Moi?

Elbot said...

I want a self too!

Joel said...

Self: Me. The Time Person of the Year!

Omnipotent Poobah said...

self -
1. The center of the universe for one, the tiny ice-shrouded planet at the end of the solar system for others.

2. A person able to exist in more than one dimension simultaneously.

SELF, n. The center of that universe whose name is "I". (Tip of the propeller beanie to the Poobah.) SELFLESS: suffering from amnesia.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

How does one define something that has no beginning and no end?
See me after class.

Quilly said...

I don't think the self gets more absorbed than this.

~Mo'a~ said...

Fault, felon, sanity, symbol, humility, self....great theme.

Self: In my humble opinion one must add politicians to your list...what do you think.

Self: However, we all know who the most important person in the universe is.... ;^)....yes, self.

Doug said...

Sar, maybe.

Elbot, that's funny but you have one if any of us do.

Congratulations on that, Joel, if I hadn't said so.

Poobah, when did you get omniscient?

Haha, Amoeba, or undercover.

Sure, TLP. On the roof?

I remember that one, Quilly. I wonder if he still feels that way.

Personally, Mo'a, I give him a B. Maybe B+. Is it true an artist makes herself with every cut and brush?

al said...

Self: The hardest to see clearly of all the parts of one's body.

mireille said...

self: illusory construct that gets you to/through life. xoxo

Tom & Icy said...

Only if others could see me as I see myself.

pia said...

I have a rep for having the most self absorbed blog in the universe

It's true. I am

Jenna Howard said...

Self: My, Myself & I because, really, it's all about me.

Self: who you are when you are who you are.

"I yam what I yam and I yam what I yam that I yam...
Top to me bottom and me bottom to me top,
That's the way it is 'til the day that I drop, what am I?
I yam what I yam." ~ Popeye

The Boy from S.A.C.A.D.A. said...

How much is that puppy on the self up their?

G said...

Self: Is this an exercise in self-actualization? Because I'm hard pressed to come up with a definition.

Miz BoheMia said...

Self... your worst enemy, your best friend, depending on which way the wind blows... but then you might be dabbling with sadism or narcissism, take your pick. *sigh* What do I know other than this is turning out to be quite kinky! WOOH!

Sar said...

Maybe...by which you mean porquois pas, right Doug?

tsduff said...

It is all in the eye of the beholder... (self)

Mutha said...

al and puppy are too good for me. Me and my self are outta here.

Minka said...

self: something extraordinary hidden by so many masks of daily survival, that at the end of the day it takes a while to recover it.

Doug said...

Al, that's because it's behind you.

Mireille, that's why I'm gettin' mine a GPS.

Icy, I guess you prefer bows to pats, huh?

Pia, I hate to break it to you, but not even close.

Jenna, Pia and I were just talking about you! We all were.

Puppy, strong to the finach.

Boy, if you have to ask, its you.

G, have you heard of Dianetics?

Hermana, I should have known this was the word to try and bring you out. Great definition, too.

Sar, why not?

Terry, I think you just called me beautiful.

Mutha, can't one stay?

Minka, I think that's generally a fine definition but I somehow doubt it applies to your highness.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Self-sufficient is good. Self-important is not. Is anyone self-aware?

Jamie Dawn said...

Self spelled backwards is Fles.

tsduff said...

Everything is beeeauuuuutiful... in it's own way... (sung in my best Ray Stevens voice)

Mistress Anna said...

Ish.

SquareGirl said...

"Here!"

"Here!"

"And me too! I'm here!"

Well, I guess some of ourselves are accounted for today.

Doug said...

TLP, who, me?

Jamie Dawn, no wonder the word makes me scratch.

Terry, now let's hear you do Mississippi Squirrel Revival.

Not you, Mistress.

Square, that's a start.

Self: The number reader of one's blog.

actonbell said...

Putting my "self" on the shelf, and going to work...

32 bottles of beer on the wall, 32 bottles of beer...

goldennib said...

The point of view of most drivers that requires me to be ever vigilant so their self does not end up in my front seat.

Indeterminacy said...

Arrgh - I left a word out:
Self is the number _one_ reader of one's blog. (It's good to read one's own comments too)

Doug said...

You too, huh, ALice?

And the only follower of it's readership, Indie?

Actonbell, may you be promptly taken down and passed around. Wait, that sounds wrong.

Goldennib, those are pedestrians.

Indie, I supplied the "one" subconsciously.

Cheesemeister said...

Self: the biggest pain in the ass that I know.
