confession booth


**UPDATE: i have the site meter off until friday because this is too much fun. there's some good stuff here--who knew we all had such inner freaks?


alright, i must confess: i found one of my newest blogging bff's, tori, when i visited her
confession booth, and i thought it was sheer awesomeness. they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so i publically declare my amore for tori and pledge my undying devotion to her, while i straight up copy her genius idea.

the idea is simple, yet strangely thought-provoking: we've all done our fair share of stupid things in life--i'm afraid i could outnumber y'all 5 to 1. NOT something to be proud of, but hey. i own it.
and since i'm not about to tell most of those, i will admit to some degree of lameness under the protection of anonymity. sooooooo......

today i am turning off my statcounter and opening up my confession booth. feel free to air your dirty laundry, the skeletons in yours or your neighbor's closets, your pet peeves, whatever.
*update: i just took off my feedjit moniter on the sidebar that tells where you come from, also.

you can do it as "anonymous", or make up a name, whatever floats your boat. i would like to stress that i am NOT your bishop/priest/parole officer/last rights, so if you murdered someone?? go to another blog. please. NOW. don't make us cry. and to quote tori, "if you are a psycho who wears scary masks, please don't tell me. thanks."


come back and read what people write. it could be interesting. and scary. or BOTH.

tori, you smokin' hot mama--thanks for rocking it out on the front lines for us~ much love!

I'll bite.

I stole a shirt from the mall when i was on a youth conference trip.
I felt so guilty that I cried all the way home on the bus (it was a 7 hour trip.)

I never told anybody! But I never stole anything again.

Where to start?
Once I-

Made-out with my best friend's boyfriend.
Streaked across a country club golf course at 1:00 a.m.
AND
WIndow peeked on a really hot guy changing drying off from a shower.
( p.s. not on the same night)

How can I compete with that? I will still try: I ran into the back of a brand new Land Rover in the supermakert parking lot and made a dent. I was so horrified that I drove away. I should have left my insuance information, but didnt.

Anonymous said...

Wow. I seriously had to think to come up with something even though I know there are lots of things I could confess...does that mean I don't feel guilty? Hmmm.

I have had several nights recently that included alcohol and ended up swimming in the neighborhood pool (after hours mind you) sans appropriate swimming garments, AND being the only girl amongst the men. The most recent...one week ago. GASP!

Hannah said...

I trespassed onto an exclusive golf course. When the police saw me, I took off on a run, badly sliced open my hand, leaped over a 10-foot fence, and knocked myself out on the other side. The policeman caught up to me, but felt so bad that he let me go. Stupid. He probably would have just let me go in the first place...

I have only been single with no boyfriend or husband for one year of my adult life. During that year, I went a little wild. One month, I was a couple of days "late" and realized it could have been any of 3 different friends-with-benefits I had. (Even though we were careful I was still scared!) I felt like such a skank! Luckily, I was not preggers so no worries.

BTW, my "number" is still not into the double digits!

hoLLy said...

oh my gosh-some of these confessions are pretty hardcore!! wowsers. lets see, a confession of mine. um, can't think of any right now. i'll get back to ya. i will. i promise.

hey mindi, what about you? you need to confess to something too! :)

Holly O. said...

Yowzers. I am thinking my "sometimes I go to Costco on Sunday" confession is pretty tame (and lame). I'll have to come back for something good without using my real name!

Mindi said...

holy mother of confessions!! i just had to delete one that i suspect (?) was thrown on for shock value.

use it wisely, people! confession is good for the soul, but don't make us cry!

holly--{sigh} i'm surprised you haven't run into me in costco on sunday. or target.

I made out with a guy 6 years younger than me. Yes, it was legal and no, I wasn't married.

I made out with a guy so he wouldn't tell my boyfriend that I was cheating on him with another guy. I am a ho.

Tori :) said...

Take that thing off your sidebar that tells where we came from or I won't to admit to a single thing! (And I have the juiciest confessions!)

