Guilty Pleasures

If you ask me what my favorite T.V. shows are, I'll tell you the truth: Lost and the Office. But what I won't tell you is that I also love the Golden Girls and I won't turn the channel if I find that Full House is on. Yeah, it's true. I didn't say I was proud of it! There's just something so deliciously mind numbing about these shows.

It's the same with me and movies. I don't have a favorite movie, but I could probably come up with something if forced. What I wouldn't tell you though is how much I like Sister Act, Troop Beverly Hills, and For Richer or Poorer (love that last one!). Don't worry, I won't ask you to watch any of those with me. They're my guilty pleasure movies.

Recently I've started a new guilty pleasure and those of you familiar with Facebook will know what I'm talking about. It's called "pieces of flair." Facebook has a lot of applications you can add, and I try to avoid most of them. But as of yesterday, I'm hooked on pieces of flair. I'm hoping by the end of the week it'll be out of my system. I'm sure some of you are hoping that too (although some of you are loving it just as much as I am! Yeah, I'm talking to you: Katherine, Sarah, and Justin! Sorry I dragged you into this...) What it is is a cork board that appears on your Facebook page, and you add (and send) pins to it that express things about you, like these ones that were sent to me:




I'm sure that many of you are looking at this thinking, "Elizabeth, you are much too old for this." And to you I say, "I agree!" But, what can I say. That's why it's called a guilty pleasure I guess. To my friends on Facebook: If I send you a piece of flair, just add the application and enjoy the ride. Don't fight it.

I'm glad that the whole world finally know about Golden Girls, For Richer or Poorer, etc. It was hard being the only one aware of your deep, weird secrets. Now other people can watch Troop Beverly Hills with you! I AM enjoying Pieces of Flair, though. Chick Norris for President 08!!

Sarah loves Flair said...

Ah, who knew that "flair" from Office Space would resurface all these years later and bring such joy to so many people! I particularly love Ross yelling "PIVOT!" on my "Friends" piece of flair! :) Thanks, Elizabeth!

ok, I will be glad to watch Troop Beverly Hills with you AT ANY TIME!!! Troop Beverly Hills what a thrill!!! And, I actually have the exact shirt of your AC Slater piece of flair....how 'bout them apples?

Full House is the BOMB! Yep- I did just use "the bomb" in a sentence. You left out Saved By the Bell. Emmy worthy performances and writing if you ask me.
Slater: "These pills are dangerous!"
Jessie: "Yeah? So's geometry."

Jessie: (To Zack) "I'M SOOOO EXCITED! I'M SO EXCITED! I'm... so... scared."

Heartbreaking...

"Thank you for being a friieeennd. Traveling down the road and back again. Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidante. And if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see, the biggest gift would be from me, and the card attached would say, 'Thank you for being friend!!!'" Sterling once serenaded me with that lovely ditty, and I started laughing and asked if he had just made that up. You probably know the answer to that. Its the theme song to Golden Girls. He LOVED it growing up (and will still watch it if it is on.) Thats why I love him.
