Today is SCUD Day. What does SCUD stand for, you ask? It means Savor the Comic, Unplug the Drama. For me drama runs rampant. It is everywhere, as far as the eye can see. Mostly in my workplace, not so much in my personal life. I put forth my best efforts to detach from the daily drama today at work. It was not a simple task. It is crazy when you realize how fast you can get swept up in it. Before you know it, your idle water cooler chitchat has morphed into you calling some unknowing victim horrible names that you would never say to their face. I will be honest and admit that I like gossip, a lot. I love hearing about the latest office affair or even celebrity gossip to a certain degree. If anyone claims that they do not like hearing about that stuff, even on a small scale, they are lying. Everyone wants to hear about people who are more messed up than they are, it’s human nature. I will even plead guilty to perpetuating drama, or even causing it sometimes when it is completely unnecessary. Hey, I’m a girl…that’s what we do. So, in the spirit of ‘savoring the comic’ I have compiled my own personal list of the Top 20 Comedies of the Last 20 Years. Looking back at all these movies and the funny quotes really gave me a good laugh. Mission accomplished!
