Makeup on babies... it's fun again!

Hmm... maybe having a baby would be fun! I had never considered the styling possibilities until watching Elvira... so much potential.

The Piggy-Back Ride: It's Fun Again!

The piggy-back ride: it's not just for lazy 2-year-olds or drunk girls anymore...

The surgical mask: it's fun again!

First it was fun for surgery (bo-ring!)... then it was fun for SARS (so 2003)... and now it's fun AGAIN with the swine flue!

When will the surgical mask not be in style? So I recommend coughing up some money for a classy version of this airborne disease protector.

Bonus points if it matches your purse or panties, but any design will do as long as it goes with this season's color palette!

Pimping your mom's ride: it's fun again!

I'm not entirely sure about the ItsFunAgain.com demographic yet... are any of my readers 16 year old boys who think they're pretty bad-ass but are stuck driving around in their mom's old Honda Civics? I'm guessing there's at least a few of you out there, so this one's for you!

All you have to do is save up a few months of allowance and go buy yourself a mountable, one-size-fits-all aluminum spoiler (like this Double Decker Fury Wing for only $169). Just drill a couple of holes in the trunk, screw it on, and you're looking like a pimply little gangster in no time. Not to mention how fast you'll be able to drive to the mall!

Never looking slutty... it's fun (for some people, I guess) again!

Are you one of those people that never wants to look remotely slutty ever? Even at the beach? Well, I'm not... but if that's you (bless your heart) then do I have something fun again for you! The "Wholesome Wear" swim dress will guarantee that you look, um, wholesome... even when frolicking in the waves on a nice sunny day!

According to their handy online store, "The spandex undergarment fits like a body suit, while the loose fitting Taslan outer garment limits cling and adds modesty and style".

That's hot! (And by "hot" I mean you'll feel warm in it).

Making a living off being a douche bag: it's fun again!

I'm not even kidding (though I kind of wish I were)... you can hire this guy to drive you around Chicago: http://ferrariguyforhire.com/

He makes $300/hour. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work!

admitting that silly cat pictures actually make me smile - it's fun again!

Anyone have one of those friends whe sends the random emails with "cute kitty pictures" just to brighten your day?

(That's all, just wondering if anyone has one of those friends)

the dog-actor, it's fun again!

This is just a quick tribute to the beloved "Tiger" from The Brady Bunch who sadly passed away last week from a rare vision disorder from years of reading his lines on set. To support my charity to fight against long hours on the set for dogs and cats - please visit my website at www.dogsandcatsshouldntbeallowedtobecalledactors.com

I appreciate your interest in a cause that means so much to me

the COME BACK! it's fun again!

the thing with the "come back" is that it's almost better than it was the FIRST time around. So, don't even think that my short hiatus was unintentional biyatch! :) Oh, i missed you guys!

(Does anyone want to admit it or am i going to have to be the first one? O.k. - i'll take the heat on this one cuz i'm not scared - the SCRUNCHY IS BACK and it's functional AND pretty sexy....keep it real & just be you...wear that scrunchy you've been holding on to since 1993 - you won't regret it)

The Drink Umbrella: It's Fun Again!

Here at It's Fun Again Inc., we're always trying to find ways to make the mundane more exciting. So along those lines, here's a little tip for making your beverage of choice more FUN (other than pouring booze into it) - add a cocktail umbrella!

Nothing brings a little bit of that relaxed, buzzed vacationy feeling into your morning status meeting like a drink umbrella in your double-tall-split-shot-nonfat-mochachino!

(And here's a tip for you downtown Seattle readers: they give out free drink umbrellas at the coffee counter inside Pacific Drugs on 1st & Marion... now you have no excuse to be missing out on all the fun)

The Contest: It's Fun Again!

Maybe this is just my competitive nature talking, but I think nothing makes an ordinary task exciting like turning it into a contest! Here are a few fun ideas to get you started:
  • Sleeping pill contest: everyone takes 1 sleeping pill / hour, and the last one awake wins. Must be done in recliners or lounge chairs.
  • Stupid staring contest: make the "stupid face" (mouth slightly open, eyelids droopy) and stare each other down.
  • Hot dog eating contest - yeah, it's totally been done before, but it's too fun not to mention!
Give one a try this weekend... and be sure to report back to me on who wins!

