Break me down into little visual categories

I'm back in town and haven't had Internet access since last Friday, which was surprisingly fine (although I'm sure it will hit me once I start surfing and see how much I missed).

I realize I've had the same post (oh! the horrors!) up boring you all for days and days.

So, considering that, then admitting I've only got a bunch of uncompleted drafts and nothing at all final, but wanting something fresh and new, I give you visual DNA.

Thanks to OmegaMom who tuned me into this.

Also...I got some really interesting comments about the justice and forgiveness question Mary gave me in the interview.

Would anybody be interested in selecting a specific day or week and posting in a roudtable about justice, forgiveness, how they work together, which is more essential, etc?

Let me know!

P.S. If I owe you a reply here or via email I will be in touch soon, I promise. :)

Hmm ... you might could perhaps possibly entice me to discuss justice and forgiveness. Maybe.

I'm very decisive. I think it's my best quality, really. How about you?

My best quality is humility. I really pride myself on it.

Forgiveness and justice, eh? Well, that should be an interesting topic!

I've been busy and am just now catching up on my blog reading, so you didn't bore me at all! :) Of course, KayTar has checking your blog every night for a new post...she read it once and she keeps coming back. *lol*

I did this a couple of weeks ago and I didn't agree with my description at all. I need to try again. I'm sure I answered the questions wrong! ;)

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

In defense of vanity...I think

Do you have one of those issues where you argue with yourself? Where you just aren't sure what you actually think because there are so many messages and opinions on the topic around you? I have more than one like this. However, there is one topic that has been struggling to the top of my mind recently: vanity and perceived vanity. Can vanity be a good thing? Vanity has historically been truly reviled. Vanity is number seven of the Seven Deadly Sins. It's the doppleganger of number seven on the Seven Holy Virtues list: humility. There are many moralistic tales of how vanity makes you evil and brings about a spectacular downfall. Consider the lady who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Google Borgia+vanity and find plenty. The Brothers Grimm and Disney got in on the act too. The Disney message seems to be: the truly beautiful don't need to be vain. They are just naturally eye-catchingly gorgeous. And they are all gorgeous. Show me the Reubenesque Pr

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo
