I Need A Laugh

Life has been particularly challenging the past few weeks and I need a laugh. So hit me with your recommendations: books, audiobooks, movies, TV shows, anything funny. And in return, my two recommendations to you are Scot Free by Catriona McPherson and the audio book of Highfire by Eoin Colfer, both of which made me laugh out loud in a most unladylike manner. And, for your viewing delight, here are photos of my grandchildren making faces at me.

  1. Love the grandkids picture! I got a kick out of the Prime series New Tricks. My kids didn’t like it, so I think you def have to be old enough for it. For a quick laugh, you might browse here: https://www.gocomics.com/

  2. Oh, I don’t know…I’ve been told my debut mystery novel (Secrets & Lies) has some laugh-out-loud moments. 😉 But for TV, Schitt’s Creek is hard to beat, with the father-and-son team of Eugene and Daniel Levy.

  3. My absolutely most favorite comics are by The Oatmeal, aka Matthew Inman. There’s something incredibly true and authentic about what he writes. Here’s one:

    During a particularly bleak day these past couple of weeks I came home and watched Will Ferrell’s Eurovision Song Contest movie. It was perfect. Funny as hell with great music and, ultimately, kindness.

    Hang in there.

  4. OMG what an amazing story on The Oatmeal. I had never heard that before.

    I need to check out that movie. On Father Ted, they did a couple of episodes on song contests and I thought they were making it up.
