The key to making it through hard times is to still be able to laugh at yourself and the world, right?

The key to making it through hard times is to get up one time more than you're knocked down. Sort of like how the key to flying is to throw yourself at the ground and miss. But yes, laughing helps a lot, too.

Who's the picture of? She looks extraordinarily like Carol. Carol even had that haircut briefly.

It's from the cover of Arrow's Fall, by Mercedes Lackey.

*looks at some other covers from the series*

I have no idea who this character is, but if it weren't for the fact that she was 10 years old at the time, Carol could have practically posed for these. That's freaky.

First trainee, then Herald Talia, who becomes the King's Own. Not that that necessarily means anything to you, either, unless you've read any more of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar books.

Well, there's also getting the hard times go away, but man does the laughter help keep you going till then.

But the hard times never really go away! There's always more hard times to take the ORIGINAL hard times' place!

Yeah, but some hard times are easier to deal with than others. And sometimes just the change in and of itself can be a relief.

Dear me, yes, I think so. In my case, at least. I am very fortunate in having a more or less invincible sense of humor; I can think of only a few instances in which it has abandoned me.

Love the icon, BTW.

(Come to think of it, the other thing that unfailingly cheers me up is cosmic horror— Lovecraftian fiction. I doubt that that applies to anybody else, though.)

Bah, I love Lovecraft, and/or a good game of Arkham Horror any day!

"Ha ha! Take that, previously-unflagging rational skepticism of the protagonist! Why shouldn't a de la Poer eat forbidden things NOW, huh?"

Lovecraft is all good.

Oh man, SO many comments about not being alone I could relate to Lovecraft, I CAN'T PICK JUST ONE!

I used to cheer myself up by reading Ravenloft books. ^^

Hey, some of the Ravenloft books were awesome. I was always fond of Azalin, and it's pretty impressive that the second of the books about him got itself completely banned from canon.

Well, yes, but they tended to be a progression of horror and doom. ^^
