Topic for Tuesday, April 22- Laughing out Loud

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
~e.e. cummings

What makes you laugh?

What doesn't make me laugh!?!?!? What a great topic. I have a bit of a strange sense of humor so it's usually odd things that make me laugh. I love dry, sarcastic humor. Movies/TV that makes me laugh are Chris Guest films (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind...),

MST3000,

the original SNL cast and shows, Arrested Development,

X-Files (i know it doesn't seem funny, but it is)... I love Bill Cosby. I love my family, they really are funny.

Random stuff like this video: http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload really makes me laugh.

When my friends and i get together we often end up laughing so hard it hurts...sadly it's usually at someone else's expense. My roommate Shannon laughs when other people get hurt and that makes me laugh. There is a podcast that makes me laugh so hard (Friday Feedbag on Discovery News). The reporters are so witty.

Pretty much every week at church makes me laugh. We have the funniest ward. I usually laugh during the hymns (we sound terrible as a group), sometimes during some strange prayers, at the Bishopric as they try not to laugh at us, if i sit by Kari we laugh at everything, during Good News Minute, sitting in the clerks office after church... it goes on and on.

Ironic things are so funny. Like the man I saw running down the street in full running gear ....while smoking a cigarette.

This website cracks me up:

These signs/pics are so funny:

(I love the little dead one under the car)


(the Ultimate Peep Show)


(Possum Love)
Any time spent with my niece makes me laugh. she is the funniest kid I've ever met.

Disturbing

My friend Janaan sent me this article. She found in on Perez Hilton's site. He was talking about how disgusting it was.

I'm pro-life so it obviously bothers me that she aborted numerous babies but this is really just amazing. I can't even imagine wanting to watch her videos. Very disturbing in my opinion. I was feeling quite nauseous while reading.

I really did...

Pretty Dang Cute!

There a hilarious site called Cute Overload that pretty much just has pictures of cute critters. It's quite funny. I did find this pic though and had to steal it. I love bears!!

Topic for Tuesday April 15 -Professional Help



For what activity
would you want professional lessons?



There are quite a few things that i would like professional lessons for...dancing, race car driving, cooking, horseback riding...but i think for this post i will go with chocolate making. I've always wanted to be a Chocolatier and i definitely need professional help.

Topic for Tues. April 8th- Livin' on the Edge

If you could do something dangerous just once with no risk what would you do?

With no risk? Awesome.
  • I would go ski-diving (i know lot's of people do it, but it scares me).








  • I love carnivores and i would like to meet/pet a bear and wolf.











  • I would go to outer space (I really want to go!).












Here something kinda dangerous that i've already done:
I went on a shark diving adventure in Hawaii. It was really scary but i loved it. It was amazing. I recommend it to everyone!

More pictures of Gus!

Update! His name is Calvin Joseph Kepsel (for now). Great name!

I have another nephew (no name yet, i call him Gus). Gus was born at 2:49 am on the 3rd of April. He was born at home with Chris the midwife, Karla and Joann...Caleb was there somewhere i'm sure ;-) He is perfect.

Naughty Monkey

Anyone who knows me knows i love shoes (and that might be an understatement). I discovered the Naughty Monkey line a little while ago and i really just want every style. Please allow me to salivate for a sec. Here are some examples:

They are just so fun and bright and different! And you can get really good deals on eBay.

New Baby!!!!

Jayne and Caleb had a baby boy last night at 3am. He doesn't have a name yet but they are working on it. Mom and baby are doing great! Congratulations!!!!!
This is a cell phone image so it's not great. I'll get more up later today.

Topic for Tues. April 1 - Made by Hand

This week we are giving you the chance to document something(s) in your home that are special because they were hand made.

Inspire us with your children's artwork, the quilt your Grandmother made or a craft you just finished....the possibilities are endless.

Great homemade things in my house...
  • A beautiful painting done by my niece (she's two). I'll have to take a pic of it and post it. It really is amazing.
  • Another beautiful painting done by my sister-in-law Jayne (Emmy's mom, it runs in the family).
  • A china doll made by my great aunt to look like me. I used to be terrified of it (okay i still am) but it's really very lovely and a great keepsake.
  • A totally ratty blanket that now resides in my cedar chest. My Mom made it for me when i was a child...it used to be just beautiful. I destroyed it because i wouldn't give it up.
  • A half-done blanket i'm making for...who knows. It's one of those flannel ones where you sew five pieces together and then cut through the top three and wash it and comes out so pretty and soft. I've already made two and i kinda burned out i think on this one. Maybe i'll finish it in time for Christmas :-)
  • Almost done leg warmers! I started knitting leg warmers last November. They turn out so cute, i just got busy...yet another unfinished project.
  • I have a watercolor that i'm working on. I just finished a watercolor class and discover that i'm really not very good it :-) but it's fun!
  • My housemate Shannon is a craft queen...she makes all sort of great things that i'm jealous of. She's really good with modge podge.
