THURSDAY THIRTEEN # 16 . . . 13 GUILTY PLEASURES . . .

1) Tyson Beckford Calendars (For those of you who don't know, he's a pretty boy model. Hey, even a old girl has to have a little beefcake every now and then.)

2) Godiva Turtles (The hubby likes buying these for me on special occasion even though we both know they go straight to the hips and thighs.)

3) Girl Scout Cookies (Thin Mints and Trefoils. Need I say more?)

4) The Best of Soul Train (Yes, WGN shows old episodes of the program on Saturday afternoon. It's nice to revist those days when folks really danced rather than simulated various positions from the Karma Sutra.)

5) Oprah (I don't care what y'all say. Opie is all right by me. The best thing about living in Charlotte is that her show comes on twice--at 4pm and 9pm.)

6) General Foods Coffee (The Hazelnut Belgian is actually the only coffee I'll drink at the moment)

7) Men with Facial Hair (Don't ask. It's a fetish.)

8) Head Gear (I'm a hat, cap and scarf kind of gal. And there's nothing more I love than a guy who knows how to sport a tilted brim.)

9) Arbor Mist (Yeah, it's cheap, fruity and ghetto as all get out. So, is that, like, a problem?)

10) Lavender (Lotion, body wash, candles, shampoo, air freshners, doesn't matter. I just love the scent.)

11) Black Sitcoms from Back In the Day (Martin, A Different World, Cosby, Sanford & Son. Half the mess passing for such now, makes my head hurt.)

12) VH1 SOUL (I love R & B and hiphop music videos. Actually, it's the way I prefer to hear most new music. Sadly, Charlotte doesn't offer this as a cable option. Now, I have to wait unitl I'm in Memphis in order to partake or go with the Music Choice Channels where I can listen, but don't get the videos. Sheesh!

13) Blue Bell Ice Cream (They didn't sell this in Cleveland, so I was denied the pleasure for four, long years. Even though you have to search, you can find it in Charlotte. The home-made vanilla tastes nearly as good as grandma's.)

I have a long list of others, but since it's Thursday 13 . . . So do we share any guilty pleasures? No (smile). Well, do you have any as odd as mine? If so, do you dare share them?

I read your #7 and I thought "This woman has excellent taste!"

Emanuel Carpenter said...

Arbor Mist. Heck yeah! I rarely drink except for on a special occasion, and Arbor Mist is one of those drinks.

Classic Soul Train. Right there with you.

VH1 SOUL. Now that you can pretty much watch any music video on Youtube or Yahoo Videos, I don't even watch music video TV shows anymore. You should try it. Now my kid gets the Internet on his Playstation 3 so we can still watch Youtube on the big screen. Pretty cool.

Blue Bell Ice Cream. Sounds yummy! We might not have it here in Cleveland but ya'll can't go sledding down a big snow hill like I saw all the kids doing yesterday. When I get off my diet, I might have to try some of that. We have Handel's here in Cleveland. You heard of it?

Cheerio said...

I don't know about the others but Oprah for me is pretty cool.

I'm in my 50s and still like beefcake too. Hope I always do. Godiva Turtles are yummy. I loved watching Sanford & Son. Redd Foxx was a hoot. Sly as a fox mostly. Great list. Have a wonderful TT and Valentine's Day. :)

My husband has a very handsome beard. Happy TT.

Adelle said...

This time of year, it's those little mini easter eggs, oh my! Fun list. Happy Valentine's Day!

I also watch "The Best of Soul Train" on the weekends on WGN. I wish that they would go back farther and show some of the ones when Don had the super fro. My favorite General Foods Coffee flavor is Suisse Mocha.

Since I don't have any guilt about the two above, I will come clean and admit to watching "Hannah Montana" on occasion. I know it's a silly sitcom, but it makes me laugh. Plus, some of those songs are pretty catchy.

I have hubby pretty well in the habit of facial hair nowadays and chocolate is always always welcome

Happy Th13

Jill said...

i was eating one just a minute ago: Double chocolate muffin! I even adore the dough!!This I was ccraving and had to do some!
And for the beard I hope it's not a like footlong one!

Sandy Carlson said...

I love lavender, too. Can't get enough of it. Try Norfolk Lavender for whatever you like about that stuff. It's the best! Great list.

Cricket's Hearth said...

I love chocolate dipped strawberries. The tuxedo ones are the best! Happy Valentine's Day!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I think I really like your attitude. That may not be coming out right, but ... this is the first time I've stopped by and all I can think is, "This woman is FUN."

Have a great TT. And nope, I'm not sharing any guilty pleasures. Sorry.

Bethany said...

Oh my gosh, Girl Scout cookies!!!! I haven't had them in years but ordered some from work a few weeks ago....wonder when they'll come in?!!? :D

pjazzypar said...

I am with you on everything but the Arbor Mist. There ain't nothing like a Godiva chocolate, absolutely nothing. I never had Blue Blue Ice Cream, but I think they have it here in Dallas, so I will have to give it a try. Facial hair on a man is so attractive. Not so much on women though.

No Nonsense Girl said...

Great list...

I would add kisses on my neck and a very naughty guilty pleasure? Having a man kiss and lick my ear lobe. ;)

Can't believe I've shared this! :D

Journeywoman said...

YAY Thin Mints!

(I also like #3 in your Sunday Best. )

I miss Martin, too! I grew up watching that and the Cosby show. I watched Sanford & Son on repeats when I was older.

And Tyson Beckford! Can you say hottie??!

My TT is 13 love songs that you can listen to in the post. Happy TT & Valentine's!

I always love your lists... Arbor mist - yikes!

For me it's 80s music and horror, and good scotch.
