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.

 

  • My favorite holiday is any day I can make a trip to the cemetery to visit loved ones.

 

  • As a toddler, I was once left on the top of the family car, fell off when my parents sped off, and was mistaken for roadkill. Talk about the terrible twos.

 

  • I have never colored my hair fuchsia, chartreuse, or berry blue.

 

  • Not only do I not smell the roses, I’m allergic to the roses. I avoid them at all costs.

 

Remember to be fun – if not wild and crazy 🙂

Wishing you a Fun, Fun, Fun Summer!

 

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 🙂

  •  It’s a bad sign when your husband keeps a jug of antifreeze and an eye dropper in the kitchen.  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.

April is National Humor Month

10 Apr

 

I love holidays. They have the power to distract from the humdrum that is perhaps  99.9999% of our lives.

Take a regular, run-of-the-mill day or month, proclaim it a holiday, and presto – it’s special. It instantly becomes blog fodder, a popular theme for school activities, a reason to party, and a barrel of marketing opportunities.

In case you missed it,

April is National Humor Month

National Humor Month

 

“National Humor Month was founded in 1976 by best-selling humorist Larry Wilde, Director of The Carmel Institute of Humor. It is designed to heighten public awareness on how the joy and therapeutic value of laughter can improve health, boost morale, increase communication skills and enrich the quality of one’s life.”

It is fitting that April, the clammy month that begins with a spirit of play on April Fool’s Day and includes the dreaded April 15th, Tax Day, celebrate comic relief.

Research studies claim the physical, psychological, and social benefits of humor are tremendous. But have you heard the latest – that humor is an aphrodisiac?

Zoosk “National Humor Month” Survey Finds Humor is An Aphrodisiac – MarketWatch.

“Is that a joke or are you just glad to see me?”

 

National Humor Month

No joke!

April is National Humor Month.

It’s a great month for the inspiring and fun Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, the premier workshop for humor writers. It is held at Erma’s alma mater, The University of Dayton. I was honored to be a judge in their writing competition this year. How cool is that?

There’s a lot of funny out there!

Also, April is a perfect time for AATH – the Association of Applied Therapeutic Humor to hold their annual conference.  Info here

AATH’s mission is to serve the community of professionals who study, practice, & promote healthy humor & laughter. Lots of laughter, learning, and love with this group. […]

A Message From Your CAT

28 Mar

 

This is a message (heh, a threat you say?) from me, your imperious cat.

CATastrophe

Planning on leaving me (your cherished feline pet) at home while you go on a business trip or (how dare you) a fancy vacation is a provocation at best, and, at worst, an act of war.

Vacation? A Message from Your Cat

    Do I look pleased?

 

May I remind you… Actions have consequences!

A Bucket List for the Burned-Out

17 Mar

 

Feeling weary? Tired? Burned-Out?

If you don’t have a case of Vitameatavegamin or Red Bull handy to give you an energy boost, try revising your bucket list DOWN. This will likely reduce that intense pressure and fatigue that you feel.

Feeling listless? Here’s a list!

A Bucket List for the Burned-Out

  • Savor success by facing your fears head on. Yes! Clean out that crazy ass kitchen drawer – you know the one.

 

  • Empower yourself. Learn to set the digital clock on the car – before it’s time to fall back and spring forward again.

 

  • Empty the crumb tray in the toaster. Should be done once in your lifetime.

Food 4 Thought: Who’s Hungry?

10 Mar

We sit too much. We’ve got to stand for something, don’t you agree?

I am con chile con carne. Don’t want to feel the burn.

I am pro prosecco. Loving the bubble tickle.

From England. Best thing since light-up tweezers! Prosecco gummies […]
