Majestically Muddling

A: This is Majestic.

D: And the muddled?

A: Me, every day?

D: And you decided that it was worthy of a blog post.

A: Well, I could regale the good people with the details of my horrifically cold rummage sale over the weekend.

D: Please don’t.

A: Exactly my point. Lacking anything better, I thought I’d share some very funny DeviantArt cartoons I found, courtesy the OneRing.Net.

D: I’m sensing a theme with you.

A: Whatever do you mean?

D: You know what I mean. You have this sheepish grin on your face and you keep giggling. How old are you, woman?

A: Apparently not old enough for you, which in my book, is an okay thing.

D: In your book? What book? Have you written a book?

A: Bite me.

D: Ah, the eloquence.

A: (Eye roll) Look, I am continually charmed and wowed by The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, never mind the white-fleshed orc, unexpected hugging and made-up elven lasses. So is the creator of The Oakentoons. Did I mention that they’re funny? Because they are. Ridiculously so. Go. Read now.

D: Wow, is she bossy today or what? Been eating your Wheaties, A?

A: Um, gluten intolerant, so no. Do eggs, sausage and a protein shake count towards bossiness?

D: Probably better than Wheaties . . . anyway, in case you didn’t decide to run off and look at all 66 Oakentoons, you might want to stop by the Community Storyboard for the Prompt of the Week, Autumn.

A: I love autumn and all (no, really I do – love love love, and I can’t wait to write for the prompt), but I think you should run off and look at all 66 Oakentoons. Autumn can wait. Then again, you may be waiting for something more witty, in which case, wander on down to Andra’s series on taking the plunge and embracing change. It’s well worth the read.

D: Also well worth a read: book blogger extraordinaire, Ionia Martin – she who showcases all others – has been showcased herself, by author Bianca Sloane.

So my fine friends, even if you didn’t read all 66 Oakentoons (but really, you should), what give you a real giggle and smile – not necessarily a belly laugh, but a charmed, can’t-help-but-grin giggle?

  1. Boy, oh boy, this was one of the most hilarious bits to date! What give me the giggles is reruns of Everybody Loves Raymond. I have the whole DVD set I run through once a year, playing in the background when I’m doing stuff. And every once in a while I’ll stop and stare with a big grin on my face. It’s one of my favorite shows, guaranteed to always put me in a good mood!

    Loving your stuff, Katie!


    1. Thanks, Jack!

      I always enjoyed Everybody Loves Raymond! We do something similar with Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It’s not always a good-mood generator, but it is a good “lesson in what not to do” sometimes with the kid!


  2. Today? MTM gave me multiple giggles. It was a travel day, but he still makes me laugh.

    D is hilarious. I suspect he would’ve forced a few more sales of rummage with his presence. 🙂

    As always, thank you for the mention.


    1. Giggles from a dear one are the best giggles around!

      If D had been there, I think cars might have actually stopped, despite the cold and errands. And then he would have strong armed everyone into buying. At the tip of a sword if need-be. I could take some lessons from D!


      1. Hahaha! Those darn characters….such a pain! Billy has been begging me to write a sequel to his book. I’ve tried to explain how it is impossible, but he just doesn’t believe me! LOL!


      1. There was no progress made on anything this evening, unless decimating the Chinese takeout leftovers counts. Actually, I’m about to edit for a half hour, we’ll see if I can tear myself away from the computer! 🙂
