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....)

|Mike Bartlett (Calgary, Alberta CA) ||Age: 16 |
1) I'm not a stupid as I pretend to be.
2) I'm not a jerk on purpose.
3) I'm addicted to caffiene, in a big way.
4) Despite being one of the only pagans in my school, and having to be a good example, I eat my meat as rare as I can get it and with visible twitches of pleasure. The rarer the better, even better if you poke it with your fork and blood oozes out...
5) I'm a literary snob.
6) I read at least 3 books a week. (I know, I should do more...)
| What Is This With Dirty Little Secrets??? While I Wouldn't Bare My... ||May 8th. at 5:49:46 pm UTC|

What is this with dirty little secrets??? While I wouldn't bare my soul to my 86 year old conservative grandmother, that is definately a case of better she should not know. When my father's mother died last fall I realized I was half the age she died at, and hadn't done even half of what I wanted to. I was also rather newly divorced. Now I try to not do anything I don't want to (well I do work and clean house, but I make the choice to do so). And I don't really care what anyone else thinks about my choices. I don't shove them in other peoples faces, but I dont hide my movie preferences (did you see the dungeons and dragons movie) or my reading preferences or any other preferences. I also don't feel embarassed by them or feel any need to hide them. If you don't want to know who I really am, don't ask. I don't strangle small animals while laughing wildly, so what is there to feel guilty about????? Or as I tell my teenagers and their friends - life's a bitch and then you have to deal with the witch. Why do they all laugh??
| I Don't Really Have Any Guilty Little Secrets... Everyone Who Meets Me... ||May 8th. at 5:39:02 pm UTC|
|Stormwind (London, Ontario CA) ||Age: 23 |
I don't really have any guilty little secrets...
Everyone who meets me finds out fairly quickly that I love Transformers and other old toys, I listen to 70's and 80's metal, I'm convinced that my car is possessed, I met my Fiance on the Internet...
Probably my interest in magick is about the biggest "secret" I've got, and even that isn't particularly well camouflaged!
Sometimes I get a bit of grief for being open about who/what I am, but I feel that I have nothing to hide from the world, and if someone has a problem with it it's /their/ problem and not /mine./ Trying to pretend to be something I'm not just makes /me/ feel creepy. I'm a lot happier this way.

