A Blonde Walks Into a Bar and Says "Ouch"

Some music is both a
comedy and a tragedy
I couldn't decide if I wanted to talk about comedians or musicians.  Now, there are plenty of "musicians" whose talents are laughable (yes, I am looking at you Kesha with the dumbass $ sign I refuse to use), but that's not the same as being a comedian, because you don't really mean for people to laugh.

Also, I don't mean the kind of "comedian" who might live at your house who says crap like "I'd rather be fresh than stale."

I'm talking about real comedians (maybe we'll discuss music tomorrow.  I'll let you know). 

Anyway, I LOVE good comedy.  L-O-V-E.  Watching a good stand-up comedy special is one of the few things my husband I can do together where I know things are not going to deteriorate into a conversation that ends with "Well, if you think that, then you're stupid."  "No, you are."

If laundry makes him happy,
who am I to take it away?
Don't get me wrong, my husband is lovely.  But, annoying me for sport is one of his main hobbies.  His other main hobby is doing laundry right before company is expected.  I know that doesn't SOUND like a problem, but it is.  If company is coming, and you only have an hour or so to clean up crap from all over the house, that is NOT the time to catch up on the laundry.  That is the time to start shoving crap into closets and drawers.  That is the time to run out and get dessert since you meant to make it but didn't.  That is the time to yell at the children that they are ungrateful and unhelpful and we can't have anything kept nice around here because of them.  It is not the time to ask me if my jeans go in the dryer or get hung up (and honestly, how many times are you going to ask me that).

Yes, I did gloss over the fact that my husband is the one doing the laundry.   It's out now.  He has a full-time job and I am at home and he does all the laundry.  He insists he does it because I do it wrong.  I do not.  I am the one who showed him.  But if you think for one minute I am going to fight him for it...can't give you a bigger "as if."

Stop with the raised eyebrows and look of pity for my husband who's doing the laundry every night after work.  I know you are thinking that I am ungrateful to complain about when he does the laundry, but, as I would say to him, "If you think that, then you're stupid."  (reminder: you're line is "No, you are.")

You are perhaps starting to see why we try to watch a lot of comedy?  He's difficult.  You can see that, right?

Anyhoo, you got me all sidetracked and we aren't even talking about comedians.  As I was saying, we love comedy.  Last weekend we went with friends to see Kathleen Madigan.  LOVE her!!  I wish I could hang out with her.  I am sure we would be BFFs.  If you happen to talk to her, don't tell her I said that because I think she will be worried I am little stalker-y and not want to meet me.

We also love Wanda Sykes.  Her latest special "I'ma Be Me" is a riot!!  She does a whole bit on Spanx.  Honestly, we were both crying.  She named her roll of fat on her stomach - Esther Rolle.  Get it!?!?  Bahahaha.  I am also extremely impressed that she is wearing a leather blazer up on stage, and despite the lights and all, doesn't even seem to get sweaty the whole time. (**note - clip is not appropriate for children or humorless people and has cursing**)

We are going to see Lewis Black next month in Atlantic City.  That should be fun.  He is constantly furious, which would make me want to mess with him to get him more riled up if I was friends with him in real life.  Again, don't repeat that if you are talking to him because I am pretty sure that's not going to go in the plus column of the should Lewis Black be friends with me debate.

To sum up our visit:
1.  Some people are funny, but don't mean to be (Kesha).
2.  Some people are not funny, but think they are (people who might live at your house).
3.  My husband does the laundry and will try to get you to like him more than me, but he's stupid.
4.  Fun comedy clips to keep you amused if I did not.


  1. You did amuse me. Thanks! I needed a smile.

  2. Love the synopsis at the end. My short term memory is very poor, so I really appreciate you summing it all up at the end for me. I think more people should do that.
