Alex J. Cavanaugh tagged me with this one…


If I were a month, I’d be September and in the process of change.

If I were a day, I’d be Monday, because it seems like I’m always working.

If I were a time of the day, I’d be early morning, ready to go!

If I were a season, I’d be fall.

If I were a planet, I’d be earth and full of life.

If I were a direction, I’d be ‘over yonder.’

If I were a drink, I’d be an energy drink!

If I were a tree, I don’t know - can anyone think of a really short tree?

If I were an animal, I’d be one of those hyperactive little dogs.

If I were a musical instrument, I’d be a bass. No, not the fish.

If I were a fruit, I’d be a pineapple.

If I were a food, I’d be creamy pasta.

If I were a celebrity, I’d be Hugh Jackman’s wife!

If I were a color, I’d be green, because it’s not easy being green.

If I were a book, I’d be Enthusiasm Makes the Difference!

If I were a song, I’d be Learning to Fly by Pink Floyd.

If I were a movie, I’d be When Harry Met Sally. (Because that’s real close!)

If I were a flower, I’d be a tiger lily.

If I were a facial expression, I’d be a big smile!

And now I tag Jai at Jai Joshi’s Tulsa Tree!


Enter "The Mist" ...

"Over yonder" is good.
Great photo!

Wow. I won? Thanks! BTW, great answers. And the photo at the end is nice too. Hope you get to 250 Followers soon!

Have a good day...:)

Will Burke said...

I'm a little confused, most of your comparisons were high-energy front-and-center, but bass (my personal favorite) is more of a pulsing undercurrent. You're a deep well, Spunky.

Helen Ginger said...

Love the photo.

And it's always fun to read the caption contest winner - so true about cats.

Thanks for the links.

Great links and photos...and thanks for the plug!

Karen Walker said...

Oh. My. God. Where is that photo of the mist taken? It's awesome.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Beautiful photo - again. I enjoyed your “if I were,” particularly your response to if you were a direction:) Now I’m off to check out the links.

I love the photo! And the caption contest. September has always been my favourite month too, as it does feel like a new beginning event though the leaves are falling.

I've missed this place and must make it here more often!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Mr Stupid, your answer was too true!

Will, I'd be a bass because it's in the background - and I'm not musically talented! Probably should've picked one of those little monkeys that claps the symbols...

The photo was taken at the aquarium in Charleston, SC. It's one of my most popular pictures. Thanks!

Arlee Bird said...

What an outstanding photo! Good luck on reaching 250. Have a great Memorial Day week-end.

Tossing It Out

Vivian Zabel said...

The photo of the mist is lovely.

I see I'm a runner-up on the caption. Thanks.

Also, thank you for highlighting my blog post about reviews.

Unknown said...

That's a great photo. I will go check out the links too.


L. Diane Wolfe said...

You are welcome, Vivian!

Hannah said...

Thanks for the links. Luckily most of them are on my blog roll but there are a couple new ones.

I absolutely love that picture.

I have a think for foggy days and take pictures often.

Have a great weekend!

Lydia Kang said...

An entertaining post, from start to finish.

Have a great weekend!

Alissa Grosso said...

A bonsai tree? No, that's too mean, but they are pretty! Fun post!

The Old Silly said...

Oh man ... wow ... what a photo! Awesome, Diane! Loved the captions, too.

JournoMich said...

Such a fun post! This must take a lot of work...And where is this photo taken? The zoo? It's gorgeous!


Donna McDine said...

Great fun post on a quiet Friday I've been waiting for all week. Great pic!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love the Kermit quote!!

And that photo? Absolutely incredible - I got an actual chill when I looked at it!

Enjoy your long weekend!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Alissa, a bonsai tree works! I'm short, I admit it.

Michele, photo was taken at the SC Aquarium.

Jemi, I'm a BIG muppets fan! And thanks, I'm really proud of that photo.

Allyn Evans said...

I have to say hello to Vivian! :)

A great week of blogs. Love Homer as The Scream. Tomorrow when I have time I'm going back over your blogs as there is a lot of good stuff here.

Thanks, Allyn!

Stephen, I know Tuesday's was really long, but once those four sent me the information, I could not edit down any of their comments. And wisely decided not to add to it!
And the Homer pic came up with a search of "scream" in Google images!
