Guilty pleasures

Title says it all.

I have zero shame in admitting these guilty pleasures. So, I guess they're not really guilty, but whatevs, it's the phrase.


Vanderpump Rules. I know that I'm in my early 30s, and I should be turning my nose up at shows like this. I know that I should be like, "I don't watch that garbage...I read." But, I watch it. And, I read. Because I am in my early 30s and I'll do what I damn well please, thankyouverymuch. This show is ridiculously addictive and in the back of my mind, I know/think that it's scripted, but I also hold out some shred of hope that it's not. Which, is awful, considering it means there really are people like this breathing the same air we do. There's so much whining, fighting, drunken fighting, backstabbing, cheating, crying, "Oh, I love her necklace", and more drunken fighting. It's amazing.

Miley Cyrus. She's grown on me. I think she's really quite talented. That's really all about that.

Frozen pizza. Yes, I know I am in Chicago. But, I hate the pizza here. I cannot find a true NY-style (AKA normal) pizza anywhere, and I am seriously actively looking. So, a nice frozen pizza, to me, is better than shelling out another $18 to only be disappointed when I open the piping-hot box and see yet another pizza that is either way too doughy or so thin, it cracks when I pick it up.


Pedicures. I honestly couldn't care too much about my fingernails, because I get bored with looking at one color on my nails for longer than a day-and-a-half. But, there is something about a nice pedicure. I like being able to kick off my snow boots and see polished nails on feet that have been scrubbed and slathered with lotion so much that they're literally glowing. But, I don't admire them for too long, because after about 20 seconds of staring, feet start to look super weird.

Quizzes. Buzzfeed quizzes, as of late. I don't know - I know they're stupid, but I'm learning so much about myself...especially things that I try to hide from others. Kidding, sort of. But, quizzes are just fun. Remember those Myspace questionnaires? Loved those so much, that my friends and I would make questions up and email each other during work hours, post-Myspace. I was usually the one making them up. Sorry, boss(es).


Valentine's Day. If anyone starts on me about how this is a commercial holiday and just a way to make money, and blah blah blah...I seriously tell them to knock it off. I'm not kidding - I've done it twice today. Valentine's Day is about LOVE. It's about showing it and celebrating it. And, yes...we all should be doing this I think Valentine's Day is just a day to remind you about this. Life's short. Don't be stingy with expressing emotions. Overuse "I love you" and hold people you love tightly. Buy some flowers, some candy, get a card, sure. Just remember to back it up and match it up with action.

This is the end of my public service announcement.

Happy Valentine's Day! And Friday! Does it get any better than this?
