I dislike using titles others have already claimed, so I google headings before I publish a post. My latest search pointed towards the Do Unto Others Project.
This post has nothing to do with the group, but I want to share a quote that was, um… quoted in the D.U.O.’s Project Philosophy page. The group suggests that people (and monkeys) should, “‘Repay kindness with kindness’, said Confucius, describing relations between individuals, ‘but evil with justice’. In other words, ‘do unto others as they do unto you’. It’s ‘an eye for an eye’ and ‘a tooth for a tooth’, plus ‘one good turn deserves another’. In actual human (and chimpanzee) behavior, it’s a familiar standard.”
So, because I like people (and monkeys are freaking hilarious), I will do unto Oma Linda, and invite the first five Wicked Darlings to comment on this post, to do unto five other darlings.
Yes, my Wicked Luvs, I’m enticing you to Pay It Forward before 2013…
The rules are simple (maybe because I stole most of the words from Olde Baggs ‘n Stuft Shirts…). This is how it goes:
I promise to give something handmade to the first five Wicked Darlings who comment on this post, and say, “I want to do unto others... with my hands!” They must, in turn, write a similar post and link it to this page. Then make something for the first five people who comment on their posts.
The rules say the gift must be made by you and the darling commenters must receive it before 2013. It can be as simple as making a friend a cup of coffee, suggests wicked lovely Oma Linda. And I agree with her.
P.S. If you choose to use your hand-making skills to do unto your lover, go ahead and withhold the pictures. I’m sure they would be seriously exciting, but Google might shut me down.
P.P.S. This blog has no connection with D.U.O. or the beliefs of the group, but the chimpanzee remark was too freaking funny not to share.
P.P.P.S. I have the shaking feeling that my blood caffeine level is way above the legal limit at the moment.
P.P.P.P.S. Stop by the Pagan Blog Project and see what else the witchy bunch is doing with this week’s Ds.

but he’s definitely giving the bloody thing to the girl.
