How do I stop from feeling like I am a fraud (because I have a lot of flaws) when people tell me I'm physically beautiful? This insecurity in my looks/my reaction to compliments is affecting my life in a lot of ways. I'd appreciate any and all advice on how to deal with this! [more inside]

I'm writing an Asian cookbook. The recipes are mostly finished, and I'm currently testing and narrowing them down to the truly tasty. It'll be self published for friends and family, so won't need to look truly fancy. But I'm stuck for inspiration as to design and layout. So I'm looking for examples of simple but beautiful cookbook page layouts. Preferably viewable online. Suggestions?

I love Ferry Halim's Orisinal
games. What are some games for the iPhone with a similar beautiful aesthetic and simple gameplay? Bonus points, as always, for free or cheap.

I am used to Mac OS X and I really like the default fonts, the way anti aliasing works and the default theme as well.
Now I am working with Ubuntu 8.10 on other machine, but it kind of frustrates me visually.
I'd like to ask general tips on how could I make Ubuntu more visually appealing. I have found a couple of links
about how to make fonts smoother.
That improved a bit, bit still not there yet. I'd like to hear from you what font you use, themes, etc...
So, what are the tricks you use to make your Ubuntu install beautiful?