Tori :) said...

Maybe I don't have the juiciest confessions now that I'm reading the ones before me. Hmmm...

Mindi said...

tori--this is why you are the master. it is gone.

Mindi said...

i will admit to sometimes googling ex-boyfriend's names to see if anything comes up. stupid.
totally in love with my man, but curious.
i KNOW others do that sometimes.
(btw: this is how i found out one of them is GAY and is a member of "affirmation". scary.)

Anonymous said...

I google old boyfriends too. Some I can just look up on the county jail website...

Anonymous said...

I cannot STAND my sister in law. She is a whining, malicious, hypochondriac. If I sound a little bitter, it might be because I feel like all of my in-law's attention and time goes to solving her latest problem. I guess I am defensive for my children who want to be spending time with their grandparents, but can't.
Wow! That sounded mean.

I feel lots better. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

I almost cheated on my soon to be fiance.
I've lied one too many times in my life.
I've also seen way too many trashy movies on Skinamax.
For the most part, I don't like my in-laws.
Whew, that feels good.

Anonymous said...

You deleted mine - you really think it was for shock value? Now I feel terrible. It was all true!

Anonymous said...

I could dedicate a whole blog to this subject really...quite scary, but I grew up in a very liberal environment and didn't have very good role models at all. I am lucky to be alive with only one illegitamate child after all the "fun" I have had in my life. I was lucky enough to find a good man to marry me and make an honest woman out of me. mindi: I google old boyfriends too, just out of curiosity....

FARTED in the MTC during the OPENING prayer when I was a senior in high school seeing my older brother off on a mission!! I'll never forget it and neither will my family and everyone else that knows! Can you say LOUD?

sorry anonymous that i deleted!! i heart that it would have been true, and you have definitely lived the rock star life, but my 13 year old likey to read this sometimes.......

thank you for commenting. give me the watered down verison!

Now I'm curious what the deleted one said...

Anonymous said...

I secretly thought that after 1 year of marriage if it wasn't all that I thought it should be I would ditch my man and hopefully go back to a random guy that I liked and he liked me. I have been married for a long time and have a lot of kids with the same guy I thought I might ditch. Wow... I just said or typed that outloud for the first time... it felt good!

Amy said...

Mindi-
You know most of the crazy things I have done...mostly because you were rigth there with me. So... go get a Diet D.P. and sit back and relax and let your mind wonder to all of my crazy crazy things I should confess and have a good laugh.

Anonymous said...

I cannot leave a real confession with a possibility that a 13 year old may see this.


my watered down confession:
I made out and had levi sex with my boss at work in several booths at the restaurant we both worked at.
He was hot but I was hotter.

Mindi said...

no confessions with the word sex and missionary in the same sentence!! in fact, no confessions with the word sex in it at all!! my eyes! my eyes!

y'all are gonna get me in trouble. play nice.

I found out one of my best friends is gay.
We stopped talking to each other, not because he's gay, but because "we" used to make fun of them when we were younger :( Now it just feels awkward.

And I don't have anything against gays.

I'm just back to click the box that sends me follow up comments via email. That way I can be nosy and lazy at the same time. Cheers!

Wowsa these are some serious confessions.

I will confess that I went to Ikea yesterday. Mostly because I knew it wouldn't be crowded cause all the good Mormons are at church...

Anonymous said...

when "cuddling" with my husband (who i totally adore and love with all my heart) i pictured "cuddling" with another guy i thought was hot. i feel like a horrible wife!! o- and yes...when i was in high school (maybe 17 years old), i made out with a 30 year old guy that my friend liked, on a school night, at his house. i went straight to school the next morning. where were my parents?

Holly said...

This is VERY interesting!! I love to see that not everyone is not as "molly" as they play up to be.

Christie said...

Former deleted comment back with my "watered down version". And I apologize for including censored information in the last post. I really wasn't trying to be shocking, so I'm sorry.

I'm LDS but I drink coffee almost every day.

