I’ve just spent over half an hour searching for a previous post I sort of remember writing concerning the problems of aging and how one is so easily distracted by… well.. everything, it would seem. The material for the post derived from a book I’d read in the last two or so years called “Where Did I Put My Glasses?” (Or was it “Where Did I Leave my Glasses?“) It’s a book on the normal memory loss adults experience as they age, and it described my experience to a T.
I wanted to draw from the post to introduce the following video on the same subject, so I suppose it is utterly appropriate that I didn’t find it! Every time I watch this piece, it gets funnier. Probably because I relate sooo well. Yes! I’m thinking, as I listen to her. That’s just how it is! I’ve been busy all day and yet…
It’s also British, which for me makes it even funnier, but you may have to listen closely to get by the accent, especially at the beginning. Enjoy…
Found this funny video on my agent’s blog, and have now watched it many times, often all in a row. If you are inclined toward a lot of serious study of the Word of God, and/or you just like the sound of big, melodious words, you might find it funny, too. (Though I’m almost as fascinated by how fast the guy can say/sing all this, as by what he’s saying/singing.) I’m dedicating it to my Pastor, John Farley, of Lighthouse Bible Church. 🙂 (A philologist, if you don’t know, is a type of linguist. The word literally means “love of words.” Today it’s used for those who study written texts, usually ancient ones.) Enjoy!
A fellow dog lover sent me this. I’ve now watched it numerous times. I laugh every time. At first I just enjoyed it for the “acting.” Now I enjoy it because it’s fun to watch the dogs being dogs, while the people try to keep them in “character.” I’m also trying to teach Quigley to eat off a fork. So far, he’s not caught on. [If for some reason the video is not appearing below, click on the title of this post to go to the post itself and hopefully you’ll find it.]
Perhaps you’ve seen this already, but if not… A seagull snatched the camera from a tourist in San Francisco and filmed the sunset over the Golden Gate Bridge. The tourist ran along the shore following the gull as best she could and found the camera on the sidewalk where the bird left it, then uploaded the footage to You Tube.
Pretty funny, I think. It’s clear it was taken by the bird, as well.
It’s been a good week. I’ve been busy getting caught up, and even made some headway on Sky. All the way to page 14 of ch 2, and hopefully will finish it today or tomorrow. But it’s not left me much time to write many blogs.
So… I’ve got another video to share. I found this one quite by accident on a site called Life With Dogs. It makes me laugh so hard I cry. Maybe it’s a dog person’s thing. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen Quigley be this weird. Maybe it’s because it’s Julia Roberts the dog doesn’t like…
Anyway, if you need some laughter today… here you go.
