This is a post about humor but it's not funny. Go figure.

I've never considered myself a funny girl.  I'm more sarcastic than anything.  I'm pretty sure it's not the first thing anyone would say to describe me, "Oh that girl, she's funny."  I'm thinking not.  I have my moments, every now and then.  Then there are those people who are really truly funny, that bring out the funny in you, or is it that they know how to make fun of you in such a way that you just think you are funny.  Isn't humor all relative anyway?  You will find something to be hilarious, while another person won't get it. 
Half of the funny things people say are from movies, comedians, and tv shows anyway.  Is it that that person is hilarious or do they just have a really good memory?  They have the comedic timing, but are just using other's words.  Where did these comedians and writers get this stuff from but from some situation that happened or some other person that might have said something funny one day but didn't have the means to put it out there to an audience and see if it takes.  It's people who see the humor in anything.  Life is funny.  People are definitely funny. 

I've never been good at remembering lines or is it just that I don't rewatch the same movies or shows over and over again to remember them.  If I had a good memory, would I be funnier?  Maybe.

Whatever you do, please don't spend an entire evening quoting a movie start to finish, because that's just sad.  Do you not have anything of your own originality to say?  I know you think that movie is funny, but I'd rather be watching it than listen to you quote it.  A little bitter that I can't quote a whole movie even if I wanted to?  Maybe, but not really. 

I don't know what the point of this post is at all, except to share some of my random observations of late.  I'm not looking to be that funny girl either.  I think I'm kind of that average girl who is mediocre at a lot of things, but likes to travel.  Now that's a mouth full.

I think the irony is that I actually LOL'd at this! Because we are so the same. People think I am funny - but it's only ever when I've said something really sarcastic.

Thanks for your TV suggestion! I actually already own the IT Crowd. They are a bunch of idiots but it's great fun! I have to be in the right mood to tolerate that kind of funny though.

Hope you have a great week free of movie quotes xo
