Jrazz's Dumb and Dumber/Xanadu confession over in Thread Killa' got me thinking about guilty pleasures. You know - the things you enjoy but are too embarrassed to admit?

So... what are yours?

Movie

Music

Television

Food

Anything else?

To kick this off, here's a confession - I can't stay away from paranormal shows. EVPs? Cursed objects? Apparitions? I'm SO there.

I think I've shared my LoZ/Video Game addiction with everyone here....

I like reading about theoretical physics. That or a good horror novel will help me get to sleep. They don't bore me... it's relaxing somehow.

TV... well, I was watching Myrtle Manor for a while there.... THAT's pretty bad.

So between that, D&D and Xanadu, I think I'm all confessed out for now.

Chocolate, lots of it. When I start eating it I just don't eat a little and I always feel guilty when I do it.

I like junky reality tv a lot, but I don't feel too guilty about that.....well, maybe Honey Boo Boo .

Peanut butter, lettuce, and mayonnaise sandwiches.

I know, it sounds horrible, doesn't it? I happened to stumble across the recipe when I was browsing around on allrecipes. I'll try just about anything once, and it turned out to be something I liked.

Movies - Anything with Channing Tatum. or the Rock. So I'm 20 years older than them - I can still look. The first two Mummy movies. The Incredibles. Megamind. Lots of other kids movies. Disney movies. Never grew out of them.

Food - potato chips. I don't think I will ever be able to entirely give them up. I love Cap'n Crunch cereal but I only buy it once a year or so. I wouldn't feed it to my kids when they were little but it's still my fave.

TV - Price is Right.

Computer games - the hidden object ones, match 3, sudoku. I like to download the 60 minute freebies, play them, delete them, repeat.

Music - Addicted to Love, Robert Plant - for some reason, I just love that song.

Reading - romantic suspense novels. Love Nora Roberts. I read a ton of other things, but I still like these. It's embarrassing!

I don't have too many (that I'll admit to )

I live anything supernatural. Even the show. My town has a paranormal group that I've wanted to volunteer with. I been to psychics/mediums (some info has been accurate)

I love the diner dash games, too. Meta, if you like those you should try Turbo Pizza & Turbo Subs, if you haven't already.

I think that's it. I'm pretty boring

Guiltiest pleasure is TV, by far.

I watch so much trash TV, it's sad. But I save it and watch it on weekends like this past one where it rained the whole time.

I'm a good parent in that I don't expose my children to my nasty Bravo and TLC shows too much. LOL!

Of course I have none!

Ok, I'll admit to: good chocolate (especially truffles) , eating ice cream out of the carton (among other desserts), online video games, ET, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Snow White, I'm into psychics too and have had psychic experiences myself.

See, I told you I have none! Hey, I'm retired and live alone. What can I say?

And, losfer, xpos eats pb and Miracle Whip sandwiches. The lettuce would make it too healthy for him.

I kind of like to portray myself as an intelligent person who has it all together, even with my kids. I can do it all!!

But..I don't. Then, once I hear something relating to my bad tv and celeb gossip habit - I must comment, losing all creditability.

I 'like' to think I'm both smart and on top of things...but I'm not. LOL!!!

DD used to LOVE Sailor Moon. In fact she thought she was Sailor Moon from about 3-5 years old

My understanding is there was two versions. An americanized kid version and a Japanese mature version? She only ever watched the Sailor Moon that was ok for kids.

Movie - Flash Gordon I saw it three times in the movie theater when it was originally released. I also bought a 45 of the theme song.

Music - Sound track from the movie version of A Chorus Line. Love the look on my kids' faces when I start singing along. I usually crank it when I'm home alone and cleaning the house. Oh, and Barry Manilow.

Television - True crimes shows on ID Investigations. The first thing I did when I was unemployed right after Thanksgiving was watch every episode of Wicked Attraction that was on Netflix. I am now watching Cold Blood on my Kindle when I am running on the treadmill at the gym.

Food - I like to pour hot fudge over ice cream in the carton. My theory is that I don't want to have to wash a bowl. Now I want to do that using a frozen Thin Mint as a spoon. I need to find a girl scout...

Books - True crime novels (think Ann Rice), mystery/thrillers (Patrica Cornwell, Jonathan Kellerman) or romance books (Harlequin, historical bodice rippers).

AND I PROUDLY DRINK WINE FROM A BOX as long as it's not Franzia. Heck, I've even had wine with a screw top. (Sorry, Jrazz! )

I've even had wine with a screw top.

A very good friend of mine is a liquor salesman and a wine rep for a big west coast winery - he said screw tops are actually BETTER than cork. It's just getting the public to accept that is difficult.

So drink that screw top wine - it will be fresher! CHEERS!

Guilty pleasure is trash, TRASHY, trash ass TV; like a lot of Bravo and TLC garbage.

I also an a celeb gossip whore.

I especially hate the Kardashians; Kimye in particular...but follow it all pretty religiously to be an informed hater. Wha...?! Yes, this is true! I hated her Met Gala ensemble!

Bad TV and shitty celeb gossip are habits.

Mmm, Nutella...

Speaking of guilty pleasure foods......ramen. Sodium-rich, nutrition-absent, ginger-flavored ramen with frozen veggies... *ducks*

Since I had a forced vacation (computer needed rebuilding) I had to decide what exactly to do with my half day off.

Movie - I apparently love Bridget Jones Diaries movies and Richard Pryor movies.

Music - music that makes me want to dance in the car. And I do!

Television - French cooking, especially Laura Calder's shows

Food - Give me a cheeseburger, onion rings, and a chocolate shake from Culvers please! It has All the food groups.
