confession booth TRES

so.....

love it or hate it, it's time for the quarterly confession booth--


hands down, the confession booth has been my most-requested posting.

it was all sorts of craziness when i opened the first booth back in june, and even more mayhem when the second booth went down in october.

many people have strong opinions about the confession booth--that's what makes it interesting. if you love a little scandal and some not-so-light reading, you will be back again & again.

if you frown on it and pass judgement, please come back this friday. let's still be friends~



so.....without further ado.........

today i am turning off my statcounter, removing my feedjit, and opening up confession booth tres. feel free to air your dirty laundry, the skeletons in yours or your neighbor's closets, your pet peeves, whatever. you can do it as "anonymous", or make up a name, whatever floats your boat.


but here's how it's going down:


1. i'm using comment moderation. try to not get your freak on too much-- if it's too insane for even a jaded chick like me, it won't make the cut. but give it your best shot! I VALIDATE YOU.

2. i would like to stress that i am NOT your bishop/priest/parole officer/last rights, so if you murdered someone and/or hacked them up and stuffed them in the drywall?? go to another blog. please. NOW.

don't make me cry.

3. feel free to confess without me knowing who you are or where you're from--everything will be turned off until the booth is closed.

4. i reserve the right to post or not post your confession. please try to refrain from standing on soapboxes and criticizing other confessions and/or confessors--let's all just play nice and get along.


and to quote tori, the genius creator of confession booth, "if you are a psycho who wears scary masks, please don't tell me. thanks."


we will be taking confession until midnight, thursday the 22nd.

I confess that I am in love with my best friend.

The coolest thing about it is that I want to talk with him and tell him everything while wanting to nail him at the same time!

I hope that wasn't too racy. I have nothing to measure it by.

You posted about loving how your husband smells. I was jealous because I can't stand the way my D.H. (dear hubby) smells.

I tried to tell him once, but he got so offended.I never tried again. I've given him cologne for every christmas and birthday for the last 5 years but he won't wear them.

He smells like a mixture of bad body odor and fried food.

I try not to judge other moms because I am not always the mother of the year (i.e. too much candy as bribery, and TV watching for the kid), but I think one of the girls in my close circle of friends is NOT a good mom.
She treats her kids(the older one especially) horribly and then she brags about it when we get together. Stuff like how she slaps her kid in the face, or hits him with a spatula... Or there was the time she dropped him off on the side of the road and drove a few blocks away as a punishment (he was 3, by the way).
I want to tell her to her face (or call CPS), but my husband forbids me to... So that is why I am getting it off my chest here.
I can't decide if I am partly responsible because I can't do or say anything about it. I don't think she really beats her kids or anything, but who really knows?

I think there is a group of crazy women that need validation from comments/giveaways on their blogs.
One of them is my friend. So sick of hearing about her cyber-BFFs. (& no it isn't because I am jealous) In real life, she has few close friends because she is b-otch. Sort of the cynical type. I know her and love her for who she is. She is obsessed with FB & her blog. Not so popular in HS but is trying to be the person that she never was growing up. So strange to me.

I've never posted on this blog, but i read it faithfully. Every day.

I'm in a very happy, functional marriage, but often think about what would happen if I left. For no good reason, just because. I got married at 19 and never had a really fun single life. I sometimes think I missed out on a lot of things I will never get to experience.

We've been trying to get pregnant for about 5 years - unsuccessfully. Sometimes I'm glad it hasn't worked out. Sometimes I'm glad we don't have kids. Sometimes I don't even want kids and want to quit "trying" and start preventing again.

I have a crush on a guy that is getting divorced and wonder what would happen if we hooked up.

I think about what my life would be like if I wasn't "Mormon". Would it be better or worse? More fun? Or screwed up?

I HATE where I live and I want to move. Don't have the huevos to tell the husband. I also can't stand his sister. She's a B.

some blogs were most def a BLOGLIGATION to comment on, but most i really geniuinely enjoy.

i could keep up during my first stages of blogging when i only had 20 or so that i liked and interacted with, then it got to a point where i was spending hours and hours trying to "keep up" and comment on each and every one and i had a mini break down.

so that's where it's at.

