Ok, I'll give in..*g*

Laughing when I should be worrying

Crying when I should be thinking I'm lucky

Yelling at the cat when he drops a dead mouse on the bed at 06:25am instead of saying "good boy Snoops, thanks for bring me a present"  Grrrr!

Being caught smiling at the nice guy's bum when his girlfriend catches my eye...ooops

Leaving today's bills unopened and having a cognac instead, the former will make me sad, the latter will make me hiccup...*g*

Ranting and raving and hitting the send button and then thinking, "oh well, it's gone now, can't get it back"  and wondering at the reaction...oooops

Feeling guilty all the time and thinking life is just too damned short...

Sleeping naked and loving the pleasure of smooth silky sheets...*g*

Answering the phone "I'm awfully sorry, I'm tied up right now, please leave a message and I'll return your call later when I'm untied" and laughing cause they don't realise I'm not an answering machine at all...*crazy humour*

Never feeling guilty when watching someone smile....

Boring life, huh?...ROFL, or maybe I just kept the bad bits to myself..*g*

HUGS

I LOVE self-indulgence!

I just can't find anybody to do it with....

Guilty pleasures -

Staying home from work when I'm not sick and taking time out for a 'fantasy nap' in the afternoon.


Novels by Joan Smith (ok, I admit it. Regency novels that take me about 2 hours to read. When I'm 'hiding' from the world, they help me escape.

Rice Krispie treats.

Guilty pleasures, eh?  I have a few...

Being able to just stare at Abrahm (my boyfriend) when he's driving...I love to just watch him.

Ritz crackers, salami, and cheese....yum...  

Coloring in coloring books....yes, I'm nearly 17, but I still love to do that...  

Driving by myself at night with all the windows open and the radio blaring....I love that.  

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment....good idea here, serenity!

Guilty pleasures? Nope, not me...I'm innocent and pure...don't smoke, don't drink. Well, I guess it depends on what you consider guilty--I swear sometimes (not that that's a big pleasure, but you know what I'm saying), and I do enjoy magazines like Cosmo and Glamour. Then of course there's chocolate   and all the time I spend online when I should be doing real work.

Hmm..I'm not sure what that really means, but I'll give it a try.


* Taking time to actually let a strange stare of appreciation know I noticed by smiling back.

*  Sharing fantasies with trusted friends.

I'm sure there are more, but I can't think of any right now.

sheesh ....this thread SHOULD have been short ...just goes to show there's wayyyyyy too much "indiscretion" hereabouts ...

er.....or should that be "trust"...

or maybe ... "stupidity"  

or there again .... "brazeness"  

or "exhibitionism"  

or just plain "desperation"

chris

sounds like a good plan ....though she's suspiciously quiet ..wonder why!  ...phiLip

Then that is IT!!!  You are a TEASE...and that is your guilty pleasure!  I'll just bet, Phillip, that you wear tiger striped thongs--and boast little dimples in places where no smile belongs.....and, and, YAWN...gee, sharon, I'm feeling a bit sleepy...what hath I wrought?

Ok, I'm back. Seems my name has been called and I guess the jig is up. So, let's cut to the chase.... "guilty pleasures"?, asks serenity....ok, I will answer in verse....



no guilt I feel from pleasures taken,
lest my heart has been mistaken.
simple things complete my pleasures -
ice cream cones with double measures,
cabernet, shrimp peel-and-eat,
pool halls and kind words, too sweet,
riding down a highway, smiling,
notes for poems in books, compiling,
talks of dreams all filled with rhyming,
music, danced out to heart's timing,
books and books-on-tape complete me,
friends I've never met to meet me,
roller skates on kids in kitchens,
sweaters fit with double-stitchin's,
chopin, stevie ray, and jagger,
moon's dark side can make me stagger,
coffee, cream, shared in the morning,
thunderstorms without a warning,
walking solitaire on beaches,
honesty, and all it teaches,
words from caring love's protection,
confidences resurrected,
trust and hope and parlayed wishes,
dining on blue willow dishes,
holidays while family gathers,
bubble baths, vanilla lathers,
tanned skin soaking sun's illusion,
forgive myself of life's confusion,
watching films on television,
discussing plato and religion,
reading shakespeare by the fire,
rock-n-roll and blues inspire,
short sonatas on pianos,
harmonizing with sopranos,
brunch out on an autumn sunday,
constellationed skies on monday,
on and on and on i ramble,
pleasures taken are no gamble,
no guilt i feel from joys and pleasure,
peaceful breezes while in leisure.
no guilt I feel from pleasures taken,
lest my heart has been mistaken.

Doreen - she said "guilty pleasures" ... not everyday normal necessities

doreen---I thought that was beautiful---should be posted in open, I think.  It was almost as stunning as the sight of Phillip--
dimples dappling like a dream....

uh--scuze me, Mr. Christopher, but does that qualify as alliteration?

~sigh~ ~sigh~ .... umm i rather thought it was a joke .. but you never can be too sure where these "L's" are concerned (ask Chris)... anyway i hate "Poertree" more even than "Phillip" (ask Chris that as well), and moreover ..... hey am i'm beginning to sound prissy here? well we english can be like yanno ...

anyway i just went all shy again, and it's bedtime here .. maybe i'll see what i feel like in the morning  

night serenity

You've tried before - futiley of course since the both of you are so USELESS.

What would the world be without the wonders of my voice? How would you cope then C..?

but if you really want me to...sure...ok...

I'll chew away quietly and not speak again...

it would only be a matter of time..
