seems like a good a time as any to post, seeing as i can’t sleep due to the bunch of idiots across the road sitting on their balcony getting increasingly drunk and noisy. i’ve shut my window; time will tell whether i value quiet over fresh air.
so it’s about time to reply to karen’s tagging. the idea is this:
Ground Rules: The first player of this “game” starts with the topic, “5 Guilty Pleasures” and people who get tagged need to write an blog entry about their 5 Guilty Pleasures as well as state this rule. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.
so here goes…in no particular order, and off the top of my head:
- watching boxed sets of TV shows
no ads, you can watch several episodes at a time (if so inclined), and just about every TV show ever made is available on DVD. recent indulgences include: the OC (the guiltiest pleasure of all), seachange, scrubs, friends, alias, the west wing, gilmore girls…
- chatting to friends at work on MSN
to be able to vent or even just have a little bit of mid-morning banter can make even the most boring or stressful day go by a little quicker – and before you tell me it’s not a proper use of work time or something, let me just say i am a very good multitasker and am usually working on several things at the same time. just one of the aspects of sitting in front of a computer all day.
- seeing my fiction in print
it’s vain, but there it is. actually, no, if i’m a writer then what else would please me? and damnit, it’s something that is happening all too infrequently these days! must…write…more…
- singing and playing piano – at the same time!!!
i found this surprisingly hard to do for a long time, i could do one or the other but not often both at the same time. but over the last couple of years i’ve found it easier to do and am enjoying performing every now and again, especially with other people. singing harmonies and playing at church gives me a buzz…those moments when the harmony is just right can be delicious, especially if you can get 3 parts going.
- staying up and sleeping late
i used to live in the wee hours of the morning! over the last few weeks i’ve gotten accustomed to my old nocturnal lifestyle…alas, going back to work this week i’ll have to get used to going to bed at a sensible hour. grr.
so…i don’t know 5 people with blogs (who haven’t already done this anyway), but here’s 3 who may actually read this:
anyone else who wants to can tell me all about their 5 guilty pleasures in the comments section…(and if you do have a blog and haven’t told me…what’s your excuse? tell me!!!)
