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....)

| My Dirty Little Secret.......... Well, I Have A Playgirl In My Magazine... ||May 9th. at 4:04:22 pm EDT|
|Danielle (New York City, New York US) ||Age: 25 |
MY Dirty little secret..........
Well, I have a Playgirl in my magazine stack, though I hardly ever look at it.
I eat too much fattening, greasy foods.
I appear to be "nice" and "innocent" but deep down, I feel this urge to get a tattoo and ride away on a motorcycle....
I swear too much.
I have cut people off when driving(Even though I don't mean to and feel bad when they honk at me.)
I talk to my animals and kiss all of them...
I LOVE Ioan Gruffud (The hottie from "Horatio Hornblower" on A&E)
I am additited to chocolate.
I HATE doing housework.
I LOVE romance novels, especially the "Harem" genre, which is facinating to me.
I LOVE the computer game "The Sims" and have all of the attachements, including House Party.
I want to get married to a rich man who loves me. (hey, let's face it; I was NOT born to be Middle-Class
Hmmmm.......I think that's it!
| Something That The People Who Know Me Will Never Believe ... I Love... ||May 9th. at 4:54:50 pm EDT|
|ShadowCreature (Western, Massachusetts US) ||Age: 28 |
Something that the people who know me will never believe ... I love children and want to become a teacher. I am an outspoken advocate of the baby muzzle and my best friend has already told me that though I may Wiccan her children, I will never be allowed to babysit. Wouldn't she be surprised :)
I love women, but am too frightened to be in a relationship. I tried it once and it scared the hell out of me. My sister is a lesbian and the thought of another one in the family would drive my father over the edge.
I'm in love with a figment of someone else's imagination.
I'm afraid of beetles ... all kinds of beetles, not just the big ugly ones.
And Steel Magnolias makes me cry
| Well, I Have Several Little Secrets, But None Of Them Are Particularly... ||May 9th. at 5:24:05 pm EDT|
|Nelli (Carmel Valley, California US) ||Age: 24 - Email |
Well, I have several little secrets, but none of them are particularly dirty - just maybe a little odd...
I love science fiction/fantasy, and can frequently be found in Borders, wasting away 6 to 8 hours at a time devouring some silly SF/F novel.
I also love scifi shows, particularly x-files and star trek (all versions, but particularly Voyager - which makes me something of an oddity even among trekkies!).
I get terrible road rage, and am certain that people who cut me off, drive too slow, or otherwise disturb my driving routine are doing it specifically to piss me off.(A favorite bumper sticker of mine reads: anyone who drives slower than me is an idiot, and anyone who drives faster than me is a manic! :) )
I have colossal body image issues, and am easily sucked in to the newest trend - i even once tried herbal breast enhancement pills (they didn't work).
I don't believe in deities or an immortal soul/spirit/self.
I like animals much, much better than people.
There are others, too, but they'll have to wait for another day... thanks for sharing, everyone - maybe we'll all feel a little less isolated once we browse some of these postings!
P.S.... I, too, like Duran Duran :), and I also loathe veggies ;)
| I* Love Duran Duran, But Only The Early-to-mid '80s Duran Duran. This... ||May 9th. at 7:39:04 pm EDT|
|Elizabeth (Iola, Wisconsin US) ||Age: 30 - Email |
*I* LOVE Duran Duran, but only the early-to-mid '80s Duran Duran.
This is no secret to anyone that knows me -- I am a obsessive -- actually it goes way past obsessive -- REM fan. I LOVE Michael Stipe. For the past ten years I have wanted to make a pilgrimige to Athens, GA. I planned my 1999 vacation around their tour and would do it again. I have no problem with taking a day off just to buy their new album (the new one, Reveal, is out on May 15 -- Woo-Hoo!!), but I won't be doing that this time around. In 1996, I bought a new stereo (my old one had died) on the day New Adventures in Hi-Fi came out so I could listen to the CD on something decent.
I sleep with a stuffed hippo my German host father gave me in 1987.
I am terrifed of bees, wasps, hornets and such. I know bees polinate flowers and all that, but I would be perfectly happy if all bees, etc. would just disappear.
I am an AVID fan of the tv show MASH. I record the syndicated shows every night -- I currently have 12 tapes full of MASH shows.
I am a Doc Marten-a-holic. I have thirteen pairs in my closet and have anohter pair on the way.
I hate my job (that, again, is no secret).
Katharine Hepburn is my hero.
