Syrupy Sweet

How do you define a guilty pleasure? Is it something so bad that you're ashamed to love it? Or something so darn cheesy that you know people might laugh at you if you admit you own it?

In the category of the latter, I admit to a recent acquisition. I had a memory of my favorite TV movie ever, and decided I had to have it. Sadly it's only on VHS, but through the wonders of eBay, it is mine.

The film is called Mrs. 'Arris Goes to Paris, based on the book by Paul Gallico. It stars Angela Lansbury, Diana Rigg and Omar Sharif. Hello! That's enough goodness to make you watch right there!

It's a sweet story of a poor working class Englishwoman who falls in love with a dress by Christian Dior. She scrimps and saves and overcomes a bunch of obstacles to get her dress. Along the way she makes many friends and solves some problems, too.

It is so sweet that you can get a cavity just by watching it. But I love it! What can I say?

So what are some of your guilty pleasures?
