Bowling, pool games, movies like the Titanic or Pulp Fiction


Name me at least TWO things that you enjoy which are not enjoyed or maybe not known by many other people with whom you fraternize.
Doctor Who, super sour pickles, long sweaty bike rides

Clearly you should be fraternizing with my friends, because I think 95% of them are into Dr. Who!

Everyone seems to love these things but me: bacon, blockbuster action movies, Bjork.

I am in the minority amongst my peer group with my love for: Choward's Violet Mints, vacationing in non-touristy places like Little Rock and Louisville, Broadway musicals (unless they involve Andrew Lloyd Weber, who sucks).

I can't freaking stand Bjork. I had a coworker who may have... overplayed her music. In 1999. Still not over it.

I am with you on Broadway, although, I still like ALW stuff sometimes.

I like some rap music! I'm always defending rap stuff on my progressive rock boards.

I also may know a long list of Stephen King fans, even if I am not one of them.

A) gaming consoles. Actually, most gaming. (But I love scrabble)

B1) regency romances.

B2) Organizing or reconciling other people's papers and records. Doing mine, I despise, but sorting other people's is like a giant puzzle. I cheerfully spent two house yesterday trying to match tagging receipts to invoices at work.

B2a) As it happens, the purchasing admin has as much of fetish for office supplies as I do. So in reward for helping her with the audit, I got a small Gachuck reusable paper clipper. I had to promise to not try to clip my nose with it, or otherwise use it inappropriately. But... shiny metal clips!

For me, a trip to the Staples is how other people feel about a trip to the ice cream stand or the amusement park.

I know there's a bunch of stuff that I can't think of right now, but here's a few off the top of my head:

Name me at least one thing that everyone seems to really like that you just can't get into.

anti-smoking, reality TV, gaming, David Lynch, Neil Gaiman, Superman, audio-books, twitter, being outdoors, Facebook

Name me at least TWO things that you enjoy which are not enjoyed or maybe not known by many other people with whom you fraternize.

clowns, pop/rap/hip-hop music, writing in pencil, hanging out with my family, cleaning, musicals, bad romance comedies, smoking, bridge (the card game)

Also, mind if I re-post this in my journal? They're very good questions!

Lost, The Sopranos, "reality" TV, America's Next Top Anything...


I have a couple friends who like the goofball discordant jazz music, and some friends who like the moody emo goth stuff, but none that like both.

1. Buffy and other Joss Whedon stuff. I've tried! Honest! I just can't get into the shows

2. I love Italian giallos (murder mysteries) even the ones with really bad dubbing.
I love Degrassi junior high and Degrassi high! Even the Next Generation.
I will also give you a third one. Sometimes, if I'm bored and it's on the telly I'll watch "The Way of the Master". Kirk Cameron's awful show that gives you pointers on converting people to Christianity. It's so funny!

Re: Joss Whedon/Buffy.

The only JOss Whedon stuff that I've ever enjoyed was Firefly. Buffy and Angel...I just didn't get it. And that made me sad because other people loved it so I wanted to love it.

I really don't like everything HBO (Sopranos, Sex & The City, Entourage, etc), plus Lost, Dr Who, BSG, Babylon 5, etc. I just can't care.

For me, coffee in general; I drink it because it serves a purpose, and has a certain placebo effect. (Hot beverage that is bitter and tastes like horrible sludge? MUST wake me up!) Not because I like it.

For the first: Rilo Kiley, and Law & Order.

For the second: Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire, and Oprah magazine.

These are tough questions.

1)Tattoos. Philosophically I like them because I'm pretty much for any form of creative and individual artistry. But I always have emotional responses that dissappoint me.

2) America's increasing infatuation with horribly spoiled and irresponsible teenagers being sensationalized in fiction.

The show Red Dwarf/almost all british humor.

Things I lke that most other people don't:

TV Shows: Moonlight (though I know you share my love), Cold Case (I don't know why!)

Will Ferrel, Hollywood Regency, The Martha Stewart 'Living' magazine, Squirt Soft Drink, Runny Eggs

I'm sure there are more but this is what I can think of right now!

There was a period of time where I watched Cold Case every day!
Will Ferrel-yes!
Runny eggs-yes!

Buffy, Firefly, tons of 'geek tv.' I like my spots but I have trouble watching TV in general. MMORPGs, especially WoW.

Name me at least TWO things that you enjoy which are not enjoyed or maybe not known by many other people with whom you fraternize.

Gardening. Fashion spreads, especially highly weird fashion spreads -- avant garde designers, Japanese design.

Can't: Burning Man

Can: Peeling nasty cracking old paint off my ceiling, no matter how slow the progress; rock scrambling, kind of like climbing, but not the kind where you fall a lot.

I like stopping paint peeling midway, then lying on the floor and finding cloud-shapes. Look! over there! a velociraptor about to catch a sheep! And here, a car with a flat tire.

1) Coffee. Not even coffee flavored candy or ice-cream.

2) Hmm... this is harder.. to stick with the food theme - foods I learned to like as a child such as halvah, gefilte fish and chopped liver
