Laughter or/a Smile: Some days are harder than others

I have a motto in life, laugh every day. No matter how bad you feel, no matter how much the world sucks, without laughter you feel no hope. For laughter is hope in disguise.  But what about those days you feel no ray of hope?

Those are the most important days to find a smile no matter how small or how quick it goes by. For that brief moment of laughter is sometimes the glue that gets you through your day, reminds you that it will be ok.

I promise you have that moment even if you don’t recall when it happened. Maybe it was an ant trying to carry a load to big, maybe it was a little boy telling him mommy he was big enough to tie his own shoes, or maybe it was an older couple riding in on their Harley with Santa Hats on their Helmets and the white ball flapping around.

You may not remember the little smile or chuckle, but it was there. And it was in that moment that you felt alive and it might be ok. Your conscious might not remember it, but your subconscious does.

When I challenge you to smile each day, all I’m asking is for you try and consciously feel the warmth of the smile. Even for that brief moment. The hope it gives will last longer. And don’t we all deserve a little hope even in our darkest days?


(Wow, and not one sarcastic moment in that! – Whoops! till I typed that.  LOL  – oh well, guess I was just trying to give you your one brief moment of laughter – Cuz you know you just smiled!)  


Committing to 365 Days of Laughing – Will You Join Me?

As 2011 comes to a close, I’ve begun thinking about what my 2012 New Year’s Resolution will be.

I don’t drink or smoke so giving those up would make me an instant winner in the “did she keep her resolution” game. Gold star for me already! I rock!

I could always do the old standby of losing weight. But let’s face it – in a few weeks in I’d want a Coke & a scoop of ice cream. Who am I kidding; I’ll cave to both of those in less than 24 hours.

I could be determined to be less of a procrastinator – but I’d just put it off.

Then I thought, hey, I could be less sarcastic to those I love – but then I realized that was like asking me not to breathe. Besides, my family and friends hardly hear from me now, if I stopped being sarcastic with them, they’d never hear from me.

So I have decided to share with you my wonderful readers the one thing that keeps me going each and every day. Laughter. You see, I have committed to laughing every day no matter what. So my New Year’s Resolution will be sharing one thing each day of the year that made me laugh or I found funny.

I’d love it, if after you read my daily laugh, you would maybe leave a post or comment on one thing that made you laugh or smile that day. Let’s dedicate 2012 to making each other smile a little more in this fucked up world.   🙂

(Yeah, that whole giving up swearing resolution obviously wasn’t going to work either)

So hear is to more laughter in all our lives in 2012~

Drats, I just realized next year is leap year, now I’ll have to stretch my self to come up with 366!  LOL……..

Bingo Whining – Pass the ear plugs

Ok, I’m not too proud to say I’m a bingo player. I play on-line more than in a live bingo hall but that is more out of convenience.

I’ve been playing at my site for over a year now and I love it there. Great chat hosts and some great bingo buddies to chat with. If you come and play with us, you might find me being my smart ass self usually picking on the chat hosts or the “regular” players. That is if I’m not “justcuzgetoutofthefreezer” as a certain chat host says.

Which now brings me to my weekly rant.  BINGO WHINING

Ok, I know losing is painful. I know it sucks losing your money. It becomes frustrating after long periods of no wins. It can even make you so angry you want to kill “waldo”. Yes Julie, I’m talking to you. (inside joke). Hell even I get depressed and feel like a big old loser some days (like this week for sure). But please STOP THE WHINING! I’m not talking about the occasional whine out of frustration. The needing to share your pain because you can’t take it anymore. I get that, I really do. And I’m ok with this type of whining.

Here are the whiners that drive me bonkers (and no it’s not a far drive)

A)   The people that will win and then like 7-8 games later will be whining that they can’t win a game. Then they will win again and say it’s their first win even though we all can see they have been winning. I swear these people think they should win every game.

B)   The people that think if they whine each and every game the fake bingo caller will hear them and feel sorry for them and give them a win just to shut them up.

C)   The people that are new, use free money, play 5-6 games then whine the site is rigged and no one can win here. Hello, winner every game. And by the way, we don’t want you to win, cuz then you stay and then you will just become the whiner mentioned in section A or B above

D)   People whining about the same winners all the time. Yes, I agree, it can get very frustrating seeing the same names over and over. But hey, everyone gets on a run and then there are those that spend TONS of money to get those wins. They are the same people you ALWAYS see in the deposit specials. Trust me, they Lose it as fast as they win it. They are gamblers and can’t help it. They spend hundreds of dollars to your $25 a week for those wins.  LOL

E)   Math lesson people. If you buy 60 cards ($15) then you have to win every 6-8 games or you lose. STOP BUYING all them cards and maybe, just maybe your money might not run out in a couple of hours. If you keep buying that many, quit whining about it, you are doing it to yourself.

F)   Oh who are we kidding, you are whining for the bingo win so you can use the winnings to go play slots. Face it, slots are your crack and crack is wack as Whitney says.

Ok, I feel better now. I know this blog will not stop the whining. Hell, I’ve been losing all my free bbs (fake bingo money for you that don’t play). I’m getting sick of losing too. Maybe I should start whining. Nahhh, not worth it. I’ll just be smart and take a day or two off and hope my bingo mojo comes back.

Till we rant again readers…..

Next time – we talk about Common Courtesy
