I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of reading charticles and listicles detailing the best and worst of the last decade. I think it's safe to say that the last ten years just sucked. Do we really need to go over that again? I'd just as soon kick the door closed on it.
Yes, some good things happened, but we also had 9/11, a recession/depression, two wars, and my mouth melted down. I realize that last one is a tragedy for nobody but me and my bank account, but still. (Also, I'm not in any way comparing my dental dilemma to thousands of people getting horribly murdered—it's just always on my mind.) So like I said, this isn't a year-end list, but more of a disjointed bunch of things that I've been thinking about and/or reading. . . .
Because I've been such a cranky whiner and seem to be losing my sense of humor, I started another blog called Judy Likey, which I use to only highlight things and people I like(y). I'm trying to be positive!
I want to become best friends with Wanda James. I've always dreamed of having a storefront window to decorate any way I saw fit, but Wanda is making it a reality. She's awesome and you should read the Times story about her.
In my Seattle column this week, I hear from a woman who thinks it's really funny that she mangled a guy friend's testicles. Hopefully my defense of ballsacs will quiet the chorus of "Judy is a manhater." (No, Judy is a stupidhater.)
My Frisky column details all the valuable lessons we can learn from celebrity breakups.
Now I'm going to go run some errands in the beautiful layer of snow out there. Happy new year!
