Meetings: Thoughts While Dozing at an HOA Meeting

1 Aug

Meetings

Can you die of boredom?

Death certificate will read: Cause of death – Meetings!

“She was hanging in there pretty well, but then a meeting did her in.”

Moi

Sure, I look alert and interested in this HOA meeting.

I’ll bet my faux expression of keen attention is fooling the overbearing board members and those oddly perky neighbors sitting next to me.

If it weren’t for the rampant yawns, the tears streaming down my face, and the occasional uncontrolled giggling – they’d have not a clue that I’m bored silly.

  •  OMG I’d rather be antiquing in Provence… or even Poughkeepsie.

Remember When There was NO Internet?

How did we survive without the internet?

And boy, were we dumb in 1994!

Hilarious…

 

 

Heck. We not only have the internet. We have Twitter!

Dear FOOD NETWORK

Dear Food Network
Dear Food Network,
Thank you for teaching my kids how to cook fancy schmancy.

The vast culinary knowledge they have acquired lounging in front of the TV and laptop (love your website) has raised the chow bar to quite a sophisticated level.

Unfortunately, they leave 99% of the actual cooking to moi.

I can no longer pawn turkey hot dogs, tuna sandwiches, or cans of noodle soup off as a meal. […]

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. […]

What I Learned In 2013

26 Dec

Life is a teaching moment. Or a learning moment. Whatever. I feel your pain.

Here’s what I learned in 2013:

  • Do NOT purchase a dining table on the internet. Not unless you and the family enjoy the novelty of Thanksgiving Dinner picnic-style on the living room floor with the pets.
  • “Try yoga. I hear that helps!” is the new “Take two aspirin and call me in the morning.” […]

Here is an entertaining interview After The Show did with the FUNNY & CHARMING Food Network star Chef Damaris Phillips.

Enjoy!

I caught up with Chef Damaris Phillips, star of Food Network’s new show Southern at Heart and the winner of last season’s Food Network Star.

Damaris shares her take on the relationship between food and music, her favorite Louisville bands and venues, and the best Taylor Swift karaoke songs.

Damaris Phillips

After The Show: Do you ever listen to music while cooking? Would you recommend that people use music as a way to enhance the cooking experience?

Damaris: When I am throwing a party, I always listen to pop music of today OR the ’90s. I like to dance around the kitchen singing and gearing up for fun. For mass quantity of cooking, I’m going modern country, not too loud, but perfect for singing along and breaking up the monotony.   <MORE… CLICK HERE>

I Feel Your Pain

20 Sep

 

Barb Best Humor Blog

 

PAIN. Can’t live with it, can’t live without it.

Pain, of course, is entirely relative.

PAIN – THE NOUN

1) A feeling of marked discomfort, a distressing sensation in a particular part of the body: “She has severe pains in her arse, most probably due to sitting at the computer/at work/in the car all day.”

“Jury duty can be quite a pain in the neck.”

“Her boss gives her the most excruciating pain in her head and eyeballs.”

2) Mental suffering or distress : “During the holidays, I am plagued by the pain of listening politely to relatives pontificate on politics, religion, and reality TV.” […]

Oh, yeah. Dick Van Dyke. Mary Tyler Moore. Carl Reiner. Rose Marie. Morey A.
In the old days when TV was on a TV set, not your laptop.
