    I'm not pretentious, really...I only pretend to be.

    1) I hate smoking with a fiery passion. I lose tons of respect for a friend when they pick up the habit, or find when someone I thought was a non-smoker pulls a cigarette/cigar out. Not to say I don't accept people anyway, it's your life and your choice(and actually I feel really rude when someone's smoking around me and I cough or move away.. but my lungs seriously can't tolerate it)..but you will most likely be subject to vicious and biting sarcasm and/or honesty on my part, every chance I get.

    2) I laugh at people who are yelling at or trying to intimidate someone else. You look and sound like an idiot. Learn to communicate like an adult, kthnxbai.

    Other than that.. I'm pretty open and tolerant of anything.

    I don't drink wine from the US- I also won't drink white zins and chardonnay because I find them too pedestrian
    I use the word pedestrian to describe wine
    I refuse to use the word American to describe someone from the US because it's only one country- the Americas are 2 continents
    I have an unhealthy hatred of emo kids and music
    I read National Geographic magazine in the gym and Glamour at home so that people will judge me as smart instead of dumb
    I refuse to eat anything breaded
    I pretend not to find celebrity gossip tantalizing
    I smoke gauloises while out (sorry Wolfmaiden- you hate me!)
    I refuse to drink out of plastic cups
    I sleep on 400 count sheets

    sadly, most of these are merely personal preference- I'm not trying to be pretentious!

    I usually do that too. It's mainly out of shyness and I know that my memory isn't perfect, so in restating something, I'm bound to make errors. I also don't think I know very much most of the time.


    I hate it when people smoke - especially when they're attractive and smart (men or women).
    I refuse to listen to the Smashing Pumpkins.
    I refuse to discuss Lord of the Rings - I haven't read the books, I hated the first movie and when I tried reading the first book I just about shot myself in the head with boredom. When my friends start talking about it I feel like throwing up.
    I refuse to endorse games like World of Warcraft.

    1. The following came to mind as soon as I read the above:

    Judgment of Paris (wine) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2. Agree on the Chardonnay and White Zinfandel.

    They're both the wine equivalent of Kool-Aid. That's all right...I'll drink Kool-Aid if that's what's available. Preferring red wine doesn't mean I can't be grateful for pink wine when someone offers me a glass.

    Pretension is in the eye of the beholder. (Examples are from page one.)

    Preference unless you've never tried generics, then it's pretension.

    Preference or pretension, depends on the reasoning.
    You bet it is. Congratulations.
