    Two atoms are walking down the street one day and one says, "Hold up! I just lost an electron!" And the other says, "Are you sure?" And the first says, "Yup. I'm positive."

    Get it? Lost an electron, so now he's positive. Bwahaha! :)

  19. The dots are called umlauts, for future reference :)

    My family is German, so that top fabric is just so darned cute to me!

    Amusing life story from me: I have a notoriously bad memory, except when it has to do with food. So if you ask me what I did the summer I was 7, I might not be able to tell you anything except how many times we went to the Chinese buffet. If you can remind me of a time involving food [like the time my aunt fed me pimento load EW] and I can tell you everything that happened that day. My family thinks it's hilarious. It's even more amusing when you consider the fact that I'm 5'2, 115 lbs, so not the person you'd expect to be so struck by food haha.

  42. My favourite quote is also my motto (and I have it tattoed) 'mischievous and gleeful, like an elf' - always makes me smile!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Something that makes me laugh every time... I am a teacher for students with hearing loss (this is important to know)... and there is an assessment test that I sometimes give that asks (among other things) for students to give more than one meaning for the word agree by using it differently in two different sentences. More often than not, the first sentence that they give is, "I degree with you" It's kinda like when we all sing the wrong lyrics for music.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Being a German teacher, I really need that German fabric! Too cute!
    Hmmm...so many jokes, which one to choose. OK, my son's favorite: Why is 6 afraid of 7?
    Because 7 8 9. Hehe!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I can't think of any jokes, so I'll tell you an embarrassing moment instead. I once accidentally ran a car off the road while I was getting pulled over. The car had to go up on the curb so I didn't run into it. I was so embarrassed when the cop came to my window, but I didn't get a ticket :)

  47. Oh man!! I love that first fabric. One of my favorite quotes is from Jane Austen:

    Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously.... Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.

    ReplyDelete
  48. “People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

    brought out the best for ya since you are bringin' Kokka!!! heheh Thanks!

  51. I was forced to sign this for my best friend,
    and now I pass it on to you. Be for warned...
    I too am making my friends sign it... there are
    things in this world that are not understood or
    cared for by direct family and take gentle hands
    to handle and care for.
    Remember me fondly if I too pass with out
    finishing my WIPS. Finish them for me...

    Last Will and Testament:


    Being of sound mind and body (a statement that does not bear close scrutiny) I ______________
    do hereby record my last will and testament.
    Knowing that __________, my ____________________ (husband, sister, daughter) has no
    appreciation, or for that matter knowledge of my extensive fabric collection, which by the way is
    deposited in various places throughout my house for safekeeping. Knowing also that _________
    has also notified the goodwill store should I precede him or her to that great quilt shop in the sky,
    to pick up and dispose of the aforementioned collection. Therefore I do WILL this collection
    and all other collections related to it, to my dear fellow fabric preservationist ______________.
    It is my wish that she, upon hearing of my death and obtaining clear proof of that I did not
    manage (although goodness knows I tried) to take it with me, will come to my home, before the
    goodwill store searches out my collection. That she should rescue the said collection and stack it
    in my quilting studio, along with my sewing machines, frames, old buttons, lace, patterns, quilts,
    dolls and works in progress. And after she has done that, she should purchase refreshments for
    all my friends, not yet departed, which friends are also her friends. Every last one shall be in that
    room and they shall hold a wake and say lots of lovely and kind things about me until they run
    out and then they shall divide amongst themselves my wonderful collection. Be forewarned! I
    shall be hovering over that very spot until this is done. They shall then leave this spot and close
    the door, leaving the car, house, stocks, bonds and other worldly nonsense to those who don't
    understand or know any better.
    This is my wish on the matter.
    Signed: _____________________
    Date: ______________________

  54. Oh thank you for the chance! I ADORE the fabric with the little children! It reminds me of "It's A Small World" at Disneyland, which is my little one's favorite ride. Every time we go, we have to go on this ride many, many times. Do you know how crazy that song can make a person? But I still love it and I love that it makes her happy.

  62. Oh crikey, I'm not feeling terribly funny right now and I have a memory like a sieve. How about I share an idea instead? I recently borrowed the idea of starting a journal of moments to be grateful for. I've set myself the goal of continuing until I reach 1000. It's one of the best things I've done in a while - it really helps you to see the beauty in each day!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Quote: My mother had this written on a piece of note paper in her sewing things which I found after her death, "Use the talents you possess, for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang but the best." It was as if she were encouraging me to take her sewing things and begin to create for myself and my grandchildren.

  70. My most favorite joke:

    Russian, Italian and French are asked to make a sentence using English words "green", "pink" and "yellow".
    The Russian says: I wake up in the morning and I see green grass, pink flowers and yellow sun.
    The Italian says: I wake up in the morning and I put on green trousers, pink shirt and yellow shoes.
    The French says: I wake up in the morning and the phone goes green, green. So I pink up the phone and I say yellow!

