Things You Probably Like That I Don’t Like

In general I don’t think of myself as a picky person.  I try to be open minded but just like anyone else I have honed in on my likes and dislikes over the years.  I’m not a very counter-culture person but there are a few things that nearly everyone likes that I don’t like.

Here you go:

Fake Cheese- I hate that goopy yellow stuff they put on nachos, velveta, the american cheese wrapped in plastic slices, cheese wiz, cheese from a can. You get the idea.

Catch 22 and Catcher in the Rye- I hated both of these books and would not read them again unless a gun was at my head

Anti-hero Shows- I’ve genuinely tried to get into Sopranos, Nurse Jackie, Breaking Bad, Dexter and other shows with these ne’er-do-wells and I just can’t get into them.  Too violent for my tastes and I found them to be boring.  I hated the Big C.  All of the characters are scum.  I didn’t like a single one.  I liked Mad Men for a while but even that became too sadistic and immoral for my stomach to handle.

(I thought of this post because everyone is talking about Breaking Bad and I just couldn’t get into it)

The Bachelor- I have so many friends who are into this show and report about it on facebook.  In the age of feminism it boggles the mind.  How can they be surprised when these staged relationships don’t work out?  The man has been courting 20 other women while claiming to be in love with you? I have never gotten it.

Sheryl Crow- People love Sheryl Crow. Not me.  I think she is a poser.  When things need to be country, she does country.  When things need to be a little more edgy, she does that and then we are back to Lilith Fair.  Give me a break.

Twilight- I liked the first 2 twilight books actually a lot.  They were fun and romantic.  Then the 3rd book came and I hated it.  I hated that Bella became a damsel in distress.  I hated the love triangle especially after the mutual acknowledgments between Edward and Bella in New Moon.  I hated how nothing surprised me.  I hated the dialogue.  I hated the messages to women.  I like the ideas about abstinence and purity but don’t like how they were couched in such dime novel drivel.

Socks- My roommate is always getting at me about wearing socks.  I hate socks and wear sandles or flats whenever I can.  Don’t know why I just do

Protein anything- I hate protein powders, drinks and bars.  And yes I’ve tried yours and I hated it.  Everyone I have tried has made me want to spit it out.  The texture and taste are like eating tar.

Dark Knight- We’ve already learned that I am one of the few who did not like the Dark Knight.  We should really start a support group for those that don’t like this movie.  Its a lonely world.

Kevin Hart- I have never heard a more annoying man in my life.  Just his voice is like nails on a chalkboard.  I didn’t laugh once at a recent bit I saw in him and in a movie I wanted to punch him each time he was in a scene.  Like Tracey Morgan but worse.

30 Rock- Speaking of Tracey Morgan I do not like 30 Rock.  I have never found it funny and tried lots.  It just doesn’t make me laugh.

Rhubarb and Figs- So far I’ve not had either in a preparation I’ve liked. Open to the possibility of liking them.

Dried Fruit- I want to like dried fruit but I just don’t.  Its ok but I never crave it and I find I buy it hoping I will snack on it and it always seems too sweet for me.  Not a fan.

Running- I hate running.  This is why I swim. I would rather do just about anything than go for a run.

Driving- If I could live without driving I would be a happy girl.  I really dislike it, so anytime people suggest they will drive I’m in!

Camping- Everyone knows this but I know you love it.  I do not.  I do not like the bugs, dirt, wild animals, or sleeping on the ground.  Sorry.

Dancing- Everyone also knows this.  I will go and dance occasionally to meet new people but I really don’t like it.  The horrible music is too loud and I have no natural rhythm. Not a fan.

YA Books- Clearly there are some YA books that I like but I’d say I dislike the genre more than most people I know.  I feel it is getting so reductive.  I’m bored with YA and usually they involve fantasy which I am not a fan of in general.

Black Licorice- It seems you either love it or hate it. I hate it!

So there you go! What do you think of this list!
