Another Not-So-Subtle Reminder About International Dot Day

I really don’t want to keep calling these “Fun Friday” posts.  There is absolutely no creativity in that label, and it’s starting to make me yawn.  I went to thesaurus.com to give me some help in coming up with a new name, however, and was, quite frankly, appalled at the ridiculously short supply of synonyms for fun.

I’m not blaming thesaurus.com, mind you.  It’s not their fault we have so few fun words.  So, I’m considering making up my own.  And, since I am fond of alliteration, it will need to start with the “f” sound.  I’m not opposed to starting it with a “ph.”  In fact, just for today, I think I am going to call it “Phun Phriday.”

Now that I have you concerned about my sanity, I am going to permit you to question your own brain function.  Check out this cool optical illusion originally found on “Bees and Bombs.”  At first, you might ask, “What’s the big deal?”  But notice that, when you observe the picture in totality, it appears to rotate.  But when you watch individual dots, they are merely moving back and forth – NOT ROTATING!  What’s up with that?

Maybe I should call it, “What’s Up With That Friday?”  But that’s a bit long, and not very alliterative, unfortunately…

In the meantime, before you become mesmerized by the dots, don’t forget that International Dot Day is this Sunday, September 15th!
