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

    OMG< i thought they were bamboo shoots too! And then i thought of the penis. Since there's been so much talk of the penis of late. BTW. There will be no muff-bashing today. I was sore all weekend.

  • Yer right KBBAW. After a coupla drinks I start to think my phone call doodling is like, a work of art.

  • wow, the light is awesome..

  • Anybody want to get married?

    Maybe Pokey and Flanella?

    Buck and I could perform the ceremony.


    Been missing ya, my neighbor. Any more kidney related ailments? Poor thing – thought one of those things took ya over.

  • Ha ha. I said Buck.

  • Muffy

    I wonder if I can sell my wedding thong on E-bay?

  • I will only perform marriages which take place on the Holy Twister Mat.

    It’s part of Bucky’s Canon.

  • Muffy

    Uh oh. Pokey is gonna be pissed. He’s gonna leave the astroglide at home. Poor me.

  • This makes me miss my husband.


  • I thoguht the thumbnail was an extreme closeup of some Mormon pipe orgran.

    And I’ve never had sake, either…

    (#50? maybe?)

  • It does resemble a pipe organ. I bet those Mormons ban cameras from their temples, though, so we will never really know what their pipe organs look like. Then again, knowing Heather, she would whip out her D70 without anyone noticing and snap a quick pic, like she did of Nicole Kidman at the movie.

  • Totally thought that was bamboo from the thumbnail pic. Very cool shot though. Happy Monday everyone!!

  • Mary

    Wow Heather nice shot.
    Oh btw my daughter takes off any hair accessories on her head even at age 5. So i would be customer #2. So start producing them.

    Personally, I’m shocked at the phallic interpretations here. Everybody can see it looks like a giant nipple.

  • LeafGirl77

    Oh yeah, dogs should certainly be fed Capt’n Crunch.

    Poor thing.

  • POKEY would say…

    BTW, I’m marrying in 16 days, a man that doesn’t care for sake.
    Should I join that runaway bride for a hot carafe in Albuquerque?

    That would REALLY make my mom disown me!

  • I definitely want some prints from your wedding, Muffy.

  • I need me some sake, maybe I’d understand what my two year old is yammering about. Probably not.

  • That picture makes me squint in the glow of the sunset.

  • I think this shot is rather phallic. Of course, when I am in a sake haze, I start thinking about sex, too.

  • This picture doesn’t do much for me.

  • Katie-have-sake-in-desk-drawer?

  • Phallic phencepost? You people have dirty, dirty minds. Filthy. Penis-obsessed people. Tallywhacker tramps. Pecker pinchers. Sake-soaked semen seekers.

    Okay, okay, so “phallic” _was_ the absolute first word that, um, popped into my head when I looked at this, so what? Huh?

  • Lisa

    A bit, shall we say, phallic??

  • It is phallic, but in a botched circumcision kinda way

  • Cap’n Crunch is fine for dogs, so long as it’s balanced out by lots of sake.


    Huh? I’m not getting married! Unless Flanella Jo wants THIS!

  • LeafGirl77

    The thumbnail makes the picture seem like it’s going to be warmer than it is.

    I like it, yet it kind of huts my eyes.

  • LeafGirl77

    Huts…Ha! It huts us…

  • Phallic Phallic Phallic.
    What’s with the penis envy lately? I’m having it too!

  • becaru

    Muffy, when’s the wedding? It’s gettin’ close?

  • This photo is like a dream segment where you’re trying to figure out what’s going on, but all you can remember is the damn fence post.Then you spend the day going, wtf?

  • Muffy

    Bec…16 DAYS!
    I finally got most of the thank you notes from the shower out. My mom was gonna disown me.

    And ya know, it’s gonna be a white trash weddin…complete with a newborn sucklin’ on my breast at the altar.

    That was a joke.

  • POKEY would say…

    THIS is no joke.

  • Sake haze? What? Was the other arm holding onto the fence for balance?

  • Ali

    Pretty shot, Heather…though it definitely is a bit phallic, haha.

    Good morning everyone!

  • Nice photo. It looks like you must have drunk sake until the sun came up – or did it go down?

  • Ali

    Aha! Muffy, we definitely are on the same page, so it MUST be phallic.

  • could be sunrise or sunset – I love it when it’s not clear. (phallic? I agree – but only because SuburbanBliss has been sharing thos pictures…)

  • Nita


  • hmmmm. Kind of Phalic. Or is it just me

  • gaaaah. where are the eyes of t.j. eckleburg?

  • Melynda

    Nice pic. I went to see Sarah McLachlan this weekend, and my best friend and I ate Japanese and had quite a bit of Sake before the show. Sake and Sarah – is there anything better?!?! NOPE! hehehe

  • Kourtney

    What a lovely shot!

    Maybe I’ve been in drilling camp too long, but as that’s a phallic fence, the sun MUST be going down.

  • oops. I guess not. Maybe I should, like, read the other comments before I post.

  • Liz

    I really enjoy your site! Keep up the great storeis!

  • perception

    I like the small square you chose for the preview. =)

  • Justin

    Wow! I’m only in the twenties. That’s an accomplishment for me. Just as that picture is an accomplishment for you, Heather. 🙂

  • Lauri

    Can you believe I have never had sake???

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.
