unfortunately, heather has surfaced on our screens in scrubs, ads for l'oreal and the short lived LAX.
unfortunately, heather forgot the most important advice: stay out of the path of runaway police motorcyles.
unfortunately, heather can't be there, but i hope some of you can be.
unfortunately, heather did not win.
unfortunately, heather's first job didn't work out.
unfortunately, heather lost the ability to transform into sasquatch.
unfortunately, heather will never go away
unfortunately, heather was playing the nice role, and let her team mate sabotage both of them
unfortunately, heather has to work as a hooker to pay for her retro fashion obsession
unfortunately, heather has had quite a struggle finding a location because all the available spaces keep getting taken before she has a chance to put in a bid.

6 is my favorite. followed by 2.

The "needs" game
The Rules:
Type in your name and the word "needs" in quotes ("[Your first name] needs”) into your favorite search engine and see what comes up. List the first 10 that actually answer the question.

"heather needs" a childhood.
"heather needs" two therapists
"heather needs" something more to be satisfied
"heather needs" to grow up
"heather needs" help
"heather needs" men now!
"heather needs" to start wearing a brassiere
"heather needs" somebody
"heather needs" a new shrink
"heather needs" a bigger cup to hide behind

mostly i'm amused with these.

this is REALLY hard.
Rank these values as far as their importance to you.
Then explain in 3-5 sentences your top five choices.

True Friendship
A Comfortable Life
An Exciting Life
Mature Love
A Sense of Accomplishment
A World at Peace
A World of Beauty
Social Recognition
Inner Harmony
Family Security
National Security

this was really hard for me....and all of these things are good things, so it seems silly to talk about the things that are most important. it makes more sense to talk about how we chose what WASN'T important. this excercise made me face that i am pretty selfish. it may be simply human nature to want things for yourself before you want them for other people, but i still feel guilty about it. on the other hand.
equality: is low on my list because it can mean so many things. if we are talking about equal respect and equal rights? i'm interested. but if we are talking about SAMENESS, i really have no interest at all, and this is what a lot of people mean when they talk about equality. i don't think women should be treated like men, or vice versa. i don't think every religion can be treated the same, although all people should have the right to practice their religion as long as it doesn't impinge on other people(no human sacrifices, for example). i think we should all be accorded the same respect....but men don't have the RIGHT to bear children just because women do...for example. i celebrate the differences between us. they are wonderful. i want respect. but i don't want sameness.
national security: this is impossible. life is not secure and i don't really want a world that is, even though insecurity is scary. if people want to bomb us they are going to. if people want to find a way to hurt us, they are going to. and there is no way to out-guess everyone. because of this, it is a waste of time imho to spend all your life worrying about it. sure, be saavy. but don't waste your life. i am against the patriot act. i am against ridiculous airport security. i am against having a threat level color broadcast that no one is brave enough to reduce. to me, this is a way of keeping the masses afraid so the government can do whatever it wants.
family security: this is low on the list because i don't really understand what it means. it is not a pair of words i would ever put together. does it mean your family loves you? does it mean your family can bail you out of jail?
does it mean you haven't been kicked out? does it mean that your family is okay? i want my family to love me. i am concerned for their safety. but life is not about never taking risks and always being safe. and that goes for them as well as me. i want them to be well..but not at the expense of not living their lives.
inner harmony: i also don't know what this means. to me this is a hippy concept for the kind of peace that comes from getting stoned. not a priority for me. nice, but not a priority.
social recognition: again. nice, but not necessary if we are already assuming i have the true friendship and the mature love listed above.
pleasure: this is harder. i like pleasure. a lot. but it isn't primarily what motivates me...which may be a bad thing. not sure. anyway it isn't as important as those other things....but it's hard to separate them because those other things give me pleasure.
