If you laugh and no one hears, is it still funny?

I don’t usually laugh when I’m watching or reading funny things when I’m alone. I might think “Ha, that’s funny” or I might even smile, but I rarely ever actually laugh.

Russell Brand is one of the few people who will make me laugh regardless of who is (or isn’t) around me. I’m watching the second series of Russell Brand’s Ponderland right now and I’m actually laughing out loud. I mean full-bodied, audible laughter. It’s scaring the cat.

Just kidding. It’s day 13.

I know. I’ve missed a few days. The last week has been what can only be described as “blah”. Did nothing. Thought about nothing of any import (as you can tell from my posts here LOL). Started new Me Project posts each day, but realized I had nothing to say about things. Battled a fruit fly plague. (Isn’t that one of the signs of the Apocalypse?) Watched a hella lot of TV.

My scale tells me that I lost 2 pounds, but it’s a pathological liar and I don’t believe it. And I’m ignoring the siren call of my nails. (“You know you wanna.”)

Applied for a very short-term freelance job. Looked kind of interesting for a couple of days work, but who knows. Started properly looking at job postings. I need to get out of the house — I’m going stir crazy. Saw a contract for an HTML Converter. It pays less than my usual rate, but it might be nice, mild work for awhile. So I’m waffling over whether or not to apply for it. (It doesn’t say how long the contract is.)

Via Karen’s Wild Coast of Bohemia blog:

Cake Wrecks where all bad cakes go to die (some of those turkey cakes are burned into my retinas)

Craftastrophe “because handmade isn’t always pretty”

In a similar vein, one of my favourite sites was You Knit What?, which was a blog devoted all things horrible in the knitting pattern world. Too bad they abandoned it a couple of years ago, but the archives are still a fun read.