I actually have a few confessions:
1. To the people who say they "wished they weren't Mormon to see what it's like"- don't worry, you're not missing out. I am a convert (converted at 24) so I "lived my life" so-to-say before I converted. The grass is NEVER greener on the other side.
2. My Bishop is horrible. You would think he would want to set a better example to the new church go-ers but he doesn't. He brags about his "home theater", he brags about EVERYTHING! I thought Bishops were supposed to be humble people? Anyways, he sucks. Just wanted to tell you that.
3. I too, pee in the shower. And I'm a girl.
4. (last one) When I watch TV and someone goes under water, I hold my breath to see if I can last as long as they do.

Okay, I may or may not have made the "I hate skulls" comment on your last Confession Booth. Truth is, I still hate skulls (especially bedazzled) for girls, but I feel really bad for saying it.

I know that you like skulls and it was the ONLY thing that I didn't love about you. Which is weird, because I totally think you are a great person, I have loved reading your blog and find no other faults (not that I should look for any or am even worthy of trying to find any). And, loving skulls is a personal preference, not a fault.

I have so many faults myself. My husband and I have only had sex twice in four months. I am not completely happy with the way that I look. I google old boyfriends on the internet (just cuz). I blow my nose in the shower. I drink from time-to-time and am somewhat of a prude. I hardly ever go to church, even though I know that I should.

Please forgive me Mindi.

It is OK to have sex when you are married in the LDS religion & whatever you do is between you & your spouse. I hope we are all a bit freaky behind closed doors no matter what religion you are.

I love that someone who isn't a Mormon wonders what the rules are - you confessors are all making us (mormons) look like a bunch of crazy people!

The rules are basically up to each married couple ... we don't get lessons in Sunday School on the do's & don'ts. Thanks for asking though.

P.S. Mindi - I rarely comment on other blogs - including yours! I am a faithful reader though.

Anonymous said...

I don't think that there is a guide book to LDS sex. My previous bishop told me that as long as what we were doing in the bedroom (husband & wife) was to help with procreation (whether the actual act or keeping the act interesting) it was okay. However, the church is against anything that might have to do with adultry (multiples), against porn and against sodomy.

I don't really know the stance on "toys", but if you feel like you are doing something wrong, you might want to go with your gut feeling.

Anonymous said...

Just for the record, I don't think people are dissing Mindi for the lack of comments, but rather the perceived drop in friendship. I'm not sure if she commented on everyone's blog equally faithfully and interested-ly, but it seems that there were a enough people commenting about missing her comments to guess that she probably did. And that probably led them to believe they were closer friends than just every old blogger. And then when she went from commenting on every blog, every day to once a month....well, it seems like she has dropped THEM not blogging. Maybe that seems pathetic, but most women blog because they are stuck home with kids with no real social circle, and blogging is a way out. If you form friendships that way because it's the only way you can, I'm not sure if that's pathetic or resourceful. Anyway, after Mindi finishes her hiatus and is restored to her normal blogging self, I'm sure she'll start commenting on the blogs she really likes. And if I'm not one of them, I'll learn to live with it. I hope others will too. But I don't think it's fair to make people who feel the loss of a friend (internet or otherwise) feel bad about it.

I don't agree with the advice that if something makes you feel umcomfortable sexually, you shouldn't do it. Because just having sex the first time made me feel kind of weird and uncomfortable. So I guess I shouldn't have been having sex at all by that definition (even though it was my wedding night and we were A-OK.)

My advice is, there are a lot of ways to have enjoyable sex. It's not fair to yourself to say "No. I won't do that" without trying it once. You never know! And if you want some mechanical toys and other fun supplies, ask omgirl. She's an "equipment seller".

1. the fact that we are supposed to be christlike and fellowship yet we still have these clicks...that some people STILL feel/act/behave like they are better than everyone else... when ll we are doing is laughing at them..

2. that leaders of the church have told the members FOR YEARS to be preprared... to learn to be self sufficient, yet life long members pay no mind and assume they will be able to rely on family/ neighbors who are prepared in times of trouble. Not realizing it aint gonna happen!

3. It really bothers me when someone who is supposed to be a worthy priesthood holder... behaves one way at certain times but then when it comes to business relations, has no work ethic, and is dishonest as a business partner. How can he be both ways!! And how do I not judge that!!! I am trying hard to not judge as I dont want to be judged back... but come on!!!

