Animal Demonstrations

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Take a picture of yourself (or someone you know) reproducing one (or more!) of moods in the AOL Journals Mood Menu.

Scalzi reminds up that the options are: Happy, Mischievous, Worried, Silly, Surprised, Flirtatious, Silly, Ecstatic, Frustrated, Loopy, Embarrassed, Hopeful, Anxious, Sad, Quiet and Chillin'.

I actually got home at midnight, but silly, me, I've just spent over 2 1/2 hours editing today's 146 photos. Now I've got to rush this entry and get to bed, so I can get up and work in the morning!

Okay: selected moods demonstrated by my new friends in New Mexico, the band of Pronghorns grazing on the plateau that contains the many parabolic dish antennae of the Very Large Array radio telescope:

Flirtatious (or possibly Surprised)

Anxious (to get away from me, anyway)

Chillin' (I hate that term)

And here are a few more, demonstrated by my bunny (Eastern Cottontail) friends at the Very Large Array:

(Vewy Vewy) Quiet

Worried (about the woman with the camera)

To be honest, I've always felt AOL's range of moods is rather limited. Where is Curious? Creative? Tired? Reluctant? Angry? The LiveJournal list is much more extensive, and I use it, when I get around to posting there at all. The AOL one, which I abandoned after about a month, is in serious need of an upgrade. Perhaps it will get one.

Of couse, Blogspot doesn't even have a formal mood system. I don't miss it.

Tomorrow night I do my just post-midnight Round Robin entry for the topic "Holy." As you may have guessed, my photos for it will be from the New Mexico trip. After that, I'm sure I'll have several more entries until I get caught up with it all, featuring

  • a ghost town and abandoned mine
  • a real wild west town with real marshalls
  • a site too big to see (but I tried)
  • a grand river

...and whatever else I happen to think of as I go through my pictures. Good night!

your animal photos showing "moods" were cute. I never use the moods in my blog for the reasons you mention: I don't like "chillin" or loopy, and there aren't many that I would say reflect my mood. Your suggestions for curious and creative are good. I'd add doubtful, empty, burned-out, and thoughtful or reflective. I'm about to start chapter 3. Thanks for sending it to me. Bea
