I Still Watch 'Survivor,' Deal With It

Let's make "liking stuff" the new "not liking stuff."

 Jane and I pushed ourselves so hard over the weekend to get this website done for you that when I actually got home Sunday night, just sitting on the couch and watching TV felt similar to the first night in a real bed after 3 days of camping. Not dissimilar to how wondrous I imagine every bed/bite/shower must feel after 36 days in the jungle.

Segue! Cause the "Survivor" finale was on last night for three blissful hours. Is it really uncool to still be watching "Survivor"? I suspicion it must be, because when I tell people I watch the show they wrinkle their noses and look incredulous and say things like “I’m sorry.”

I watch a lot of things that make people say “I’m sorry.” (See my posts on "American Idol" and "The Voice.") But people being jerks about other people’s pop culture preferences is a huge pet peeve of mine. Why can’t we all just like what we like? We’re not hurting anybody except maybe my boyfriend when he gets stuck sitting through “America’s Next Top Model.”

Plus, if I just told you I like something, what makes you think your snarky comment about said thing is going to go over well? Know your audience!

Anyway, it’s fun to like things. I plan to write about stuff I like as much as stuff I don’t like, and I hope we can all just be cool about that. Maybe we can make liking stuff the new “not liking stuff.”

Join my cause by listing some stuff you like that isn't cool to like.
