Pet Peeves and the Curmudgeonly Spirit

10 Sep

Curmudgeons are in a perpetual state of annoyance.

They cultivate their pet peeves wholeheartedly.

With art and age comes a greater license to voice such pained sentiments.

If you can kvetch in a funny way – it is a blessing to all.

In the spirit of the book by Joan Rivers I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me

And with tongue in cheek

My PET PEEVES… Stuff I Hate!

7 Signs Your Dog and Your Cat are Gifted!

12 Jul

Yippee! It’s a summer rerun 😀

Cats and dogs

have taken over the internet and social media. Their furry mugs are everywhere…  YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest. Today Wattpad – tomorrow the world.

There must be a reason for this. Maybe they are really smart?

Perhaps brighter than your average couch potato.

We humans are not always the sharpest swizzle sticks in the mini-bar drawer.

Skip I.Q. tests and tedious assessments. Cats and dogs can be identified as gifted by their families. Is your Monty or Muffy gifted?

Humoraholics Anonymous

23 Apr

You’re in the right place, friends.
This is the weekly meeting of HAHumoraholics Anonymous.
Welcome, all!
Well, I see many horrified new faces here tonight.
No fear. We have enough caffeine and sugar on the back table to blow your frazzled minds – and most likely feed a few additional addictions. Ha, Ha.
Sorry, I  joked in a compulsive way. I’m working on that. […]

Need Sleep? 7 MORE Tips!

27 Sep

 

We all need sleep. Especially before we die.  And when there’s nothing left to watch on TV or YouTube.

7 MORE Tips!

1 – Don’t eat an additional large meal after dinner or for two hours before going to bed. This will make your evening so boring, you’re more likely to nod off.

2 – Flush your cell phone down the toilet. I know… blasphemy!

3 –  Don’t let the cat nap during the day – at all.  This is a biggie. Perhaps caffeine in the catnip?

4 – A day chock full of multi-tasking can fray your nerves. Picture a pinball machine on steroids… that’s your brain. Chewing gum and (insert ONE activity) is the only good multi-tasking option.  (TIP: Chewing gum and flossing – not a good choice.)

5 – Family members can be noisy. Fake a business trip and go to a hotel.  This can prove to be expensive. […]

I Feel Your Back To School Pain

30 Aug

 

According to top Health and Wellness Coaches Debbie Schroeder and Lynn Smith in their report 10 ENERGY ZAPPERS and How To Eliminate Them,

“Watching TV can lead to fatigue. The rapid cuts and edits shift your orienting response into overdrive, which leads to fatigue.”  Phooey, I say!

What causes fatigue? Working a job in your kid’s classroom!

It’s elementary, my dear room mother

Dear Ms. Yokelclinger,

I’m happy as Planter’s Punch you are my kid’s teacher this year. I look forward to working like a dog breaking labor laws volunteering tirelessly in the classroom. After a seemingly endless summer keeping my kids entertained, hydrated, fed, culturally stimulated, lathered with sunscreen, and blooming like buttercups, I’m really thrilled to tears to be your complete and total slave parent helper.

Because I am deliriously dedicated to my child’s education, I will be on call 24-7 should you need anything. […]
