    We all have them - let's get them out into the open (at least hint at those you wanna keep secret).

    Star Trek novels, TV series, and culture
    Vintage radio broadcasts (Horror, strange tales, comedy etc) up till the 80's
    The music of Lady Gaga, Pink, and Christie and The Tremeloes
    Weird, terrifying Asian foods - Japanese Puffer fish (1 milligram of it's poison is 1250 times deadlier than cyanide), Stinky tofu (makes decomposing coyote and skunk spray seem like Chanel No 5), Thousand year egg (Black eggs either fermented in dirt for a very long time or treated in a solution of lye and soy sauce).
    K(orean)-Pop
    Gefilte fish and matzo ball soup
    Cold weather/rainy days (provided I am sufficiently prepared for it)
    Dynasty/Dallas

    More to be listed in abit...

    It used to be Real Housewives... I don't quite get into it anymore because it seems to mostly be a bunch of people shouting and fighting with each other over absolutely nothing, and that's no fun.
    I don't know if I have anything else after that. House Hunters? LOL. If there's nothing else on TV, House Hunters is usually on... best background noise television ever, haha.

    Video games. Even bad video games. Shooters, MMOs, strategy, doesn't matter, I play them. If I have a bad day, I probably want to come home and play some games.

    To a much lesser degree - Kpop/Jpop, cartoons, sleeping all **** day (ha, like I get to do this anymore) and smoking.

    It's hard to think of one that's a guilty pleasure, I'm pretty open about my geekery.

    Going to author signings? Um...

    Hmm...

    Fish head soup made of salmon heads? Does that count? Or catching a fish full of roe, because that means I get to eat the roe. Nom. One time I bought a big package of eulachon and half of them had roe. That was awesome.

    -The Vampire Diaries. Its just so ridiculous, but I love it.
    -Um... Lord of the Rings Online. I don't get into video/computer games much, but I'll play that from time to time.
    -Oh, this is probably the worst: when my extended family has horrible, bitchy fights all over Facebook I stalk them. Never participate, but I'll read all the gory details and watch the ripple effect and passive aggressive reference posts.

    Video games, anime, comics, fountain pens.

    I guess my big thing is solitude. I'll go fishing on my own, hiking. Sometimes I'll pull over in the middle of no where and go wandering. I just love being alone and experiencing amazing places and things by myself. I get why people like having companions but for me the total silence is the closest thing to heaven I can get to on earth.

    Rewatching sitcoms I've seen before while eating food out of a bowl propped on my chest.

    My boyfriend calls it the 'sad baby otter' routine.

    Love fountain pens -- but I don't feel the least bit guilty ;)

    The solitude thing . . . When I worked in the law office with several people on staff I'd wait and take my lunch at an odd time so I could go alone. That was time to decompress, take a book and recharge. A book at a quiet little Chinese restaurant there was WAY better than having to listen to office gossip, sniping and general bitchery and griping about Dave (the main attorney).

    None of the Chinese restaurants that are any good around here are ever quiet...lol

    My list continued...

    Dematting my dog (indeed) - nothing like getting that mat remover into a good knot, pulling it out and having that mat break into bits in my hand. Ahh....

    Dark chocolate (><)
    Expensive things
    Books I like to have on my shelf but read at a very slow rate
    Picking at scabs (my own or someone really close to me) - once during a sleepover I picked at my girlfriend's knee scab while she flipped thru fashion magazines and watched movies on my laptop. Yes - I am gross.
    Reading in the bathroom
    Singing in the shower/bath
    Calling my dog "bug-a-boo" while cuddling her
    Yelling at the TV at tense points during dramas/movies
    Spam - fried, baked, microwaved or toasted.
    The Theme song to The Jefferson's!

    To a dee-luxe apartment, in the skyyyyy!

    Hot showers. Can't deny that. I'd live in a hot shower if I could.
    Video Games. Everything from BlazeBlu to Mass Effect, to Morrowind and even The Sims 3.
    Staying up late, sleeping until noon.
    Red hair. I have naturally auburn hair, but I like spicing it up. Red is the hardest color to maintain, though.
    Make-up. I enjoy art, so this is a pretty easy outlet when I want hands on instead of computer/tech.

    It drives other people crazy, but I have secret delight in figuring out plots in storylines. And I usually succeed, because I'm a writer and I usually know where that goes.

    And, in tandem, I enjoy random, thrilling stories that I can't figure out the most. They are typically books and movies everyone else hates, though.

    Were we separated at birth? :D

    The good ones are here ;) No one speaks much English, and the older generations that are usually the owner/operators still have the traditional view of redheaded people being sorcerous . . . so they treat me very well, especially after I've been there a few times. ;)

    Sadly, since going gluten free, Chinese restaurants are pretty much out. But they treat me really well at the Mexican restaurants too :)

    Add one more person for stinky tofu (although normal tofu is sh*t). Grew up with it, can't change now - and won't. I have to brush my teeth twice and take a shower after I eat it if I want to go out in public, though. That's how bad I think it smells :rofl1:

    Vampire Diaries, too. And Game of Thrones. Don't tell my friends :p

    Oh, AND agree on the dog forums thing. I'm a total forum wh*re, and won't admit to it in real life. Can't even talk dogs to my friends.

    On the topic of Asian associated foods, bubble tea? My friend got me hooked this summer.

    Sleeping. I would sleep 20 hours a day if someone let me.

    Ahh! This is so much like me.

    I guess my guilty pleasure is probably crappy pop songs. And Glee- although I'm not embarrassed at all about that.

    And Disney. I can't even... my obsession with Disney is almost sick. I will save up money as long as I can until I get to go to Disneyland/World again, I watch Disney movies all the time (Currently watching Pocahontas). I am a Disney ADDICT!
