Humour is an important part of our everyday life. Many of us have read that a few of the benefits of humour are reduced stress, lower blood pressure and some relief of pain.
Humour is one of life’s necessities.
Today, for your helpful dose of humour, I bring you a TED talk by writer and comedian James Veitch. I had originally read a version of his talk sent to me as a joke in an email. It involved someone responding to one of their spam emails. I read it and laughed and moved on because I thought it was a funny joke but only a joke someone had made up.
It turns out it was more than an joke. He did a blog and a book about the different spam emails he received and responded to. You can read a few of the exchanges in articles from TimeOut London and The Daily Mail if you’d like a taste of what you’ll be hearing in the TED video.

Do you get the feeling that Cupid hasn’t been putting much of an effort into things for you?

Perhaps, years ago, some little hussy stole the boy of your dreams from right under your nose.

All I’m saying is that, for various reasons, Valentine’s Day may not be at the top of the list of your favourite, over-commercialized holidays.

But, fear not, for the real Valentine’s holiday will soon be here.

So, for the people who don’t like the hype, the expectations, the stresses and the expenses that is now a very commerce-driven holiday, these pictures are for you.
Happy Anti-Valentine’s Day!

It is rare that I write a poem. It happens, seriously, about five years or so. But, when I do, it’s because I get this mental itch that has to be scratched using pen and paper. These last couple of days, I needed to write a haiku. I wrote a few different ones and decided to share this one about Groundhog Day.

Groundhog Day is done.
Shadows seen and not seen. Meh.
Dart board works as well.
