“Tiny things are always adorable”

This is a follow up to my post Cute or not (click on the image to go to the video). Geekbrief host Cali Lewis confirms that tiny things are “always” cute. OK, she uses the word “adorable,” but aren’t the two more or less synonymous?


About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.

    Adorable means worthy of admiration… though colloquially it’s close enough. And, no, they’re not. A diamond, for example: not remotely cute. Acorn? Not cute. Spiky plant spore thing? No, it’s spiky. Though some may argue. Bottlecaps, bottlecaps are small… not really cute.

      See, I don’t think so either necessarily. But a lot of people sure coo at small things and call them cute. I’m still trying to figure out why!
