  1. I am guilty of all five of these as well! Although I do try to limit to two squares of dark chocolate per day. I did give up on all of the Housewives except for NJ (my home state, poorly represented) and the OC (original gangsta housewives). My top priority for the new year is to spend far less time on Facebook, but seeing as how that was my top priority last year… Well, we shall see…

      Liz, I’m with all you ladies who say guilt is useless. If anything, we should be imbibing more in life’s pleasures, not less.

  2. HA! Since this is a heritage post, have you been able to make any changes in the almost two years since you wrote it? But it’s a fun post and I love your sense of humor! Pass the chocolate.

      Thanks Paula. Yes, I’ve ratcheted way down on Bravo. The dumbed down stuff got too much… even for me. As for the rest (head lowered), I’m afraid I”m as bad as ever.

      Thank you Haralee. I’ve heard some guilty pleasures that curl my hair. These are tame by comparison. Hmmm… maybe too tame? Something to ponder.

      Peggy, Facebook started as a little thing I did because a friend recommended it. I’m sure like many can say, its taken over my life. Its like going to the neighborhood coffee shop several times a day and checking in. Oh well. I’m sure there are worse guilty pleasures out there.

      Ha ha, love your thinking, Jennifer. Especially in these strange days, maybe its time to ratchet up, not take away.

      Thank you, Nancy. I know I will always have these as my guilty pleasures, although I’ve ratcheted down on Bravo. But chocolate? Words with Friends? Sleeping in on weekends? Can’t see those ever changing. Thanks for reading.

  3. I’ve been bingeing on Anthony Bourdain. There’s something weirdly sexy about him. I discovered him bingeing on CNN to watch the circus. I still love my Facebook and my dark chocolate. When you work from home FB is my way to connect when I can’t be there in person.

      Rebecca, I also love Anthony and even wrote about him in this blog. I agree, Facebook has become the world’s office water cooler. We all stand around and talk about stuff. I just need to stay away from it more, way too addicting.

  4. I share a couple of these with you. I have others that I am not ready to admit to at this time. LOL I used to be guilty of the Words with Friends but DD2’s boyfriend kept beating me so I uninstalled it. That’ll teach him. Ha!

      Pam, I’m as addicted to WWF as ever. I have now about 6 games going at any given time. Its getting out of hand.

  5. I’m one of those that rise at 5am to write (and to social media!) And yes, dark chocolate is good for you, it lowers blood pressure among other things.

      Jennifer, Totally respect you “get-up-early” people. I have several friends like that and wish my body would rouse itself in the early hours. Yay, dark chocolate lowers blood pressure? Yes!
