Just When We Thought That She Couldn't Get Any More Famous

| | Comments (4)

Not that she needs any MORE plugging (but hey, since I only have three readers, no risk of that happening).

Dooce the DORK. Nice ring to it!

CONGRATULATIONS, Dork! So THAT’s what a girl needs to do around here to be famous! Start a website, talk about your boss molesting the air around your head, get squealed on about said website, get fired, and ABC, NPR, NYT and all the other letters of the alphabet will come running and filming you typing DORK.

Are you ready for your close-up, Mrs. Armstrong?

(Update: The segment just aired over here. Okay, not JUST, but I had to watch the former Jeopardy! champions return straight from the vaults of genius, where they've been stored all of these years. Anyway, Leta made it on as well (that kid is going to use up her 15 minutes long before her second birthday rolls around if she keeps this up) and Heather is as articulate an orator as she is a writer. Now, the only question that remains is: Just how skinny IS that woman?!? I mean, isn't the camera supposed to make you gain like a 100 pounds?!?)

She is all about media as of late... she deserves it... man if we only had known what it took. We have time, although I could probably write about work and no one here would have a clue.

You know, I've been reading the blogs for over a year now (though only typing myself for about 3 months), and I've never heard of this woman until today.

And I've heard of her twice in one night.

I think her blog is just a diary, but it's been around so damn long and so consistently that she's like a foundation of the blogosphere.

I am so tired of hearing about Dooce. Writing is okay. Photographs nowhere near as good as she thinks. And if she didn't talk about her boobs so much, no one would pay attention.

Oh God, AMEN Amazed.

Not like I am sour grapes or anything, but thank God I'm not the only one that thinks that.

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
