These Are My Confessions...

Here goes nothing... a list of all (some) of my weird, embarrassing, illegal and shameful activities. I am sure there are more where these came from, but let's just start here.

Please don't judge.

  • I steal magazines from my doctor's office.
  • I let the gas in my car get dangerously low before I fuel up. We're talking single digits.
  • I have had the same three Netflix movies for four months. What a waste of $68!
  • I color my hair and only wash it every three days.
  • I screen my phone calls.
  • I make our bed within minutes of getting up in the morning.
  • I miss working.
  • I want to rip a person's arm off if they take food from my plate.
  • I listen to audio books when I walk.
  • I cheat at Scrabble, but rarely win.
  • I let Lucas watch too much TV.
  • I watch too much TV.
  • I record Oprah every day and I'll cry when this season is over.
  • I have never read one single Harry Potter book, nor have I seen any of the movies.
  • I don't like to eat leftovers.
  • I think there should be a ban on onions. I love the way they taste, but can't stand the way they make my house smell.
  • I can't get one hand wet without getting the other one wet too.
  • I can rarely listen to a song without singing along.
  • I can't stand people that can't show up on time.
  • I stole some erasers and gum from a convenience store when I was in the fifth grade and gold charms with my BFF Sophie when we were in junior high.
  • I use subtitles when I watch movies at home.
  • I drive over the speed limit and have been know to tail gate.
  • I'd rather send an e-mail than pick up the phone.
  • I once "borrowed" a scarf from a friend that I never returned.
  • I don't like fish.
  • I still have thank you cards to send for gifts we received when Lucas was born.
  • I recently bought a Justin Beiber song on iTunes, of course, if you got your hands on my iPod, you'd think I was schizophrenic.
  • I floss my teeth (when I floss) before I brush them.
So, there you have it. Well, some of it. What dirty little secrets are your hiding?

This post is for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop - Prompt #2: What are your confessions? (inspired by Usher)

haha.. I have to say that there are plenty of these where I can relate, especially the washing the hair one. I do good to wash mine twice a week. :D

Lots of Smiles!

Many of those are also my dirty little secret. I mean, TV and I have a secret love affair. Well, secret to anyone who has never been in my house.

What you feel about onions? I feel about bacon. I *love* bacon. I could live on bacon. But I HATE the way my house smells after I cook bacon. And it lingers. For days. Even with windows open, grease disposed of, etc.

Sadly, you would not like me. I am habitually 5 to 10 minutes off. Sometimes early, usually late. And usually not more than 10 minutes. Has been a lifelong problem.

I also have thank you cards from my wedding (in April) that never went out. Major guiltage here. *sigh*

I love your list! :)

I like flossing first, too, and have not seen nor read a second of Harry Potter.

There have been a lot of tweets today about non-hair washing. You definitely aren't alone on that.

You've had 3 netflix movies for 4 months?! Damn! Just curious, what movies are they? Wow, I'm a speed demon with my 1 netflix movie, I get it back in the mail the next day or so usually!
And which Justin Bieber song did u cave in and buy? :)

I'm right there with you with some of these as well. The Thank You Cards...I'm so bad. I also intently take great notes when opening up the kids gifts. That is from her, and this from him...blah blah...and yet they just sit there. Then the next big gift-giving-event rolls around with the same people, who watch me write down my "this and that's" and I'm sure they are thinking....right, as if she's going to send us a Thank You.

Oh some lose some, or in my case, just plain dont do some.

And the less frequent hair washing is a good least this is what I tell myself.

You have become my hero! I'm guilty of 50% at least of these things.

And why brush first and then loosen up more yuck?

I am a really bad girl. I regularly run the world's most pointless red left turn light on Surveyor Avenue in Brea. I drink milk out straight out of the carton. I party smoke--cigarettes and pot. I watch Sixteen and Pregnant on MTV. I only check my mail about three days a week. I also have can't-return-a-movie-to-Netflix syndrome which I believe is a natural progression from my lifelong can't-return-a-library-book condition. Plus a few other unmentionables.

OMG!!! I nearly fell off my chair laughing because of this post!!!!!! I wash my hair every day of the week (am I crazy? ) and don't colour it but have highlights instead, I have never bought a Justin Beiber song (I don't even know if I know one???), I don't have Netflix (I live on an island!!!), I don't watch too much T.V (nothing to watch!), I do eat fish sometimes, but they mustn't taste too fishy (?), I don't think I have kept something that was lent to me, I don't listen to audio books, but I'm a 100% with you for the rest. I also have loads of other vices and the list would be way too long to name them all!

Make sure my daughters never read this post ; ))))))

I'm really glad I'm not the only one with a toddler that still has some thank you notes left to mail! Thanks for making me feel less alone in that!
