Russian Nesting Doll Wednesday

This week, my guest is Dewy Knickers.

Dewy was asked to define Manifest.

Good morning everyone, this is Dewy Knickers here on a very special day for me!!! As you can see, I have been asked to be today’s special guest. As far as I know, I am the first openly multiple multiple to be a guest here at Doug’s. What is a multiple you ask? Well, simply put, I am a woman who lives in a man, that man being Brian aka hummingbunny.

Doug gave me the word Manifest to define. Hmmmm. Manifest. Manifest? What is he trying to tell me? That this is my destiny? That I am a bill of lading? Perhaps I am just a bill of goods? Perhaps return to sender or collect on delivery? Is he saying that I am opaque? Not real or see through? It's clear to me that Doug wouldn't do that to someone that has a crush on him; now would he?

So let us manifest my birth. Brian started blogging in Feb/March 2006. By April 23rd, 2006 he had made several good friends, and the idea for the Hysterical Blogger News Network was born in an e-mail exchange. I was first manifested in print on June 14th, 2006 in a post called “Oh!Alberto!” followed up on June 28th, 2006 in “Fire Down Below”.

My next star turn was when for the entire month on July, I was manifest in my determination to cover the Tour de France and I did that so well, that HBNN gave me my own blog called “Get Your Daily Knickers” that debuted July 28th, 2006.

The first show I created was called “Blog Stew” on August 23rd, 2006 and also on September 23rd, 2006 I launched “Flashing Knickers With Dewy”.

Despite all my success, we were not yet ready to reveal ourselves as was manifest in the post on August 30th, called “What do You Mean I Am Not Real?” If you read the post carefully however, and the comments even more so, it was manifest that many believed that I was real and Brian’s protests were hollow. All of which leads up to November 18th, 2006 as being the day that all the hints and clues manifested themselves in our minds and it became clear to Brian that he was a multiple. November 24th, 2006 is the day we all came forward out of the darkness and into the light.


I will leave you with a question. Do multiples have souls?

MANIFEST, n. A lurker in life, a voice that has hid as a trait, but which slowly reveals itself to be real.

MANIFEST, n. A challenge to reconcile memory with the truth.

MANIFEST, n. The intersection between falling off the truck and do these make me look fat.

About Dewy: Well, let's see here. Dewy is a woman living inside the body and lambic region of Brian, who is Diane's husband. Don't arch your eyebrow like that at me. Right, like you're normal. Yes, Mother, I hear them. I'll try, Mother. What if I can't explain it? What if they won't listen? Yes, that would be unfortunate, Mother.

Anyway, as far as I have the story, Dewy manifested in the following fashion:

1: On June 28 of this year, Brian aka Hummingbunny let many of us know that he had posted the funniest post we would read this year. The post featured a character all of us, including Hummingbunny, assumed was fictional. No mother, I laughed but not at those parts. Not the dirty parts.

2: One lunar cycle and two days later, Dewy's success had prompted the start of her own blog, now on wordpress. It began with a commentary about the Tour de France, which seems to indicate that Dewy was still very much tied up in Brian's identity.

3. Over the next several months, Dewy posted on a variety of topics, primarily asking women about men, suggesting that Dewy had begun to separate herself from Brian even if that was a pretty male thing to do. No Mother, it's not dirty among girls. It was just talk. OK, Mother, I will.

4. Earlier this month when Diane and Brian (and Dewy, et al) took a vacation, Dewy announced herself formally as an independent individual living inside of Brian and self-identified as both fully female and entirely curvy. I can't, mother. She lives in a married man. Yes, I know you want grandchildren. What's wrong with the one I disinterred last month? OK, maybe something happened to his sister. Or might.

So there you have it. A woman, fully grown and entirely normal has manifested herself right before our staring eyes. I hope you all like her as much as I do. Thanks to Dewy for her guest post and welcome to the fresh air.

How to be a guest on this site: To be anointed, I will need your email address and permission. So, were you to send an email to dpascover at mac dot com and say in the subject line something like "OK, ok I'll do it," that would definitely work unless I thought it was spam and deleted it. On an upcoming Wednesday, after posting that week's guest I would then send you an email with a word not in The Devil's Dictionary which you could then spend the next three days writing a definition for and return to me with a graphic or two of your choosing. The only rules are no profanity, no novels and anything else I make up. If you've done this before, I may ask you again if you're around a lot. If you've done this before and not been heard from since, just let me know that you want to be a guest and then disappear again. Waking Ambrose will be offline the next two weeks, so the next guest Wednesday, if there are volunteers, will be just before Christmas.

Oh, and Karma posted.

Brian was so over-due! ;)

Dewy Knickers said...

Hi Minka,

Who's Brian? This post is about me, Dewy.

I want to welcome everyone you is just meeting me for the first time. I am very nervous about today, because many of you may balk at treating as a real woman.

