Ten things that make me go “meh.”
1. Colin Farrell. I really just don’t see it.
2. Rap music. I can appreciate it as a genre, and I understand and respect its cultural significance, but it’s not something that I enjoy.
3. Hockey. I know a lot of people are really enthusiastic about the sport (especially in my neighborhood; it is true that the Local U. hockey coach is the highest paid public employee in my state, even), but I just don’t see the appeal.
4. Video games. I have a daughter (and several students) who are DEEP into video games. I get the appeal, but I don’t share the affinity. My favorite “video games” are things like Tetris and Words with Friends (which, as I understand it, gamers don’t consider real games).
5. Wine. I’ll enjoy a glass of wine with dinner if someone else is having some, but I will not pop a cork for my own sake. Really, this applies to alcohol in general; I’m not opposed to having a drink now and then, but I almost NEVER come up with the idea on my own.
6. Reality t.v. Actually, this is less of a “meh” thing than a “nope” thing; I’ve never watched an episode of reality t.v. and find the entire premise of the genre offensive.
7. Dr. Who. My daughters will likely chide me for this, but I’ve seen a number of episodes and just can’t seem to catch the bug. I don’t DISLIKE the show, but it’s not something I can’t wait to see again, either.
8. Going out. I enjoy a dinner out as much (perhaps more) than the next person, but the idea of going out just for the sake of going out doesn’t appeal to me at all. I am just as amenable to staying in on the couch.
9. Twitter. I have an account, but I’m not sure I really know how to use it. I know a lot of people LIVE on their Twitter feed, but I’m much more of a facebook person.
10. Tattoos. I can appreciate them on others – and I HAVE considered one for myself – but I’m just not enthusiastic enough about the art form to go through with it.
