Guilty Pleasures

Sooo, now that the manuscript for Desire is finished (woo hoo!) and I have a bit more free time, I'll admit I've been watching TV at night instead of writing. What? An author needs some r&r , too. Last night, about 8pm, I was chatting with a good friend and she asks, "Whatcha up to, Jacks?" I cringe and have a momentary crisis of conscience: Do I tell her the truth and embarrass myself or should I dodge the question? I went with the truth...I'm a Dancing with the Stars fan, lol. Ack! I've tried so hard to avoid the reality show 'revolution,' but this show blends two of my favorite things--dancing and sexy men. What's not to like? I loves me some Maks. DWTS is one of my guilty pleasures and I'm not going to hide my love of the show anymore. There, I said it. Whew!

In the spirit of confession, some of my other guilty pleasures include: Justin Timberlake, the Twilight Saga, Janet Evanovich, John Hughes movies, and Family Guy. For me, they're like junk food for the spirit. Maybe they aren't the highest of art forms, but they're fun and they make me smile. Some days, that's the best you can hopeful--a good laugh.

Okay, I took the plunge. Now it's your turn. What guilty pleasure do you indulge in? Inquiring minds wanna know....And no, I don't read the Enquirer...except in line at the grocery store, LOL.

Ha, this is good Jax! You inspired me to write about my own guilty pleasures.

Oh, I love DWTS and AI. What can I say? I am so tired of all the tween/teenager paranormal shows or CSI shows on TV that without these shows, I wouldn't watch TV any more. Sad, but true.

I also love The Big Bang Theory. It never fails to make me laugh. :)

I have other guilty pleasures, but many of them are not for public consumption. (g)

I love me some Maks, too. My guilty pleasures are: chocolate, m/m romance, menage romance, and Celtic Thunder (5 men (4 with Irish accents, 1 with a Scottish accent)--check them out on YouTube.) Yummy!

Oy, here it goes...I love watching Tori & Dean! Pathetic, but it's like watching a train wreck. You want to look away, yet you just can't. And that's all I'm gonna cop-to on this go around. :P
