Worth 1000 Words?

By Crabby McSlacker

So if a picture is worth a thousand words, and a short video is made up of hundreds of pictures, is a short video worth hundreds of thousands of words? And what if you don't make the video yourself but steal it straight off YouTube?




So yeah, this video, which all of you have probably already seen by now but I hadn't, cracked me up. And it offers a little metaphorical motivational encouragement. (Note: you can turn off the sound if you're at work, you don't really need it).

Are there "stairs" in life that others seem to ascend and descend with no problem, but somehow you just can't seem to get the hang of 'em?  If so, what do you do: find your own awkward way, or avoid them entirely and keep your world just a little smaller? (Personally, I've tried both ways.)

And yeah, it's summer, so as is customary, my blogging activity is getting even more sporadic and superficial than in other seasons. But I'm okay with that. You too may find that summertime offers many more absorbing options besides the interwebs. Beaches, bike trails, festivals, parties, parades, pools, forest paths, foreign lands, ferries, roller coasters, kites to fly, sprinklers to run under, campfires to light, gardens to tend to, hobbies to obsess over, watermelons to eat, and naps to take.

¡Hasta luego!

What kind of fun are you guys planning on having this summer when you're not at work or on the web?

  1. The pug killed me! I love a good dog video. :)

    My summer fun is fluid - I'm saying yes to more outdoor activities even though we live in the flames of hell. Two showers a day are becoming the norm; but hey, gotta have fun, right?

    1. I admire you getting out there in those flames Shelley! If I lived in Texas I'd be hugging the AC unit all day long! Good for the biceps maybe but not much else. :)

  2. Canada turns 150, and same weekend as Canada Day, Dad turns 80! Huge long weekend party. The highlight will be a cruise around the thousand islands on the evening of Canada Day. They wait to start a massive fireworks display until our ship pulls into the harbour. I always go to this fireworks show but this is the first year I will take the ship.
    Rest of the summer will be recovery and maybe enjoying some more Canada 150 events.

  3. I was thinking just a few days ago that what I love most about summer is not having to DO anything in order to stay warm. Right now I'm trying to schedule the rest of my vacation days that I'm supposed to use up before August 15th, and not conflict with anybody else's vacation, or when the "teenagers" go back to college and suddenly deplete our workforce. When I get them I plan to do as little as possible!

    1. Hope the wedding is fun and that the work ends up feeling more like "play!" Or at least that it ain't too miserable.

    2. OK my blogger comment thing is messing with me, that last comment was supposed to be for Mimi! The comment I wrote to you Jody, which disappeared, was that you are so capable and enthusiastic I hope you find an awesome job, and that you have a wonderful family gathering! Let's see if it ends up in the right place this time...
