I'm back at work today. This is the first day since her birth that I've been away from Harper and I'm sad to say that I'll be away from her quite a bit this week. Tomorrow night we've got our first rehearsal in more than a month and Wednesday we're recording a live studio performance for NPR in Austin. All of that plus work adds up. Thankfully, my mom is in town to lighten the load on Leah, which is nice, but I'm sure Leah will be just fine on her own too. She's a strong one.
I'm was sitting here listening to one of my favorite bands, The Smiths, and trying to think of what to blog about, (my last two have felt a little heavy so I'm shooting for something lighter) when I remembered how much I hated the Smiths when I first heard them.
So now what this blog is about today: things you hate and then grow to love.
The ones that come to mind are:
The Smiths, Starflyer 59, Batman, Superman, The very idea of DC comics, South Park, buffalo wings, boxer shorts, the Beach Boys, Neil Young.
I can't think of any movies that I originally hated but I can think of some that I, initially, really didn't want to see and ended up enjoying such as, Fight Club, Gattaca, the new Star Trek (which I finally saw yesterday and is every bit as good as you've heard it is), American Beauty, etc.
Its weird how many of those things not only became things I enjoy but some of my absolute favorite things on Earth. What are yours?
