I’m easily amused and thought that line was very funny 😄.

We have another mash up!  YaY!! #JusJoJan and #1linerWeds.  One challenge is good but two challenges are the best!  Check out the creativity shared here.

Last week after I posted my jotted one liner, I saw this:

How do I you like your eggs? … In CAKE!!!! 

Yummy!  I do love eggs!  Except for sunny side up, runny yolk. Those are just gross for reasons that shall remain nameless.  Let’s just say farm fresh comes with surprises.

Happy Wednesday folks!

As always, more to come.

What day is it?  We’ve all been asking that question.  The two weeks prior were a blur so much so that in my case I still have no idea about anything.  Seriously?  Yes seriously Meredith Grey.  Who am I? Where am I? What’s the meaning of life?  LOL

Follow these rules and ping back to your own kind of happy!

I don’t have a one liner for today but I am jotting anyway.  I feel then need.  A hunger if you will.  Like a wolf maybe?  Or  “It’s a hunger” from “Take Me Home Tonight” Eddie Money?  Wait Jilly!  This is PG.

This Duran-Duran ear worm was brought to me courtesy of the cafe in A building which was playing as I paid for my oatmeal this morning.  I got bad or maybe mediocre news from my labs hence the reinstatement of oatmeal.   I am also walking my a$$ off today.  I will get 10K steps!!!

And now I have the giggles.  Something is happening across the aisle from me.  I could not string a sentence together but may try to write about the situation later.  Fun times y’all. Lunch break FIN!

As always, more to come.

We have an electronic feedback board at work. No censorship really; almost anything goes. Supposed to be business purposes to gauge employee sentiments/mood and while names aren’t published, feedback isn’t exactly anonymous. I saw this liner last week and thought yes, we all need a little levity. Without further ado …

A mathematician wanders back home at 3am and proceeds to get an earful from his wife. “You’re late!” she yells. “You said you’d be home by 11:45!” “Actually,” the mathematician replies coolly, “I said I’d be home by a quarter of 12.”

Get it? Got it. Good! Corny clean fun. Lol 😂

Long time reader, first time quiz taker. This seems fun. Melanie has created a welcoming space to share. Follow this link for more … http://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/12/23/share-your-world-12-23-19/


Do dogs ‘talk’ (communicate) with their own species?  My two Buddy and Spot sure do. Nope I haven’t lost my mind. Communication comes in many forms. You bet our fur babies “talk” to one another.

Have you ever had to work on Christmas Day? Not the day of but many a Christmas Eve in retail, then later in a call center.

If someone gifts you something that you immediately loathe, do you pretend to really like it anyway or are you brutally honest about your opinion? Hmm I’ve never been given anything I loathe but if that ever happens I wouldn’t say anything. I’m a proponent of it’s the thought that counts.

Which popular drink, found during the Christmas season most often, is called “milk punch?” Egg nog maybe? Too sweet for me needs rum to cut that sweetness 😉

How many ghosts show up during “A Christmas Carol?”  Three if memory serves – past, present, and future?? No maybe it was two ghosts and death? I’m guessing because never read the book and parts of the adaptation really scared me as a kid. I may not have ever made it all the way through. I know the general story of course, very high level. Wasn’t there a creepy child named Woe? When death opened his robe, the shocker. Why the heck was I even allowed to watch? My parents who were very social creatures were probably out at a holiday dance. Or I maybe I’m misremembering. I might google “A Christmas Carol” later.

Are you all about the holly and jolly or more about remembering the alleged ‘true’ meaning of Christmas?    I’m about no stress. I’ve been saying this a lot lately but everyday is Christmas or <insert special occasion of choice>. Why can it be like any other day? I’m done doing something because I think I have to. The excesses make me tired. My Lulu belle is sad. She remembers the blowouts of Christmases past when my dad was alive. She asked why we don’t all get together anymore. The short answer is her grandpa was our north Star. We still love each other but the center has come undone.

Please share a memory or thought about the holiday season if you’d like, whatever kind of celebration you may observe. 

As a kid, we’d drink hot chocolate from Santa Claus mugs. This was a special set of four that only came out the week of Christmas. One was Santa winking his left eye, another his right, one with both eyes wide open and the 4th with both eyes shut. I always got sleepy Santa with eyes closed. None of my brothers would ever trade me for a winking mug. Boy did I want to drink my hot chocolate from a winking mug. Funny what one remembers.

I’m continuing a “from TV” mode. We watch the show “Bless This Mess” primarily due to the timing ABC on Tuesdays after “The Connors”. Until recently that is. The show has become a favorite laugh out loud funny. I’d say the premise is a revamp of “Green Acres”. Kay and Beau are neighbors who are separated but still very much in love. They decided to spend Christmas together as a family for the sake of their son. Beau really wants to win Kay back. The scene goes something like this …

Kay: Say it again

Beau: Do you need help in the kitchen?

Kay: Oh pregnant Mary on the donkey

Beau: I’m grateful for you

Kay: Sweet baby Jesus in the hay

Might not be lol out of context but to see the actress who plays Kay perform her craft is hilarious 🤣. The actor playing Beau is not so bad himself.

Back to TV land today. I’m really enjoying The Moody’s Christmas. It is a three night event, two episodes per night. Without further ado some good lines:

Sean Jr: This! This is unconscionable. And what no breakfast?

Sean Sr: You can get your own place you know.

Sean Jr: Don’t play chicken with me old man I’m your mostly likely caregiver

As always more to come.

I’m reading a book 📖 that’s completely irreverent. I probably won’t review this gem 💎 because people may judge me unfavorably. I have tons of snort worthy laugh 🤭 out loud quotes too. Shame I can’t share. I know I really shouldn’t care what anyone thinks. Personally I believe censorship is the devil’s 👿 work. Not really. I’m being a queen 👑 comma drama.

All this blathering to say I’m back on from TV 📺 quotes. Two from American Housewife follow:

It’s from the Greatest Showman … where for some reason Wolverine starts a circus 🎪 ~ Tripp

It’s so confusing… Are you baseball or are you soccer? Come on kickball make up your mind. ~ Franklin
