Age: 31
Birthday: Oct. 9th
Sexual preference: Straight

Music: Yes - all kinds!! This journal in particular is my singing journal, and I only post voice posts. Which is nerve wracking, I'm always worried what people might say! :o)
Literature: Jane Austin, all kinds of classics. I love old books.
Movies: Ghostbusters, Sense and Senseability, Steel Magnolias, Dogma
Video Games: Sims2, Second Life
TV: All the CSI's, Gilmore Girls, The Medium, Numbers, all the Law and Orders. But MAN I miss Charmed!
Other interests: I'm learning to knit, I love to sing, I love my cats (I have four) and I love my kids (I have three) and I love my husband (I only have one, but he's my second. ;o)

Abortion: Personal. I have my own moral belief about abortion, but that doesn't mean I have the right to impose that belief on anyone else. And especially in situations of medical necessity, abortion should be available to a woman at the medical location of her choosing, and with her own doctor. Not strangers.
Gay marriage: I am totally, one hundred percent for it. There's very little else on earth I've been as diligently supportive of.
Capital Punishment: I can't decide, honestly.
The War in Iraq: No comment.
Suicide: It makes me sad when people feel they need to go that route, and happy when someone saves them. I always wonder what they were feeling, and what someone might have said to save them.
Reality TV: Is cute, sometimes. I do still enjoy Survivor, and Amazing Race from time to tim. but is a trend that is rapidly starting to jump the shark.
Anything else you have a strong opinion on: Consumers should be vocal. If something makes you mad, tell the company and every other consumer who will listen. If you really like something, be equally as vocal. Money (and how we spend it!) is nearly as powerful as politics in this world...you have to use it to control the super powers.

I was just looking at an older website that I'd thrown together back in 2003. I was 27 when I did it (almost 28), and I was/am shocked to see how much thinner I was back then. Wow. I need to really work on this weight issue. . .I know that true beauty's on the inside, but someone out there, please, tell me what's the best diet? I can't do that Atkin's thing, I've heard too many horror stories about it. Besides, I like my pretzels too much. I think I'm going to have to give them up for lent, it's a hopeless addiction I've got! hee hee

Hi, everyone.

I'm new to this community, just joined up a few minutes ago. My friend is a Buddhist, and I'm a Christian. The things we've talked about over the last few weeks that I've known her (we were co-workers, that's how we met!), she's told me a lot about her religion, and having formerly been Christian herself, and knowing that I myself am a Christian, it's really fascinating to see the parallels of our religions.

I don't know much about Buddhism, and everytime I hear the word "Buddha," I always think of the jolly chubby man laying on his side or sitting "Indian style" with a big smile on his face. I wasn't aware until she and I got to talking that there are different Buddhas for different things in life. She's really shown me a lot about Eastern religions and what-not, and a lot of what she's telling me about, I'm wanting to learn more, hence my joining this group.

My hope is to meet some new friends and learn as much as I can about this religion I know so little about.

Thank you. . .

I say this everytime someone dies. Just because their dead doesn't make them a good person. And when someone dies of something that they caused themselves (like, I dunno alcohol poisoning) it's their own fault. It would be different if that kid died in a car accident, or of a disease, but no, he drank himself to death. Yes, I feel bad for his family, but still, he effectively commited suicide. Yes, it's sad that he died, but he did it to himself. I just can't feel sorry for that.
