Gimme your hilarious anecdotes

I'm always torn on how personal to get on this blog. I don't want to throw every little thing out there, but some days, like today, something big and sad happens to someone I love and it's all I can think about. Something very sad happened to a very little peanut, and while it wasn't my peanut, I was planning on stealing the peanut often for the rest of my life and teaching it about The Rolling Stones and Nirvana, the wonder that is breakfast for dinner, and why I love Back to the Future so much. Farewell, peanut.

Gaa! Adorable sailor style mystery shirt, you bother me so! I've Googled the brand and I can't find anything out! Where and when are you from and why did you have such massive shoulderpads??

So let's focus on fun and silly things, because there is nothing you can do about the sad things that have already happened. Funny thing #1:
This duck couple, skinny dipping in my pool at 6am. Get outta there you pervs, no pooping in the pool!
So please, tell me something funny that has happened to you recently! Pretty please, I hate being sad!

I'm so sorry that you're sad. My thoughts are with you.

i'm sorry to hear about peanut. if i'm thinking of the same thing, it recently happened to my brother and his wife (i'm just guessing here...). i cried a little but what i did was pray that the next one will stay.

do you have any hobbies that you like to do? mine is photography and whenever i am sad, i just focus all my energy and creating photographs that excite me, or look through a bunch of old photographs and relive happy memories.

hope you feel better soon.

I'm sorry to hear about the peanut and that you're feeling sad.

My stories usually involve my being a crazy cat lady. A few days ago one of my cats tried to steal a piece of cooked chicken. It was hot, so he dropped on the floor. Then he puffed up his fur and started hissing at the ckicken like it was pure evil.

I don't have a funny story right now, at least. But I really like that one about the hissing cat and piece of chicken! Feel better my friend.

Oh doll, my heart is squoze.

I dreamed last night that I had to save my pigs from the hyenas that had surrounded my enormous Southern mansion. More surreal than funny, but hope it helps.

::hugs:: to you! I'll keep you and your loved ones in my thoughts.

As for a funny anecdote: When my husband was 6-years-old he was in a 4th of July parade with his T-ball team. He got bored just walking so he pretended that he had a kitchen counter and cupboards in front of him and that he was making a bologna sandwich. He took the pretendfood out of the pretendcupboards, and spread the pretendmustard on the pretendbread, the whole nine yards...All I can envision is my hubs as a little dark-eyed, dark-haired boy walking down the street looking like he was having some kind of fit. He said his coach came over and yelled at him to stop it.

Oh, sorry about the peanut and your sadness. Sending virtual hugs.
OK, so not that funny, but odd. In the subway today, there was an older gentleman in a black Western button up shirt and slacks holding this tape recorder (you know, old school, mostly a speaker), that played the Star Wars theme music. He stood by a center door and every time someone came in, he'd say, "Step right in! Welcome. Take your seats!" When we left, he winked at me and said, "The King is alive."
Also spotten in midtown Manhattan, very small old ladies complaining about the hat in very big, very wide hats.

I'm very sorry for you and your friend. I too once lost a little peanut. Two months later, though, I was blessed with my beautiful Bean.

Here's a kind of funny story:
The other day when I was teaching a Pilates class, we were using the magic ring (think thigh master as a circle). We were doing some upper body exercises when the ring slipped and I punched myself super hard in the boob. It was like something out of an Anna Faris movie.

feel better soon :)

*hugs* for you.

hilarious anecdotes... well, my husband remembers his dreams in detail every other morning. this morning he told me all about playing volleyball with his parents' cat - except it couldn't have been his parents' cat, because she was too nice!

Aw, hun. Sending you hugs!

I don't know that I have any really hilarious anecdotes at the moment, but this always makes me giggle: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kqqMXWEFs

Sorry to hear about the peanut, I hope someday you do get to teach someone about the awesomeness of back to the future and brinner.

This photo makes me laugh.

I'll try to do my best, even if my english is not super-great.

My parents in law type half of their e-mail in capital letters because once they locked the button they can't figure how to unlock it.
My dad didn't find yet the space character on his cell phone, so he's sendingmessagewithoutanyspaceatall. Cute.

Bien amicalement from France.
