Guilty Pleasures Meme & Other fun

Look! It's not a hair post!

The party was fun! My costume kicked ass, and I ate:

1 Boston Creme Donut
1 Slice of Coconut Pie
1 Slice of Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie
1 Slice of Lemon Meringue Pie
Lots of Chex Mix
3 Cups Black Coffee
1 Cup Manhattan Special (Coffee & Coke mixed)

This bears informing you all about because I have not, with the exception of silly girly coffee drinks from Starbucks, had a cup of coffee since I was 17. If you have ever wondered about the real effect of caffiene, OH MY GOD. I was so wired. It was exactly like being drunk, except without the judgment issues. I couldn't even type straight. WHOA. Seriously, I think I was capslocking everything I said last night. quizzicalsphinx and liret can probably attest to that. I am assuming the fact that everything else substantial I ate all day contained mass amounts of sugar didn't help. Whoa.

And then I crashed so hard. I ate green beans, though, and those got me out of the crash, which I guess is the benefit caffeine/sugar has over alcohol. I don't think green beans can cure a hangover.

From rattsu

Okay, as a rule, I don't do memes when I'm tagged, but I liked the concept behind this one, despite the fact that I hate the stupid little generator for it.

So I took it out of the generator and I'm not tagging anyone. Just, um, do it if you want to, or post your thoughts here.

Culinary Guilt
Stouffers' Chicken Pot Pie

I think this means something a bit different for me, because I am not particularly someone who gets guilty about the healthiness of my food, but growing up with a mother who made everything (and I mean everything, including beer and yogurt, from scratch, I'm embarrassed to like anything that gets cooked in a microwave. This is somewhat akin to failure as a human being. But they are really yummy and wonderful late-night-snack food. I actually prefer the Marie Callendar's brand because they have little onions in them, but they don't sell those at any of my local grocery stores.

In other tales from the fascinating and bad eating habits, I:
--Guzzle Lemonade-flavored Gatorade.
--Enjoy Birdseye Green Beans and Spaetzle.
--Eat ceci beans straight out of the can.
--Mix bowls of butter and brown sugar and chocolate chips, and put this in the microwave.
--Drink from the container. This is less gross when you live alone, and I don't do it at other people's houses.
--Love Passover Marshmallows (the ones dipped in coconut) to death.

Literary Guilt

This may at first glance sound like I am not ashamed of anything I read, but what I mean, in actuality, is that I don't read. I am very well-read, surprisingly so for someone who hasn't finished a book since the last Lemony Snicket came out. But I generally only read two or three books a year. I'm a painfully slow reader, mostly due to being dysgraphic (I can't deal with washrooms that only say M and W on the doors because the letters look the same to me), and just plain prefer to watch movies over reading books.

I know, it probably makes me a bad person, especially having been a voracious bookworm as a child, but, then, I wasn't allowed to watch TV as a child, so I didn't know what I was missing.

Honorable mention goes to:
--Girlie magazines (by this I mean ones full of beauty tips and human interest stories, not porn)
--Old Caroline B. Cooney and Lois Duncan horror books.

Audiovisual Guilt
Meh, I'm changing these categories.

Televisual Guilt
Ugly Betty

I know Ugly Betty is horrible. I can judge this with all my objective knowledge of television and film. The production values suck, a lot of the acting is pretty much hamming it up, even Vanessa Williams' hair sucks. BUT IT IS SO CUTE. The characters are just so sweet and wishy-washy and the plot twists are just so hilariously out there-- it's like it revels in being horrible television, and that makes it good. Now, I don't have to cancel all my Thursday plans to make sure I don't miss it, but I generally watch new eps online within a week of them airing when I do.

Honorable mention goes to:
--American Idol (although I haven't been watching as much this season)
--Wifeswap (again, haven't watched it recently)
--Christmas specials

Cinematic Guilt
Lindsay Lohan movies.

There haven't actually been any of these in a while, but I'm sorry, it doesn't matter how many horror stories the tabloids print about her getting drunk in rehab or using her ninja skillz on Jessica Simpson or recruiting for biological specimens to take back to her home planet, I adore Lindsay Lohan. I think she's a brilliant comedic actress and she's never done anything that has failed to crack me up, including her stint in "A Prairie Home Companion" completely fucking up the words to "Frankie and Johnny." She's one of a very small list of actors and actresses for whom I will happily see any movie they make, and, well, most of the other ones (with the exceptions of Will Ferrell and Jack Black) are considered extremely more dignified. I think "Mean Girls" is the greatest teen movie since "The Breakfast Club." I strongly believe that with all my heart.

Honorable mention goes to:
--Other sappy girly romance movies.
--The Robert Englund Phantom of the Opera
--Anything Julian Sands has ever starred in, ever.
--I would say Troma flicks, except that's an easy answer. No one is actually embarrassed that they like Troma.

Gaming Guilt
The Sims 2

I haven't played Sims 2 in forever, but seriously? I never really played it much anyway. I just buy all the expansions and spend all my time setting up houses and making characters and then don't have time to play it because I realize that it's suddenly eight in the morning and I've been up all night decorating an imaginary bedroom. I'm not embarrassed by the fact that I play it. I'm embarrassed that I spend so much money buying the damn CDs and then barely play it, and never apparently achieve anything interesting while playing it.

Musical Guilt
Pretending to be a pop star.

I think this outweighs actually listening to anything. I totally block out dances moves in my apartment. I sing out loud. I sing in the shower. I sing on the street. I listen to the same song four or five times in a row so I can figure out how I would perform it. I love to sing. I used to be quite good at it, but then I stopped practicing when I went to college and now, mmm, not so much. But I still love to do it. I don't think I would ever actually want to be a pop start, but I would love to perform music for an audience. And not acting, just singing. I get so pumped up when I'm singing.

Honorable mention goes to:
--Pretty much anything else from the disco era.

Celebrity Guilt
I already gushed about Lindsay Lohan above. Does that count? I'm really not that big of a celebrity watcher-- and there aren't too many celebrities I like that I'd be embarrassed to admit I like. Okay, there was that mad crush on Richard Simmons, but that's before I realized he was a man.

MMM, also, I feel like answering questions. Feel like asking me something? Go ahead and ask me questions in the comments.
