Guilty Pleasures

I saw a thread in another forum with this title and I thought people who have been around for a long time must have perfected this concept so I thought we should start our own thread.

Here are a couple of mine:

Kit Kat bars (spontaneous purchase of one bar but only if I happen to be in a drug store)
Listening to Fergalicious (Fergie)
Training on a carbon wheelset

In no particular heirarchy. . .

1. Endorphins honestly earned.
2. Flirting with somebody's grandmother.
3. Talking earnestly with the dog and watching her face as she tries desparately to extract meaning from it*.
4. Knob Creek sour mash whisky.
5. Getting away of a week day into the mountains deep enough to listen to the ravens' voices echoing off the granite.

* - Of course, in this she's not much different than most of the folks around me.

A bowl of Stewarts Peanut Butter pandemonium ice cream.
I find it is the ultimate carbo load the night before a long club ride.
I did this before last weekends club ride and stayed with the pack leaders,
65 miles with an average speed of 18.8 mph and only one rest stop.

No order of ranking:

-Lost in Space. (First season, black and white episodes only, thank you)

-All those Monster/science fiction movies that were made for the Drive-in format, back in the 50's.
I'm talking "Brain From Planet Arous" type stuff.

-Fudgee-O's. (From Canada. A friend smuggles a few bags across the Nuetral Zone for me, when he makes periodic trips up there. Too bad they won't sell them in the U.S. )

-My own special chocolate Ice Cream Soda. Cures any and all problems you might have, no prescription needed. I'll post the recipe here on request.

Spill it, trackhub--the recipe, not the soda.

A jar of Nutella, a spoon, and a Harry Potter book.

Skipping the weekly office meeting for a tough, rewarding training ride.

Buying clothes I don't need because they make me feel good (and they look good on me, too )

A glass of Madeira and a good cigar, recapping a particularly-satisfying ride.

A nap when I should be doing anything else but.
