Summer of Compliments

After a short deliberation, I have decided to follow along with the Complimenting Commenter's Summer of Compliments.

The goal is to compliment 100 people over the summer and that means I'll be giving out sincere commendations to my Jr. Intergalactic Gladiators for the next few months. I'll also be giving them out to some of my real-life friends and associates along the way.

Of course you may join in if you like, but you certainly don't have to if you don't want. I just feel that I want to add something positive to this world. I think that we could use it.

So to keep track of my compliments, I will be updating this entry frequently; I may even link it on my sidebar. Below are the people who have received complements from me:

OK, here's a little something extra. There is a new Spider-Man movie coming out and I found a great teaser trailer for it online. I hope you enjoy it. Click here.

Also, here is a film of one of my Intergalactic Gladiator fight sequences. Yeah, I do take on a lot of guys and I guess I go over the top a little, but you know, I was saving the damsel in distress or something. Click here.

Lvoe your complementing idea. 100 people is maybe too many because you will end up complementing people you don't really know. But, that's your call. However, if you make it,say, 20 people, and then Mime it forward, what great summer fun!

Careful what you wish for, there Wedge.

It is a great idea to follow the summer of compliments. I try to be complimentary all the time, especially when it is merited.
Michele sent me!

A Army Of (Cl)One said...

OMG. You kicked @ss on those ... uhhh ... those ... what the heck were those things? Anyhow, you did some serious Galdiatorating on them. It looked like the work of a young James T. Kirk.

and that is not a compliment, just a statement of fact.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Yeah, except when I totally layed the proverbial smackdown, I didn't rip my short or nothin'

Yo Tambien Te Mando Besos said...

Hi Jon!
I already said I love your name... but I do!!! Could I be a Jr. Intergalactic Gladiator? Or even cadet?

Here from Michele's today... but will haunt back!!!

Professor Xavier said...

Is this like one of those Karma things?

Professor Xavier said...

For some reason I couldn't get Queens - Flash, He'll Save Everyone of Us - out of my head while your heroic video was playing.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Can a starship Captain be a Junior Gadiator?

Professor Xavier said...

The answer is yes. Here's the proof -

If I knew how to hotlink in the comments, I would have.
