So Long, Farewell....turn your Brains back on!

Hand me a tissue...

Well, I guess it's time to say goodbye. It has been fun writing. And thank you Julie Readers for staying tuned in and putting up with me.

I don't know how so many of you do it every day and so well. I have visited several different blogs during my 'sitting'. And I am humbled by the honest, graceful and relevant writing I found.

I also, now, have felt (am feeling) the pains of writer's block. But, I guess that's okay, since I was billed as having less to say. :)

Hopefully, you all will tell Julie I did a good job and she will have me back (If not, there's always the rogue route).

Since my brain is frozen, like my computer has been lately. I'm going to leave a clip of one of my most favorite movie scenes of all time. It pretty much sums up my personality. You'll see, it's not hard to tickle my funny bone.

Enjoy! (Please don't laugh but, you'll have to link to my blog because I cannot figure out how to download it here.)

xo, Flavia

ps. Today's wine: Riesling and for our treat-Belgian chocolates, of course. a whole box of them.

Writer's block or no, I hope you got enough of a blggity taste in your mouth that you will now have less to say more often (a.k.a. use your blog dagnabbit!).

It has been a joy to get to know you.

I especially loved the treats! However, next time, perhaps you should have a daily yoga pose or tummy crunch so as to diffuse the added poundage I've acquired. :)

Thanks, Flavia.

Hey! Thanks guys. It has been a joy to here. Like I said I was lucky to get to jump right into a group of readers (a smart and fun one.)

Maybe I will try to write some on my blog. (eeks, that gives me tummy flutterflies..)

And Emily for you- 4 full sun salutes and 3 sets of 100's. for all of our sakes, we'll make sure we only have virtual treats from now on. :)

xoxo, Lesley

Flavia, I just wanted to let you know that I have read and really enjoyed all of your posts. I haven't been able to comment because of a slow computer connection and some personal issues that had to be dealt with. I completely related to your post on May May, I'm amazed at your work with the CASA, and movies,well let's just say that it shows how stressed out I am that I couldn't come up with any movie quotes. We love movies and movie quotes serve as dialogue in our house.

I'm looking forward to your blog.

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
