This weekend I was told by someone that my blog was their guilty pleasure which actually made me smile to know there are people out there that enjoy my...well...ramblings. This person isn't someone I thought would like my blog for a number of reasons but I guess that's the beauty of having guilty pleasures... we like the things people wouldn't expect us to or things we really shouldn't!!
I shared with her that this song was one of my current guilty pleasures
The reason I shared this guilty pleasure with her is because the words in this song have a significant relevance to what connects us to each other.
Thinking about this all afternoon I started to realise I had other things that I could class as guilty pleasures...maybe not actual things like songs or blogs but there are some things that could be class as one...
1. Up until I went away for the weekend almost a year ago with my friends I was a clinical "showerer" (not a word I know but you'll get what I mean), I would go in the shower, get clean and then get out again...I'm writing this thinking, what are people going to be thinking I'm going to reveal about my showers haha, I promise it's a Universal rating and nothing inappropriate haha....I remember being in the shower and I could hear Adele singing away in the bathroom next to the one I was in...I had no idea what was happening and was preeeeeetty sure of two things...1, Adele is not a friend of mine and 2, she definitely wasn't away for the weekend with us. THEN...I heard a duet going on with my friend singing away with Adele...it was only when I asked my friend if she was alone in the bathroom that I realised she had taken her phone into the bathroom to listen to music whilst she was in there...all I thought to myself was WHY HAD I NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS?...well now...my phone comes in the bathroom with me and I'm singing away in the bathroom thinking I'm the next big superstar haha...but it doesn't stop there...I've also started dancing away in the shower...I haven't gotten as far as using my shampoo bottle as a microphone though...yet haha...all I can say is I'm glad no-one can see me haha.
2. Those dysfunctional Geordies from Geordie Shore...I shouldn't like it but I do!! I don't know how or why the show shocks me or makes me laugh so much but it does...I'm almost certain the people on the show are no different to any other 18-23 year olds in any major city across the UK and I'm sure I see the same things they get up to every episode when I go out to the bars. Where I see people in front of me in bars dressing up like they should actually be walking the streets trying to earn a living as the 'norm', seeing it on my TV screen is quite shocking but so funny...I actually think it's because I find Charlotte weeing herself hilarious...I know I shouldn't but I just do!!
3. Singing in the car...I love it...I'm one of those that will sing and dance in the car...when I've been sat in traffic jams on the motorway with my friends I've been obliviously dancing and singing away like there's no one around...including doing choreographed dance moves...I've looked to my left and there's a group of guys in a minibus going to a football game laughing and copying the dance moves...so what do I do?...recoil into my seat and be embarrassed?...nope...I encourage them even more by dancing and singing more animatedly...but secretly I'm embarrassed as you can imagine haha...I've also been singing that hard in the car that another driver has thought that I was saying / shouting something to do them in annoyance at them and they've given me the finger...whoops!!
4. Selfies...yeah I'm one of those annoying girls who takes lots of selfies and has even been known to do the "duck face"...I'm so 2013!! haha. I've always been a fan of taking pictures of things I do and places I go and that has extended into taking a "few" selfies too...
|Coco Loooooves Meeeee|
|Quack Quack haha|
|Duck face gone wrong!! haha|
|Pat Butcher??? ;-) haha (sorry, inside joke haha)|
|What about Dot Cotton??? haha ;-)|
I'm sure there are so many guilty pleasures I have like my love Taylor Swift songs, for the Eurovision Song Contest even though I know it's a political mind field...despite this every year I think that it might be our year and we will win...I'm delusional!! haha...
