I have a few guilty pleasures. Movies like Hall Pass is one of them. We saw it last night. I feel the need to apologize immediately for enjoying it as much as I did. It was brainless, often disgusting, usually immoral, and I couldn’t help but laugh like a palsied hyena. It was one of the most demoralizing moments in my life when I told my editor I had seen Wedding Crashers on the big screen twice. Yes twice. I did penance by watching Dr. Zhivago.
Another little guilt trip I like to entertain is cookie dough. Schwans chocolate chip, straight out of the freezer. Why fire up the oven? You can’t improve on perfection.
Naps. I can’t tell you how many times people have awakened me by saying, “I know you’re awake cuz you’re smiling.” Of course I was smiling-I was sleeping in the middle of the day!
Long bubble baths with Roarke. You know Roarke…he’s J.D. Robb’s male protagonist. Her Eve Dallas is an interesting, multi-faceted character, of course, but she doesn’t inspire bubble baths and conversations spoken long afterward using a bad Irish accent. Roarke on the other hand… (This is how I picture him. Don’t ask me why he can’t keep his shirt on in my fantasies.)
Boots. I have a boot fetish. I’m not sure when this started, but I drool over all things leather. Stiletto heels, Uggs, flats, corks, pointy toes, open toes. Don’t even get me started on thigh highs. I love them all. Although if you can strap spurs on them they get extra points.
Oh, spurs! This one might go past fetish and into super weird fetish, but I LOVE spurs. Here’s the kind Hubby Man got me for my birthday. They’re called jingle bob spurs. They make the coolest sound when you walk. Note: These spurs have never actually shared space with a horse. They like to just hang out by my pc with a couple belt buckles and my barrel racing hat. If I could wear them in the bathtub while reading Robb, eating cookie dough and falling asleep in the bubbles I could probably forego movies like for quite some time.
So that’s my list. How about you? What are the six socially unredeemable things you enjoy the most?
