Why Can't We Be Friends?

People like me. I make a great first impression. I like people. But only superficially. I may have fun hanging out at a party, but I do not want to catch a cup of coffee with you later.
And that's great. I have plenty of friends. More than I care to bother with most days. But you may want to be friends with me and I get that. I am pretty spectacular. So let's set some ground rules with this simple quiz. Please be as honest as you can and maybe, just maybe this will work out.

Do you like dogs?
Do you like music?
Do you enjoy judging other people with standards too strict for anyone to live up to?
Can you knit? Well?
Can you bake? Well? For others?
Can you take a freakin' joke?
Do you give to charity?

If you answered no to more than half of these questions, well, I'm just not that into you.

If you have answered yes to more than half of these questions, you are well on your way to beginning to find out if we can be friends! Please move on to the next section.

Can you name more than 3 cast members from Big Brother?
Is Mayonnaise your favorite food?
Do you refer to your significant other as "hubby/wifey", "daddy/mother" or "my love"?
Are you a practicing witch?
Is 'chillaxin' a word one should use?
Do you think television is beneath you?
Do you strongly believe in a multiverse theory for quantum mechanics?
Do you purchase People, Us Weekly, Star or InTouch magazine on a regular basis?
Have you read all the Harry Potter Books?

If you answer yes to more than 3 of these questions, go home. It will never work out between us. I'll still talk to you at parties and acknowledge you when we run into each other at a restaurant, but WE will never be.

If you answered yes to less than three, you've got a fightin' chance at being my friend. Please move on to the last section.

Do you own a Hummer?
Do you think being gay is a choice?
Do you like to sing aloud for other people when not in a performance setting?
Is Fox News your main source of news?
Have you purchased a book written by Ann Coulter or Bill O'Rielly (not as a gag gift)?
Are you a jerk to servers?
Do you go on and on about your kids all the damn time?
Have you ever compared someone to Hitler and meant it? (other than someone who actually looks like Hitler)
Do you read TMZ?
Have you ever brought your own food or beverage to a restaurant instead of ordering?
Are you Taylor Swift?
Are you a close friend or fan of Taylor Swift?
Do you listen to Taylor Swift?
Do you think voting is a waste of time?
Have you, as an adult without children, attended a midnight release of a Harry Potter book in costume?
Do you bitch incessantly about Memphis?
Would you do a reality show with your kids?
Do you insist on bringing deviled eggs to parties, even if I ask you nicely not to?

If you answered yes to ANY of these questions, GO AWAY. I don't want to know you, see you or share air with you.
That's just how is goes.

If you answered no to these questions, we should get dinner sometime. But not alone, with a group, just in case you're really boring or dumb or hard to look at. It may not be much, but it's a start.

What purpose does it serve to make fun of other people like this, other than to build yourself up and make you feel better about yourself? It makes you look bad, not to mention- insecure, and also, it's just mean. Just sayin'.

We won't ever be friends because you are a nasty, negative person. I know you think it's cute and you're one of those people who is proud to be a bitch but it's really ridiculous the way you insult others. You've always been nice to my face but I don't trust that you didn't slam me the minute you walked away. For some reason you feel better when you're making others feel like shit. I don't get it, but then again I don't have to read your pathetic blog ever again and thank god I don't have to wait on you anymore, either.
