I think we can all agree that we like them alive...
Are we sure about this one? There are some freaks out there.
Yeah, I was going to say... I thought ToM would have taught you this, Alea.

Steff is the only one I can think of who has a thing for the dead, though it seems to be more about having sex near the dead rather than with the dead.

Otherwise, they all seem to prefer the live ones.


Not to say there aren't necrophiliacs out in the world at large. *shudder* I can see a guy getting away with that but how would that work for a female? DON'T answer that, people.

Moving on!

While I have read many, MANY Calvin and Hobbes, I don't find them nearly as amusing as my husband does. He rereads his collection of books at least every couple years. I prefer the humor of Far Side.

I reread Calvin and Hobbes much more often then every few years. They are my eternal sitting on the toilet reading material.

I had Pheeny (my bearded dragon) outside with me while I was gardening today. I had looked away for a little too long and when I looked up to check on her, she was gone. I started panicking and looking all over my yard and my neighbor's yard. It felt like 10 minutes but it was probably only about 60 seconds until I found her a few feet from where she started from. I picked her up and hugged her and started crying. I don't know what I would do if I lost her and it was my fault. Needless to say, I won't be taking her outside anymore unless I am doing nothing but watching her.

Over the last few days I've become addicted to Magical Trevor and The Badger Song. I don't even really know why and I'm ashamed of that fact.

Twenty minutes ago I performed a sex act on a random stranger on a subway train. I feel so ashamed for betraying my boyfriend like this! But what’s worse is that I know each day I will be hoping to see my anonymous lover again...

For some reason I'm terrified that everyone will assume that I wrote the confession two posts above this one, about the stranger on the subway. I didn't.

I never would.

But I assume everyone will think it was me anyway. Ugh.

When I saw that you had posted in here, Kel, I thought you might be writing something to that effect. I didn't think it was you but I can see why you would worry that people (who don't know you) might.

Kel, the only reason that I even thought of you when I was thinking about who that could be is because of the subway (which makes me think of New York) and I know you have a boyfriend. But I definitely didn't think "OMG random sex with a stranger, that's got to be Kelly!!" To be honest, no one really comes to mind. I guess I hold the girls of pweb in pretty high regards.

We needn't assume it was one of Pweb's female denizens. Possibilities abound.... Regardless, though experimentation can be healthy, I hope relative safety was upheld.

I am increasingly uncomfortable with the amount of discussion abounding a post made with the Confessions login. The point of the login is to have anonymity, is it not, and to hopefully not be replied to with discussions and responses, unless specifically asked for.

I feel like I'm developing an unhealthy relationship with food. Whenever I leave the house I think about where I am going and what tasty food I can get in that general area. I've always been a lazy eater but food from anywhere that is not home is becoming more hard to resist. And yet, I'm still not eating that much because I put off eating for longer than I should. I'm also worrying more and more about gaining weight because the neuro just doubled the new headache med that causes weight gain. I know what triggered this whole thing a few years ago but I'm just not sure that I'll know if/when it gets out of control.

Perceived, but yes.
, and to hopefully not be replied to with discussions and responses, unless specifically asked for.
I don't think that was ever implied or stated, like it was in Bob (though I could be wrong and will concede to being wrong if someone can point it out to me).

I think Confessions was only ever created for and used by people too embarrassed to lay claim to the statements/thoughts being posted -or not wanting students to be able to identify them- and as no one but mods can tell who says what, I think their posts are just as much fair game as any non-Bob post is given this is a discussion board and the replies do not take away from that anonymity the sought out. If they don't want replies, I think the burden is on them to ask for no replies.

Just my two cents and all that not to say I am okay with your unease. I just don't understand where it is coming from in this case.

[Also, perhaps I should stop posting again while highly stressed out as it makes me bitchier and more heartless. ;)]

Alea,

I was tending to agree with Mich, but you make a valid point. Confessions posts should be fair game. Unless of course, they are posted in Bob or ask for no replies.

It's okay! That's the problem with unwritten rules, and why I don't reply to some threads about 50% of the time, and one of the reasons I didn't post here very often for the first, what, three years I was a member.

Wow, after reading that, it MIGHT mean that you're bitchy and heartless. That is not my intent, but you should know that.

*chuckle* No offense taken. I'd just hate for you to think any attitude that may be permeating from that post is intentional on my part. Not that my current state would be any excuse for me posting inappropriately...just trying to give warning that were I being those things, I'd be apologizing as soon as my head levels out.

I'm crazy. I think I've officially lost it. I'm writing a (secret) story. It's way too autobiographical for my taste and it's everything I haven't allowed myself to think about in the past few months in the form of a story. And I think I'm addicted to it. I can't stop writing it, thinking about it. It's taking over my brain.

I may not feel it yet, but I'll pay for this. Oh boy, there'll be hell to pay.

I'm calling shenanigans on the subway sex-act post. I think a newbie (or an oldie, I guess) is just playing us.

ETA: I suppose it's possible that it's real, but I'm not really buying it. It feels too faked to be real.

What, in an fmylife style? Possible.

It is interesting how one could probably divine who posted either responses by crossing off the responders from a long list.