The Hammer Pant: It's Fun Again (really??)

OK, here's the fashion update straight from Berlin: the Hammer Pant (aka drop-crotch pant - sounds so hot doesn't it?) is back! Only now with more of that "I just pooped my pants" look than ever.

Seriously, they're everywhere, and it scares the crap out of me (apparently it scares the crap out of all the people wearing them too... literally).

I just wish they would invent a shirt that looks like I threw up down the front of it to go with them... let's go for the whole outfit!

FACT: it's fun again.

And suddenly you really believe me that it is fun again, don't you? How did I do that? Well, I preceded the statement I wanted you to unquestioningly accept with the word "FACT". It gave me a sense of authority and confidence that made the words following it seem more true. Am I right?

You try it... go make up a fact and then convince someone of it! (Just don't try it on me... I'm horribly gullible, so it won't count).

The Hawaiian Shirt - It's Fun Again!

...and so is bed head. So it looks like someone's having tons of fun again!

The See-Through Body Suit: It's Fun Again!

I guess I could have just left this as "the bodysuit: it's fun again" (because it is!) but the see-through part just makes it that much more fun.

While Cher seems to be the one bringing it back, I now intend to be the one KEEPING it back! That's right... I think I've found my new Tuesday outfit. It's perfect for that monthly revenue meeting, or just a casual hallway chat!

Now what earrings to wear...?

The Teriyaki Burger Shake: It's Fun Again!

It's really a lot better than it sounds. They take a cheeseburger (with bacon, if you want) and some teriyaki chicken, and blend them up with some creamy vanilla soft-serve ice cream. Sweet and savory... really great.

For those of you "fun again" readers in the greater Seattle area, you can pick yourself up one of these awesome dinner shakes on 80th & Greenwood. Go slurp one up for your next meal!

The bumper sticker: it's fun again!

Driving around is such an impersonal activity. Everyone is trapped in these metal boxes, moving past each other, not interacting. If only there were a way to express to people all of you quirky opinions, jokes, and motivational catch phrases while waiting at that stoplight.

Wait... there is! The bumper sticker! What it takes away from in your car's value it makes up for in other people's respect for your wittiness.

Anyone from the feminist hippy to the badass lowrider guy (his other ride is your daughter) can get their message heard with a little bumper flair! So stick it on there... if you like fun, that is.

Tasting like chicken: It's fun again!

In keeping with the initiative of having at least 10% of "fun again" things be booze related, here's a gem: chicken flavored vodka! Apparently this is what Polish people drink (bless their hearts). Now I can't read Polish, but I'm pretty sure the small text on the label says something like "made from the juice of baby chickens". Mmmm...

Interestingly enough, this thick yellow chicken vodka tastes more like maple syrup than McNuggets. And yes, it is FUN AGAIN!

The Cat Stroller: It's Fun Again!

Now that the weather is getting nicer and the days longer, I think it's time to give those baby strollers around greenlake a run for their money. That's right - I'm talking about the cat stroller.

You furry friend will love getting a bit of fresh air, watching all the leashed dogs sniffing at it's mesh window, and being admired by passerbys. And you'll be proud as punch too!

Oh and guys... cat stroller = chick magnet!

The 1/2 & 1/2 Animal... it's fun again!

No, I'm not talking about the elusive 1/2 & 1/2 milk-producing cow (I wish!)... I'm talking about animals that are 1/2 one animal, and 1/2 another.

While I have the most appreciation for the Jackalope, having grown up with them scurrying around my back yard (or sometimes flying over - the winged variety), I definitely have respect for the Liger, Griffin, and Zonkey too.

And don't even get me started on 1/2 human 1/2 animals. That's hot!

The _____ Collection: It's fun again!

There are not many things that give you as much meaning in life as picking a random yet specific object or theme and devoting yourself to collecting as many of that thing as possible.

