  • The School Of Practical Philosophy: Philosophy Works - Week One

    Posted on Jan 19, 2011 at 6:06 PM

    @Ben, You're probably right re. the self-esteem thing. You need to get over that. ;) @Randall and Ben, I got shot down mercilessly by a guy on a dating site for mildly stating that I thought it would be hard for a foodie like me, who loves to cook, to date a vegan like him. I would have remin... read more »

    @Ben- The quote was, "Forgiveness is giving up all hope of a better past." I think it applies as well to the self as to others. :)... read more »

  • In The Spirit Of B. Virdot - A Small Gift For A Few Families In Need

    Posted on Dec 7, 2010 at 2:45 PM

    @Mary Jo, Not JUST Christmas; we gave animals to family/friends for Hanukkah last year through heifer.org! Loosely interpreted, the spirit of Hanukkah is fighting against odds for what one believes in and for the ability to celebrate fully - definitely in line with giving at this time of year! NO... read more »

    @Ben, Would you like any more $$/gift cards added to the pool or would you rather we did our own thing vis a vis donating? I would love to help out, but I'm happy to donate on my own if you'd rather keep this to the size it is now. :) Happy Hanukkah!... read more »

    Just awesome. As for finding families, you might try contacting a local homeless shelter. I imagine families staying there might be short on gifts. Btw, the good thing about Target, Walmart AND Amazon gift cards is that they could be used for gifts *or* groceries. :)... read more »

    @Ben, You already got me hooked on L&O:SVU; isn't that enough? ;-) But I will see if I can find Amber's episode on Hulu - and I'll tell her you thought she did a good job! Okay... back to philosophy/psych *cracks knuckles* One very important point about Maslow's theory/hierarchy which I thin... read more »

    @Ben, Apparently Amber played a character named Corinne last night? I am a bad friend: i didn't record it (and as you may recall, I'm not a regular viewer :-). Was she good?... read more »

    @Ben, I'll reply to the philosophical aspects of both posts when I get up for real (and after I hit the gym), but what the heck were *you* doing up so late?!? Also, did you see my friend Amber on Grey's? :-)... read more »

    @Ben - *laugh* You ARE a philosophy class unto yourself, you big goofball. :) I know the hierarchy of needs doesn't talk about balance explicitly (hey, who's the ed/psych major here?! ;), but I think it is implicit in the notion that if you can be knocked down from self-actualization then you hav... read more »

    @Ben, Even when you feel like you're not hitting the nail on the head, you still manage to well put into words some pretty heady concepts. :) The interesting thing about Maslow, as I recall from my long-ago learning of his ideas, was that if for some reason you had one of your needs no longer met, i... read more »

    @Ben- Dude! Mila *and* Ali Larter? It's badass ckhickapalooza!!! What's not to love?! I think this looks much better than the last one (I still think #2 was the best one), and I will definitely be seeing it. Probably alone since when I mention it to any of my other friends they just point & laugh. ;... read more »

    @Ryan, Ben - It's interesting; I *just* had a conversation with friends last night about this. They were talking about the fact that my female friend's new boyfriend was kind of taken aback when she had the whole weekend planned out for them; he said he would need some "me time" in there. She retort... read more »

    @Sandra- That is *perfect*! What you said is an absolutely brilliant synopsis of what defines a healthy relationship. I never saw myself as one of those people who would "die for love," but I have to confess that when my last serious relationship broke up over a year ago... I definitely fell apart. ... read more »

    Very good point re. external factors and people forcing us to at least consider another perspective. In fact, I'm blogging about something related to that right now; please check it out and comment when you have time! And, of course- anytime re. encouragement; that's what friends are for! :)... read more »
