Gnarls.

So, picture this: A white Saturn Vue, driving north on a highway in southern Iowa. Inside is a woman in her late-no, mid-okay---late forties....wet hair, minimal makeup...after all, it is 96 degrees there today, humidity in the one thousand percentile...and hair and makeup in that kind of weather is a lose-lose....anyway, she is driving along, listening to her Gnarls Barkley CD, because she is cool like that, (actually there is one song on it that she loves)...and she starts thinking about her blogging friends, and her good buddies, and that makes her think of Soul Survivor, one of her good buddies...and the last post she had written, if you don't know what I am talking about, you will have to head over there-the link is on my page...and that makes her think "he chokee, he chokee"...and she starts laughing out loud, because my goodness that has struck her funny bone, and she cannot stop laughing. All. alone. in. the. vehicle. And then she realizes that Gnarls Barkley is singing to her "that makes you crazy.....that makes you crazy...."
And she realizes that gnarls is right, and that makes her laugh even more. Do you suppose the crazy police will show up with their funny white coat?

What a delightful post, Jamie! Would have love to been someone driving by, and probably pulling WIDELY around you, just in case you'd been hitting the sauce! LOL Sometimes I am thankful I live alone, when I read people's blogs and find something funny I sit here and laugh myself silly - if other folks were around, they would surely call the white coats. Only other bloggers would understand!

Soul is a hoot, isn't she?! Did you know that God used YOUR BLOG to bring her and I together as friends? We match up on so many things that it's down right eerie, hence the "Soul Sister" thing we toss back and forth. So that makes you one of God's angels, I think!!

Soul is a hoot---you are correct! And I think you are, too. An angel, hmmm....I always knew I was angelic, but angel may be too much!

Nothing like a good laugh, even when you are alone. I rarely laugh at things in magazines or books but find myself cracking up all the time at the storied people blog about. My friend Angie, over at acremonium has had me cracking up out of control with some of her blogging. Soul is another funny one, and Josie? Well she has me floored. There are several guys who have that ability as well to make me lose it.

I didn't realize that you the same person as SimonSays until today. I read your comments at Josie's blog and thinking...that Simon is a very sensitive guy.

If the crazy police show up, it's probably just to join in the fun! :-)

Gina, that is funny--I guess you would think I was a man...thanks so much for stopping by here! I agree, Angie makes me laugh out loud, too---and obviously, Soul and Josie. A great group, we are!

y'all have me blushing and cracking up at the same time!
josie, as for the laughing out loud while reading blogs...with people around who have no clue what's so damned funny.... well... i do it all the time, and YES, it's true, my hubby and girl do think i'm nuts. but they are getting used to it...and actually, on occasion ask me to read what's so funny.
like now, for instance. i busted a gut reading this post of jamie driving and laughing about the "he chokee thing"...
i had to read it to him. he laughed too.
of course i was only like 19 or 20 when that whole thing happened, but he has heard the story... at least a dozen times by now...you know how it gets when you've been married this long... you gotta tell people shit like that right? so of course by now, he has the entire scenario embedded in his mind. LOl

and ya.. the three musketeers! (muskhooteers)..... how bout just hooters? LOL

gina that's funny you thought she was a guy. hard not to though... with her there "chokin her chicken" for all the world to see.
ACK!
did i just say that!
sorry

Jamie...COOL NEW PICTURES!!! I was delighted to visit your log just now and find them. You are beautiful girl, and so young looking!! H is a cutie too. Poor little Crazy Dog looks naked, but I bet he feels so much cooler. Does he get embarassed when you laugh at him?

Too funny... the Google ad at the top of your page is for info on Night Sweats... guess they are tying into the content of your post! ROFL I was working out in the storage room at the farm today... no AC, and as the sweat poured down my back and dripped off my face, I sure thought of you! Just call us "sweat sisters", or better yet "Red Hot Mamas"! :-)

You ARE hip! And HOT, BTW. Thanx for the sidebar pix! ;)

Missy A said...

because the furry one and I both know what online stuff is about (2 comps, we met online long story)
Sometimes when we are in the supermarket a can of beans or pickles with just have us cracking up laughing we must look a right pair of fools cackling away over the canned goods.
I know exactly what you mean though the laughing thing I'll swear sometimes its loud enough to wake the neighbors ..which wouldn't be good the cemetery is next door LoL
