Blog Chain | Absolute Write for January
Such fun this chain has been — as they have been in the past! This one though, is more personal — a divulging of a bit of the soul of each participant. Our topic this month is guilty pleasures and by guilty, anything goes. Read through those before me and you’ll see what i mean. LadyCat was just before me, for example. The rest of the list of participants is listed at the bottom of this post. I encourage you to read through them all.
So, what are my guilty pleasures? Hmmmmmmm …. this is a hard one!
I really don’t watch much tv … used to. I read a lot, work or play on my computer A LOT but there are days where nothing will do but my favorite shows … of which I have just a few. Shall I list them? Ok!
Lost — yes, I’m a Lost junkie. I hate it so much I have to watch.
House — I still think back to Stewart Little where Hugh Laurie played the Dad. I laugh all the time, but House is so very stuck in my head now.
Bones — David Boreanaz. Need I say more?
The Office — having worked in the office the first 10 years of my life, I am down with the life and times it portrays.
That’s pretty much it for tv though — and those are always DVR’d so I can watch them at my leisure.
I am addicted to Bruegger’s bagels. I eat there every (and when I say every, I mean every) morning. While the bagel changes regularly, the unsweet tea with a splash of sweet is my signature drink. Everyone in my home-town Bruegger’s knows me and they can pretty much figure out what I want as soon as I walk in the door. It’s my own version of “Cheers” if you can remember that far back.
Chocolate. Add mint and I’m sold. Brownie? Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm. Peanut butter. Yum! Doesn’t matter the form, if there is chocolate in it, I want it. Now, granted, I can’t indulge but very infrequently (especially with the exercise program I am in right now — P90X) and as soon as that taste hits my tongue, I am sunk and crave it more and more for hours if not days. Quite the addiction — currently under control.
Anything made by Apple or Canon. My two favorite computers are Macs (5-year old Macbook Pro and iMac) and my cameras are Canon. They are extensions of my fingers, of my body when I have them in my hands.
That’s my last one. I am a Facebook junkie. I use it for business but also because I love to see what others are doing! Since I don’t work with tons of people around me, life can get lonely. Facebook gives me the opportunity to be nosey, privately. If you want to be nosey with me, feel free to send me a friend request. Link is right up there.
So there you have it … my guilty pleasures.
Oh … just one more. Rum and coke. Long day? That combination is the best end to it.
Now I think I need to go get some chocolate, tune into the latest Bones, sit back on my dirty couch, a coke in hand, add a few cap fulls of rum and finish up this post on my Macbook.
The entire list … read ‘em!
