Day 2595: Attempts to be super

My attempts to be super at blogging this morning resulted in my finding this headline:

Moon attempts to be ‘super’ on Saturday night, settles for mediocrity

I think this is a super example of anthropomorphism (ascribing human characteristics to  non-human objects).

It might also be a super example of projection.   In attempts to be super in psychotherapy, we notice that when people see characteristics in others, that’s often a reflection of themselves.  Hence my super response to compliments: “It takes one to know one.”

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to suggest that perhaps the writer of that headline attempted to be super and settled for mediocrity.

Let’s see if there are any attempts to be super in today’s photos.

Harley and Oscar sometimes attempt to be super tolerant of each other.

Here‘s super Stevie Wonder with “Superwoman.”

I’m looking forward to your super comments, below.

Here’s today’s attempt to show my super gratitude for YOU:

  1. I think you are right about that headline writer, Ann. The moon sits there and lets things happen!

  2. I like seeing Oscar and Harley together. That’s a super photo.

    Some bonded cats love to hang out with each other and even snuggle up together, I’ve heard, but I’ve never owned cats who did. We adopted two cats together many years ago and were told they were inseparable. But they rarely even stayed in the same room together all the years that we had them and occasionally would snarl at each other. I think it would be fun to have two cats who adored each other but right now I’m happy with my single, elderly cat who we thought might be too old to adjust to life in a family but who follows me everywhere.

    Aaron’s blurb for your Fringe show was also super!

  3. Is it weird that I alway think the Moon is a super satellite because it makes life on this planet possible? And Truman, Buddy, Oscar, Harley, and all pets are super.

  4. Good Saturday Morning Ann. A delightful post as always. Thank you. All my best to you.

  5. Remember supertramp? I do!

  6. Someone is making a super attempt to take the smallest slice of carrot cake in the world!

  7. What a super start to my super Saturday as I get ready to fly to super Vancouver for a super celebration of my super grandson’s 2nd birthday!

    Everything is super! Though I do wonder how the ‘o’ must not feel so super to be left out of what for some reason is not ‘souper! 🙂

  8. Super post for our super moon and lovely to see Harley and Oscar again, Ann 😀

  9. I am not super, just saying
    This post is super though

  10. Carla Coco

    So, despite the imperfections of this world , there will always be super aspects of the universe which enligthen us. The moon is one of them. Have a nice evening, Ann

  11. I was at an outdoor party last night and the moon looked pretty super to me! I can’t wait to see if it really is super SUPER tonight. 🙂 I actually think it’s super even when it’s a little sliver of a thing.

  12. Your cats look like they’re totally throwing shade at the two dogs in costume. Have a super weekend!

  13. Harley and Oscar have super meetings.
