silent library. laugh out loud funny.

So I was looking over my blog, or my "special place" as it's been dubbed (thank you Lena) & it's been really "down" of late. Which, yanno - death tends to do that to people, but today I'm posting back as my usual slightly crazy, addicted to all things lamb chops, sarcastic pants-wearer.

Last night I couldn't sleep. Which those of you who've followed me for a while are aware I suffer (and suffer is definitley the appropiate word. Not being able to sleep? I'd rather chew glass. Really.) from insomnia. Only my insomnia calls the shots. There are nights I'll get a long blissful nights sleep - usually when I have nothing but housework planned for the next day, and others where I'll have PTA, work, scout meetings and then some for my day - and won't catch a glimpse of the sandman. (If you are now humming 'Enter Sandman' in your head - you are sunglasses cool.) Anywaaaaay, when I can't sleep I'll try different rooms, different beds, (that sounds weird & unusual. We actually have a few spare beds) well last night I ended up in front of the second living rooms t.v on the couch. So of course I start watching t.v, and around 5am I find this absolute GEM of a show that I cannot believe I hadn't heard of before.

Naturally it was a trashy MTV show (yes. I've been known to catch a few of their fabulously bar-lowering shows) but this one had me laughing SO HARD I was crying. Literally crying. If you haven't heard of it, it's called "Silent Library" & it's an offshoot from a Japanese game show (don't they just have the weirdest game shows?) But it basically involves 6 friends, in a library they deal out cards and all choose one at the same time, the one who receives the skull card has to be 'punished'. And the punishments have to be endured in silence. Otherwise they lose the money prize. It reeks of frat boys, but I just fell in love. Perhaps it's my grief making me pathetic - but I don't even care. If something makes me laugh now-a-days, I'm on it like flies on ... well. You get the picture. Unfortunately I could only find one decent copy & the other one I posted is the original Japanese version. But if you can find recent episodes, Let.Me.Know!!

I can't believe I haven't stumbled on this comedy gold sooner. That's what happens when you monitor what your kids watch. Which so isn't MTV. Enjoy :D

MTV is always good for the early hours. I hope you get some decent sleep tonight.

Oh, heck, Joe ... I just get up and get on the computer and do "blogging", my way!! Since I don't know what I'm doing, it takes awhile! and then I go back to bed, an hour or so later, and drop off to sleep ... and then the phone rings!! what's with these patterns??:) I so enjoy your site ... it makes me smile! and yep, that MTV stuff will make you simple!:) but a laugh is just so fun, isn't it? do it often, my friend!

Pink Hugs,

I'm usually up most of the night myself...although if given the chance, I would no doubt sleep. My newest kidlet keeps me wide awake! I'll have to remember to try and catch that! There are definitely lots of "interesting" programs on in those early hours :O)

Take care,

What a crazy fun show! That sounds like something my sister and I used to do when we both went to a certain school here in Utah that starts with a B! We would get to laughing so hard in the library and trying to be quiet only ended up in snorts.
