Do you laugh very much?

I have found that since I moved to USA the amount of laughing that I do or things that amuse me seem to be few & far between.

I wonder is it that I am older? Have I lost my sense of humour? Do I miss the English sarcasm & people on my humour wave length so that you can compete bouncing off each others comments? 

Kids amuse me and I do tend to read English authors for a laugh eg Sohie Kinsella. Which brings me to a movie that Sir L & I saw last week.."Couples Retreat.:'"

This is worth going to see as we howled with laughter. The scenic shots are breathtaking & the morals behind the story pretty real life scenarios.

So if you want a laugh go and see this film...its good for both men & women.Vince Vaughan is hilarious with his facial expressions.

Have a laugh!

Hi Daffodilly, your post really touched me because I do find that laughs with new friends are more limited since I left London to live in Andalucia some three years ago. I think it has to do with having to learn a second language and trying to cope with a vastly different view of comedy and sense of humour but having said that I adore living here and am in no rush to return to London.

Would love to see 'Couples Retreat' and will see if I can download it after I leave this comment. Loved my first read here:)

I'll take a look at that. I rarely even laugh at movies these dys - unless they're really good British ones.

I completely agree - there is much less 'banter' here, deliberate punning and witticisms. It sounds really snobby to say that, but I know exactly what you mean. I think it's a cultural sense of humour difference, that and people don't take the piss out of themselves as much over here.
