What's your guilty pleasure?(26 posts)

What's your guilty pleasure?js5280

Okay we all have that vice which we know we should try to get rid of because of personal and/or public disapproval. But you know what, you just don't care! So what's your guilty pleasure? Really a closet N'SYNC fan? Big into dwarf tossing? Obsessive masturbation? A love of baby seal fur coats? Points for creativity, using your real name, and if people can remark, "Oh yeah, I can definately see you being into {your vice here}!"

I'm indulging mine right now. . .The #2 combo meal from McDonald's. That's right the 2 cheesebuger value meal! My drink is Diet Coke, doesn't that make it healthy? I probably get one every week or two. Forgive me Father Lance for I have sinned. . .

Where to begin? There's a corner store across the street from my apartment that sells Haagen Dazs bars. It's so close I can go there in my slippers. It's like having a basement fridge filled with ice cream and candy bars.

Oh - and I shower before spin class. Is that so wrong?

The shower's not the problem--the spin class is!

A little hot fudge and some peanuts on the bottom of the dish. Fill it about 1/3 full of DQ soft serve. More hot fudge and peanuts. Another 1/3 of DQ soft serve. More fudge and peanuts. Soft serve with the DQ whirl. More fudge and peanuts plus whipped cream and a cherry on top.

Then they give you a spoon-OH MY!

There is a DQ about a 20 mile ride from here open all year round. Maybe tomorrow!!!
The ride makes it OK and should remove all guilt.IAM

Funny how you mentioned the "Whirl".

Secret DQ Tip: Flip the server a few bucks and they'll get some "Cake Crunch" for you.

I have a lot of guilty pleasures, and I sue am pretty guilty about having them. I love listening to certain songs by N'Sync, Westlife, the Backstreetboys, A1, and Britney Spears! Yes, embarassing, very embarassing.

I also eat burgers DAILY, I eat 3 if they're 'small' burgers like regular cheesburgers from Mcdonald's.

I am surprised I haven't gained weight...thanks to my bike.

Anyone out there listen to cheesy bubblegum groups?
Only the guilty ones are truly pleasurable!Spinchick

1. Starbucks Java Chip ice cream

2. "Wayne's World" - I've seen it 6 times. "Dude, if you're gonna spew, spew in this cup."

3. Cheezy 70's disco. KC & the Sunshine Band and E,W&F are my personal favs.

Spongebob Squarepants, Bugs Bunny, Dexter's Laboratory, Simpsons, Roadrunner and Coyote, Powerpuff Girls, Scooby Doo, and dozens of others. I'm a cartoon addict. I like to pretend that I watch cartoons only because my four year old daughter watches them. However, I watch Spongebob even when she's asleep. Somebody help me!
Spongebob rules... what is it about that show? nmSpinchick

Remember those fun jawbreakers that change colors as they melt? I bought some for my son last month, and am now addicted. They put some secret chemical in them that makes you crave them all night. Damn you willy wonka!! On the plus side, they are fat free, but full of empty calories.

Hmmm...where to start?

1. Peeking at my wife in various stages of dress/undress
2. Strawberry shortcake sundae from Dairy Queen
3. Steak - medium rare w/onions & mushrooms
4. Relatively obscure prog-metal band (Dream Theater)
5. King of the Hill and Malcolm in the middle

Cheese - any & all types, I love the stuff despite it's deadly nature (I'll volunteer for stranding on the desert island, so long as I have Maytag blue with me!)
Pringles! I can make an entire tube disappear in about 15 min. Beer. Single-barrel bourbon (Elijah Craig...oh yeah!) Veal. Lamb. Steak. Pepperoni. Rhode Island-style calamari.

1) absolute rule in my house - lolling around in bed until we feel like getting up on Saturday and Sunday. sometimes reading the paper and sometimes just staring out the window and visiting. sometimes we get up and feed the horses and go back. Nice personal extravagance.
2)spending money on whatever I want whenever I want it. I like gadgets, toys, tools, bikes. No limits. my wife likes horses, tack. No limits. We both like art - ditto. Good things we both analyze purchasing decisions to death or we'd be broke.

Nothing like a 3rd person shooter to get out some frustration.

No need to flame people here. I'm ananomously killing countless teenagers all over the internet.

that pretty much sums it up hehe.

It really depends though. I have "gum" periods where I buy lots of gum.

I love techno, trance stuff that not too many people like around here.

Doing something in my bed!!! I donno how disapproving the public would be though.

Uhm...I crave cheeseburgers (dripping in fat) that were cooked evenly on like a flat oven, not the grill style that leaves the burnt marks on the meat. I definitely don't get enough fat cheeseburgers in my diet.

I could go on forever.

by the way, single meat cheeseburgers from McDonalds suck, if you get one, get at least a double. You'd still be able to squish it down pretty well.

peace

woof the habit dog.

Unfortunately, too many of them: computer hearts and solitaire, peanuts and chocolate chips, crossword puzzles, fried pork skins (no carbs tho!), watching Survivor, MAD TV, chili cheeseburgers from the Char-Grill in Raleigh, NC. ... Micky-mac: the Simpsons is high culture in my book. I have a friend (a PhD college prof) who has taped every single episode for years.
