Weekly Geeks - Confession Time

Hmmm, an interesting twist into the lives of the geeks this week - guilty pleasures. Here's the outline:

So. Weekly Geeks, we're going into the confessional this week.

What's your non-reading guilty pleasure?
Trashy TV?
Trashier movies?
Junk food?

Share with the group. :)

Well, my first guilty pleasure is a reading one that I love and hate all at the same time...Danielle Steel novels. Arg, I just admitted it on my book blog, none of you will ever take me seriously again. I go through these phases where I will read a half dozen of her books all at once and then get so pissed of at them for their trashiness and that I've enjoyed the trashiness, that I don't go near them for another year or so. My addiction/love/hate relationship with them started when I was about 15. They were the first 'grown up' books I read. So blame it on Thurston House for better or for worse.

That's probably my biggest guilty pleasure. 2nd to that would be BBQ Lays Chips and Sour Cream (the real stuff, not the light). I can run through a tube of those like nobody's business and I try not to dwell on that one because I've been really good on quitting that addiction since the fall (with one little slip a little more recently than I'd like)

So there you have it my 2 big confessions all laid out for you, I feel like I should do something rather intellectual now like read Tolstoy while sipping a cappucino (but let's be honest, I've done neither of those either)

I used to read Jackie Collins _ I'm feeling you there.
My potato chip poison of choice is salt n vinegar ...
Happy Weekly Geeks :)

LOL! I've tried to read Danielle Steel, but never could get into any of her books. But like Maree, I also used to read Jackie Collins and I have a large collection of Jackie Collins paperbacks, which i just want to keep and can't seem to get around throwing out. Haven't picked one up in ages, maybe for some light summer reading?

I went through a phase of Thai Sweet Chili crisps - a packet a day. Good times :)

Ahh great guitly pleasures and you have a Dylan Morran quote to end the post - genius.

mmmm... sour cream lays.

And we all can't be full of high-falutin' literature all the time. You like Danielle Steele, I have a weakness for YA princess fantasy novels. It's all the same. :)
