Shopping for myself. (does that count?) I don't do it often and I feel so guilty about it when I do. I have this cloud of "This money could be better spent elsewhere..." over my head the whole time, even if the money is specifically meant for it, but I still enjoy it now and again.

Enjoy your video games, Mitch! One of the great things about having a kid who likes them too is that I get to play the games right along with him...

Shopping certainly counts! I'm the same way...I feel tremendously guilty shopping for myself, but I enjoy it. This is part of the reason why I love thrift store shopping--the same thrill and pleasure of shopping, but the small price tags make me feel like I'm not spending too much.

Oh - and I never miss American Idol. It starts next week!

Oh yes, AI. Last season was so bad we stopped watching, so I'm not sure we'll follow it this season.

But "24"--that's another story...can't wait for Sunday.

Challenge-based reality tv is a big guilty pleasure for me: Survivor and The Amazing Race, primarily, but I also enjoy the cooking challenges, like Top Chef.

I keep hearing so many things about Survivor and Amazing Race, but I guess I'm too rooted in the fantasy/fiction world...I have watched Gordon Ramsay, though...
