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.

Cookie Controversy – Toss Those Cookies

Wrong!  Wrong!  Wrong!

Stress Relief Tips for the Slightly Miserable

I feel your pain.

Barb Best Humor Stress-Relief Tips

Stress and anxiety are rampant.

Millions of Americans are experiencing “voter stress.”

Many of our fellow citizens are plagued by horrifying “OMG! Summer is almost over!” panic attacks. At our local schools, grief counseling will be offered to all students and teachers in dealing with this tragedy.

Cats everywhere are tormented by “whisker fatigue” and “feline acne” caused by eating from  non-ergonomic feeding bowls.

I ask you… is there no end to the agony and suffering?

7 Quick Stress-Relief TIPS

  • Get yourself a “support monkey” – seriously, what could be more fun? A barrel of support monkeys?

Deep Summer thoughts while contemplating the sand between my toes

  • Do we really need Canine Intelligence Tests? This doggie competition has gone too far – I saw a “My Border Collie is smarter than your Cocker Spaniel” bumper sticker on a tricycle. Can’t we all agree? Dog breeds… they are ALL gifted.

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 🙂

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.
