WHO IS YOUR HERO?

Dear Gerri Global Member,

Niaje,

As seeing it was Mashujaa Day (Heroes Day) yesterday in our dear country Kenya, I thought I’d start my first post in this blog with that title.

I wonder how they come up with these days. My hero yesterday morning when I woke up was the guy who could have unlocked my hangover. That was my hero! Because you see, I have this tendency of making any holiday/weekend/no-working- day an excuse to-drink-day!

For those of you who might not be "good" drinkers, After a night of dirty dancing and excessive drinking - which happens usually, we mostly wake up with a heavy hangover. To do away with this hangover the only solution is having a tot or three or a beer or 4 to eliminate it..

Envy

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

Envy~ jealousy, desire.

Like greed and lust, Envy (Latin, invidia) is characterized by an insatiable desire. Envy is similar to jealousy in that they both feel discontent towards someone's traits, status, abilities, or rewards. The difference is the envious also desire the entity and covet it. Aquinas described envy as "sorrow for another's good".

So..envy. The second post from the seven deadly sins, and yes another joint with dear Mirror :)

What am I envious of? Not jealous - but envious. In case it wasn't clear, the difference between jealousy and envy is that when you're jealous you're merely discontent but when you are envious you want whatever it is that you envy. For example: I'm jealous of him. I envy his _____. Not exactly the most clear distinction and not particularly one that I paid any attention to either.
