Weekly Geeks – Guilty Pleasures



This week's task was sent in by Maree of Just Add Books, who's been thinking about those things that we do when we're not reading or blogging. Here's what Maree has to say:

The comments on this post of mine got me thinking about guilty pleasures. Non-reading guilty pleasures.

Mine at the time the post was written was American Idol. Particularly one contestant, as you can see. By now, the show is over, and the results are in, one way or another. But my inappropriate addiction to Idol got me thinking about the things we do that we love but that we don't like to admit to--our guilty pleasures. Mine is reality TV, which scratches that small, dark place that we all have.

So. Weekly Geeks, we're going into the confessional this week.

What's your non-reading guilty pleasure?
Trashy TV?
Trashier movies?
Junk food?


This weeks Weekly Geeks topic is about Guilty Pleasures. I have had so much discussion recently on some variation of this topic that this week i will only past this link onto one of the other post that deals with this…

For people who follow this blog and lurkers – you all know my guilty pleasures – My Fantasy Art, My Closet full of shoes and handbags and my Silly read.

I only do the news channel so i am always on the outside when people talk about TV shows. I had to make time for my reading and the TV shows had to go -

All my discussions can be found on the Link – DISCUSSION POINT

For those reader who have taken part – have fun refreshing yourself with what we have gotten up to over the past few months – you might have missed a topic.

For new readers – there is something of my guilty pleasure in almost all the post on DISCUSSION POINT…

Well, SOME of those are not really guilty pleasures, I hope? LOL

Life would be too dull without our guilty pleasures!

I am the opposite, I rarely listen to news.. so I'm not up to date with worldly events.. news just depresses me.. I mean literally :)
So I prefer watching drama series and comedy sitcoms ;)

Hey gnoegnoe

I am loving a lot of thing.. the shoes and the bag definately..

Fantasy art - a good couple years now, but not been to a convention yet..

And the Silly Reads - well books are my passion, silly or not..

A girl after my own heart... I love them..

Don't i know it..

Ms. D..

That is so my mom... no current affairs at all and loves her comedy and some reality show...

I can hear her giggling into the night - always make me smile.

Shoes! How many pairs do you think you have?

Erotic Horizon on 30 May 2009 at 15:36 said...

Hi Jodie..

Easily 40 pairs... and I love, the fact that I have so much choice when I need a pair..

Takes longer to get dress, but I wouldn't have it any other way..

My guilty pleasure right now is my addiction to Mafia and Vampire Wars in Facebook. I've always laughed at my Hubby and kids for their hours online playing World of Warcraft and now I find myself playing these games when I get even just a few free minutes. I can't believe I'm so into them.


Erotic Horizon on 30 May 2009 at 18:34 said...

Hey Lily..

I know about the WOW addiction - at one point I had to cancel the subscription... the boys were at it all the time...

I have no co-ordination for those sort of thing... I am well impressed..

I wrote about my DVD collection.

Erotic Horizon on 31 May 2009 at 17:16 said...

Thanks Pussreboots

Will be over to check out your list...

I adore handbags, too, but can't justify buying them (finances are tight), so I have to satisfy myself with a less expensive pleasure. :) I'd love to have a huge shoe and bag collection though, so I'm a wee bit jealous...

I get you hon - since the dollars are so tight - i have to be creative and pinch myself sometimes not to rush out and buy a new one...

Hi there,

I have tried to get to the discussion, but cannot seem to get the page to load :o( Must try again tomorrow. This post just to say that I've been here.

Thanks for stopping by Louise... I hope you get the chance to open the link..

Have a great Weekly Geek week.

My boyfriend once asked me how many pairs of black shoes I owned. I told him "not enough."
