Tilly’s Blog Jubilee: Day Two

29 Jun

One of the reasons I love blogging is that it allows me to indulge my silly side.  Here are four posts from 2010; you get four because I couldn’t choose between them.

The Son’s Love post wasn’t, technically, my silliness; but I include it to show that it won’t die with me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m not American but I reckon that if we can import Trick or Treat and McCardboards, it wouldn’t hurt to say what we’re thankful for on one day a year, like our friends across the pond.

Here’s my list:

1) My boys.

 

2) My loving husband.

3) Indoor plumbing (for obvious reasons)

4) Modern dentistry, otherwise I’d look like this:

5) Maltesers (Number 4 refers)

A Joke For You

A friend of mine posted this joke on Facebook and he said I could share it with you. Be warned: it’s not to everyone’s taste; the Hub for one is going to read it and go ‘Huh?’ He doesn’t see the funny side of puns and nonsense and jokes that subvert expectations, but it had me laughing for an hour after I read it:

Last night I had a dream that I was eating a giant marshmallow. When I woke up this morning, there was a man stood at the side of my bed predicting the punchline.

Never Misunderestimate A Son’s Love For His Mother

Tory Boy to me on the phone the other day:

Dr Who was right: some points in time are fixed. You are going to be one of those crazy cat ladies some day, aren’t you?

 

A proud moment and yet I’m dressed like a weird movie villain.

I’ve just watched The Time Traveler’s Wife.

    Love it when you post your family pictures. Is the one needing orthodontia the seldom seen cousin you keep locked up in the closet?

    Great, but you have spoilt my day with one of them. I do puns and I do nonsense and subversion – but I simply don’t get that marshmallow one! *slinks off shamefacedly*

  9. Weird. Everywhere I look is weird. Choose one? I’d rather not. Do like your sons, however.

    Fun post, Tilly, love the teeth.
    However, I’m lost on the marshmallow thing. Lost to the point where my mind hurts, but that doesn’t really say anything…

    • Here’s what I told Col: The punchline of the joke is so predictable – I found I had eaten my pillow in my sleep – that the humour comes from not telling it.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
