There’s nothing quite like life’s guilty pleasures. Here are a few of my most recent obsessions:
*Microwave popcorn: I’ve been eating a ton of it lately, and not just any microwave popcorn- movie theater butter. And because it’s so salty, it needs to be followed with something sweet. Even better!
*HGTV: I feel old, but I friggin’ love HGTV. I’m desperate to get on Curb Appeal, but they’re only looking for people in San Francisco :( I’m obsessed… shows about buying houses, selling houses, staging houses, remodeling houses. I can’t explain it. I own a home, but it’s not like I watch these shows and get super good ideas. I’m not that handy. But I do watch the shows and think, Can they come to MY house and do that?
*Sex and the City: With things so stressful during of the academy, I spend a lot of my alone time curled up in bed with the pups, getting lost in one of the seasons. This is my happy place. This is the thing I do for myself, to recharge, and to think of something besides work and the academy.
*Fuggs: I refuse to spend money on real Uggs, and luckily there a lot of knockoffs to choose from these days. My current obsession is the cable knit pair I got at Old Navy for $30. They look exactly like a pair of real Uggs I’d been eyeing for a while. True, they’re kind of goofy-looking and I feel like I’m wearing slippers to work, but they are SO warm and cozy that it’s worth it.
*Ke$ha: I used to hate her songs, especially because they’re so overplayed. Then, one day, JD did a little dance to one of her tunes while we were in the car, and ever since then, I actually enjoy listening to some of her stuff. It reminds me of my super-masculine husband bouncing around singing in a high-pitched voice. Good times.
