Question of the Week: 40 - 5/7/2001

What is Your Guilty Little Secret?

Fess Up! What are you hiding? Do you watch 'Survivor'? Do you even watch reruns of the ORIGINAL 'Survivor'? Still have your Barbie dolls-and still change their outfits once in a while? Collect stamps? Think David Cassidy of The Partridge Family is still the babe of the century? Tell everyone that you 'never really watch television', but you're really clocking in some impressive miles with the remote control every week? Hate Celtic music (gasp!) Have a crush on someone? Don't recycle your plastics? This is your chance to come clean and tell all.

(In the interest of fair disclosure: Fritz has the DNA of a sugar ant. He has to have his bowl of ice cream with a chocolate chip cookie chaser every night and he only eats a vegetable about three times a year-and then only if it can be dipped in melted butter. Wren liked Duran Duran before it was cool to like Duran Duran. Of course, it has NEVER been cool to like Duran Duran, so this is a really brave confession on her part. There goes another carefully crafted reputation down the sacred well....)

Heather (Houston, Texas US) Age: 22 - Email

Masterbation is a very touchy subject with most people. I have for a long time told people that I didn't masterbate and haven't even bothered to try it. Acctually I masterbate quite a bit. I like to use it on those nights that I can't fall alseep. It works well for that purpose. So, for those of you who can't seem to fall asleep try sex, or just a good orgasim. It is much cheaper than those perscription meds that help you sleep. :)

I Have Lots Of Guilty Little Secrets... Of Which Is The... May 8th. at 11:12:02 pm EDT

Meena (Anoka, Minnesota US) Age: 16 - Email

^_^I have LOTS of guilty little secrets... of which is the fact that I am addicted to collecting Transformers. Yup, those kick arse little robots that turn into thingamajiggs. I have over 65 now, and some very special, limited edition Convention merchandise...
...I also happen to collect, brace yourself...POKEMON CARDS!!!!! Yes, sad, I know, but I'm addicxted to the show. I'm even wearing a Team Rocket T-shirt right now. And, let me tell you, wearing a Pokemon T-shirt with a pentacle about your neck, and being a teen...people don't take you the lEAST bit seriously.

What else? Well, I only have a crush on two stars. No, not the Backstreet and N*SYNC is old enough to be my father, the other my Grandfather. Bruce Campbell, you know, the man who played Ash in the Evil Dead movies, and Autolycus in Hercules and Xena, and Anthony Hopkins. I know, I know! He's over 65, and I'm 16, but...he's so refined, and yummy to top it...
Anything else? Umm...I'm addicted to Roleplaying on AOL...I have a strange addiction to Wint-O-green lifesavers, and I have crushes on Cartoon Characters and robots...such as James from Pokemon, Saffir from Sailormoon, Dinobot from Beast Wars: TRANSFORMERS, and...oddly enough...Michaelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Lexington from Gargoyles...heh, old childhood crushes.

My Guilty Little Secret Is That I Have Four Wives, All Of... May 8th. at 11:32:49 pm EDT

Perrin (Denver, Colorado US) Age: 24

My Guilty Little Secret is that I have four wives, all of whom have no idea that I'm married to all of them, under 4 different names. It gives me great pleasure that they have no idea of this. Also when I'm not screwing around, I jerk off on my neighbours car, which has a very sensitive car alarmm, at 3:00 AM or earlier. So far my neighbour thinks that it is the geese who fly around at that hour, some day I'll tell him the truth. I also go to web sites like this one, which I do not admit to going to during the day. I also am an avid Ozzie Osbourne fan, and I am delighted that he is coming to Denver for Ozfest. I also have a recently acquired a large human skeleton, which for the moment I am keeping it in the closet. I enjoy torturing people as a side benefit of living right under a flight path.

I just wonder what Guilty Little Secrets' the web site managment has, to post a question like this? It could be very shocking indeed, perhaps they are the priests the catholic church threw out, like that guy in Florida, for going to a strip joint after hearing confessions. Perhaps not, but it does make one wonder.

Beth Langley (Gastonia, North Carolina US) Age: 40 - Email

My guilty secret, hmmmmmmm.........well, I love bluegrass music, the whine of a banjo just SENDS me! I'll watch any and all ER re-runs, and I loved 90210.....I know all the lyrics to everything Jimmy Buffett recorded up til 1990.....and once I ate a whole cheesecake, all by myself, before anyone else got a chance at it......and I did not throw it back up! Also I am addicted to my Gameboy and carry it around with me.......and I have a vast, secret disdain for anyone who hates to read. Books are our friends, lol!

Where To Begin? Well For Starters I Have A Job As An... May 9th. at 1:56:32 am EDT

Nick (South metro, Minnesota US) Age: 20 - Email

Where to begin? Well for starters I have a job as an autitor and I really suck at math. I mean I really really suck at math. I guess that means I'm quallified to work for the IRS.

I love cheezey horror movies. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is the best. I also love the old godzilla movies.

Most people run and hide when Jahova's wittnesses come knockong at the door but I find that to be some of the best entertainment. Some times I just try to out debate them, other times I act like one of those crazzy preachers that you some times see preaching on city street corners, always talking about the end of the world coming tomarrow. Jahovas wittnesses don't come to my house anymore. I think I got black listed.

Wost of all I'm afraid of clowns. I know everybody says that they are afraid of clowns but I realy am. mainly I'm afraid fo mimes. I'm not sure why but I think it has something to do with them not being able to talk. That and sometimes the makeup they have on is creepy.

