    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'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.

    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.

    Now this is very embarrassing but I've been watching an old (that is, from 2001) Taiwanese drama, "Meteor Garden"
    Some crap acting and plotlines, but hey, what wouldn't I do to pick up some Mandarin xD

    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.
