    Guilty Pleasures

    What are your guilty pleasures? You know, those things you have no business enjoying yet you still do. Put it this way, if you need an excuse to enjoy it, it is a guilty pleasure:

    Here are some of mine:
    1) Spongebob - My daughter is 10 months old, and I she and I watch WAY too much Spongebob. Funny show.
    2) French Fries - I know that they are bad for me, but I love them so
    3) Video Games - I'm too old, I should be doing more productive things, but they suck me in.
    4) posting on Redszone - I spend WAY too much time worrying about Jay Bruce's OPS.
    5) Shoes - I have an extensive collection of Puma's. It's embarassing.
    6) Latte's - I know they are a yuppie drink, have more calories than most meals, and have enough caffeine to wake up a Rhino, but they taste sooo good.

    Chocolate Milk. I'm feel like I'm too old to enjoy it but I still do. I'll drink it as a "snack."

    If enjoying Spongebob and other media for kids is a guilty pleasure, then count me in too. I especially enjoy reading picture books with my kids. Jon Scieszka? That guy's writing for me, too!

    Movie theater popcorn with butter. I know it's not good, but...

    Gripppo's Loops. More sodium in a single bite then I should have in a whole day, but I could eat a whole bag in one sitting.

    I actually manage to stay away from the Mike-Sells, but I do sneak a bag of Snyder of Hanover sourdough hard pretzels into the shopping cart when my wife isn't looking.

    Graeter's ice cream. Being outside Cincy, I only get it rarely (twice in the last year), and I make myself sick eating it.

    Junie B Jones books, I enjoy them as much as my 7-year-old daughter
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Paul Newman's cookies.

    My closet habit of buying vintage shirts/clothing and classic vinyl records

    My secret, unhealthy obsession with all things Victorian and ghosts (and yes I live in a remodeled, haunted Victorian era home as well, and love ornate, spooky victorian cemetaries).

    Pro Wrestling, definatly. I was a huge fan who fell out of it, but now I'm getting sucked back in.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Disney Pixar and DreamWorks animated movies. Not just for the kids.

    The Biggest Loser. My wife loves the show so I watch it with her. The transformations these people go through is amazing.

    Sweet tea. I love it!

    Video games. Especially PC sports sims. I love to be a pretend GM.
