    I confess to being a gossip whore and I wish I knew who E was and what the gossip was, just because.

    Also, I confess to reveling in a little schadenfreude right now. I realize this is bad, yet I do it anyway.

    I confess calling Ash "The Big E" has helped eliminate some of the name confusion.. and FYI Acorn - its elmobo-n-lexi or something like that... I don't remember exactly what she changed her name to.

    I confess I too like gossip.. but I will not state the reason. lol

    I confess that I have no idea why I started calling her big E...I just did.

    (Yeah, it's elmobo-n-lexi)

    But I also confess that if one more person tells me that God will take care of me and always delivers, I will tell them where to shove it. Does advice and comfort always have to be "trust in God"? Actual advice would be great. Thanks Im done now :batman:

    YAY!!! I was actually thinking that while reading the responses to one of your posts. I you Angela

    If God took care of all of us all the time, delivered on all our prayers, and never gave us more than we can handle, why in the world did my sweet, wonderful, 100% Catholic grandmother watch Soviet soldiers shoot her dad, have her mom die in a German work camp, and herself be imprisoned by Nazis for years??? All three of those sayings piss me off beyond belief as do the people who think that those constitute "advice"

    I confess it irritates me when people think googling about something counts as actual research and knowledge about a subject.

    I confess that I have been mostly lurking since I got back and I don't even know why.

    I confess that I thought it was pretty interesting and kind of funny when I read today a thread where some people said/implied that they thought atheists really believe in god deep down, because I can't get past the feeling that I have that all religious people really know there _isn't_ a god deep down. It made me laugh at myself, and then the whole world, cause humans are really quite silly when you get right down to it.

    I confess that I think that the above statement will probably be hugely and deeply offensive to someone even though that is even more silly.

    So everyone, how's it going? Did I miss anything while I was away?
    Ash left as Elmobo and returned as Elmobo_and_Lexi.I don't know why, but I'm guessing her baby girl told he she needed to be better represented on APA.
    Two Christian APAers now post in secular confessions, which is cool. I like hearing other people's voices and this thread seems pretty open.
    I changed my name form Melanie_777 to AbbeysMom.
    The confessions thread made to over 1000 posts.

    That's all I can think of.

    Yea. Its not advice. I mean, being religious, I do pray but I do not rely on prayer 100% for everything to happen. If that were the case, no Christians would have jobs because god would deliver right? To a certain point you have to help yourself.

    I confess that I got told "not to get my panties in a wod" when I replied to my ignorant cousin who sent me the gay-bashing e-mail. I e-mailed her back and told her that her thong must be so high up her @ss that her brain must be rotting. LOL. This will start some major drama between her mother and mine for sure. Her mom already resents my mom because me and my sister have pretty good lives whereas her 2 kids are leading pretty rough lives.

And then she said she was going to have one of my dad's business partners come to dinner too. I only like making experimental dishes on family members. Now I really hope it turns out well!
    So, to update you on what turned out to be a dinner party, I was leaving work late and got a text from my dad's dinner partner saying he hoped it was okay if he brought a lady friend to dinner also. This all started out as just a standard have-mom-stay-after-babysitting and try out a new dish sort of thing. This was NOT supposed to be an event. I scrambled and called dh to pick up some extra food on the way home from work because I didn't have time.

    But... it turned out great. They brought wine and bread and cheese. The lady friend was verrrrry interesting, either that or a compulsive liar, which makes her interesting either way. She used to work for the UN, and for our govt and would not give more details, and lived in Taiwan and was in Bosnia during the was, working ostensibly for orphanages and refugees but also carrying firearms and setting up people in safe houses. She told some pretty terrifying stories.

    Anyway, the food turned out okay. Nothing I would have cooked for a dinner party, but it wasn't bad. I got complimented on it. But it was nice to meet someone new and interesting, and see dh perk up and try to figure out exactly what branch of govt work she was in while she tried to sidestep his questions and still hint around.

    Wow, that does sound like an interesting dinner. Much better to have okay food when you have a really interesting guest. Next time you can have good food and a boring guest.

    I confess I'm relieved your dinner turned out well. I think if it had been me i would have switched gears and made an old standby dinner that I knew was well liked. I only experiment with new food when it's just Tredhed and I - cause we can order pizza if it's a complete disaster.

    Well, I confess that following the first round of Clomid, my body has become flowmaster...in a REALLY big way.

    Me: My body hates me.
    DH: No it doesn't dear, this is your body's way of telling you it loves you.
    Me: Then it's a really crappy lover.

    With or without clomid, when you are TTC your body does in fact hate you. Its a proven fact.

    What a great thread!! I haven't been in this room in ages, but I haven't really been on the forums in ages so that's my excuse. I obviously have not read through all 42 pages though. I'll write some confessions later!

    I confess - I work at a university where few people seem to have the ability to READ INSTRUCTIONS.

    My BOSS is included in that.

    I saw it! I feel that way a lot, too.

    Also, does your avatar pic have anything to do with the Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel books? It reminds me of Phedre's tattoo.

    Lydia, that sounded like a terrible situation to be put in, but congrats on pulling it off so well! I LOVE compulsive liars at dinner parties, they make it so interesting!

    Angela - I haven't seen the post you're feeling invisible about yet, but

    I confess we just officially got another cat. If we stay at this rate of animal acquisition, I will be a crazy cat lady.

    I confess that I saw Janeen's post about being submissive and I realized that I am very comfortable with my submissiveness in our relationship, but very ashamed of it when I tell other people.
