Fun Monday!

Assignment: My drive to work never fails to produce a giggle for me, which inspired this week's Fun Monday Challenge: Take your camera with you as you go about your business and take a picture of the things that make you laugh along the way. I was originally thinking about signs, since that's what usually does it for me, but I left it open to your interpretation.

Host: Sayre

So many things make me laugh on a daily basis. Today I laughed at a picture of a coworkers new puppy, just because he was so itty bitty and cute, and she named him Pierre. I laugh at a sign on the way to work almost every day, and if I can remember, I will take a picture of this sign so you can laugh at it too.

Earlier this week, I laughed at this. That is Atlanta news, at Chateau Elan, just North of the city.

I also laughed at this in the past week, because animals just make me laugh.

But what made me laugh the most is this. Below is the transcript of a drunken IM (that has been cleaned up, so as not to offend anyone) between myself and a friend, after I had gone on a date with The Brit. I have left all the typos in, so you can better imagine the drunkenness. This is me, trying to describe what happened, and the hilarity that ensues:

Friend: ok i am here!
Friend: im being a loser and staying in tongiht
Southern Doll: hahHAHthat was fast
F: no im on downloading music
F: im just invisible
SD: ok, so date was good
SD: no real warning signs, we get along, both jokesters....it was fun
SD: coolr restaurant, he paid, OH MY GOD HE STANDS UP WHEN I GO TO THE BATHROOM
SD: so, we are saying goodbe and he kisses me
SD: the ksis was good....but you know how when a kiss goes from just kissing to making out?
F: ah hahahah yeah

SD: ok, so the kiss makes that switch, and the kiss is still good, but it 's like when that switch happens, all of a sudden his palm starts making out with the back of my head
SD: i'm talking you shouldn't get a tangle that big unless you are doing the missionary nasty
F: you are joking
SD: no!!!
SD: it totally made me start to laugh
SD: and THEN
SD: he was like, oh, i found a spot!

Wow, blogger has been giving my all kinds of errors this morning so I'm so glad I can finally leave you a comment.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for that grape smashing video. I haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. Holy crap that was funny. I had tears running down my cheeks so I had to share it with my office mate and the attorney across the hall. I'm sure people around us were wondering what all three of us were howling with laughter over.

As far as your beehive, can you sing at all? You could be Atlanta's own version of Amy Winehouse! Why do some men have to ruin a perfectly good moment sometimes?

Now you know I had to laugh at the Grape video!! And my husband always thinks I'm so wrong when I laugh at people falling. But I can assure you if anyone ever captured me tripping or falling, I know it would provide humor for someone out there!

Thanks for sharing!

Well! I just found you in the Fun Monday List and I am literally crying. Crying and laughing my ass off.

Okay, so anyway. Funny stuff you post. I'll be back. Oh and be careful on those dates.