I have had a crush on Humphrey Bogart since I was 16 years old
There are many, many more (really!), but I won't go into them.
| Mm! #1) I Avoid Spiders Like The Plague. I Know, They're The... ||May 9th. at 8:23:16 pm EDT|
|9;2;2 (Derby, Kansas US) ||Age: 16 - Email |
#1) I avoid spiders like the plague. I know, they're the creatures of the Goddess... but try telling that to a tiger bent on eating a human. I'm afraid to smash one with a baseball bat, the last time I did such it ran up the bat! ;_;
#2) I am a fledgling road-rager. People who cut me off, speed, pass me, slow down, or don't use their signals will instigate an unstoppable bout of cursing in every language and fashion imaginable. If they piss me off badly enough, I follow them around and honk my horn profusely until they whip out the cell phone and dial #911.
#3) When I'm walking across the street and a car doesn't use their FREAKING turn signal and turns into me, I start a riot.
#4) Air-raid / tornado sirens freak me out.
#5) I yell and scream at my computer if it starts flipping out. I have come close to hurling it all down a stairwell.
#6) I'm generally passive and peaceful (lol, honest!), but if I'm angered enough, I can become extremely coldhearted, calculating, and spiteful.
#7) I hate it when I'm mad and start crying during an argument.
#8) I like to sleep a lot.
#9) Fluffy bunnies get on my nerves.
#10) Enya MIDI's blaring on the background of a regurgitated beginner-Wicca page are worse.
#11) Bigots REALLY tick me off, especially racists. I (or my friends) restrain myself from knocking the piss out of them.
#12) I never talk about my mother, except around people I absolutely trust. If someone brings up the subject, I block them off. It's a painful event concerning her and my entire family. Please don't ask.
#13) 9;2;2 is my name. My alternative name is PsYcHoTiC. ;)

|Nikki McGoff (Boston, Massachusetts US) ||Age: 13 |
I take my parents lighters to light my candles and incense, but only ones they aren't using. I also have to hide the smell of incense and the candle flame all the time if they're home.

|Aurora (Douglas, Massachusetts US) ||Age: 18 |
1). There is nothing wrong with liking Duran Duran. Quality music is hard to come by.
2). Spiders scare me, and I have nightmares about them. Also along the sleep line, I sleep with a teddybear that I recieved when I was 10.
3). Road Rage is a normal occurance. If I'm not speeding, check my pulse.
4). I'm a band geek, and proud of it!
5). I too love Voyager and any other Trek Kind of thing. In fact, I'm watching it now! augh, Nelix is leaving!
6). I cry sooo easily, even at dumb tv comericals!
| Im Very Vengeful But Appear To Be Carefree, People Think Im Sweet... ||May 10th. at 12:55:34 am EDT|
|Star (Holtwood, Pennsylvania US) ||Age: 23 - Email |
im very vengeful but appear to be carefree, people think im sweet and really im very intolerable and bitchy, i dont like people that much, but go out of my way to make them happy.. go figgure.. then i hate my self for doing it.. im in love with my vibrator.. to bad men arnt equiped that way <> im short tempered and swear alot when i get mad.. of course anyone who knows me, sees my love of the term GOD DAMNIT!!! or SON OF A BITCH!! it just feels good to type it. feels even better to scream it at someone who gets on my nerves. I dont really care for porno movies unless it has a plot or a really good woman on woman scene. I like woman but they scare me at the same time. my husband drives me stark raving mad and i still love him and i hate him for that. fell inlove on line once and promised my self id never do it again.... what the hell am i doing now!!!! oh and im taking a course in medical transcription and i hate doctors with the passion.. so what do i do.. i choose to work for them... i make no sence. being alone scares me and the one i hide the most.. when i turned 11 my mother got me a mug with a teddy in it.. the mug was about scorpios.. said a lot of stuff blah blah blah cutting up on scorpios ( i am one by the way and proud) and the very final thing on the list was... #11 scorpios are most likely to be murdered. WHAT A NICE GIFT needless to say my mom picked it up with out ever reading it ( i wanted to keep it but she returned it to the store) and that #11 still has me paranoid to this day.. i dont even like the number 11 avoid it at all costs.. even hubby dont know this one. ok thats enough
| I Finally Decided To Post After Reading About 40 Other People's Posts... ||May 10th. at 8:27:10 am EDT|
|goldŰfloor (Eastern, Kentucky US) ||Age: 32 - Email |
I finally decided to post after reading about 40 other people's posts......So have you guessed that I'm a coward? LOL Anyhoo I nodded others' comments on spiders, deep water, Steel Magnolias **SOB**, lusting after those whom I should not **SLATHER**, of course I never mention it to the lustee..... did I mention I'm a coward? I will eat all of the ice cream unless someone fights me for it, expect bloodshed. I love eggs and eat them everyday.
