GO TO THE MIRROR.
(oh...chuckle--I almost hypnotized meself!)

and?

open your eyes...

Look at yourself,
and tell me, "purdy please?" --

something you like about yourself...

*ahem*

(smiling serenely)

Quit worrying about part II!

JUST DO IT. <-- NOT SPONSORED BY NIKE.

*ahem*

and..yeah, "just do it..." serenity urges...

I would honestly love to tell you but it would take many, many years to actually find something likeable staring back at me, Serenity.

Sorry.

Imagination=nostalgia for the past, the absent; it is the liquid solution in which art develops the snapshots of reality.

Do my clothes count? My black glam muppet turtle-neck is the prettiest thing in the mirror!

Hmm... But if I hafta choose somethin' that's actually me, I'd say my eyes or hair.

impress me, or be discarded

Lori? no...clothes can't count.

(sorry, me a clotheshound too...)

so, now? since I have only ONE SERIOUS participant, I do need to have an answer--

tapping toe..and? I feel I must tell you, that you are allowed to call ONE person if you feel you need help with this answer. (forgive me folks, I've actually never seen this show!)

So...tick tick tick...tell me..."what is your answer? EYES...OR...HAIR?

Oh, well....if it's only physical [I guess I was looking at the metaphysical] then let's see, eyes, hair, teeth, nose, ears...[do I have to go past the neck?]...[I DO?]  [sheesh]...

I've come to terms with the physical parts of me...

when you get to part II, call me!  ROTF....

Oh, and I like my eyes. Very big, very blue. (OK, so I'm a bit conceited about them....) Come on guys, I wanna hear your answers too!

God bless America, my home sweet home.

Can I talk about things I hate? I feel arrogant. lol

Well.. first and foremost..I love my eyes. You know the whole "eyes are the window to the soul" thing? Well, for me it's definately true. Everything is evident there. I also like how they drift between light and dark (that would be the green/dark brown). As for the rest of my face... I have full lips and high cheek bones. (My Native American/Portugese blood really shows up in my face & hair. I'm also Irish, but no red hair. )

My body... hmm.. I'm one of those curvey girls. That's a plus.

My thighs are my favorite I think because they're soft and warm.   I don't if I'm allowed to say that here. lol But I think they're the most feminine thing.. it's nice to be reminded.

This might sound weird but my wrists and my feet.. because I can see my veins and my bones most clearly in those areas. I think it's pretty.

I AM going to say something I hate.. (I'm a rebel.. heh) ... how easilly my nails always break. They grow quickly and long, which is nice but so soon they chip and break.

oh MIKEY--GROAN...and Part II of this is to simply take the things you LIKE about yourself and learn to LOVE them...a slight shift of consciousness, that hopefully moves self-perception one step closer to self-acceptance. In logical sequence, then the things you HATE should become a simple dislike--just my little way of saying, "Give yourselves a break!"

I happen to think you are all beautiful!

What if the mirror's not clean, Mikhail?

C'mon, y've gotta love yr random bits of natural red hair, even if you don't like anything else. So there.

Hmm, an' with me.... I choose eyes over hair. My hair only changes colour when I dye it, but my eyes change colour all on their lonesome. Yay, my eyes!

Plus, in their normal state (green with yellow rings), I have the exact inverse of my kittens' eyes (which are, of course, yellow with green rings). Now how cool is that?

Oh, and about the part II thing, missy... Ain't that pushing it a bit for a lot of people?

I can love my eyes, but that's 'cause everyone I know, from co-workers to lovers, have told me how awesome they are. If the world agrees, I may as well.

Although I'm sure we could get Mike to love something about himself if we torture him long enough.



Evil plots are hatching. Hee hee...

well...I don't think so...I'm simply suggesting that we give ourselves the same consideration we would give others--I know that I tend to be harder on ME than I am on others--and it's something I have been thinking about this week. Isn't kind of arrogant of me to expect perfection out of myself? Granted, I am not suggesting a narcissism here--if there's is something about yourself that you don't like, ask yourself if it is something you can change--if it is, then change it. If not, vive' la difference! and then? "let's just get on with it..." yanno?

Well if you want to look into a "dirty" mirror.. I can give you quite a lot..

and? the things I think are beautiful about you all go beyond the physical...all of you share quick wit, intelligence and compassion--and a wonderful sense of humor! and Kamla? I LOVE MY HAIR TOO...it's thick and it will do anything I ask it to do, even in this godawful humidity! and yes, there are streaks of gray? which I used to hate--now I like to think of it as a bit of tinsel...and yep...SURE. When my hormone levels drop again in two weeks, I won't believe a word of this, but at least I KNOW it's the hormones! and damn, but I'm in a good mood...smiling. School starts tomorrow, and I can get back on a writing schedule again! and pick up my dusty guitar too (the kids cringe when I do that now)and YAY YAY YAY...TIME OUT FOR KAREN!!!!

when I read the question
I formed an answer
but Mike took it
so,
...
...
...
I like
that I had the strength
to check the
the *yes* box
instead of the other choice
strength or fear
whatever.....

*Giggles* My favorite thing is the kitten in Anvrill's mirror! Yay for kitties!

I'd have to say, if I must choose, then... my eyes. Always blue, but never the same shade.

FYI - Ron didn't edit anything out - he just wanted to add his own comments (brat)

See - even when i don't do anything "bad" (and admittedly, that's not often) i get blamed for something.
