"I judge thee" is one of my favorite games to play. All you need is a friend close by and some strangers slightly out of earshot and an the belief that you should be able to tell everyone how to live their lives. Fashion faux pas are the easiest. For example, you are walking down the street with your aforementioned friend and a particularly overconfident cougar passes you by. A few steps after she's clear you simply turn and point your finger in her direction and say in a righteous tone, "Fifty year-old woman in a lycra minidress with circa 1990 racing stripes down the side, I judge thee!"
You will initially think this concept is too cruel and in return judge me. Then you will be obsessed with the idea and have to try it out. You will become addicted and curse me for planting the seed in your brain. Then you will realize how petty you are and feel guilty about it, but by then your friends will be hooked and you'll all be doing it anyway. Then you will bore of the novelty and move onto other games like GRE (gay, retarded, or European?*) and FSL (friends, sisters, or lesbians?) which have even more complex guilt issues attached to them. Fun!
But hey, we can do this in cyberspace too! I have two new bloggers that have come to my attention. I am considering adding them to my blogroll so that I may pretend that I read them on a regular basis and hold them in some sort of regard.
First there is Hail to the Thief with her site Donny Is Smoking Now! She has the advantages of having one of the most brilliant domain names ever, already having added me to her blogroll, and having nearly perfect taste in music. I found her by way of my Sitemeter. No one is safe. There are no secrets.
Then there is the blog and blogger both known as Surviving Myself, which has the immediate drawback of not having added WILATU to his blogroll yet. However, in reading one or two sentences of his blog (which is more than I have read of your blog lately, and probably all I will read of his for a while) I get a good feeling that he is simpatico. He left a comment on my Desert Island Discs post. Comments are good. Hail to the Thief has not left a comment.
Feel free to weigh judgment on either, both, none, or any other blog that is or isn't currently on my blogroll. I will read your recommendations and take them into consideration for modifications to my blogroll. (Which may mean cutting a few of you who haven't been pulling their weight.)
Remember: if you're not better than everyone, then everyone is better than you!
*Combinations are allowed. (And before you go getting all judgemental on me again, I'll have you know that some of my best friends are Europeans!)
