Uh, Don?

Don Wilson 07 Nov 05

Guest speaker are we? ;)

I would suggest my biggest guilty pleasure, in an environment such as this blog, is using PHP + Windows :P

Sh, my dear … that’s why they are called “Guilty” pleasures.

Justin Reese 07 Nov 05

Eww, why does it bigify lists like that? Dirty.

I forgot Black-and-Tans. Definitely Black-and-Tans. Pleasurably for obvious reasons, and Guilty because at $5.75, they’re a monthly indulgence.

Mark 07 Nov 05

Sittin’ on the front porch eatin’ a Pork Rib MRE knowing your hot water is now (partially) working and thinking about working on the refrigerator next.

Scrivs 07 Nov 05

Sorry Mark, no save from calling your sister out. That’s just sick.

Guilty pleasures? None, I do what I want and ain’t ashamed to man up to them. Maybe that changes once you get married.

Okay maybe Simple Life magazine, but that’s it.

Sergei Muller 08 Nov 05

Las Vegas (TV Show)
Poker (Texas Holdem)
Paper Robots (ReadyMech)

brad 08 Nov 05

I’m with Don on Men’s Health mag. It’s such an annoying rag, full of exactly the kind of writing I hate most, and yet whenever I travel I pick it up in the airport newstand…I’m a moth to its flame.

Let’s see, other guilty pleasures…

Rochers Suchards (irresistable chocolates that sit by the cash register of the store where I buy coffee beans)

Burdick’s chocolates (even better)

Daily Oliver

Kraft dinner

Piers 08 Nov 05

Reading my own blog. I do it all the time. That, and belting out “Wishbone” by Architecture in Helsinki, while drumming along with my knuckles on my desk. At four in the morning.

Of course, I’m listening to the song with my headphones at high volume, so I imagine my singing is nowhere near the right notes.

notheory 08 Nov 05


This is the guilty pleasures list. So seeing “my sister, the babysitter” is… suspicious shall we say.

anyway. Mine:
japanese pop music
being lazy
pimping my flickr account to my friends & acquaintances

Colin Ramsay 08 Nov 05

Bloglines & Lost while away my time like nothing else.

in real life 08 Nov 05

Mark 08 Nov 05

Rundle, Scrivs’ - whatever. Wait until you have kids and find yourself in a great situation to dump them off on someone else and not have to pay them to do it.

It’s truly a guilty pleasure.

Kyle Posey 08 Nov 05

* Gilmore Girls, Laguna Beach, Extreme Home Makeover

fajalar 08 Nov 05

* Going to SvN and feeling like I am in a time warp.

* Realizing I have more in common with Mark than my business partners. :P

* Seeing a real “getting real” post because it’s Don. Don keeps everything real.

jean zaque 08 Nov 05

Brandon 08 Nov 05

Um, thinking hard… and…

* IBC Black Cherry Soda. (Directly resulting in a grand total of 11 cavities in a matter of a few weeks.)
* Smarties. (Directly resulting in strange chemical burns on my tongue.)
* Starbucks Mint Mocha Frapucinos. (Directly resulting in far too many late nights awake.)

As you can see, I have moderation issues when it comes to sugar. :-P

Archie 08 Nov 05

Just a coincidence that a conversation of this matter just happened last weekend.

Frank Sinatra, Norah Jones, Opus X cigars, followed by Harry Connick, Jr with Vodka Martinis (shaken not stirred)

chocolate, lots of it; peanut butter optional; whipped cream enjoyable

Anticipation before scratching a lottery ticket

Movie popcorn and smuggled Rum and Coke

Prison Break-until the jerks hold out on the last 6 episodes

Bond girls

All things Jenny McCarthy

Dreaming of Deanna…although she doesn’t know it yet.

Fred Faulkner 08 Nov 05

* 80s Hair Bands (Bon Jovi - yes saw them in Chicago last weekend, Def Leppard, Poison, etc.)
* Late night coding sessions
* HGTV/TLC Home shows
* Mountain Dew … which leads to late night coding sessions
* Actually watching the Sox win the World Series and I’m happy about it as a Cubs fan…which in turns dissolves my Cubs fan status.

brad 08 Nov 05

Hummus and pretzels. Together.

Which reminds me:

Drambuie and Oreos. Together. (just don’t dunk the Oreos in the Drambuie)

Justin Reese 08 Nov 05

justin, i belive the correct term is embiggen, not bigify

Can you say “embiggen” while crossing your arms like a gangster and nodding smugly? I think the choice is clear.

Adam 08 Nov 05

* BBC’s Antique Roadshow (the Brit version, not that rubbish US one)
* TimTams for dinner when the girlfriend isn’t around to “correct” my eating

Greg Hinch 08 Nov 05

The O.C.

Archie mentioned Opus X.

That’s not a guilty pleasure, that there is a TREAT! :-)

Tim 08 Nov 05

I have to agree with Jeff about Johnnie’s Italian Beef being a GUILTY pleasure. My personal preference is Portillo’s, but there’s something about Johnnie’s—you know you’re transgressing some sort of dietary boundaries. Kind of the same feeling I used to get eating a pizza puff at 4am after imbibing too much at the Metro.

richard 09 Nov 05

Um, Desperate Housewives isn’t a guilty pleasure. It’s just a damn good show! :)

Nicole 09 Nov 05

Laguna Beach
