Ditto that...we have firefly on DVD. Other "guilty pleasures":
Buffy
Angel
Supernatural (first 2 seasons are especially good)
Late night cable access...some weird, weird stuff there...seriously.
Nutella
Flesh Eating Mothers
Mt. Dew and Doritos
Eating cereal for lunch and dinner when my wife's away
Cadbury Eggs
Teaching my 14 month old to weeze instead of laugh (drives my mother-in-law nuts)
Take what people say literally just so they feel like they have to better explain themselves...especially enjoyable when the context is obviously intended to be a figure of speech.
Poop...always funny.

You people are Whedon junkies.


Yeah, I'm kind of getting into Dollhouse...

Interesting concept but kind of disgusting.

Yeah, I'm kind of getting into Dollhouse...

I was ready to give up on Dollhouse...and then I watched Friday night's episode on Huloo (sp?) last night with my wife. It's finally developing into something interesting as opposed to shower scenes and wealthy people looking for expensive hookers...until this episode, it hasn't been particularly "Jossy" (ie Joss Whedon).

*Stupid pop music (i.e. NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce etc.)

What about the Spice Girls?:smug:

Haha. Yeah, okay...I can confess to listening to a little of that. While you're at it, you might as well throw in some Britney Spears, New Kids on the Block and let's not forget....Ace of Base. I still have a special place in my stupid pop-loving heart for those guys.

1. Terrorizing PB Members with ominous rules and regulations.
2. Banning PB Members for no good reason at all.
3. Changing the status line of PB Members for my own amusement.
4. Yeah.

I love watching for #3. One year I got, "she's a mean one" :lol:

I could never stomach "Buffey" and "Angel." I never watched more than fragments of a couple of episodes. They took themselves way to seriously. Having said that, "Firefly" was no accident. It has serious dramatic content that didn't take itself so seriously. Whedon's a tremendously gifted producer/writer/director and so many who otherwise wouldn't otherwise tolerate his penchant for feminism give him the benefit of the doubt. He supposedly likes "kick butt" female characters but I fail to understand how a seemingly trashy plotline, about a barbiesque girl-drone being programmed to do whatever the client wants, doesn't run counter to his feminist objectives. Seems like another "La Femme Nikita" to me with more technology.

Like someone said above, if I felt guilty about them I wouldn't do them so lets say, "less than gonna brag about when I first meet a fellow saint" pleasures?

I am a fan of the Buffyverse. (A former elder of ours told me to try them about 3 years ago, I was bedridden for 4.5 months) so I gritted my teeth through the first season and by the end of season 2 I was hooked. Best writing around not to mention redemptive themes etc. Also enjoying "The Big bang theory tv show cause I love the nerdy aspergey characters on it...eschew the title.



The occasional short Breve Latte, even though I know half and half isn't good for you. It reminds me of when I was a little girl, going out with my Norwegian father who would only drink "plain old AMERICAN (yeah right dad, was it kona?) coffee black, the way God intended. And then would be left these little glass jars of cream by an absent minded waitress. If I asked he'd let me drink them, and so Breve's have that kind of comfort feel to them.

I have an addiction to Neutrogena Handcreme.

MAC lipstick.(pricey but so many colors...this from someone who rarely wears the stuff)

I'm an early adapter (for anything techie...)

Kindle 2 and pressing the "buy" button.

I talk to my Betta Fish when I feed him. (He's a little pig, goes by Augustine)

Raw chocolate chip cookie dough, but I won't eat it raw unless I make it from egg beaters for "fear" of salmonella, drat. We ate the stuff all our lives until now???

Salt and chocolate together...I don't care how it happens...Dark Chocolate salted caramels, choc cov'd pretzels, you name it...started when I was a kid dipping fries in my choc milk shake (I was a skinny kid, yay) and never looked back.

Obsessive about Geneology and locating birth families, adopted and loss relatives. have done it for years for self and others. I get the bug when I'm on a case.

Ok, the weirdest...my favorite place to be in this town, is in the automatic carwash with a cup of coffee...10 mins of humming, watery, total isolation....it's bliss.

Praying outloud and singing psalms outloud when no one else is around. I need a "prayer closet"

Ditto to the mac and cheese folk, if it's comfort food, I love it. Hate fast food. Love me some SLOW food...soups, stews, roasts...

I also enjoy genealogy. I found my dad, his side, my siblings on that side, and assisted a friend in finding her dad and siblings. I've got one of my sides back to the 1400s, I believe. Working to eventually acquire our tribal membership.

Foreigner and Journey have two songs apiece in the top 20? And what was the deal with the "moment of silence" during the Bryan Adams song?

What is Dollhouse?
Is it a show by the Buffy guy?
He has done a couple Office episodes...the one with the bat, actually. He must be obsessed.
Anyway, what is dollhouse? What channel? I saw someone from college talking about it on Facebook, too. I thought maybe my school put on Ibsen's Doll House at the theater, but then for you guys to be talking about it, too?? And Joss Whedon mentioned. I know for certain he did not direct a play at my college and that you all didn't go see it. So it must be a TV show.

Also, "guilty pleasures," doesn't really mean something you feel guilt over. Here:
Guilty Pleasures , a phrase used in western society to denote things (e. g. pop music, novels, films, television shows, books, food) that one really likes but often finds too embarrassing to admit to.
Maybe Tripel can edit his first post with that definition in it so people don't feel real guilt about posting here!

That's a good point, Jessi. The "guilt" in this case is sheer embarrassment or slight sense of shame. It's supposed to be superficial and lighthearted.

Is there any guilt in listening to ABBA? Not really, but I'm quite embarrassed to admit that I like it. I don't want to like it, but I can't help myself.
Same with the Lime Cactus...it's a horrible beer, truly horrible. It's hardly even a beer at all. That's the snob in me talking, but on the other hand I will plow through a 6-pack in no time.

Jessi, I think it comes on the same night as that Terminator show. They are both on Fox. I haven't watched an episode of either. But I've seen the commercials, and they are marketing the fact that they have "attractive" (a stretch in the case of Terminator, In my humble opinion) women on both shows -- women who both happen to be something more/other than women. I guess they are going for the geek demographic. ;)

OK, I've changed the OP to include a definition.

I don't want to nitpick (wait, yes I do) but some of you have not revealed true guilty pleasures. You've simply revealed things you like or have a unique interest in.

Are you actually embarrassed that you have these interests?
