That's Funny!

This month I'm participating in the Give Thanks Challenge, hosted by Abby at Back at Square Zero.  And though I didn't post yesterday, I swear that I was thankful.  I was also really, really tired.  Was it all the election hullabaloo?  Probably  not.  Whatever it was, I was zapped and just zonked out right after dinner.  When I awoke this morning, I was thankful that:

The Election was over!

And now back to our regularly scheduled lives...

Speaking of television (because we were - did you not know that?), I must say that I am thankful for a few tv shows that make me laugh, and sometimes cry, and generally help me keep my sanity.  Though I don't have time to watch these shows regularly (and therefore, tend to binge watch into the wee hours every few months), I'm a fan of Parks & Recreation, Modern Family, The Office, Parenthood, and Suits.  I've also enjoyed a few episodes of the Mindy Project.

But tonight I tried something different - a Hulu exclusive series called Spy.  Have you seen it?  Its absolutely ridiculous.  So not funny that its hilarious.  I couldn't stop laughing.  Something must be wrong with me.  

So what am I thankful for?  Today I'm thankful for idiots comedy.  With the cold setting in and darkness descending before I even leave work, its easy to feel a little down and out these days.  As they say, laughter is the best medicine, and I thankful for silly humor that gets my giggling.

And then of course, there's this gem.  I still watch this with a silly grin on my face (and DJ Research can't understand why :)

I can't believe I'm running a marathon in 3 days!  No, really, I can't believe it.  I completely forgot about it until tonight.  Have to pack!

What makes you laugh?

Do you have any favorite tv shows?
