Sex & the City: If I was being honest, I’d tell you that I originally started watching SaTC for the graphic nudity and sexual content. But because I’m a lady, I can say things like, “It really reflects the cultural zeitgeist of the millennium and the complexities of female relationships in a world where gender roles are on such unsteady ground.” It’s really about the enviable boobs and man-ass, though.
Coldplay: It’s not popular these days to like Coldplay and I can understand why. Chris Martin kind of jerks and minces across the stage in a way that’s both unattractive and humorous. They write decent songs, though, and there’s nothing wrong with pleasant music that doesn’t need too much “work” to enjoy. So while I’ll never be on the Train track, I’ll girl it up with Coldplay every so often. I mean, Fix You? C’mon. Beautiful.
Baby anything: This kind of goes without saying. No one’s ever going to question why I’m cooing and fawning over pictures of puppies and chicks (or puppies and chicks together omgggggsocuteIcoulddie.) And I appreciate that.
Musicals: Even if I’d been born a man, I’d have been a broadway baby. Growing up we were limited to basically Disney movies and old classics (White Christmas, Funny Girl, Meet Me in St. Louis, The Court Jester, State Fair, etc etc etc) so it was kind of inevitable that I love them. Don’t EVER say to me, “December 24th, 9 p.m. Eastern standard time,” unless you want to hear the entirety of Rent from start to finish. Seriously.
I could go on and on…I’ll probably add to this list because there are a million examples. Feel free to add your own.
