I think I am a funny person*. Not funny Haha, she doesn't realize her skirt is tucked into her panty hose funny, but more like my mind is constantly making connections among things and once it finds a good one, I say it outloud. At times, this happens too quickly and I say something that should have been kept inside or something that is just too obscure and makes me sound weird. These are times when it's just me and the crickets.

I wish I was better at being funny in Blog Land. Maybe I should start doing more audioblogs where I capture my friends and I having full conversations of:

Serena: "abluba du dagabu?"

Allie: "Habby rubaghau diska"

Scarlet: "Ik! Rakabulabooo!"**

Because in writing it's not funny, it's just weird. But if you had been there when it happened? You would be laughing, too.

I'm going to go do more research at my favorite blogs that make me laugh on a regular basis: Dealing In Subterfuges, I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Wino, and Antedisestablishmentarianism. I admire their comedic writing. Shall we ever meet in person, though? Bring it!


*And modest, eh?

Thanks, Serena! I hope it didn't sound like I was looking for compliments.

You're funny in your writing! That one line about joining the witness relocation program (in your job post) was HEE-lar-ious! Made me literally laugh out loud.

I only hang out with the most hilarious of people. So that should say something, right?

that was one of the best conversations we ever had. good times, good times. It's like we were speaking in "word verification" language!

Smash- Yeah, sometimes it's funny to be, but I don't it won't be to others.

Pagan Marbury- Thanks! And I really didn't write this just to get people to say I'm funny, but I do appreciate it.

Laurie- Hahhaa, I'm glad I made you laugh:)

Pink Is Neat- I know, that was seriously comic genius.

Foerign languages are not to be laughed at, no matter how unusual they sound.

I understood all of that, by the way.

Wow, I'm honoured!

When we meet, you'll discover that my secret is to wear a honky big red nose and my pants outside my trousers. All the time.
