Funny Friday Photos: Where's Your Happy?

Happy Friday!

My lovely online friend and fellow writer, Lexa Cain (she wrote the awesome YA book Soul Cutter - you should read it - very, very good), tagged me for a fun Facebook meme called Eight Terrible Titles, created by D.L. Hammons. The way it works is you scroll the cursor through your manuscript, stop randomly on any page, and select the phrase your cursor landed on - and soon you have eight terrible titles. Instead of keeping it all on Facebook, I thought I'd share over here, too.

Eight Terrible Titles by Lara Schiffbauer

1. Keep Ten Paces Behind
2. Any Other Way
3. Be a Dragon
4. Like a Dirty Diaper
5. Time to Find Another Portal
6. Through the Fairy Ring
7. Braided Bun and Periwinkle Daisies
8. An Audible Wave of Energy

I actually kind of like "Through the Fairy Ring." Not at all original though.

There was actually a consensus last week on which photo was the week's favorite. It was:

Are you ready for this week's photos? All right then! Let's go!

Absolutely the way I feel when I drink two cups of coffee and don't eat.

Sounds better than sea urchins. Looks better, too!

I don't think cats approve of anything humans do.

Leo the Lop? Is that you?

Too bad they don't have any glue... Oh. Wait.

The phrase "tear away pants" always reminds me to watch the Full Monty. I love that movie!

To start getting us in the Holiday spirit:

My favorite this week is the dog with a happy in its teeth. Just too cute of an expression.

I'm excited for this weekend because I'm finally going to get to see The Guardians of the Galaxy! I bought it back on Tuesday and I've been looking at it longingly all week. Okay, I'm laying it on a little thick, but I am excited to watch it. And cry.

You know what movies are as bad as Disney movies as far as making you cry? Pokemon! I've watched two this week with my sons and each one had the tears rolling. Self-sacrifice and grief and loss themes do that to me, though.

Anyway! Did you like any particular photo this week? What are your weekend plans? Have you already seen Guardians of the Galaxy?

Have a great weekend!


  1. You have such an interesting blog. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading your posts. All the best for your future blogging journey.

  2. I'm going with the intravenous coffee cat, but I sure do feel horrible for that bunny!! lol

  3. Like Diane, I love the flying bunny. :-) But I have to vote for the bulb-testing kitty.

    I've downloaded GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and watch snippets of it on my breaks (few though they are) at work. Rocket and Groot are my favorites. It harkens back to the fun and wonder of the first STAR WARS. Thanks for the twitter.

  4. Hey, number six would make a great title. :D

    And I'm liking the Dumbo bunny. What a face. :P

  5. This week is especially funny. The bunny was the cutest but the smiling dog made me laugh the most.

  6. I loved these, especially the bunny! That thing must be a mutant alien!! lol

  7. Like a dirty diaper made me chuckle. Glad I'm out of that stage. :) (And when I say I, I mean the kids, not me. :)

  8. Oh my gosh! My blog just ate my comment again! What the heck is up with that. I'm frustrated with Blogger eating everyone's comments. It's a rampant bug and they really need to fix it.

    I just wanted to say "Thanks!" to everyone for commenting! I put the winner on the new post!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Please leave your comments below.
