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 Secret? Okay, This Is Probably The Only Place I Can 'fess... ||May 11th. at 8:02:39 am EDT|
|Jools (Rhyl, England UK) ||Age: 34 - Email |
My secret? Okay, this is probably the only place I can 'fess without anyone finding out ( deep soul cleansing coming up!) I have a HUGE crush on my boss - big, dark-haired, cute, intelligent, wonderful backside, brilliant sense of humour - and I carry a photo of him round with me. I know there are a lot of you out there thinking "bunny-boiler", but I'm not that bad, honest! Anyway, HE's got a crush on a woman in the office nextdoor ( and has photos of her on his pinboard above his desk), so it's all unrequited stuff, and will ever remain so - but he's just soooo gorgeous, I can't help myself! There, now you know!
| Guilty Secrets....ummm... 1. I Actually Own An N'sync Cd As Well... ||May 11th. at 9:49:10 am EDT|
|Phoenix (Cameron, Missouri US) ||Age: 17 - Email |
1. I actually own an N'Sync CD as well as one by the Backstreet Boys (they were their first ones, and they have sentimental meaning because we listened to them all during a float trip I went on my freshman hear of HS)]
2. I can't stand spiders or snakes...sacred creatures of the goddess they may be, but I can't stand 'em!
3. I actually *like* school..there I said it....I'm graduating in 8 days and I'm terrified! I want to stay in high school, but they won't let me :-(
4. I still desperately miss my kitty. this may not sound so abnormal, since she just died 2 months ago..but I only had her for 6 months before that....I met her when my father's fiance moved in...and we fell absolutley in love...she was my baby..but she passed over because of feline cancer :-(
Wow...feels good to admit those :-)
| Barry Manilow Was My First "rock Concert". No, Really - My Mom Dragged... ||May 11th. at 10:47:53 am EDT|
|Lhiannon (Cedar Park, Texas US) ||Age: 28 - Email |
Barry Manilow was my first "rock concert". No, really - my mom dragged me to see him when I was eleven years old. The really scary part about this? Now, don't tell anyone... but I liked the show. Even screamed and raised my hand, waving it in the air as far and as fervently as I could make it go so he's pick me to run up on stage with him to sing "I Write the Songs"...
While I could blame that on my mother and my youth, I still like the BeeGees. And Wren isn't alone - I still miss Roger, John, and Andy Taylor, and am at least thankful that Nick's still in the band and still wearing make up - growing up just hasn't been kind to poor Simon.
What the heck was "The Reflex" about anyway? Anyone know? :)

Oh boy, here it goes...I have always been a huge Stryper and Rick Springfield fan. *face turns bright red*

|Gwyddion (Binghamton, New York US) ||Age: 24 |
I've considered myself pagan for over a decade now and have taken on various leadership positions in the pagan community. I love a lot of pagan & secular music... that's no secret... but my favorite music is done by a Christian Rock band, Sixpence None the Richer. Can't figure how this ever happened?

Um...I write X-rated fanfic in the Star Wars universe and The Sentinel universe. With some Monty Python thrown in. Eeep.

My guilty little secret... Hmmm... Let's see.
My guilty little secret is that late at night, IM the one who drinks the whole bottle of mountain dew!!! I love it so much! It's sooooo delicious! I eat the last of everyone's food when they're not looking... My metabolism is so high, I can't help but keep eating and eating and eating! I'm like a freakin' hummingbird for crying out loud!!! I'm sure if I flapped my arms fast enough, I'd buzz and fly away! Maybe I have the DNA of a catterpillar, and one day, i'll eat so much, that I wrap myself up in a blanket and come out as a butterfly!!! (That'd be COOL!!!)

|Cybele (Upper Saddle River, New Jersey US) ||Age: 31 - Email |
Duran Duran was cool...you just had no taste. Heck, I'm still a closet '80s nut (listening to Simple Minds on the 1984-1985 Modern Rock CD from Time-Life Books right now). `

|Emily W (Orono, Maine US) ||Age: 17 - Email |
My guilty secret? I LOVE cartoons, especially the really crappy ones, like Gargoyles, Pokemon and Digimon. But it gets worse. I absolutely adore Veggie Tales. For those who don't know, they're children's videos with computer-animated vegetables acting out stories. The "guilty secret" part? Most of the stories are biblical, and all of them are designed to teach Christian morals. I have no problem with this, of course, but it does raise a few eyebrows when I mention it to people who know me to be Pagan. But they're just so darned cute, and funny!

| Okay, I Would Have To Say My Guilty Pleasure Is That I... ||May 11th. at 10:58:39 pm EDT|
|Verbena (Sacramento, California US) ||Age: 39 - Email |
Okay, I would have to say my guilty pleasure is that I watch the TV show Charmed and I really liked the movie Practical Magic. Yes I know these shows have almost nothing to do with the real Craft and although Hollywood has made some attempts to dispell some of the negative witch stereotypes these shows are far from coming close to accomplishing that. But let me explain why despite being a practicing 39 yr old witch I find a guilty pleasure in watching these shows. Basically I just love the way they look. Forget the story lines and inaccurate representations. I love the sets, like the Halliwel sisters' San Francisco Victorian home and the awesome all white Victorian from Practical Magic. I also like the house from the set of Sabrina (the aunts' that is). I don't know why Hollywood decided that witches should live in Victorians but yes I totally bought into that and I'm guilty of stealing ideas from these shows for decorating my home. But that's where the imitation ends. Hollywood still has a long way to go in portraying real witches accurately, but at least they stopped giving us green faces and hooked noses.
| I Slept With A College Instructor In Exchange For A Campus Job... ||May 12th. at 12:05:33 am EDT|
|L (Nowhere Special, Oklahoma US) ||Age: 26 |
I slept with a college instructor in exchange for a campus job and a scholorship. Did a threesome with him and his wife and got an editorship on the yearbook.
In the 7-10 days before my period I fall into a deep dark depression and have resorted to self mutilation for relief. Next month I go to the gyn. to see about getting meds for this.
I have a psychological need for thunder and lightning. When it doesn't storm I get restless and wild-eye'd.
I've cheated on my boyfriend, just once. I have a *very* hard time staying faithful to him. A friend observed that maybe if he was a bit more considerate to me I'd care for him more and not want to cheat on him.
I wish I had a friend I was close enough too to tell these things to.
