Happy Holidays: Eating Tips To Ignore

25 Nov

 

The holidays are upon us… actually, they are in our face.

Holiday Advice Food Humor

There is a ton of advice out there on how not to overeat on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and every other holiday you can imagine.

Tips like, “NO seconds,” “Drink ONLY water,” “During your meal, go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and guilt yourself about how many calories you’re taking in,” “Fill up on celery and radishes – stay away from the dip,” and “Do planks and push-ups between courses.”

Pull-ease! Gratification is the whole point.

I’ve Got Balls Yes I Do

12 Jun

 

Why, yes, I’ve got balls. Do you have balls?

Life can be tough. We all need them.

May I recommend?

Balls to relax us when we are stressed… which for some of us is much of the time.

Balls for a gratitude squeeze. “Life Is Good” Think of it as a hand hug. […]

Do The Thanksgiving Math

20 Nov

 

Home Is Where The Wine Heart Is

Thanksgiving = 2 Much Food 4 Most Every 1

From The New York Times by Tara Parker Pope:

“The commonly cited statistic is that the average American will consume more than 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day alone. That’s according to the Calorie Control Council,”

Calories Schmalories!  Who’s counting anyway?

SO GLAD I REFUSE TO BE AVERAGE!!!  4500 calories?  Sum 1 isn’t trying very hard!

* Happy Thanksgiving to all *

Boo! Who’s Your Dog Gonna Be for Halloween?

25 Sep

BarbBestHumor

Ain’t I sassy?

 

Before the charcoal on the Labor Day barbecue grill cools, we are bombarded by… ARRGH!

HALLOWEEN.

Orange and black invade the retail world. Pumpkins, creepy decorations, and a zillion bags of over-priced CANDY block the aisles of every store – including the pet store.

Which brings us to the burning question – who’s your dog gonna be for Halloween?

And when did dogs start wearing Halloween costumes anyway?

Do they even like dressing up? (I thought that was more of a cat thing.)

Will Lucky really feel deprived if he misses out on all the Halloween fun – the sugar high, the gobbling of chocolate bars with wrappers, the neighbor’s bullhorn, the vomiting, being freaked out by the Doberman donning the tutu and fake eyelashes?

Is your dog going “trick or treating?”

Do I need to have special doggie treats on hand?

And how will I explain this canine indulgence to my cat?

What do you think? Please advise 🙂

National Humor Month

5 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 the 36th Anniversary

of 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?”

What is your favorite holiday?
