Well, I noticed I was a decorating snob a long time ago, and I refuse to apologize about it.

An acquaintance was boasting about her new Thomas Kinkaid painting that she paid megabucks for. I cringe at the name, it causes me such physical pain. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at hiding my cringes.

Her: "Don't you like Thomas Kinkaid?"

Me: "No. Not at all."

Her (rather indignantly): "He's a wonderful artist." (Whipping out brochure and reading aloud. "Blah blah blah blah painter of light."

Me: "Monet was a painter of light. Kinkaid is a hack."

She kind of huffed off at that point.
