Happy Thanksgiving! May you have a wonderful holiday with friends and/or family.
Before we enjoy our turkey and trimmings, let’s dish about a topic so big it needs three separate posts.
Are you a badass?
The Urban Dictionary says (among other things) that a badass is:
“The epitome of the American male. He radiates confidence in everything he does, whether it’s ordering a drink, buying a set of wheels, or dealing with women. He’s slow to anger, brutally efficient when fighting back.
The badass carves his own path. He wears, drives, drinks, watches, and listens to what he chooses, when he chooses, where he chooses, uninfluenced by fads or advertising campaigns. Badass style is understated but instantly recognizable. Like a chopped Harley or a good pair of sunglasses: simple, direct, and functional.”
Your post is quite provocative! Do you put you in the “Badass” category? This does make me think… interesting. Thanks… now I have to ponder this for a while! 😉

Yay! The Grey’s Anatomy lady. I always think what a lovely name she has when it comes up in the credits, but hadn’t been inspired to look her up till I read your post. Good luck to her.
I’ve only seen a few episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, though I’ve watched quite a bit of Scandal. It’s interesting to hear her speak. She confesses to being uncomfortable, and she comes across as reserved…but has a lot to say.
I wouldn’t consider myself a badass. But Shonda Rhimes definitely is. I’ve heard tales of the yes thing before. Haven’t read this book, though.
It’s a fun read as well as inspiring. I’m not a big fan of hers, but I really enjoyed this book.
[…] on to Badassery. Last week I posted Part I, in which I opined on Shonda Rhimes’ Year of Yes. This week, I feature another Badass: Elizabeth […]
