2. lobster
3. ferrets
4. mushrooms
5. gender reveal parties
6. WIKIPEDIA
7. the uber/lyft craze
8. coffee

1. wind chimes ....meh
2. lobster ...YEEEEES!!!!!!!!!!!!! I HATE LOBSTER! (and Crab!)
3. ferrets ...meh
4. mushrooms ....yeah, don't really like the mushrooms....
5. gender reveal parties ...I don't know what those are... I imagine they have them in Portland for adults now....and yeah, I wouldn't like those.... :hehe:
6. WIKIPEDIA .......WHAT?!?!? I LOOOOOVE Wikipedia!!!! I know it's not the end all, but it is SOOOO convenient when you just want like a quick rundown of the "facts" on something and you don't have to navigate all the advertising crap.....
7. the uber/lyft craze .......YESSSSS!!!! PEOPLE WILLINGLY ENLISTING WITH THE DEVIL!
8. coffee ....whatchutalking 'bout....?
9. horse-drawn carriage rides (esp. in urban areas) .....meh... it did annoy me trying to avoid the horse crap when I would do rides around Central Park back in the day....
10. barbequing ....meh.
Some of these I was like, OH YEAAAAH!!! and others I was like WHAAAAT?!?! You are all over the place! :lol:

Funny story on the lobster....I was on a vacation in Fiji once and was staying at a resort on a small island (only resort/inhabitant on the small island) It was like a Australian family vacation spot, so they had games at night, and one of them was like trivia or something. Long story short our table won, and we won a breakfast on the beach in the morning with Lobster Scrambled Eggs....I was like.... Oh GAG! Do I HAVE to get up for this?!?! :lol:

I had ketchup on my burritos (only refried beans and cheese) yesterday and I was nearing the end of my 64 oz container and I was think........hoooooooly shit!..........I better have another bottle in the cupboard......I can't handle another couple weeks without ketchup....surely I am having grilled cheese soon!....... and I have burritos for lunch 3-4 times a week....luckily I found a gleaming full 64 oz Heinz in the cupboard. That should do for a couple weeks....maybe.... :scared:

1. Ketchup
2. Cheese (I can handle some cheeses when melted)
3. Soy sauce
4. TV in general
5. Fucking cats
6. Alcohol (except for only Rädler or Scotch)

I can't think of 4 more... Unless I just say stuff like "Ariana Grande, Amy Winehouse", etc.

EDIT: I can add social media. I actively hate it. It's so detrimental to people. I know it can help people keeping in touch, but it's unavoidably unhealthy. I stay the fuck away from it all, aside from emergencies (Twitter was helpful to me during the Chile earthquake in 2011 and during the social uprising last October.)

But you're okay with abstinent cats? Personally, I could do without 'em, whether or not they're having sex.

Now that I read it back, it makes it seem like I don’t enjoy the popular activity of fucking cats.

The current season of Better Call Saul is as good as any season of Breaking Bad. I think the show has even more depth and development of characters. And I find it more heartbreaking than Breaking Bad.

Everyone likes ferrets? :lol:
About fifteen years ago one of my friends bought a ferret, he said he had wanted one ever since watching Beastmaster as a kid. Anyway, so many people would come over to his house just to play with that ferret he ended up putting a sign on his front door, MARIO IS NOT HOME. (the ferrets name). True story.

A few times I've been tempted to get Grindr and just meet up with someone and be gay for a while.