Oh so true Jennie W. - my wedding night was not at all what I expected. Turn on the switch within hours after years of being told NO! Kind of crazy.

Anonymous said...

I completely agree about the wedding night thing. Mine was awful. Probably because I had been around the block and my spouse hadn't. He had no clue.

A few books and many years later and things are much better. We do experiment with stuff to keep it new and interesting.

And to the fat lady that doesn't like anything: Why don't you lose some weight and try to be happy? You sound like a miserable person.

the best part about this confession booth?

that the word SODOMY has been thrown around.....

awesome!

i have heard that some stake presidents have counseled members against using facebook--but i think it's an individual thing. i've also know of a stake president who asked their members not to let their kids have sleep overs.

i use facebook AND let my kids sleep over at certain homes. (usually only those where pedophiles live.....)

but i don't hate if somebody chooses not to.

I am not afraid to tell people how we got debt free (DAVE RAMSEY) because so many people ask me. To most people his teachings are not common sense otherwise my neighborhood wouldn't be 30% empty & in foreclosure. I am constantly loaning out my books & CD's to friends, neighbors & family & I am happy to share.

Yes people make fun of me but 2 things GOOD have come from me having my blog ... helping others get debt free & keeping a "journal."

P.S. Anonymous - You probably don't read my blog, but I know there are people who do that think I am a dork about Dave Ramsey - so I thought I would explain myself.

Anonymous said...

Okay, I am a Utah woman and I DON'T have any of the "fake" items that are listed on the stereotypical Utah women comment, but....

Sometimes, I am totally thankful for those women. Hear me out, I would totally rather see someone trying to take care of themselves and keep healthy, rather than some chick that talks badly about everyone else because she is not happy with herself, nor is she healthy.

I see this all the time, women who just make fun of the women that look good, merely because they are jealous (I know, you don't think you are, but you are). Most of these women do NOT take care of themselves... (ie: shower and clean out their fat rolls every few days, sit and watch TV all the time, never give their hubbie any lovin' because they know they smell like last weeks burritos, and seriously...they stalk all their cute aquaintances blogs).

I am not standing on a soapbox, but happy that I try. I have my natural color hair, have never paid to have my body "modified" (except for a couple of fake-tans back in HS) and I am not completely happy with myself all the time, but I do take care of myself.

I shower every day, I am not a couch potato and I do try and exercise. I eat pretty healthy and try and take care of myself. So...believe me, even though I don't fit in the blonde bombshell category, I am so thankful for the Utah women that take care of themselves.

I have been many places in this world and ewww, have you seen all of the people that just don't give a S*&$?

i have real boobs with a bit 'o fake in them and wish they were ALL fake, cuz the real stuff sags on mindi.

don't currently have a fake tan, but love getting one.

have a real diamond that is a generous size and is paid for, but also have a fake giant diamond ring that i heart.

It's not sodomy if you're married. Once you're married anything goes, if you ask me.

It's me, Anonymous Fake-Utah H8r (1/21 4:01), again. I'm not complaining against those cookie-cutter girls because I'm jealous. I'm a super good-looking pale brunette who is proud to be a nail-biter.

I'm very comfortable with myself and feel really bad for all the Utah girls who don't seem to be. Thus they all try to fit into the same mold. Just be who you are.

Oh, BTW, just because you were blond when you were five years old, doesn't mean you should still try to be. Accept the dark hair! (But it's OK to cover the greys Mindi. I'll be there soon enough myself. At that point it's medically necessary to color your hair.) I just hate those wacky highlights.

My bishop is my friend on facebook - in fact, we have a "Group" on FB for our ward, so I'm pretty sure its ok. In fact, he also works for the church.

Also - I learned in a marriage and family class at BYU that ANY thing is ok in the bedroom between a married couple so long as:

a) both parties consent and feel comfortable
b) nothing is abusive

**It does not have to lead to procreation. Oral, backdoor, toys, etc are OK as long as both partners are ok with it.

Now for my confession:

I don't like church. I hate going, and I love to go to lunch/dinner/movies/shopping on Sundays when places are less crowded. I grew up outside of Utah, and loved church, but I feel like things are different in Utah - like a social pressure or something to go. People in my ward are so fake, and after 3 1/2 years, I can honestly say I don't have one friend. I don't have VTs. I don't have hometeachers (that come anyway), and I don't have a calling. I even told my bishop how I feel - but he did make me his friend on FB so its all good I suppose.

