    I confess I watch "One Life to Live"

    and I love to read while taking a bath.

    Pickles. I'm not supposed to have them from the sodium level. My neighbor smuggles them to me every now and then, though. She's my dealer. :tongue:

    Trashy romance novels

    Really sappy TV. Especially shows about angels. A current favourite is Twice in a Lifetime (a Canadian show from the 1990s, where someone dies, and is given a second chance to come back and get a do-over of their life)

    Dressing like a teenager and pretending that I can still get away with it

    Sharing green stripey mints with Little easy child while we laze around watching sappy TV on Sundays (spoil your dinner, indeed!)

  4. AnnieO

    AnnieO Shooting from the Hip

    Shopping at Hot Topic with difficult child 1, who is simultaneously fascinated and creeped out by the fact that I love the clothes there... And will wear them.

    Crayola markers. Especially the "Bold Colors" in the thin line variety which are dang near impossible to find.

    Graph paper. Goes with the markers! I used to drive my parents batty wasting all the graph paper for school with drawings. Now I buy my own.

    Sixlets candy and Fruit-and-Nut granola bars.

    Shopping with my Mom. (I hate shopping at any other time, unless I am at Hot Topic... see #1)

    Not-so-guilty pleasures: When difficult child 1 says "I love you" - she rarely does - and she doesn't HAVE to. But she's finally figured out which "mom" she wants to live with... And the little things like difficult child 2 helping clear the table without being asked...

    When husband makes me coffee in the morning(he doesn't drink it) and I sit and talk with him while he dresses for work.

    Really pretty shoes.

    That great toe curling stuff we do with our husband's is probably first but :916blusher:

    cookies-perfect cookies. Not too sweet, not too heavy.

    Toblerone chocolate after it was in the refrig.

    Total bliss is emersing myself into this computer game from the moment I wake up until I go to bed...........But I think I was able to do that once out of the ten years I've played the game. lol And I'm not sure it counts as I was sick.

    Reading in a very hot bath for an hour or two (hot, steamy romance novels are good for this, but any book will do LOL). Before kids I could indulge in it often, but now it's a rare thing.

    Fran, I'm completely with you on this one
    Except...that I don't feel guilty about it.

    Trashy novels on the other hand...

    I not only love to read hot, steamy erotica novels...I write them and have been multiply e-pubbed. So writing these hot sex scenes is another (gulp) VERY guilty pleasure :love-very:

    My bestseller so far (well over 3,000) was "KIdnapped and Spanked by an Alien"

    MWM....I have got to read one of your books. My guilty pleasure is reading I used to read it much more but since I have been sick, not so much.

    PS...I actually wrote a few short, short pieces. do I get one of your books? My son has ebook capacity on his pda or phone.

    LOL. Go to my website.
    They will take you to the right publishing sites.

    I actually started doing it because I heard it paid better than just regular books. They weren't kidding! ;) "Kidnapped" got a lot of good reviews. So did "Seduced by the Sheik." Those were my two best sellers so far. I started out with regular romance, but it didn't sell.
