Humour – it’s always a lovely thing

What would we do with out humour?  Without laughter?

My favourite people are the poeple who have a great sense of humour about life and about themselves, they don’t take themselves seriously.

I don’t take myself seriously.  I amuse myself frankly.  I’m an earth loving, hippy love spouting, techno-geek, book snob, introverted, quantum activist.  That’s a belly full of laughs.

But I especially like book humour so here’s some fun things to go through.

May your day be filled with humour, may you laugh easily and mostly at yourself.

An introvert’s guide for people who want to make guides for introverts

I’ve read all the ‘survival guides’ written for the introverted personality.  The holiday survival guides, the info-graphic guides, the business guides – and I’ve noticed a theme.  They all tend to portray introverts either as fragile beings, snobs or aliens from another planet.  While I understand these so-called guides are created in fun and with good intentions, I can’t help but feel they still subtly support the stereotypes surrounding introverts.  I can’t also help but feel that they are serving to create yet another divide between people, and I, as a proud introvert, just don’t roll that way.  We all are just people after all.

So, I decided to do the only logical thing at this point – make my own.
