General Hilarity

I love to laugh. I think everyone should have at least one good belly-laugh every single day. So today's post is going to be things I found funny enough to use my belly-laugh on. They may or may not be funny to you, because, well you know, sometimes you just have to be there. But here goes.

This past weekend, I was hanging out with my brother and sister-in-law and another sister-in-law. I was with relatives, sheesh. Both SIL's who were there are super-skinny, and I think we've all established that I'm not. So they know I'm doing the Biggest Loser thing at school--I interrupt this for a public service announcement: I lost 4 pounds last week. Did I tell you I was going to kill this thing?--and they were telling me about the exercise they do.

One SIL then said, "I love raisin bars. I have some for breakfast, some for lunch, and then a sensible dinner. It's like the Slim-Fast plan, only different."

I lost it. My belly-laugh was way too loud. It was just soo funny. In case you don't know what raisin bars are, think of raisin-filled cookies with no top crust. See? Carb-counters of the world, you could be on the raisin bar diet.

Then we started playing Wizard. It's this card game sort of like hearts. The same SIL goes, "So I have to play...(looks around the table)...clovers?"

I was like, "Um, they're called clubs." Spew!

These things may have been funny because I was on my second Mucinex pill of the day. I don't know, but I seriously could not stop laughing.

My SIL's are my favorite people. On to something different. In a forum I participate in, we were discussing which word to use for something, I can't even remember what. The choices came down to "with" or "using". The general consensus came to "using." One lady posted, "I like using too. *snort*"

That caused a fit of online giggling, rolling on the floor laughing, and other general mayhem. It was FUN-nee.

I'm gonna go confessional on you now. I love reality TV. I even DVR'ed "America's Toughest Jobs" and it should have been called "America's Dumbest Show." I watched almost to the end. Anyway, so we're watching American Idol this week. My husband says, "Is that an apron Paula's wearing?" I almost died laughing. Let me see if I can find a pic. I can't. Oh well. It was the black, sparkly one that really did look like an apron. Very funny.

That's all I can think of right now. But I'm going to have a funny contest on my blog this week...get ready to use those weird and wonky words you've been seeing around...while commenting...sengihnampakgigi

Too funny! Glad to know I'm one of your favorite people. I'm on the leftover chocolate cake plan, chocolate cake for breakfast, chocolate cake for lunch . . . you know the rest.

Your first funny reminded me of a conversation I had with DH recently. He's been trying to do a low-carb diet, so he doesn't eat hardly any carbs during the day. So at the end of the day when we sit down to watch TV, he loses his control and eats a bunch of carbs. So because he knows he has no self-control at night, he stays /really/ strict during the day.

I told him his diet was the "an Atkins shake for breakfast, an Atkins shake for lunch, and gorge yourself on anything you want at night." :D Funny thing is, he lost about 15 lbs on that plan. LOL!

There's nothing funny about my word today. Sorry. LOL

Oh yeah baby, bring it ON. I don't get to laugh nearly enough. Oh girly girl, not ENOUGH!

I missed crit group last time just because I LOVE the way you guys make me laugh.

Anyhooo ...

Here's my contribution.

Never take me to a funny movie. Because I will laugh along with everyone else but then just as we're all dying down and just watching the movie again, I'll have this little instant replay thing and laugh AGAIN at the thing and invariably it comes out as a SNORT.

Oh yeah and that gets some laughs.

All I can say is that it's a darn good thing the theaters are dark and my giggles and snorts are just disembodied somethings from somewhere out there.


Oh and p.s. my word verification is HORABLE.

tee hee
