Make 'em Laugh!

I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose. ~ Woody Allen

Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails. What puts man in a higher state of evolution is that he has got his laugh on the right end. ~ Max Eastman


I love to laugh. I have a strange sense of humor, so it's not always easy to make that happen, but when it does, I'm yours for life.

My post yesterday was deadly depressing, so to counteract its effect, I give you: FIVE THINGS THAT MADE ME LAUGH (recently).

1. Eileen Cook's blog post, "I'm Cool". (Eileen typically makes me laugh anyway... have you read the excerpt for her book? No? Rachel Vater used it here on her blog. LOLOL... Guess that's number 2.)

3. (No, I didn't miss one. Did you read the above?)


4. This book ("The Merchant of Menace")- it's where the protagonist meets her "significant other"'s mother for the first time. It's a giggle fest from beginning to end - despite the fact that there's a murder:

5. Singing goofy songs with my daughter (sorry, can't really share this one). She recently watched "Singing in the Rain" and now we sing -- "Moses supposes his toes were roses, but Moses supposes erroneously" or "Make 'em Laugh!" (her personal fave). I'll get her up in the morning with a serenade of "Good mornin', good mornin'!" Hearing her laugh, really laugh, can make my day.

What about you? What makes you laugh? C'mon... share. We can all use a good belly laugh.

ummm... last night, when m. was complaining about all of our bad jokes, M. responded with, "at least we're depundable!"

Most recently, I'd have to say Janet Evanovich's Metro Girl. Parts of that make me laugh so much!

The Jackson-Hewitt tax service commercials make me giggle, too.

Anno,

I think I like M. His sense of humor is right up my alley!

Tori,

Commercials are one of my favorite things for giggling. I love the Southwest Airlines commercials ("Want to get away?")
