The Corner of Quirky & Kinky

Okay, so clear sign I was raised Catholic…I saw the blog topic in our list and was like, wait…indulgences? Are those still a thing?

Then I got a clue and realized, that no…we weren’t talking Papal Indulgences, but normal people ones.


Anyway…guilty pleasures and indulgences. Let me think.

Well, at the risk of turning this blog into a therapy session, pretty much anything I do for myself makes me feel mildly guilty to exceedingly guilty, so most things I do for me are an indulgence. Which, yes, I know…not a healthy attitude, but I’m working on it.

But, here’s a list, though it’s by no means complete:

Naps (If I have time to sleep, I have time to do the myriad other things that need doing.)

Books (I can write these off as market research, so marginally less guilt there.)

Nail Polish. (No, I really don’t need another shade of brown, gray, blue, or purple, but sometimes, I buy them anyway.)

Going Out to Eat (I really enjoy not cooking, but I always feel bad about it because I could make it cheaper at home.)

Watching TV & Movies (I love doing it, but I always feel a bit guilty because if I have time to watch stuff, then I have time to work.)

Essential Oil Perfumes (Hey, here’s one I don’t feel guilty about! Progress! I can’t wear regular perfume because my body chemistry makes traditional perfume smell hideous on me. And traditional perfumes give me migraines. So, essential oils to the rescue. I enjoy both smelling nice and not being migraine-y.)

So…basically, the takeaway here is that I have entirely too much guilt in my life and need to take a lesson from Tom Hiddleston. Be sure to check out Jessica’s post. I’m hoping she’ll have a better handle on her guilt.

EDIT: Looks like Gwen and Paige posted, too.

  1. Naps…Naps are key to survival in my opinion. Never feel guilty about a nap!

      Really, I *shouldn’t* feel guilty about any of this stuff.

    I love naps sooooo much! I don’t get to take them much, but I love them. And books, gotta love books
