Quotations That Refuse To Stay In Vegas, No Matter How Much You Wish They Would

  1. “I cannot believe nobody has heard of me here.” — Mommyblogger to unnamed vendor.
  2. Q: “How are you?” Answer: “Drrrrunk.” — Miss Britt.
  3. “Leta refuses to be a part of the website.” [Yes that Leta.]

    Number 1 and number 9 are KILLING me.

    Holy shit. As if I could have LESS RESPECT for the Mommyblogging community…(Minus Miss Britt, I’m drunk, too.)

    Last weeks list went right over my head and now this is the first I heard of Tieks?? I am WAY out of the loop.
    I played along this week too.

    I wish I could be a fly on the wall in conversations with you. Because this list? Pretty awesome. #1 & #9 are perfect bookends…

    Hey Chicken Liver!

    Remember when you and your blog commenters used to make fun of Leta’s looks and called John Armstrong, “Vagina John”, because, you know vaginas are insulting? Or when you used to lament about Heather looking like a man, and the many other ridiculous, petty, cruel and intentional insults you used to throw her way?

    I do!

    Put your hard-on for Heather Armstrong away. The internet world rejoiced you crawling back under your rock; please don’t come out again. Your history of hate invalidates any opinion you have when the subject is Dooce.

    Real Talk.

    When was Dooce on national TV saying her kid was a bad seed? I must have been busy watching the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that day, because I missed it.

    She wasn’t. Consider the source.

    I have to honest and say I didn’t watch it either (and I should have relayed that in my previous statement), I was sleeping most of weekend since I was in a car accident. But I did see promos, and the one I did see was about how she’s stubborn etc she is. Okay I suppose you could say, so kids are stubborn, so what. It’s just that it’s ALWAYS about how she’s just so much work and difficult all the time. If it was rare, it would be funnier, but it seems to be ongoing theme.

    Michelle asked me to delete the comment, so I did. I was at the gym or else I would have moderated — I never remember anything about that being on TV. I haven’t seen everything Dooce has done, but of course, but I don’t think I remember hearing anything about that. I’d like to at least keep discussion here to things to stuff we have textual evidence for, or in which I can personally vouch for quotes, as in this post above.

    Now back to the snark.

    You are Mighty Funny!

    Want more list items! I was hoping for some good snark from you regarding this conference, since it seemed to be the most important thing ever (according to certain bloggers). You did not disappoint. I am hoping for a more detailed review (when you have the time, of course).

    Oh figures *this* is the most notable thing I said all weekend. What about my really insightful commentary on the price of coffee in Vegas?!?!

    Apropos of little, did you know that the founder of Tieks is a triple-degree holder from your alma mater? ’04 (BA), ’05 (MS), and ’08 (MBA). Maybe you should buy some after all. 🙂
