F.U. Friday (a companion to Thank-You Thursday)

Most of the time, I try not to be judgmental, even though it’s pretty hard for a smart-alecky gal like me.  I’ve been called out more than once for my “cruel sense of humor,” and it’s true that I like to tease and poke fun.

However, when it comes to sharing these judgments in the public sphere, I err on the side of caution.  I don’t publically tool on reality show stars for their vapidity or fat asses.  And you won’t see me posting caustic remarks on deadlinehollywood.com when un-talented people find success.

But that doesn’t mean I’m not bitch-slapping them in my head.  Because I am.  Even though I attempt to rise above it.  Even though I know that by judging others I am ultimately judging myself.   Sigh.

So in an attempt to be less judgmental and more like Deepak Chopra — AND YET — to still allow for the inherent snarkiness that flows deeply through the very core of my being, I have come up with a plan.  Like the ex-smoker who still delights in that once-a-year cigarette, I’ve pared my list of Things to Mock down to two key topics, which I hereby allow myself to judge publically and without restraint.

They are as follows:

  • The state of Ohio
  • Republicans
