Brain Weasel Stomping Day
As cjdoyle first proposed, today is brain weasel stomping day! Many thanks to sarahmichigan for being the first to stomp some of my brain weasels!

Spread the word:
Wow - what is it in the air lately? Post after filtered post about how everyone is feeling alone, disconnected, unwanted. It's not like this is one or two people - it's like a rash all over my friends list the past few days. Male, female, betwixt, undecided, unconcerned...it seems to be an equal opportunity Brain Weasel Invasion.

Clearly, something needs to be done.

I think we need to have a Brain Weasel Stomping Day.

The problem, as I've noted before, is "it's easier to see the Weasels when they're eating someone else's brain."

So. This is my call to my friends list, and to your friends list, and beyond. This Friday, make an effort to squish someone's Brain Weasel.

Have a crush on someone? Post a flirty comment in their journal. Admire someone's skills? Post a comment about it. Just think a person is nifty? This Friday is the time to tell them.

Doesn't matter if the post you're commenting to doesn't have much to do with your comment. Just post those good thoughts. Trust me. People will appreciate it.

Do this for everyone - not just those you suspect are feeling down (After all, you might not be on their Brain Weasel filter). Take a few minutes and help launch people into the weekend with a smile.

And...who knows? Maybe sharing how others make you happy will make you a bit more cheerful in return.

It's worth a try.

Apropos of nothing... have I mentioned that I think you're nifty? Because I do. Just sayin'.

Thanks!

I am often croggled by the niftiness of the people I've managed to end up with around me. Thank you for being one of them.

I really admire your intelligence and your ability to connect to so many people on a bunch of different levels. I don't get to see you much, but when I do it is always a good thing. :)

One of the things that is nice about moving into the duplex over by Veteran's Park will be that visiting you will be within walking distance. (:

Don't feel I know you particularly well at this point, but hopefully my life is about to settle out enough to change that.

Love the icon. And you've always been an awesome hostess, spending time over your place has always been enjoying.

Aw, nifty's already been used... let's go for KEEN! I like hearing about you trying new things this year, it's a good reminder that there's always something more to do. :-)

But quit abusing the poor weasels!

heh. I told Skennedy I stomped his brain weasels lovingly and with concern about their misguided ways...


It was good to see you too! I'll have to do more of that stopping by sort of thing. :)

So does that mean you want to come over soon and help with house or yard projects? ;)


(just kidding)


(no, really, do you want to? Maybe next weekend?)
