Top 10 Guilty Pleasures

Was thinking about this earlier today – here are my top 10 guilty pleasures. Share a couple of yours.

  1. The Philadelphia Phillies – The worst franchise in pro-sports history. Will more than likely lose their 10,000 game of their history next year. But I can’t stop watching (and hoping I get another World Series – my greatest sports joy was watching them win as a 12 year old).
  2. 80′s music – I know it can be cheesy and I know it can be stupid but I don’t care. When Everybody Wang Chung Tonight comes on, I’m singing along.
  3. Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire series – Kind of sexy, very light, and very entertaining. Harris has a very smart, but not so serious vampire mythology. Now don’t mistake me saying it’s light and not so serious as saying it’s trivial – it’s anything but. There’s everything you expect – death, sci fi, sex, but in a way that makes it all seem possible
  4. TLC’s What Not to Wear – I love Stacy and Clinton. And this show is interesting without requiring too much brain power. (I also want Stacy and Clinton to be having a little something going on the side – I know he’s gay, but I don’t care).
  5. Professional Wrestling – I really don’t watch this much any more, but I love the drama; it’s like a soap opera for boys. Funny thing is I don’t care too much for the actual wrestling.
  6. How I met your mother – This show is funny, light, and disposable. Neil Patrick Harris makes this show.
  7. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy – I alternate between loving and mildly interested but how can you not love the anchor fight scene?
  8. Smirnoff Ice & Michelob Ultra – SI goes down so easy and MU is so crisp and refreshing.   I’m kind of a beer snob that loves this crap.
  9. George W. Bush – it’s more of a perverse pleasure, but seeing this failure fall flat on his face gives me the opportunity to say to everyone that voted for him not once but twice “I told you so – not once, but twice you moron!”
  10. Tastykakes – a true guilty pleasure because they’re so good going down, but you feel so guilty afterwards.

    I think the only one I have is the television show 7th Heaven. My husband laughs his ass off at me for watching it. I know it’s pretty cheesy and bad – but I still love it. ;)

    Oh and in reference to your GWB guilty pleasure…..most people that I know that voted for him (twice) still think he’s a good president…etc ugh

    I started watching How I met your mother about a month ago. It’s a cool show. I think Barney is my favorite character on that show and maybe the girl who played Willow on Buffy. But it’s not one of my guilty pleasures.

    Here are a few of my guilty pleasures:
    Driving above the speed limit, maybe 10-15 mph above.

    Listening to a lot of slow, mellow songs,mostly oldies. A lot of kids my age (early 20s), listen to rap, hip hop, and all the recent bands. I listen to some recent stuff like Rob Thomas and Nickelback, and some new music like Imogen heap. But I’m an oldies girl at heart.

    Watching action movies – I like Die Hard, The Rock, Gone in Sixty Seconds, Bond Films, Batman Begins…

    Wow – I can’t believe I missed action movies. Love them as long as they’re not overly stupid. Kristen and I have Bad Movie Saturday Nights every week.

    The Phils aren’t guilty

  • Spencer

    Most of the time they’re not a pleasure, yet I still watch.

    Supernatural…pretty, pretty dumb boys chasing all manner of ghosts and demons in a muscle car to a classic rock soundtrack. The CW: Free to be…guilty.

    I was going to say I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, but Pro wrestling? Hehe.

    But really, I have nothing I feel guilty about liking.

  • Spencer

    Yeah, yeah – I know. Do you want me to pick your guilty pleasures for you (So You Think You Can Dance)? ;)

  • Tom

    Clinton is gay?

  • Spencer

    Yeah – you’ve always thought it – it’s just that you want him and Stacy together.
