Bad juju

There's been a lot of it floating around Swishyville the past several days, so I need an influx of good stuff. I want everyone to tell me what your best quality is. I want you to sit there for a second, think about what's really great and special and unique about you, and then brag about it. And I want it to make you feel good! Because it's great and special and unique!

I don't know what mine is yet. I know I've got one, but I might need to read some of yours first.

In other news, I know, I know, I know, I haven't announced the Swishy Blog Birthday winners yet. Maybe being a slacker is my best quality? But I want to do it right, with the little pieces of paper and everything, so I'll do it tomorrow during commercial of the Grey's Anatomy season finale and post them tomorrow night. So, see, it's kinda like it's planned ... right? 'Cause, you know, Grey's mix, Grey's finale ... ha. OK, never mind.

All right, kiddies ... gimme some good stuff!

no one is better than i at being given ultimatums.

bad juju--that sounds pretty f-ing anti-semitic.

i love to try to help people only to offend them wildly and absurdly.

i can write, chew tobacco, drink alcohol and inspire hatred simultaneously.

although my only wish is to be able to do whatever i want as long as it isn't blatantly horrible or severely criminal, i have a world-class ability to ruin the lives of others.

many have tried, but the world is still waiting for another person who can go to work alone in the middle of the night to try to sort out all the stuff he (uh, or she) is screwing up at, lest he (or she) be fired and disgraced, and yet still, somehow, find himself (or herself) suddenly and so very strangely embroiled in world war 3.

i am totally awesome at feeling a strong sense of loyalty to people who find me utterly reprehensible.

Hey, is Dr. House leaving anonymous comments again??

I'm not good at this best quality thing, either. But I'm gonna go out on a limb and say my best quality is being silly with my kids. Because they think I'm funny and that makes them happy which makes me happy.

So I'm not going to change the world. LOL

I'm pretty good at shoplifting.

Jenster, I like that quality!

Mine is my compassion for others. Sometimes it's a fault because I need to focus more on me, but mostly it's a great thing. I'm just really good at sensing when someone is down, needs some help, or would like to be left alone.

I can be amusing. Something this is a good quality- sometimes annoying.

 
At 10:11 AM, Blogger Swishy said...

Jenster, based on the few episodes I've seen of House, your assessment is entirely accurate :)

For those who don't watch Grey's Anatomy, there's an episode that revolves around "bad juju." That's juju, not JewJew.

My word is gold. I make less promises because of that, since I won't make ones I can't keep. I'm also fiercely loyal.

I will find the bad ju-ju and curb stomp it.

According to my friends---my best quality is that they can tell me anything---whether it's something that they've done, thought, felt, etc. or something about their spouse...whatever...and I don't judge. So, my friends say that they feel like they can tell me anything & I will listen, and help if I can, but most importantly, i don't judge & don't hate them or harbor any resentment toward them or their spouse.
:)

(can you see, people come to me when they have relationship drama.)

My best quality is that I like to encourage people. It comes from my Mom. Throughout my childhood, no matter how bad I goofed up or how weird an outfit I created, she always found some way to cheer me on, and I knew she meant it. It's powerful stuff.

Oooh, Manic's gonna have to think on this one and get back to you.

Are you talking physical quality, or are you talking different kind of qualities? Cuz if it's physical, I think my legs thigh on down are pretty good. Hee hee.

My other best quality is that I think I can make anyone in a room feel comfortable.

Yeah, that's me. Manic for you.

And wow. Anonymous sounds like he/she may need some serious therapy.

God, I'm so glad that anonymous person finally went to bed. How annoying. Must be a male.

i am really good at eating candy and drinking beer...sometimes at the same time.

 
At 4:44 PM, Blogger Jenster said...

I'd be friends with any of you. Except for the annoying anonymous person because, well, he/she is annoying.

 
At 6:14 PM, Blogger TTQ said...

i'm silly and odd. crazy in a good way. i habve papers to prove i was bred to be that way.

 
At 7:43 PM, Blogger Frannie Farmer said...

I wear my heart on my sleeve .. which means that I can not lie, even when I should. I could never be a government employee or a politician! It also means, for me, that I have great empathy for others. Good/bad .. depends on the day!
And I have a really long tongue - think Gene Simmons ... too much info?

My best quality (which isn't unique or interesting or anything) is that if I see something that needs to be done, I can't help but do it. There are some obvious exceptions, but generally speaking.

I'm also very good at being pampered.

 
At 12:10 PM, Anonymous Kristabella said...

My best quality is that I can drink lots of beer in one sitting. Or wine. Or grain alcohol. I'm not picky.

Siriously...I would say my sense of humor. Because if I don't think I'm funny, who will?

And I'm the world's BEST Auntie.

I really am a caring person, a good listener and once I am a friend I am loyal and can be trusted. I hate people who can't be trusted or your gut says something is not right, I don't feel safe here. Plus, I am a huge advocate for children.
