Friday’s Funnies

Well, look what day it is again! These weeks are going by so quickly! Soon Christmas will be here and the year will be gone. I just hope certain “other things” will be gone shortly thereafter, too! 

Can you believe I’m actually getting this week’s funnies out this early? Ha! One point for me! It’s really not early but sometimes it’s nearly midnight before I get it published! I hope you like these better than last week’s. Be sure to comment your faves at the bottom of the post!

First, here’s a set of Animal Selfies I thought was extremely comical! I hope you do, too!

Do you have a favorite? Or two or three? I got the biggest chuckle out of the naked kid in the window…and the potluck idea! Snort! I hope you liked at least a few of these, my friends!

Are you enjoying the Fall weather? Here in SW Missouri, it is cooling down and I’m so happy! I’m wearing sweats right now and I’m looking forward to having to wear a sweater! What do you look forward to the most in the Fall?

Have a super weekend! I’ll meet you back here on Monday! Stay safe and enjoy the season!

It’s A Wonder…

Sometimes, I amaze myself at how brilliant I can be and other times, it’s a wonder I can walk and chew gum at the same time. Seriously. I’ll explain.

I can fix most every problem I have ever had with my computer, laptop, printer, etc., with little to no help. Sometimes I have enlisted the help of my brilliant, tech-savvy brother in law, but most times I’ve not had any help, other than my own research and troubleshooting skills. Since we got our very first internet-capable computer back in 1993, I can count on one hand how many times we’ve taken the computer to a computer repair shop. That was in the early days of my computer experience and I have learned a LOT since then!

Over the years, I’ve had to call tech support for one thing or another… More times than not, they’ve been of no help. I normally end up fixing the problem myself because they can’t. I’ve done hundreds of hours researching one issue or another. Last week, I had a problem with my wireless printer, and I thought it would be quicker for them to help me fix it but…after 45 minutes the problem still wasn’t solved and they referred me to someone else. I ended up fixing the problem myself. I should have done that in the first place but I was trying to save some time, since they’re supposed to be the experts. Snort! 

Moving along… A couple of weeks ago my Android tablet stopped working. It turned on but it wouldn’t connect to the internet. No matter what I did, it wouldn’t connect. My WiFi was working, other devices connected, and it had just been used less than 12 hours prior. I couldn’t figure it out so I decided to reset to factory settings. One of the first things you do when you reset is to set up your internet connection, but it wouldn’t/couldn’t cooperate. I tried and tried and tried again…for days. I couldn’t find any information online that actually applied to this issue. The tablet is several years old…10 years maybe…so I figured it’s time for a new tablet.

After a 2 week wait, my new 10″ Android tablet arrived and along with being WiFi capable (aren’t they all these days?), you can also insert a SIM card and use it to make phone calls. That’s probably the norm with tablets these days, I don’t know. I don’t really need to use my tablet as a phone unless my phone decides to take a dump, but I thought I’d be brave and check it out. Well, check it out I did without any research – IF they had included a decent instruction manual then I would have at least read that – but I didn’t read anything. I don’t know anything about SIM cards, never really thought much about them before, so the fact that I didn’t research or read or ask anyone anything was UNBELIEVABLY STUPID of me! I didn’t think about the SIM card in my phone being a micro card. I put that micro card in the tablet’s SIM card slot and LOST it. FOREVER. It was stuck in there and nothing I did could retrieve it. The new tablet does not take a micro SIM card. STUPID ME.

So, I had to buy a new SIM card for my phone which I am waiting for FedEx to bring at this very moment.

For someone who can troubleshoot, research, and fix many computer issues, and normally does research on something every damn day…I was incredibly stupid and my brother in law is probably still laughing at me.

Sometimes it’s a wonder I can walk and chew gum at the same time.

PS

Last night I decided to turn on my old tablet and see one last time if it would cooperate. Well, guess what?!? I was able to set the connection and I was online in less than a minute. I was LIVID!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Here it is Friday night at 10:45pm and I still haven’t finished this week’s funnies! I’m a mess, folks! I was doing so well all week but then just didn’t get to it tonight until now. So, on with it! I have no clue which meme won the last Friday’s Funnies post so we’ll just forget about that from now on. You can still mention your faves in the comments! I’d love to know which ones you like! I hope you enjoy these!

And so, that’s it. I didn’t have as many good ones this week but maybe next week will be better! I hope you enjoyed this batch. I liked the loose gravel meme. It made me think of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.

Have a great weekend, folks! Be safe, laugh often, and be kind to others.

Earworm – The Sounds of Silence

I’m laughing while trying to type this…

A few nights ago, I opened the refrigerator to grab my bottle of Kahlua Mudslide and immediately started to sing to the tune of The Sounds of Silence, the following lyrics:

Hello, Mudslide, my old friend… I’ve come to visit you again… Because I’m feeling bored and lonely…can’t go much longer without sleeping…and I’m sure with you I’ll sleep well…very well…

Well, it’s not perfect but that’s what came natural, although not in tune, and I hope you get a chuckle out of it. Feel free to finish the lyrics and share in the comments! I’m just not that talented! Enjoy!

Just Call Me Quasi

I slept in my lift chair last night…I mean, this morning. I had a Mudslide and was up until after 3am. I don’t know how long after 3am because…umm…the Mudslide. I decided my chair would be a better place for me because when alcohol enters the picture, I’m more apt to fall on my ass trying to get ready for bed.

I slept well until about 6:30am. Not a lot of sleep but I did sleep better than I do in my bed. I’m walking better as well but I have a kink in my neck and an ache in my upper back. When I looked in the mirror, I noticed my hair was sticking straight up…in the back. I looked like Quasimodo for fuck’s sake.

I have to apologize, my friends, for not posting Friday’s Funnies yesterday. I promised myself that I would try harder but time just got away from me yesterday. When I looked in my file for memes I realized I never saved one meme all stinkin’ week anyway! I just haven’t been on social media much lately. It’s actually been nice. I’m thinking of deleting a couple of my Facebook pages and maybe my Instagram account. I don’t use that one much anyway.

I crashed at about 10am, as I thought I would. I was falling asleep sitting up. I dreamed that I looked out my bedroom door, which was on the opposite wall than it really is, and saw the back door. Under the back door, I saw a huge gap between the bottom of the door and the floor and thought, “No wonder I get so many bugs and critters in my bedroom.” I then Googled (still in my dream) ‘Why do I see a gap under the door?’ and Google’s answer: ‘Perhaps you see something that really isn’t there.’ Lo and behold, I looked again, and there was no gap under the back door. See, Google is always helpful. Even in dreams. Then I woke up and realized only an hour and a half had passed. Maybe I should Google “Why is Debbie losing her mind?”

I crashed again at 2:30pm. Another hour and a half of sleep. Still looking a bit like Quasimodo, I realized sleeping in my lift chair at night instead of my bed probably isn’t the best place for me, Mudslide or not.

Have a great Labor Day weekend, and be safe and not sorry.
