I'm Guilty

When Chicken has a work dinner event I'm secretly pleased because it means I get to watch trash TV. There are many nights we don't have the TV on at all (like all this week) because she is working all night and I'm busy in the kitchen, etc. I actually like NOT watching TV because I get so much done. But if I'm all alone...the lure is just too strong to fight sometimes!

What do I watch?
  • Intervention (I love me some good junkie stories)
  • 16 and Pregnant
  • Teen Mom
I used to watch Hoarders, but it was too depressing even for me. Seems like a lot of you watch Sister Wives....hmmm. Might have to check that out.

There's a CVS across the street from me and I'm in there almost daily for a milk run (cheapest in the hood for hormone free milk). That damn CVS loves to put cereal on sale and they display it right as you walk in. If they have Cocoa Pebbles on sale (2 for $5!), I buy one...or two. And then you will find me eating a huge bowl of cereal for dinner and um, maybe lunch. It's so BAD.
I cannot pass a Dairy Queen without jonseing for a Snickers Blizzard. Thankfully there's not a DQ for miles around.
Starbucks Bacon/Egg/Gouda sandwich (is that a guilty treat? It feels indulgent to order a breakfast sandwich at Starbucks.)
If I'm in Asia, I crave frozen Twix and super cold Diet Coke. Why in Asia? I have no idea.....

Chicken's new guilty pleasure is very specific: Victoria's Secret cotton gstrings. She ordered a batch (can panties be a batch?) the other day and I opened them up, looked at the receipt and declared, "You paid $9.99 for ONE pair of panties?!" Because I'm a 3 for $10 kind of bargain undie shopper. She looked appalled and said, "That pair was for your birthday." Oops. I sheepishly apologized and then let her know...they were the wrong size. No present for me!

KJ--I'll try to find some old HS photos to scan in when I have time (hahahaha).
Also, I had a nanny audition today. She's pretty good...and cute, too!

I love love love your blog.

We have almost nothing in common being that your an awesome mom too twins and i'm a 20 something australian chick.
However we do both like girls.


You've just sent me on a reality tv show binge.. so thank you.

My guilty pleasure is eating child hood faves, for me thats raspberry twists and this caramel bar.

Sister wives is awesome.. I'm currently in a polyamorus relationship and I love that they don't sugar coat their feelings in the show, if they are angry or jealous or feeling crappy they say it too each other.

Loving your post a day as well :)

I love sugar cereals as well, although Lucky Charms light my fire! I totally should have put that in my post yesterday. :) I would scream if Tiff paid $10 for a pair of underwear- I am cheap and like to buy a full pack at Costco. :) Can't wait to hear about the interview!

My sugar cereal of choice is Captain Crunch I'll admit. Glad there's not a CVC within walking distance to me :)

How it's made is a good one and my wife LOVES Pawn stars.

mine is fruit loops. and tam and i both indulge in reality tv (real housewives of atlanta, anyone?). my guilty tv when she's gone for the evening is the day's abc soaps on soapnet! or dramas on the WB (like smallville, 90210, gossip girl, etc...)

I love Intervention! I had a crazy Intervention moment at the T station a few months ago - I arrived to the platform to a woman out cold with her head against the wall (and our T stop is very, very disgusting, rats, etc.) surrounded by concerned people with this guy yelling excitedly into his cell phone, "She was huffing something out of a bag, it's like Intervention!" Then, while everyone was looking at her, she came to and then immediately huffed into her bag, and I thought - it IS like Intervention! We called 911, but she jumped onto the train before they got there...we all stood there wondering if this had really just happened.

As for Hoarders, I am with you there - I was fascinated for a couple of episodes, but then it got too depressing to watch. Unlike Intervention, this show does not seem to be offering actual help.

I feel like I could write a whole post on this...
