The Friday Confessional: March 5th 2010

Confession Number 348: Today's photos have absolutely, positively nothing to do with the content of these confessions. Well, except this first confession. Because I'm talking about them here. Hhm. Right. Anyways, incase my ramblings today bore you terribly, I've included a sampling of the wondrous Spring we're soaking up.

Confession Number 6: Sometimes my musical palette is terribly undiscerning. As much as I would like to boast of listening to highly diversified, unheard of indie or fabulously interesting music all the time, it's just not true. Just this week I had to run approximately fours hours of errands in the car (blerg!) and listened to the "stress-busting, easy-listening favorites of the 60's through today" the whole time. I confess to know ALL the words to a few Celine Dion songs. And John Cougar Mellencamp. Nevermind Counting Crows, Sugar Ray and even some Spice Girls. I may or may not even kinda liked it.
And when "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston came on, I belted it out at the top of my lungs.


(Don't Judge Me)

In a related confession, the very first CASSETTE TAPE I purchased with my own hard earned cash-o-la was the Bodyguard Soundtrack. So you see it's just ingrained at this point. I can't help it.

Ok, your turn and make it juicy!

Naturally, just this week, we were discussing our "musical guilty pleasures" at work.

Ashley, a cool punk chic, who talks herb all day long, confessed to Britney Spears.

Rhonda, a high-strung carnivorous Greek goddess, confessed to Barry Manilow.

Me? Avril Lavigne, bebe.

The second photo looks like those dolls/drawings that have exaggeratedly long know the ones, they are so pretty. Me Like : )

I love Counting Crows, are you kidding, ...

My list is too long and if I list you will be rolling on the floor for hours and not get any work done...well may be Cindi Lauper and Boy George Ha ha!


UmberDove said...

YES! I love not feeling alone with my guilt!

MLJ - For the record, on Halloween in my first year of highschool I dressed ALL OUT Cyndi Lauper. No one knew who I was. I found it hilarious.

MrsLittleJeans said...

that's because they were neither kool nor smart : ) cindi lauper still rocks : )

UmberDove said...

there are so many reasons why I like you ;)

Melissa said...

I have a very well rounded palette when it comes to music. My guilty pleasure though? Justin Timberlake :)

My first cassette purchase? Informer single, 12 Inches of Snow.

My WV is beans. I love beans.

mme. bookling said...

My musical pallete is stellar.

Except for the rarely-known fact that my first CD purchase ever was Crystal Lewis redoing the old hymns purchased at the local christian book store. ewwwwww. i think whitney is vastly more acceptable.

ME.... (jack black!)

mme. bookling said...


loving madonna is no guilty pleasure. she basically rules the world.

(also my first concert was MC Hammer in 6th grade. lame)

CrowNology said...

George Michael and Boy George...
Must go to Youtube now...

Melissa said...

HA! My first concert was the Newsboys... my first REAL concert was Def Leppard!

jennifer lorton said...

My first concert - The Jackson 5 - and Michael was just a little guy. I guess I'm showing my age. And if that wasn't enough of a clue, the first ALBUM I bought for myself was by America. Oh, the shame! You might now ask is it the shame of the music, or my age? I'll never tell. : )

UmberDove said...

Jennifer - Jackson 5!?! (I'm secretly jealous)

CrowNology - yes. I own "Faith." consider it confessed.

Melissa - but the real question is: When you listen to JT do you bust out some super fly dance moves? Will you record them for us? Or better yet, will you make John dance some JT for us?

Melissa said...

I do start flailing limbs, but it's something that doesn't resemble anything!

I do think John is ready for a new dance video. Do I hear rumblings of a new competition ;)

kerin rose said...

mme. bookling, I think I like you! :)....

oh, and Mona, I think Cyndi Lauper still rocks too!...

sigh, I will try again...

Bee Gees?

kerin rose said...

oh yeah, and Celine DIon...I want her to be my girlfriend!
