I'M A NUTTER...

... Emma says so. And to prove it, she's given me an award - thanks mate!

She's probably right. I do have a very warped view of life. But then I think you have to. As my tag line says - "Blessed be the cracked, for it is they who let in the light". Quite right too!! I will always remember being bodily removed from a VW garage in Germany when a man came in and said "Tag", which is short for "Guten Tag", as in "good morning", but I couldn't help myself and replied "Ha! You're it!!" and then collapsed in giggles. O/h wasn't impressed. Which made me worse.

Don't you think, though, that there is so much stuff in life and the world that is very hard and sad and unfair that if you didn't laugh, you'd be locked up? I do. But it gets me into trouble sometimes. For example, in a meeting with a very important client and we were discussing putting some new stuff on his server in three folders. One called "IN", one called "OUT" and I fell about laughing and begged them to call the third one "Shake it all about", but it went down like a rat sandwich!!

Take Dad's funeral. Up there with a slipped disc in terms of pain and suffering. We were having "All things bright and.." as one of the hymns. It can be a real dirge so we'd asked the organist to play it at quite a pace. He took off like William Tell and Mum and I were in hysterics as the congregation sat gasping for breath!! Dad would have laughed.

So I suppose what I'm trying to say is that NUTTERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!! PEOPLE NEED NUTTERS!! I'm proud to be one.

Who's with me?

Count me in. I'm glad it's not just me that gets in to trouble with a 'warped' sense of humour. Life is definately much too short to take seriously !!!!
