Plain black coffee for me except for an occasional proper capuccino. have to find a Café Nero when in the UK or drink water. I don't get Starbucks, Costa and their ilk. Don't like tea except maybe a darjeeling once or twice a year.
I don't get the obsession to be in touch with everyone on twitter or endless texting and yet not talking to the people in front of you. Went to an annual reunion of old friends - all now in their 60s and IT types - and every single one of them had their mobile and/or i-Pad and/or tablet to hand. Except me. Haven't seen each other in some cases for a year so loads to catch up on and they're all looking at the screen in their hand!
I don't get "celebrity", squid ink, oysters, football tribalism, religion (especially extremist or evangical. I can take care of my own conscience thank you), zumba (why? you could be dancing instead), begonias, euphorbias, aubergines, people who think gardening is infradig, Socialism with a capital S, Fascism, paintings of children with tears (remember those from the 60s?), cruelty to people, animals and plants (bonsai).................
