Summertime always gets me thinking of the books that are considered "good beach books"....so I started thinking of guilty pleasures.

My guilty pleasure tv show: American Idol

Movie: Dirty Dancing

Books: Anything by Stephen King

Nothing I would really want to admit to those intellectual friends of mine....what are yours?

Guilty pleasures, hmmmm?

Books: smut novels and the "Cat Who ...." series by Lillian Jackson Braun

Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color.  Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

OMG I love those Lillian Brown Cat novels. It's very "light" and easy reading.

People and Instyle magazines. Watching old 90210 re-runs. A pint of peanut butter and chocolate Haagen Dazs. And also reading anything by SK (I love him) or (BIG blush) Jackie Collins. Talk about smut reading at its finest! :)

Ditto everything but the 90210 reruns, my guilty tv pleasures are All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital--although I can't tell you the last time I actually watched any of them in full. I usually catch the last 10 minutes of GH and that's that.

Eeeek - I forgot about the soaps. I occasionally tape GH, Y&R or Days. If I only see one episode per month I'm still pretty much caught up on things! ;)

My guilty pleasures are:

PORCH parties! In the good weather you can find me on my front porch ready to party (now that I have nice deck furniture... you may need to walk around to the back of the house to party!).

Mindless, steamy romance novels. I love Kat Martin, Linda Howard, Nora Roberts, Cherry Adair.... there are more.

The beach. The beach. The beach... need I say more than "the beach?"

I have become a spa addict. That is my guilty pleasure of the summer. I had a hot stone massage today and it was wonderful.


Other guilty pleasure of the moment: Mafia books and movies. I rented the Godfather Triology, Goodfella's and Donnie Brasco this week. I just finished reading Wiseguy and the Valachi Papers. Now I realing Underboss. Maybe there is a connection between my new obsession and my aggressiveness toward my neighbors.

For some reason, DS LOVES the song Toxic by Britney. He dances and giggles like a madman when it is on the radio. It's funny...but I don't get it...
