Oh That's Funny!

Funny weird-In the new Eclipse movie Edward was very endearing and almost as hot as Jacob. 


Funny Ha Ha- Mr Dishwasher Repair guy's thick Russian accent.  I sooooo wanted to get him to say "moose and squirrel."


Funny embarrassing- A little situation I had with black bra under a white dress, in the most inappropriate place, and getting discovered and being sent to the "principal's" office.  


Funny because if I didn't laugh I'd cry-Having an electrician, dishwasher repairman, carpet cleaner and Mr. Painter Man all in my house in the same week.  And my car in the shop TWICE!  (Next week, window-repair guy).


Funny because it's better them than me- My daughter getting a job at Cafe Rio the same week the Man/Boy got a job at McDonalds.  God bless minimum wage and fast food.  


Funny new realities- My college-cutie in her first apartment, calling me distraught over her first gas and electric bill.  Welcome to adulthood baby.  Wanna trade bills?


Funny ironic-  A bank down the street from us that went out of business, with a sign in front of the building that says "bank owned."


Funny inappropriate- My husband coming up with a new name for Sarah McLachlan when he found out she's a lesbian. (Where was he when that closet door was opened?). 


Funny annoying-  My 5 year old calling me "mama".  He can call me mom, mommy, mommy dearest, mother, woman or Tipper Gore but "mama" makes me crazy.  


Funny sad-  My house is now staged, organized, clean and pristine.  I am missing my stuff.

P.S.....Funny but not true- Apparently Sarah is not a lesbian. It is a rumor.  It is a rumor that I have now help spread. But we now have a nickname for her if she ever becomes one.

Those were some funny things! Why don't you like momma? I kind of like that - but then I spent quite a bit of years in the south. The one I could never get used to in Oz is "mum." Just so unnatural for me.

Funny REALLY annoying = my 11 yr old grandson still calling his dad "dada" and no one stepping up to explain just how babyish it sounds. Combination of middle school and "dada" just don't work. Had to sit him down and explain. Now that he's 12, he gets it. NOW he calls him "Dad". My heart sings!!

What I found annoying was when my 5 year old started calling me by my first name. That used to bug the crap out of me! I'll take mama

Hang in there the three ring circus will soon end.

Love this post and its simplicity. However, you've completely thrown me for a loop. Because somehow I MISSED the door opening on Sarahs closet as well. WHEN did that happen? Was it when she got divorced? My husband is going to be tragically saddened by this.

And I just want to GUESS where the black bra, white dress incident happened. hahaha That happened to me once in Salt Lake. Totally embarrassing!

This is why I never wear a black bra over my whites!

Kristina P. said...

Wait, Sarah is a lesbian? When in the world did this happen?

And this post was funny. I will let you try to figure out which one.

I have a sudden desire to say everything in a thick Russian accent.

I hope you do a big post-edit to clear up the rumor you are circulating. I have to come to the defense of one of my favorite singers and the author of soundtrack to which Ian and I fell inlove. Sarah Mc is not lesbian (or Lebanese - she's Canadian). (And I can only imagine the original name Rob came up with). If you need more proof, read :

Now Lillith Fair- that is another gay story entirely.

I love that you can find funny in so many places!!! We always categorized our Funnies growing up - "funny haha" or "funny awkward"

and I hate "mama" too... had to put child #3 into a headlock until he stopped saying it. Oh wait... maybe that explains a lot about that kid...

funny ironic...my fave!

Lisa said...

Okay, I am SOOOO with you on that MAMA thing. My husband's entire family referred to their mother as MAMA. And it sounded so freakin'' babyish and whiny and made me kind of hate all of them. Sorry about your stuff. And the worker men. And selling your home. I'll cry for you tonight.

Will someone send me a cafe rio salad? I miss them!

purseblogger said...

Oh my goodness! How have I not heard of you before?? I love your blog! Thank you for visiting mine and I'm following you right back!

I LOVE Cafe Rio! I so miss it when I'm not visiting family in UT. And where have I been? I haven't even heard the rumors about Sarah...

Charlotte said...

Those were all quite funny. I can't believe it took 3 movies before they realized Edward was supposed to be good looking.

I don't own colored bras for this very reason.

Good luck with all the repairmen!

Evelyn @ Hanging by a Silver Lining said...

I was thinking NO WAY! Sarah is a lesbian?! Haha! Thanks for clearing that up before I spread it. Now I want to know the name! Or is it one of those painfully obvious kind of things that everyone else gets but the dumb "blond"??

D & A said...

I'm glad I was able to witness the funny embarrassing one ;)

Love you!!!
