I was in the kitchen HELPING my Mommy #2. She was squeezing a lot A LOT of lemons for one of her PROJECTS. So, naturally, I was begging to try some. I mean the LEMONS smelled so divine that I KNEW I wanted some. Mommy kept scoffing at my whining saying "You THINK you want this?"
Truth was, I did and here is my reaction when I was finally victorious
It WAS yummy!!! It was one of those sweet Meyer lemons from my Auntie B's house. I got a little more off camera, BTW. It was equally yummy. Mommy did not want to give me too much, though, because lemons are very very acidic and could hurt my tummy if I ate too much.
Since I am a kinda of SOUR SUBJECT theme, I want to discuss something that has been happening in Blogville lately - CYBER-BULLYING. And this bullying was all aimed at the lovely and well-meaning Ms Amanda - Puglet's THUMBS. See, Ms Amanda started this wonderful project called the 1000Pugs project where she would devote a year of her life (well, at the time she thought it would just take time and money) to photographing 1000 Pugs and creating a book from the photos. If ANYONE knows Ms Amanda, they know she creates wonderful ART with her camera. I couldn't wait to be part of the project and anything else associated with it. My Mommy literally scraped together the money to DONATE to the Kickstarter campaign AND for the photo session. We are STILL proud supporters of the 1000Pugs Project.
Fast forward some months later and Ms Amanda has fallen behind on her schedules and her updates. The nasty comments begin. They got nastier and nastier (funny thing is MOST of these comments were coming from persons called ANONYMOUS). The project was still going on - PUGS from all over the country were still being photographed - the project, although behind in updates and delivery of proofs, was still on target. Please check out Puglet's blog for a full recap of the year.
The BULLYING went on - is STILL going on. BLOGVILLE is NO place for bullies!!! This is the most UNHAPPY thing I can think of and ALMOST makes me want to skip the Happy Thought of the Day.
BUT I WON'T GIVE IN TO BULLIES!!!
HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE DAY:
When Life hands you lemons, sweeten it up with LOVE and UNDERSTANDING.
