Last night I settled down to relax after a long day of working around the house and an even longer emotion- evoking, pre-election day, media coverage obsorbing obsession. My mind was stuck in veg mode. I’m not a big TV watcher. I usually justify the time in front of it by crocheting or hand-quilting while the one-eyed monster is roaring in the background, but last night the anti-climax of the the election found me without energy to do either. I sought escape through laughter. I’m totally not into smut TV, so sitcoms on the networks were out. I channel surfed endlessly until I happened upon Whatever, Martha. It took roughly seven minutes for those two to lose me. That show is so sick it will probably last for years. Isn’t that the winning formula for television success these days? Their lesbian humor and total disprespect for almost any subject they rambled onto was too much for me. I suppose the fact that Martha sanctions the humor and produces the show makes her much more enlightened than me. After a few trips around the for your viewing pleasure line-up I gave up and went to bed and began reading a delightful book written by Jim Nantz. That was the best move I could have made.
This morning while visiting a few of the blogs on my ever-growing Favorite Blogs To Visit list, I clicked on a link to another blog and then another and came upon this funny clip. It was the comic relief I needed. It’s silly enough to be funny and not so stupid to be a bore. My humor preference is the dry, far more sophisticated humor of the British, but we don’t pick up BBC America. ~ sigh ~ I’ve never seen the movie and likely never would make a conscious decision to sit and watch it, but I appreciated the clip. I must really need a levity break from reality. The clip is short, so if you’re in need of a spirit lightener, it may be just what you need, too.
Until next time…
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22
