    O.k., this IS embarrassing, but for the past three weeks, I have been watching a Beverly Hills 90210 DVD marathon. I'm currently on season 6 (Dylan's brand new wife was just killed in a hit ordered on him by her mobster father. :drama:)

    Yes, yes, very embarrassing, indeed... :eek::eek::eek:

    and you??

    I eat at least five grapefruit every day, and one morning last week I ate nine just for breakfast.

    I've been putting "sour cream" on everything from potatoes, sandwiches, salads, eggs...etc. I've been going through a pint every 2 weeks. And I hated it for the first 50 years of my life.

    In the middle of binge watching 5 seasons of "Misfits" on HuluPlus.

    I watched a small portion of Honey Boo Boo and found it entertaining.

    I will also watch any of the Next Top Model programs and record it so I don't miss any episodes.

    I started reading FanFictions about 2 months ago. These are short stories other people write about my favorite TV characters. :slinkaway:

    Hydro. We were without for over 4 days because of an ice storm here. So now that it's back everything is running full tilt. ;)

    Dawson's Creek. I wasn't allowed to watch it as a young teenager so I'm regressing to my teenage angsty self. Also, my crush on Joshua Jackson has been rekindled :)

    OMG...so many. I'm really into Gilmore Girls right now. And Chef Boyardee Beefaroni. I'm really excited for the new season of Dance Moms and I recently bought the new Miley Cyrus CD. :eek: I'm only a little ashamed.

    SHORT? Clearly, you are only dipping in your toes...My first Girl Genius story ("On Her Undying Majesty's Secret Service") is only slightly shorter by word count than an actual Ian Fleming novel. Try "An Archive of Our Own" if you want a little easier browsing than fanfiction.net which does tend to, well, have zero quality control. Though AOOO does allow "real-person" fic, which I don't really like as fictional characters are one thing but writing about real people who aren't dead and in the public domain creeps me out.

    I have no shame or guilt, obviously.

    18" dolls, specially ones that look like my daughters and me. It's difficult, my girls are 1/2 white 1/2 filipino and have completely mixed features. A lot of the dolls with brown hair and brown eyes still have really light skin. We have to look for Latin dolls since they are usually tanned with brown hair and eyes like my girls and they're hard to find. I've recently become "addicted" to finding/buying them. Mainly I'm really enjoying sewing clothes and shoes for them. Hubby thinks it's funny for a 37 year old to be sewing clothes for dolls but I told him to humor me, I deal with his bodybuilding crap, he can deal with my 3 dolls, lol.

    I can't resist reading those grocery store tabloids like Star, Us, In Touch, etc. I won't go so far as the Examiner, but I can't do without my trashy magazines! I just read them for the pretty clothes and makeup....right.......

    My 14 y.o. son reads those whenever we're at Target! He got the habit from hubby who got it from his Grandma. It's pretty funny, you see this kid with headphones reading those by a closed cashier stand, lol.

    Late night reruns of Married With Children.

    I also watch quite a bit of the Food Network but don't feel guilty about it. :)

    Others to admit - My strange addiction, Supersize vs Superskinny, Secret Eaters, Embarrassing Bodies (although this one does have a lot of useful information).

    It's not that I disbelieve you AW, but in what way are the bodies embarrassing and what kind of useful information does the programme have?

    It is a UK programme and they have just done an Australian version. Basically people with medical problems they have never got checked out because they have found them, well, embarrassing (usually in the private parts). There are doctors who look at the problems and recommend treatment and they follow the progress after they have been treated. Then they go over the facts about the problems and statistics about how many people might have them. Sort of ironic that people find their problems embarrassing but then put them on national TV.

    So whilst it is voyeuristic, you do get a lot of information and maybe feel not so bad about a minor condition you might have.

    Here is the website

    Married with Children never fails to crack me up! It's timeless. The actress (forget her name!) who played the ditsy next door neighbor lives up here in the North Georgia mountains near my house. Or she did. I used to see her in Rite Aid all the time. Really pretty lady.

    There is no such thing as a guilty pleasure. We deserve to enjoy whatever we like ;)

    Thus, I refuse to apologize for reading romance novels, or eating too many chocolates, or anything else.

    I am addicted to all those "Ghost Hunter" shows & the like. I watch 'em all, while having a total realization that these people are running around with night vision goggles & cameras waiting for something to happen or speak into their spirit boxes. Haunted Highway, Ghost Adventures, Ghost Mine, When Ghosts Attack........gosh, I have no life. The craziest one is with this woman "Amy" on "The Dead Files" who speaks & sees dead people. She is crazy as batshit! My aunt is addicted to them, too, and her husband makes fun of her habit.

    I guess I'm waiting for someone to actually record a full-body apparition who speaks directly to them while the hunters are not wearing night vision goggles.

    WWE Total Divas, the reality show. It's hilarious.

    And Sister Wives on TLC. Though that's waning. It's the same thing every season. "Our family is tense and everyone is so shocked by/judges us!"
