Procrastinating the Inevitable...

Guilty Pleasures...

By thePatrick

So, a couple of my coworkers, friends, folks who I need to jam with more often gave me the inspiration for this blog, seeing how they both did this exact same thing. So, the following is a list of some things that I can't live without, no matter how much I should. They are presented in no particular order, other than the order I thought them up.

1) Haribo Mini Rainbow Frogs
Sweet merciful heaven, these things are addicting. And, as opposed to other candies, just when I think that I must be done, there are more. On any road trip of any distance where Christy and I stop for some snacks, if there are any in the store, then they will be purchased by me.2) Vitamin Water - Essential
There is a reason that they named the Orange flavored Vitamin Water "Essential." I love that stuff. If I have some extra cash on campus, or if I am working a grave, I can pretty much guarantee that there will be a bottle of this with me.3) The Deftones
I am of the belief that many people are angry, but due to the norms or society, they keep their emotions bottled up. For example, I don't hop out of my car with a crowbar to severely beat the dimwitted individual who just cut me off and slammed on their breaks for the yellow light. Instead, I listen to the Deftones. Especially their Around the Fur album. 4) Alternative Press Magazine
So, I got addicted to Alternative Press when I was in Iraq. It was amazing that I found a magazine that actually talked about the bands and type of music that I was into. In another country. I probably should subscribe, but I think I would feel guilty asking Christy to let me subscribe to a magazine that's just for me.5) The Venture Bros.
So, I don't have TV. That's okay, because Adult Swim posts every episode of The Venture Bros. online before it airs on television. This is hands down, the best cartoon that I have seen in a long time. And Christy can even tolerate it in short bursts. 6) Fruit Snacks
While I wish I could just eat Mini Rainbow Frogs all the time, Fruit Snacks at least give me the illusion of being semi healthy. I mean, it has fruit right in the name! I don't care what brand it is, or if they are in the shape of fruit, smiles, or little cartoon characters, I am going to eat them.7) MLB 08 The Show
Just ask my wife. There are a few things that I like to do to relax. Most of those things involve playing this game on our PS2 (we're old school). I play a lot. And I mean a lot. So much that Christy hates every single song that is on the soundtrack. It is proof that she loves me, because she is the one that bought the game for me. Sometimes, I think she regrets.9) Killer Bunnies
This game rules. It can last for hours, get people so pissed off that they swear at their own spouse, and I love every minute of it. Those bunnies are evil, but addicting. If you want to play, give me a shout. Seriously.10) Hitting the Snooze Button
I do this. Multiple Times. I am not a morning person. I have no idea how I survived the Army. Let's just say that it's a good thing I work a swing shift. I quote this from the site I found this picture:

"The snooze button is 1) a reaction against a too-strict regulation of sleep, 2) an addictive crutch that enables sloth without the social repercussions, 3) a tool that allows transnavigation between waking and dreaming thus giving access to the hypnagogic state."
Couldn't have said it better myself.
So, I think that's enough. I mean, I feel really guilty. At least I would if I still had a conscience. Either way, feel free to follow my lead. It's kind of a relief to get all that out there.


Venture bros kick ass, and so do you.

Soooo....about that jamming thing. Not this weekend, though, but soon...SOON!!!

I can't believe that you didn't include Broccoli on there I know how much you are a fan of that funny little green tree-like veggie (oh wait, maybe that's it, it was a veggie free post)
