Okay, so here’s the deal.

I only mention it because a couple of folks have mentioned this to me…about me…whatever. It’s been said lately that one of the myriad reasons I should rule the universe is because I make people laugh. I think that’s okay. I think that’s a good reason to rule the universe.

Because there is truth to this: that what you put out into the world comes back to you, and usually it comes back to you magnified threefold. And I’d much prefer to enjoy things (and enjoy not enjoying things, if that makes sense) than have the universe be cross or impatient or grumpity with me. Or sad.

So my friend Jackie said this: “I love hanging out with cenobyte because it doesn’t matter where we go, or what we do, everyone cenobyte talks to, she makes them laugh.” [Ed. Note: not by poking them in the eyes. I have discovered, through trial and error, that poking folks in the eyes does not make them laugh. It makes them very, very irritated. Also, it took me three tries to type ‘trial’. I kept typing ‘trail and error’, which is a different concept entirely.]

My co-worker Double D said, of our recent trip to Ottawa, that he enjoyed traveling with me because wherever we went, I made people happy.

And I’m okay with that. I’m *really* okay with that.

Babies laughing makes the world better:

    “Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry and you cry alone.” A hard lesson. A necessary one. One you’ve clearly learned.

    Or wait a minute, could it go “Laugh and they’ll give you a tv show, cry and you’re stuck with Can Lit.”

    They said about the great Saskatchewan writer Gertrude Story, “Gertrude has always made us laugh, but lately while we’re laughing we notice we also feel a bit like crying.” A worthy goal to aspire to.

    “One minute she’ll be laughing, then she’s crying on someone’s knee,
    Saying laughing and crying, you know, it’s the same release.” — the Great One: Joni

    Laughing relaxes all kinds of muscles in your body/mind/spirit and, as we all know, clenched muscles don’t heal.

    Take a laughter therapy workshop with Jayne Clendenning.

    Some people say you can’t smoke and cry at the same time, but can you smoke/laugh?

    “The sound of laughter is god’s lightest gift to us,” he laughed, wickedly.
