- makeup involving more than Bare Minerals and mascara
- angst-ridden drama TV like Grey's Anatomy
- reality TV like the Real Wives of NY or LA or Windsor or whoever is popular
- gossip magazines or websites like Perez Hilton
- chick flicks
However...I will make a confession here today. I have guilty pleasures. There are 5 main chick flicks that I honestly enjoy. Instead of hanging my head in shame, I will share them with you.
1) Just Like Heaven
Wacky hijinks ensue.
2) Sweet Home Alabama
Because she's still married to the also beautiful Josh Lucas. And she's secretly from ALABAMA. She's a hick, y'all!
The hijinks. They ensue.
3) Life as We Know It
Boy: "You're too uptight and you don't like my rumpled hotness!"
Girl: "Don't make booty calls and get out of my Smart Car!"
Both: "Don't ever make us see each other again, Besty McBesterfriends!"
Cue the montage where Boy and Girl see each other all of the time because of Besty McBesterfriends. Baby is introduced and Boy and Girl both love her.
Besty McBesterfriends are lost and it is sad. Then Boy and Girl find out that they left the Baby for both of them to raise.
Here come the hijinks.
4) Moulin Rouge!
This one, I don't feel that guilty. The music is amazing. Ewan McGregor is tasty. Nicole Kidman can SANG. The sets, the costumes, the songs...
Even John Leguizamo can't mess this one up.
These hijinks are dramatic and sweeping.
5) Steel Magnolias
The best part? The quotes:
"It's got gray icing, I can't even begin to think how you make gray icing"
"I'd recognize this penmanship anywhere. You have the handwritin' of a serial killer."
"I don't like her. I don't trust anyone who does their own hair. I don't think it's natural."
"This is in the freezes beautifully section of my cookbook, and I wanted to bring something that freezes beautifully"
So there you have it. I have confessed!