I Have A Couple Of Guilty Secrets. I Will Go Ahead And... May 9th. at 2:14:41 am EDT

Merlin's Student (Shelby, North Carolina US) Age: 24 - Email

I have a couple of guilty secrets. I will go ahead and say it...I'm weird and I love it! :)

1. I like to collect dolls. I have always loved having dolls around and believing that they have a kind of spirit in them.

2. Ever since a recent break up, I have to sleep with a stufft rabbit in my arms so I can sleep. It conforts me and gives me peace.

3. I have smoked a few cig.s in the past few monthes. I don't smoke and find this being a guilty secret.

4. For me I am always a loving person and always give people the benifit of the doubt. However, latly because of a situation I have found that I hate someone with all my being. I find this a guilty secret because I have never hated someone as much as I hate this person. And, also because the person still thinks that I think of her as a friend. When in fact I do not and can not stand to be around her.

5. I'm a huge Star Trek Fan.

6. I love comic books especially XMEN and Batman.

7. I still watch cartoons by my choice. (I have no kids.)

8. I don't plan to ever have kids.

9. I am obsessive, anxiety (or parnoid), and nosey.

Okay as you can see I'm not normal and I'm not going to post everything that I think is a guilty secret. People think I'm normal and sweet girl...they have no idea. :)

Here Are A Few Dirty Little Secrets, The Ones I'm Willing To... May 9th. at 2:34:19 am EDT

Katherine (Austin, Texas US) Age: 36 - Email

Here are a few dirty little secrets, the ones I'm willing to admit to,
I'm a catalog junkie, (I can read them like miny novels) and probably would be a shopaholic if I could afford it.
I'm a regular Art Bell listener, much to my husband's chagrin.
I'm afraid to cast my first circle, although I know nothing "bad" will happen to me.
I don't belive in God or Satan but the power of both scare the hell (pun intended) out of me. When the Exorcist came out I was nine and I couldn't sleep in my bedroom for six months!!!
I do belive in ghosts, aliens, and chupacabra (I've seen one!)
I still suck my thumb (only my husband knew that one) -and no Grandma, I didn't get buck teeth as you threatened so many times!!!
I'm a terrible housekeeper, I rarely allow guests in my house -this one I'm working on.
I slept with my husband on our first date. (He proposed the next day)
So these I'll share with you and they don't seem quite so 'dirty' now, thanks for the confession time.
Oh, one more; Katherine's not my real name, so much for truth in healing!
-Bright blessings ya'll

Hey! *i* Like Duran Duran! Hmm... What Else? There's Actually One N'sync... May 9th. at 3:02:55 am EDT

Randall Stracener (Leesville, Louisiana US) Age: 19 - Email

Hey! *I* like Duran Duran!

Hmm... what else? There's actually one N'Sync song I like, somewhat. (Even though I stand by my statement that they are destroying all that is good and pure in music, not that there's much left to begin with) Aaaand...

I know i've got some other dirty little secret.

Oh yea. I still listen to Tone Loc, too.
And that's all I can think of offhand.

Ummm... I Like Rush Limbaugh (all The Time), Dr. Laura (some Of... May 9th. at 3:33:27 am EDT

Lily (Kennewick, Washington US) Age: 0 - Email

I like Rush Limbaugh (all the time), Dr. Laura (some of the time), I voted for Bush (and I'd do it again, so nyaahhh), and I voted for Dole. I'm a die-hard Republican, and proud of it!
I hide my alter when Christian friends and family come over, especially my adored Papa, the Baptist deacon!
I have a phobia about water; I swim like a fish, but i won't go near enough to show you!
I have a spiteful streak a mile wide.
I cannot live without coffee and cigarrettes. or, rather, YOU could not live if I don't get them!
I have four children, and I want more. So there.

My Little Secret Is That I *must* Read The National Enquirer Every... May 9th. at 7:57:03 am EDT

John (New Naumkeag) Age: 33 - Email

My little secret is that I *must* read the National Enquirer every week. Oh, and I secretly yearn to have my very own "Blue Dot." I will keep it next to my other favorite "tool" of divination, the "Magic Eight Ball." But, I don't read the Weekly World News (unless it has a bat boy story); one must maintain one's standard's ... ;-)

Well Wren, The Only Thing I Can Say Is That You Are... May 9th. at 11:37:33 am EDT

Rev. Maya Ravensong (Council Bluffs, Iowa US) Age: 29 - Email

Well Wren, the only thing I can say is that you are not alone. I to am an old "Duranie". It is MY personal belief that it has and ALWAYS will be cool to like Duran Duran..John was my favorite. My girldfriend and I even staged a marriage ceremony so that she could marry Nick and I could marry John. Of course we were 13 at the time but we thought it was great! I have not spoken to her for a very very long time now, I wonder if she remembers..

Well......... I'm Deathly Afraid Of Spiders. (that's Actually Not Such A Secret... May 9th. at 11:57:43 am EDT

Rhiannon (Seattle, Washington US) Age: 34


I'm deathly afraid of spiders. (that's actually not such a secret and I'm getting better, sort of)
I talk to myself....all the time. I even playact, pretending to be someone else..ehem.....
I had a huge crush on Brad Pitt (okay, everyone knew and like I'm the only one!) Now I really like Heath Ledger.....hehe (I still love you too, Brad)and used to buy tons of magazines just for that. I finally stopped.
(okay, mostly)
Sometimes I'm still afraid of the dark even though I love it.
I love water, but BIG water sometimes makes me nervous to swim in. My first time in the ocean, I kept thinking some ooky thing was going to come up from the depths to get me. Eventually I got over it and had a grand time. (okay I didn't go too, too far from the shore.)
Other things......I can't tell you here, it's a family site....=P
