First, a contribution from Becky inspired, and I'm being very generous with myself here, by a posting about wasabe peas:
How about a wasabe haiku?
Cool hand, spicy tongue
Wasabe peas feed my soul
With the fire of life
The traditional definition of the verb "Dooce" has to do with an unfortunate confluence of blogging about one's job and retaining one's job. Enough said there. If by some miracle you're at this site not through Dooce then check out the best blog ever.
For the rest of you Dooce Fans I'd like to propose a second definition:
"Dooced - to have the hit count on one's blog jump from 20 to 6,000 hits per day from a single mention by Dooce."
I tell you Dooce has some powerful magic going on.
In addition to this great rush of hits I've received a whole bunch of really nice emails from people who have had experience buying, or trying to buy, the Weird Thing at Kroger's.
Thank you all.