|Gretchen (Chester County, Pennsylvania US) ||Age: 23 - Email |
Wow! I read all the responses, and it seems like all my fellow Buffy compatriots came out of the woodwork for this one.
My other guilty pleasures:
I consider smoking (tobacco) a dedicated hobby. I love to smoke! I don't want to quit no matter how many people tell me I'll die from it.
Odd ball shoes. Fo-Zebra with 4 inch platforms, Sliver work boots, vinyl snakeskin clogs.
I was a art management major in college specializing in non-profit marketing & fund razing, and now I work for a investment firm. (Translation: I sold out.) Worse, I love my job.
I stared in a slasher film in college, as a goth chick. It was great fun! (I also can say I spent a romantic evening mixing gallons fake blood with my boyfriend.)
So those are my dirty little secrets, and they are dirty. Have you ever mixed food coloring and corn syrup by the gallon?
| Where Do I Start? I Cry Uncontrollably When I Hear "the Living... ||May 8th. at 4:35:04 pm UTC|
|Al Replogle (Konnarock, Virginia US) ||Age: 27 - Email |
Where do I start?
I cry uncontrollably when I hear "The Living Years" or "Cat's in the Cradle." There are several really cheesy country/western songs that make me cry, too, but to list them I'd have to admit listening to c/w.
I _really_ like old MGM musicals. The sappier, the better.
I still have my old Amy (remember Holly Hobbie and friends?) doll and still cuddle up and talk to her when I'm sad and/or lonely.
I sleep on the sofa when my husband is on business. I don't like having that big ol' futon all to myself.
Even though I'm a witch, I really _don't_ like cats.
AND THE REALLY BIG ONE:
Even though they are sexist, homophobic, rednecky, and goddess only knows what else, I listen to The John Boy and Billy Big Show (it's a radio program) every morning. And laugh myself silly much of the time.
There. Now y'all know.
| I'm Trying So Hard To Like Myself Its Hard To Feel Guilty... ||May 8th. at 4:25:12 pm UTC|
|Jane Spacebat (Edinburgh, Scotland UK) ||Age: 20 - Email |
I'm trying so hard to like myself its hard to feel guilty....anyhow here goes... I talk to animals all the time. And plants. For 2 years I was a punk doing ballet lessons....I have an Anti-Nowhere League tattoo (UK 80s punk band)...I'm incredibly greedy and have been known to eat cream on my cereal.....I played Britney Spears in a goth club (not a secret that)...I'm a shoeaholic (think that's because I'm a dancer so I wear shoes down quickly and they start to hurt)...I spent Ł185 on a corset....I love Tom Lehrer, especially the Masochism Tango....I always dance when I'm at the bus stop and last of all...I always think I've done really badly in exams and panic when I've actually got an A.... don't understand why so many folk are guilty about 80's music or liking women....I think a person is about more than their sex. I love my boyfriend and would never want anyone else. I felt jealous when he went off with someone else (we were just friends then...) and I think that's my most guilty secret....oh yeah and I got my mum to import me some Twinkies when she went to America....(eeek)
| Uh, First Off I Got My First Speeding Ticket Last Night. I... ||May 8th. at 1:42:01 pm UTC|
|Amanda (Providence, Rhode Island US) ||Age: 21 - Email |
Uh, first off I got my first speeding ticket last night. I was doing 85 in a 55, but the (veryveryveryvery) nice cop only put 70 on the ticket. The dirty part of the secret is that I was rushing home to see the last episode of an anime called The Big O on cartoon network after going to see David Copperfield with my little brother.
Second, I love hockey (GO DEVILS!). I cheer at fights, and if there's blood on the ice, I'm happy. I love the sport itself, but the nastiness of it all is really a stress reducer, especially when you yell at the TV screen. It's the only time my NJ accent really comes out to play.
Third, I'm training to be a pastry chef, but I don't like most desserts, or even fruit. Nevermind the real food in fancy restaurants. I think it's all gross.
Last, I love listening to novelty music. I have music by Weird Al and Ray Stevens and Kinky Freidmen, and two cd's of stuff that was on the Dr. Demento show. Ok, now that I feel like a total dork...
| All I Can Say Is That I Am 27 And Married And... ||May 8th. at 12:45:52 pm UTC|
|Starkravenmadd (Shelby, North Carolina US) ||Age: 27 - Email |
All I can say is that I am 27 and married and I still sleep with the same teddy bear I have had for about 15 years. My husbands little secret? He takes my bear in the middle of the night. Of course to hear him tell it my bear DEFECTS to his side of the waterbed. I told him that I have had that bear for over 15 years and it never once left my side of his own choice. What did my husband say?? And I quote "Your bear was just waiting for the right man."
I married an 'idiot savant', except without the 'savant' part. :P
And for those that know him its noooo secret!
| My Guilty Little Secrets? Well, I Love Red Cabbage And Peppers On... ||May 8th. at 12:28:59 pm UTC|
|Lauren (Piscataway, New Jersey US) ||Age: 19 - Email |
My guilty little secrets? Well, I love red cabbage and peppers on my hamburgers. I am the proud owner of a vast collection of gay (adults only) comic books.(I have those hidden in my car where the prying eyes of my mother can't find them!) I cried at the end of the movie "Drop Dead Fred." I also cried at the end of "Edward Scissorhands". And "The Iron Giant." I am nineteen and I still sleep with a nightlight on. "The Blair Witch Project" scared the crap out of me, even though I knew it was a work of fiction. And last, but certainly not least (drumroll please)...I think Marilyn Manson is the most attractive man I have ever seen.
| Well, I Have Quite A Few Actually. I Have A Terrible Phobia... ||May 8th. at 2:00:18 am UTC|
|Autumn SilverFerret (Montoursville, Pennsylvania US) ||Age: 22 - Email |
Well, I have quite a few actually. I have a terrible phobia of spiders. I live in the woods so we get some pretty large wolf spiders which when I see, I promptly freak out and kill. YUCKY! I know it's not right but...ooh...eight legs and all those eyes! My week is based around the days my favorite t.v. shows are on. I watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel( I know they don't portray magick the way it should be but they are very entertaining shows;) ), Survivor, Farscape, X-Files, First Wave, Invisible Man...the list goes on and on(I know. I should get a life:) ). Also I'm a sugar-holic and don't eat the way I should and I am addicted to Pepsi(which has an adverse affect on my digestive system). I could go on and on but I think I'll keep a few for myself;)
| Oh What The Hells, Ya Only Live This Life Once, Eh? ||May 8th. at 1:52:19 am UTC|
|Celeste Moonhawk (Rockford, Illinois US) ||Age: 24 |
Oh what the hells, ya only live this life once, eh?
Well, currently, I'm a "closet artist". There's a few reasons. First, people annoy me and ask me too many questions (do you do commissions, what type of work do you do?, etc). Second, I like drawing "furotica" and just plain erotica. Yeah, that usually goes over well.. "Yeah, I draw naked sexy chics, many of them with...." never mind. Let's not go there. Anyway, the looks are bit odd when you ARE a chic admitting this to a mundane person.
Also, being a married woman, I keep it hush-hush about the fact that I love women. Only my husband knows.. Ok, until now :) I've never had an experience with a woman, and probably never will, but I love them anyway. The curves, the hair, etc. etc.Guilty secret #3 : that's why I like to draw them!
What else?... Oh, I have little patience for kids, and I don't like most of them I have met. But I love my nieces.. which why I try to avoid them, because they are kids, and therefore annoy me! I also have no patience for stupid people, which I have learned recently, and doubt that will ever go away, regardless of how hard I try. But that's not really a secret, except to the stupid people I've met.
I better stop here. I just realized nobody really knows me that well, execpt the poor fool who married me. Wow. I feel sorry for him!
Blessings to all! and thanks for letting me ramble!
| I Have A Few Guilty Little Secrets. First I Like To Play... ||May 8th. at 12:15:13 am UTC|
|Erica (Latyon, Utah US) ||Age: 21 |
I have a few guilty little secrets. First I like to play fantasy role playing games on the computer. I am very frightened of spiders and if they happen to get to near me i have my roommate kill them for me. I make fun of the non thinking mormons *sorry to all*. I secretly find women attractive (i am one). I love fantasy but can't stand Tolkien *sorry to all the fans out there*. Those are the big ones right now.
