Yeah, you read that right. Deep down inside I have always harbored this desire to be a comedienne. People who KNOW me say I already am one. I'm not talking just everyday funny sense of humor kind of stuff. I'm talking telling jokes on a stage, acting in comedies and writing humor.
Until last night I had never expressed this dream out loud to anyone, not even the hubster. A dear friend was over for some crafting playtime and we were talking about unfulfilled dreams. I admitted to Andrea (thanks for listening!!!) my dream and she didn't think it was so far fetched or crazy. And now that it's out there, maybe it isn't.
Now the likelihood of me becoming a professional stand-up comic at this stage of my life is slim-considering where I live isn't exactly comedy club land. (well, my workplace resembles....nevermind) And I don't think Hollyweird is gonna come calling looking for me to star in their latest sitcom.
What I can do?? Write. If you've been reading this blog you kinda got a taste of my decidely warped sense of humor. I've always said that it's a GOOD thing I don't have one of those cartoon thought bubbles over my head so people can read what I'm thinking because I'd be in TROUBLE.
I'll still be posting pix of my yard sale/thrift finds and redos, tutorials and pix of the never-ending house painting project. Once I get back into doing some ART I'll post that.
I'm fairly new to blogging (since February 2010) and have been wondering what direction to take with blogging. I hope y'all don't mind reading some of my observations and stories because I enjoy writing about stuff from the funny side. I've always got some kind of internal (sometimes external) monologue going on about what's happening around me. I'll just share it with the blogworld.
For instance- commercials. Is your intelligence as insulted by these as mine? Of course, sometimes I have NO CLUE what they are advertising. Any of you remember the "feminine hygiene commercials" of a few years ago? Remember the one where the lady is running through the airport with the giant box of "products" in her bag and it happens to fall out in the middle of the busy concourse? The one where a group of random ladies gather over the box of "products" laying there on the BUSY airport floor and have a girls chatfest about it? Remember?
I always said this was thought up by MALE advertising execs because it had no basis in reality.
First-- no woman is going to carry a giant BOX of the products in her bag. She'll carry some dicreetly hidden among her other stuff.
Second-- if for some unearthly reason she is carrying the giant box, if it falls out she is gonna keep on truckin' through the airport acting like she's never SEEN it before.
Third-- a group of random women won't be chatting about the "product" ANYWHERE in the vicinty--they'll be avoiding the box themselves.
I'm just insulted that some ad execs thought we women are that stupid that we would WANT to buy their brand.
Anyhow--random poll here. My wedding anniversary is coming up the 19th. Think I should invest in some rhinestones and eyelash glue and surprise the hubster with some vajazzling? He already thinks I'm crazy.....
