Deep in the Hundred Acre Woods

I've been in a real philosophical mood lately. Being a new Grandma has naturally turned my mind to deep thoughts. And when I have deep thoughts, I mean Pooh thoughts. ("Think think think") The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh contains all of the really important truths about life. Each character embodies an example of a real non-animated person. I mean, think about it.

Christopher Robin--A caring boy who's protective of his friends and joins them on their adventures or helps bail them out when they're in trouble.
Pooh--He accepts all as equally important in his life, a true friend. Very creative in problem solving ("I'm just a little black rain cloud...") He is, however, very focused on his physical needs. ("I'm so rumbly in my tumbly")
Piglet--A true worrier. (Kind of reminds me of Mark's mom) unselfish and lacking in confidence.
Rabbit--Just the opposite--self centered, OCD, the neighborhood busy-body.
Eeyore--Gloomy old Eeyore.
Owl--The know-it-all who doesn't really know it all, but loves to talk.
Kanga--Probably the most normal character--just a good and protective mom.
Roo--The typical energetic kid who likes adventure.
and then there's....
Tigger (T-I-Double grrrr- R)--"Bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy fun fun fun fun fun"--just out to have fun and find joy in life.

Who are you most like?


  1. Hmm, that's a good question. You know, I think I'm a mix of several of them.
    I love that "little black raincloud" episode. One of my favorites. Joey loves Pooh and T-I-double Guh-err too. :)

  2. You know, it's sad to say, but i'm probably most like rabbit and owl. Someday I'd like to be like Christopher Robin and Kanga though...good mix I think.

  3. Of course I'm the most normal of the group. Just ask Joe.

  4. Man, I just tried really hard to comment, and then it wouldn't show the word verification word and went blank. So, if two comments show up here, sorry.

    Anyway, did your Pooh thoughts mean that you are most like Pooh?

    I guess I'm a mix. I know who I don't want to be, and who I want to be. Piglet stood out for me, but the unselfish part isn't really who I am.

  5. I'm not sure who I'm most like, but my favourite was always Eeyore :) He made me laugh :)

    PS. So excited about your new blog!

  6. I am sooooo glad that you've started your own blog!

    I'd think to think that I'm like Kanga, but am probably more of a mixture of Owl and Piglet with a little Eeyore thrown in for some rainy days. :)

  7. Reuben would say I am Kanga.
    Justin would say I am Piglet.
    I would say I'm Pooh...the bear...not the other kind of pooh.
