30-Day Challenge 18: Laughter Is the Best Medicine Blogfest


Question of the Day: What are two smileys that describe your life right now?

Day 18: The question above!

d(^_^)b is supposed to portray a happy person doing thumbs up! I have been enjoying all this free time away from school and nothing could be better. Since I am traveling for the last half of summer, I've been trying to spend this first half of summer learning more and getting to know more about myself. During the school year, I was always surrounded by people and was constantly either going to events or studying in the library. Now, I'm trying to take this opportunity to revisit what I personally like, what makes me happy, and all-around who I am when I'm by myself. Besides--everyone has to mentally recharge before going on another adventure!

8-/ is supposed to represent a nerd. I've been digging myself into books and writing and Smallville lately, cooped up in the bedroom that I've missed for over eight months. I probably sound a bit pathetic, but like I said above I'm enjoying this downtime. I have been catching up with all the things that I wasn't able to do during the school year-especially read, write, and watch movies. I'm having a rather "nerdy summer," but I'm loving it. :)


I signed up for Lydia Kang's and Leigh Moore's fun-filled blogfest called "Laughter is the Best Medicine." The idea is to Post a joke that pokes fun at yourself, or writing, or your job (including parenting, of course!), or anything personal. Or if that's too much work, any joke that you think is funny will do.

I'm not that great with outwardly funny jokes--but lately, I've become acquainted with the art of sarcasm. My family says I always take things way too seriously all the time, so adopting a few sarcastic remarks has been one way that I've been teaching myself to lighten up. Thus, here are a few of my favorite "witties" and "sarcs" that I've either heard of from other places or I've come up with myself and used recently. Hope they amuse you!!!

If you were any more open-minded your brains would fall out.

Sometimes I need what only you can provide....your absence.

A person who aims at nothing is sure to hit it.

Go to Hell.
See you there.

Person #1: *shocked* You didn't just do that!
Person #2: No? I can do it again.

You're unique. Just like everyone else.

SMALLVILLE REFERENCE...
Grant: *sees Lois in a hospital gown* Whoa! Let me guess, Vera Wang? Maybe Dolce?
Lois: This is me laughing hysterically.

Person #1 walks in on someone else *insert obvious activity*: What are you doing?!
Person #2: Is that a trick question?

I would agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

The texter: are you awake?
The text receiver: yeah, I'm always awake at 3am.

Did you know that if you press the elevator button three times it goes into hurry mode?

Tough Person: Do you know who I am?!
Sarcastic Person: No, why? Have you forgotten?

Don't let your mind wander, it's too small to be out on its own.

I'm asking a friend about his day, what he's been up to lately and what his goals are for the summer....
Friend: Gosh, girl, so many questions!
Me: I'm a journalist. It's my job.

Facebook Happenings:
(*names have been changed*)
Babycakes's status: It is so hot.
Twinkle's comment: It's cause I'm online. ;o
Babycakes replies: LOLOL. I thought it was coming from someone!
-the next day-
Honey comments: It's cold today. Twinkle must be offline.

Also, this isn't exactly witty or sarcastic but I went to a neighbor's yard sale the other day and afterwards, later on, I saw that neighbor's sons, who's about eight years old.

Me: Hey, Neighbor's Son! Did you have fun at the yard sale?
Neighbor's Son: Yeap! I made 20 bucks! But Dad split it in half and gave me seven.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in my "Inanimation" Blogfest!!! I had a load of fun hosting my first blogfest and reading all the entries. If you still have yet to post your entry up, don't worry--better late than never. :)

Cute jokes. I wish elevators would go into hurry modes by pushing them more than once.

Hahaha! These were all excellent! That's so sad about the neighbor kid. LOL.

I'm wondering which of these phrases you came up w/because if you only recently became acquainted w/the art of sarcasm, you must be a natural. ;)

Oh, and wow! Your blog has a soundtrack! You rock. d(^-^)b

Wow, one of my fave Lifehouse songs is playing right now *enjoys epic coolness* And I LOVE the elevator one! I now want to haunt some random elevator somewhere and wait for someone to repeatedly hit the button just so I can offer up a little snark about hurry-mode. :P

This was great, thanks for the giggles!

Jennie Bailey said...

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong - I'm going to remember that. I know it's going to come in handy. :-)

Hart Johnson said...

I think a nerdy summer sounds wonderful. I wish I had some time off to be nerdy. And I love sarcasm. I think my favorite example is from My Cousin Vinny when marissa Tomei says to Vinnie, "Oh, you blend." *snort*

Ginger said...

d(^_^)b

Tough Person: Do you know who I am?!
Sarcastic Person: No, why? Have you forgotten? hahaha
