Funny Friday Photos: Have You Been Indoctorinated?

It's true. We've made it through another week!

I've been toying with the idea of a Mindful Monday blog post for a while, and have decided to go ahead and give it a try. Because time is always an issue anymore, I'll only post twice a month, unless I have a guest post, like I will on February 2nd. I'm excited to get to share my blog with my friend, Roland Yeamons, who is releasing his book Return of the Last Shaman February 1st, and is going to share some connections between his book, his culture and mindfulness with us.

Thank you to Suzi, Veronica and Lexa for your continued support and comments on Fridays! You are all awesome!

Here's this week's photos!

Or you wake up after a nightmare...

I've always had this mental picture in my head when I hear people refer to women as "cougars."

I've succeeded in hooking my nephew and my kids. And probably my husband, too.

Earlier in the week I had an icky nightmare about aliens. I woke up freaked out, (if you remember, I have a phobia about the Communion-type aliens) but when I finally calmed down enough to fall back asleep, guess who came to help.

The tenth Doctor and Donna Noble.

It's humorous to me how comforted I was in the dream, because I knew the aliens weren't going to get me. The Doctor was going to save the day!

I think I have to accept I am, indeed, a Whovian.

Here's our puns!

My favorite this week is the sneezed on dog. The caption just fits.

Which is your favorite?
Just curious, have you ever had connected dreams before?

I'll see you on Monday!


  1. Some dogs just don't look good wet. :) I like the scared dog. He's cute. :)

    I've had connected dreams before. Not very often. And I can't think of an example, but I know it's happened. It's very rare where I've had a dream where I wake up and can't get back to sleep cause of being freaked out. That's not fun, so I'm glad it doesn't happen often.

    Hope you have a good weekend and no more bad dreams.

    1. I've not had an alien dream in quite a while. They're usually my signal that I am feeling stressed about many things.

      Boy 1 took over the nightmares for me. He's been up all week long around 3am, which means I have been, too. :P

  2. Oh my gosh this week's photos are so funny I have trouble picking just one. That wet dog is really the epitome of misery, isn't he? But that no coffee cat is fantastic. Then there are the two huskys, and they always steal my heart. My malamutes used to get under our glass kitchen table and look up at us too. Oh the nose prints and tongue messes!!! I miss those two to pieces. I have to say that pinterest sent me 10 pins which were supposed to be funny, but they were just stupid in that "let's put someone down" way. I hate that. So lovely to come over to visit you and see charming, funny photos on Fridays.

    Oh dreams. Aliens don't freak me out as a rule, but dreams where something happens to one of my children and I have to save him or her...that's another story. I've woken up screaming trying to save Jonathan from an earthquake and falling buildings in Mexico city of all the places, and this was just after he refused to come home from Japan in March 2011. (I know he's 34 and good at it, but that is besides the point) So my freaky-out nightmares seem to be reality based and closer to home. Hope you have a lovely nightmare free week.
    PS, we're hopeless Whovians over here too, although we must admit that we're not enjoying the Peter Capaldi Dr as much as we thought we would. Maybe it's the stories. :D

    1. I'm warming up to Peter Capaldi's Doctor. I see hints of possible character development that I'm willing to wait for. But, yes, it's taken some getting used to!

      I had nightmares about my kids when they were babies. One I dreamed Boy 2 drowned in the bathtub and it was so real when I pulled him out of the tub when I woke up my heart was just sick. And I think you are a perfectly normal mother. It doesn't matter how old they are or how safe they might be, I think we mothers were made to worry.

      I'm glad you like my picks. I don't like the "make fun of others" humor that is so prevalent today, either. I think that's why it's so hard sometimes to find good photos. A lot of today's humor is either vulgar or mean. :(

  3. Guess I'll go with Depresso, since it seems to fit so many of our writer friends.

    1. My dog often gets her lip caught on her teeth, but I didn't know cats do, too. And it's expression is priceless. :)

  4. I think I like the poor dog being blocked by the glass door: it is much like many of us authors, struggling to get sales and looking at mega-stars getting so many!!

    I remember watching THE RING at home when I had an efficiency apartment (which is basically one big bedroom) and going to sleep with the screen of the TV still glowing in the night as old TV's do. I guess it implanted in my subconscious because I dreamed of that frightening, eerie frog-girl flopping out of the screen and crawling across the carpet to my bed. Gypsy, my cat, was curled up by my side. In the dream, Gypsy sat up straight, turned to me, and said (Hey, this is a dream) -- "I don't know about you, but this is scaring the p--ss out of me!" I woke up laughing. My cat saved the day, ah, night.

    Thank you so much for allowing me to guest post on your Mindful Monday post come the 2nd. I hope to do you proud.

    Friday was a grueling 400 mile day, bring rare blood to rural hospitals in cold, blinding rain. I dragged in at 10 P.M. which is why I am so late visiting -- and I am on first call all weekend! Whew!!

    Have a healing weekend, Roland

    1. Aw, Dude! I hope your weekend went well and you weren't called out too often.

      I love your dream! I hated that girl, and can only imagine how scared I would have been if I had a dream like yours. Good Gypsy! That's hilarious!

  5. Oddly enough, I think I have to go with the needlepoint/acupuncture one. I feel sorry for the customer who walks into the wrong establishment by mistake ;)

    1. Mike!!! How happy I am you stopped by to visit! School must be keeping you very busy. I hope you're getting some writing in every now and then!

      I think that's exactly why I included the needlepoint/acupuncture photo. The possibility for confusion is comical!

    2. Yeah, I'm just starting my first semester at a university after graduating from community college, which seems to require an adjustment period and has been keeping me very busy. I'm poking at some writing when I can, and I'm trying to be better about visiting blogs and stuff :)

  6. Sorry I'm so late - I've been trying desperately to finish a chapter, but it just keeps going. Why do you think you can do X,Y, and Z in 200 words, but it takes 4000??? My vote is for the husky under the table. Runner up: scaredy dog.

    1. I don't know why we underestimate how many words it takes to write any given scene/chapter, but I do it, too. I'll be like "Okay, about an hour--maybe 500 words and I'll be done. And then something happens and I'm still not done two weeks and a thousand words later! Is this the sequel to Soul Cutter you're working on? I can't wait to read it!


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