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....)

|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!

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). `

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!!!)

|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?

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

|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? :)
| 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 :-)

|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!

|MW (Cleveland, Ohio US) ||Age: 16 |
1. Spiders. Saw one about two hours ago (it dropped down from the ceiling), I ran into another room, saw a moth, thought it was another spider, and started screaming. (Didn't wake anyone, thankfully.)
2. I hate to say it.......but.......fish. Like BIG fish. As in fish that are anywhere near the same size as me, or bigger. I went to the zoo once, saw this freaking HUGE fish, and ran out. It gave me nightmares (And for this I shall remain anonymous. It's embarressing. :))
| Oh Dear. I'm Sure I Have Many Lying About The House. I... ||May 11th. at 6:33:52 am EDT|
|Ivy Dockal (Laramie, Wyoming US) ||Age: 208 - Email |
Oh dear. I'm sure I have many lying about the house. I can think of two right now that's weighing heavily on me. One is I'm a terrible procrastinator (and coupled with my bad luck it gets worse!). I had a paper due two weeks ago and was printing it (after I wrote it at the last minute) and my computer crashed. Got an extension and I've been going so nuts with other exams and starting a new job that i never did it...it's due in a few hours...I just spent half an hour (see how bad i am?) calculating the lowest grade I can take on the final exam while not turning in my paper so I can still pass the class.
It doesn't help that the class is completely ridiculous and does nothing for my major. besides...i'm sure my A will balance an F out...
Another one is I think I knew Bono (U2) in a previous life. Every times he comes on VH1 Classic (another secret...I spend hours watching VH1 Classic's continuous music vids form the 60's-80's) I just stare at the screen in rapt attention. I love U2, but I'd never actually seen what the members looked like until a month ago. Must have been a previous life. Only other explanations are he looks exactly like someone I know that I've either forgotten or have blocked, or I actually know him but have forgotten it because it's so improbable.
Oh yeah...I love disco.
And Duran Duran. What? You mean it's not cool to like them? Since when? I challenge that!
