I've got your Secret.


Too up to eyeballs to write today. Although I may have to take a moment to let you in on a little secret--THE SECRET IS THE MOST ANNOYING THING EVER.

It's like dumbed-down Kaballah (like that is even possible). And worse, it's making bitchy people the world over nice. But not actual nice: the nice that comes when you try to be nice in the hopes that good things will come your way. So it's selfish, fake nice. I was at a party this weekend chock full of typically bitchy girls, who were all wide-eyed talking reverently about the Chicken Soup for the Soul Guy. Dear lord. I had no foes. It was no fun.

The last time I remember feeling like this was when I went up to New York after it was completely Disney-fied. There were no hookers, no porn shops, no muggers, which was nice for about 4 seconds. It was also boring and commercialized. That's what Actual Disney is for.

Okay, so if you want to email me and tell me that it's SO much more than that and how it COMPLETELY changed your life and how Dr. Phil is really a genius, well, go for it. I'll be here stirring my bad karma soup, not being 100% completely entirely positive all the time. Ha!

Update: I had lunch with my friend who actually IS genuinely nice, whose (very nice) thought is that if said bitchy people use this to try to change their ways, then I shouldn't begrudge them. She has a point. Damn.

Hilarious, babs,
I hate fake nice bitches and the naive masses following the latest karma craze. I've not read the Secret, perhaps I should after that bitchy remark, eh...

Anyway, I'm with you on NY. I feel that way about Vegas. WTF happened to downtown? I despise that wretched laser show! Vegas is NOT meant to be a family destination. Before you know it, they'll do away with gambling and strip clubs!
