂

  • I feel like dancing…

  • Annabelle

    faeces is British.

  • LOL SFG! I will remember you. Could you imagine what a team we would make SFG? We’d take dooce breaks!

    Ashik, where did you go to school?

  • LeafGirl aka Kendra in T-Bay

    OK, I can see the merits now…by keeping the bacon greese in the freezer. That way it doesn’t get rancid. Good thinking.

    And the ole bacon greese does add a certain je ne sais quoi to a couple dishes… I must admit I miss my mom’s fried potatoes. 🙁

  • ashik

    SFG – 🙂
    dooce helps me get all mine done. and boy is there a lot of it.

  • If it’s British, it’s HOT.

  • ashik

    Berkeley, duuuuude. Good weather *all* the time.

  • I am so jealous!! We have grey weather all the time. On sunny days, people are like….WOOOOW, there IS a sun!

  • Hi Lawbrat!

    Susannah, we were talking yesterday about how apparently there are trace amounts of rat “faeces” in peanut butter. Hey, it doesn’t stop me from eating it. I had a peanut butter jelly sandwich last night!

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.
