Did you see the #tweetmyunpopularopinion hashtag trending last week? Well, I have lots of unpopular opinions and they will take more than 140 characters and thus, a blog post was born. I don't try to not like the "cool" things but I find that it happens to me pretty often.
Unpopular Opinion #1: I don't like Johnny Depp... or Jack Sparrow
Sure, I loved Edward Scissorhands as a kid, but every other weird Johnny Depp/Tim Burton collaboration since? I'm not buying what they're selling. Have I sat through Sweeney Todd or Alice in Wonderland or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? NO. No desire. Sorry to judge a book by its cover, but I'm just not interested. I did see the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Everyone loved it. I thought it was boring. People go crazy for Johnny Depp and I just... don't get his appeal.
Unpopular Opinion #2: I'm not a fan of the Real Housewives of Anywhere
Sorry bloggers, I know this is blasphemy but I'm not a fan of watching loud, rude, rich ladies. I watched some of the original OC and NY Housewives and while they were okay (if there was nothing else on and I couldn't take a nap), it was never my favorite thing to watch on Bravo. These days, I stay far, far away so I need a lot of y'all to give some backstory to those gifs you post, kay?
Unpopular Opinion #3: The Big Bang Theory isn't funny
I KNOW I KNOW, we probably can't be friends anymore but y'all... how many "the girl is a dumb blonde/the guy is a cerebral dork" jokes can one show make? I have tried to watch this show a few times and it doesn't even make me crack a smile. People love it and I just don't get the appeal. Same goes for Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother. I tried to like HIMYM, really I did, but the jokes are just so repeated from every other sitcom ever that I can't get on board.
Unpopular Opinion #4: Fountain Diet Coke is yummy
I hated Diet Coke with a passion for the longest time until I decided to try it from a fountain drink machine and my world was changed. I know most people prefer the "Real Thing" or think Diet Dr. Pepper is the best diet drink around, but I love me some Diet Coke.
Unpopular Opinion #5: Cheesecake is kind of gross
Do you eat it cold or room temperature? The texture is off. The fruit is always too sweet. It has about half a million calories per bite. Am I supposed to like this? Well, I kind of don't. Unless it's Junior's Cheesecake that my father-in-law orders from Brooklyn every year at Christmas and then I will make an exception. Have you tasted that stuff? It's amazing. Pretty sure it's a million calories per bite.
Unpopular Opinion #6: Dressing up for Halloween isn't really fun
Fun fact: Halloween is also my birthday. Other fun fact: I don't find dressing like a sexy "insert profession here" one day a year fun, either. Blame it on the fact that I spent my youth getting candy from classmates for my birthday, but I am just not a Halloween fan. Crazy, I know. But really when you think about it, isn't it a tiny bit insane that as children we dressed up and banged on strangers' doors for candy? (For the record, I have nothing against Halloween. I just don't care for it. I have already declared that if there should be children in my household then they will dress up and trick-or-treat, my birthday be damned.) (Also SEXY BERT AND ERNIE? No. Just no.)
Unpopular Opinion #7: Vampires are dumb
Twilight? The Vampire Diaries? Dracula? No interest in any of them. Sparkly mystery men who never age? Just not my idea of a good time. I prefer my men nice and mortal and not bloodthirsty, thank you very much. However, The Count from Sesame Street gets a pass. He's pretty cool. Gotta love a guy with an accent.
Unpopular Opinion #8: Beer is the grossest thing ever
I really wish I liked beer. It's readily available and usually cheaper than wine or a cocktail. There are many kinds and breweries are so much fun. Buuuuut I think it tastes awful. I've tried dark and light, fruity and not, with and without food and it all tastes terrible to me. I know that I am of the age where I should have acquired the taste by now but it's just not happening. Maybe after I turn 30...
So, those are a few of the unpopular opinions that I defend. Where do you disagree? What are some of your unpopular opinions? Come on, I can't be the only one who isn't a Real Housewives fan...
