Guilty Pleasures

I was just writing a note on Bandanamom's blog about books that I don't always admit I'm reading. It got me to think about other things I enjoy and don't always admit to.

The photo has nothing to do with it. If you look closely you can see it's a double rainbow. I took it on the way to Chinle.

So... I sometimes enjoy books that are entertaining but have no literary value. I love See's Candy. I love being done with my Christmas shopping, shipping, cards and decorations and it's not even December yet. (Sometimes I think that one's going to get me killed.)

I love a hot soak in the tub. I love dishes and table linens ( we already know that). I love having my own schedule at work. I love my IPOD. I love Burl Ive's voice on old Christmas songs. I enjoy shopping and spending money. I love calenders. I love Yankee Candles. I love eating raw chocolate chip cookie dough. I love phone messages. I love animals. I love Survivor, The Amazing Race, Top Chef, Project Runway, why don't I just say a lot of reality TV. I also like Lost, the Office, CSI and Heros.

I love Netflix. I love it that Dobbie is finally "housebroken" and not marking anymore. I like being the driver and yet sometimes I like to be driven. I love "new" things, new resturants, new stores, new books. I love variety.

I love the sound of wild birds. I love trees and plants in general, although mine often suffer from neglect.

I love how comfortable my new chairs are and like nothing better than to sit in them. I love the smell of clean laundry.

I love the seat heaters in the front seat of my car. I love Book Club. I love to to thunk those tubes of biscuit dough and make them pop. I love laughing at something with my sister and her seeing it exactly the way I do.

I love planning a trip. I love the temperature in the low 70's and crispness at night and in the morning.

I like mail (at least if it's not a bill). I like being right. I like not having to set the alarm. I like being able to walk around the house not fully dressed and never having to shut the bathroom door.
I love the smell of rain and anything do with rain, thunder, dark clouds the sound of rain.

So what do you like?

I like books that are entertaining but have no literary value. Those are my very favorite kind! :-)

I like Hershey kisses with almonds, because if they've got nuts in them, they're good for you. I like holiday Oreo cookies and popcorn on Sunday nights.

I like the Middle Ages and I love King Henry II. I like reading biographies and histories by authors with a good sense of humor.

I love cats. I love spending time with my sister. I like it when my brother calls. I like lots and lots of sunshine, but not when it's 117 degrees outside.

I like to watch Monk, Psych, Smallville, Heroes. I prefer TV with a plot, as opposed to reality TV. I miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. I like Fox Newswatch, Shepard Smith and Neil Cavuto on FNC

I like to write, but I like to write what I like to write. I like to play the piano. I like to listen to music.

I like griffins more than dragons. I love the Renaissance Festival. I love to shop and look at pretty things.

I like to stay up late, but I need to go to bed, so I think that's it for me!

I love eating out, road trips, and staying in nice hotels.

I love music and I love discovering new musicians that are interesting and quirky.

I love laughing - maybe more than anything in the world.

I love quiet.

I love swimming pools and palm trees and a diet coke with lots of ice.

I love sticky rice with mangos and coconut milk.
