If you can make a girl laugh...

"If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything..."
- Marilyn Monroe


Some people say that good looks gets the girl, others charm. Still others may think that it's money that will win a girl's heart, but for me, it's a sense of humor.

IMHO, my boyf is handsome, charming, and funny. Being human and a girl with reasonably good eyesight, I was first attracted to him for his looks. His charm taught me that he knew enough to say the right thing at the right time. But it was his most awesome sense of humor that taught me this was a boy worth keeping.

My favorite types of movies tend to have some comedic aspect to them. Romantic comedies are the best. I think "When Harry Met Sally" is classic. (If you have not seen this movie, run, do not walk, to the nearest video rental store and get it. Heck, you should just buy it -- you won't regret it!)

I also like watching stand-up comedy, something I've never done in person. (Puts that on bucket list.) My current favorite comedian is Demetri Martin. He just tickles my funny bone like nobody else in the comedy scene. Demetri Martin's got a new show on Comedy Central called "Important Things" that premiers tonight at 10:30. I worry that the switch from stand-up comedy to sketch comedy won't go well for him, but at least the previews I saw on Comedy Central's website didn't look so bad. We shall see.

Here is an audio clip with some of my personal favorite jokes of his. Let me know how you like it. :)

So what is it about the opposite (or same) sex that draws you in? Are you like me, and appreciate a good sense of humor, or is there something else that captures your heart?

I discovered Demetri through a random comment on Protagonize - isn't he great?

I loves me a smart comedian.
