It's that time of year where, if you're anal or watched too much Seinfeld or grew up in the nineties, you feel it is necessary to rank or merely arrange various experiences you've had into categorical lists, for the benefit of your own neurotic impulses!
So, without any ado, here is a list of things people didn't think that much about in 2005, but should have:
This movie was really funny, but no one watched it. Therefore, very few people thought of or discussed it with friends and family.
2.) Natascha McElhone
She is so unbelievably gorgeous I can't stand it. But really, have you ever heard anybody talk about her?
Besides the exception of War of the Worlds and Scientologists, people have really just almost completely stopped talking about aliens.
4.) Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, and Johnny Appleseed
No one really talks about American folk heroes anymore. Or it could be that I'm just not hanging around enough fourth graders.
5.) The guy I watched get shot and who presumably died yesterday in the Target parking lot
I've yet to find a single local news story covering this, even though a man was shot and killed in a very public place with lots of witnesses. I ask you, why aren't more people talking about this? As my brother suggested to me earlier today, it could be that I left before the MIB arrived and erased everyone's memories. In which case, I witnessed some sort of alien either killing or being killed. And that brings us back to the fact that more people should be talking about aliens, but aren't.
6.) Ska Music
Wait, sorry. Shouldn't be on the list. This is a topic that people both a) haven't been talking about and b) should not ever talk about.
7.) Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
I'm pretty sure this show is still airing new episodes, but when was the last time you heard somebody say, "Hey, did you see that guy win $250,000 yesterday on Millionaire?" I bet it's been awhile.
More will come later. Suggestions?
