Mindless Entertainment

Posted on

Mindless entertainment…there is no true meaning too it but it sure keeps us from over thinking the little things in life…and if nothing else it can make us laugh.

I love to play my games on Facebook. I really like the card games because I really do not have to think about them too much, great time killers. Just like watching some of those crazy shows that come on at night, American Dad, is the greatest in mindless entertainment. There is nothing to think about because if you truly thought about it you would not watch it.

Hubby and I have been playing Slotmania…cheaper than the casino and totally mindless. Not to mention the fact that you can bet larger sums of money then you would ever do in real life. Like playing online poker…you cares if you lose, you can’t pay the bills with it.

There are many times late at night if I can’t sleep I put in a DVD usually of a movie I have seen a hundred times or an old sitcom, I don’t have to think about what is going on and usually then it will lull me to sleep.

There are so many things that we will do to keep from over thinking all of our problems but I believe the greatest is the mindless entertainment that we all seek out in one way or another.

Speaking of Sleeping

Posted on

Speaking of sleeping, it seems that my children suffer from the same ailment that I do, as far as sleep is concerned. They never seem to have gotten enough sleep and they have trouble falling asleep…or could it be that they only have trouble going to bed?

I have a mixed opinion on this problem. I realize that they very well could have troubles sleeping but I also think that they just never want to go to bed…they are afraid they will miss something important.

I am frequently amazed that what I hear as excuses…I’m hungry cause dinner didn’t taste that good (said child ate all her dinner), I’m hungry again (ate enough for 4 kids), I am scared (this one just makes me laugh…you have never been scared before but if you keep this up I will give you something to be scared of). These are just a few of the never-ending tale of excuses.

Last night Joey was mad at Veronica because she kept asking him to do things for her…he came down to talk to me about it and low and behold she had to follow, so he turns to her and says, “Now your legs want to work.” Got that taken care of and I never saw them again til morning.

The Sound of Laughter

Posted on

I have no idea what my own laugh sounds like unless of course I have laughed so hard I can’t breathe but that is a whole other subject. I really love the sound of laughter…it sounds so happy, even my daughters little muawhahaha has a giggle at the end. My son has this friend whose laugh is contagious it just makes me smile. Remember the sound of your child’s first laugh when everyone said it was gas? How can something so sweet be meant as gas? I love listening to my kids laugh either together or at each other…it means they are happy.

You know there are famous laughs…Burt Reynolds, Jack Nicholson especially in The Shining, Eddie Murphy, Alan Alda in MASH, Fran Drescher in The Nanny, Dr Evil from the Austin Powers movies just to name a few. Of course there are a gazillion cartoon characters with their very own unique laugh.

Laughter “they” say is the best medicine, has it ever worked for you? It has for me. Sometimes it can change your whole day. Think of how many times a day you either read or type/text the LOL for laugh out loud…but do you really? Really? Think about it sometimes we send that little message but we only smile other times we are actually truly laughing from the heart. Both are good for us but a laugh can burn more calories than a smile any old day.

I know there have been many times that the kids have tripped and it has made me laugh until they tell me that it wasn’t funny yada yada yada. Then they think about it just a bit and then they laugh too. Think about when your kids were little and you would tickle them just to hear their unique laugh. I still do that to my kids, catch them off guard or scratching their back and get them in just the right spot. We all end up laughing then.

I was just watching a show Winter Wipeout and stood there laughing at this people falling into freezing water. Like watching Ninja Warrior on Spike you can’t help but laugh, but some of that is the subtitles. Ever watched a movie that you have seen before and all of a sudden actually heard the funny part? Like trying to retell a joke that you found funny but you start laughing so hard you can’t get the words out!!! That is some of the best medicine.
