Your weekly dose of funny.

I am taking a trip this coming week. Without my children. I love them. I'll miss them. But this sort of says it all...

Your weekly dose of funny.

Sarah's weekly attempt at being funny.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to handle tools. I happen to be one of those people.

Case-in-point: I attended a wilderness-ish girls' camp when I was a teenager (we had cabins and running water and electricity, sure, but it was still "roughing" it). One of the classes we took was on proper use and handling of axes and hatches. (See? That's pretty wilderness-y.) The intelligent adults teaching the class knew me well. Too well. My certification test went something like this... "If we were to give you an ax, how would you use it." Then I pantomimed the proper use of an ax. These people were smart. If anyone was going to die in hatchet class, it would have been me. I actually ended up with a pretty grotesque injury from the class on tying knots, but that's a story for another day.

So, we're all on the same page about the I-shouldn't-be-within-100-feet-of-sharp-objects thing, right? Good. Today's Friday Funny will consist of a picture and a caption that pretty much sums up the relationship I have with tools. From earlier this week:

I caught the saw, and the saw won.
Don't worry Mom--all my fingers are still attached. AND, I discovered my tetanus shots are up to date. Aren't you proud?!

I have an official cover for Friends and Foes! This will hit shelves January of 2012!

For those of you who have asked about Philip Jonquil, Crispin's friend from The Kiss of a Stranger, you'll be pleased to know this is his story. We finally find out why he acts the way he does, and Philip meets his match: a fiesty, independent lady who pushes him out of his comfort zone. I love this book!!

So, I'm on "I Need Friends Friday" hiatus. Have you noticed? Life is crazy. I'm tired. Things are busy. I'll be back with new INFF interviews in January. In the meantime, I'm introducing something new...

Sarah's weekly attempt at being funny.

So, I'm not a Trekkie. I love me some original Star Trek. My husband and I regularly sit down in the living room after the kids go to bed and watch an episode from the original series and call it an official date. I was not always so well-versed as I am now. Let me explain.

I had seen a few episodes of the original over the years, but I had a gripe with it. You see, I just could get passed how horrible an actor I felt Leonard Nemoy was. You see, the actor never showed any emotion. None. He was so serious all the time, so unemotive, so unexpressive. Didn't that drive everyone crazy, I often thought.

Those of you familiar with the series are now laughing at me and my ignorance. Everyone else is mostly confused.

Not until I was married for some time and happened to mention this hangup of mine to my husband did things become clear. After he got his laughter under control, my husband explained something rather crucial to me.

  1. Spock, the character portrayed by Leonard Nemoy, by definition never shows any emotion.
  2. Leonard Nemoy pulled off the no emotion thing exceptionally well. So well, in fact, I noticed it even in my complete idiotness (never caught on to that rather crucial part of his character).
  3. Considering 1 & 2, Leonard Nemoy is actually a pretty incredible actor.
So, lesson of the day... there isn't really one. Just an extra-special glimpse into my history.

Happy Friday!
