Kimberley Laws, Blogger


A model's interpretation of the phenomenon that is known as Kimberley Laws.

Today, I am pleased to introduce you to the utterly hilarious, Kimberley Laws. She has a quirky and funny blog that is chock full of her witty and off-the-wall observations about life. It's well worth checking out! I thought it'd be fun to pick the mind of a humorist, so here's a fun romp through the thoughts of Kimberley Laws. Enjoy!



SJ: Your blog is a collection of your quirky musings and humorous stories. What made you decide to start a blog?

KL: Living in my brain can be exhausting. While some people's minds are like a highway that travels in a straight line, taking you from one logical destination to another, mine is like a maze of off-ramps. My thoughts start okay, but they, inevitably, wind up taking a wrong turn and jumping off a cliff. I don't want to be alone with these thoughts, so I thought a blog would be a great way to channel my mental tangents into something productive. Plus, I was hoping a therapist might read it.


SJ: What can you tell us about your current writing project?

KL: I am currently writing a book based on The Embiggens project, but, hopefully better. I drag my husband into this one a lot more, which he, of course, appreciates immensely.


SJ: What is one of the silliest things that’s ever happened to you?

KL: It's hard to narrow it down to just one. I have thrown up on my steering wheel. That was fun. I have also accidentally gone to work with a Dole banana sticker on my forehead.


SJ: You are a funny lady! Who are some of your favorite comedians?

KL: My life revolves around Seinfeld-isms, so there's him. I also loved John Pinette. He died way too soon. Stephen Wright, Robin Williams, Paula Poundstone, Danny Bhoy, Ellen DeGeneres, Ricky Gervais. I also live on a steady diet of sitcoms.


SJ: Is it easy for you to find humor in everyday life, or is it just specific incidents that happen from time to time that really get you inspired?

KL: I am a five foot tall redhead with asthma, a tongue that feels too big for her mouth, an OCD-inspired need to check everything in the house a hundred times, and a perpetual nose whistle. I am always up for a good laugh.


SJ: Do you have any favorite blogs to read?

KL: I love Jenny Lawson--the Bloggess (https://thebloggess.com/). She is a comedic genius. Another girl that cracks me up is Jodi Ambrose (https://jodiambroseblog.com/). I love her irreverent style. Plus, she's a great person.


SJ: What is one unusual thing you like, or are able to do?

KL: I can inhale my nostrils shut. This is fun to do at social gatherings--until I get dizzy or pass out.


SJ: Is there a particular person, place, or thing that never fails to make you laugh?

KL: We feed the crows around our house. They are feathered comedians--always getting peanut buttered bread stuck to their feet or approaching the garden hose like it's a giant anaconda. Plus, there's one that sounds just like Homer Simpson screaming.


SJ: What kind of job do you have? Does it provide you with lots of funny stories?

KL: I work in a book store, so yes, the general public is the world's greatest source of amusement. "I saw a book in here about a month ago. It was red. The writing on the cover may have been yellow. Do you know where it is?" This happens much more often than you'd think.


SJ: You’ve branded yourself across social media as an Ugly Doll. What is it about these adorable creatures that fits your online presence?

KL: I decided to go back to University late in life and had to spend Monday to Friday away from home and my husband. I found Wage in a toy store. He had an apron on and looked like a hard worker. I had a big job ahead of me and felt a kinship with this little dude. He's been my representative ever since. Plus, he's small in stature and orange, so it's not a big stretch.


SJ: What made you realize that you had a gift for storytelling and got you interested in pursuing writing?

KL: I have some pretty strong opinions and a rather acerbic wit, so I started writing editorials for the local paper. People seemed to enjoy them and, let's face it, I loved the attention.


I'm glad you did, Kimberley! Looking forward to your book project. Thank you so much for stopping by!
