Is there something that everyone seems to love that you dislike or are just 'meh' about? I was thinking about it, and there are quite a few for me, so I figured I'd compile them into a blog post so you can either heckle me or nod in agreement. (Note: I appreciate all viewpoints. I'm not trying to put anyone who likes these things down!)
They're squishy. I can't. My family has tried to convince me for years that they're 'flavor sponges' so they just soak up the flavor around them. I don't care, texture matters, and I hate the texture.
The Wizard of Oz
I've just never really been a fan of the movie.
The Royal Family
I don't care about the royal family. Not in a rude way, I just mean that when new pictures or articles with tidbits about their lives come out, I don't feel compelled even a little bit to click on them. I realize this puts me in the blogging minority. [Though I'll be honest, I'm currently reading The Royal We--I wasn't going to, but it was available from the library with no waiting--and I'm obsessed and it kind of makes me want to Google how William & Kate met. So maybe this is changing.]
The Big Bang Theory
I feel like this show is super polarizing (die-hard fans or people who don't like it, no real in-between). I'm not a fan.
Okay, I know he like doesn't exist anymore, but I just have to get this off my chest. My friends all loved him and I didn't think he was the slightest bit funny.
Never got them, and don't plan to.
La Croix (or any other flavored unsweetened water)
I can't. I get that these are supposed to encourage people to drink water, but if I was restricted to only drink these flavored waters, I would drink way less water. Give me plain water. If it has flavoring, it needs to be sweetened for me to drink it (aka the reason I pretty much never drink flavored water).
Another comedian I'm not a fan of. There are a few movies of his I do like, but overall I'm pretty 'meh.'
If another person tells me I just have to keep drinking it to develop a taste for it, I will scream. (Also, why force yourself to drink something you hate just to make you like it?)
Michael and I tried watching part of an episode and I was like, "huh?" I can't. If you've watched How I Met Your Mother, that's how I think of Downton Abbey. (They discuss a show called Woodworthy Manor they watch and the 'drama' of it is always like, "The Duke's servant burnt the scones! *gasp*" and stuff like that.)

New Year's Eve
There's too much pressure put on it to be a good time. With Christmas or Thanksgiving you just hang out at home (well, my family does), but with NYE you could go to countless parties or clubs or whatever (clubbing + parties = things I also dislike). When you stay home, you're 'lame,' but I have to stay home or I'll be miserable... So yeah, just not a fan.
Going along with NYE... I just like holidays where you get to chill at home. I don't like holidays where you have to go socialize and have the best time or it's a waste. (I don't dislike that we gained independence, I just don't like the holiday. Don't accuse me of treason.)
'Waterfalls' by TLC
'Waterfalls' by TLC
I don't think I've ever admitted this before. Probably because everyone and their mother seems to love this song. Whenever it comes on I want to change it, and everyone around me freaks out and gets excited. So I just stay silent. I just don't think it's very catchy, particularly the non-chorus parts.
Game of Thrones
DUN DUN DUN! I think people are going to freak about this. Michael and I were like, "We should start this!" and the very first episode opens with snow and some horses galloping around and we were like, "Let's turn it off" hahaha. I'm not a huge fan of fantasy or period pieces or whatever (I have no idea if it's fantasy or if it's realistic...either way, not my favorite genre).
Why do people like taking shots? If someone suggests shots I panic and tell them I hate them and hope they'll lay off of me. And if I take one I immediately start gagging and feel like I'm going to throw up.

If I do take a shot, it's not going to be anything brown. (Even in a mixed drink the liquor will never be brown.) I'll drink gold tequila, but that's as brown as I'll go. I also kind of hate rum these days.
Do I lose my woman card now? I like to wear makeup/dislike going most places without wearing it, but I'm not someone who goes out to buy new products for fun. Like, if I already have foundation or primer or a certain color of eyeshadow, I'm not going to go out and buy another brand of it to try it out. I use it until it's gone, and then I either buy the exact same thing again, or cry trying to figure out something else to replace it (because I have no idea what I'm doing).
I'll eat crab cakes or crab cocktail (because I love cocktail sauce) but otherwise, no thanks. It makes me a pretty cheap date, so that's good, right? I'm also not a huge fan of shrimp, but will eat it sometimes.
Lilly Pullitzer/Vera Bradley/monograms
GASP. The blogger trifecta! I see bloggers post these things all the time, and I don't sigh and think, "Omg so dumb/ugly/whatever." Honestly, I think a lot of it is cute and it looks great on them and all that, but it's just not my style at all. What works for you, doesn't always work for me. *shrugs* As for monograms (and to a certain extent, the other two), they're just not very big in the PNW. I think the farther south and east you go from here, the more popular they are.
