25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking “Oh shit, what the hell happened?”.




26. You read this entire list looking desperately for one sign that doesn’t apply to you and can’t find one to save your sorry old ass. Then you forward it to a bunch of old friends ’cause you know they’ll enjoy it too. And now you know why I am forwarding this to you…


Double Bonus:


27. You know you’re old when you still “forward” things to people in emails as opposed to posting them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or blogs.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.
12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don’t want to have to restart my collection…again.
13. I’m always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

Dear Wife, I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I’m leaving you forever. I’ve been a good man to you for 7 years & I have nothing to show for it. These last 2 weeks have been hell. … Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today & that was the last straw. Last week, you came home & didn’t even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal & even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps. You don’t tell me you love me anymore; you don’t want sex or anything that connects us as husband & wife. Either you’re cheating on me or you don’t love me anymore; whatever the case, I’m gone.

Your EX-Husband
P.S. don’t try to find me. Your SISTER & I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life! ——

Dear Ex-Husband Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It’s true you & I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you’ve been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining & griping Too bad that doesn’t work. I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the 1st thing that came to mind was ‘You look just like a girl!’ Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can’t say something nice, I didn’t comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, & I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed $50 from me that morning. After all of this, I still loved you & felt we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for 10 million dollars, I quit my job & bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica But when I got home you were gone.. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won’t get a dime from me. So take care.

Signed, Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Hell & Free!
P.S. I don’t know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that’s not a problem..

Roseanne S:6-E:4 (more from) “A Stash from the Past”

Roseanne pulls back shower curtain, “Oh hi Jackie! We thought you went home.”

Jackie’s response: “Look at me. I got nothing. No boyfriend, no meaningful job, no husband, no family. It’s just me.”

Jackie holds up the bad of pot. “It’s just me and my ganja.”

Roseanna gives Jackie the rest of the fudgepop. Then falls over laughing hysterically.


~I fell over laughing hysterically at this too!!

Roseanne S:6-E:4 “A Stash from the Past”

During the scene with Dan and Roseanne, where they are hanging out in the bathroom after (presumably) getting stoned…

Dan is pouring his heart out to Rosanne as she eats a fudgepop. (Roseanne seems more interested in her frozen treat than in Dan’s words)


“Nobody loves me.” says Jackie from behind the shower curtain.

Freaked out looks from Dan and Roseanne, as they didn’t know Jackie was in the bathtub.

~This scene reminds me of “Ignore the man behind the curtain.” from ‘The Wizard of Oz’. I nearly pmsl when ever I watch it! LOL!!
