The Challenge: Do something that will get you to laugh out-loud (one that puts you in danger of peeing your pants a little bit).
I love stand-up comedy. It started when I was younger watching Bill Cosby, Paula Poundstone, Tim Allen, Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy and Ellen Degeneres before she was know as just “Ellen”. I tend to laugh out-loud quite a bit at stand-up comedy. So, knowing this, I put on some Dane Cook, which we had in iTunes, while I was doing some busy-work this morning. Dane is unbelievably funny. Sure enough within minutes I was cracking up. Sometimes I think I laugh harder at the jokes I already know because I’m anticipating the funny parts that are coming up. Why don’t I do this more? I know what makes me laugh, yet I would never have normally put on comedy during the day. It really got me in a great mood.
When I need a laugh fix, I like watching funny movies — the kind my mom thinks are stupid (but secretly laughs at too.) Because I didn’t have time to watch a full movie, I browsed some of the best parts of my favorite ones, compliments of MovieWavs.com. Here are some highlights:
“What cologne you gonna go with?” (Anchorman)
“Older Kids” (Christmas Vacation)
“Wolverines” (Napoleon Dynamite)
“I did call” (Tommy Boy)
“What I Said” (Dodgeball)

Tomorrow’s Challenge: Audio Sneak Peek
We got Dad an iPod for his bday last week…was at Mom and Dad’s this afternoon….Dad has his iPod…singing along as loud as he can (and quite off key)….making up his own lyrics as he listens…he was having so much fun…but his singing/”songwriting” got me rolling with laughter, and I did almost pee in my pants! 😀
Today I popped Ferris Bueller into the VCR while spending my time with the treadmill. ALWAYS good for some hearty laughs. 🙂
Spent today celebrating a birthday and found lots of moments that had me busting a gut! Being with friends and sharing stories is a great way to get laughing – one person starts and you just get on a roll! I also had the pleasure of spending time with a 15 month old and a 3 year old – excellent sources of laughter-inducing antics and comments!
So, a friend reminded me of this funny website. It’s a hilarious song sung in a higher-than-normal pitched voice going extremely fast that I call ‘Llama, Llama, Duck.’ Check it out if you can – it’s bound to make you laugh out loud for sure! http://www.relaxorium.com/journalpics/thellamasong.swf
This month, February, is my turn to open up the lumberyard at 6:30 in the morning. My tasks include unlocking the safe, getting the cash registers going, checking the phone messages, and getting the orders ready.
This particular morning 3 of the guys were standing around Chadds desk and laughing like crazy and I have to admit that it was rather annoying as I tried to get my work done.
It wasn’t until later in the morning that I had an opportunity to see what was so funny. What they were looking at was pictures of about 16 of our employees from 1999. Big deal. People change but how funny can that be? Well my boss Pete likes to play with photo shop and what he had done was distort everyone’s face so that it looked like our heads were in a round fish tank. We looked like we had onion shaped heads. All of of them were quite funny and I did have a good laugh and enjoyed looking at them. Pete likes to take pictures of us and spruce us up with gold teeth or rotten teeth or long faces with stretched necks. Just the thought of it makes me laugh. I hope Pete creates some more freak pictures of his employees!

Ok, so while in the dollar store picking up sunglasses, Katie had the great idea of trying to drive with them on! It was quite funny to both of us. Strangely, no one on the road really seemed to notice. It made us laugh out loud and still does. Plus, living with a comedian- we laugh out loud everyday!
