    Sunday Funnies… {Language}

    For those who’ve followed me a while, you know I often reach out to my buddies on Facebook for a little Sunday Funny inspiration. I admit, my eclectic group of friends, from artists to educators (and everything in between), working and retired, near and far, leaves me no shortage of funny stuff to share.  Since I can completely relate to it, here’s a funny from one of those friends… Maybe you can relate??  😉      Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {NFL Edition}

    Are you ready for some football?? Here in the U.S., it’s just about that season again (yay!), but you don’t need to be a football fan to appreciate this video. It is some of THE funniest writing on the Internet! The husband and I watch and rewatch every time a new one comes out. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.    Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Back-to-School Edition}

    One of my former high school students tagged me in a back-to-school video worth a click. Thought I’d share it today – for a little chuckle, indeed. If you aren’t a parent (yet or ever), just watch the parents around you at the grocery store.  You’ll begin to notice how parents feel about the time-honored tradition of back-to-school preparation and that coveted First Day of School …..   (If you listen carefully that day, you’ll probably hear a collective cheer in your neighborhood.)  😉    Have a great rest of your Sunday! 🙂

    Sunday Funnies… {Friends’ Take on Life}

    So, it’s Sunday and I’ve been (regrettably) absent that past few weekends … though busy to say the least. In fact, today I’m knee-deep in this (very happily, I might add)….     … but didn’t want to let another Sunday get by without sharing something to (hopefully) make you smile (if you’re reading).  If you’re not reading this post, then I hope you’re smiling at other things…    😉 Anyway, I turned to my Facebook friends for a little humor today. They’re typically sharing the oddest things, though today they seemed to be mostly ranting about politics – unusual for my crowd – so I had to dig deep. Found a couple worth a smile …… For…

    Sunday Funnies… {Why Yes, I AM Hot!}

    Soooo….. it’s currently 98 degrees outside and 89 degrees inside. The “Maytag Man” paid us a visit this morning after our a/c bit the dust late last night. O.M.G. That pretty much sums things up today….  Nothing funny happening.  (but I’ve gotta find a little humor, somehow) As the technician spoke with my husband about air conditioning and keeping the house cool (a whole new unit being installed tomorrow …. yes, as in neither today nor tonight), I sized him up and figured he was – or has been – a husband – and would get the words that were getting ready to come out of my mouth: I’m a near-50-year-old woman and air…

    Sunday Funnies… {National Doughnut Day}

    A well known (by some) annual event took place Friday…. did you participate? Do you know what it was? Don’t worry if you didn’t know, but here’s a heads-up for next year:  The first Friday in June is known as National Donut Day in the United States.  Which brings us to another idea to consider… Is it doughnut or donut?  This week’s Sunday Funnies share a little humor and a little history to help put a smile on your face. Here goes…. Seems ‘doughnut’ is the original term, but by the late 20th century, it had morphed into ‘donut’ – due in large part, the story goes, to the growth of Dunkin’ Donuts. Curious? You can read more [here].  Whichever…

    Sunday Funnies… {Newspaper #FAILs}

    Do you ever notice what I like to call ‘textual mishaps’ when you’re reading something (including blogs… maybe even this one once in a while…oops!)?  I sure do. Often, when I’m driving. Business signs are the best…. sometimes on purpose (GREAT marketing technique) and sometimes not on purpose (low literacy/no proofing = problematic marketing).  In fact, I saw one the other day I’m saving for a future post. Meantime, here are a few textual mishaps, found in newspapers…..         Happy Sunday! 🙂
