So on Monday, Danielle and I decided to go to Starbucks and catch up for coffee. You know the usual.
Before I left the house my mom stopped me and asked if I could buy some coffee for her.
I said sure and she wrote down on a post note her order lol, cause knowing me I’d get up to the cash and be like uhhhh what was it again?
So Danielle and I enter Starbucks and it’s pretty nice day out so everybody’s buying cold drinks and having a good time.
Danielle orders first and then me.
I ask for a grande iced caramel macchiato and just hand over the post it note to the hot starbucks bartista.
He laughs a little and goes to make the coffee for my mom.
I pay for my order and get the coffee.
The bartista and I smile at each other for a while until i turn around and SMACK bump right into someone.
I rock at life..yepp!
I turn beet red and apologize but the man didn’t say anything and just walked straight out the door like he was a man on a mission.
“Ugh some people are such jerks,” comments Danielle.
And I couldn’t agree more.
People really can be jerks sometimes. It sucks.
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 ❤
That is all.
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.
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?
