I Don't Get It

This post is a bit of a copy cat on MCW's post yesterday.  But I figured she wouldn't mind if I confessed a few popular things that I don't get either.  You don't need to agree with me.  Just simply letting you know a few things that always make me wonder why they are so well loved.

* Stacked platform heels.  Or whatever you call these shoes.  I'm sorry, but I think there is just absolutely nothing attractive about these types of shoes.  Nothing. 


* Gone With The Wind.  Yawn.  It just does nothing for me.

* The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.  Or as I call them, Polygamist Porn.

* Cross Fit.  What the what?  Jumping on boxes and rolling tires?  Someone please explain the popularity of this fad.


* Funny photo booths at weddings/formal events.  OK, I can see where this would be fun at a casual event such as a child's birthday party or a summer cook out.  But why would you want to muck up pretty formal/cocktail outfits with stupid giant sunglasses and a paper mustache on a stick?


* Not watching TV.  I don't understand what you do in the evenings or when you feel yucky on a Sunday afternoon in January if you don't watch any television.  Should I feel dumb because I do watch TV?  And sometimes a lot of it?  Are you implying that you are better than me or smarter than me or that you find more fabulous ways to fill your extra hours?  I honestly do not know how to react when someone tells me they don't watch any TV.

OMG! The photo booths! I agree and the stupid mustache makes it worse!!!

I loved the book Gone with the Wind, but could do without the movie. I would love to try Crossfit! But I am scared I will get my ass handed to me!

I agree with everything but Gone With the Wind ... I LOVE that movie :)

Love GWTW. I've read it at least 7 times. I don't watch much reality tv at all, and I consider the bachelor/ette as well as Kardashians and any "real" housewife the worst. Ugggg....

Ally said...

I'm right there with you on everything but the CrossFit. I tried it once and liked it.

Danielle said...

Oh, I agree about the stacked platforms. No matter who made them, and who is wearing them, I just don't get it!

Casey said...

Stacked platforms - is that what they're actually called? I just call the hooker/tranny shoes.

GWTW doesn't do it for me, book or movie. Ditto for The Wizard of Oz.

Never heard of Crossfit.

Photo booths at weddings are lame.

I do watch a couple of hours of tv a week, but no Bachelor/ette. I'll admit to watching the first season of The Bachelor, but after that everybody knows how to play the game, contestants included.

I 100 percent agree on the shoes!!!!! I read an article in the nytimes style section and they called them pieces of furniture on your feet!!!! Xoxo

I am so glad to hear you say that you don't like "Gone With the Wind" either because I don't like it, and everyone always gives me such a hard time! Love your blog. :)

OMG!! I so get the shoes and Bachelor/Bachelorette shows


Bahahahahahahahaha!!! Love this post. So much.

I can't even wear freaking heels since I had a baby. My whole body would topple right over! My husband laughed hysterically at the "tranny/hooker" comment. He calls them that too.

Love Gone With the Wind. Can't help it.

Cross Fit? I can't even get excited to walk across the street.

My husband and I laughed so hard at the no TV. We get you. We so get you. I'm sure this makes everybody else SO much better than us because we watch TV. Sometimes I like to veg out. Like tonight!

I hate fads like Crossfit and paleo and all that. They are like cults! If you want to do a certain exercise or start a specific diet go ahead! But no need to post about it nonstop!

I always get annoyed at the anti tv people. There are plenty of great tv shows out there. And nothing wrong with watching crap either! It's entertainment. We all deserve a break!
