5 Things I Have Absolutely No Interest In

Do you ever find yourself on the outside of a fad or expectation or whathaveyou?

I feel that way a lot. There are things about me and my life that are not typical, so I don't see things the way a "typical" person does.

For example, my dad tries to talk to me about women. I sit there listening to these observations he's made about women in general from various influences and so often have to shake my head and say, "Well, not me. I'm not like that. I have no idea what to tell you."

Heh, or maybe it's that most women can't explain why we behave the way we do! Ahem.

To illustrate further, let me enlighten you on five things I have absolutely no interest in.

1. High heels - Never, ever, have I EVER wanted to wear high heels. I simply do not understand why anyone would want to. Not only are they terrible for your feet, but they are a LIE. You're misrepresenting your height!

2. School fundraisers* - They are really dumb. The school just needs to ask people for donations. Why make us buy overpriced nuts, pastries or plant bulbs when the school only gets a percentage? Who thinks this is a good and efficient idea? The companies who sell the things, that's who.

And, I hate how the school holds an assembly to get the kids all excited about the upcoming fundraiser and all the "cool" prizes they can earn if they rake in a good haul. It's manipulation! They manipulate our kids who come home and manipulate us with, "I wanna go in the limo to the pizza place, mom!"

*I specifically said SCHOOL fundraisers. Girl Scout cookies are OK.

3. Playing Facebook games - I admit, I did at one time play Farmville, Frontierville and some cooking thing, but then I pulled my head out and said NO MORE! They are just the hugest waste of time I have ever seen in my life and if you send me a game request on Facebook I will block that shit so fast. I would much rather veg out in front of the TV or crochet something or read a book. Or maybe two of those at once!

Now, I will play Words with Friends on my phone. But that one, see, requires brain cells.

4. Apple products - iPhone? No. iPad? Nuh uh. Mac? Nope. iPod? Notsomuch. Have never owned even one of those things and I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. I remember using one of the very first Macintosh computers in 5th grade and that's all I've ever done.

5. The movie Frozen - Did you just gasp? I think I distinctly heard you draw air in sharply. I know, right? I am so in the minority on this one. I've just never seen the appeal. The theme song is pretty cool....but only because of its meaning. It actually gets a little too repetitive for my taste.


"Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go....". Alright already, I'm letting it go!

I know there are things I dig that others have absolutely no interest in. If you're into any of these things, I'm not judging you. Much.
