TO BE FUNNY OR FUNNY LOOKIN', WHCH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

My oldest daughter writes on her blog only occasionally but when she does she says funny things that I don't think she meant to be funny. Yesterdays blog was probably un-funny-to-her-life, but funny-to-me. Click here.

My other kids are funny too.

And I am funny lookin' so we're all pretty happy about things.

Hope you are funny too and if you can't be funny, then funny lookin' isn't so bad. At least you'll be memorable. There isn't much I hate worse than being un-memorable. Except this. People in my ward misspell my name. They get emails from me every stinkin' week--I'm the Relief Society Communication Specialist--isn't that a funny title. See? Funny. Anyway, I get emails from some of them occasionally--they even reply to my emails, and they call me "Lynn." My emails say "from Lynne Snyder." And their emails say, "Dear Lynn..."

I tell you, this is beginning to bother me. Now if they would say, "Dear person who looks like she's lost a lot of weight lately..." then I might be happier. But then again I might think, So, you thought I was a beached whale before, huh?

I tell you, tonight I just can't be pleased. I'm going to go read Hillary's blog again and see what she and her husband didn't tell each other because they weren't speaking. Then I will go to bed amused, instead of annoyed that my name is Lynn.

But I'm certainly annoyed that it is again after midnight and I am wide eyed and an hour and a half ago I was yawning! I don't have enough sense to pound sand in a rat hole. I'm not sure what that means but it was one of Mom's sayings and so it must mean something. Just like everything "means something" on Close Encounters of the Third Kind. And even Close Encounters of the Nerd Kind. I love those movies.

Okay, I'm going to bed now because I have become annoying, even to myself.

That is funn LYNNE! And yesterday there must have been annoyance in the Proco City air. I was fighting with it all day long.

Thanks for the laugh- can I be both?? My sister is Christine, she introduces herself as Christine, and people call her Chris!!! Makes me insane.

My smurfiness comes and goes. Some days I cry a lot, some days not. Stinks to be hormonal on top of it. Ahhhhhhh, perimenopause...

Off to go drink some coffee. hugs-

Lynnne. You are funny too when you don't know it and don't mean to be. But you make us all laugh. So thanks.

Actually, it was Closet Encounters of the Nerd Kind [emphasis added].

Speaking of funny-lookin', a friend recently related a story of a visiting authority to a Singles Ward. He said something that sounded like "you're a bunch of sixes looking for tens; fix your expectations and get married."

I laughed. Being a six and all. (I got a 9 though, so I can't complain.)

Hrmph. Wikipedia, the Veritable Font of all Knowledge™ says it's Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind. How rude.

It's funny that Trent thinks he's a six.
