So I found out today that I didn’t get a job that I interviewed for (and had my heart set on) and further that I never had a chance because they had someone in mind already so I was just a filler interview. In short I’m a bit bummed. So If you have a literary meme that makes you laugh, please link below in the comments. I’ll start you out with my favorite!
All dignity you have subsides when there is a room full of interns starring at your lady bits, as you yell at the doctor to just use the forceps to pull out the tiny child who has been stuck in your birthing canal for the last four hours….
If you haven’t noticed, I have been MIA as of late.
I present to you the reason why:
My little tiny terrorist who pretty much holds me hostage most of the day. But I am, like any good captive learning her ways and soon I hope to return full force to the blogging world, but until then pardon my absence, I have diapers to change and vomit to clean up.
I came upon a hilarious yet on retrospective slightly depressing Buzzfeed article entitled “16 classic children’s books retold for adults. It’s hilarious to see how the view portrayed as children changes as we enter adulthood just sort of sad to see how jaded as adults many people become. So laugh! Enjoy! And if you find yourself relating to this, go out and reconnect with your childhood self 🙂
Two of my favorites are below: 🙂
As you know, I’m not a grammar Nazi, at all, but this video manages to teach a bit about the English language while poking fun at all .
This video for what it worth is amazingly well done. It’s also interesting to see Belle thrust into a different culture. Of course, since it is a satire, it plays up stereotypes which rhetorically I have a few issues with……Regardless though, it took real talent to craft the entire production.
So buzzfeed had an article, “If the Disney Princess went to your high school,” which was hilarious and also shines a light on the faults of the princesses. It’s tongue in cheek for sure, but is the perfect article for people like me who grew up with a love/hate relationship with Disney and the Princesses as well (minus Belle, I will get my library god dang it.).
Disney stories are entertaining, but let’s face it, most of them are awful morals for women and young girls. And frankly most of the princess could use a little consoling!
What do you think? Ideas you would add? Any assessments you disagree with?
Once, I sat outside of a building, alone, crying when an older gentleman came up to me and said, “you are a beautiful girl, but you are even more beautiful when you smiled.”
The result: I smiled.
It isn’t always even to smile, especially with a daunting Monday and a work week ahead, but I guarantee that one of these English puns is going to bring a smile to your face.
In fact, it might even make you laugh out loud!
Happy Monday my fellow word nerds!
Short post today.
I know this month is well, probably a bit of awesome chaos for all of us, and today I am feeling the heat. I just learned I have two poems set for publication (yay) with two more that they want me to edit before publishing (two weeks for that task) and I am in working on designing and implementing a play writing class for ages k-12. In short I’m swamped.
But, when I stumbled upon this British humor zine, the Newsbuscuit, my anxiety was laughed away. If you are in need of a laugh, please read and take a few minutes to imagine Jane Austen hooligans and then smile.
I’m afraid it is a short post today.
Later today, I’m going to a reflexology and yoga retreat. Before then, I’d like to get some writing in. But of course, I find myself surfing the web instead. On the plus side I found this amusing link:
Anyone who loves fonts (and what personality they reflex) should check it out.
Enjoy, and happy Saturday!
