Naughty Boys Need Love Too

Hey, kids. I'm going to say it loud, I'm back and I'm proud. I drove home in horrible snow and icy conditions with my friend T. and we made it here with all of our limbs in tact and as much sanity as we left with. (yeah, shut-up)

So, here's the deal. I'm beat, so I'm going to make this as short as possible so I can try to get some sleep. Tomorrow I can tell you about the drive and about how kick-ass my sister and bro-in-law were and how much fun my girls had with their cousins in Ottumwa and how much fun I had with Erik in St Louis, but for now, I'm showing you some pictures and following Erik's suggestion for writing about his friend who we shall call El Dozer.

First of all, let me say that El Dozer is one of the few people I've met who talks more shit than I do. I know. I didn't think it was possible either, but I'm hear to tell you that it is.

Secondly, El Dozer has ridiculed me and my blog, by reading the posts about Erik aloud to him in a mocking tone and then telling me that I was a geek and an attention whore by even having a blog. Right. As if, establishing an on-line community of readers with a bunch of people I've never met makes me a geek. And just because I post tons of photos of myself and my friends and then write text about myself and my friends for a bunch of people I've never met, does that make me an attention whore? Okay, you know what, you can shut-up and not answer that one either.

Let's get back to El Dozer. Even though he talks a lot of shit and has high-five tourettes after he's been drinking, it turns out, he can be tamed. All it takes is the right kind of discipline, and El Dozer is as docile as a kitten.

See? He can be taught to be quiet and respectful.

And then he's all about the love.

Okay. So, now that I wrote a post about El Dozer on my blog, does that mean I can call him a geeky attention whore too?

Wonder if he is a dozer because he sleeps a lot, shovels stuff. Or both.

1) You look freakin' fabulous.

2) Yes. (the answer to the questions at the end.)

LOL, yes geeky and adorable!

Tara said...

El Dozer looks and sounds like a fun guy. I'm glad you had so much fun! Hope you caught up on your sleep when you got back too.

NoRegrets said...

I love that - high five tourette's. !!! As for the last question, well, if he enjoys it even a tiny bit (and even if he doesn't admit it to you), then yes.

what does El Dozer's hieney feel like? you know he wants you to tell us, your online geek following

Can't wait to hear more about your trip. I miss STL.

Mr Atrocity said...

I think we should all get "Geeky Attention Whore" t-shirts printed up ASAP.

Congrats on the ride home, I'm about to dirve my ass 45 minutes through some fucking treachory and I feel like screaming hail marys at the top of my lungs. gaaaah Colorado blows.

booda baby said...

Voting? BEFORE Super Tuesday? Yay. I vote yes. He is.

The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch: said...

Me thinks El Dozer is a bit jealous of his friend's sexy new girlfriend and if you can break him of the high five thing he should be fixed up with a girlfriend of his own, pronto.

Glad you had a good time and made it back in one piece!

Chance said...

Yeah, El Dozer's just jealous. Also, I've found that people who don't immediately "get" blogging are people who aren't very literate or sociable.

Dozer clearly loves being photographed, so he know what he speaks of when he speaks of attention whores. He's adorable :-) I'm glad you had such a fun weekend.

minijonb said...

He's just lucky to hang with a cool A-list blogger like you!

evil-e said...

We used to have a friend named Dozer back in the day....

You attention whore you, welcome back. You were missed.

MrManuel said...

I think El Dozer is going to come after you for posting pictures of him on the net. The things I could do with photoshop....

El Toro Dozer said...

It's El Toro Dozer, btw!

Churlita said...


We may not want to know how he got his nickname.


Thanks. And I think so too.


He is geeky, and adorable.


Yup, he's totally fun.

And yup again, I finally caught up on my sleep.

No Regrets,

It looks like he likes it.


His heiny feels real nice.


You're going back for St Pats though. You'll at least know the names of the places you're going to.

Mr Atrocity,

I think you're right.


It blows here right now too.

Booda Baby,

Consider your vote counted.


He just needs a girl who is into the high fives too.


I'm sure he gets blogging.. He just wants to make sure he gives me as much shit as possible.




I know, right?


Thanks. That's some good attention there.

Mr Manuel,

I already warned him.

El Toro,

Sorry. Erik didn't give me the full name, but maybe that's just because I'm the flavor of the week.
