guilty pleasures

I am curious if you also have things that you secretly enjoy that would shock people who know you.

For example, a while back I admitted to my obsession with chocolate in confection. I can't believe that post was way back in May, so much has happened since then. wow.

Enough woll* gathering...sorry errr.... wool gathering. So- my current guilty pleasure is Yu-Gi-Oh!

It is a tv series based on a dueling card game complete with monsters, attack points, defense points, and the like.

And I am totally digging it! It has the coolest story line: the main character Yugi is inhabited by the spirit of an ancient egyptian Pharaoh Yami, who has the coolest voice by the way, and the series is their journey as they prevent dark forces from taking over the world.

This from wikipedia...Yu-Gi-Oh! tells the tale of Yugi Mutou, a shorter-than-normal high school student who was given an ancient Egyptian artifact known as the Millennium Puzzle in pieces by his grandfather. Upon completing the Puzzle, he is possessed by another personality which is later discovered to be the spirit of a 5000-year-old, in the English anime Pharaoh, who forgot everything from his time. As the story goes on, the two of them, together with Yugi's friends, try to find the secret of the Pharaoh's lost memories and his name by way of the card game Duel Monsters , which is mirrored in the Shadow Games.

The series repeatedly deals with subjects like honor, friendship, courage, determination, faith in yourself, trust, respect.

There are some things that would also stand out to make a hillarious drinking game: repetetive phrases, constant challenges to quit that are turned down, threats of imminent defeat.

So, there it is. My son and daughter want to own the complete first season of Yu-gi-oh! all 49 episodes and I DO TOO!! :-)

Now if only I could find it available for less that $55 + S&H. OUCH!!!!!

The search is on.
If you or anyone you know has it and wants to part with it, I'm willing to go $30 including S&H. MORE YU-GI-OH!!!!!! :-D

*on a completely unrelated side note...Is that REALLY how you spell the hairy covering of a sheep? WOLL???? It doesn't look like a real word to me: wull, woll, wuhll???? I can't believe I'm consulting the dictionary for a four letter word!!!! Ohhhhh thank the american heritage dictionary, it's WOOL!!!!!! WHEW!!!! I was really suffering for a moment there. Now my world is in alignment again.
