Guilty Pleasures?

Things I have been introduced (or reintroduced ) to this semester: 

Coffee. I blame it on Seattle, really. But since Christmas break, I actually can't bring myself to drink crap coffee anymore, meaning the likes of my cafeteria coffee,Tim Hortons, McDonalds, and gas stations all around are now not worth buying ( don't even get me started on industrial-strength Baptist church coffee...). So does that make me a coffee snob? Yep. I guess I'm not ashamed of it.

Lily Allen. I got a few of her albums over break and now I play them rather often. Really, she's rather edgy and profane, what is it I like or find redeeming about her? She's heartless and jaded about relationships, and sings about the bitter reality of sin without calling it that. One of my favorites is a song called reminds me of living in downtown Minneapolis.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves. The combination of British humor and elitist grammar jokes makes this one of my favorite books of all time, hands down. I've been reading it in the evenings after homework before bed as my "fun" book. Definitely one that I'd recommend.
