The Week That Was

Not one remotely amusing or interesting thing occurred all week. Considering the year I’ve had, I am taking this as a good thing.

I have not had any Deep Thoughts either.

I have noticed my Deep Thought posts are the ones that receive the fewest comments. As in…none. Perhaps they are Deeper than I intend.

I will try to be more observant in the coming week. There must be something funny going on.

George Carlin once said (I'm paraphrasing) Funny stuff happens all the time. It's my job to point it out.
Channle your inner Carlin.

Excellent point Joe. And he is one of my comic idols.

New York City born and raised, Catholic school educated, he and I also had much in common.

I will be more observant this week!

Oh I see the connection. I was catholic school educated too. (In fact my father was the headmaster!)

Marie said...

Oh boy, that must have been tough! Did the other kids give you a hard time because of that? Did he hold you to a higher standard?!?

When I was in grammar school it was the 50's and 60's. Corporal punishment was an integral part of a Catholic school education. I was a really good kid and I still got beaten.

I ended up insane. lol No, that isn't what I was going to say, although it's not too far from the truth. I ended up going through 16 years of Catholic school: grammar school, high school and college.

Out of all my education, only nursing school and graduate school weren't at Catholic schools.

No wonder I am now an Anglican. lol

I was an angel for the first 11 years of my life. I didn't know any swear words etc etc.. and then my parents couldn't afford all the trimmings of a convent education so I went to a grotty, rough state comprehensive where it was sink or swim. The experience left me as I am today - where I discovered that being the class comedian was one way to prevent myself from being bullied. Educationally, I didn't perform as I should have done but fortunately I still managed to get university - mainly because of my excellent primary education.

I wouldn't change anything though. It was a lesson in life and more or less made the fruitcake I am today. I wonder how I might have turned out if I'd gone to the convent? And I don't think I'd have made a very good nun.(I'm inherently rebellious!)

When nothing exciting is happening, treat it as a blissful moment :)

Humour often conveys more than deep thoughts do.

Don't worry, Marie, you'll soon find something funny to write about. :)
