My number one guilty pleasure.

"guilty pleasure"

  1. something, such as a film, television programme, or piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard.

I don't believe in guilty pleasures.

If something is a pleasure, then why should you feel guilty about it? The only reason you may feel guilty is that you think someone else doesn't think it's worth your appreciation, but why does anyone else get to decide what you should and shouldn't like?

In reality everything that you think is great, someone else thinks is poor, so everything can be classified as a guilty pleasure, rendering the phrase useless.

Like what you want, do what you want. Providing that it doesn't negatively interfere with anyone else everything is fair game.

I like the Spice Girls, more of the earlier material, but it's all enjoyable. I'd reccomend the greatest hits, it really is great. I went to see them at the Birmingham NEC on the Spiceworld Tour when I was about 13. Geri Horner locked eyes with me for at least 3 seconds, our fate was sealed.

What is your non-guilty pleasure?

Speak to you on Friday,
