Friday's Feast

Whose intelligence do you find intimidating?
My mother-in-law's, she's perfectly cerebral (an INTJ), brilliant, and extremely well informed and educated. I truely believe that the most indulgent things she's ever done in her life is have a second cookie, once. Plus, she's my mother-in-law; so there's, like, no pressure. That said, I truely like her, respect her, and enjoy her company.

Name something you've done that surprised yourself.
Yesterday, I threw a mini hissy-fit at work, extremely out of character and really out of place, but soon forgotten. I think I just was not very happy to go back after my time off.

List 3 people whom you have only "met" online, but consider good friends.
I hate picking people. I was always the last person picked in gym class and I can't stand leaving anybody out. Generally, I need to know somebody for quite a while before I call them "good friends" and frankly I haven't been blogging long enough to get to know anybody that well, and have not used the my computer in a social manner before this. So right now I have many developing friendships "on-line." Among them are Sue, Kristina and Pei Yun, but I am lucky enough to have many more developing friendships right now the I've had in a very long time.

Main Course
Where is the dirtiest place you've ever been?
Kelly's Saloon in Small Town, NY. If you've been there you'd understand and if you haven't well let's just say it's an old dumpy bar in a college town run by a bunch of drunks that has never ever been cleaned. Really.

What is the best example of "perfection" that you can think of?
A newborn.

A newborn is indeed the most perfect thing I've ever seen as well. To me, babies and toddlers in general are. I fondly remember lying in bed, " talking " with my toddlers, and just taking in their beauty and sweetness.

Second in line are flowers. I just have to stop, look, touch, and smell as many as possible!

Aw, thank you - what a lovely surprise to be mentioned. I had never thought of blogging as a way to make new online friends before but am really enjoying it for that reason as well as the general need to write.

I've done online socialising for about 12 years now, mostly on email lists such as those at yahoogroups. There are groups for every subject under the sun; I mostly belong to groups for homeschoolers, or with interest in temperament and type (there's an INFJ list I joined recently). Sometimes I think it's a bit sad that most of my friends are people I've never met! I agree with you though that it's hard to consider people *good* friends for quite some time after 'meeting', whether online or for real.

Well, I did do a little bit of the personality group stuff a while back, but by the time I figured out that I'm an INFJ I no longer had any interest in them. I found them to be just a lot of noise passed back and forth without any real connections. One thing I really like about blogging is I am showing the world part of myself, but I'm not in their face and nor or they in mine.
