humor

Yep, I’m playing on the internet again…

My days are pretty darn full with keeping this blog updated, making crafts, painting all those Paisley Chickens, writing for the Daily Holiday Blog, and oh yeah, there is the day job.  So I find myself every evening doing my best to catch up on the websites.  I work in the living room where I can usually do a little multi-tasking by watching television and writing at the same time.  Good in theory, but not always the most productive choice.

You see the hubby and my father-in-law love to watch all those crime dramas.  Every evening it is a whole line up of NCIS, Criminal Minds, Law and Order, NCIS New Orleans, NCIS Los Angeles, CSI, and most any other crime drama acronym you can think of.  When they aren’t watching dramas, they are watching the news.  Same thing, in my opinion.

I call their television viewing “All Murder all the Time”.  And I can’t stand it.  How can I write funny posts when all I can hear in the background is screaming and mayhem?  And once the guys sort out who gets to sit where, the tv show starts… I try to tell them that a little comedy might do them some good.  I mention that Modern Family is on the other channel.  How about a laugh for the evening?  I get shushed because they cannot hear that last murder.  They have to rewind.

Sigh…

So, rather than find a new room to work, I put my headset on and start Pandora in the background.  I created a few cool channels that keep me entertained with upbeat music.  And the post writing starts commencing nicely.

And then I think to myself, “It would be cool to check out that music video”.  And I end up on Youtube.  And then absolutely nothing else gets done for the evening.  You see, Youtube is a massive pit of fabulously wonderful time wasters.  Much like reality television, I become enthralled and absolutely cannot look away.  Which often results in some great finds.  So in an effort to share the wealth, I found two of my current favorites to share with you.

Often, we just window shop, and there are times that we have […]

This post brought to you by Rakuten Global Market. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m not a fan of crowded places.  But I needed more hot glue sticks for my latest Christmas project.  Turns out gluing rotini pasta to styrofoam uses up tons of hot glue.  So, against my better judgement, I found myself in […]

All I hear is blah..blah…blah…

boring meeting

Another day at Suzy’s Sitcom!  And as usual, things are a bit crazy here.  Sometimes I think my brain must look like a hoarder’s house, full of leftover beads, styrofoam, clutter, and sprinkles of glitter.  So full of clutter, in fact, that sometimes other information just doesn’t have a place to perch.  Such as one […]
