This Blog Has Been Hijacked…

Well… no, not really, I do have Patricia’s permission to take it over for the day…

This is Patricia’s IT support. Those of you who find yourselves here frequently will realize that also makes me… her daughter, aka the student who lives in San Francisco.

Mum kindly offered up her post for today so that I could ask a Huge Favor! As part of my Masters work I am conducting a survey on visual art experiences. I am seeking survey respondents…

The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete and is available over at my site www.mceown.net.

I know everyone’s schedules are busy and there is always a lot to do, but if you WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC, WITTY, AMAZING, AWESOME readers could take a moment to help me out it would be much appreciated!

And now back to your regularly scheduled programming…

    Hi – I was panicking when I saw that headline in my reader. You are so lucky living in San Francisco – it sounds awesome. I am hoping to visit there next year. And I will be happy to fill out your survey. I am expecting a visitor any minute but I’ll do it as soon as they’ve gone.

    Hi Hijacker – I was actually interested to see you wrote “Mum” rather than “Mom”. Here in Australia we use “mum” – do you use both in the US? Just curious! Now back to regular programming…

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    I was aiming for ‘attention grabbing’ hopefully I haven’t achieved ‘scare them away’ :)

    My mum’s family is Scots-Canadian so while its not the norm here its what we call her… unless we have colds. Then we call her Bob.

    Thank you so much… I went to work, came back and had all of these fantastic responses!

    The end result might be a little dry but I will happily put it up on my page at the conclusion. (Which is actually next Thursday but I had to rap things up on Saturday in order to make sure I had time to work on the write up.) So if you would like to see it feel free to check in!

    Again, Thank You All!
