A wise gal recently made me see my situation in a better light. One in which, I totally hadn't realized, I am awesome!! Which, of course is how I like to be. I was getting a bit annoyed that a certain somebody keeps trying to out-do me. In my opinion, if someone does something well, and you are jealous, the way to really show them up probably isn't to make a showy attempt at the same thing they already excel at. Pretty much only accomplishing looking stupid and being annoying. It is however hilarious to watch that person flail around trying new things they suck at. I know, I am a jerk. Oh well. Anyhow my level headed pal pointed out that some of this copycat shit isn't so bad. Because even if their heart isn't in the right place, at least they look like a good person for a little bit. Like volunteer work for instance. At the end of the day, if competing to "keep up with the Felti" is making this person serve the community like I do, then great!! I just made a super negative person do something positive. Excellent reverse psychology idea. Well, in a "stop hitting yourself" kind of way.
I only have a few more minutes till dinner ( I really love when my spouse cooks and lets me have a few moments to tune out Yo Gabba Gabba the best I can and try to blog) so I will list some good and stupid events from this week.
