Wednesday Thoughts

"There are two types of people in the world" has got to be one of my all time favorite phrases. You never know how it's going to end, and it almost always puts people into the most ridiculous and truly non-defining groups imaginable.

Just yesterday, I was thinking about the movie "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou" (which is a movie I didn't understood or particularly enjoy) and as I thought about it and how weird it is, the phrase, "there are two types of people in the world..." came into my head in regards to how people either seem to love that movie or hate it. But then I thought, "wait, that can't be right. Are there really only two types of people in the world? And if so, are those the groups?"

Which got me thinking about other "two types" I've heard in my life. Here are some I thought of. (Which of these is the most true?)

...those who can do the Hammer dance, and those who can't.
...those who like South Park and those who don't.
...those who think the Office is funny and those who don't (I'm leaning towards thinking this one is true.)
...those who like Jimmy Buffet and those who don't.
...those who like George Bush and those who don't.
...those who have blogs and those who don't.

What if we were all separated into two groups based on one of these and forced to live together? I wonder if I'd have anything in common with my group besides the fact that we can all do the Hammer dance?

Which group would you be in? Do you have any "there are two types of people..." distinctions of your own?

I'd love to hear them.

Happy Wednesday.

I'd be in the "those who leave comments" group. ;) I might also be in the "those who are stinkin' tired this morning" group, as well as the "those who are going to the mall to return some clothes this afternoon" clique. That last one might be a little specific, but those in the opposing group have nothing to be ashamed of, at least. Unlike the people in the "those who don't like the Office" group. They should really just hide their faces in shame.

What about those who sunburn and those who don't? Today, I'm feeling like the Emperor of the first group. Wowee...I'm feeling the burn and I don't like it. :(

Also, I'd be in the group of people who love "O Brother". I had no idea you didn't! We can't form groups based on that because I'd want to be in your group!! (I'm picturing a dramatic event, similar to when you are picked for a team in gym class and you find your friend gets separated from you, or you number off and think you worked the system and then the teacher switches it up on panic!!)

My two groups are those who think summer movie watching should include "Cloak and Dagger", "Flight of the Navigator, and "War Games" and those who don't. I'm pulling out my copy of "Cloak and Dagger" as soon as I stop typing. I think that this is a very valid separation which leads me to two other groups: those who are young at heart and those who aren't. Are ya with me, maties??

I like to consider myself a commenter of your blog. I had to wash my hair yesterday!

There are two types of people in the world, those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't. That ones from the movie "What about Bob".
