    Nice list Macro. Among the things I don't get:

    Nascar. I have to deal with traffic all day. Why would I watch yet more cars going around in a circle on my day off?

    Golf. Very boring. And I have to listen to SportsCenter and hear about them as if they are athletes? No way. Golf is just recreation like bowling.

    Fear Factor. Ok so they are eating worms. And why should that entertain me?

    Aerosmith. They had a nice run in the late 70's. Then comes the new "MTV Aerosmith" where every song sounds the same.

    New Orleans. It's dirty and smells like stale beer and urine. Give me Vegas any day.

    A bonus weekend would include another body for warmth.

    I was nutty enough to go ice fishing too. Sometimes I'd go by myself. Nothing weirder than walking out on a desolate pond and hearing the eery creaking and crackling of the ice.

    I don't get:

    Why Britney Spears is popular. She's trash, and there are plenty of other pretty girls in the world.

    NASCAR, same reason as Phoenix.

    Wanting to live in a cold weather climate

    People who are mean to homeless people

    Not wanting to be employed

    Cats. Why do people want these as pets. They only want to be around you like 30 seconds a day and the rest of the time they look at you like you're invading their privacy.

    Oprah. Just don't get why she's so poplular, she's rude to most of her average audience members from what I've seen. Even the ones she does stuff for, she's acts like she'd rather not do it.

    Michael Jackson. You make me believe in aliens.

    "Designer" purses: Why in the hell would you spend $600 on a purse? You can buy one that looks similar for $40.

    Phish. Never understood the attraction. Decent instrumental play, but lyrics are terrible and the concert atmosphere sucks.

    Sushi and caviar. Raw fish and fish eggs? Ich. I'll take mine beer battered over and open flame by the cabin, thanks.

    I'm going to wrap it up now. I could go on, and on, and on, but I won't.

    I was never a cat person. Really wasn't. I'm all about having a yellow lab some day. We raised Labs as working dogs. (Well, my dad did until we pampered the heck out of them.)

    Only 2 cats I ever cared about Tammy Fay Baker .... shortened to Baker once I learned HIS true identity. Don't know his history or his age. Homely son of a gun. Interesting how he came to adopt me as his human. Awesome shelter cat .... good mouser, great companion. Big fat orange sloth. Rest in peace .... the chipmunk tricked you. I know the truth.

    Current cat. Cannot get close enough to you. She acts like a puppy. Hikes through the woods with me. Sprawls out against my back at night. My biological heating pad. My living shawl. I just learned that she likes my chili. That's cool!

    (Nice thing about cats is that you can leave them for a weekend, unlike dogs where you have to stop home before you go out.)

    "Seinfeld"
    "Friends"
    "Everybody Loves Raymond" (I don't)
    blogging
    eschewing fluoridation
    habañero pepper products
    not signaling turns (Good call, folks! )

    Honestly, I can't find anything to disagree with in the original list. These just happen to float near the top of my list.
