Sometimes I try to be funny. I like to think I’m good at making people laugh, but who doesn’t??
My sense of humor can be dark, satirical, biting, and sometimes I’m just plain silly.
We started these top ten lists in high school. They weren’t meant to be funny or sarcastic, but of course I made it that way. So here’s an example of the jokes I make. May it make you laugh or at least chance a flicker of movement in your lips that somewhat resembles a smile.
Top Ten Reasons People Welcome Global Warming:
- “Pale” went out of style fifty years ago.
- Boots are no longer made for snow-wear.
- Bathing suits are cheaper than winter jackets.
- Heat is expensive.
- Frost bite is more serious than global flooding.
- We’ve already invented life vests.
- Titanic fans run a very convincing anti-glacier campaign.
- Skin cancer is curable.
- The human race is indestructible.
- If Earth is destroyed we could totally move to Mars or something.
I have shared a few pictures of my two cats, Garfield and Elphaba, and quite honestly I’m surprised it hasn’t been more. My phone has over a thousand pictures and 95% of them are animals. This is a special occasion though, and one I could not resist to share with the world.
I bought Elphaba a cat leash!
She is always trying to sneak outside, but our cats are indoor only and I don’t really believe in her capabilities to survive in the outside world (sorry Elf!). Of course I have a huge soft spot for my furry friends so I try to make them happy however I can. Here are some pictures from our adventures!
Garfield would not go near the leash and I think he was offended I even suggested it. Instead he opted to glare angrily from the window as Elphaba explored the great outdoors.
I love my kitties! 🙂
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted one of these, and that’s because Scott stumped me and I refused to go out of order! The original idea was that I would pick one lesson from each pet I have owned. I just could not decide what lesson to pluck from living with Scott. I thought maybe humor because he was such a funny character he always made everyone laugh. Now, I’d just like to tell his story, and maybe by the end I’ll narrow down one word like forgiveness or patience (from part 1 and 2)…and maybe I won’t. :p
I did it! I completed the A to Z Challenge. I think I blogged for maybe a week before it started, so this has really been my introduction to WordPress. The challenge definitely provided motivation for writing, and it introduced me to a lot of new bloggers that inspire and motivate me further.
X is hard. I haven’t been to a place that starts with X, at least that I can think of. So instead I’m going to share pictures of my pets that are “X-rated”. THEY AREN’T REALLY DON’T GET SCARED.
See the featured image for what Garfield normally looks like. He just got brought to the groomer. Some might call him…naked.
FINALLY getting around to ending this epic saga… 🙂 Check out Part 1 and Oregon: Part two! if you haven’t already! And here’s a quick refresher: We left off with my parents now missing for two days and we still had no contact with them. Our decision was to wait until a set time the next day and then head to a ranger station if they didn’t turn up.
When my family took a vacation in Washington to hike the Wonderland Trail (which I am super excited to write about for W!) my parents wanted to include a trip to Vancouver Island in Canada to visit one of their friends.
We were told what a great time we would have because it would be on the beach and it was a very beautiful place. This is what convinced us to take the 13 hour drive from my uncle’s house in Washington to Vancouver Island (not that my siblings and I really had a say anyway).
When we arrived it was bitter cold, windy and rainy. Our 13 hour drive led us to this:
In my C is for California post I talked about how Kevin’s family and I snuck his pug Shy Ann into a hotel via travel bag. Part of the same vacation we visited a dog beach in San Diego because we thought Shy Ann would like that. Thus, an epic romance unfolded…
If you missed the first post or just want a refresher go here: O is for Oregon.
When we last left off I was just waking up and foolishly thinking the “Oregon Bear” had stolen our food. After my sister mocked me for a bit she went back to sleep a bit more, but I knew I couldn’t sleep with the cold and the pain from my feet.
Really this story took place in Montreal, but that’s in the Quebec province so it still counts!
In 2007, my family took a vacation in Canada. We went in April and it was right around Easter time. We did a lot of shopping, saw some cool museums, and, of course, visited Tim Horton’s. But the most memorable day in Canada was actually on Easter.
