It’s been a while since we had a Guilty Pleasures thread, so I thought I’d contribute to the new year with a new poll! What are the things you enjoy that you’d be slightly-to-extremely embarrassed to be caught enjoying? I’ll start!
Threesome, with Stephen Baldwin, Lara Flynn Boyle and Josh Charles. It’s just NOT a good film, but it takes me to a certain place and time. I laugh and I cry.
1970s AM pop and hillbilly, shit-kickin’ country. The soundtrack to Evita… I sing along, I dance, and sometimes, when I’m SURE there are no witnesses, I use a kitchen whisk as a microphone.
I don’t actually have any guilty pleasures here, I don’t think. I’m not much of a television watcher and while I’m not snobby about it, I don’t get the appeal of most of it. I will confess to once, a long time ago, sobbing over an episode of Webster.
You know that fruit dip made out of marshmallow fluff and cream cheese? I eat it with a spoon when no one’s looking. I also have an unnatural fondness for those pizza puff things they sell at conenience stores, that end up half gooey, undercooked dough and half unidentifiable meatlike substance/greasy orange cheeselike substance. And I steal mushrooms out of cooked dishes.
ElfQuest. Historical romances. Series mysteries. And I’m dumb enough to keep stacks of them out where people can see them, thereby destroying all my intellectual pretensions.
I’m addicted to thrift stores, in like a true shopping addiction. I get antsy if I can’t go, and even though I don’t actually spend a lot of money, I do sometimes hide my purchases. I’m a smart thrift shopper, but I am a committed one. (Or should be committed.)
I’m sure I’ll think of more! Your turn!
