Hello Again! Make Me Laugh Monday! April 20, 2009

Have you been wondering what happened to me???

I had a spring break visitor and then I went out of town for a few days and then I took a media break.

I will tell you more about all that later, but today is Make Me Laugh Monday at Jenny on the Spot.

This YouTube video (Thanks Heather) made me smile until I was laughing and full of joy. It comes from Belgium and I wish I had been there to jump in!

Happy Monday! Now run along to see who else shared a funny at Jenny On the Spot!

Luck of the Irish to Ya! March 17, 2009

Filed under: silliness,Uncategorized — meandmom @ 4:23 pm

An Irish man goes to the pub one day and orders three pints of Guinness. He takes sips from each glass until they are empty and asks the bartender for three more. The bartender says, ‘I can bring ya 3 more but wouldn’t you rather I bring them one at a time so they stay cold?”

‘Nah…’ the man says, ‘ I’d rather ya bring three at a time.  Me and my two brothers used to meet at a pub and drink. Now one is in Australia, the other in Canada and I’m here. We agreed before we split up that we’d drink to each other’s honour this way.’

‘Well,’ says the bartender, ‘that’s a great sentiment.  I’ll bring the 3 pints right away.’

As the days go by, the bartender and the regulars get accustomed to the tradition.  One day the man comes in and orders only two pints. The pub gets quiet. Everyone figures something happened to one of the brothers.  With a heavy heart, the bartender brings the two pints and says, ‘Here are your pints. Let me offer my sincerest condolences. Do ya mind me askin’ what happened?’

The  man looks puzzled for a moment, and then starts laughing.

‘Oh, no! ‘Tis nothing like that.  I’ve given up drinking for Lent!’

An Old Irish Blessing
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Happy St. Patricks’ Day

Make Me Laugh Monday – Mammograms March 16, 2009

Not that Mammograms are particularly funny in and of themselves….BUT….

My mom and I were discussing mine while she visited from Cali this past weekend.  We were gathered around the kitchen island and the girls and the SO were hangin’ with us.   This is a snippet of the conversation:

Littlest: Mama, why do they call it a Mammogram?

S.O.: (completely serious) Because women are called Ma’am.

WHAT? Oh yes he did!

Now….pop on over to Jenny on the Spot for more Monday laughter!

Hey Cookie! Let’s Do-Si-Do March 5, 2009

I found a cute idea out in blogland today.  I went over to Blogthings.com to take a quiz to find out what kind of Girl Scout Cookie I was!  I’m rather pleased with my results!

You should do it too and then let me know what kind of cookie you are!

You Are Peanut Butter Sandwiches / Do-si-dos

You are easy going and naturally happy. You don’t need a lot to make you smile.
You genuinely care about people and are a great friend. You’re always doing your best to make the world a better place.

Even though there isn’t an immature bone in your body, you still are like a big kid sometimes.
Why make life complicated when the best parts are actually quite simple? You enjoy the small joys of life.

A friend of mine posted this on her wall last week.  It makes me laugh right before I start thinking maybe I’m being an idiot by being sucked in by the almighty FaceBook.  I can’t help though….it’s too addicting.  After you watch this, go over to Jenny on the Spot for more funny.

I never get tired of these two. Jemaine and Bret are two comedic folk singers from New Zealand (I think that’s how they describe themselves). They are hysterical….plus this song has my favorite name it in!

Enjoy the video and have a happy Monday. Oh….and when you are done watching this…head over to Jenny on the Spot for more Monday silliness.

Swirling, Whirling, Knitting February 12, 2009

There have been many deep thoughts whirling and swirling through my little pea brain lately.

Thoughts about life and love and motherhood.  Thoughts about my journey….where I started….where I went…..where I’m going.

I am going to try to get all those thoughts all gathered up nice and pretty and write them down.  Right at this moment they are a little overwhelming.

So, in the meantime, I am so proud of The Daughter.  She has taken after my mother’s talent for knitting.  She just finished her third scarf and is hoping that she will be receiving yarn for her birthday…..which by the way is tomorrow!

Be sure to pop back by and wish her a great day.

Below is a picture of The Dog (Kona) modeling one of the latest scarf creations.  Why do people always ask if she is a Chocolate Lab when we are out with her?  Isn’t it clear she is a German Sheppard?  Maybe that little bit of Chihuahua is throwing people off…..IDK….more deep thoughts to ponder.
