You Know What I Love?

I love when I get an opportunity to make someone feel good when they weren’t expecting it at all. That is SO FUN. It’s way more fun for me, in fact, than I think it is even for the person I’m making feel good. Case in point, you remember the story of KT the Breakfast Waiter. I mean, how fun was that, right?

Today, I got to make an unsuspecting person feel good again. And even better, I brought attention to how much of a heinous beast Ashley Judd is all at the same time. Talk about win/win!

So you know how Ashley’s been on her anti-coal-mining kick lately? And she’s been crying and carrying on at various events about it? Well, a school teacher in Kentucky named Janette Jude wrote an open letter to Ashley, which I posted at my other site (along with some a few observations of my own, natch). 😉 And people really responded to this letter, because it’s freaking AWESOME. And so I thought to myself, “Self – you need to figure out a way that Janette Jude can see this post, and all of the great comments on it, because that will make her feel good.” So I found Janette on Facebook, and sent her a message along with a link to the post. And Janette wrote back and was super happy about it, and even commented on the post herself to thank everyone for sticking up for her.

And now over 330 people have clicked the “like” button at the bottom of that post, which means it’s going up on those 330 facebook profiles, and hopefully tons more people see it than might have been otherwise possible. AND, the editor of Coal People Magazine commented that he wants to reprint her letter in their next edition, and give her a free subscription. TELL me that’s not the most awesome thing ever!!

I’m so happy for Janette Jude, even though I don’t know her, because her letter was amazing and perfect and because she’s getting lots of COTR and FB attention from it now. And I’m happy that I got to help do that.

    Nice job Mock.

    Coal People Magazine? Can we get Ashley Judd’s address and buy her a subscription?

  • Punky

    Mock – I love doing stuff like that too. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE that Janette’s getting support and positive publicity, especially since it makes the Juddster look ridiculous! Mikey, wouldn’t it be fun to paper her car and house in subscriptions?!

  • Nancy

    You rock, Mock!

  • mikey

    Punky: It would indeed be fun but as my business partners live in Nashviile I can’t get arrested there and have it make the newspaper.

    If you and say…..Bob….were to get busted for coalpeoplepapering AJ’s house, I would gladly post bond for the both of you.

    In other news, Ashley Judd’s dogs have been spotted in a canine throwdown out in the barn over who gets to approach her first, as they cannot do so it all at once. This of course is due to her fragile “condition” (oh, where to begin…) & state of victimhood brought on by this travesty!!!

    Dog #1: But I don’t wanna go…You go! It’s your turn!

    Dog #2: I went last time!!! I’m tellin’…Mom!!!

    Dog #3: *rolls over, plays dead*

    PS: Excellent job Mock!!! I love when stuff like this happens! Especially to someone who REALLY deserves a comeuppance! YAY!

  • Buckeye Bob

    I know someone that’s spent time with her at some functions and they said she’s a real bitch.

  • sunnyAZ

    Yay, Mock!

  • Janette Jude

    YES!!! You did make me feel good about this letter. Thanks so much. I’ll be calling Al Skinner tomorrow. I never imagined that so many people would respond to the letter. Thanks for helping get the word out.

  • Mockarena

  • Reminiscent_of_Purple

    You rock, Janette!

  • Serenity

    Yay, Mock!

    Good on you Mock, and well done Janette.

    Ashley Judd is like a bad dose of herpes. Embarrassing to talk about, and hard to get rid of.

  • elena

    wow, you’re such a hateful person, to devote an entire website to bash one actress? do you have children? if so, this surely takes away from raising them. then again, i wonder what you can offer another human being in terms of compassion?

  • Mockarena

    elena – thanks for the giggle. 😀

    I love newbies.

  • sunnyAZ

    Elena, don’t you know how to capitalize??? You make yourself look ignorant!