When I was attending BYU I hit a white ford escort in the parking lot - did serious damage, but left no note.

I think those confessions were ok, so I'll leave it there. Thats enough, right?

I got a boob job when I was 19 & paid in cash with babysitting money.

I go to my dentist because he thinks I look like Gweneth Paltrow & tells me.

I hate the fake flowers my mother-in-law just put in my pots in front of my house!

I think it feels good to pick my nose.

I'm so scared of the dentist I haven't been in 16 years...but I brush my teeth 3 times a day so it should be OK...right??

I feel very uncomfortable around my in-laws even after many years. We have very little in common so I don't talk much and they just think I am quiet and shy. Mostly, I just find them dull. I am totally the outsider. I hate it.

This is the best idea ever!!

I rolled into a car in a bank parking lot and got so freaked out, I drove off, leaving significant damage.
I often wonder what would happen if I divorced my hubby.
Sometimes I really don't like being a Mom, and wish I could go back.
I am secretly very jealous and want to know info about my husbands old girlfriends, but not from him.
Wow!!! That felt good!!

I also really like to pick my nose. I make fun of other people who do the pick and flip, but secretly, I'm one of them.

I LOVE to read all about these confessions. But the real confession is that they are just not juicy enough.

Top this: I made out with my best friend's boyfriend IN THE CHURCH OVERFLOW. I am horrible.

I think my sister in law is an absolutely terrible mother.

I love having a clean nose (inside) so I pick it. There I said it aloud.

I used to teach high school, and I had a couple of students over the years that I had the hots for. I never did anything, obviously (and never would--I know what's inappropriate), but since we're confessing...

Hmmm...let's see...I fell in love with a married man, we both divorced our mates and then married each other. We had a baby, THEN he was seduced by a somewhat-famous woman(who it turned out is a married-man freak--she has been with dozens of married men--I'd love to read her confessions!), then he divorced me--I said fine, moved out and bought my own house. THEN I had sex with him every day until he realized what a huge mistake he made & finally divorced this other woman. THEN we married each other again and now we live happily ever after. Seriously. I don't tell anyone this, (but there are still several people at our work who know what happened because we all work together!) You would never know it to meet me. I'm very quiet and shy!
I've only been with 2 men (my 2 hubbys) in my whole life.

anoymous who's nervous about my stat counter: i've actually never used that since about the first week i installed it. it's numbers were wayyyyyy off and i didn't likey. i actually just went to try to get signed into it and forgot my password. now look down at the bottm: IT'S GONE.

google analytics still works but it doesn't tell me anything more specific than states and cities people come from, not times and dates.

your confessions are safe--the site meter is off until friday!

Although not as dark as some, hopefully inspiring. Not anonymous since it only makes sense if you know a guy is writing it.

My Honeymoon night. After a wedding, dinner, reception, drive to Park City Utah, and well, other things, I find myself so exhausted I can barely stand, but in need of a trip to the bathroom.
I get out of bed with my eyes closed. I open one eye just long enough to see where I'm going, close it, and shuffle a few steps. I repeat this as I get closer to the bathroom, but the length of time my eyes are shut grows each time. Finally I make it, and with my eyes closed, start taking care of business.
Something is wrong. The sound. The sound just isn't right. I open one eye. Then the other. It's then I realize I've completely missed the toilet! I'm not even facing the right wall!!!!
I stop and in a panic, wonder about my new wife (as of a few hours). Did she hear? Does she possess the finely tuned audio reception that can distinguish the upper harmonics of a missed shot that I as a guy with 21 years of experience had mastered? Ah, but she has brothers. Curse them! I'll play it cool. No, I'm way past cool. Go for humor and pray. I state, "Ya know, if you're ever really tired, and need the bathroom, it works out much better if you keep your eyes open". She busted up laughing.
From that point on, she realized I would be a life-long project.

