15 Things you DISLIKE, HATE or CAN'T STAND & everyone else seems to like/love
The very best Tamales made by YOUR grandmother. Still gross.
(same goes for her specialty dish containing any variety of internal organs)
Diana wrote that. I am so keeping it. Because it rings true for me.
Martinis. I don't care if Martinis are cool now, and if they contain things martinis actually don't contain. I was over it before it started.
3. BAND/MUSIC GROUP/SINGER
I can't make friends with RAP. I try. I can't. It's ok for certain applications, but as for sitting around on a Saturday, or going out at night, or road tripping? Hell no.
Country Twang Music. Makes my eyes bleed. New country? Really old Country? Soft rock faking as country and actually getting air play? Ok. Tractor, I'm-a-redneck-and-God-Loves-it Twang Country is not ok.
Summer vacation season - I don't want to be anywhere where everyone is going to be at the same time. Sweaty crowds are not my thing. I will take this and run with it. Summer also involves taking off more clothes than my body type generally makes attractive. It is the season of complete self-concsiousness and self-loathing for me.
Basketball, specifically NBA. They took a great, approachable sport that everyone can enjoy and turned it into fake, slick, eye popping commerce. Add "pro"-athleticism in here and we're good. No one should be paid that much to be a lout who literally gets away with murder.
Any horror film, especially those based on true events. I don't get the point. Aren't you terrorized enough by what really happens in the world? Taking someone else's tragedy and sensationalizing it into a date movie is horror enough.
There's quite a few I don't "get," but Vin Diesel and Clive Owen number among them.
Barbie, in any of her iterations. Yanno, Tara Reid, Pamela Anderson, etc etc
9. TV SHOW
American Idol. Any other form of faux "reality" television. Even though I watch some. It's scary.
My opinion here would really be offensive to some people I care about so I will just leave that one alone.
Giganto vehicles that are never used for their purposes. You do not need a Hummer if you live in downtown ANYWHERE. Suburbans, purchased only for the new infant, have no place.
Valentine's Day. I celebrate it in my own fashion, but I could reeeeeally do without it being considered a holiday.
Freezing Rain. I can deal with snow. I love the rain. Combine "freezing" with "rain" you get instantly ice-slicked roads, which I do not like. And there's nothing romantic or pleasant about walking in freezing rain.
That weirdass shade between green and yellow that dominated the 70s formica production. WTF was up with that?
15. RECREATIONAL ACTIVITY
Karaoke. Don't get it.
