CONFESS! [More:] I had real trouble learning to drive. It took three teachers and about a year. And that's automatic, I failed manual after two honest tries.
I have a networking database so I can get to a place I'd like to be in my life/work. I feel so Machiavellian and dirty.

I was afraid to learn to drive. I didn't learn until I was almost 19. I remember arguing that I could just take buses everywhere. Of course, once I learned and got over it, it was wonderful.

This is the least of my confessions.

Does it bring all the boys to the yard?

I have imaginary boyfriends. We go on dates and do all kinds of steamy stuff in my head. They also pine for me. You could cut the yearning with a knife.

I did confess once but I got drunk to do it (so suppose I'm inadvertantly confessing that I got drunk once). Now I just figure people will either figure out on their own or not, whatever.

I confess, and repent. I linked to a video of Rick Astley singing "Never Gonna Give You Up" even though I knew it was a tired and lame thing to do.

Pfft...that's NOTHING, rainbaby. I actually crashed my car during my license test. The testing guy told me that I was the worst driver he had ever seen in all his years at the job and that he was whiteknuckled the whole time because he thought I was too stupid to know where the brakes were.

I didn't get my license until I was 21. And I only did it then because I needed ID.

I wasn't supposed to but when I read, up thread, about stynxno's milkshake, I went out a bought one.

rainbaby I have tried multiple times over the years to learn to drive stick. I fail mainly because everyone I've ever lived with has owned automatics and that includes the farm trucks (yeah, I know o_O) Well, except for my x when he was in college but he was such a horrifically bad teacher that I think we tried, like, once.

I confess to lusting after a new iPod, even though I have 2 already.

I'm a bad influence on everyone.

I haven't commented on MetaChat for more than 2 weeks, and my only posts in all of August were all OMG BUNNY related.

I think that tops bad driving, RickRolling AND stabbing. And I drank stynxno's milkshake and was not impressed. But using a straw that stretched from California to New York may have had some effect.

I must confess that I'm not impressed. Neither is my cat.
posted by Daniel Charms 05 September | 13:02
Aye, it took me four goes at age 25 to get my license (automatic). But, um, I only have one eye, so...y'know. That's my excuse for my general rubbishness.

I CONFESS! it was scarabic! but I **defy** you to find the body.

I sang along to a cheesy Todd Rundgren song on YouTube last night.

And I liked it.

I am lazy. Really, truly lazy.
posted by Specklet 05 September | 13:42
It depends, planetboy. "We Gotta Get You a Woman" cheesy or "Bang on the Drum All Day" cheesy or "A Dream Goes On Forever" cheesy? (Rundgren is like a fully-stocked cheese shop of pop music)

"Love Is The Answer"

That kind of cheesy.

I act like I think everybody is just as good as everybody else, but I really prefer the non-stupid ones.

When I was younger, the passion I felt growing in my chest when arguing I now know was angina. No matter how valid my facts and logic, I could not win a verbal argument because my opponent could out-emotion me. What I thought was the advantage of exuberance was actually ripping me to shreds on the inside. The damage to my son's life that I could have prevented had I been healthy is too far gone now to salvage, even if I had the money to hire the lawyers and other professionals I would need.

Whew, that was cathartic.

There, and I actually hit Post this time.

My neighbor was just on the East Coast, and since we took care of his cat, he brought back some peanuts and honey from Virginia, and the first thing that came to my mind was rainbaby.

So, apparently, imaginary internet acquaintances occupy a space in my mind. . .hmmmm. . .

Forgive Mecha, i am a sinner.

When no one is around to see what i look like, my hair is often up in a clip, because it's an actual physical weight and palpable heat and i'm not looking at me, so i most probably look somewhere in the range of some spunky 80s telly tween to a Philip Tracy hat wearer most of the time.
Combined with my variable stage of invariable undress, it's a crime against all that is holy.

Circumstances willing, i'd be rocking it 24/7, but alas and alack--

I have a history of joining internet dating sites, but then never reading any of the profiles or going on any dates.

If I tried just a little bit I could be more attractive, but usually I don't try.

I have depression (big woop, that's not the confession), and sometimes I let my depression be the cover for simply being a lame-ass.

I am a crappy foster parent. But I excuse myself (far too easily, think Elizabeth Bennett's father) because the kids are better off with me than without me.

I confess... I like John Denver. Still. And have a couple of his cds. Please don't hurt me.
