what would joan crawford do?

Sometimes when a situation comes up  that is out of the ordinary (and for me, it would have to be some crazy mess because my life is comprised of weirdness), it's best to channel Joan Crawford. 

Joan could handle a bitch. Joan wouldn't put up with your shit. Joan would tell you off, then tell Bette Davis off for fun. And that was when she was in a good mood. People knew Joan was crazy and for the most part they stayed out of her way because people usually steer clear of crazy.

Of course, that was before the interwebs. Now people hide behind anonymity from their desks on the interwebs, but I tend to think Joan would have signed her blog posts and comments with "who the eff else? I'm Joan Mothereffin' Crawford."  

She always had the last word, even bitch slapping two of her children from beyond the grave in the form of her will.

That's cold, yo. 

So, because I was raised to be nice (pffft), when it comes to dealing with fools, channeling Joan is what I do. And I'm asking myself "what would would Joan Crawford do?" 

I think I know the answer.


That's what Joan would say. Then she'd slap someone.

And yes, I know that's Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford in the documentary Mommie Dearest, but still.

30 day song challenge: day 17 – a song that you hear often on the radio

*I'm taking the song challenge to mean "of all time," not genre-specific. Any of these songs are subject to change at any time. 


Okay, here's the thing — I don't listen to the radio. I don't. I sometimes listen to talk radio, but that's it. I haven't listened to the radio since I lived in Atlanta, where we had a GREAT station, 99x, an alternative station. I haven't found a decent station since. Now it's my iPod all the time, or Pandora. I find out about new bands on Twitter or through the Pandora station I listen to, but never the radio. Everything on the radio sounds the same and I can't take it. So, here's Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," which is doing well on the iTunes charts. It's a good song and Adele is fabulous. If you haven't checked her out, listen to this one and see what you think.
