When I looked at this topic, I realized that many of the themes we've been writing about here on the OGG blog are quite similar. I blogged about "weaknesses" on 6/30/12, and here's what I talked about:
8/25/15 saw me blogging about "naughtiness". Again, pretty much the same thing and I came up with....food. Specifically, pot brownies, red wine, nuts and Manchego cheese.
And Regency romance.
9/22/15: the topic was personal demons, and I named (again) men, red wine, and brownies.
So have my guilty pleasures changed in the last six months?
Not really, except that I have a lovely boyfriend who gives me a tremendous amount of pleasure without a shred of guilt.
My weight is what it should be, so if I want red wine, Manchego cheese and brownies, I can indulge--again, without guilt. At least not much.
Smokables? I have a prescription. Not breaking the law, so no guilt. (Not that I have felt guilty about that since I was seventeen).
Regency romance? The one Regency novel I wrote has consistently sold very well, so I want to write another. I am, therefore, reading in my genre. So no guilt.
I'd say right now I feel most guilty about being a lapsed vegetarian. I think the farm system is vicious and cruel, and I really shouldn't eat farmed meat. But I do, and I don't feel especially good about it.
Out of guilt, I buy most of the meat I eat from Whole Foods, where they swear that the animal flesh they sell has been sustainably raised and ethically killed.
But you know what? Dead's dead.
|The meal my fabulous BF made for me on V-Day.|
It was delicious.
And my BF assured me that it was a happy New Zealand lamb
that was sustainably raised and painlessly killed.
Still feeling guilty.
