Brief burst of negative thinking

Yeah. So I've been trying to think more positively these days. I think this partly-sunny disposition works for me. But obviously, I'm just not me unless I am bitching about something.

If you know me, you know I have those things I just can't stand. Things like:

  • Vegan/vegitarian food named after meat products (Dude. If you hate eating animals so much, then I don't want to see you cramming your face with veggie sausage or veggie chicken nuggets. Or at least make Morningstar Farms change the damn name.)
  • Scientologists
  • Evangelicals
  • Tom Cruise
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt
  • The vocal stylings of Anne Murray
  • Soundgarden (Black Hole Sun. Nuff said. One of the worst songs ever made.)
  • Manheim Steamroller Christmas music (Do they make other music besides Christmas music? I'm not sure, but that crap makes my ears bleed.)
  • Chick lit
  • Adding people you have never conversed with to your MySpace "friends"

I know there are more but the whole point of this exercise was to name what may be my newest pet peeve.

Dane Cook.

I do not understand why Dane Cook is so popular. It's like Ashton Kutcher doing stand-up in a lot of ways. And he's everywhere. He's hosting the season premiere of SNL this weekend (I won't even get into my thoughts on the direction SNL is taking. And I'm one of those who watches it even when it sucks). He hosted it last year. It blew (ok...I did sort of laugh at his monologue but the rest of the ep blew).

I guess Dane Cook has a zillion MySpace friends or something, too. And he was rumored to be doing Jessica Simpson. Maybe this how a person makes it nowadays. Not sure.

I just want someone to explain to me the appeal of Dane Cook. I will sit. I will listen. I will not interject. Just someone please tell me why Dane Cook is everywhere. Thanks.

And I guess to balance out my list of things I loathe, I'll include some random things I really like:
  • Slipping into just-out-of-the-dryer jeans
  • Battlestar Galactica (The new one. Duh.), Entourage, America's Next Top Model
  • Ice-T & Coco
  • Creed Barton
  • Anna Nicole Smith (Say what you want but that woman is a survivor who's done a whole lotta living)
  • Pole dancing
  • Water

Maybe I was stretching a bit, but I would like water even if it wasn't the essence of all earthly life.

Um, Sorry.

Soundgarden is one of the top 5 bands in history. But of course all women hate soundgarden and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
