Life is Funny - Things that make me go hmmm...


How's your life? Is it funny? And if it is funny, is it funny "ha-ha" or funny "strange"? Either way, how about sharing it with us? We could use a good laugh. Sign up below!

I've been noticing things lately that just seem to defy explanation. I know! How weird is it that there's oddness around me? Anyway, I thought I'd share a few with you because yeah, I'm a giver.

Yesterday on the Stuff Christians Like blog there was the following video. Wow. Just wow.

Who buys this stuff? I mean, really. There must be someone out there buying it. But wait, it comes with wooden roses? Well why didn't you say so in the first place?! Where's my phone...?

Not long ago my husband went to the pistol range for some target practice.


When he came home, he showed me his paper target. I noticed that at the bottom of the paper, in tiny letters, was a warning to make sure of the target you're shooting at before you shoot. Okay, is it just me, or does this seem like something that should be in big, red letters that are not 100 feet away? And if you could read those tiny letters at that distance, don't you think you'd also be pretty sure what you're shooting at? Huh eagle eye?

I was out in my garage last week and happened to look over at an area where my husband keeps our emergency stuff (Hey, are you prepared for 3 days?). Then what caught my eye on the shelf?


So, clearly, we are prepared for power outages, floods, earthquakes and zombie attacks. You never know when you'll be attacked by the undead, you know.

Okay, one last thing. As some of you may know, I live in the Pacific Northwest, home of flannel, pine trees and...


...bicycles flying over your head. These signs just popped up around a new trail that went in. The old trails don't have this sign, so apparently you're safe there. But if you dare to take the new trail, just know that there are bicycles over your head. I don't see a picture of a basket carrying E.T. in the picture, so as of now, I still don't know what's making these bikes fly. Hey, does that picture of that pedestrian look like he's walking faster than normal?

So there's a little glimpse into my world and the things that make even me wonder. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go make myself a tinfoil hat and rock back and forth in the corner trying to find a happy place.

The mysteries of life. Some things we'll never know this side of heaven...just keep a list of questions handy for when you meet your maker. :)

That Zombie Handbaook looks a little thick to be going through when the undead are at the door.

I hope he has a simple ZSP (Zombie Survival Plan) printed up somewhere, so you can all find it when the undead hit the fan.

I'm just saying; who doesn't have a ZSP?

GREAT. Now I'm gonna have nightmares about being throttled by giant disembodied Mickey Mouse arms.

So THANKS for that.

You crack me up! Love the zombie book and that last sign had me falling out of my chair!

Just where do you find this stuff anyway. It was funny before I saw your caption and saw the sign, I was thinking that very same thing.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I got a *very* interesting (spam) comment left for me. Oh, there will be a post about it soon. Feel free to put on your tin foil hat while you wait for it.

It may take more than a tinfoil hat to protect you from those flying bikes over your head, not to mention the brain-eating zombies. Get a helmet.

Oh yeah! Mine is on my way! Thank you so much for posting that! I think you said it best - WOW, just WOW!
