Weekly Geeks June 1: Guilty Pleasures

How great to finally have the time to participate in Weekly Geeks again - and with this week's topic it couldn't be a better way to start. Its Maree who is hosting this week's topic:

So. Weekly Geeks, we're going into the confessional this week.

What's your non-reading guilty pleasure?

Trashy TV? Trashier movies? Junk food?

Okay, one of my guilty pleasures is, like many others, to watch very trashy reality TV/docu-soaps. I do wonder why I want to see teenage moms giving birth to their 3rd child before they are 16, single's dating shows and stuff like that, but I do. I will not list the shows I watch, because they are mainly Danish. But they are trashy and good ;o)

Another rather guilty pleasure is listening to hip hop. I am NOT the target-group for this certain genre, neither the age-group. LOL. I just love to go with that swinging flow, put my hands up in the air and say YO. Actually have a nice collection of CDs and have been to quite a lot of concerts as well.
And like so many others, I adore shoes. Its not that I could ever afford a 600 dollar pair of stilettoes, but one can dream, right?

This was a great post, mostly because I would have never guessed that you were a hip hop fan, that's cool! I've never been into it myself, but I love finding out people who love things that they aren't at all the audience for.

And awesome shoes too -- I'd love those if I weren't such a klutz.

Can you actually walk in those? I'm amazed. If I wear anything but flats, I end up tripping over my own two feet, and creating a spectacle of myself. I've given up.

Trashy & good TV shows... hmm... I went through a phase of watching Hannah Montana. It lasted about a week, and it's almost embarrassing, admitting that. (Please don't judge me!)

Louise said...

Thanks for your comments - and I try not to be judgemental towards anyone, despite them watching Hannah Montana :-) Just kidding ;-)

Maree said...

I'm really loving everyone's posts to see what comes out. I wouldn't have picked hip hop either.
Happy Weekly Geeks! :)

Louise said...

Actually, my hip hop guilty pleasure has lessened a bit over the past years. It was more fun when it was sort of "shocking" if you know what I mean (except I actually LIKE it, I didn't just pick it up as a "I wanna feel special thing"). Nowadays even highly literate journalists dissect hip hop texts in the book sections of the papers, people do academic papers on hip hop etc.

:-)

How fun! I love shoes too, but mine are all different types of flats.

Jodie said...

Sigh shoes - I'm gradually getting that stillettos may not be the way to go for me (I need a bit more of a heel like those shoes at the bottom) but I think that just emans we should go places I can sit down.

Kristina said...

I never thought of you as the hip hop type....that's so neat!

Louise said...

LOL, Kristina, I never thought that about myself either ;o)

Jodie, I know what you mean, and I myself also need a bit more of a heel and not just a stiletto...

Beth, I love flats as well!

What a great post! I didn't participate in this week's assignment because my only guilty pleasure that I'm admitting to is eating chocolate. =)

Louise said...

Vasilly, I think a lot has that certain chocolate problem ;o)

Dorte H said...

As I have absolutely no bad habits, I just could not participate this week ;)
I do enjoy reading about everybody elses´, though LOL

Louise said...

Heheheh, Dorte, we are not talking about bad habits like chewing nails and smoking and stuff like that, are we?

Dorte H said...

It is quite difficult to know which bad habits we are NOT talking about (scratching my head).

But don´t ask my husband or children - they exaggerate so!

Louise said...

I feel its more the: "I love reading cheap and dirty romance books, but shhhh, don't tell no one-kind" we are looking for ;o)
