Imagine the comedy caper in “Some Like It Hot“+ the free spirited abandon of “Arthur” + the comic chaos of “Spice World” – all served in a vintage champagne.

Think Lucy and Ethel on steroids.

Why I Haven’t Responded to Your Email in 2 Weeks

12 Jul

 

So much email, so little time.

Why Haven’t I Returned Your Email in 2 Weeks?

Procrastination is not personal.

Trust me. It’s not you, it’s me.

Sometimes it’s just difficult to conjure up the same sense of urgency to email responses than I have for, say, attending a family funeral or watching the Wimbledon finals.

I know you understand ’cause you haven’t returned my emails either πŸ™‚

Other Reasons for My Slow Email Responses

  • Memory clutter. Hiring a cleaning crew to come in and dust my dendrites.

 

  • Lost in the throes of a summer romance with frozen Yasso Greek Yogurt Coffee Chocolate Chip bars.

 

  • Addled and anxious – due, no doubt, to way too many fizzy drinks.

 

  • Been immersed in my adult coloring class.

 

  • Busy dealing with visual stress caused by friends’ joyous European vacation photos posted on Facebook

 

  • It’s hook-up night at the nursing home.

 

  • Procrastinator privilege.

Summer Fun: You’re All Wet

1 Jul

 

Summer Fun = Playing in Water

A few thoughts on Water Fun

 

  • The wacky noodle water toy is neither an effective weapon nor a successful flotation device. However, it makes a tasty appetizer for sharks. BTW… you are the main course.

 

  • A life vest is not slimming.Β  If you wear one, you will resemble a pregnant marshmallow. However, it beats getting all wet and drowning in the ocean.

FUN MOVIE: “Alice Through the Looking Glass!”

22 Jun

 

LOOKING for a FUN movie?

LOOK no further than Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” – the sequel to the blockbuster film “Alice in Wonderland.”

The combo of live-action and animation, exciting visual effects, adventure, surreal set design, fun characters, and lighthearted wordplay creates an amusing entertainment that’s hard to resist.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Homeward Bound, Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent) crafted an intriguing tale (loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There”) featuring a strong, independent Alice and your favorite witty characters from “Alice in Wonderland.”

You’ll love the clever humor, plus the puns and quips about “time.”

“Alice Through the Looking Glass!” is like a fun party we’re all invited to…

now, that’s my cup of tea πŸ™‚ […]

Expiration Dates on Food Labels Kill Me

Fun? Are You FUN? A QUIZ

26 May

 

Are you any FUN?

FUNBarbBestHumor

Or are you too busy? Do you forget to be playful?

Gee, quizzes are really fun, don’t ya think?

This one’s for you.

True or False?

  • I do not whistle while I work. I do not whistle while I play. Heck, not even when I shower.

 

  • I enjoy shopping for athletic socks, Q-Tips, and emergency kits. Whoopee!

 

  • My dog won’t play with me. Apparently the snooty cat is more fun.

 

  • Sadly, I do not own a set of marshmallow roasting forks, let alone use them on a regular basis.

 

  • The only party I’ll go to is a pity party. And, yes I’ll cry if I want to.

 

  • My idea of a vacation is four days at the hospital for elective gall bladder surgery.

Bellyache: Guess Who Came To Dinner

13 May

 

In a perfect world…

You would not celebrate your birthday at a trendy Euro-Asian restaurant touted for it’s delicious, yet healthy dishes and end up in the emergency room 9 hours later with food poisoning. You would not require an I.V.with anti nausea, anti diarrhea, anti pain meds to stop the total body torture.

 

Uninvited: Guess Who Came To Dinner

 

In a perfect world…

You would not cook that special recipe for the in-laws – Quinoa Masala Royale – using infected organic vegetables. Later that evening, our family members would not all coincidentally experience unbearable abdominal cramps normally associated with childbirth. After all, you are a lousy cook, but not that lousy.

In a perfect world…

Our food would make us well, not sick.

What I Learned This Week

21 Apr

 

We are always learning – perhaps not always remembering – but always learning.

I learned some interesting things this week that I will share with you.

I go through the pain so you don’t have to πŸ™‚

BarbBestHumor

 

  • Β It’s a bad sign when your husband keeps a jug of antifreeze and an eye dropper in the kitchen.Β  Hint: Get a food tester. (Forensic Files)

 

  • When flying, your carry-on luggage should never weigh more than twice your body weight – unless you are on steroids.

 

  • It can be very expensive to wait for a flight out of McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. Flashing slot machines are as enticing as the seductive aroma of Cinnabon.
