Linda’s LOL Funny #MFRWAuthor 52-Week Blog Challenge

mfrw blog challenge badge

It’s Week 18 of the #MFRWAuthor 52-Week Blog Challenge and the prompt is “What makes me laugh out loud?”

Where shall I start? I do love to laugh, sometimes inappropriately. I frequently find irony and satire quite amusing, which means I sometimes laugh out loud when politicians spew some nonsense I know they don’t mean or is incorrect. But I won’t go there today, though I will admit to being an avid fan of The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and Real Time with Bill Maher. I still miss Jon Stewart.

I don’t watch a lot of the current sit coms, but love The Big Bang Theory. The show never fails to make me laugh out loud, even the repeats. I like that the show is so smart as well as funny with quality writing and acting. My husband was a physicist, and I sometimes see glimpses of him in the characters, particularly Leonard, and before I met him I briefly hung out with a bunch of guys who remind me even more of our geeky foursome, complete with Ren Faire costumes.

12 clues of ChristmasI also enjoy humorous novels, esp. the fluffier mysteries or Regency romances. No matter how many times I read Georgette Heyer, I find myself laughing out loud. My current favorite mystery series is the Royal Spyness series by Rhys Bowen. The books are just hilarious, and I found The Twelve Clues of Christmas to be particularly clever as well as funny.

Funny quotes make me laugh, also. The other day I started talking about the series Dallas with the receptionist at the dentist’s office and she quoted J. R. Ewing:

“Once you get rid of integrity, the rest is a piece of cake.”

Though I laughed, I was aware how true that quote seems to be nowadays.

What makes you laugh?

Trying to Get Ahead of Myself: March Mini Blog Ahead

mini blog ahead In an attempt to get ahead of my usual pace, I’ve signed up for another blog challenge, the Blog Ahead Mini Challenge sponsored by The Herd Presents. This takes place between March 1 and 15, so there’s still time to sign up if you’re interested.

The idea is that between March 1 & March 15, we’re supposed to schedule fifteen additional posts to go live after the 15th. I’d love it if I could get on a schedule where my posts are scheduled ahead of time rather than at the last minute, which is sometimes the case. Wish me luck!
