Here are things I like to do that, for some reason or another, I greatly enjoy.

- Washing clothes. Laundry is one of my favorite things to do on the weekend.

- Washing dishes. Not by hand so much, but I really enjoy loading up the dishwasher and putting all the clean silverware and plates back in the cabinets.

- Taking my CDs off the shelf and re-alphabetizing them. It's also a good way to evaluate stuff to sell.

- Bubblewrapping CDs. I am a big fan of packing up stuff that I sell. It's a treat.

- Buying things on sale. I bought 40 bottles of Vitamin Water this week because they were 10 for $10. Now the shelf in my basement looks like a convenience store. I also bought 16 packets of ramen noodles because they were on sale 8 for $1.

- Singing pop songs in falsetto. I was singing Spice Girls' "Wannabe" in the bathroom today.

Tenjo Tenge. I once swore that I'd never watch that anime, but . . . .then I did. And loved it.

I'm a very big fan of Michael Jackson, which annoys the hell out of my co-workers, so whenever they leave the room, I'll start trying to mimic Michael's steps from Beat It, Smooth Criminal, and Billie Jean.

Finally, trading Pokemon with my 10 year old brother. It's always fun.

- Peeling stickers from things (as long as they come off cleanly, or eventually)

- Degrassi (old and new series, I really miss having cable, I might just have to buy them all on DVD. D:)

- Linkin Park (shut up, shut up, shut up.)

- Sailor Moon (I know I'm not alone ;D)

Man if there was ever a sentence that could sum up what it's like to know you, that would be it.

I actually do this a lot as well, but with one additional twist. If I go to a friends house and their CD/DVD rack is messy I apparently feel the need to organize it for them. Some of my friends have awoke in the morning to find their items in ABC order. Of course, everyone has fun taking little jabs at me about.

Jodo Kast Mar 11, 2007

I like to make lists of things that I have and organize those lists in different ways. I currently am thinking about organizing my dvd collection by actor/actress/director. My goal is to not do that. I consider this "organizing" to be unhealthy.

Before I had a computer...I would take my baseball cards and organize them by team. Sometimes I would organize them by position. I spent lots of time sitting down and organizing baseball cards. It felt gratifying.

I like hot showers. They feel so good but are a waste of hot water.

I visit humoron almost every day. That place is sick, but I have to see what the strange people are doing (I do not qualify as "strange". Not even close.)

I take out a sheet of standard college ruled paper and write down dates on the left hand margin. I then write down what I should do on those days. I seldom do what I write down, yet I persist in my efforts.

I come to this site and type messages in these rectangular white spaces. Some sites have different colors, but they are all rectangles. I type messages in those other rectangles as well. Am I doing this for you or for me? Why do I bother? The rectangles will not complain if I disappear. But some may cheer.

My guilty pleasure?

Remaining unkempt, (and I'm freakin' proud of it!).

I haven't gotten a haircut in 5 months, nor have I shaved my beard in ages. I look like frickin' castaway or something.

Yeah, that was one of my guilty pleasures as a student... until my piano teacher took me aside and sternly told me that "appearances mattered", especially on stage. He took my innocence that day...

I thought a guilty pleasure was something a person likes but is too ashamed of to admit, either because it's perceived as unacceptably abnormal by others or goes against the person's own established traits--like picking your nose, or watching a cheesy soap opera or movie even though you know it's really really stupid. A lot of these sound like simply peculiar traits or quirks, some of which are apparently flaunted or otherwise openly shared.

An example of what I consider to be a guilty pleasure of my own is visiting 4chan. It's an awful awful place filled with terrible terrible people, where just about every perversion, bigotry, and idiocy I can't stand are practically the norm. It's so negative and devoid of civility, and frankly I feel it's beneath me, yet I keep going back. And I can't really say why, other than being an okay source for good and/or amusing images.

Fortunately there a few corners on the web like this one that are a pleasure to visit!

Ah well, I'm sure he had your best interest in heart.

mine is the occasional illicit drug, i haven't 'fallen down' hard enough yet to swear them off for good..

JasonMalice Mar 11, 2007

Interesting.

My old guilty pleasure was Myspace, however, I deleted that back in December 2006 and have not looked back since.
I just do not like people.

I can't really think of much else that I am guilty about deriving pleasure from. 
I'm pretty open about everything.

You don't like people in general, or you don't like people on myspace? If you don't like people in general, I would say you have some serious psychological issues that need to be addressed.

edit: Or perhaps you prefer to deal with people as little as possible, and hence you use the internet for most things? I think there are quite a number of people like that, and it's unhealthy.

I think he's just refering to the overall additute people seem have on certain websites/services. Running into an inmature piece of work every other time you turn around can really ruin the fun/experience of posting anywhere.

That's perfectly understandable smile

Yeah, my original post was working well until we get to the "too ashamed to admit" part...yeah I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm one scruffy lookin dude. I'm clean, just got lots of long hair and stuff.

Does anyone NOT? But if I need a more "legit" guilty pleasure for this thread, I'll take that one. It's classic.

I was picking my nose whilst reading that, actually.

I once watched the entire series of Sex in the City on DVD in a month.  Now that was a guilty pleasure.  I didn't think it was possible for a TV show to be *TOO* clever, but this one managed somehow.

Shoebonics Mar 14, 2007

Have you checked out The Sopranos?
highly recommended if you haven't, it's pretty fackin' clever too.

- Cleaning in its various incarnations -- whether dusting, putting away clothes, putting books in order, etc.

- Shopping for groceries, which leads to...

- Shopping at the local grocery store/drug store when there's a sale going on and getting everything on my list.

I'm guilty of being a long-term Sex and the City fan, myself. I didn't watch the whole series in such a short time period, but for a couple of years I was a huge fan. Even though it's generally marketed as a show "for women", it's extremely well written and accessible to everyone, regardless of gender. I still use some of the quotes from that show on a weekly basis. "Sake to me!" ....

I had a myspace account and did run into some decent people. When I cancelled my account, I told the administrators they need a better way to verify identity; they currently verify that an email exists - nothing more.

  What I did find interesting about myspace was the variety of groups. I even found a Clifford D. Simak group.

Hmmm, well I did enjoy the first couple of seasons, but then I felt like the show really started to drag... also I thought that ALL the women in the show (well, the 4 main characters anyway) were really really obnoxious!! I'm not sure if they're meant to be obnoxious, or it just came out that way, but I really felt like they were all a bunch of spoiled ditzes!
