Blog Comment Day and more ...

Make Time for Small Reflections
Reminder: Today is Blog Comment Day
(Click for more details)

The goal is to make the Blogosphere a more 'conversational place' ... and that's something I can get behind.
1) Leave a comment on at least 5 different blogs.
2) Out of the 5 blogs, at least 2 of them will be blogs you've not commented on previously.
So ... let's all make it happen! Leave a comment on John Smulo’s blog
here if you plan to participate.

A bit of humor ...
Southern University Psychology
At a southern university, students in the psychology program were attending their first class on emotional extremes.

"Just to establish some parameters," said the professor to the student from Arkansas, "what is the opposite of joy?"

"Sadness," said the student.

"And the opposite of depression?" he asked of the young lady from Oklahoma.

"Elation," she said.

"And you sir," he said to the young man from Texas, "what about the opposite of woe?"

The Texan replied, "Sir, I believe that would be 'giddy up' ."

A Quiz for You ...
You Are Romanticism

You are likely to see the world as it should be, not as it is.

You prefer to celebrate the great things people do... not the horrors they're capable of.

For you, there is nothing more inspiring than a great hero.

You believe that great art reflects the artist's imagination and true ideals.
If you decide to take this quiz
please leave your results in comments
or a link to where I can find them on your blog.

Thought for Today

Karen said...

I'm "Expressionism"--"moody, emotional, and even a bit angsty." I have a "true artist's temperament...which is a blessing and a curse."

Sounds about right. ;)

The joke really made me chuckle and I just love the photo of the dog! LOL

Sandee said...

I stole the joke and it will post tomorrow. I gave you credit of course.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

You Are Impressionism
You think the world is quite beautiful, especially if you look at it in new and interesting ways.
You tend to focus on color and movement in art.
For you, seeing the big picture is much more important than recording every little detail.
You can find inspiration anywhere... especially from nature.
Have a wonderful Wednesday :o)

Love the joke and the photo of the dog! Hilarious!

I really like your thought for the day too. Very nice!

Robin said...

That dog's got a great sense of humor, and I admit that I laughed too.

Mary said...


I love your though for today. It is right on. We need a sense of humor to get us through the bumpy places in life.

Enjoyed your post today. The photo of the dog is so cute.

Hope all is well with you, my friend.
