My guilty pleasure might not be a bad thing but I sometimes feel a little guilty about spending time doing this. Oh, I don't spend a whole lot of time, just a few minutes here and there. It doesn't hurt anybody or anything. I like, every now and then to read a gossip magazine. You know the kind, Us, People, National Enquirer. I don't go crazy with it and spend hours pouring over these magazines but I do find them a tad entertaining. It helps me relax and not be so driven. I read them because I find the information fun. I know they are evasive and not always what the cover claims to be but they are fun. Do you have a guilty pleasure? What is it?

It is nice to have a harmless guilty pleasure. I love shoes. I buy shoes. I have too many shoes. Yep, shoes are my guilty pleasure.

@Corbin5 I have a friend who can't seem to stop buying them. They are spilling out of her closet and into the bedroom.

@HazySue Well, you could hold an intervention for you and me. We have a problem!

@Corbin5 that's all I have to say about that. No it isn't, I don't really think of that as a problem, more of a pleasure.

I think it's chocolate. I don't buy sweets or snacks very often, but when I do I seem to go all out.

I spend a lot of time looking things online which I am clearly not going to buy.

@Blue_bubble I like to window shop too. I spend time looking at things I would like to have but don't get.

About the only time I read these types of magazines - or any magazines really - is in the hair-dressers. And then they are usually 12 months old which makes them even more entertaining.

@JudyEv if I buy one a month it's a lot. I like to go back and reread article that are so made up it's not funny.

@HazySue Our 'New Idea' made a deal with the tennis player Lleyton Hewitt. How they find stuff to write about the couple so often is beyond me.

@JudyEv It is amazing where they get their "information". I guess all of the polar opinions in the different magazine is what holds my attention.
