Dooce is pregnant! Heather Armstrong is pregnant! I am kind of behind the times, so I didn’t know anything about Heather Armstrong (aka “Dooce”) till several months ago. But as I said, it appears that she’s pregnant (again)! Wow. Why am I so excited? Because pregnancy recently earned me this precious little guy
Assuming you are much more “with it” than me, you have probably long known about the famous blogger Dooce, right? She’s a Southern girl who grew up Mormon, but then decided not to be Mormon. In case you don’t know who she is, to make a long story short, she worked in LA with internet stuff, got fired from her job for her blog, got famous for that, actually coining the term “got dooced” meaning “got fired for something blog-related.” THEN she had horrible post partum depression and had to go to a hospital and blogged about that too…Now she lives in Salt Lake City, Utah and writes notes to her daughter each month. She’s very open and curses like a sailor. She makes a lot of people mad, but tens of thousands of people read her blog (literally).
Well, her latest post says that she’s about 2 months she’s PREGNANT with her second child!!?
Little known fact: Dooce (or Heather Armstrong) grew up in Barlett, Tenessee. I lived in Bartlett too, till the ripe old age of 8. It’s possible that Heather and my sister could have been in kindergarten together, as Dooce’s blog says she graduated high school in 1993, the same year as my sister. If Heather weren’t so famous, and if she didn’t get thousands of emails every day, I’d ask her if she by any chance remembers my sister–the girl with three boyfriends, including one who threw up every day at naptime.
Even lesser known fact: The due date of Dooce’s baby is my sister’s birthday, June 14. That’s also Flag Day. he he. A very fun day, indeed.
So with Flag Day, Barlett, 1975, and boyfriend throwing up at naptime…Do you think Dooce and my sister have a cosmic connection? I doubt it. I’m the only one in my family who keeps up with blogs–my sister has no idea who Dooce is.
Perhaps if I kept up with blogs just a little less frequently I could make more progress on the horrid writing project that I am suppose to be working on. THANKS.
