Monday absurdities

Saw a homeless guy working at his laptop in a coffeehouse yesterday. If I wrote that in a book, they'd say, "no way." But I live in CA, so all I can say is, "Way."

Saw the headline at a magazine stand, "Angelina gains 10 lbs.!" And we care about this why?

Drove alongside
a driver who held a cellphone to her ear with one hand while tapping out a cigarette with the other. Either she has three hands or ???

Met a guy recently who told me he was reading Chocolate Beach--and that it was the first novel he'd ever read all the way through. LOL, I doubt that, but I'll take it as a compliment anyway.

Attended an auction
the other night where a guitar signed by Green Day went for more than most peoples' mortgage.

life's been striking me as funny lately, giving me much fodder for books. Let's face it, truth really is stranger than fiction sometimes, don't you think? Oh, the stories I could tell you about my own relatives--lol--but I won't! Kidding, of course!!! (Don't want to be shut out for the holidays or anything :)

So what cracks you up?
What strikes you as funny in the day to day? Sometimes ya just gotta laugh.

I just wanted to say that I've been reading your blog for sometime. But this is the first time I've commented.
Keep up the great post.

The cell phone lady? She was steering with her knee! I do it all the time. Well, not because of the cell phone. Or the cigarette! I drive a stick shift, so one hand is sometimes shifting, and if the other hand is already engaged ... doing something important like, I don't know, putting trash in the little trash receptacle, say ... well, ya gotta steer somehow. ;-)

Vader. He cracks me up on a daily basis. Sometimes I wish I knew what he was thinking.

I secretly live for "shrimps" on a menu. I can't explain it. It just cracks me up.

Raymond. I can always count on him for a laugh. (Everybody loves Raymond)