    :o)

    No offense, my husband is French and I just love making fun of him although he speaks English very well :o))

  78. I love this quote about the midwest from American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld:
    "Admittedly, the area possesses a dowdiness I personally have always found comforting, but to think of Wisconsin specifically or the Midwest as a whole as anything other than beautiful is to ignore the extraordinary power of the land. The lushness of the grass and trees in August, the roll of the hills (far less of the Midwest is flat than outsiders seem to imagine), that rich smell of soil, the evening sunlight over a field of wheat, or the crickets chirping at dusk on a residential street: All of it, it has always made me feel at peace. There is room to breathe, there is a realness of place. The seasons are extreme, but they pass and return, pass and return, and the world seems far steadier than it does from the vantage point of a coastal city...But the Midwest: It is quietly lovely, not preening with the need to have its attributes remarked on. It is the place I am calmest and most myself."

    ReplyDelete
  79. I love the first fabric!
    Life is a constant churn of hilarity here - I have a 3 1/2 yr old who is unintentionally funny.

    When he gets in a mood and is saying NO to everything, DD and I ask him if he can say "no". He then says "NO!" in a grumpy voice and the two of us laugh and laugh - and then he'll join in too (he's at that age where you laugh when other people laugh). It's a great way to lift the moods of us all!

  86. I can't remember jokes, but when my son was young, one december the teacher was talking about nutrition and what you should eat for breakfast. As an example, she asked if anyone eats chocolate for breakfast (a bad food choice). Of course my son puts his hand up to say he eats chocolate every morning, but doesn't bother to explain tbat it is a single piece from his Advent calender.

  95. My birthday is Saturday, and this would be a great birthday present!

    A great quote from Joan of Arc as she was dying at the stake: "Every man gives his life for what he believes, and every woman gives her life for what she believes. Some people believe in little or nothing, and yet they give their lives to that little or nothing. One life is all we have; we live it and its gone. But to live without belief is more terrible than dying, even more terrible than dying young."

  116. I got locked out my house and with 3 little kids and no money or keys, I walked to the fire station. They came to help me but couldn't get in. Finally they discovered I had left my tiny laundry room window unlocked...but it was so little they helped my little daughter through the opening and she unlocked the door! hehe
    Thanks

  117. Love the Kokka fabric! Especially the November Books. My husband gets a kick out of this brief klutzy moment. My mom and dad stopped by my house. When I got up to answer the door, I was so excited that I lost my footing and nose dived to the floor. No injuries... I quickly hopped back up and dashed to the door, just a little more slowly. He found it hilarious!

  123. One year at Christmas my dad got us all together to drive an hour to go see this awesome light display. When we got there it was only one house and well, it wasn't that awesome. We were all laughing so hard, it is one of our favorite memories to this day.

  129. For my Dad's last birthday (he turned 60) I decided to make him a tie. Unfortunately the pattern I decided to use was shorter than a normal tie, but I didn't even think about it until I had my husband try it on when it was almost done. He could get it to a normal length, however my Dad is taller and has a bit of a belly these days. It didn't even make it halfway down his torso! I was pretty embarrassed.

  137. Oh, I LOVE everyone of those fabrics!!! i have never seen the kitty matryoshkas before...so cute!

    The whole family recently watched Charlie Brown's Christmas and then rented the book from the library and read it. Then my 4 yo son started going around asking all the girls (first the neighbor girls and ultimately me), "Will you pleeeeeease be my peanut baboo?!" (It's supposed to be sweet baboo). He keeps us in stitches most of the time.

  146. Funny? Lots of things to laugh at in retrospect. :) Like that time my son ran down the side of the room where they keep the carts. It was a pretty tight squeeze between the wall and the carts even when your not pregnant and towing along an almost 2 year old and it was FULL of carts. I tried to follow, but he climbed up on the carts and made for the corner- waaaaaaaaay out of reach. As I stood there debating how I was going to get him a woman asked me if I needed help. I swallowed my pride and said "YES!" She said she had been the oldest of 7 children and had lots of experience catching small children. She then CLIMBED up onto the carts and dashed over to the corner scooped up my bewildered son and brought him to me. I was amazed. :0 (and thankful to her. And happy she hadn't gotten hurt on the carts!)

  165. OK funny....I work for a restaurant...family business and our offices (mine and my moms) are above the restaurant. No one ever comes up there but me, my mom and my aunt. So the other day I come out of the bathroom with my pants undone (still tucking shirt in) and talking away to what I thought was my mom to be faced by a complete stranger - a man!! I could have died!! He thought the door to our offices led to the restaurant. We both were highly embarrassed! Thanks for a great giveaway and enjoy your chuckle on my behalf.

  172. Fave Quote: "There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, and pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living." I read this on a blog and I love it. (I'm really getting a good laugh with the jokes. Especially love the european.

    My husband was listening to a German Techno group the other day, and they say the most ridiculous things in some of their songs. One line was, "It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice." I think that's very true, and a good principle to live by!

  175. When I was 9, my mom made 2 coconut cream pies for dessert for my grandparent's coming over for supper. They were cooling on the fridge when my grandparents arrived, and I was so excited that I took a pie in each have to show them what my mom made for dessert. Then..... they exploded on the floor (which was carpet), and we didn't have dessert. My bad. My mom didn't even get mad, how cool is that? My punishment was not getting any pie.

    The holiday season has left my house in shambles.. between changing over holiday decorations and pulling out loads of "to do" craft making supplies, it's a mess. I was frantically picking up this mess the other day when my daughter just stood there watching me perplexed, then leaned over to her brother and said, "somebody must be coming over."
