Sooo...the mighty gumshoe board feels a bit slow today. *Bob the Builder voice* Can we fix it? Yes we can!

Got a skeleton pounding on your closet? A secret in the attic? A monkey (no, not precious Bobo...and not the raging back hair you try to pass off as a Bonobo backpack either) on your back?

Let it all out, boo.

K, I'll start with a few (true) examples.

When I was 16, I robbed the house belonging to to heir of a pickle dynasty.

I used to steal Volkswagen signs to be more like one of the Beastie Boys.

I have bought more than one kind of deodorant in the same day, on the advice of a friend.

I salivate a little whenever I walk by a hot dog vendor.

I totally car-megeddoned a pigeon last month.

Sometimes, I find Bob Sagat funny.

I'm Canadian and I really don't care about hockey.

Plus, I covet my neighbor's ox every day.

Crunchpatty- I have to admit I have not read the whole thread, but I read your beginning and I have to laugh. Then I just stumbled upon your most recent-you are too funny. Did you really do the door to door thing.

I once worked at a shelter and would take the donated toothpaste, tooth brushes and deodrant home for my own personal use.

I once was arrested for shop lifting my senior year of high school.

I once climbed through my ex-boyfriends window because he was ignoring me at the door.

I once hit a car in a parking lot and drove off.

Crunchpatty-a few weeks ago, I took a whole grocery bag of stuff from my parents house:)

prince - Yup. I did the door canvass thing, for real and for true. How does one go about shoplifting a year of high school? Cuz five is just too many :P

It was a truly craptacular job. You haven't lived until you've been forced, point blank, to come up with an answer to the statement "No hippy, I can't give you money because I'm busy with my wife's monthly enema".

Oh, and today I was at my parents again and I stole a box of farfalle pasta.

I often eat whole plates of food I've ordered in restaurants even though it makes me gag because I don't want to look like I didn't know what I was ordering.

Your window story is jogging some memories (actually now that I think of it the whole relationship filed should be a pretty rich ground for confessions here...come on people! Don't tell me you've never embarrassed yourself in the name of love!)

I once carried a rose in my teeth for 3 hours so I'd appear spontaneous when she first saw me. (No humming of 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn' required here...I know that, now).

Sometimes when I get a call from missus Patty in the middle of the day I write down subject keywords on my sleuthing notebook so I can study them in order to appear like I remember what she was talking about when she asks me "Hey, remember when I told you..."

Circumstances and laundry issues have forced me to make the difficult decision between wearing women's underwear (what the living HELL is the tassle for, really???) and going commando on at least two occasions.

Commando for the win.

- I once was supposed to sleep at a lady friends place after a party which she didn't attend. Once I got to her house she was asleep, so I decided to climb the nine story building and try to access her apartment from the inner yard. I abandonded the idea when I was hanging by my hands from the balcony on the third floor.

- I once participated in a mass eating contest between me and a friend at Pizza Hut's buffet. I managed to eat eleven and a half slices of pizza (which equals almost two, since they cut them up in six slices each).

- One time I decided to see how much water I could drink in one day. I managed to gulp down more than a gallon (four litres) before breakfast which gave me some sort of shock that caused tunnel sight and loss of balance, making me seem drunk (although it only lasted for a couple of minutes). By the end of the day when I stopped drinking I was half through my 12th liter bottle (just above three gallons).

- I prefer bathing nude, and as often as possible visit a nudist beach by the sea. On occassion I walk around nude in my home, unless it's too cold. I still don't consider myself a naturist/nudist in the proper sense.

Sorry. We call the ground floor "first floor" here in Sweden, so make that "balcony on the second floor".

And I lost that pizza eating contest.

Watch that water thing...ask a radio show in CA what happens when you feel drunk from drinking too much water.

Not much happens. And to die from inner drowning you have to drink close to 20 gallons (more than 70 litres). But one can reason that too much of anything is not good for you. Ok, so I like pushing limits. I've been walking a lot as well..

- I walked about fourteen or fifteen miles one time last fall. That experiment ain't over yet however. My goal is to walk to a town that's just a bit more than 60 miles from where I live. In one day. Not sure I'll make it, but I'm gonna try.

lol I'm the same height as my sister, probably half an inch taller now, but she's 18 and I'm 13.

Now that she's going to college she won't have to deal with the problem. For four years, at least. When she comes back I'll tower over her. MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!

- After playing the video game Jet Set Radio (renamed Jet Grind Radio in Europe, a really neat game where you ride inlines with a gang and you paint the walls in the city with grafitti while trying to stay away from the police), I strapped on my inlines and grabbed my spray cans and went out at around 3 am to spraypaint some dull gray surfaces. The game I played at my friends place was a pirated copy of the Japanese original. It had a warning message on the load screen saying something along the lines of "don't ride inlines and paint grafitti". Unfortunately I don't know Japanese.

Thats so cool Kathryn and and my biggiest secret.

I got scared the other night when we went camping in my yard.
I was with my cousin (1 year younger than me) and we got scared by my cat. So we ran in the house. So sometimes I am scared and yes I scare easily.(sometimes)
