For a public declaration, loud and proud, of all your guilty pleasures. You know it's trashy, or an indulgence, or unbecoming Schadenfreude, but dammit, you just can't help yourself.

Mine? I like Coldplay. #noshame

Coldplay has a couple of songs that are acceptable. They tend to be the ones that are a little less piano-ballady.

I enjoy Ben Folds and Jimmy Buffet.

Now we're talking.

Even though I recognize that the writing is hit or miss and the performances are B-movie level, I love Law & Order. #noshame

I like the song "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback.

I don't understand how Olive Garden came to epitomize the worst of all sit-down chain restaurants. Aside from one chicken dish that disappointed me, I've had pretty decent food there.

I also like Lady Gaga. And while I don't like much Coldplay, I like The Scientist.

I like going to Olive Garden for lunch. Two soups, two bowls of salad, and two breadsticks for about 1000 calories and $6.95 is almost unbeatable, and it fits in our 45 minute lunch.

Guys, I never imagined I would receive this immediate acceptance and support.

I'm crying now.

My expensive-tastes-having wife loves Olive Garden. I'm not a big fan, but yeah, the soup/salad/breadstick thing is decent, and so is that Three Meat with Merlot tomato sauce.

I'm not an OG guy. It's a price point thing for non lunch OG. I think it is priced similarly to say Macaroni Grill and Carrabas and either of those make more sense for the price to me.

I have a crush on Progressive Flo.

I don't eat at Olive Garden, but I don't really get the hate, either - the very few times I have eaten there, it struck me as purely middle-of-the-road, not really hateworthy.

Yeah, non-lunch, it definitely misses the price point that the food would seem to demand.

I absolutely adore romance animes, and the quicker the couple gets together, the better.

I could do without just about all the mecha and fighting anime. Except for boob ninjas [nsfw probably]. And yes, Katsu's 'ninja transformation' is pretty much "unbuttoning her shirt".

Have you tried the new appetizer wraps there? Wow are those good. I liked the potato one the best.

At Taco Bell or at Red Lobster?

I find Taco Bell a nice change of pace once in a while. I am a fan of those Loco Dorito cheesy taco-shell tacos.

But I really love the tacos at Jack in the Box. In all their deep-fried glory. (In moderation. Like maybe four times a year.)

The cheese biscuits at Red Lobster are pretty good, but I honestly think Red Lobster's garden salad with bleu cheese dressing is the best garden salad with bleu cheese dressing of any that I have tried at any restaurant.

Popeyes is way better, though. (New Orleans pride!). Also, they do 2 pieces of chicken for 99 cents on Tuesdays, so I go and pick up like five meals worth.

I potentially like fried chicken a lot, but hate it if it's too greasy. I tend to prefer the dark meat pieces, because those are less likely to be greasy, and the breast maybe just a little on the dry side.

I like the cold fried chicken pieces that are available in various combinations/assemblies from my local supermarket.

Cold chicken, either fried or rotisserie, is the Market.

Taco Bell! They're 99 cents right now and I had four of them the other day (1 buffalo chicken one, 2 potato ones, 1 nacho one). They're called "Loaded Grillers" and they are pretty tasty.
