Good list Nina. I agree with your dislike of most of what you got down there.

BUT

I don't recall you ever liking the bogans across the street, men with a long pinky fingernail, the 300 script writers or The Biggest Loser.

The rest checks out.

I did like The Biggest Loser for a while. I just didn't like to talk about it. The bogans across the street started saying hello to us, but now they've stopped, so they totally count. And I had a crush on a Japanese guy in my 5th form biology class who had a long pinky fingernail.

I paid $27 to see the 300, so you could argue I liked those writers plenty at that point, but I'll concede that it is borderline. Which is, incidentally, not very Spartan of me. NEVER SURRENDER!!

PEOPLE WHO CLAP WHEN A PLANE LANDS!!

Glenn said...

Correct!

I love many things that you hate, does this mean we can no longer be friends?

Glenn said...

That's the beauty of the list of 73.

There was a time I really liked everything in it.

But I think we'll be right.
