    I probably shouldn't be admitting this, but my workout today reminded me of it. My iPod finally started working again, and rekindled my weakness for 80's music. But not just any 80's music: Huey Lewis. Seriously, there is nothing that can get me kicking at the end of a hellish 5 mile run like hearing "The Power of Love."

    And with that, I'll crawl back into my hole. :bricks:

    What are your guilty pleasures??

    Chinese food. Supposed to be a big no-no for me. But once in a while, its a great hot and sour soup, followed by a pu-pu platter, followed by some roast pork lo-mein!

    Why feel guilty about a pleasure? Pleasure is great and there ought to be more of it in the world. :)

    OK. At times of stress (like now, as it happens) I walk down the street singing to myself -- often Country and Western (sounds great with a posh Brit accent!) or Everly Brothers. It's a pleasure for me, at any rate.

    Oh dear. I have two pleasures that raise eyebrows. One is Football, which makes people look at me like I'm an alien over here. The other is Metal.

    Oh, this is mysterious.....


    My guilty pleasure would have to be acting like a goof at work. Considering my management position it is highly inappropriate for me to be skipping down the hall, doing a couple of Michael Jackson 'Billie Jean' moves, or gimping along like Walter Brennan.

    That would be great....but, unfortunately, I think it's closer to thin Jerry Lewis.

    I am in my late twenties, but I still watch a reality show about teenagers.

    Oh, and Justin Timberlake. A very yummy guilty pleasure :D

    I hate jokes that are in a foreign (to me) language and when explained lose all their humor. I feel so...so....so....ignorant.

    Well, that wasn't the intention ...

    On Ilkla Moor Baht'at is the anthem of Yorkshire and has a certain "regional" flavour (e.g. the title means "On Ilkley Moor Without Your Hat"). Like the best Country and Western Music its lyrics bring together very disparate ideas. In this case, I would mention sex, cannibalism and financial prudence -- as well as the headgear.

    Here is what Wikipedia says:

    "On Ilkley Moor Baht 'at" is a popular folk song in the English county of Yorkshire.
    Sung to the old Methodist hymn tune "Cranbrook" (composed by Canterbury based shoemaker Thomas Clark in 1805 as a setting of "While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night"), the song tells of a lover courting the object of his affections, Mary Jane, on Ilkley Moor without a hat (baht 'at). The singer chides the lover for his lack of headwear – for in the cold winds of Ilkley Moor this will mean his death from exposure. This will in turn require his burial, the eating of his corpse by worms, the eating of the worms by ducks and finally the eating of the ducks by the singer. A great deal about Yorkshire folk can be determined by close analysis of this song.

    A Texas version might be difficult ...

    My guilty pleasures:

    The "thread about nothing."

    Wendy's large vanilla frosty.

    Seeing the same movie more than once.

    Watching too much of the NFL Network.

    Hearing Red Sox fans whine when their team tanks it.

    I would add watching porn, but somehow I don't feel guilty about that. :D

    wish I had a Texas accent to sing On Ikley Moor... still gonna try and learn the words and music though

    oh yeah, my guilty pleasure is singing Beatles songs in the shower... I'm sure the neighbors in the next apartment have a laugh every morning when I screw up the words to Mr. Kite.

    Cartoons, I love watching good old fashion cartoons, like Bugs Bunny, Yogi bear, (but Yogi, the ranger isn't gonna like it.) I hate mighty mouse and don't like Tom & Jerry, but I love Pixie and Dixie. And I'm Pi$$ed that the PC police killed Speedy Gonzales. The Cartoons from the 30's and early 40's fancinate me, long before computers, the craftmenship and artristry is simple brilliant. You can see what I mean on TMC early Saturday mornings

    I don't sense much guilt here.
