Tell us about your favourite comedian.

 

well, i remember the first comedian i’d seen.  it was steven wright and i remember my parents just laughing and laughing, so i would linger in the back and eavesdrop.  that’s when i learned about deadpan.  🙂  i still remember the first joke i had heard him say — “I bought powdered water but didn’t know what to add to it.”  😛

Do you think it makes it okay to add “just kidding” after a surprising statement?

no i don’t think it’s okay.  it’s like you’re just saying that to lessen the harshness of the blow you just did, but you still thought it and you still said it.

Do you come out and admit it when you’re joking around, or do you leave people wondering?

Tell us your favourite joke.

okay had to go with prompts here because i don’t know what else to write.

i’m very bad with jokes.  i mean, i’ll laugh at them and all, but then promptly forget them.  if you ask me to repeat a joke i’ve heard, i cannot.  i try and try and think of it and i can’t.  it’s weird.

just the other day i was playing a sporcle game where you had to choose the punchlines.  although i was able to get 100% in the time allotted, if you asked me to repeat any of those jokes, i’d have no idea!  i’m that bad at it.

so i don’t know what my favorite joke is.  it’d have to be one that sticks with me, i guess!  i guess i don’t kid as much as others.

ponder

i’ve been in a glum mood lately.  i just feel so … mortal.  everything i hear or read reminds me of death, and then i start weeping uncontrollably.  it’s been a while since i’ve been feeling pains, but while certain doctors shrug it off, i feel it’s something deep in there.  then i noticed a change that when i looked up on google (which i really shouldn’t do, it scares me so) definitely points to what i fear.  i already know two people who are near my age that have been diagnosed, and 2 more that were younger than me that died.  i can’t help but worry that i’m next, and then all i can think about is what’s going to happen after–to my son, my family, my possessions.  how the world is just going to go on its merry path and all these new things would come out that i would have no idea about.  and then finally, i’m gone, like that, from everyone’s memories.  and … i just can’t stand it.  i long to be young again.  i long to be at an age where i didn’t have to think of things like this (though admittedly, i remember thinking these thoughts when i was 5-6).  i’ve hit mid-life crisis bad, no kidding.

back again

gotta redo some tests so it’s back in i go.  it’s gonna be alright, right?

ah, who am i kidding.
