May I Suggest a New Hobby?

May I suggest a new hobby?

 

New Hobby Barb Best Humor

 

These are a few hobbies I’m seriously considering…

Sleep Eating

Sleep can be oh so boring, so what better way to liven it up? Go on a groggy 2:00 a.m. binge with a banana bundt cake or a bucket of fried chicken – all without the guilt. Sleep eating combines two of my favorite activities… sleeping and eating!

Competitive dog grooming

It’s also pet therapy. Everyone gets a sloppy kiss. Also a few bites and scratches.

Ramen Noodle Sculpture

Remember – don’t overcook the noodles! Caution: This hybrid hobby is for advanced foodies and skillful platers only. Floppy noodles are unhappy noodles.

Exotic Pet Photography

Beware – this activity includes pets of all stripes and spots… snakes, rats, baboons, an occasional tarantula or two.

Extreme Travel

More than a relaxing hobby – it’s a death wish. Bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge into the crocodile-filled Zambezi river, swimming with the sharks and piranha in the Pantanal wetlands, hang gliding in Antarctica. These excursions are not for the delicate or your average chicken sh*t tourist.

Cookie Dough Carving

More fun than carving soap, plus we can eat our artistic masterpieces as we go. Eatable art – just what the world needs! Phooey on finger paints. Try Pudding Paints! Mmm. Finger lickin’ good.

The Chinese Art of Bamboo Drifting

Hey, don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Beats pole dancing.

 

How To Have A Homicide-Free Holiday

22 Nov

 

Thanksgiving with the family?

We all agree a homicide-free holiday is nice.

Don't talk Politics

MY TIPS

  • Don’t talk politics.

 

  • Respect your family members’ feelings… even if they are obviously stupid, illogical, and batsh*t crazy.

 

  • Don’t talk politics.

 

  • Don’t attack siblings with your Bernie Sanders action figure… even though you feel like bludgeoning them to death.

 

  • Don’t talk politics.

 

  • Don’t rub your son’s face in your sweaty Trump “Make America Great Again” cap… even if he is a sore loser.

 

  • Did I say “Don’t Talk Politics?”

 

Peace.

Love.

Pecan Pie.

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!

 

 

 

 

 

News and You: It’s Time for An Intervention

News and Yous: It's Time for An Intervention

A News Intervention

Have you been overdosing on the news?  (Of course you have.)

Consuming media 24/7?  (You bet!)

Watching, reading, and listening to everything? (Oh, yeah.)

News and Yous: It's Time for An Intervention

Now that the election is over

Perhaps you need to go on an Information Diet, Internet Detox, or Facebook Cleanse?

If you are like me, you are ready for a strong bourbon and a boob massage about now.

The News and Yous: An Intervention

A break from the political BS and drama!

It’s high time for funny (is there any other kind?) cat videos and puppy therapy.

It’s time for holiday comfort food and spirituous libations.

It’s time for a HUMOR intervention.

 

Sleep is for the Single-Minded: Zzz

Sleep, where art thou?

 

ZZZZ! Sleep is for the Single

Why can’t you sleep?

ZZZ!

Help me please, I barely sleep a wink

And three a.m. is no time to think,

Could it be restless feet or something dumber

Forcing me to lose my beauty slumber?

Could it be the firmness of the bed

Or, I know, maybe it’s all in my head?

Hmm, all of this hyper diagnosis is boring

I can’t sleep ’cause my husband’s snoring!

MISCELLANEOUS TIP YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT

  • WHEN ORDERING AT A VEGAN RESTAURANT: Don’t order the lobster.

See you on Twitter or Facebook where nobody sleeps!

Stressed? 5 Reasons YOU Are Stressed Out

14 Oct

You are stressed out. You are worried. You are miserable.

You are not alone 😀

Barring a terrorist attack, cataclysmic global economic collapse, or tainted Halloween candy, October is usually a fairly innocuous month.

But not this October.

 

Stressed?

Squeeze!

Reason #1. Did you notice? UGH. It’s an election year.

Clown Hysteria: Why is Everybody DOWN on CLOWNS?

1 Oct

Don't talk Politics

Clowns

All the world apparently doesn’t love a clown.

Why the haters?

 

Clowns: Why is Everybody Down on Clowns?

 

It seems to be hip to see ALL clowns as “creepy” and zombies as cool.

It’s ironic that zombies streaked in blood and oozing death are deemed benevolent while goofy clowns donned in ginormous polka-dots are most likely evil.

Am I alone, but what’s not to love about red rubber noses, orange wigs, baggy pants, exaggerated make-up, and over-sized floppy shoes?

99.9999999999999999% of Hollywood – and everyone on TV – wears fake hair and too much make-up. So what?

For the record

My favorite zombie is “the tall mixed drink consisting of several kinds of rum, liqueur, and fruit juice.” […]

Comedy films with class and wit are hard to come by.

Comedy films that are about people and relationships? Scarce!

Comedies that don’t insult our intelligence by embracing the lowest common denominator of crass taste and stupidity? Rare! […]
