Weekly Geeks #20

Pin It


So what's your pleasure? Your guilty pleasure... Weekly Geeks asked us to discuss our guilty pleasures.

I have a few. I figured I'd list them and discuss them a bit.

#1) Chocolate. If you dipped a shoe in chocolate, I'd probably eat it. I've always been a chocolate lover. I just can't stop. For a little while there it was almost a health food but it didn't last. It hasn't made it into the Canadian Food Guide so I guess I still have to feel guilty about it.

#2) Coffee. I used to hate it but my husband is an addict. Slowly he got me hooked too. Now I can't live without it. I think I'm now worse than he is. I hear there are a few benefit to drinking it but it does keep a person awake at night. Plus, I get nasty headaches if I haven't had it in awhile. That might be a problem.

#3) Wipeout. Yes, I mentioned this last week. I love this terrible, terrible show. People falling off of things, getting wet and muddy, doing things I wouldn't do and then getting laughed at by millions of people. Good times. Plus you gotta love those nicknames (Michelle "Deadbeat Daughter" won last night).

#4) Twitter. Some people don't get Twitter. I admit I didn't get it either at first. Now I spend hours reading people's Tweets. There are great things about Twitter. I hear all the book news first and have great discussions on there. But it is a time suck.

  1. "If you dipped a shoe in chocolate, I'd probably eat it." Truly awesome. I'm not even embarrassed to admit that I feel the exact same way! :)

  2. I DVR Tori and Dean in Hollywood. Shameful, I know. They're both such spoiled brats but it's like a traffic accident-I can't look away...

  6. I can totally relate to #3. I started watching it the first season, and even though I feel horrible about watching those people go through those things, it's still hilarious all the same!

  7. I can relate to the coffee and the twitter, but I've recently given up most chocolate. It's miserable living without chocolate, but I just can't find any with a fair trade label.

  8. Coffee, chocolate, and Twitter are my guilty pleasures also. I'm never heard of Wipeout though. After reading your post, now I want some chocolate and coffee!

  9. Coffee, chocolate and Twitter are some of my favourite things too _ and I didn't get Twitter at first either. Then I got my anti-Twitter friend to join. Heh.
    Um.
    Happy Weekly Geeks :)

  12. I've recently given up Coke and boy did I have headaches. Now I am past it though and surviving!

    I must admit that I am avoiding Twitter simply because it is a time suck, and I spend more than enough time as it is on the computer, but I am tempted!
