My daughter.

I woke up this morning to find my perpetually naked daughter running around the house, naked of course, but for socks and sneakers.

She had her shoes on the correct feet, though! :D

Well, the opening to this thread made me laugh. That's cause for posting.

I bought a new hat today. Red, fitted ball cap that has the words 'Porn Star' on the front. I came in to work and got, "Sup Fred Durst!" From just about everyone in the room. That made me laugh.

For those who don't get it: Fred Durst is the lead singer for Limp Bizkit, and wears a red ball cap all the time.

Knowing that lurkernomore has finally, after four years, been unable to prevent me from finding out what he looks like!!! (I have been vindicated!!! *g*)

Oh, and hearing my brother swear and hear my 18 month old nephew repeat it. *chuckle*

Absolutely nothing.

My puppy. I put his harness on and took him outside. He doesn't like the harness, so when I put him down, he turned his back to me and then wouldn't turn around.

This morning I laughed when I read what I wrote in my journal last night. It made absolutely no sense. I wonder if Mom laces my dinner with crack.

Then again, I laugh hysterically at almost everything...

Saying "welfy" many times in a row makes me laugh. What a silly name.

Isn't putting your dog down just because he doesnt like his harness a little harsh?!?!?!

Some background:

My father is nearly deaf but refuses to wear a hearing aid.

My mother is a tad nuts, but usually in a good way.

I take after my mother. (OK, that’s irrelevant.) ;)

My younger son… oh, never mind.

OK, this happened yesterday, but I laughed soooooooooooo hard and for such a long time and cried until tears ran off my cheeks… and… well, I simply must share.

The phone rang. My son answered. All he said was, “OK, bye.”

“Chris?” I queried. “What’s up?”

“Just listen, Mom. Oh, what’s Grandma and Grandpa’s phone number?”

“Chris? You really should have it memorized, you goober!” I then shared with him the necessary information. He dialed, and my father picked up.

OK, so all I can hear is Chris’s side of the conversation: “Grandpa? You know Grandma’s sweater -- the one with the kittens on it? Well, she’d like you to throw it down the laundry chute to her… Yeah, kittens. OK, bye.”


Chris then explained to me that my father had just mopped the kitchen floor, and my mom didn’t want to walk across it, and she couldn’t possibly yell upstairs to him because he wouldn’t be able to hear her. Naturally, she called my house instead. OK, maybe this isn’t as funny as I purported, but to me, it’s flippin’ hilarious!

My dog. When you throw a stick to him, he doesn't just fetch it. No, he pounces on it, scoops it up, shakes it, and then prances around with it, growling triumphantly.

Such a simple thing. Makes me laugh every time.

My Cat (not Notdog, it's far too smart for this, this cat i call American)

American was lying in the sink

I turned on the water

Nuff said.


01-07-2001, 07:29 PM
And you survived?

01-07-2001, 07:37 PM
Well Euty, the great thing about it is American is such a shockingly stupid cat.

He just sat there for about 30 seconds watching the water land on him and rise (he was sitting on the drain). This gave me ample time to escape, though i had to come back to turn off the water so he didn't flood the sink. He hadn't moved. As i said, he's a very, very dumb cat.

01-07-2001, 07:39 PM
Maybe you had to be there to find it funny... i dunno, i'm still laughing about it though

My daughter called about 5 AM to talk to me and Mrs. blur, just to see how our weekend was and to check what time we were going over to my parents for dinner today. Why did this make me laugh? She's 5 and never used a phone on her own before, did it all by herself and managed to talk for about 10 min. before anyone at my parents caught on.

This is dumb, but it made me laugh.

Flipping through the channels tonight, I saw one of those "America's Most Daring Thieves" or something like that shows on The Learning Channel. (Is this some kind of oxymoron or what?) One of the "daring thieves" took pains to conceal his identity from the security cameras by putting a bag over his head. Our Mr. Brains, however, had neglected to cut eyeholes in the bag, and the camera caught him falling flat on his face.

Told you it was dumb.

No, Upham. What's funny is that you have a cat named Notdog. I told my husband that, and now he wants to get a cat just so we can name it Notdog. (He's allergic to cats, too.)

Scylla's "Goat Porn" thread...since I have yet to figure out how to put a link to it in a post, You'll have to find it yourself...but I suggest you do. It's one of the funniest things I've seen in a looooong time. :D

01-07-2001, 09:47 PM
Notdog's the smart one, American's the twit...

And Knees is the one who just bothered the dog (Banjo) one time too many. (i love it when things happen in such a way as to give me something to reply with)

Knees sits just out side of Banjo's chain's length and makes cat faces at him.

This time Banjo wasn't on his chain.

Again, nuff said

Now Upham has made me laugh - a stupid cat named American? That's hysterical :D

I saw my friend Stevo asking someone through a dound-proofed window if he had chopsticks for his spaghetti. This was also during physics class. About that point, I fell asleep.

I heard someone on the radio refer to a porn star named "Annette Funforfellas" and had to leave my office to laugh in the hallway.

While driving to work today, I was flipping through radio channels and landed on "Burning Love", Elvis style. As I start belting this number out, I look at the car next to me and notice the woman in it is singing the same Elvis tune as me. Gave me a good start to a Monday.
