if you haven't discovered dooce yet, you have to clink my link to favorite places and check her out. she is the best blogger out there.
some of the "comments" on her site today reminded me of Richard Jeni's recent suicide. many of us who hide our feelings with comedy could use the reminder that we are loved and not to take the haters too seriously. this too shall pass.
and then there's Heather. now, she could be hiding her emotions. or blanking them out with Prozac, which is more likely (being as she posts about it). but when she gets hate mail, does she hate back? no. she posts it and mocks the mailers.
i hope i grow up to be like her.
and the name isn't anything nasty, it's her inability to type fast, in a work setting, which earned her a nickname now memorialized for all time (or until the EMP) on her site.
