An occasional blog.
I want to give people a super sticky note upside the head
Lol I saw this yesterday when he put that thing on, was hilarious.
i love Get Fuzzy. it's one of my favorite cartoons.
LOL that's funny
Yeah Get Fuzzy is one of those few comics that is entirely about being funny and not some agenda the artist is pushing, I only read half the funnies anymore.
I dunno, I must be missing something here. I don't find it a bit funny
Does anyone else find this strip vaguely derivative of Bloom County by Berke Breathed? Remember Opus? I wonder if the author would own up to being influenced by Breathed?
Opus ROX!Penguin Lust!Set Sail on the Starship EnterPoop!or whatever it was called.Aloha mai Nai`a, who has a "Billing and the Boingers Bootleg" flimsy...Does it show?
it may be influenced by bloom county, but i find it to be much less political and (imo) the characters are better developed.
I almost see it as a modern Garfield myself.
satchel and odie are pretty different, though. doncha think? satchel is such a sweet heart. odie was just... there.
Just better developed characters, that's all.
I love this comic strip. I have cats and dogs and it is soooo right on! Luckily only one of my cats is a bit like Buckey. Unfortunately, I sometimes think my dog is actually dumber than Satchel. But, hey she can't help it, she's a dog! My oldest and youngest cats are sweethearts, but my son's cat either ignores me, snubs me, or recently she sometimes tries to be sort of nice to get things (like some fried chicken). Karen L.
Comic strips and comic books have always been very "meh" to me. I require, uhm, more interaction, I guess. Some of my friends love them tho. I dont get it =p
Like I posted earlier I don't get it either..maybe I am missing something here and no it's not a brain rofl
dude, my ENTJ girls LOVE LOVE LOVE get fuzzy. they also love calvin and hobbes. they can't get enough of the stuff. when i want them to read, all i have to do is pull it one of the books full of one or the other of these comics. in fact, the girls can say "the pledge of allegiance to the tuna" by heart. i should record it and post it here.
lol I used to know The Simpsons "pledge of allegiance" :P"One nacho, under pants..."
oh shoot. you know what i mean.they're F to the core. dang, their F is killing me. anna makes me utterly miserable at brownies because i'm interacting with other kids. she's ridiculously jealous. it's crushing me. F. the girl is an F. the other girl is an F. i suppose the T was a freudian slip. when they're teenagers, their F's are going to collide horridly with my T and there are going to be explosions visible within a 50 mile radius.
And smother you in love. It's going to be a Logical and Ethical Sammich of <3 (and chaos *cough*)
yeah, when i told her (after she drove me nuts in brownies) that i just wanted to go home and drink a beer, she said, "yeah mom. i'll get it for you. and i'll have naomi rub your feet."
here's the pledge.
I like that my girls are Fs. It's kind of interesting watching my F girls interact with T gal. :o)
It's not interesting at all. My mom is an F and I get so aggravated with her sometimes, I can't stand it. The weird thing about it is that she never seems to get aggravated with me...though I know I hurt her feelings sometimes.
i think rob likes that they're Fs because he is. ;-) i had all sorts of problems with them yesterday, though. anna had something wrong with her shoe so she asked that we stop. so we finished crossing the street and i stopped. i thought she was done and naomi and nathan were dragging me on so we walked another 15 feet before i stopped and turned around to see that anna wasn't coming yet. she was FURIOUS!!!!! that i would go even one step without her (let alone, heaven forbid, 15). we ended up having a long talk about it before school, even though the late bell had already rung. she HATES that i'm a brownie leader and actually have interactions with other girls, especially younger girls. (i don't know why that bothers them more than me interacting with older girls, but it does.) she often storms off to a corner and refuses to participate in brownies. *sigh*nathan, my T, really likes when i'm a helper in his class or a leader of something he's involved with. he doesn't care that i spend time helping other kids. he's just glad that i'm there. good old nathan.
That's odd. Jake's an F and he loves it when I help out with his class...he actually signs me up for things so I can help out. I think Catey is an F too (though she is more borderline F/T than Jake) and she wants me to help out with her activities, but runs hot and cold while I'm actually there...though I think that's more to her being a teenager than anything else, since she used to love me helping out. *shrug*
EF's are socially competitive. IF's are socially territorial.
haha how cute! Poor Meg :P
What is all this F and T stuff you are all on about? Sounds like you are swearing to me. If my daughter had've ever done that to me, go sulk in the corner, I would have grounded her for a month.
