Btw, I don't want to spoil the mood of the check ins, so I'll try to go last.

Paul M....I'm also sorta neutral.

BUT, I always wonder if my mathaphobia was a mental block.

Some of my rejected jokes mention snapping turtles, so they expect me to mention snapping turtles sometimes.
(some classmates:  what are those?  ::)

Of course, sometimes when I get to class:  "What was I thinking?".....LOL

We have a check in/out at our classes.

I'm going to say:
I have a bad stomach ache.  My medicine cabinet is next to my aquarium, btw.  I'm groggy when I wake up, so I accidentally swallowed a baby snapping turtle with a glass of water 'stead of a Cipralex..........uh oh!  Washroom!!!  I pretend I'm running to washroom.

Sometimes it's my dementia talking, not me....oh well....

I have some tricks to play on my weekly comedy class.

I'm thinking about them over and over and getting positive (?) anxious and upbeat.

I'm so upbeat that I'm talking to strangers/female strangers a lot more!  Which reminded me that this is a new habit I had, that I've been slacking off on lately - because I don't like where I live (I like the building, though).  My neighbourhood is a bit of a cloud over my head.

So now I'll continue, hopefully, to talk to strangers/female strangers at bus stops etc.

Thanks, guys.

Speaking of older, my oldest brother is 75!  Older is 74 in June, I guess.

I have two younger brothers also.

Good health genes, 'cept for ailments from the neck up!   :o


I'm 68 in June.

Soozan, I've never thought my chronological age is really me.

I'm still a kid....I have zillions of props and knickknacks, a lot of which I bring to classes/groups.

67 year olds aren't usually interested in buying blowguns.....LOL....

I was gonna buy one on the net from the U.S., but you can't import them into Canada, also other places.
I just wanted one for a laff......they even had a small apartment-sized one - I could off fruit flies with it....or try to.  ::)

Some new age-related and not jokes from class:

SET UP: I’m getting a piercing....unusual for my age I know....

PUNCH:   Now, I just have to choose which wrinkle to put it on.

SET UP: I’m turning 68 in June.

PUNCH:   Time to switch from Green Day to Doris Day!
(or "time to start saying:  "you call that stuff music?"

SET UP: I need something to make me relax.

PUNCH:   Something that isn’t addictive like benzos.
                I might start smoking weed again.  Is it still $15 an ounce?

(not approved by class/mates yet...if they like it)
SET UP:  I get my prescription meds from Big Pharma – the pharmacy in the Manulife Centre.

PUNCH:   I get my (blush) other medications from Small Pharma –
Skinny Pete, who stands on street corners:  “What do you need, man?”

I thought he was gonna be 74 - same difference.  My older brother is one year younger.

My two younger brothers jokingly won't tell me their ages when I ask....I have to look it up.

I'm lucky I have good oldest had a mini stroke a while ago....hardly any other ailments.

Re good genes, both overweight, smoking German parents lived a long time - father 76, mother 88, but both died of did my aunt.

BTW, German=eat meat, sausages 20 times  :P a day, plus my father worked in a butcher shop.

Re ailments, depression, social anxiety in the family.

Sorry about not giving so much feedback.

I can get confused with long posts or other people giving feedback....complicated to me.

Maybe I have slight undiagnosed ADD?  Not worth seeing a Dr. about.

Giving feedback to people in my comedy person says person says that......I lose track.


I meant "I disagree," Soozan.


I wouldn't say that about Soozan -
morbidly obese

Anyway, judging people by their appearance - I'm sure everyone does that...maybe just subconscious.

Speaking of judging by appearance, I've seen this in many commercials - a guy showing another guy
a better or improved product, the guy being shown the product has less hair, or is a little overweight, therefore inferior  >:(

I've seen it many times in commercials.  Infomercial for frying pan or whatever, they show the guy doing it the old/bad way - the guy is fat and bald....therefore inferior  >:( 

Keep an eye out on tv....

The worst example of this is (not a commercial) George on Seinfeld he's:
-a round (not square jawed) face

What a loser!.......LOL  I wonder how many actors they auditioned to find that?

Kramer on Seinfeld is quirky.....therefore, let's choose a quirky looking actor!

Newman on Seinfeld is quirky..."   "    "             "  "  "                                   -he's quirky, AND sneaky let's choose a pudgy, below average-faced actor with glasses!   >:(  (slightly odd voice also)

What, no bald actor?

S, I'm a night owl, but I'm trying to change.

I miss out on stuff during the day if I sleep in.

(Susan has 67 1/2 year old sisters? :-*)

Hi....Peter here..  I was very self conscious and anxious a lot of my life.  A lot of it faded away, thank goodness (I'm 68) in June.  I worked on my social phobia the last few years.  A lot of this runs in the family - I have 4 brothers, and my late mother was very anxious.

Years ago I was diagnosed with dysthymia, which means low-grade, long term depression.  My ex psychiatrist diagnosed me.  I had been seeing him for years, but two years or so, he "dropped" me, as I had only been seeing him twice a year lately.

Cognitive behaviour therapy, CBT helped me to try and combat/change negative thoughts.  I still carry the CBT forms with me sometimes....just in case.

I get depressed sometimes, but I often can't figure out what the trigger is.  Or "triggers?"

I take Wellbutrin XL, Cipralex and Clonazepam.

A previous Laughing like Crazy joke -
I've been taking meds a looong time!
I started on Gerbers Cipralex, then moved up to Flintstones Cipralex.
Now I take Cipralex Senior - it's an antidepressant and a laxative!


I'm talking a Laughing like Crazier course now that leads up to a show in April.

I used to collect old stuff like radios, bottles, tins.  Now I mainly have tiny and miniature things...interesting rocks.

I'm known for bringing props to the Crazier classes support groups.  I have stuff like a phone from 1980, odd knickknacks like plastic clapping hands, a small electric megaphone that changes my voice into alien voices....doesn't work that well.

Was trying to learn ukulele....may switch back to keyboard.
