I'm queen of misrule on the Tuesday Blog Hop this week. Typically I want everyone's dirty secrets, but today I'll settle for knowing their secret passions, those guilty pleasures we all have.
Welcome over from that dark horse Jo Richardson, I bet she has all sorts of guilty secrets she confessed to. Actually, Jo is one of the loveliest people I know, she puts the bitch in me totally to shame, so I'm hoping for a whopper of a secret from her.
In turn I have to confess my guilty pleasures.
Way, way, way back when I was in university, my guilty pleasure used to be romance novels. Instead of studying, I would read from the hidden stash under my bed. We had a book exchange near where I lived, and I could go along with a shopping bag and buy an entire exam schedule's worth.
I moved on to Fantasy novels and B-Grade Fantasy movies. Where I grew up in Johannesburg they would come on after midnight and play through the wee hours. Classics like "Willow", "Conan the Barbarian", "Excalibur", "Dragon Slayer".
I'll still catch one of those if I can, but they're a lot harder to find these days and with all the really great fantasy movies at the moment, I no longer have to go cheesy for my fix.
And now, it's shoes. I love pretty shoes in a way that has no bearing on my lifestyle. I can count on one hand the opportunities I get to wear CFM heels, but the love affair continues undeterred. My girls are on shoe watch every time we hit the mall. There is always just that one pair that I can't resist. I have an entire Pinterest board devoted to my passion.
I'm going to take a swing in the dark here and guess that Leslie Hachtel, who is coming up at the next hop shares my slavish addiction to Shoe Porn.
Any guilty pleasures you feel brave enough to confess?