I used to have a crush on Mickey Dolens. Ok fine! I still have a crush on him and if I weren't a coward I'd get a tattoo of a heart with his name on it on my nether regions. I'm addicted to NeoPets after one month. I have a real problem showing my feelings towards others unless it's negative or just plain evil heh heh. Procrastination really is my middle name.
There are approximately 124, 423.75 unfinished projects lying around my house and other places too. I'm no good at laughing at jokes if I don't get it just to be polite. I have weird sense of humor that people often take as lying! I've never understood that but its true. There are people who think I am to be avoided at any cost Woo Hoo!! less hassle for me. But I do feel sad sometimes cuz it's my own fault I have few friends, but my humor spares no one, its unstoppable. Makes my apologies much less sincere unfortunately. But I find that funny too so I guess there's just no cure.
I have a habit of forming two feelings or opinions (usually conflicting) about things. Which seems normal to me but other people find it disconcerting (and probably wonder if I'm lying again LMAO!). But hey I really can understand why people wear fur even though I despise the fact that they do. Oh how I hate Alvin and the Chipmunks. There I finally said it. :0P Don't tell anyone ok?
If someone asks me point blank if I'm christian I say yes. Hey I figure it's survival of the fittest. Besides my definition of a christian is much different than the person who asks me. However if they start that 'washed in the blood' bit I stop them and say that I don't accept that part because it is too close to cannabilism. Then they run away screaming and again I have lost a friend.....*sigh*
| Okay, Here Goes.........i Was In Love With The Bay City Roller... ||May 10th. at 10:54:57 am EDT|
|Soloswan (Malvern, Arkansas US) ||Age: 37 - Email |
Okay, Here goes.........I was in love with the Bay City Roller. I had all their albums, even the import albums!! I had my walls plastered with the picutres for 16 magazine.
| Secrets? Oh, I've Got Lots Of Those. It Must Be An Aquarian... ||May 10th. at 1:31:11 pm EDT|
|LoneCat (Somewhere, Texas US) ||Age: 20 - Email |
Secrets? Oh, I've got lots of those. It must be an Aquarian thing, but I really just don't understand people, and they don't understand me either. I really think someone up there made some sort of mistake and I wasn't meant to be a human being. I am much more comfortable with animals than I am with people.
I talk to animals and plants like they were people, and if I don't have any around I talk to myself. I talk to myself whenever I'm alone, which is a lot of the time.
It's no secret that I like the Beatles, but few know the extent of it. I used to practically worship them as gods, and now I still do a special ritual to honor John Lennon every Dec. 8, who is my idol. I like music from the 60s and 70s much more than anything new, although a good song comes along every now and then. I could probably win at Rock and Roll Jeopardy, as long as they don't ask too many questions about new stuff or hip-hop.
My mom never weaned me off baby bottles, so I still drank a bottle of warm milk every night before I went to sleep until I was 8, when I kicked the habit myself.
I don't smoke or do any other drugs except 4-Way Fast-Acting Nasal Spray. I've tried to give it up many times, but whenever I get a cold I go right back to it. I wonder what the long-term effects of it are.
I'm totally into organic gardening. I don't care about flowers, only herbs, fruits, and vegetables. If I ever get a second career after I become a wildlife biologist (which I'm studying to do), I'd be an organic farmer.
I can't take horror movies. Even cheesy ones keep me up at night, and the X-files are way too scary for me too. I avoid scary movies and shows as much as i can.
The Lion King made me cry. A lot. That was a great movie.
On a darker note, I was planning on committing suicide my senior year during Christmas break, but I chickened out, not because I wanted to live, but because I was afraid of death. My high school counselor thinks I suffer from chronic depression, and referred me to a shrink, but I have never called. I keep putting it off and making up excuses not to call.
In high school my best friend was a 30-something year old guy I met on a Beatles newsgroup on the internet. It wasn't sexual in any way, more like a brother-sister relationship, but I don't tell anybody because I know what they would think about it.
I lost my virginity when I was 19 to my first boyfriend (after I had been dating him for 7 months). I later got pregnant by him and had to have an abortion. Somehow, I'm still with him after a year and a half. I'm still uptight about sex, and never masturbate. Nobody believes me if I tell them that, but I just don't like it.
Oh yeah, one more secret. I'm a pagan. A few people know I'm interested in it, but nobody knows I actually practice at night in the privacy of my room. Shh, don't tell anybody.
