Do not tell anyone.


We all have guilty pleasures that we would not want the rest of the world know about. Since I am more human than most (more fallible than most), I probably have more guilty pleasures than anyone does. The following is a list of my guilty pleasures:

1. Godzilla movies. There is something almost spiritual about a movie where the USA is often the bad guy, and a radioactive lizard destroys everything. In my opinion, anything that makes one contemplate if we, the USA, are the good guys is a good thing. In fact, everyone should ask themselves if they are one of the good guys/girls from time to time (consider it an existential exercise).

2. Zombie Books. My favorite writer is Joseph Conrad, but my favorite books (currently) are zombie books. A tireless enemy that never rests (even terrorist sleep) and has only one goal is a horrifying thing.

3. Comic Books. Comic books get a bad rap. They are a wonderful way to get children to read. I have never understood why Harry Potter books, which were written for children, are okay but not comic books. If you think all comic books are light reading material...read The Watchmen or V is for Vendetta (or watch the movies).

4.Rom Coms. Comedy is comedy no matter what the format, and if it helps get my wife in the mood...

5. Heavy Metal. Heavy Metal is the music I grew up with, and it still speaks to me now.

6. Horror Movies. I am not a fan of serial killer movies, but I do enjoy anything supernatural. Nothing makes you feel more alive than fear.

7. Babies. Men are not supposed to go gaga over babies but I do. There is something comforting about the fact that God has not given up on us yet.

8. Wrestling. Most women hate wrestling and say, "Why do you like it?", and "You know it is fake." Excuse me, but almost everything on television is fake, including the reality shows.

9. Cartoons. I am not only talking about Animation Domination on Fox either. Bugs Bunny is still the best wise guy on television.

10. Eating raw cookie dough. I know there is some danger involved (raw egg product), but it tastes soo good.

11. Tosh .0. Some people say that America worships stupidity, and I am afraid by watching this show, I might have joined the stupid worshipping masses (be nice atheist and agnostics).

12. South Park. It is the funniest show on television, but they bash Christianity all of the time.

In closing, that is my list of guilty pleasures, and I am very interested in hearing about your guilty pleasures.

      No, I have not read that particular zombie book, but I have read another book where two zombies loved each other (it was decent). In any event, I can't wait until World War Z comes out. In closing, I never have actually made it to the oven with the cookie dough.

      What a fun list of guilty pleasures... the first thing I want to say is ... Have you read the book Warm Bodies - it is a zombie love story. Yes - I am a zombie addict as well. :)

      As for my quilty pleasures... musicals... I love watching them, wish I could be in one... and occasionally, people in my family break out in random song because we mistake life for a musical. It just can't be right.

      Soap operas - yes - I am a soap opera addict. I can't help it... I can go away from watching it for awhile and then I can get dragged in just as easily. I know the characters... I even got my husband into it a little bit where he asks how so and so is from the soap opera. Oh yeah... and while not intentional... each one of my kids names are also in that show. :)

      Oh yeah - and cookie dough batter... are you really soppossed to cook it!

      Apparently, I cannot read and apparently I only have two guilty pleasures (kinda sad - I will have to develop some more).

      Apparently my only two guilty pleasures are "salty snacks" because I do take medication for high blood pressure and as you aptly pointed out "reading your hubs." :)

      A guilty pleasure is something pleasurable that induces a usually minor feeling of guilt. –Webster’s Dictionary.

      Phdast7,

      1. None of the films you mention could or should inspire guilt.

      2.All of your TV picks are respectable choices and should not induce guilt. Now, if you love The Jerry Springer Show, one would have a guilty pleasure.

      3. The comedies you mention are well regarded, so they cannot be considred guilty pleasures.

      4.The love of the movies Alien, The Thing, and Blade Runner cannot be considered guilty pleasures because they are some of the best examples of science fiction of all time; however, if you like Godzilla movies, Dr Who or Space 1999, you have a guilty pleasure.

      5.Sting is a music icon and could never be a guilty pleasure.

      6.You are not an angry person, so your music choicer are perfectly acceptable to everyone.

      7.If the baskets were weaved out of gold, you would have a guilty pleasure.

      8.If you have high bloodpressure, like I do, your food choices are guilty pleasures.

      9.Chocolate is a great blessing given to us by God. I am pretty sure that chocolate has sved my life several times, and I know that my consumption of chocolate save my son's life on numerous occasions.

      In closing, I think that reading my hubs...would be considred a guilty pleasure.

      Baskets - old not new and they have a million uses

      Books - house is full, office is full, but I keep buying

      Salty foods - nuts, chips, popcorn,

      Sweet - anything with dark chocolate, cream cheese, nuts

      Oh, my! My list is pretty boring compared to yours, but I guess its OK for someone who has three grown sons and three grandchildren. This was fun. SHARING