While I don't have any collections at the moment (shoes don't count, right?), I'm going to go ahead and highlight some favorite collections from people that I know:
  • Snow globes
  • Frogs
  • Artsy hands
  • Maps drawn by people when you ask them for directions
  • Baby teeth from other people's children (ok, I don't actually know the tooth fairy, but that's the word on the street)
Collections are also fun (again) because they can generate catchy nicknames for you (e.g. "that crazy frog lady")!

5-in-1 Booze - It's FUN again!

I haven't blogged for a few days. Why, you ask? Because I recently discovered Desert Island Long Island Iced Tea Cocktail Mix, and have been passed out under a park bench since my first sip! This aptly-named beverage (the only bottle you would need to bring with you if you were stranded on a desert island) gives you 750 ml of Rum, Vodka, Gin, Tequila & Triple Sec for only $9.99 at your local Washington State Liquor Store!

I'm pretty sure it's the run-off from the booze factory, but somehow it has found the perfect balance of flavors. If your palette isn't quite distinguished enough for drinking this baby straight, I highly recommend it with Hawaiian fruit punch and a splash of grenadine.

Box of wine, move aside - there's a new park bench companion in town!

TAXIDERMY. it's fun again!

I knew that i had to come out of hiding with a bang! so I was like - "jage, what is the funnest thing you can think of that is fun again?" & i remembered one of my favorite hobbies from when i was a little girl; the ancient art of taxidermy. You may ask yourself "what is taxidermy?" and to that i say "just look at the picture above this text, dummy!" It's about taking an animal that is not alive and putting it in your favorite pose, stuffing it with newspaper (or shredded crinkle paper) and putting marbles in the eye sockets and hanging it on your wall in the den or standing in your entryway.

Making your house classy: It's fun again!

There are a couple of sure-fire ways to turn your house from average to classy: lion statues (best to have a pair of them on either side of a door) or marble columns.

The lion option is nice because it's both sophisticated and mildly intimidating. But I kind of prefer the marble column route because it reminds me of living in the Parthenon (which, incidentally, I once built out of noodles for a school project).

It's important that the columns aren't actually providing any structural support - that makes them seem to utilitarian. Bedrooms and bathrooms are a great place for them, or you can wow the neighbors with a column or two in your front yard!

Breakfast for Dinner: It's FUN Again!

Breakfast for dinner: it makes you feel like you still have the whole day ahead of you! What's not fun about that?

How to be fun again...

I was checking the keyword searches that result in visits to our blog yesterday on Google Analytics and found a really great one. Someone had typed in "How can I start being fun again?", and naturally www.itsfunagain.com came up!

I'm glad we could be here to help, random searcher, but I also feel kind of bad that we've never provided a quick to-do list for those trying to become fun again. So here it is... if I can help only one person, my work here is done!

How to Start Being Fun Again:
  1. Always be the drunkest person in the room. Sometimes this requires starting drinking before everyone else.
  2. Make sure everyone can hear the fun things you're saying... this will require talking over other people, so speak up!
  3. Wear t-shirts that say funny things on them: that way you're being fun even when you're not talking.
  4. Dancing is fun. Interpretive dancing is more fun. Interpretive dancing in public places with no music playing is the most fun.
I hope this is enough to get you started. For a full training on how to become fun again, you really need to keep reading all of the posts here... it's not an overnight process people!

Fake farting: it's fun again!

I won't speak for everyone here... some people actually did read the book (or at least know what book it was). But as for me, I think the best thing about book club is making farting noises with my new iFart app! Seriously, there's nothing funnier than staging a "brown mosquito" behind someone in the midst of a plot summary! Or interrupting a heated debate with a "dirty raoul".

But don't take my word for it. Here's an enlightening report on the Today Show about iFart... yet more proof that I could totally be a talk show host!

the word of the day! - it's fun again

Really - would everyone please join me in giving a gigantic shout-out to the best show that was ever made?! PEE WEE could have been the single most influential person in my early childhood (besides my mom, dad, 2 sisters, 3 brothers, 27 cousins, 59 uncles, 35 aunts, 3 best friends and my 2 cats: Misty and Tigger 1 - sorry Tigger 2...no cat could ever quite replace Tigger 1).

