Santa is in ICU because you didn’t behave.

OMG! It is December 8th. Now the Scrooges must stop humbugging about Christmas décor and bitching about the over commercialism of this holiday. It is time for all of you to pretend you love the season and are always in the spirit. Honestly, how many of you listen to Christmas music in the summer? We do but then again we are fanatics who should probably stick to our medication schedules. Just to show all of you how warm and tingly we are during this time of year, we are giving away a Dysaffirmation basket! You are probably wondering, ‘What the hell is in a Dysaffirmation basket?’ Glad you asked. We will include a Dysaffirmation Book, a Dysaffirmation coffee mug, a Dysaffirmation t-shirt and a magnet! We’ve gone completely insane! Check in tomorrow for details on how 3 lucky winners can win. Why are we doing this? We’re just showing our kids that it’s nice to give while lying to them about everything else.

You Know You Want to.

Wondering what you should buy your special someone for Christmas? How about some Dysaffirmations?! During this wonderful Christmas season, don’t some of your friends need reminders like a t-shirt that says ‘Toxic relationships are better than loneliness’? Or a mug that reminds us that ‘Magic, like happiness, is just another lie we tell our children’. It just warms your heart, doesn’t it?

Success and other dirty words.

If adversity breeds triumph then success spawns destruction. Marriage bonds have snapped under its tensile strength and many a child has been crushed by success’ weight. So, we at CoupleDumb, after an incredibly successful launch of our book Dysaffirmations: Because this kind of stupid takes work on Saturday, are going into Monday writing about success and doing everything that it can not to do what is natural when facing the monster we call success; run for the hills.

Lighten Up!!!

Happy Monday everybody! We hope you enjoyed the holiday weekend for those of you who live in the states and we genuinely hope you took the time to watch the web series ‘Chris and Kate’ last week. It was an honor and a privilege to dissect those messed up characters and Chris Purnell is one sick puppy for coming up with that stuff. We are starting an introspective phase at CoupleDumb. We have discussed dysfunction and therapy. We have showed some great examples of how we screw up relationships and how too much of a good thing is not healthy. But in everything we do, from the heavy to the hippy stuff, we keep our sense of humor. What we’re saying is lighten up!

The Big Dysaffirmation

We have been talking about Dysaffirmations all week; how we use them with our kids, our significant others, and how much chaos they bring to us. But each of those little dysaffirmations is a symptom of what we consider to be our big dysaffirmation, our core dysfunctional belief that serve as the queen to all of our other little crazies.

I am not worthy.

There was a guy one night on a dark deserted road that got a flat tire and realized he had no jack. In the distance he saw a light and thought to himself, ‘Maybe it’s a house’. He started walking towards the light and as he got closer he realized he was correct and thought, ‘Maybe they have a jack’. As he approached the yard he saw that there were several cars parked in front and thought, ‘One of these cars must have a jack.’ As he walked up the walkway he thought, ‘What if these guys are a bunch of dicks and won’t let me borrow it?’ As he knocked on the door he became angry at the thought. By the time the door opened he was fuming and said ‘Shove your jack up your ass’.

Celebrity Smackdown – Mel Gibson

It’s a Dysaffirmation week and we are enjoying the sideways glances from all. Yes, we know your dirty little secret. Our Dysaffirmations are funny but some are so true. When people bitch and moan about the truth, we simply point to what people believe. If you repeat it enough times, it becomes true. If your parents or other significant life figure tells you enough times, it becomes true. Just ask Mel Gibson.

Dysaffirmations

After last week’s insanity of putting on a radio show and campaigning for Mother of All Bloggers, we decided that this week we wanted to get back to the roots of what this blog is all about. This is CoupleDumb. The word dumb is right in the name. So, this week we are going to look at the stupid things that people do to screw up their relationship, their families, their children and themselves.

Dreams do come true but sometimes they look funny.

We’ve been writing about dreams all week and here we are on our favorite day of the week, Thursday. This day is devoted to the core relationship. We don’t care if your dating, living together, married, in domestic partnership or unwilling to define or label your love. We are talking about two people relating. So put on your sun dress and kick off your shoes to run through the metaphorical meadows of dreams with us.
