Dictionary.reference.com says that one of the meanings of the word pleasure is ‘worldly or frivolous enjoyment’. Ooooh, that sounds good. Frivolous enjoyment, guilty pleasures; we all have them and we probably don’t indulge in them enough!
One guilty pleasure of mine is mindless TV. I work in a fairly stressful job and my brain is constantly working all day as there’s very little down time, so when I get home I like a bit of mindless entertainment. America’s Next Top Model and Come Dine With Me are prime examples – TV you don’t have to concentrate on and you can cook dinner or do a little marking whilst watching them. Don’t judge me!
Another of my guilty pleasures is Stumbleupon; who knew there were so many websites dedicated to making your own peanut butter and chocolate confection or endless inspiration for making things. I can spend hours
when I really should be doing something far more productive having a look at random things.
Just another thing that gives me pleasure…numbers, I’m a maths teacher so it helps! I particularly like graphs and big numbers, especially ones with lots of zeros at the end! I was looking at my stats pages and noticed I had reached another milestone – 2000 views!
Thanks everyone for having a look and seeing how I’ve been keeping myself out of mischief! Here’s to the next 1000! I wonder if I’ll get there before I hit the 100 post mark?
Thanks also to anyone who’s left a comment; I love to read your thoughts and I’m trying to reply to each and every one of you!
