Guilty Pleasures

This is something I started on the Liberal Youth Forum* and think it’d be a good meme.

Basically, all you do is list those things that you like or love that you or others think you really, really shouldn’t.

I’m new to the blogosphere, so I’m not going to tag or link to people. This can be one that people just pick up if they want to or more importantly have the guts to admit to their guitly pleasures.

Think of it as blog based group therapy.

Here  the ones I’ve owned up to so far:

Lads Mags
American sitcoms that are cancelled after one or two seasons
Catherine Townsend’s ‘Sleeping Around’ column in The Independent
The Volkswagen Passat
Stargate SG-1
Kebabs (If possible a mixed with cheese from Denis Kebab van in Headington, Oxford)
Tea (I drink way too much)
Cleaning my ears
Ultimate Force
The O.C.
One Tree Hill
Britney Spears (I have every album prior to Greatest Hits)
The life and work of Rex Harrison
A good caper film or novel (I recommend Christopher Brookmyre’s ‘The Sacred Art of Stealing’ for a great contemporary one)
Kate Middleton
Fashion programmes featuring Gok Wan or Trinny & Susannah
Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls
Diagnosis Murder
A good, crisp and unblemished notebook

So go own up, before a tabloid expose or Piers Morgan GQ interview get you first.

*The Liberal Youth Forum is open to not just to Liberal Youth members, but to other Lib Dems, members of other parties and everyone else in general. Why not have a look a round and join in the discussion.



  1. D’oh god, what’s an N-Dubz?

  2. They’re a British hip hop group from Camden

  3. What’s wrong with drinking vast quantities of tea? It’s my fuel; I swear I wouldn’t function without it …
