Peppier. Hee! Great word.

Maybe it's the encroaching virus that will not manifest, or maybe it's just work fatigue or stress (or the damn news of party politics escalating into armed hate-war, Jesus H Christ), but the old energy ain't what I'd like it to be for a Friday.

So, what's lovely in the world? What has cheered you up lately? Tell me something good. Show me a pretty picture. Or link me to a joke. I really need a pepper-upper.

Fridays should feel better than this.

Potentially funny :)
I dressed up as Orville Redenbacher one year for Halloween - my mom just sent me the photo :)

Re: Potentially funny :)
Okay, that? Was an AWESOME Hallowe'en costume, and you have made me laugh!

Thank you, sir.

Musician jokes!

What's the difference between a bull and a symphony orchestra? The bull has the horns in the front and the asshole in the back...

How can you tell it's a singer at the door?
S/he can't find the key and doesn't know when to come in.

And, Shakespearean adaptation of a musician joke:

What's the difference between a viola and a dead skunk in the middle of the road?
rosalind!

And more, of the bluegrass variety:

What do you say to a banjo player dressed in a suit?
"Will the defendant please rise."

What's the difference between a banjo and a chainsaw?
The chainsaw actually has some dynamic range.

And an allegedly true story about Bill Monroe. He and the Bluegrass Boys played in New York City, and as they were all getting on the tour bus to leave, Monroe announced, "Boys, I just had the awfullest donut I ever ate. It was all hard and chewy and tasted of onion."

Hah! Bluegrass jokes, a subcategory of musician jokes that I did not know about. Excellent!

Also, your Misha icon is a laugh in itself. So thank you!

Thank you! As a singer (once upon a time) I can appreciate the singer joke: NOT because we were off key or inaccurate, but because singers are not considered musicians by other musicians, so I know why other musicians think that joke is funny.

Also? You missed soprano jokes. They were like blonde jokes, only with a far more limited audience.

Anyway, thank you for the giggles!

My ass is continually dragging, so I know how you feel. I napped instead of wrote this am. (Lack of coffee did not help.)

My favorite 2 things I've seen lately are the links I posted to Shidara and the postal workers song, but I know you've seen them. Have you seen Misha's weird, dark little vid he made?

"Stranger Danger"? Oh my, yes. It was weird and dark and very funny. Misha's mind is from another sphere altogether.

I missed your links to Shidara, I think. I'll go check.

I'm getting a little tired of this draggy feeling. My mind wants to write, but my body seems to want to sleep. Ho hum...

Eep, I hope you're not coming down with what I've got. If so...pencil out the next two weeks on your calendar because great goddamn.

Here, have a vid of the Oyster Wave they did at OCI awhile back. This is all the instructors, staff, and several students. You'll see S in there twice.

And in case I've already linked you that before or it doesn't up your pep, here's a bonus vid of other people with plenty of pep for everyone:

Whoa! Thank you! The OCI one was wonderful--so much oyster choreography has never been seen!

And the Cirque du Soleil one was nothing short of mind-boggling. I've never been to one of their shows, and really, I think seeing it filmed like that, with the close-in camera angles and the instant replays of a couple of the more astonishing moves, is probably better in a lot of ways.

Thank you for the pick-me-up. Very effective!

I think it's shiny that the green of seedlings are just strting to peep through the soil in my garden; I'll have a first harvest in no time.

I also find this pretty freaking shiny.

As for a joke, I just heard this one: Cerberus walks into a bar. Thud thud thud!

Ha ha ha! Cerberus. Bar. Ha ha ha!

And Alan Rickman can read me anything, any time, and I love his voice so much that I have an icon of it and everything.

And as to seedlings: yes! I had a dream of spring last night, buds and blossoms on an apricot tree that others were saying was dead. Very (very very) symbolic I am sure.

Thank you!
