Does anyone really like brunch?
NYMagazine posted this great interview today with 30 Rock's Robert Carlock where he basically said that brunch is this silly, invented idea of fun and he doesn't understand the point of it. (you can read all about it here: http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/05/robert_carlock_showrunner_tran.html).
I'm pretty much inclined to agree with him. I've never seen the point of brunch. I'd rather sleep in, roll out of bed super late in my pajamas, and just eat a bowl of cereal while reading the New York Times. I have things to do on Sunday and therefore don't have time to sit around for hours in a leisurely manner sipping mimosas. Also, if I really want eggs or hash browns, I can just make it myself.
So, does anyone really like brunch? Or am I alone in my disdain and apathy?