Just because someone chooses to color their hair ANY color, blond or otherwise does not necessarily mean that they are not comfortable with themselves. That's a little bit of a stretch.

What is back combing?

Anonymous said...

My husband had to push the garage door open the other night when the power went out and then came back on (around 8:30p.m). I dared him to do it TOTALLY nude. If he did I would give him oral you-know-what. Keep in mind that the power was back on and the garage light is automatic, so that means ON. When I dared him I was pretty confident he wouldn't do it. BUT I WAS WRONG. He did it, and I have never laughed so hard. We are pretty sure when he was lifting it, that a few cars may have seen a little more than they expected when he saw them coming and couldn't push the door down fast enough. So great.

And yep, I had to live up to my end of the bargain. Not my favorite thing. But probably worth it.

When my husband and I were on vacation last year staying at a nice resort, we decided to take "ADVANTAGE" of our balcony.

It was overlooking a golf course, but had only a lattice partition between us and the next room. Which was totally see-through.

And the balcony light could not be turned off. So we figure somebody either got a great show, or needs to be in therapy right about now.

BACKCOMBING is when you take sections of your hair at the back of your scalp up top and rat it to make it fuller, then comb the top part down over it.

it makes it a little more boufant.

alright Mindi! Here is my confession-
I have a BRAZILIAN bikini wax and my hubby LOVES it! If you want to spice it up, give it a try! It was not as painful as I imagined and it is fairly easy to keep up with shaving.
I printed the picture "sometimes men make the strangest requests" picture that was on your blog and gave it to him,we both laughed so hard!
I will be hairless forever more! =)

Anonymous said...

Hairless is the way to go!! I have been bald 'down there' for about 3 years now. The funny thing is that I am paranoid about going to the doctor to get my physical. I haven't been for that long because I wonder what he will think? Is that weird?? I also found out I do have an identifying 'mole' if I ever get kidnapped and my body is found somewhere. Go baldies!!

I'm one of those in the stake where the stake president asked us to cancel our facebook accounts. I'll admit that I was a little confused by the request. My husband is on the High Council and had the opportunity to ask him why. His explanation was very simple. He is in a position to see the worst parts of things that may have been intended as good. "Private" to some means "secret" and can lead to other things. He told my husband that he is kind of like the ER doctor who would never recommend riding a motorcycle. He sees the results of the accidents and has a fuller understanding of the danger. Sure enough, within a week or two my husband sat in on a disciplinary council where a member's problems traced back to his/her facebook account. Avoid temptation--enough said.
And I did cancel my facebook account and it hasn't been a big deal.

I love and adore my husband tons, honestly. He has a few annoying traits that I haven't ever told him because it wouldn't help. The sex is great - even after three kids it's happenin' about every other day. aw yeah.

BUT, he never ever surprises me, he's so not romantic, clueless about rings so he got a fake, did a super lame proposal because he has no imagination, and can never make up his mind about a damn thing, even where to eat. It's so annoying to me and he can sense it, but I never want to be mean. He's a really nice guy - sometimes almost too nice.
I love him, he's great, just had to get that off my chest.

I am an active member of the church and I think that last post (11:42 am)is a little ridiculous. Too much policing by the church. It comes down to the individual person. Temptations are all around. If the person is going to slip they will find a way to do it with or without a Facebook account. The church needs to stop trying to control peoples lives. It is downright stifling sometimes.

It was meant as advice from our Stake President. He certainly hasn't come into our homes to see if we all have Facebook accounts. We have our free agency and I exercised mine to be obedient, whether or not I agree 100%.

I'm just wonderin what the Stake Pres. would think about the confession booth. I do think the church (more so the people) get too involved in people's personal lives. That's where I think all this sex-guilt/confusion comes from. Now, people are being made to feel guilty if they do have a Facebook account. I mean if you really want to guard yourself against that much danger, get rid of the internet, tv, magazines and go live in Colorado City. I don't want to sound like a hater, but come on people! Learn to think for yourself and quit letting the church dictate our every move. Take a step back and really think about what is best for you and your family and be done with the guilt.