I cannot stand my sister in law. I think my brother who is married to her lost his brain and personality when they got married. He can no longer thing for himself. I think she is a bad mom and uses me. I have tried to be nice but cannot be around them anymore.

I confess I married a "Molly Mormon" and she is the best thing ever and I am so glad she does not do the things I am reading on this confessional......I guess I hope she doesn't......no, she doesn't. I am pretty sure.

I confess that I think Mormons who drink coffee and go to the store on Sunday are hypocrites and do more damage to the LDS movement than any non-mormon could ever do. Instant Karma's gonna get them if I don't get them first. Why don't they just stop pretending they are something they are not?

I know it is not "cool" but my wife and I are LDS even when we go on vacation and I like it that way. Not perfect but trying.

Mindi said...

well, we are getting it straight, no watering it down, huh??
that's good. what fun would this be if there wasn't a little bit of drama??

anonymous--thanks for putting it out there. however, please don't get me as i am one of those naughty momos who goes to the store on sunday. let me live at least to blog for a few more days.....and maybe to raise my kids.

p.s.--some of the "naughty" confessions ARE from good mormon girls.
that's why it's anonymous.

Pretty arrogant. Typical uptight Mormon. They are always the quickest to pass judgement, I've found. I've also found that THEY are the ones who give us Mormons a bad name.

"Instant Karma's gonna get them if I don't get them first." Yeah, whatever dude.

Honey, you really need to check your dictionary, hypocrite: a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings.

I have never told anyone not to wath R rated movies, I never go shopping on Sunday, neither drink or cheat, so nee ner neee ner to you.

My husband cheated on me with someone who I thought was my friend. Needless to say that my friendship with her ended. Unfortunately I still think their "friendship" continues (if you know what I mean). Even if they aren't still hooking up I'm not sure that I can ever truly trust him again. Sad huh.

I think it's sad that people are making fun of Mr. Anonymous because he claims he and his wife are LDS 24-7 instead of just on Sunday (though some of us aren't even really LDS on Sunday either). The "holier than thou" attitude could have been a little less, but other than that- I think it's awesome. I wish I was more like that.
Why is practicing what we profess to believe such a joke?

About a month ago, I was at Wal Mart and I put a thing of toilet paper on the bottom of my cart. My checker was so slow, so white trash and I was so mad at her and wanted to get out of there, I forgot to have her ring up the toilet paper. By the time I got to the car and realized, there was no way I was going back in (w/my screaming kids). I promised myself, I would take the UPC back in later and have them ring it up. Like I said, that was a month ago. I think all the TP is gone by now.

Anonymous said...

Well said anonymous and Mr. Anonymous. I couldn't agree more.

Mindi said...

anonymous--you have a good point, and i believe that practicing what we preach is NOT a joke.

i think the problem with mr. anonymous is that he was in "attack mode" and when you do that, people get defensive and things can turn ugly REALLY quick.

if mr anonymous wanted to simply state that he was married to a molly mormon and she was the best thing he ever did and that they were lds even on vacay (which is what most mormons do, HELLO) without the direct attacks and references to "i'm gonna get you" it could have gone down a little easier.

{getting off my soapbox now.}

Anonymous said...

Mindi- Exactly. That's why I said we could have done without the "Holier than thou" attitude, because he didn't come off as humble. He came off as very judgmental. But all in all- he was right.

Mindi said...

i concur. (like that big word i just used? me too)

ahhhh, drama. isn't it fun?? :)

readers:
i also would like to point out that, unless someone specifically referenced mormon in their comment, these comments are also left by non-mormons (or non-members, for those in the know)--we have all shapes and sizes and religions going on here at word to your mother--good stuff.

Anonymous said...

I didn't think that Mr. anonymous was being judgmental. He was stating an opinion, with actually a little humor. Isn't
"Instant Karma's gonna get them if I don't get them first" from a U2 song?

If people here are worried about what other people think about their anonymous "confessions" why did they write them? It's all for fun, right? The guilty take the truth to be hard.
