Last night, I went out for some beers for a friend's birthday. Upon returning home, I caught my husband in the middle of one of his guilty pleasures. No, he was not masturbating. He was watching Glee. I swear, he would have been less embarrassed should I have caught him jacking off with Marie Clare magazine.
It got me thinking about guilty pleasures. Things we enjoy that we really shouldn't and/or are embarrassed for enjoying. We all have them! The best part is figuring out what they are because, per the name, they are usually pretty damn funny.
One of my personal favorites is a glass of good red wine, a cigarette, a balcony, and some good bad music. You know the stuff I'm talking about, Glee. Yes, Glee soundtracks are my current guilty pleasure music. The kind of music you don't normally opt to blog/talk about because it makes you feel a bit lame. Ah well, it's a big jump up from my Mariah Carey Guilty pleasure music phase in the late 90s. Feel free to judge me, I deserve it.
I also LOVE good bad tv and reruns. You put on the second episode of the first season of Friends and I'm there. Old school Saved By The Bell, I'm totally on it. And I really dig bad 80s movies and horribly nauseating romantic comedies. I buy their story every single time.
And now that I've shared my guilty pleasures with you, don't I sound kind of lame and annoying. Or Fabulous and free spirited if you look at things like I do.
So this has brought me to the rational question of: What are your guilty pleasures? What do you do when nobody is looking? And don't say stalking Facebook friends. If everyone is doing it, it really doesn't count.
