Guilty Aversions

I was planning on scheduling this post weeks ago, but never got around to it. I ran across this idea on one of my favorite blogs, but can't remember which one now. Anyway, the premise for today's post is pretty simple. We all have guilty pleasures. I've talked about many of mine on this blog. Well, today, I'm going to share my guilty aversions with you. These are things that a lot of other people like, but me... I just don't.



Anthropologie
I don't think their clothes are that cute.
I also think they're extremely overpriced.



Dave Matthews Band
I don't think their music totally sucks,
but I don't get all the hype.



Wine
I've tried red.
I've tried white.
I don't particularly like either.



Real Housewives
I don't watch any of these shows.
I don't plan to start either.



Black Friday
You won't find me in a store on Black Friday.
I don't have the patience for asshole shoppers.

i'm with you on DMB and Black Friday.

Christine said...

And this is why I read your blog! I don't like any of those things either! I think my aversion to Black Friday shopping came from working at Wal-Mart for 5 years and seeing some of the craziest things happen over $10 oversized Care Bears.

Christina said...

Ditto, ditto, ditto and ditto. But I do like Real Housewives of NYC and Jersey.

The Dave Matthews one made me cry. I used to be a major groupie. But once I got married, I stopped going to concerts all over the place.

I'm pretty much with you on everything,except wine. WINE is my lovah and my friend. It's my beautiful baby in a long stemmed glass. Nothing comes between me and my vino. It's love love love.
So in case I'm not clear. I love wine.

Kristy said...

I have never participated in Black Friday. WTF. That's what I think. But, I have to disagree on the wine. Of course. I love it.

Tara said...

i'm with you on the real housewives!! and i just went to target today and it wasn't bad at all. picked up some sweaters for me for only $9! i will never go out in the middle of the night though!

Caitlin (Pacifier In My Pocket) said...

I love this idea! And I am absolutely with you on most of them...except I have been out shopping all day.

Michelle Hoad said...

ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto and amen!

Natalie said...

How are we friends? I adore DMB, shopping (even on Black Friday) & can drink Reisling by the gallon.

I don't care for Anthropologie- mostly the prices. And I've never watched a Real Housewives episode.

Scrappy Girl said...

I don't get the Anthropologie thing either.

DMB...I don't even know one song they sing.

Wine...no thank you.

Black Friday...I am still recovering from 10 hour affair with it.

The Real Housewife one made me gasp! How could you not? You should give Beverly Hills a whirl.

Impulsive Addict said...

Ditto from me on all items except Black Friday. I tell myself every year that I won't do it this year, and then my arm gets twisted (literally) and I cave. I complain the WHOLE ENTIRE TIME. I was thankful that I didn't get killed or kill anybody else. Only crazies shop on BF...but I'm not crazy any other day of the year. Just sassy.

Karen Peterson said...

Anthropologie has some cute stuff, but the prices are ridiculous. I couldn't imagine ever buying anything from them.

Dave Matthews...I used to love them. I guess the fact I don't remember the last time I listened to any of their CDs kind of says that I might agree with you on that one too.

MiMi said...

First let me say: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!
Our list is identical!!! BF shoppers are CRAZY!
Wine is ICK.
RH's are rich bitches!
Anthropologie is NOT THAT CUTE.
DMB: Notsamuch. Not really into them. At. all. Some people LOVE them tho.

MiMi said...

Oh, and also...shit. I came back to comment about something else and now I can't remember. OY.

MiMi said...

Aha! I remembered. U2. I feel about U2 the same way as DMB.

Meghan said...

I did a post like this a few months back - so fun! I am totally with you on Black Friday shoppers - seriously, the idiots crawl out of the woodwork and I have no patience for it!

Allyson & Jere said...

I am TOTALLY with you on allll of those things. Except, if you happened to read my blog and see that I DID go out on Black Friday. Don't judge, it was my virgin voyage.

Liz said...

Amen, sistah! I share all of those dislikes with you, well... except for the wine. I love me some wine!

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

I'm with ya in Anthro & DMB!

cornflakegirl74 said...

I agree with most of the items on this list... except for wine and DMB. Both together might make you feel differently ;)

AND HECK NO--I spent Black Friday under the sheets, doing my holiday shopping from the comforts of my pajamas, coffee mug in hand. As it's meant to be :) You couldn't pay me enough to hit up the stores on that day.

AMY said...

YES......I totally agree with you on all of these.

For Wine I like Arbor Mist, but thats because its so sweet!

Date Girl said...

I'm with you on all counts except the wine. White wine on a hot summer day and red wine pretty much always!

Cathy said...

No wonder I love you! I'm not into any of those things. Word.