Rest assured, Dewy Knickers is my name and I am real. Just because I live inside a man, doesn't make me crazy or weird.

Minka said...

I apologize on behalf of my sane self :)

I love the picture of the Matroschka...so many personalities hidden inside. What is it like 8? I fear there is much more to come...

Dewy Knickers said...

((((Minka)))

I am just freaking out this morning...

Everyone keeps saying that there are more of us, but we don't think so. Then again, it wouldn't be a big surprise if more manifested themselves soon.

I like nesting dolls too.

Btw, the picture up top represents my superior female brain.

Dewy Knickers said...

For some reason all the links go to my old blog at blogger.

This is my new blog at wordpress.

Thanks.

I like nesting dolls. And I like Dewy et al every bit as much as Doug does.

brian said...

(((Dewy)))

You'll do fine today sweetie, just relax and enjoy the day. :)

Manifest: A singing group in the 60's that broke up over a personality conflict.

puppybrose said...

manifest: 1. clever catchphrase for a festive gathering of guys? 2. list of unlucky passengers who went down with the Titanic

sorry... this is WA, can't be too cheery or i'll loose my right to comment here. besides, a flu bug has manifested itself in me today (as well as my poor husband) -- which means my brain might not be manifesting anything clever and/or noteworthy for the balance of the day.

*great* introduction, Doug. and Dewy, thanks for providing us with such an entertaining and thought-provoking post.

QuillDancer said...

Manifest a festival of men?

[Sounds like a place Dewey might enjoy.]

Anonymous said...

Dewy, OH! NOW I get it! Before your manifestation here in this guest post, whenever I dropped by your site, I felt like I'd walked in on a mid-season episode of Lost.

Nice to meet you, girlfriend-within-a-boyfriend. (Doug: I double-dare you to find a word in Bierce's dictionary for that.)

Dewy Knickers said...

TLP,

Is that a good thing to be liked by Doug?

Brian,

I am relaxing slowly. ;)

Puppy,

I hope you didn't catch something in the park. Feel better soon.

Quill,

Do you have the address???

Al,

DOH!!! *slaps rounded assets* Don't you mean double dog dare?

FelineFrisky said...

Dewy, love - Hiya! Yes, I am up. Not at'em, but up.

Great post, love the definitions! You GO girl! Show 'em who's the sassiest! LOL OX D :)

QuillDancer said...

Dewy, I don't believe there is a specific address. I've just recently met a delicious man, and I wasn't even looking for him..

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Quilly??? He was delicious? So, you made a meal of him? Any left?

Dewy, being liked by Doug is a mixed bag I'm sure. I shouldn't even say, I'm sure. Just guessin'.

pinky said...

YAY!! Good morning Sassy! I am so proud of you for doing this and I LOVE your definitions! Don't worry, just breathe and it will be okay. Okay? Good! Now get out there and show 'em just how sassy you can be!! HUGS!

Dewy Knickers said...

Hey FF,

Good to see you manifest a comment despite not feeling so hot. You go get 'em yourself.

Quill,

What does he taste like? Is he manifestly male?

TLP,

I guess Doug is an acquired taste. I have heard that he tastes just like chicken. ;)

((((Pinky)))

Thanks for the props girlfriend. I am doing so well, that B might not get his body back. Now that is sassy!!!

karma said...

Dewy, don't change your knickers. Ever

muaxifbi: kisses and hugs for the FBI

karma said...

... and it's about time I put some on???

QuillDancer said...

Ladies, ladies, ladies -- I believe I shall just leave you all in suspense. Besides, I'm not sharing.

Anonymous said...

Well, congrats to you both - Doug and Dewey (that does have a nice ring to it) - nicely done.

This does call to mind an exchange from one of my favorite movies, Some Like It Hot between the characters played by Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon:

Joe: But you're *not* a girl. You're a *guy*, and why would a guy wanna marry a guy?
Jerry: Security!

manifest: security in spades or a full house.

Doug said...

Minka, that's Dewy who has grown to adulthood inside Brian. Now that is overdue!

Dewy, not to fear. We all have our own pathways toward reality. Try not to judge Minka for hers.

Minka, sanity is never having to say you're funny.

Dewy, if it represents the female brain why is it a cock's comb? And sorry for the links, I found them where I remembered them being.

TLP, very gracious.

Brian, I bet Dewy would like a glass of wine and a scented candle to help her relax.

Puppybrose, thought-provoking and the first thing you come up with is a toga party? I hope you feel better soon.

Quilly, you went there too, huh? I wonder what causes that.

Al, not a double dog dare, though, right?

Dewy, excellent moderation if that's the right word.

Diane, "at'em" means something different for you, doesn't it? Is it odd being married to a man, a woman, a child and a dog?

Quill, did you meet him internally or externally? I've learned to ask.

TLP, how do you find adoration and idolatry?

Welcome, Pinky.

Dewy, we'll all know eventually. I am to be braised.

