Comic Genius

Good Morning All!

Like I've said before I have a goofy sense of humor. Apparently it's not just found in my "comic relief" characters, but even in my parenting style. Today I was helping my son with someone and I started dancing around with a wash cloth (never thought that would be a popular dance style, did you? Well, I think we should call it doing The Wash or something like that). Anyway, my son was cracking up watching me. As a parent you have to wonder if the kid is laughing with you or at you. I figure a little bit of both. When he gets older I'm sure I'll hear "Jeez, mom, you're so weird!" So, I figure while he's still young enough to appreciate my comic genius I'd take advantage of it. Plus it's good fun. And I love making him laugh and smile. (It's a great feeling).

I've appreciated everybody's comments on yesterday's post. Be sure to vote on the poll found in the margin of my blog about current movies. It ends in less than 7 days. (Just did it for fun to see what everyone was into).

What's on my plate for today? I really am hoping to get my "act together" and do my exercise DVD. I've been remiss this entire week on that! YUCK! I won't get in shape and stay in shape if I don't stick to it. Then there's some of the usual every day items to do (laundry, bathing, etcetera). (Maybe I could do The Wash while I'm doing laundry? Hmmm? *laughs*). Oh boy...I wonder if I need that second coffee today or not. Thoughts, anyone?

I have a headache today, but I'm not going to let it get in the way of what I want to do. (It's not too bad...it's a manageable one). So, that's good.

I don't know how many of you have ever watched "Veggie Tales", but they have really cute Bible Stories (and lessons on virtues...things like sharing your gift with others, helping others, that kind of thing). There's one out there called "Lord Of The Beans" and it is parodying "The Lord of The Rings".

There's this one character in it that comes down a path riding some sort of unicycle thingy with an umbrella and he sings this song (and I got it stuck in my head yesterday) with an Irish or Scottish accent:

"Oh I'm a lucky fellow
I'm a lucky guy
I've got a new umbrella
and it's me pride and joy!"

I fear for the person who talks to me on the phone the next time this song is stuck in my head. And I'm not even a boy and I don't have a new umbrella! AAHHHH someone help!

Maybe I'll turn on some country music (Brooks & Dunn or Toby Keith's older stuff) or my younger brother's band, (Optional 2--they haven't updated in a long time, so don't look for any new updates, they aren't there, but I think they have clips of their songs and as far as I know they still have their album available to purchase) although, I'm not usually into hip-hop, Optional 2 is cool--it's very different from anything else out there. Or maybe, better yet, They Might Be Giants. We'll see :-)

In any case today is full of editing Chapter 3 of Conjure A Man and such like that.

So...anybody else have a goofy sense of humor? What's a funny or silly thing you've done?

Have A Funny Friday!

My boyfriend has a goofy sense of humor. He jokes about the "laundry fairy" who washes, dries, and hangs his pants while he's off doing something else. (*I* do all that.)

LOL. That's cute. I hope he says thank you! My husband does a lot of housework, which I am very thankful to him.

I often dance around the house in purposefully awkward ways and sing songs to my husband. This morning I did a barefoot tap dance on our entry tile while he watched. I pretended to have an audience that applauded and beeged for more...so I did more. It was truly horrible but what can I say...I'm stuck in Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Ann Miller-ville.

Gene Kelly...awesome dancer. I might put my not-so-great tap dancing skills to practice and dance beside you. (While my husband would give me a look and shake his head LOL) Keep dancing, Regina!

I tease my kids alot. With a 13,11, and 8 year old most of the teasing is about boys or girls. They love teasing each other but when it's themselves it's a different story.

We rhyme alot...silly ones like in Princess Bride. That's always fun!

The movie, "The Princess Bride" absolutely rocks. "Fezzie! Are they're rocks ahead?" "If there are, we all be dead!" *GRINS* Great stuff.
