    Guilty pleasures

    I'm up in the middle of the night (well, besides the fact that I'm just a night owl) because in a few minutes they're going to show the TV series "Breaking Bad' from the pilot on. I came to that party late & discovered that I really like the show so now I need to get caught up. Which prompted my question. I don't consider "Breaking Bad" to be my guilty pleasure (tho I understand how it isn't everybody's cup of tea -- what can I say? I like weird TV shows with conflicted characters). So, if I tell you what mine is, will you tell us what yours is? I'm really embarrassed that I even know what this show is, let alone enjoy it but my guilty pleasure is either "16 & Pregnant" or it's sequel, "Teen Mom". Don't ask me why I "like" them because I couldn't tell you. In fact, I get so mad at the girls on "16 & Pregnant" that I yell at the TV (my DH says "Why do you torture yourself watching that mess?") but the next week, I'm back. OK... I came clean. Your turn.

    Okay, I'll tell mine. Sister Wives, it is so strange & gross, yet interesting at the same time. I guess I watch to see if these women will ever come to their senses, I don't know.

    Never even heard of "Breaking Bad". I've been known to watch "Duck Dynasty", and "Hoarding, Buried Alive", on occasion. Find "The Soup" to be kind of a hoot every now and then.

    I watch Tough Love, where a guy matchmaker tells women what they need to do to straighten themselves out to meet a man. There are some nuggets of interesting psychology in the show, but there's a lot of exploitation of fame-seeking insecure women as well. I don't admit watching it to just anyone!

    Who on earth knows why, it's truly ridiculous! Maybe I didn't have enough dating choices when I was young, LOL!

    Late night re-runs of "Whose Line is it Anyways?" and lately it's been The Big Bang Theory. Hilarious!

    Hoarding - makes me feel better about my huge stash of quilting stuff (at least it's organized and I'm not buried in it)

    "19 and counting" about the Duggars. I can't imagine having such a huge family!! I like "Sister Wives" too.

    No TV for me, but I'm just as mesmerized by some of the games on my computer. I tend to like the simpler games, but ones that do require a bit of strategy to win. None of the really involved ones like my kids enjoy. LOL! Most recent one that's had me hooked is called Four Elements.

    True crime shows on cable. They almost always get their man/gal.
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    I'm with you. Match 3 type games are my guilty, mindless pleasure.

    I cannot believe I am going to "come clean" about my guilty pleasure(s).......Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Braxton's. I really hate myself....but when they come on I can't seem to tear myself away.

    My husband says they make these shows because everyone loves a train wreck......I know they are a guilty pleasure cause I turn the channel really quick when my husband comes in! lol

    I am going to go take a shower now........
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    I too am a big fan of "Breaking Bad"! I can hardly wait till it starts again, too bad this is the last season of it. I love to read murder mysteries, love the criminal shows on TV and another sick one for me is "Hoarding". Sad because I am a minimalist, but I would just love the challenge of digging thru all that junk and organizing the place! So why can't I keep my quilt room organized!!! Every week I change things around in there, and still not satisfied.
    I know everything I WANT to know!

    Gene Simmons Family Jewels. OMG I am so embarrassed watching an aging rock star and his ex-porn star wife. If you tell anyone this I will deny it LOL!!! If anyone walks in the room, I quickly change the channel!

    I like "Mad Men" That has been a trainwreck this season. I do watch Hoarding: Buried Alive and also Animal Hoarders on Animal Planet.
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Well my guilty pleasure has nothing to do with TV...I love to go to the grocery store about once a month and play the slots. I alot myself about $40, win, lose or draw. Since I live in Vegas, there are slots in most every kind of store, gas station, K-mart, etc., and I never to to casinos anymore. The smoke bothers me too much and the traffic on the strip is ridiculous.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    Sister Wives---strangest concept ever. I cannot imagine that many women sharing one man and getting along. I was kind of relieved when some of them opened up about being jealous of one another. Also interesting this week when one said her children may not decide to stay in this type of lifestyle. Who would know better than someone who lived it?
