Seal of approval

Everyone needs a regular dosis of silliness

I was grumpy and tired yesterday, convinced that this was just not going to be my week. When I'm tired, my sense of humour sometimes goes on a field trip without me, along with my sense of adventure. I never quite know how to shake moods like that.

But Paco knows. All you need is fun; simple, ridiculous good fun. Last night Paco showed us a movie that just blasted my grumpiness away: You don't mess with the Zohan!

I'm picky when it comes to comedy, there are large numbers of people who call themselves comedians, and who can hardly get me to smile. I recognise that shows like The Guild are well-made, but it just doesn't tickle me. And I was never a big fan of Adam Sandler either. This movie however, is just amazingly funny and well-made. I loved it from the beginning to the end. Thanks Paco. (Though Paco always knows the best movies)

So, my advice to you, if you're feeling a bit low, tired or lazy: insert some silly fun in your life. Games are fun, but nerds like us have a knack for being really serious about games. So by silliness I don't mean just play WoW, I mean host a naked marathon from Kaskala to Westguard Keep. I don't mean play Arkham Horror, I mean play an Arkham Horror drinking game, like everyone drinks whenever a new environment is played.

Small silly things will do too. Stop at a rain puddle and see how far you can make the water splatter away. Slide down the bannisters of the stairs at work. You kow what I mean.

ETA: something definitely silly:

So tell me about something silly that you did today.