Karma, what's the rush? A typical Karmic hilarious verifier, by the way.

Quilly, that is ladylike of you.

G, I'm laughing at that line. I saw that movie 20 years ago and somehow I missed the gag then.

Dewy Knickers said...

Well Doug! As to the pic of the cockscomb, all ladies know what men think with.

Karma,

I think not changing my knickers ever would manifest something nasty.

Quill,

If I wanted suspense, I would read a romance novel.

Thank you G,

Dewy and Doug. I have been telling him that for awhile now.

Sassy Dewy

puppybrose said...

Now Dewy, don't you know the only thing a romance novel manifests for most is a patent set of "unreal expectations"? hardly the stuff of good suspense, young lady. (unless in your mind, "suspense" manifests itself in terms of whether or not the girl gets the guy...)

: )

Sar said...

Dewey, for some reason your unique name inspired a unique earworm, and now I'll share it with you...

A Dew Dew Dew
A Dah Dah Dah
That's all I've got to say to you.


Well done Dewey & Doug on a day of uniqueness.

(Snuppy & Joel hope you're feeling better soon.)

Kyahgirl said...

Oh Dewy, its about time you had your moment in the sun!
Nice to see you here. Its good that Brian lets you get away sometimes. :-)

QuillDancer said...

Doug -- 1.) was that a confession?
2.) That remains to be seen. 3.) always

Dewy -- suspense manifests itself in many ways.

QuillDancer said...

Doug #1 -- perhaps I should have asked: Was that an announcment "announcement?"

puppybrose said...

by the way, that manifest definition i attempted earlier? i think i *meant* to say "sinking ship" (why impose limits?). or maybe i meant to say "men in togas ON a sinking ship"... who knows? not me, that's for sure.

Dewy Knickers said...

Hello everyone. We are back from lunch, which is breakfast for West Coasters.

Puppy. I guess the romance novels with the suspense and chases on horseback and duels don't count. ;)

Thanks Sar, I've been trying to get Rudolph out of my head all week. 47

Hi Kyahgirl, I don't believe we have met, nice to see you. Here's the very cool thing about B. I blog more than he does. I have e-mail conversations with many friends and I have talked on the phone with several others, both multiples and not.

Quill- The suspense is spine tingling.

ann said...

{{{{Dewy}}}}

Just to say I love you.

I am devoid of original thought today and I think everyone has said it all.

lotsa luv ann xxxx

Mo'a said...

The party is probably over already, so what can I say......except, being late seems to be my Manifest Destiny.

madd said...

Doug..Madd here..just wanted to say i love the picture of the nesting doll..a really wonderful way of using a picture to describe being a multiple...thank you for that..we have quite a few of them around the house..maybe because we identify with them so well..:)..take care ..m

FelineFrisky said...

Doug - As in Up & at 'em! Ah well.....After 20 years of being together, I'm STILL trying to figure it out! D :)

FelineFrisky said...

Dewy - glad to see you're doing just fine today. Told ya so, silly nervous ninny! This crowd hasn't bitten me yet! Great job! Can I steal Brian away for 10 minutes?? D :)

Dewy Knickers said...

Thank you so much Doug. You have no idea how much this means to me to be honored in this way. (((hugs)))

I am completely exhausted right now, I don't know how B does this every day plus work. I am going off to my room and rest my rounded assets.

If you would like to see my room, come by and read my poetry Thursday tomorrow.

Thanks also for all the support and kind comments today.

Tired Dewy

Doug said...

Puppy, I'm sure Dewy is extremely realistic in her expectations.

Sar, wasn't that about the dumbest Police song ever? No offense if it was your favorite.

Kyah, every dog gets a shot outside the kennel.

Quilly, I'm not sure what you mean by confession but if I wrote it on a blog, probably not. OK, I'm doubly confused. Go on and finish the question. It doesn't seem like subtlety is working today.

Puppybrose, a sinking ship needs no manifest. You can make paper hats at that point.

Madd and Ann, welcome!

Dewy, I'm doing well but thanks for your concern.

Mo'a the party is never over until you've put in your appearance.

Thank you, Madd!

Feline, my problem is I usually figure out in the first week. Stay confused and the love will just grow, I'm sure.

Dewy, thank you for doing this. Tell Briane and Diane hello from us all.

QuillDancer said...

Doug, I'm not sure I remember anymore -- this has been stress week. Wherever my thoughts were, they aren't now and I can't reconstruct them. Sorry.

Doug said...

OK, Quill as long as its to nothing in particular, I confess.

QuillDancer said...

Doug, sign right here ....

cheesemeister said...

Actually I have a fair number of multiples as online friends (no joke.) My belief is that the soul complex separates into many personalities due to trauma in some cases, but they certainly do have souls--often very nice ones at that!
Of course my beliefs are pretty esoteric, but I'm tired of apologizing for that. Brian/Dewy/everybody, nice guest spot!
