20 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

A friend emailed me this gem and I just had to share it. Especially since it very much ties in with my blog "theme". There was no author, so I don't know who to credit. Thank you unknown author!!

I've also shared my "alter ego" sketch that was done on my trip. I'm really bored with my profile thumbnail and I can't deal with the agony of another self-portrait. I avoid looking at myself as much as possible! This sketch captures my mood at the moment. Wait till I show Laurene, my hair stylist, my new hair color. :)

1. At Lunch Time, Sit In Your Parked Car With Sunglasses on and Point a Hair Dryer At Passing Cars. See If They Slow Down.

2. Page Yourself Over The Intercom. Don't Disguise Your Voice.

3. Every Time Someone Asks You To Do Something, Ask If They Want Fries with That.

4. Put Your Garbage Can On Your Desk And Label It "In."

5. Put Decaf In The Coffee Maker For 3 Weeks. Once Everyone has Gotten Over Their Caffeine Addictions, Switch to Espresso.

6. In The Memo Field Of All Your Checks, Write "For Smuggling Diamonds"

7. Finish All Your sentences with "In Accordance With The Prophecy."

8. Don t use any punctuation

9. As Often As Possible, Skip Rather Than Walk.

10. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat with a serious face.

11. Specify That Your Drive-through Order Is "To Go."

12. Sing Along At The Opera

13. Go To A Poetry Recital And Ask Why The Poems Don't Rhyme

14. Put Mosquito Netting Around Your Work Area And Play tropical Sounds All Day.

15. Five Days In Advance, Tell Your Friends You Can't Attend Their Party Because You're Not In The Mood.

16. Have Your Co-workers Address You By Your Wrestling Name, Rock Bottom.

17. When The Money Comes Out The ATM, Scream "I Won!, I Won!"

18. When Leaving The Zoo, Start Running Towards The Parking lot, Yelling "Run For Your Lives, They're Loose!!"

19. Tell Your Children Over Dinner. "Due To The Economy, We Are Going To Have To Let One Of You Go."

20. And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity.......Send This E-mail To Someone To Make Them Smile.

I've seen this before via email, and it always makes me smile. I've just replaced my in box with the trash can. Now I'm going to page myself over the intercom.

Geez...those are a riot. I'm going to have to pass them along, for sure! They do go perfectly with your ater-ego self-portrait, although I suspect it might just be the real you showing herself in public. Thanks for the laughs in the middle of an annoying, stressful day! I appreciate it tremendously:>
