Everybody that I work with has become an insufferable asshole over the past few weeks. What is going on here? What can I do about it? I like to think of myself as a pretty laid-back kind of guy. I try hard to be accommodating to others and to be as helpful as possible, especially at work. I’ve always gotten along well with coworkers, I’ve never been written up for anything at work (at any of my jobs, ever) and I pride myself on being able to work with difficult people in difficult situations.

Good manners signage from Australia…applicable universally. Manners are subjective. There are few remaining standards for proper behavior, as recently noted by The New York Times columnist David Brooks. One person’s rude neighbor is another’s best friend. My philosophy is basically live and let live, so I am fairly patient with people’s idiosyncrasies that could be misconstrued as bad behavior. But one thing that gets my goat is people who are just plain rude.
Called to Love (Lesson 5, 1 John)everydaytheology.wordpress.com

Read 1 John 3:11-4:6 As an introduction to this lesson, I’m including a brief commentary on our culture’s mis -understanding of love provided in the leader’s notes: “Our culture’s obsession with love primarily highlights love as a subjective experience.  It is defined as a feeling by which we are overwhelmed – a passion which consumes us.  It is essentially selfish and self-centered in its character, focusing on ‘me’ and ‘how I feel’.  It is pursued as that which will make me happy.

Huffington Post is reporting something that only makes sense in a world without the internet* – Apparently Alec Baldwin, hilarious actor, but not-so-hilarious angry MRA douchebag, is indulging the fantasy that he could possibly win an election : Playboy: Will you run for office? Baldwin: I’ll put it this way. The desire is there… I have sometimes thought I could move to New Jersey or Connecticut and run. I’d love to run against Joe Lieberman. I have no use for him. But it’s all fantasy.

Author : maureen collins As you set out to achieve a goal or objective you inevitably do so from a set of assumptions You make assumptions about whether it will be difficult to achieve, about how competent you are to do so and whether you have the resources you will need You may also make assumptions about what other people will think, whether you will have their support or about how important the goal is anyway Some assumptions are enabling; they help you on your way Others are limiting:

I heard the report Sunday on the radio, a girl six years old had been sexually assaulted in a Surrey, BC neighbourhood. She was walking with her brother who is 12 and his friend 15 when a man approached them at knife point and ordered the boys to wait as he took the girl into the woods and assaulted her. The story continues to unfold with the release of a composite drawing of the suspect. There are many children worldwide who have been victims of assault and when I open this topic up I do so in remembrance of all of them.
Lee and the Hall of Famemananation.com

“Voting shall be based upon the player’s performances, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, and contributions to the game in general.” That’s the Magic: The Gathering Hall of Fame Mantra. It’s hard to believe that our game has really gotten to a point where we’re recognizing these attributes within a person’s “game”. For a person, like myself, I don’t take this sport lightly nor do I take my position on the Hall of Fame Committee lightly.

If you’re reading this, it means you opened your eyes this morning and made a conscious decision to get up out of bed and face another day. The longer I live, the more I realize that it takes guts to do that. Yes, I know. I’m probably being a little dramatic. I started to notice something this weekend.  And it may come as a surprise to some that I’m so late to the party with this “epiphany.” You’d think I’d have caught on by now. It started with the book I was trying to finish this past weekend.

You are overweight for the most simple of reasons — because you’re eating the wrong foods, the wrong types of calories per meal, and you’re also eating meals in the wrong patterns each day. Think closely about what we’re about to tell you, since it’s going to change the way you think about dieting… Crash diets, strenuous physical exercises, lots of frustrations could very well become a rather realistic way of considering most efforts to rid belly fat.

It’s ironic how difficult people make quitting smoking out to be, especially when it can be easy. The trick to quitting smoking is all based on your mind-set. Knee Brace Tips… Another one of the commonly known (read: incorrect) facets of quitting smoking is that you have to distance yourself from your friends that smoke in order to quit. That’s a quite daft notion that, for many people, rules out quitting smoking altogether. Luckily, that’s not actually the case.
Miao Village – The Informationworldresolution.net

A day ago I thought this trip to a local minority group’s village would be something I’d do to pass the time and learn about something new. Little did I know that the experience would ring so true that I felt a need to completely detail it in it’s own article. We did this event on our second day in Fenghuang, and it would set the tone for the rest of our trip. I think it’s appropriate to begin my article with a traditional song sung by the Miao people. jin tian a ge lai kan mei yi jin lai dao dong jiu chun.

Author : maureen collins How often have you said Yes in answer to a request for help, when what you really want to say is No? How often have you found yourself in uncomfortable situations as a result of that Yes? Many people struggle to say No, and some conversations are more difficult than others: *when you feel you are expected to say Yes *when you feel you ought to say Yes *when the person really needs you to say Yes *when you have said No previously, and now feel guilty *when you do

Did this quiz from kev’s blog. Pretty cool. O.O Go try it out. Your EQ is 167 Two possibilities – you’ve either out “Dr. Phil-ed” Dr. Phil… or you’re a dirty liar. Seriously though, your whole “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” philosophy is really what defines emotional intelligence. You’re warm, open, and very optimistic. You know how to act appropriately, even if you don’t feel like it. You are a good communicator, and you have little difficulty with personal relationships – even when you’re dealing with difficult people.
