Too funny. I'll have to save this one to use on my husband the next time he's not feeling well (I'm both a smartass -and- unoriginal!).

I second fitzwillie's comment about self-criticism coloring how one reads reviews of one's work, and I think there is an added layer of not wanting to become complacent just because I've gotten a good review. Also, I'm not sure if this is just a trait of the particular publications in which I'm occasionally mentioned, or of classical music criticism in general, but bad reviews of a particular performance tend to highlight specific flaws, whereas good reviews give more general praise, which makes it easier to dismiss them as "just being nice".
