Definitely getting drunk. A know a little alcohol is okay…that is so not what I’m talking about!

late night Sex and the City reruns. Seen them all – don’t know why I CAN’T get to sleep each night until I’ve watched both of them. My sleep schedule is messed up as a result. Pretty benign guillty pleasure though – the diet Coke of guilty pleasures!

Biscuits/Cookies. And not just one or two. Start the packet you just have to finish them. Even if the rest of the family needs their share :D

@timothykinney Suggest immediate backpedaling. “Honey, I didn’t read the part about “terrible for you in some way . . .” :)

Sometimes I eat after dinner, which I usually try not to do.

@marina Oh gee. You should feel guilty, you rebel you. :)

@TF Well, I also sometimes succumb to chocolate or other sugary things. Mostly, they are habits I have a handle on. It’s the after-dinner snack that gets me! I had wilder habits in my youth that I struggled with, but they are not an issue now.

Again…...one?? seriously??
Ice cream, crisps, take-away, cocktails, wine, chocolate, cheese, smoking, fluthering, make-up, tanning (?), hair dye, computers, tv…..oh, and full Irish breakfast!!

La_chica_gomela's avatar

oh NO! what’s bad for you about make-up? does it cause cancer now like everything else?

@wildflower: “again…one??” what did you mean?

@LcG
Let’s meet for drinks! my guilty pleasures are out of this world restaurants and drinks (love Moet!) chocolate, ice-cream, hamburguers, fluther, the movie theater! As thinghs are getting harder, I’m trying to reduce my pleasures, but I refuse to abandon them!

She means that if you have only one, is kind of boring, right wildflower?

Perscription pills are great, as is sex. However, a single guilty please? Hard to say. Hmm. Maybe retro video games? I will flat out refuse to drive somewhere if it means I have to spend $20 at the pump to get there, but if I see for example, a fairly new, unfaded SNES on sale somewhere with A/V connectors (not RF Switch), 2 controllers with visible lettering, original power supply for $79.99? I’ll buy it without thinking twice, plus about $6 valued at $3—$15 a piece just to test it.

Then I’ll ask my mother/father to deposit $100 into my bank account because “I needed car repairs done and it dipped into my grocery bill for the month”.

Ooh, another thing (I guess…could be called a guilty pleasure…) buying music. In the past week/two weeks I’ve bought 7 albums and have 7 more on my list of things to get. I love buying music (possibly too much) and it’s costing me a lot seeing as I have to pay for things like driving lessons to and I don’t actually have a job :S

Going out to eat! Gas is way to expensive, and food is these days. :)

@poof The three chief elements of the Spanish Inquisition are fear and surprise. ;)
