I do not wish to startle you lest your comfort zone’s wall starts crumbling. Today’s burning question is:

Do you ever find yourself amusing? And, if so, will you freely admit to it?

  1. All the time. Andy and I crack ourselves up. 🙂

  2. Of course! I am a highly entertaining spouse, companion and dinner guest. And teacher.

    • Glad to hear it, Snmaeder. You are welcome at my table any time.

      Being in a little bit of a rush this minute please do see my reply to Nick.

  3. But of course Ursula. I am famous for being a cartoon. And why should I not admit to being one? I would rather that people laughed at me than spat at me.

    • Being a little strapped for time, please do see my comment to Nick – his being the last (so far) on this thread proving … not quite sure what.

  5. I’m very amusing, as Jenny will testify. I have a compulsion to see the funny side of things alongside the seriousness. In my opinion, absolutely everything has a humorous angle, everything is ultimately ridiculous and nonsensical. But some people just can’t see it and insist on being resolutely po-faced.

    • God damn it, Nick. Apart from Scarlet (and possibly Jean) none of you got my question. Should have made it more transparent, easier to understand.

      I wasn’t asking whether you were amusing to OTHERS. I am sure you are. I asked whether you find YOURSELF amusing in the privacy of your own company, no one else around. Amusing to the point that you grin, smirk, lough out loud at point of, say, re-reading previous posts, comments you left somewhere else. Now, yesterday, years ago. Notes you left in absent minded moments. A thought popping into your mind. That sort of thing.

      I do. And enjoy it. Yet sometimes think it (in a Protestant type of way – not that I am religious) vaguely embarrassing too. Remember this has nothing to do with laughing AT myself but WITH myself. And, no doubt, a pinch of conceit thrown in too.

      • Actually I was was talking about myself as much as other people. Yes, I find myself very amusing. I’m constantly laughing at things I’ve thought or said or heard. And yes, I grin, smirk and laugh out loud. Which sometimes annoys Jenny to the point that she has to retreat to another room for some peace and quiet. I can’t contain my amusement for long without audibly expressing it.

  6. “and possibly Jean” How could there be any doubt? We’re all a bunch of nuts and might as well get our egos out of the way and enjoy it.

    • Okay, I was thinking in terms of laughing at myself, which I do quite often, but my mind is my favorite toy, and it amuses me no end.

  7. To quote Nick:

    “I have a compulsion to see the funny side of things alongside the seriousness. In my opinion, absolutely everything has a humorous angle, everything is ultimately ridiculous and nonsensical. But some people just can’t see it and insist on being resolutely po-faced.”

    This include me … and yes to the second part…… I recently heard from an expupil about another pupil who literally wet herself because I was so funny…… and what made everyone else laugh was that I was blissfully unaware of all the facts of the situation….

  8. I have no idea whether I laugh with myself. I think maybe not.
    I do regularly laugh at myself and when I am in company I regularly laugh at my own jokes but thats not what you were asking

  9. I generally consider myself amusing though over the years I have been called a colossal smart ass. Now I am big enough to be colossal whatever I embrace but I try to not be mean spirited and I can honestly say I can take it as well as dish it out.

  10. I sometimes find my drawings truly amusing, if I leave them for awhile and come back to them.
