Guilty Pleasures Anonymous: Potentially Off-Topic

Right. I'm accustomed to telling the men in my life, with a wry smile and a wicked gleam in my eye, that I don't feel guilty about anything that gives me pleasure. But we all know what I'm talking about, and it's time to 'fess up. What would you never admit to publicly, perhaps not even to your closest friend, for fear of embarassment? What would surprise those closest to you, be it good, bad, or very bad.

I'll get the ball rolling. I subscribe to no less than two Harry Potter podcasts. There. I've said it. Food wise; bagels with ice cream (though this was a loooong time ago. I'm a reformed character), saltines with salsa, and anything I can eat straight from the tin. (hey, I live alone) Oh, and I fantasize about being a magnanimous celebrity a la Princess Diana or Angelina Jolie.

Remember folks. This is anonymous. Let it all hang out...

I am so boring, I can't think of one. I am reading a book on the Civil War called "April 1865"-- that is my guilty pleasure right now. I could be helping take better care of my newborn and tired wife, and pay more attention to my young son. But somehow this (excellent) book keeps tugging at me.

BTW- the book is fascinating.

What exactly is a Harry Potter Podcasts? I mean I am a non-techie, but what possibly connected to Harry Potter could be a guilty pleasure?

OP here. A podcast is basically a weekly or daily radio programme that can be downloaded to your Mp3 player at your leisure. As they are very cheap to produce, you can get them on about any topic possible. I guess the "guilt factor" comes from the fact that most people would never guess I listen, and it's not really intended for my demographic. They are Pottercast and Mugglecast, if you want to check them out. (recommend Pottercast for the older listener) But you forgot to mention yours!

I have a trash tv habit that includes The Girls Next Door and other stuff on the Entertainment channel.

I've been fantasizing about being an archaeologist-adventurer since 5 years before Raiders of the Lost Ark was even made. How excited am I that there's a fourth coming out??

I prefer Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to Godiva.

When I have no choice but to buy a cup of overpriced coffee somewhere, I take at least 20 packets of fake sugar to offset the rip-off price.