Let's get back on topic. I quite liked the concept of the "word of the day" that was featured on every episode of PEE WEE's Playhouse (each Saturday @ 9:00 a.m. 20 years ago...Fuck i'm old)

I would like to propose a "word of the day" for today - since it's 10:50 pm right now - let's go ahead and say that this word will be the official "word of the day" until 10:50 (give or take a few minutes) on Tuesday.

Every time you hear the "word of the day" between now and then - you must YELL at the top of your lungs...that's the rule.

The word is: SQUIRT

(I just love that word.)

have fun with this one guys and girls

The Chain E-mail... It's Fun Again!

We all have those special people in our lives that fill our inboxes with forwarded chain e-mails (bless their hearts). The chain e-mail can take many different forms, but I think they all share a basic formula:

The Story:
It may be a warning, a plea for help, a heart-warming experience (often influenced by god or angels), or a way to make a lot of $ fast.

The Call to Action:
You need to forward this e-mail to as many people as possible. This is really the only way to get the word out, let others be moved the way you just were, or rake in all the money you've been promised.

The Ultimatum:
You're either going to get everything you ever dreamed of for forwarding this e-mail, or be severely punished if you don't.

I only bring this up because if you tell 22 people about www.itsfunagain.com in the next week, we will grant you 3 wishes. I can't be held responsible for what will happen if you don't :)

Pass it on!!

The fanny pack: it's fun again!

Talk about form & function! I'm sorry, but if leg warmers and blue eyeshadow are going to come back as "retro", why can't we bring this purse/belt/fashion accessory back too??

The fanny pack is great because:
  1. You can easily access all of your essentials (like lip gloss and bubble gum)
  2. It's secure from purse snatchers
  3. It looks really, really cool
Now I know someone is taking the valuable advice that I offer up here, because I found my phone button taped down the other day :) So please, take this advice and BRING THE FANNY PACK BACK!

Selling Out: It's Fun Again!

It is with mixed emotions that I announce to you that we have decided to sell ItsFunAgain.com to Disney for $3.2M. We're really happy to be getting so much for it (we finally have enough money to pursue our dream of being dressed-up twin entertainers for children's parties) but we do feel a little bad for the selling out part.

But we won't be gone altogether. Disney is buying our blog to turn it into a Hannah Montana spin-off, and they want to keep us on as writers (I mean, what is really so different between us and a 13 year old Disney star... other than that we have real jobs!)

So please, keep reading our/Disney's blog... and pass on the good news to all the pre-teens in the family!

The office prank: it's fun again.

I was just reminded of my love for a good, clean office prank (or revenge there of... watch your back Hernan!). Nothing spices up the work day, and instills a sense of anger and paranoia in your coworkers, like a well-executed office prank!

You really need to work with your resources and know your audience, but here are a few ideas to get the creative juices flowing:
  • Filling/covering a person's office/cubicle with [fill in the blank with your favorite material]
  • Rendering a person's computer or phone useless through the use of clear tape (e.g. taping bottom of mouse or hang-up button on phone)
  • Replacing person's computer and monitor with similar-shaped objects (e.g. microwave and toaster)
  • Sending "private" e-mails from a person's unlocked computer
  • And of course the old classic "acid in the water cooler" trick ;)

The wacky handshake... it's fun again!

I learned a lot in LA this weekend. For example, I was taught the Farmer Handshake... and now I want to impart this knowledge to you!

You have your friend interlock their fingers, palms pointing away, thumbs pointing down. And then... you "milk" their thumbs, as though they were udders! It's genius in it's simplicity. See, not having grown up on a farm, I didn't even know that's how farmers shake hands... it's udderly fun! (sorry)

The $15 corndog: it's fun again!

Sun. Beer. Pool. Fun again.

Nothing witty or clever about this post (sarcasm is out in LA)... this
just literally IS fun again!

