Accentuate the positive…

This is the "Positive or Negative?" My Side.

But first, an observation. Vicky and I seem to be slipping into a more comfortable zone, getting used to living with each other. We really seem to be getting a feel for what the other person does and how they do it. It only took a couple of months and we're more used to each other in this new place… and now we'll be moving again! Let's hope the adjustment to the new place isn't as difficult!

Last night, we were driving out to see the new place. (I've been bugging her to see it again so we drove around and saw the park that is within walking distance of our place. It's so cool!) We're on the freeway and Vicky made some negative comment. I said, "I don't know what to say, Vic. You sure are negative at times." She said, "Ha. Look who's talking!"

Moi? Negative?

"Yes," she said. "You."

So, I figured this would be a good time to use the power of the Blog and see what you, the reader - yes, you - think. Add a comment to this entry (no, not that running commentary on the side you guys have become so fond of!) and cast your vote. On a scale of 1-5, tell me how positive or negative you think I am. A vote of 1 would be "Bergman"*, while a 5 would mean something like "a right, jolly elf".

* Mind you, Bergman wasn't really that negative at all. Many of his films are very life-affirming… so there!

Okay since it seems that this started with my commment, I will be the first to "vote"....I give Ken a 2-2.5, what can I say I hear every negative and positive thing he has to say on a daily basis...but I still love him!

I'd say 79,008.... and, no, this isn't Ken writing this... it's, um, Selma Hayak - yeah, that's the ticket!

This BLOG is filled with negativity. It's why I read it sometimes, it's so entertaining. Just from what I read here, I vote 2.

-1/2...does that count?

It seems that our Ken does not see the negativity in what he says, does, or writes...should he?

To know yourself is the ultimate form of aggression.
