{December 3, 2012}   Joke of the Day 3/12/12

Been awhile – lets be honest. Been a crazy few weeks and while contemplating what I have been upto I realise that at least once a week I am reminded that  I am getting older. I am now calling them my ‘Statler and Waldorf moments’

The most recent being sitting in a balcony seats earlier this week at the Bozar watching a show. Todays joke of the day is a Statler & Waldorf image and some of their best lines.



Statler: That was wonderful!
Waldorf: Bravo!
S: I loved it!
W: That was great!
S: Well, it was pretty good.
W: Well, It wasn’t bad.
S: There were parts that weren’t pretty good, though.
W: It could’ve been a lot better.
S: I didn’t really like it.
W: It was pretty terrible.
S: It was bad.
W: It was awful!
S & W: Boo! Boo!

And an age related one 🙂

Statler: That Johnny Depp is everywhere! What’s he got that I haven’t, besides youth, good looks, virility, fame, wealth…
Waldorf: …functioning kidney, gallbladder, hip…
Statler: Alright! Alright! Alright!


{December 29, 2010}   Joke of the Day 29/12/10

During christmas there is so much TV that I just sit here in a “stuffed to the brim” state due to the copius amounts of food ma makes for us (apparently I dont eat when I am not at home, I dont think she gets what I do!) and watch tv in a daze thinking about that last slice of cake I just stuffed into my mouth! So when I see something funny it must be shared!

A funny piece of advertising!

Enjoy! (Hope you are all eating well)

{July 27, 2010}   Learning how to SMIZE!

To have a photo taken for my work website and to ensure I don’t look grumpy or miserable in anyway

I am a naturally happy person, apart from when it comes to taking photos. When asked by my employer whether it was possible to have a photo taken worthy of being placed on the website and wondered if I knew of a photographer. Obviously my mind went to the only person who I would tolerate taking my picture and photoshopping it in a way that there are no food stains remaining on my face or that I am not sticking my tongue out – the completely awesome princess misia.

Knowing that I am difficult person to photo, I should try and make the photographers life easy but I really don’t! The photographer, in combination with my sister and many other avid fashion fanatics are big fans of Americas Next Top Model so the word “Smize” kept being shouted at me on Saturday morning to the puzzlement of our surrounding neighbours.

I don’t smile in a photogenic way naturally as there are many issues I have to overcome – my odd teeth – my crazy thick hair that always look like I’ve been playing with a balloon just before the picture was taken and the fact that I cant smile. So a few days prior to the shoot, I sat at home compiling a list of jokes I had seen on twitter and facebook so when I was told to laugh I would resort one of the jokes and totally crack myself up. Do you think this worked? Errr NO!

Everytime I had to think of something funny, I thought of a joke then looked even more annoyed at the camera as the joke didn’t amuse me anymore. There are series of photos where you can see the internal monologue I am having trying to think of something funny so I can look naturally happy. GEEEZ! The odd thing is – I am a relatively funny person (well I seem to think so, on a normal day I totally crack myself up) and when needed I am unable to produce even a one liner to make myself smile. So this post is dedicated to the photographer, BFF and awesome cook whose life I make a complete misery whenever I feel the need for a new photo!
