Eight Things that Entertain Me

This is not a meme. Nor is it a mime. (You didn't seriously think I'd post a serious mime picture, did you? Get serious!) Mimes will be shot on sight. They do not entertain me except by being mercilessly gored by avenging unicorns or similar activities. On with the list.

Rude people: I encountered 2 of them today. Have you ever noticed that rude people are almost inevitably stupid? Every now and then it's fun to have a good laugh at a stupid person (a definite shortcoming of mine, I know) and I feel no compunction about laughing at the rude ones. ^_^

Free Stuff (in this case, digital scrapbooking downloads)

Pure Dead _____ books by Deb Gliori - a total scream. Possibly even funnier than Lemony Snicket. ^_^

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
. . .So he huffed and he puffed and he puffed and he huffed, but the house didn't fall down.
But the pig wasn't called big and bad for nothing. He went and fetched his sledgehammer, and he knocked the house down. . .

"Please will you give us some of your barbed wire, a few iron bars and armor plates, and some heavy metal padlocks?" they said to the rhinoceros who was driving the truck.
"Sure," said the rhinoceros. . . He also gave them some Plexiglas and some reinforced steel chains, because he was a generous and kindhearted rhinoceros. . .

Your Blogs (Ooooh! Suck-up!! ^_^ ) Oooh, and this one that I just stumbled across.

Psychic Nikky predictions

Andy McKee:

And if nothing else, click this one to see the harp guitar. O_O

And Erik Mongrain to finish it off:

What entertains you? No sucking up. I already took care of that. I don't think this post can handle any more of it. ^_^

Sorry for sucking up...but that is mind blowing stuff! Wow. THAT entertains me. And Tom too. Wow. Thanks, sistah! You rock.

Candace said...

That's not sucking up. I meant you can't say THIS blog. ^_^ I agree. That is some mind-blowing stuff. I added a couple more links while you were probably commenting. :)

Gawpo said...

Oh yeah?, well, while Cindra was posting her comment about what she and Tom had just witnessed, I was still in the process of GETTING MY MIND BLOWN!!! Croly Hap! That just amazed me. Of course, now I'm a little depressed over the fact that all I can do is play the guitar missionary. What McKee did in the first example was simply pure doggie style while hanging from the ceiling fan. Erik Mongrain? If I tried that, it would be Gawpo Migrain. Where'dja come up with that stuff, Canacia? Truly wonderful, you are.

Candace said...

Is that not just stositively punning? MuNKi sent me the name of Andy McKee because a coworker sent him a yahoo vid link. I looked him up on YouTube and then, of course, found Mr. Mongrain as well in those sidebar links at YouTube. I can't really take any credit unless it's for having the good taste to enjoy them. ^_^ I can't even play the guitar Missionary yet. :-P

What entertains me? Watching pretty, fake-tanned, skinny, bleached-toothed women say and do really stupid things. I can't help it. Example: the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader reality show on CMT, and the Miss America reality show they showed last night ("I wish I had a photogenic memory").

I sometimes let Robbie Williams entertains me. And the things your president says.

Hey that guy is good!

What entertains me? Stand up comedy. My favorite night out. They don't even have to be very good. I saw Ellen Degeneris last time she was here; they had to peel me off the floor.

I'll be sampling saucy betty in more depth soon. Anybody who quotes Pale Fire in their blog title has got my attention.

ARM said...

Yes, it is very entertaining to mock rude/stupid people. I don't know why.

And I saw those pure dead books at B&N yesterday! If my husband hadn't been dragging me along to the check out stand, I would have stood there longer to look at them.

Mind = blown.

Trundling Grunt said...

My new grandchild amuses me. Check him out over at my place!

Egan said...

Wow Tall Chick, you have YouTubitis really bad. I need to get you in some 12 step program stat.

Jay said...

Rude people are asking for it.

Anonymous said...

Sucking up and separating verbs from their particles are two things up with which I do not put, C.

I am also entertained by spoonerisms. For example, I love cunning stunts and shining wits. :)

Toby said...

For the life of me I can't think of his name, but there's a blind guy in a wheelchair who plays a lap top steel guitar (I know that's not what it's called) but, he is awesome. I'm entertained by his music.

ldbug said...

what entertains me? when my cat tries to act cool and slips or gets a paw wet.

the silly primping girls in my office.

hmmmm, can't think of anything else right now...

Candace said...

Kitkat - OK, that is definitely entertaining. ^_^

Poly - I don't know any of Robbie's stuff, but he's a hottie. (I know he's not into chicks, but that certainly doesn't reduce his heat factor ^_^ ) I hear GW uses some of the words SNL makes up for his character in their skits. That amuses me! ^_^

Joe - I do love stand up. And I really enjoy improv. ^_^ Saucy Betty definitely has a fun blog!

Arm - OMG they are so good! I hate it whem MuNKi is in a hurry to leave the bookstore. He's been really good about it lately, though. Yay!

Grumblemurray - Me too. Cool, huh? ^_^

TG - you have the most cutesy-wootsey wittle grandthiunggumy I've ever seen! And what an appetite! ^_^

Monkey Boy - are you going to stage an intervention? Is it constitutional to force someone to have a YouTubeectomy? Fascist! ^_^

Jay - I agree! They might not know it, but they are! ^_^

Winters - I am glad to hear it! And roonerisms totally Spock! Yours particularly. ^_^

Do you like Tom Swifties?

"It's got to be below zero," she said icily.

"Someone's let the air out of my tires," she said flatly.

"You've lit my tie on fire!" he exclaimed hotly.

Toby - let me know if you think of his name! I'd like to check him out. I can't get enough of Erik Mongrain.

Ldbub - you're BACK!!! Is your blog back, too? What happened to it? Yoikes!

LOL! It totally cracks me up when the cats do stuff like that. >^_^<

Heh - silly primping girls. Sometimes the same fate befalls them that plagues the cats. It's always nice to be present for a moment like that. ^_^

Egan said...

Yes, it's fair to force you to stop posting YouTube crap on your own blog. I'm fascist like that. I bet your next post will include at least three YouTube clips just to piss me off and even include a meme or brief nudity.

Gawpo said...

Winters would like those sockcucking futhermucking bonsofsitches I have to put up with at Safeway.

Candace said...

Egan - Ooooh! you've given me a great idea. }:->

Gawpo - That sounds dirty either way, doesn't it? So does "Fuddruckers." We went there one time and I had to be very careful in pronouncing it when telling the kids what it was called. :-P Wappy Hednesday!! Wappy. . . that's fun to say! ^_^

Egan said...

I was close, two YouTube clips. One about cats, and one about a French speaking robot. Nice touch.

Candace said...

C'est bon, non?
