    My guilty pleasure? Dom and Submissive stories. If you met me, you’d never think that was my guilty pleasure to read.

    Besides reading, The Sims. I’ve been playing The Sims for years now. I have to buy each new game the day it comes out. Then I’m glued to my computer for days.

    When I say I’m reading one book, I’m usually reading 2 or 3 at once – call me addicted. Other than that, I adore horses, big cats, and being left alone. People are great; sometimes I just crave some silence though. 😀

    My guilty pleasure is reading and chocolate. Of late my reading has been erotic stories, so I guess that would be my guilty pleasure except for some fun I have with a couple of friends through my myspace account.

    My guilty please is reading, as I’ve read at least 1 book a day in 2009. I should really be finishing my application for New Pathways to Teaching, or wrapping all the X-mas presents in my basement.

  22. Janet
    December 23rd, 2009 at 8:55 am · Link

    Of course….massages, getting my nails done and the occasional “sick” day to catch up on my reading.

    I loved watching Charmed in syndication! I laughed at it while it was on prime time…but later I got totally addicted and managed to watch every episode (I think). :mrgreen:

    My guilty pleasure is my book expense. I sneak down to B & N as much as I can.

    Of course, they should be glad I indulge or else I would go postal.

    My guilty pleasure isn’t so much guilty as expensive….teenie bopper flicks. I love watching the Disney channel in the afternoon. I’m a fan of Sonny with a Chance, Hannah Montana and Life with Derek. I’ll also go see those obvious YA flicks that likes to show up, you know the ones, The Princess Diaries, the Prince and Me, A Cinderella Story. Granted a lot of them are Disney, so you could say my guilty pleasure is Disney.

    Eating chocolate and staying on the computer longer than I should on days that I need to be doing something productive!!

    Reading especially paranormal romance or D/s stories.

    Well I suppose I don’t have any. A guilty pleasure is one you are supposed to feel guilty about, right? 😉

    Closest I probably have is movies. I can find something worthwhile to watch in almost any movie given the right frame of mind. I know when not to go watch a “date movie” as much as I know when not to watch a horror movie. But eventually there is little I will not watch.

    Oh this one is easy…white chocolate, oh I love it too much, I could eat that and only that.

    Eating my new found sugar free cookies, also my sugar free Toffee covered chocolate squares and reading my erotica books. Does wearing silky pj’s count too? 🙂

    My guilty pleasure is… I love a hot bath with a glass of good wine and a good book. My husband and 6 year old know when Mom is in the tub leave her alone. I didn’t get to do it for the last 9 months… Just had our second son on the 14th. But come the new year it is Tub time.- Jeannie :mrgreen:

    reading romances is my guilty pleasure… and buying more than i can read all at once (but when you see those shiny new books and find out it’s part of a series, you just have to have it all the books in the series, you know?)
