Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Is the glass half full or half empty?

My glass is half full of cynicism.

I guess that makes me an optimist.


note: people who don’t have glasses … need glasses … or something like that.

double note: I’d rather go to an optimetrist than a pestometrist when looking for/looking at glasses.

triple note: people with commuter mugs must be in the middle somewhere.

quadruple note: my glass is half full … but it’s a pretty big glass, so it doesn’t really matter.

quintuple note: I guess this one kind of goes with this other one.


notes to myself #140

You always look on the bright side … of the sun.

  1. By your definition, I too am an optimist. I carry my cynicism in a bucket. What does THAT mean?

  2. The glass is neither half full nor half empty, it is just too big.

  3. I think my name says it all!

  4. I hovered my cursor over the picture. Glad I did. Needed a laugh.

  5. Time to get a better tasting beer! 🙂 lol

  6. Optimists are disappointed more often. I’m a pessimist because I like to be pleasantly surprised more often.

  7. My glass is empty, and needs to be washed, but I want it to be cleaned and filled with tea NOW, what does that make me 😦

  8. Thanks for all the comments!

    Doraz: definitely!

    Razzbuffnik: optimists will probably see the silver lining in disappointment. Me? … I just drag my ass and moan sporadically.

  11. Man, I don’t have a glass to fill up. But I believe someday soon I will! For now, I just sing that ANNIE song, “The sun will come out tomorrow”
