    Alright, so what's your guilty pleasure? Is it a certain food, your computer, a game, a sport, adult fun, or maybe even a hobby? What is that thing or activity that you spend entirely too much time doing that everyone else thinks is just too much? Maybe it's personal, maybe it's weird, maybe it's illegal or maybe it's just downright obsessive. Don't be shy now, the community question of the week is how we get to know each other better.

    My guilty pleasure is reality TV. I'm such a sucker for it. And don't start telling me that's it not true reality because I already know that. I love everything from the MTV stuff to the major network heavy weights like Survivor and The Amazing Race. I guess it's just the "people watcher" in me. My wife hates it and can barely stand to watch any of it with me. She always give me the, "Why are you watching this junk! I can't believe you like this kind of stuff." Which means I usually have to DVR it and watch after she goes to bed. This in turn means that I stay up way too late at night and end up dragging the next morning. Hey, what can I say, that's why it's a guilty pleasure. :D

    I like taking pictures of plants, nature, and such. I'm a guy. My friends think it's too feminine :(

    me - i like hunting and being in the outdoors. i like "God's country" and not this man made crappy urbanite world we've created. odd b/c i like technology, but just not the cities and urban landscapes.

    ppl do think i'm obsessive about loving the outdoors so much, but there's just something about it. :)

    food wise - once in a blue moon, a good bag of dill pickle chips can disappear very quickly, but then the next day, I feel deep regret.

    and ironically, working out - since I found the right path of regular exercise, i'm a b*itch if I miss a few days without a good workout. I've felt so much better (plus the lost weight), that i need to workout at least 3 times a week.

    I like celebrity gossip. I am ashamed. :eek:

    Also, I really enjoy the band 3OH!3. Like, lots.

    Your friends are wrong. Nature is awesome and those are lovely pics. :)

    Mine is cycling I can ride for hours without getting bored I also have been waking up at 6:30AM to watch the Le Tour de France. My other pleasure would have to be cars I spend way to much money and time going to track days and the up keep costs way to much but I love it.

    Peanut butter by far is my guilty pleasure. I eat it by the spoonful several times a day. Most likely hundreds of calories worth each day but I'm still skinny. Thank God for Cross Country running. :D

    I used to eat peanut butter from a spoon when I was seven. *shoves economy-sized jar of smooth peanut butter away*

    Hrmm, what else is there. When there's nothing else on, I sometimes watch SpongeBob :eek:

    LOLCats. I don't know why, but I love 'em. I love reading Caturday in the Fark. (I think it was the 4th of July)

    My guilty pleasure lately has been watching Grey's Anatomy. I've been a LOST girl the last few years but after a friend lent me her copy of season one, I've been addicted to the series. I've shunned a few friends lately saying "I don't feel so good, you girls go ahead without me" and then popped in a few DVDs. :eek:

    My other guilty pleasure is shoe & make-up shopping.

    Armageddon films. I just love the subject for some reason! I'm not depressed, I love this place blah blah. I just like seeing how we'd survive after something big and (in Roland Emmerich's films) the effects leading up to it.

    I'm the same way. I don't know if you could classify it as a 'guilty pleasure' although I don't tell that many people that I do, but I feel pretty bad if I miss a workout..

    Makes me feel more limber, and feel like it power washes my brain (if that makes any sense)
