FIVE GUILTY PLEASURES: a MeMe.

Ground Rules: The first player of this "game" starts with the topic "5 Guilty Pleasures" and people who get tagged need to write an LJ entry about their 5 Guilty Pleasures as well as state this rule. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

Five Guilty Pleasures:

1) The Sudoku puzzles I sneak into my office on slow days if I don't get far enough before I reach the office.

2) The occasional ice cream I get as an afternoon treat, and I don't care if I look childish with an ice cream cone, damn it!

3) Watching professional wrestling. It's not the Monday night tradition it used to be, but it's still often enough (and lately, bad enough) that it's definitely not a pleasure I'm proud to acknowledge. It has its moments, but the WWE needs to get back to showing more quality matches.

4) My headphones. They let me block out the world, and I mean the ENTIRE world. I'm at one train station ... suddenly it's the end of the line. If I need to disavow the passage of time, music is my means.

5) Stretching the truth with people who don't know me. I can befriend total strangers and convince them of many things about me, none of which are necessarily true. From time to time, it has amused me to fake accents or backgrounds or personality quirks. For instance, I convinced a couple tourists on the train last week that I was originally Australian, from a small town they'd never heard of near Brisbane. I've even forgotten by now. This is the guiltiest pleasure of them all ... and the hardest to admit.

So ... next up ... I think I'll tag dasquish, ceri_blue, wmtrainguy, chrysalis, and xenia, if they're up for some meme-age.

well...
I have no problem doing this. The only issue I have it that I don't know 5 LJ user beyond most of those you named. That's a challenge....

I meant knock yourself out... I'm dumb.
Also you have interesting guilty pleasures.

I was surprised to find I enjoyed reading them.

Hey, go right ahead. I could only think of 4 people, so you can be my fifth. :)

And actually, "know yourself out" was pretty amusuing and accurate. I mean, I said I didn't "know" anyone, so instead of knocking myself out, "knowing" myself out my sense. :)

I like number 5 man. That I mean, I've done that before and I think we need to go out and do it together at some point. Eva and I have been wanting to do the "Man in the corner with the hat" geurilla theater thing for a while. We could take turns at the bars being the person in the corner that we all tell stories about. That would be awesome.
