Funny Business

This was going to be a post about my upcoming surgery but truthfully, I'm terrified and doing my best to try and not think about it. Perhaps I'll save that post for another day.

To try and offset my fear and anxiety, I've been doing my best to talk/think about other things. Things such as laughter...

I love to laugh. I know that probably sounds like the dumbest statement ever because you know, who doesn't and all, but I really, really love it. There’s nothing better than laughing so hard that there are tears rolling down your face and you can barely breathe. Most likely this happens over the littlest things but isn't that what humour is all about? The funniest stuff is often the realest; stuttering, clumsiness, terrible pranks? Count me in.

One of my favourite things in the entire world is definitely that joyous creation known as the blooper reel. Gag reel, outtakes, call them what you like – it’s hilarious when people mess up. I often think about how much time and tape I’d waste if I ever did any serious acting work because everything is funny to me and I'm terrible at playing it straight. It’s okay, casting directors! There’s enough of me to go around!

In addition, I'm pretty sure I'm the only almost 40 adult female who still considers America’s Funniest Home Videos to be appointment viewing. I love it! So much so that I even refer to it by the acronym AFHV, which often confuses people and then makes them wonder how that show is still on the air. Hello, earth to everyone! It’s hysterical! Who doesn't love to see kids fall off a trampoline or a cat miss the fish tank it was attempting to jump atop or a dad get hit in the crotch with a whiffle ball bat? If you answered “me” to the above question, see yourself out.

I could talk about how much I love laughing over stupid stuff for hours, but let’s not waste anymore time. Instead, here are some of my favourite go-to videos when I’m looking for a giggle...

Serenity Blooper Reel

Firefly & Serentiy are perhaps my most favorite of favorite TV show and have a giant crush on Captain Tightpants - also know as - Nathan Fillion. Love him! If you are reading this me.

I've got to give a shout out to Just For's me 

What about you. What makes you laugh when you are feeling down and need a giggle? Perhaps you'll share. I am going to need something to help me pass the time after my surgery. Two weeks at home...I'll need all the help I can get!


  1. i love the improptu i really shouldn't be laughing laughter... squeezing out a couple of tears only makes it better! Do you watch the walking dead? It's really not my thing but Andrew loves it. Maybe try watching the season while you're at home?

  2. I generally bring the silliness myself...particularly when interacting with DH. A few weeks ago, we were watching TV and a good song came on (I think it was on a commercial or something) and I randomly started shaking my body to the music as I sat on the couch dancing. I'm not sure who laughed more, me or my hubby. ;)
