completely random

Lidia and Bernie played outside at the park at lot yesterday in spite of the cold. They chatted with a girl who goes on the bus with G. The girl told them that she'd always thought that we were Russian Jews. (?!) When Lidia asked her why she'd assumed that, the girl replied that we "looked it and acted like it." Hmm.

Separately, here are a couple articles from Psychology Today I thought were very good:

Pitfalls of Perfectionism: Perfectionism may be the ultimate self-defeating behavior. It turns people into slaves of success—but keeps them focused on failure, dooming them to a lifetime of doubt and depression. It also winds up undermining achievement in the modern world.

Second Nature: Your personality isn't necessarily set in stone. With a little experimentation, the ornery and bleak can reshape their temperaments and inject pluck and passion into their lives.
