Cheers...

Friday turned out to be so funny.  Truly, I couldn't stop laughing just thinking about some of the blog posts I'd read earlier in the day...

*****************************

I started out with Robbie, over at Tales From Beyond, who was writing a Valentine post but NOT about it being a love story.  He likes to think he's unromantic and jaded.  Very far from the truth when you read his stories because he is the most hopelessly romantic guy ever.  Which I guess is what makes his protestations even more funny.  His valentine post was an historical glimpse into the relationship he has with his woman.  One sentence totally cracked me up.  Towards the end of the post, he's having a conversation with said woman and refers to an incident involving his "white-hot, love-truncheon." 

OMG, I'm cracking up again!  So, so funny.

(I'm also very sorry, Rob, but you will never convince anyone that you're not romantic.  Not the way you write, or tell stories, but believe me, that's a good thing...)

****************************

Next I read Angy's post on her site, Tied Up With String.  She lives in Oz and it's hot, hot Summer there right now.  Because she doesn't want to write it out, she posted a link to an Aussie-ism that she says is used often, by many, for this kind of heat.  I clicked the link, then nearly choked on my morning coffee when I burst out laughing.  I told her in Comments that when Summer got to my part of the world, I was totally going to say this.  Throughout the day, I kept thinking of it and couldn't stop the laughter. 

I also couldn't wait for months, so here is the typical comment, made by Australians, on the heat of a Summer's day:  "It's as dry as a dead dingo's donger."

Ah  jeez...again, laughing laughing laughing.

****************************

Then I'm off to the Netherlands to visit with Stu at Invading Holland.  His post was about an addiction he has to a peanut butter/Nutella-like spread called Speculoos.  These are biscuits (cookies), but also a caramelized gingerbread spread made from the biscuits.  And I have to say, that sounds really tasty to me, so no wonder Stu was hooked on the stuff, though he did manage to "get clean" a few years back.

Until.

They've recently come out with a chocolate version!  The post was really funny, and it made me want to find some Speculoos and try it for myself. 

Best of luck kicking the habit, again, Stu.  Hopefully it won't require an intervention...

****************************

Another Angie, this one in Toronto.  She took a brief hiatus from her blog, Best Part of My Day but thankfully, she's back with some great photos relating to Valentine's Day.  I laughed at the photo of the chalkboard and hoped the words really weren't true!  

(I hope this really means you're back, Angie...)

*****************************

Pearl, Why You Little... is one of the funniest blogs out there.  Pearl really should be doing stand-up comedy in her home town of Minneapolis, though then she wouldn't have time to write on the blog.  Her stories are wonderful observations about life, friends, family and--the most hilarious--her adventures riding the bus.

****************************

So thanks to you guys, I laughed my way through Friday--and again writing this post.  If I could, I'd invite you down to the pub and buy y'all a pint.  You totally made my day...

*****************************

N.B.  One other thing happened yesterday that I forgot to mention...

This card arrived in the afternoon post from my BFF.  It made me laugh all over again because a) it's something she would say to me, and b) it's so, so true.

 

See?  It was just a funny, funny day...

  1. My friend, Jezebel, would totally give me a card like that. For she is sadistic.
