Barb Best Humor Blog Gratitude

What are you grateful for?

I’m grateful for Google

Everything I know, knew, never knew, and can’t remember – I learned on Google. […]

Summer Time and the livin’ is… easy?

Maybe if you ignore your mile-long “TO DO” List.

Chuck it – Yes! – Chuck that Summer Sand Bucket List!

My Summer “TO DO” List is starting to resemble my annual “New Year Resolutions.”

Not a bad time to recycle.

Freaky Friday

Jamie Lee Curtis – she’s the mother, she’s the daughter, she’s the mother in the daughter’s body, she’s the daughter in the mother’s body?  Whatever!  Gosh, role reversal comedies are confusing!

She jams at The House of Blues with your garage band, tells your creepy English teacher to take a hike, hops on a Harley for a love ride with the dreamy boy you’re bonkers about and smooches him good – even if it is with her lips, not yours!

Amy Poehler is alpha Plastic Regina George’s “cool mom” in Tina Fey’s screenplay.

What kind of mother flaunts her breast implants, talks trash with your gal friends and offers you an afternoon cocktail?

Hey, don’t judge – it keeps her feeling young! […]

Stir Crazy! Cabin Fever!

Prisoners of winter… I feel your pain.

The frigid weather is getting you down.

You are sick and tired of ice, sleet, snow, and single-digit temperatures.

One blizzard is a novelty; five is torture.

You may be going clinically stir crazy from being confined inside.

Feeling irritable, listless, achy, unproductive, homicidal?

More than usual, that is?

Your symptoms could be due to something totally unrelated:

PMS, hot flashes, African equine fever, tax time, or writer’s block.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (aka cabin fever, stir crazy, bonkers) is common… especially where the sun don’t shine – like the East Coast.

Let us diagnose you…

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE CABIN FEVER

  • You’re reading your friends’ blogs.
  • You’ve done so much online shopping – your mail carrier has a hernia.
  • The light on your cell phone screen doubles as a therapy light box. […]

Billy Wilder… You’ve got to love a guy whose gravestone reads: 

Billy Wilder's grave

Some of my favorite quotes are from the legendary film director and screenwriter Billy Wilder:

From Brainy Quote:

I’d worship the ground you walked on if only you walked in a better neighborhood.

If you’re going to tell people the truth, be funny or they’ll kill you.

If there’s anything I hate more than not being taken seriously, is being taken too seriously.

His films are classic. Witty, smart, cynical, sweet, humorous. […]