The "random" use of quotation marks... it's "fun" again!

When you put quotation marks "around" a word, it can imply that the word is not meant to be "taken" literally. This can be really fun to do at random, because it keeps people "guessing" about what you're really trying to say.

There are a two ways to get this "effect": through writing (like my favorite sign from the late great Sunset Bowl), or by "using" your fingers to signify quotation marks when talking.

So go ahead... put "something" in quotes. If you know what I mean...

Sharing personal feelings through blogging - it' fun again!

hi Reba! I thought it was time to send you a personal note through our VERRRRY public blog. I just want you to know that this experience (blogging with you) has really changed my life. I think that we really have a future in the blogging industry and I think you're fun/sassy and a good dancer. Coffee? OR, how about a trip to L.A.?


your BFF

the "tighty whitey" - it's fun again!

Remember when underwear for men used to be SO simple?! There was the one tried and true favorite "tighty whitey". THEN over the last 10-15 years, underwear manufacturers and fashionistas decided - let's make men's underwear black and make 'em a little longer - 'cause then guys can look like they're ready for a night out on the town when they strip down to their skivvies...

That's cool & all, but I'd like to give a little shout out to my old friend the "tighty whitey"! Let me emphasize the word "white". These really lose their attraction when they start to become more of an "off-white"....


*Also, here's to all the ladies who had this poster in their room as a 12 year old. Nice package

Neutralizing an Insult: It's fun again!

Here's a little secret for you, dear It's Fun Again readers: it's perfectly acceptable to insult anyone behind their back, as long as you follow whatever you're saying with "bless his/her heart". It shows that you really are fond of that person, and so you are in an appropriate position to constructively criticize them.

For example... "Sally is such a dirty little whore (bless her heart!)". Or "Shelton is just a twinkle-toed cock-sucker (bless his heart)". See, you can tell that I actually really care about Sally and Shelton, which is why I bring up these slight character flaws.

Now you try it!

Letting everyone know how you're feeling through your jewelry: It's fun/stylish again!

I'm a complex girl, with lots of moods... such as "calm", "nervous", "lovable" (yup, that's a mood), and "very happy". But I don't always have the time to let everyone know what mood I happen to be feeling at the moment. That's where the mood ring comes in!

Without having to utter a word, I can tell my coworkers that I'm feeling "fear" during this meeting. Or tell the grocery store bagger that I'm currently feeling "passion". Or maybe just let the bus driver know that I'm "cool".

There are of course other fun options for sharing your mood too... like mood t-shirts. But if you want to avoid big under-arm color changes, I highly recommend the mood ring for being fashionable and sharing your feelings!

CANADA - it's fun (and delicious) again!

Oh, Canada! Why do you produce the most tasty snacks ever? And why have we, your culinarily inferior neighbors, not caught up with your genius snacking options?

I've compiled a list of a few favorites that so far I've only found in Canada:
  • Muchies: Frito Lay swept their factory floor into a perfectly balanced bag of cheetos, pretzels, doritos and sun chips!
  • Poutine: Mashed potoatos topped with french fries topped with cheese curds topped with gravy. 'Nuf said.
  • Candy: They put the "can" into candy! I always find some gems up there, like this "Mr. 2 Big" bar that's been in my junk drawer for about a year now... just can't bring myself to eat it!
  • Moose cock
So go ahead... break out a Can 'o Da snacks!!

the topless photoshoot - it's fun again!

hi - can you say "SEXY SEXY SEXY"? Why have shirts on for your photoshoot, when you can be topless? That's what I always say...

But really. Aren't you just glad that I searched the archives of Google Images and found this gem of a photo of "our" favorite singing/dancing/loveable duo Wham? God bless these guys.

the mustache - it's fun again!

Sorry guys - this one is all about the female mustache...I was looking in the mirror today and said to myself - "Jage! When did you get a mustache?" It's quite beautiful really. I think I will embrace it.
Why should guys have all the fun?

a.m. ale - it's fun again!

i was just remembering my favorite beverage..."a.m. ale"! It is so tasty...

*the song is pretty catchy.