Hmmm. My daughter is an EF, but my son is an IF. I can see Catey being socially competitive, but Jake doesn't seem socially territorial at all...
so are you saying that anna might be an "I"? i've often suspected that she's rather on the border as far as I and E (which is in keeping with her dad who tests as an E but has some fairly strong I tendencies.)barbs, we're talking about Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) (click here to take a test. look under the section entitled "Jung Tests I-E S-N F-T J-P** ").
So encourage the EF's and spank the IF's :P
hehe you all need to take tests to work out what personalities you have? And you get your kids to take them too?
Well actually the MBTI test is pretty accurate and can shine some light on why you have the failures or successes that you do. For instance, as an INTJ I knew that the reason people found me arrogant was because they weren't smart enough to understand :PIf you really study it, you don't need someone to take a test to know what personality they are.
Tests are unreliable.
my kids are too young to do something like that with any accuracy. but nathan's personality is Very clear. (when you open the Nurture by Nature book to ISTJ, you'd almost think they had been following nathan around for several years before writing the chapter. it described him so clearly it was almost scary. i really wish i had had the book when he was having so much trouble in preschool. at least i wouldn't have felt like a horrible no good mother. i would have been able to read the book and say, "oh, this is normal for this type of kid and here's what we need to do about it."if i had to guess, barbs, i'd say you were an ISFJ. i'm not entirely sure on the I vs. E for you, though. i think it's harder to tell that online. i probably act a lot more Extroverted online than i really am. (as an introvert, i'm utterly happy to spend my entire day inside all by my little lonesome.) :-)
hehe I am happy to be by myself. I could easily stay home and never go anywhere if I didn't have to. But I do like to travel and I like seeing new places. So what does that make me rofl a nutcase
Definitely not an ExFx or ExTp. It rules out, unless youre a rare exception, about 6 of the 16 types.
Type never changes throughout one's life. The ego (which can be definted by the primary and auxillary functions, and, also, what we want the world to be) is the same throughout a lifespan. The only problem, though, is that a lot of the funtions are hard to differentiate in someone until theyre 18+, which is when people begin to leave egocentrism (the developmental stage...although I wonder sometimes!). On the flip side, people often condition over their own preferences in the name of survival. It's a tricky game, though, because this causes stress in oneself. It's like tug-of-war really, so it's a bit more apparent to oneself.So, I dont think it's all that infallible to try before theyre adults -- especially if one is a good parent and know's their kid(s) well.Which you are =P
Can I go back to being less academic now? =/
btw, I'd say ISFj (or INFj) is a good educated guess. It is more likely that she is from the Gamma or Delta quadras. However, ISTj could be possible, too. Ive noticed that sometimes that female ISTj's appear very Fe online and when meeting new people.
It's not apparent until things become heated. They like their space, though.As a general rule. introverts are more territorial (keep in mind that the second half of one's ego is flip of this) over what they consider to be their information. This is because the definition of introversion includes subjectiveness of their primary nature-- anything they perceive or judge within is obviously going through a subjective experience.Extroverts, on the other hand, want to share everything their ego has to offer.... which leads to competition, obviously.I remember Meg asking me over 2 years ago where jealousy came from (due to her girls). After all of this time I dont think it can be attributed to type but rather to competition for preferred information. I wonder if being a twin is a double-edged sword? On one hand, having a buddy is helpful. On the other hand, you have to share everything (including Meg!). This one girl from a type psychology forum is a twin, but her and her brother are different types, and reports a far different relation to him that what I see between Meg's twins. She is an ESTp and he is an INTj. They rarely talk or share friends. I think this is all intriguing because academic studies have proven that even identical twins can have seperate inate personalities. And knowing that they do not change throughout lifespan, I can only guess that personality is formed during the 9 months prior to birth. I thought this fact was interesting because one of the theories on homosexuality infers the same time frame of homosexual development due to hormone bombarment much like left-handedness (not a set in stone theory, though).
but anna doesn't have a problem when it comes to sharing me with naomi. in fact, she sees that as only right and proper. in many ways the girls see each other as extensions of themselves. (one of them called the other ugly. so the offended party came and complained to me about it and when i pointed out that they were Identical twins, looking almost exactly alike, she was thrilled to run back and tell the offender that calling her ugly was calling herself ugly. they both ended up giggling like crazy then.)anna also, for the most part, doesn't mind if i help an older girl at brownies. but there is one girl in particular who is younger and is very comfortable coming up to me and holding my hand or saying hi to me in the hall or doing other things that the girls associate with signs of possession and ooooooo do they get upset (anna in particular). if i go in as a mom helper during class and another kid has the audacity to think they can sit on my lap, look out. anna's going to go ballistic.
Leave me a note!
