10 Stiegemeyer Guilty Pleasures

I got tagged a while back and, though I meant to, I never got around to answering. The reason I think I put it off is because I was having a hard time coming up with ten interesting things to say. I don't think I succeeded below, so don't expect much insight or hilarity.

Cubicle Reverend asks us to post ten guilty pleasures. By "guilty," I don't think he means "sinful," so don't expect any titillating confessions. These are in no particular order, by the way. And feel free to comment.

  1. I'm a cookie monster. Luv 'em. Gotta have 'um. Oreos are best. Next, Chips Ahoy. And thirdly, Nutter Butters.

  2. Scary movies. I'm not a major horror movie aficionado, but I do enjoy well-crafted movies and books that make you sit on the edge of your seat.

  3. Pulp fiction. I read more new books than old. I know, I know. How, you are wondering, can I live so far out on the edge. It's scary, man. But I firmly agree with C.S. Lewis that for every new book one reads, one should read an old one. I just don't always practice what I preach.

  4. XM satellite Radio. I love the variety, the options, and the complete 100% absence of ads. I have discovered so many wonderfully talented artists that I would never have found otherwise. Commercial radio is so inhuman, so cookie-cutter, so, so, so ... Commercial.

  5. Computer Games. At the end of a day of visiting the sick, attending meetings, researching, writing, answering the phone, etc., nothing is so relaxing as blowing up entire civilizations.

  6. People Magazine. Not great literature, I'll grant you. But notice the long line of very heady journals I read every week and then give me a break. I don't care about the Hollywood gossip (pathetic really), but I like keeping up on the latest happenings in TV, movies, music, books, etc.

  7. Dark & bitter coffee.

  8. Dark & bitter beer.

  9. Dark & bitter chocolate. (I guess I'm just a dark and bitter person).

  10. Cats. Some people are dog people. Others are cat people. I love both. But my kitties are special.

Wow! with all those "guilty pleasures" do you have feel guilty about being "A culture vulture"?!
