When I can't sleep, I find good jokes

I was up at all hours last night with unexplained insomnia. Well, not quite unexplained - you take a 46-year-old perimenopausal women, mix in a whole lot of stress, take away her money, then just sit back and watch her life go to hell in a handbasket.

Anyway, while up I found The Vicar Of Dibley playing on PBS. LOVE this show - if you've never seen it you're missing come great stuff.

At the end, Geraldine (the Vicar) always tells Alice (played to perfection by Emma Chambers) a joke. Alice never gets it, and becomes upset by the content. You have to see this - it's incredible.

On to last night's joke:
Santa Claus goes to the doctor and says "Doctor, I think there's a mince pie up my bum". The doctor has a good look and say "Yes Santa, I'm afraid you've got a mince pie up your bum. But don't worry, I have some cream for that."

This is cute--Fran posted a joke from it last night on "of course I could be on vacation."

I'm a huge Brit-com fan. I will watch the same episodes over and over. And I go to sleep nearly every night watching Agatha Christie murder mysteries. Poirot or Miss Marple. There's something soothing about them, even though their about murder.

I love TVOD! Oh how I do and those jokes.

And what Missy said is true- I posted a joke about a naked nun and a blind man at a guest blog!

BTW - sorry about the stress and sleeplessness... I get it. I am 50 and often awake in the wee hours for what may be similar reasons.

Some biological, some financial, some just 10 pounds of sh*t in a 9 pound bag.

I empathize with the stress, sleeplessness, worry, etc. I'm sorry all that is on your plate.
This coping technique is cool.

Don't even get me started on how much Sparky loves this show. She watches the DVD's over and over and over.
