Ok, here's my list:

1. I can have a good time and find humor in almost any situation
2. I'm a fantastic cook
3. My life's work is caring for others in their darkest hour

1. I have the attention span of a squirrel
2. I'm allergic to a LOT of foods, 2/3 of trees, and most grasses
3. My biological father, a preacher, was killed in a tragic accident before my first birthday

Um.... Nurse, maybe? Unsure

RE: Guess the Poster Game
I hope this isn't derailing, but no one really knows me well enough to even attempt a guess. Also, I thought I would get in my mental time machine and go back 28 years in the past to determine how I would assess my life when I was still solidly in the believer camp, but I was starting to question.

So here is what I would write 28 years ago as a believer:

Positive:

1. I’m in good health
2. I’m smart
3. I have a stable job

Negative:

1. I have great trepidation about my future
2. I feel alone, I don’t seem to fit in
3. I have serious questions about god, with no good answers


Here's what I would write now:

Positive:

1. I have greater clarity on the big questions of life
2. I have a good marriage
3. I have more peace about things in general

Negative:

1. Not enough money. Big Grin
2. Knowing that life is short and realizing it really will end.
3. Not enough time to do the things I enjoy.

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Chas guessed correctly on Witchy #7 Thumbsup

Contestant #8

Hey. For play your game.

Good stuff:
1. I'm a lot more chilled out than I used to be.
2. I have lotsa good friends whom I also like.
3. I'm pretty physically fit.

Bad stuff:
1. Had some shitty life events, the odd death...
2. Worried about some future stuff - future looks not *hard*, but... difficult.
3. ... Dunno. Otherwise things are OK.
