Laura Needs a Lift

I am having one of those days where I have to monitor my feelings.  I repeat to myself that what I am experiencing is more a symptom of physical and emotional tiredness than anything else.   When I get like this I feel a lot of self-loathing.  Of course, that is unpleasant and as this post proves, not only for me.  I am willing to share the angst.  On a day like today,  I think of everything I don't like about my life at the moment, then I go on to think about how, really, I deserve every one of those things.  It can become quite the pity party, I assure you. 

Anyway, sorry, but as the title says, laura needs a lift.  You can help!  Well, probably a lot of you already have, since after I finish this, I am going to go around reading your thanks in advance for that!  But, if you can find it in your heart to tell me a joke or something in comments...well, that would be awesome.  Thanks in advance for that, too :-)

I'm feeling a little that way myself today. In my case, it's a matter of hormone levels crashing. I love being a girl. ha ha.

I'm just stressing about stuff that's real, but I normally don't obsess about the negative as much. I suppose my whining isn't helping. sorry. I wish I knew a good dirty limerick for you.

I feel like I am coming out of a bit of a slump, and it feels really good. Although I did blow a gasket at a phone salesperson last night, so its still touch and go. Sending some happy thoughts your way. :)

Two peanuts were walking down the street one day, when suddenly one was a-salted.

Jim Gaffigan was talking about how pale he is and how people give him advice about it:

"You're going out? You should wear sunscreen!"

His response: "Really?? Should I wipe my ass with a rake?"

That line always cracks me up, so I hope it does with you too!

Three guys walked into a bar, the fourth one ducked.

Take my wife, please.

I said, "That's not a pig, that's my wife."

Did somebody step on a duck?

Hey, you two should get a room.

There, some punch lines for you. Hope this helped lift you up.

hey girly girl! i nominated you for an award - is that a lift?

crazy4coens said...

a string walked into a bar, a little worn at the edges...and i don't remember the rest but the punch line is......"I'm a frayed knot!"

NoRegrets said...

Aw. It worked one day to hear how someone else's life was more horrible than yours. So, think about it - you aren't moving shit, cleaning shit, packing shit, etc.
yeah, that likely doesn't work too well.
How about you allow yourself to do one nice thing for yourself? Even a small think like stepping outside for 5 minutes when you normally wouldn't? Drinking two cups of coffee instead of one? Calling up your loved one and saying hello?

NoRegrets said...

Churlita - ACK! we are on the same schedule!

Sebastien said...

awww, sorry to hear it Laura. Just remember, everything works out in the end. Uh, actually it doesn't as my girlfriend likes to say. But hey, having illusions and being delusional has served me very well so far and kept me happy, hehe.

Trying to think of something funny I can send you. will post it in a follow-up comment.

Sebastien said...

my sadistic nature will always find this picture hilarious, it cracks me up every time. Kangeroo forearm shiver to the face.

Churlita: I can usually explain these things with THAT thing, but not this time.
Just one of those brain loops I guess.
If you ever come up with a dirty limmerick you are welcome to pass it along :-)

Secret: Thank you for the good thoughts. It helps, for reals :-) And it is nice to hear about someone leaving a slump behind.

Tara: bwahahaha! A-salted, hee hee! And I love Jim Gaffigan! Thank you so much.

AlienCG: ha! Yes, those definitely gave me a lift. It is like getting to dessert right away, going straight for the punchline :-D

Crazy4Coens: That award DEFINITELY lifted my spirits, thank you!
A-frayed knot - hee hee! Awesome.

NoRegrets: I will say I am very glad not to be moving house at the moment. I am happy to leave that to you and M :-)
And I do love the idea of giving myself a little treat. That is a very nice idea, thank you.
Lol'd at you and Churlita sync'd up too, so that was fun...

Sebastien: Aw, your gf is a practical girl:-) I do think illusion and delusions are very is sadistic humor. That picture is perfect, thank you! hee hee!

I have a joke.. What's the worst crime a Transvestite can commit?

*male fraud*

laura b. said...

Mrs: hee hee! That's good! Short enough that I can remember it and it made me laugh :-)
