Weekly Geeks - Guilty Pleasures

This week's Weekly Geek question is:

What's your non-reading guilty pleasure?
Trashy TV?
Trashier movies?
Junk food?

Here's my answer:

Internet: I'm absolutely addicted to the internet. Whether I'm blogging, twittering, facebooking, youtube-ing, or spending hours on Wikipedia, I spend the majority of my free time on here. I like to think I'm the kind of person who wouldn't be too bothered if the internet was taken away from me for a week but, the truth is, I'd probably suffer from withdrawls after the first couple of hours. How sad!

Junk Food: I have a strict vegan diet which makes me feel wonderful, and I'm very good at preparing my own dinner full of vegetables, fruits, beans, soya, etc. But, there are those days when everyone needs their junk food fix. Chocolate (dairy free), Pringles, fried rice, cookies (dairy free), waffles, veggie burgers, toasties ... you name it, I'm there. I love the stuff! A girl knows what she wants and nothing gets in my way ;) .

Chat shows: The Jeremy Kyle Show and Maury fall into this category. I love them because they're so utterly ridiculous! I love seeing women turn up on the shows for the fifth time with the sixth and seventh man to try and get a DNA test that'll come out positive. Pure trash - brilliant!

Isolation: Whether it's locking myself away in my room or going for a walk in the park, I love having those rare moments to myself when I can be completely whisked away by my thoughts.
