This week’s task was sent in by Maree of Just Add Books
, who’s been thinking about those things that we do when we’re not reading or blogging. She asked…
What’s your non-reading guilty pleasure? Trashy TV? Trashier movies? Junk food? Share with the group.
First of all, there’s my itchy feet:
I love to travel. In fact, I just made plans to fly to Portland THIS WEEKEND. Hamburger decided to take off on a last minute surf trip, and I figure it’s better to be alone someplace else. In the past four years I’ve been to England, Italy, Seattle and Victoria, BC, Savannah, Green Bay (go Packers) and Sunriver, Oregon (actually, this is a regular trip for a family reunion…but it’s still a trip). The above picture is me in Naples, Italy…ready to hit the road and see the sites!
Second, I have a little thing for shoes (and clothes):
This is my closet. What you can’t see is the additional 2-3 feet of hanging clothes and all of the shoes on the floor. Hamburger got booted to the closet in the spare bedroom. We have a running debate over which is worse…my shoe habit, or his Harley parts habit.
Third, I love pedicures:
The current color is Suzi Says Da! Otherwise known as chocolate-brown. And don’t laugh at my baby toes. My mom and I argue that we are more evolved, since baby toes are unnecessary and we’re that much closer to not having them than the rest of you.
And finally, our thermostat:
While I don’t necessarily like hot weather, I do like my house to be nice and warm. But then, I live in the fog. In fact, my heater is currently on, because June in Morro Bay? Brrrrrrrr.
So there you have it…four of my guilty pleasures. Besides the books, because that’s just a given. What are your guilty pleasures?
