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....)

| Oh Eek, Well, Here Goes. Hi! My Name Is Heidi, And I... ||May 12th. at 12:46:59 pm UTC|
|heidi (Stump towne, Oregon US) ||Age: 35 |
Oh eek, well, here goes. Hi! My name is Heidi, and I try to be a good little industrial hippie pagan gal(this is a term coined by a pal for all us liberal, pagan, types who wear carharts, steel toed work boots and work in the trades, like to drive pick up trucks and live in cities).
Sure I eat organic, yes, I love tea in the afternoon, movies based on Jane austin novels, art museums and strolling through rose gardens, hey Iam a libran, we Venus ruled artists types love beauty and peace =BUT I do have another side.
Now I was a tomboy back in the 70's, a card carrying GI Joe owning, capgun toting, wooden(this was before plastic everything) sword swinging, bug catching, baby doll despising little wild girl. I played with the boys, ran amuck, and loved war games. I had them little green army men, I liked being loud, It was fun to be a alive and not care about my clothes getting dirty.
All was bliss.
Then puberty hit. I blossomed, my buds budded, and all that ferocious tomboy energy went into team sports, chasing boys and...
HEAVY METAL ROCK AND ROLL!!!!!
This is accompanied by Eddie Van Halens screaming guitar....imagine it if you will...
I joined the KISS Army, I listened to Ozzy, I had BIG hair, spiked dog collars, and a drum kit, yes, it's true I was a head banger back in '77. I owned every album Black Sabbath ever made. My bedroom was decorated in Early American teenage girl, meaning every square inch of wall space has some rock bands picture taped to it.
I am proud to have partied with the Badn Queensryche bad in the day...I was 17 I think...
anyways that was then this is now. Iam now 35, and this heathen woman has a few "secrets". Nothing really earth shattering, but they seem amusing to me.
First of all, (sorry honey!) I have a mad crush on Russel Crowe. OH MY GAWDESS!!!
What a man, I can't even begin to describe how much of a hunk he is, and why I want to nibble him ike fine chocolates, but by FREYA I DO!!!
Gladiator is the finest film ever made and I want to personally thank them for
putting Russell in it, so I could ogle him.
Stength and Honor! And he's an Aries, so how perfect.
And while Iam on the crush subject, there is this thing I have for Arnold, as in the Terminator.. (I will probably go directly to Hellas coldest hall for that crush :)
ok. So, that said, hee hee.. I am still a sword swinging tomboy.
I LOVE the WWF!!! I know, I know, it's sexist and stupid, and fake, but I love CHYNA!!!! I can't help it. I also like boxing, and martial arts in general, I even practice SCA sword play, and such, but the SMACK DOWN, well, it's pure theatre. Bread and circuses.....
I still listen to Heavy Meta, Grunge, loud screachy what ever they call now-a-days...music. I don't have the big hair and the cheesy clothes anymore, but I do have tattoos...and little t-shirts with skulls on them.
I love Metallica, Rob Zombie, Creed, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, all the old classics, and especially Zepplin. Ahh.....Zepplin.
OK well, now I feel better. It isn't easy being a rambunctious heathen gal.
But I forge ahead!
Have a great Beltane month!
Heidi the Smith

|Asmaria (Singapore, Singapore) ||Age: 21 |
My dirty little secrets? Okay, it's time to fess up so here goes....
1) Duran Duran's not so bad... compared to NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK. Yep, I loved those guys and had all their albums! When I was 10 I worshipped the young one, Joey! Sigh... I was young...
2) I figured out my friend's password to her mailbox, used it, and read her mail. (I'm slapping my face...)
3) I found my brother's porn collection once, 'borrowed' one video and watched it. Hey, I was curious! It was absolutely disgusting! I don't know how anyone can get turned on by those!
4) I'm in love with someone I haven't even met. Sad, sad, sad...
Well... that felt good! Thanks for the chance to get some weight off my houlders!
| I Am A Huge Fan Of Dr. Phil Macgraw, Who Appears On... ||May 12th. at 9:11:00 am UTC|
|Filomena Sophia (Duluth, Minnesota US) ||Age: 30 |
i am a HUGE FAN of dr. phil macgraw, who appears on the oprah winfrey show. i catch it every tuesday when possible, just to watch him. i recently bought his book "relationship rescue, " and...SHOCK TO ME!...what he sez in there actually makes sense! the reason it is a guilty pleasure is because he has also recently appeared on the trinity broadcasting network...which is about as fundamentlist as you can get. but i like his no-nonsense approach. i like ANYONE'S no-nonsense approach. maybe coz i spend so much time inside my own head... :P
| I Slept With A College Instructor In Exchange For A Campus Job... ||May 12th. at 12:05:33 am UTC|
|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.
| Okay, I Would Have To Say My Guilty Pleasure Is That I... ||May 11th. at 10:58:39 pm UTC|
|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.

| My Guilty Secret? I Love Cartoons, Especially The Really Crappy Ones, Like... ||May 11th. at 8:06:35 pm UTC|
|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... ||May 11th. at 1:58:14 pm UTC|
|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). `

|Foxx Umber (Robins AFB, Georgia US) ||Age: 16 - Email |
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?
