The Friday Confessional, January 30th 2009


Confession Number 4:  I don't wear glasses.  I don't need them, as I actually have fantastic vision.  However I think that glasses on women (especially at the end of the day, while reading with a hearty glass of wine) are incredibly sexy.  

Confession Number 108:  I let my cat, Thai (he's the stout n' sexy brown fellow, not the disgruntled orange one - that's Sing) share my $90-total-splurge, Queen Size Swedish Tempurpedic Pillow with me at night.   Weighing in at a cool 17ish pounds and  stretching out a full 35 inches tip-to-tail, he snuggles into the kitty nook and purrs me to sleep.  This makes BC absolutely crazy.

Oh this game is getting fun!
Fess up my friends!

- I have a secret love for girls in glasses. Bring on that sexy librarian!

- I get songs stuck in my head. Completely stuck. Not going away. There until another equally annoying song comes along. It has to be obnoxious though otherwise the original song remains strong.

i love your blog, but i never leave comments, so hello! (it's odd because in real life i'm not so shy.)

Confession Number 387: i only put organic honey or organic maple syrup in my coffee. unless i have no other choice, but then it never tastes quite right.
Confession Number 6: i always have polish on my toes, during all seasons and all weather. even if the "little piggies" are not seen by anyone but me, or my husband!

Hello Annika! I'm glad you fessed up! (and I've totally blog stalked people for MONTHS before finally leaving a comment too and I would probably make random people more comfortable if I was more shy in public).

Maple Syrup, huh? Organic of course, I'll have to give it a shot...

- I am completely addicted to Scrubs. I watch the same episodes over and over. It's the only show I can do that with.

- I have at least 15 bottles of lotion between home, work and purse.

- I've never had a martini.

UmberDove said...

WHAT? M - you need to get yourself up here and I will pour (hehe, literally) all my years of bartending experience into a delicious martini just for you. Stat.

I am another who has been blog stalking for a month (actually it's been six months... dear me) but am only now really getting into commenting. Is that confession enough?

- I put ten times more effort into putting together a casual look than a formal/dress up look just so I look casually elegant.

- I'm so unoriginal I think I might have to snatch up this whole idea of a Friday Confessional for my own blog... Except I'm not sure I could think of anything original and cathartic enough.

I adore your blog, Miss Umber.

Lets see...

#1 - I like pulling out splitters! I mean, sure they hurt at first, but I kind of enjoy being precise with tweezers and the satisfaction of getting it out!

#2 - I also find glasses incredibly sexy.. thus why my boy must wear them (even though he needs to) - which leads me to my next confession of finding myself immensely attracted to people with different coloured eyes (like Bowie) - which Clancy also possesses; in one of his blue eyes there's a section of hazel brown.

#3 - I own a microscope. And as a 14-year-old went on a slide-making frenzy looking at anything I could at high magnifications; squashed bugs, plants, hair, skin, blood you name it.

take that.

Ew.

Mme has us beat.

AND MELISSA you have had a martini. Sorry to blow the cover on your lie. You had one with me in Havasu. But it's ok that you have forgotten.

Perhaps a better confession for you would be:
"Hello I'm Melissa and I don't like absinthe." SNORT:)

27. I buy shoes all the time (except for the past 4 months...I haven't bought a single pair) and I don't tell RW. When he notices them on my feet for the first time...I just tell him I have had them for a while.

#1 I have the same problem as BC's annoying song one. Just recently I've had Herb Alpert's 'Spanish Flea' song going round and round after I made a video of a friend and used that music. Thought I'd just about got rid of it until last night when I saw the friend in question...

#2 I have an addiction to Jaffa Cakes. The amount I've eaten since Christmas is crazy!

#3 I religiously torrent every new episode of Battlestar Galactica and Scrubs after they've been shown in the US because I can't wait for them to be shown here in the UK.

Zorah said...

I am addicted to buying office supplies. Some girls go shoe shopping, I go to the office supply store. I love office supplies!

Melissa said...

Jillian - Was it some fruity martini though? I've had those, but I just don't feel like they count. I want an olive dammit.

And no more absinthe for me... EVER!

Brad - I plan on getting a years worth of Jaffa Cakes in my belly while in Belfast this March. And HobNobs, and chocolate...

So, have you seen the new season of Scrubs? If so, do you like it?

UmberDove said...

My cheeks hurt. I love it.

And what are these Jaffa Cakes? And who is sending some to me? There might be a martini, or some oversized gold paper clips in it for you....

Melissa said...

Mmmm, Jaffa Cakes. Have you ever had Pims? Kinda the US equivalent (but not near as good). It's a spongy, thin cake base topped with orange marmalade then the top is dipped in chocolate. They go perfect with a hot cup of tea. Maybe I'll send you a little somethin somethin while I'm over there.

I think I need your address again though ;)

UmberDove said...

umm, YUM!

A little late to the party but my confession for this week is that I HAVE to have my bed made. It is a thing and one that is really hard because I am not the last one out of it EVER - including weekends. When I get home and the bed is not made, I am ticked off. Now remember that my husband is a stay at home, running his own company guy, there is no need to NOT make the bed.

Chris said...

Melissa - Is it just me or will that "year's supply of jaffa cakes" only last a couple of months? (if that!)
I'm also loving the new season of Scrubs - Courtney Cox as cheif of medicine :O

Kelly - you have to try some jaffa cakes at some point. They're so addictive but sooooo gorgeous!
