Equally guilty here. Except mine are cheesy suspense or spy novels. Oh, and for Kobo.

Miscellanous mystery stories. They're not all cheesy; but some of them sure are.

I'll second this, and in case yours didn't include it, broaden it to TV shows as well as books.

I also like mysteries, including some cheesy cozies. And Friends reruns. And I can think of a few not-so-great movies that I'll stop to watch if I come across them -- He's Not That Into You, for example.

I am married to a man whose favorite show is iCarley. Admittedly the theme song is catchy.

My name is Sue and :low voice: I'm addicted to corny made for TV Christmas movies. I PVR them and have corny Christmas movie marathons. They have to be really bad for me to not watch.

I like Love, Actually. I will stop to watch it when it's on. I don't care that it's trendy to hate it. Mr S and I quote it to each other.

I think The Muppet Christmas Carol is better than the version with Alistair Sims. I also really like Scrooge (not Scrooged), even the surreal scene (usually deleted for TV) where Scrooge goes to *ell.

I only read quality space opera action novels, thank you very much.

Also, post apocalyptic earth opera novels.

On another (minor) confession topic: I've noticed that my accuracy target for spelling has degraded to "close enough that spell checker or Google guessing will figure out what I mean".

The comments are the best part of any advice column, IMO. Most columnists seem to be crap at actual advice, but the crowd in the comments is better. Are we not supposed to like advice columns?

I also think the Muppet Christmas Carol is better than the Alistair Sims version. The Muppet version is my favorite version of it - we watch it every year.

I honestly don't know how long it's been since I cleaned my shower. I've been cleaning the bathroom for 30 minutes now. It's still gross. I'm ashamed of myself.

Another advice column junkie here. The comments on Dan Savage and Carolyn Hax's columns are sometimes worth reading, IMO.

This was me yesterday. However, I did not finish the cleaning. Part 2 has to be this weekend.

Ugh, it was bad.

I've got a big project coming up so I cleaned my garage/work shed for the first time in .... a year? Maybe longer? I also use it for storage so there were bikes and boxes of stuff just piled onto the old bits of cutoff wood and piles of sawdust and crap which was covering the entire floor. It was at the stage where if I was working on a small project and a screw rolled off the desk and onto the floor my reaction was "Well, there's no chance I'll find it in that mess, just get another screw from the pack."

I watch the Lifetime Movie Network. The worse the title, the more I want to see it.

I also have multiple Ace of Base songs on my iPhone. They are great for workouts, sorry/not sorry.

I like Ace of Base, too.

I don't, however, work out to them (there's my confession: I don't work out at all, even though I know I need to develop my upper body strength. It's just so boring).
