30 Days of Truth: Day Two

Write about something you love about yourself.

Hmm. This one is easy today because I’m having a pretty good day. I’m not slathering myself in black eyeliner and staring at the wall, which AS WE ALL KNOW is always a possibility. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this one, and here’s the most honest thing I can say.

I love that I can make people laugh.

I know that the blog can get bogged down in gloom and doom, and seriously, you guys are SO supportive through the tough times, you have no idea how much it means to me, but honestly? I love, love, love when someone laughs at something I’ve said or done – when MEANING to be funny, that is, not when I fall down or I forget to wear pants or something, but I guess that too, in a way. I just love that I have the ability to make others smile.

There’s really no better compliment anyone could give me than “You make me laugh,” because it’s usually about something I have written, which is my passion, and man, if your passion can entertain others? Hot damn, that’s a great feeling. It also allows me, in my weird little messed-up brainpan, to ALLOW myself to be happy, because in my head, technically, the laughter is something I’m giving to others, not taking for myself, so the bad voices don’t tell me I”m being selfish. Hey, it’s my broken logic, just roll with it, okay?

A great day for me? Is sitting down and writing something, reading over it and saying “that’s gonna make people laugh”, or writing something that makes ME laugh as I write it. It can be anything, an email, a text, a blog entry, anything that gives someone a chuckle is the bee’s knees for me. People ask me how I can write recaps for terrible reality tv shows, how PAINFUL it must be, how it must SUCK GOAT ASS to do every week. NAY! Quite to the contrary, I love writing reality show recaps. Why? Because they make people laugh. I love that I can do that.

So if you haven’t read my stuff over at MamaPop lately, here are some links for your enjoyment. And if you have a bit of a guffaw at them, or anything I write, really – and yes, I know the cat blogs are cheating because I’m just reporting the funniness of others  – if you have that laugh? I DID that. And I love that about myself.

  1. I read your recaps and I love them. For me, it’s like you’re laughing at these people (even when you may secretly root for some of them), and that makes me feel okay for laughing at them, too.

    I never said I was a nice guy.

    Also, you endure the pain so I don’t have to. That definitely counts for something.

    Finally, because your recaps are so fucking entertaining, I presume them that the show is awful and prefer your take on it.

    So there.

  2. you make me laugh always… that is one of the things that drew me to you when we first met years ago… that and our love of boys in eyeliner and musicals

  3. Your Bachelor and Bachelorette recaps are pure genius. I barely need to watch the show anymore, because I know that your version is far better.

    That’s not to say that I DON’T want the show… but yanno.

  4. You made me crack up the very first time I read your blog…it was the words ‘ah mah gah’ that did it for me. I probably didn’t spell it how you did, but you have a great sense of humor and it definitely translates here. I’ve been hooked on your blog ever since. I think this 30 day exercise you’re doing here will go a long way for you. Good times or bad, we’re all here with you and for you.

  5. I always say that shared vocabulary is a sure sign of friendship, and I love that when I shared your blog with a dear friend, he found it just as fabulously funny as I did – and that now we “ahmahgah” to each other all day long, some days. It’s like getting hugs from you. 🙂

  6. It just suddenly occurs to me that you need to be very careful. It kind of seems to me like between the lines you seem to be sometimes happy. Is that allowed? Just warning you. It could become a habit. (I hope so.) And that could kill your creativity if you let it. Of course you could fake the whole thing- either the creativity or the happy. (My suggestion: do the happy for real and fake the creativity.) Of course if you do it well, no one will ever know which you are doing. I wait with baited breath (whatever that means) to see you try. Best.
