This just in: Cheesy people have more fun

I got another terrific response from Bobo in NYC, who had this to say in response to my hipster diatribe:

cheesy people have more fun. i believe this.

of all of the classifications and definitions that label and segregate us (the hipsters, the artists, the punk rockers, the nerds, the hippies, etc.) i think the cheeseballs have the most fun of all. they're feelers. they express joy and delight in things most of us are to shy to admit to liking because it's not cool. i aim to embrace my inner cheeseball who i know lives within. i am going to feed her all the obvious and trivial and unsophisticated pleasures her heart desires. if she wants to rent Steel Magnolias, i'm not gonna stop her. if she wants to turn up Against All Odds by mr. Phil Collins when it comes on the radio, how can I deny her that when she loves it so - especially when Phil is BEGGING his lost lady love to turn around and see him cry, to take a look at him now, take a good look at him NOW. and if she wants to read that Cosmo article on how to dress 10 pounds thinner on the train home, she's not going to hide the cover under her Time magazine (which she steals from the office - she's cheesy but she's no angel). she's devoted to PBS, but sometimes the cheeseball wants to watch Girlfriends on the UPN. And why the hell not. Why the hell not indeed. Girlfriends is a hoot and a half. It's more fun than her usual diet of WWII documentaries and NOVA specials. And life could stand to be a little less serious sometimes. A little less profound.

Amen sister. Keep on keepin' it real.

i think cheezsters or anyone who is not self-aware probably have more fun, less stressed, etc.

But theyre cheesy.

Cheesy people definitely have more fun. But so do dogs and cats.
