Today I'm going to fess up to some of mine. Do you dare to join me?
Here they are, in no particular
order--My Guilty Pleasures:
• Nutella on a spoon
I've been known to eat an entire jar this way. I confess that I hide it behind the flour canister in the back of the pantry, where the kids can't reach it and my husband never looks.
• "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice
I confess: I still love this song--and, unfortunately for those around me, I still sing it.
• Tater Tots
The person who invented Tater Tots is a genius. I confess that I sometimes make them "for the kids" and then eat ninety percent of them myself.
• The Real World
I used to watch this show religiously. I don't care for the newer seasons, but I confess that I love the "vintage" shows, especially the one set in Boston, and I still watch it online.
• America's Next Top Model
This show has gotten trashier and trashier since it began in 2003, but I can't help myself: I confess that it's still one of my must-see shows. (And it totally counts as character research, right?)

I know: they're great for us, but they're so calorie-rich that they probably shouldn't be eaten multiple times a week. Like I do. Often. I confess. *sigh*
If my non-virtual friends are any indication, this one is probably on a lot of your lists. Right now my guilty pleasure is homemade chocolate pudding with a ton of Cool Whip on top. This must be eaten in secret, of course. I tell the kids that Mommy has some work to do and then I take my bowl into the computer room and close the door. I confess that I don't want to share!
• Gossip Girl
I don't go to this celebrity gossip site often, but I confess that sometimes when I'm bored or can't seem to write, I'll check out a few of the stories. (For research, of course...)
So there you have them: a few of my guilty pleasures. Care to share some of yours?
