One of the many adult beverage-laced conversations had this weekend touched on a subject that I've been ruminating on for a while....and one that I thought would make an interesting subject for a listing post....namely that of guilty pleasures(it began with a story that involves Simply Reg, Hall and Oates' Private Eyes, and a bouncer that laughed so hard... he stopped checking IDs for about 10 minutes). Now...I define a guilty pleasure as something that I take pleasure in...but that also calls into question my ability for discriminating taste...and , in some cases...my person. But I enjoy these things anyway....aspersions be damned. So...here is a list of just some of my guilty pleasures....in no specific order. Feel free to list your personal pecadillos in preference:
1. Grease...the movie.
2. Bread...the musical group.
3. Maury Povich paternity shows.
4. Slim Jim
5. Movies based on Jane Austen novels.
6. Watching Duke basketball teams lose.
7. The Indigo Girls.
8. Donna Reed
9. Doc Hollywood...the movie.
10. Big Brother...the reality show.
*others of note....Yoo-Hoo, Journey, and watching Hillary Clinton cry in public.
