Need a Laugh? Yeah, me too

Seriously. You have like a 1 in 24 chance of winning. Enter by Midnight tonight!

-------------------------------------

Man, I need a laugh. This week, my first working from home for longer than a day or two in over a year, was like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube. So, I go to my old standby: Ruminations. Check out the site, worth the time.

  • You don't have to keep telling me, "Dude, I'm so drunk." I know what drunk looks like and you're not it. See Phil over there hitting on the coat rack? That's drunk.
  • There are officially too many places for me to have a status
  • I don't know about everyone else, but if I "lived each day as if it were my last" I'd probably be in jail right now.
  • Coconuts are God's cruel joke for shipwrecked sailers. "Here's some food. All you have to do is shinny up that 50 foot tree, crack open 2 husks, and then attempt to scrape the meat out with no knife. Good luck, f*cker."
  • How come breakfast is the only meal without dessert? Maybe I want a heaping bowl of ice cream after my eggs or a piece of chocolate cake after my cereal. I do it anyway, but I'd prefer the social norms to back me up here.
  • My favorite part about winter is all the sexual innuendo during weather forecasts. "We're going to get pounded hard tonight by eight inches. Expect it to last all night and be prepared for a whiteout in the morning." Giggity...
  • Rocking a killer hangover at work after drinking 3 beers with dinner the night before, I refuse to accept "getting older" or "low tolerance" as valid explanations. No, no I was clearly roofied. Yes, at The Cheesecake Factory.

Finally, for Funny Foto Friday I decided to post a picture that is less funny and more cool. Look closely you crazy triathletes. In fact, this one is so cool, I'm going to site the source - Details magazine online in an article about how Triathlon is the new status symbol. Interesting read.

A lot of directions to take these bullets... but I'll just say the wind this winter has really whipped us into submission.

Great - now I have to start doing Triathlons to maintain my status. Fokk that!

hahahaha...giggity. That's like my favorite word EVER. Love me some Quagmire.

That's so weird. I did get pounded last night by a few inches. All of them cold and wet.

You are pretty funny I must say.

Too funny. Keep it...I am still spent from this weekends events, but I kept it up. :)

Get your minds out of the gutter...I am talking about the 50 mile ultra I ran this past weekend. :)

Funny... But I can't buy into that whole no desert for breakfast...

That guy must have never heard of: Blueberry pancakes with extra syrub, waffles with whipped cream on top, donuts, pastries, coffecake, and don't get me started on sugary breakfast cereals; Coco-Cisies (even the milk turns chocolate), Lucky Charms (sugar + marshmellows), and of course Cookie Crisps (come on it has cookies right in the name! Its basically equal to eating a giant bowl of cookies drowned in milk)

Giggity giggity...best show to watch on your trainer. I have my DVR tape Family Guy on TBS every night, so I always have a stock of about 10 episodes to watch when Spinervals start to bore me...

Another status symbol I am not yet able to attain. Sigh. Cool picture though. Thanks for the funnies and Have a great weekend!

Jill said...

I think breakfast IS dessert for many...can you say donuts?? And ewwww about Adam (Floridian) comment - I've known him too long to want to hear that from him. hahah. jk! I'm still sick and am home yet again today and bored out of my skull and super whiny so I may sit here and type for eternity - and I may even enter your little contest, though I never win. And THAT was the best whine yet!

The word Giggity makes me cringe. Rumor has it that my crew coach is the person that Quagmire is based on (he was college roommates with Seth McFarland, etc). I'm sure you can imagine our early morning practices were, well, something.

Thanks Adam, I needed that:) I had a crappy few days and you seem to be a good guy to have around!! Thanks for making me smile...have a great weekend!!

I'll have to check out ruminations more often. Maybe at work. Since now that you have the new URL, your blog is blocked! :(

I'm not sure if it's the "Boring" or "Runner" part that my gym's internet browser is alarmed by.

Maybe boring sounds too sedentary? Ha. Like THAT describes you.

Gosh, I love Aaron Karo!!! Thanks for posting some new ones :)
