Sadly, I'm too old for this shit...
Even six months ago, I loved Spongebob. I have a special place in my heart for good-natured, fun-loving idiots. But my inner idiot seems to have taken a holiday....
2. Most daytime kids programming
In high school, it was Batman: The Animated Series (with it's chillingly awesome noirish opening) and even a little bit of Pokeman. Power Rangers was cool if goofy. Now, the stuff looks contrived, like a copy of a copy of something that's genuinely cool. It's corporate cool. I did get a few miles from the Naked Mole Rat, for some reason.
3. Sugar rushes (except gummi bears)
4. Staying up past midnight on a work night (unless I'm hungry)
5. Short-sleeve button down shirts (although they seem to be popular when you turn 60)
