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.

*I'm a girl. :3
*In the fifth grade, I made up a book for a book report and got an A (It was a great idea for a book, too. If I was into historical fiction, I'd write it.)
*I know every word in the movie You've Got Mail
*My DVD collection is nothing but animated kid movies from the '90s. I know all the songs to the musical ones. Even the ones you've forgotten about.
*I'm the reason my dog's leg didn't heal properly after surgery. :(
*My nighttime face cream left bleach spots on my step mom's best sheets.
*I didn't feel sorry about the latter.

Forgive me, crunchy, for I have sinned! Heh...confessional sleuthy style!

* I've never had a boyfriend
* I love Star Trek (not that Next Generation tripe, but the original stuff), Star Wars, and X-men
* I think I now realize why I've never had a boyfriend
*I've always wanted to be a famous actress and/or singer
* My secret desire is to become a professional ballroom dancer
* I plan on marrying Daniel Radcliffe (although he won't return my phone calls...jk)
*In the second grade, I passed out in the beginning of our class's thanksgiving play, and now the teachers use the footage to remind kids to warn them if they're feeling sick before it starts
* I want to become a writer
*I want to sue JK Rowling for what happened in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (she better watch out)

And I'm going to shut up before someone I might know finds me here.

OK this may not be shocking but...
I went to college for preLaw (dropped out to have babies) that's not the secret. I have a slightly above genius IQ but...

I cannot tell time on a clock face to save my life and
I'm obsessed with NASCAR.
*wails* I'm so sorry...Can you ever forgive me?!?!

I think this is my 3rd or fourth time...... ack....

Don't worry, Chelsey1974, I can't tell time on an old-fasioned clock either.

I am deathly afriad of death. I'm not kidding.

I think it is enormously funny in The Goonies when the skeleton's head rolls off.

I am spending most of the money I have on ebay for old movie posters (Researching movies is my main hobby) to decorate the room in my new house instead of buying a nice year-long subscription to sleuth. (this is truly a sin)

I drink lemon water.

I just bought a silent movie from 1917.

I have watched 4 R Rated movies, and one of them is my favorite movie of all time. (I am 13)

The oldest movie that is among my favorites is 7 years older than I am.

I lived in Kentucky for 10 years and I still have my mid-western accent.

Sometimes I get on the computer when I'm not supposed to.

I am supposed to be asleep because this is supposed to be a school night. (but I am moving so I don't have to go for a while)

The best conversations I carry are with my grandparents due to my taste in old movies.

My piano books were packed by the movers when I was supposed to salvage them for my piano lesson tomorrow. My LAST piano lesson.

Only today have I seen Hairspray for the first time.

I stayed up all night to read the new Harry Potter book. Without realizing I had a dentist appoinment in the morning.

I hate coke, and have never drunk a bottle/can of it in my life.

My teacher's comment on my last entry in my required school journal was "I wanted an entry, not an essay."

One more thing- I bought 18 Wax Packs for the movie Goonies and apart from getting almost all of the trading cards I was stuck with 18 pieces of gum that I didn't want or need. So I dared my sister's boyfriend to chew a piece of it. (it was 22 years old)

Smart as he was, he didn't accept the dare.

One more thing- (sorry, guess I'm in the confessing mood)

I'm a vegetarian and nobody else in my family is and every time they eat or cook meat I never let it go without lecturing them.

I have to say I think Kathryn's confessions are among the best in the land. That teacher's an idiot. Trust me, after four years of reading junk from university students so idiotic it's barely coherent, she doesn't know how good she's got it over there. But then again, Drambuie for lunch tends to make one impatient.

You must have had at least one know that you hated it.

I stole a towel from the YMCA the other day, washed it and cut it in half. Now I have two really jagged-edged white towels. I'm gonna steal more.

The smallest thing I have ever stolen was a rosemary leaf. The biggest was a sail from a windsurfer.

Nine times out of ten, the song in my head is the theme music from WKRP in Cincinatti.

I've never eaten a goose.

The older I get, the more closely I watch commercials for eyelifts.

I'm a food snob, but I really really like Kraft cheese singles.

I 'enhanced' the tomato soup at this restaurant I worked with a couple of mouse droppings.

Today I watched an old episode of The Cosby Show, and spent a significant amount of time wondering where Raven Simone went wrong.

I developed chest hair at the age of 14. I haven't worn a tank top in public since.

I served my friends meat that was so raw inside it was cold to the touch (I actually like it that way), and somehow managed to pull off the 'that's how they do it in france' crap with a straight face.

I routinely make character assessments of virtual strangers based solely on appearance (not good looks, but, if you're carrying a yoga mat, I know you're 'one of those').

I am late for everything.

I only learned how to pump gas at the age of 20.

I've never been happy with any of my Hallowe'en costumes.

I just ran into one of my mom's friends and told her I had a book coming out under the pseudonym 'Aloicious Vicious'.

lol I had one sip of coke and never touched the stuff again, so I really never have drunk a can or bottle.

I LOVE this thread!
I'm acutally female and the female team member to this agent shares my first name. Steve is my husband's name, which should tell you I have no imagination.
I also have a 3rd detective.

I refuse to turn the windshield wipers all the way up on my car because I think it looks very silly.
My favorite favorite movie is The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I love reality TV.
I live in WV, but I'm not a redneck, I'm actually a finance professional.
On the professional note, I work from home and have been known to ditch work and play sleuth all day.
I have recently acquired piercings in an area that would not be expected on a professional anything.
I own 2 snakes which I'm terribly afraid of.
I actually like the taste of Miller Light and hate wine. Well, except for the kind I make myself.
