Top 5 Guilty Pleasures

Everyone has those guilty pleasures. The one’s there super embarrassed about or the one’s there proud of.

Either way…here’s my top 5. (Trust me I could list more)

5) 90s TV shows

Thanks to youtube I can watch all my favorite shows from the 90s. I find when I’m stressed out or overwhelmed I kind of just want to curl on my bed and watch some old skool faves.

Most recently, I have been catching up on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. This show…was amazing. I mean who wouldn’t want to be a teenage witch? Recently my friends and I were discussing this in the caf how good the show was. Plus, Salem was HILARIOUS. A talking cat = amazingness!!

Even though he looked pretty fake, his dry wit was superb.

Also…you can give my older bro Eric credit on this one but I have been watching episodes of Justice League and X-men on online.

And wow…those shows are EPIC! Like, it’s kind of a problem. I can’t stop watching them.

Flash from Justice League makes me laugh so hard! He’s incredibly funny. This was probably my favourite quote by him.

Flash: Let’s see, after I caught the gorilla, he told me that…

Green Lantern: He talked to you?

Flash: Yeah, right after I stopped his car.

Green Lantern: I’m supposed to believe this?

Flash: Hey, we’ve both got a Martian’s phone number on our speed dial. I think I deserve the benefit of the doubt here.

Like how is that not funny? I laughed so hard! Oh my gosh….I’m still laughing like its ridiculous. But gotta love it!

And Gambit from X-men…take me on a trip to sexy town cause he’s be the mayor!!

He’s my cartoon crush ❤

Also…

Power Rangers.

That is all.

4) Starbucks

Okay…so it’s not really geeky but this guilty pleasure of mine is money consuming.

But I can’t help it, I’m addicted. It doesn’t help that near my house in Etobicoke there are two Starbucks’s within a ten minute walk.

Whenever I’m out taking a walk and listening to some tunes, my feet always lead the way to Starbucks.

It’s also a big social hangout as well. Whenever I meet up with a friend, it’s usually at Starbucks. Just saying…it’s the place to be in the e-tobes.

My fave drink would have to be the caramel frappuchino. It’s yummy.

3) Tabloid Magazines

Ugh…again also money consuming. It’s pretty bad as soon as I see a tabloid magazine with Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner or anyone I really like. I gasp, pick up the magazine, gaze at it and then buy it.

After I’m done reading them I usually recycle the magazines, but there are a few I like to keep. Heheheh.

2) Twilight

I’m going to get a great deal of hate for this one… I know it.

But I would just like to point out I read the books BEFORE they got popular. I remember I finished Twilight on the drive to Fredericton in 2007. I looked over at my dad and said,

“Oh my gosh. Can we stop off at the next Chapters?”

Of course, there weren’t any Chapters for a while…and I eventually got my hands on New Moon.

But I’m a big vampire fanatic and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the romance between Bella and Edward. It makes me smile:)

And the movie has Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in it…enough said.

1)      Harry Potter

Of course this is my number 1 guilty pleasure.

I am a huge Harry Potter fanatic.  I’m the type of fan that goes to see the movie on opening day, and when comes to push and shove I will take a bitch down…all for Harry Potter.

I pre-order the books.

I get upset when something happens that I don’t like and I will throw the book at the wall and not read it for a couple of days.

I cry when characters die.

I read books such as, If Aristotle ran Hogwarts and Harry Potter and International Relations.

I use Harry Potter pick up lines to my friends.

A few of my faves are:

I don’t have an invisibility cloak but do you think tonight I can visit your restricted section?

I want to get my basilisk into your chamber of secrets.

Want to go to the Hog’s Head, if you know what I mean?

Yeah…these actually exist.

And wait for it….wait for it…

I will line up and eagerly wait to meet a Harry Potter actor. (This will be its own post sometime soon)

These are my top five guilty pleasures.

So…what are yours?
