Actually, let’s not. You know I’ve been traveling around the blogosphere a bit more lately (now that I”ve gotten some sleep, thank gawd) and I’ve noticed a funny little trend. It seems we are all getting a bit on the serious side. I don’t mean that in a degrogatory way – sure there are things in life that make us all serious. Give us sobering moments and pause – and we find ourselves reassessing our priorities. Nothing wrong with that, sometimes you have to go there.
However, haven’t you just had a moment when you were looking at something very serious, very important and then just got a terrible case of the giggles? I mean, no matter what you do, you just can’t keep a straight face. And honestly you’re worried that someone is going to think it’s time you got your meds adjusted?
I have lately. And a lot of it has to do with myself. I’ve been looking back at some of the stuff I’ve written and thought and my reactions to various life situations and thought, “Jeez Annie, get the fuck over yourself.” Seriously, I have. And I have thought it might be time for some clowns and bears and that maybe I should just find some really tacky theme that is so ridiculously pastel that it will make my readers wonder what planet they’ve landed on. I’m still looking for that theme and if I find it, be prepared.
In my case, ironically enough, I’ve found that if I actually strive to be giggly instead of serious – if I actually try to just laugh no matter wtf is going on – that somehow life goes better for me. Somehow whatever is bugging me seems to lose the power to bug me. That somehow things just really don’t need to be that serious. Of course it doesn’t mean that I need to be irresponsible and so forth but a bit of lightening up can’t hoit. Right?
So, I’m going to screw the serious stuff right now. Or maybe it would be better put like this: life can be fun. I dunno – me gabbering to myself again – damn where is that troll when you need him?
Anyway, you with me? Wanna have some fun? Wanna have some laughs? I sure do. And btw…I’m considering outting myself on a certain issue (no, not my sexuality) still thinking about it though. Stay tuned.
Hope you’re having a giggly Monday…. maybe this will help… a real news item
Never try to take your own picture – especially in a crappy mirror. LOL
well, at least this one came out relatively clear – hehe
