Some things in life I just don’t get…like how Judge Judy earns (reportedly) $47 million per year. I watch her show occasionally. I believe any rational and reasonably intelligent person could do what she does. Wish they’d asked me! I would have done it for a lot less than what they pay her. I have a Criminal Justice/Sociology degree, after all. I suppose though, her ‘tude is one of the things people come back for.
Nobody likes nice, do they?
Take blogs for instance…blogs that trash talk other bloggers get lots of traffic and a ton of comments. I’ve seen it happen locally (in a now “private” blog), and I was recently “introduced” to a mega-site that was apparently designed to insult others, where people are free to say anything they want (good or bad), in uncensored threads and behind a cloak of anonymity.
I remember in high school, there was a girl named Sandy. Tall, brunette, and cute. I didn’t like her. The reason? She reminded me of me. It took me years to figure that out, and when I did figure it out, I realized just how nice she was because I dished out a lot…but she was never mean to me.
I can’t help but wonder if the posters on the threads on the mega site (no link because I don’t want to advertise it) somehow see themselves in the people they tear down. They talk about how disgusted they are with the bloggers they malign, yet they keep going back, reading every post. There must be a reason.
Who knows what that reason would be?
Not me, that’s for sure.
So, the not weighing for a month thing? Harder than I thought it would be. No cookies or sweet treats? A piece of cake. :::Pun intended::: I’ve come close to giving in to weighing, but haven’t given chocolate a second thought. And I haven’t missed Facebook at all…except for once when I was going to look up an old friend to see if she’s joined.
I have a preliminary start on my A to Z entries. April is a busy blogging month! If you haven’t signed up, you should consider it.
