A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Giving you a head's up before you start reading this.....there is a little bit of 'language' so if you don't like the use of a certain 3-letter 'a' word used in reference to what you sit on, don't read any further. 

Warning # prepared to laugh.  Seriously would suggest a trip to the bathroom before reading.

I found this posted on one of the knitting groups today and I have to admit I laughed til I cried.  It's simply too good not to share.

Today's quote is from Lewis Mumford.... "Humor is our way of defending ourselves from life's absurdities by thinking absurdly about them"

Oh, that is so funny and how so very true. I was in centrelink the other day trying to register for an online account so I no longer had to wait two hours to get through on the phone and I had the same experience. Wish I had read this first.
