This thread is a repository for all those things you want to get off your chest form the outside world. I recommend you don't confess anything about anyone here. Just my suggestion.
Though we generally have a good relationship, I delete the vast majority of my mothers emails without reading them. She tends to forward me idiotic political things and chain letters.
This from the person who hates the whole cattiness factor between females. I confess my hypocrisy, too.
I have a hard time watching some of my favorite Firefly or Dr. Horrible scenes because A)Nathan Fillion is more attractive that I am in my own mind AND cooler and B) Neil Patrick Harris for the same reasons as A.
Also, I sometimes use the excuse of using the bathroom so I can have a few minutes to myself away from the kid and wife.
I support gay marriage more for the joy of causing close-minded bigots distress than anything else. Same goes for abortion, women's rights, etc. Anything that ruins the day of the ultra-conservatives.
I came to these forums looking to make new friends, and, well, I do not understand the internet as well as I should.
I don't understand the cultural obsession for vampires. Not the True Blood or Anne Rice or Laurell K. Hamilton or similar vamps, not the White Wolf oWoD and Ravenloft ones, not even old school vamps, like Stoker's Dracula. I mean I'm familiar with the psychological analysis and all. They just leave me... meh.
Mistress - have you had your blood sugar check recently? Two years ago I suddenly dropped 40 pounds, and I too told everyone I was on a diet. The I went to a doctor and found out my blood sugar was 380, my A1C was 14%, and my body was shutting down. Wish I could say I caught it in time, mostly I did, but not everything turned out okay. I changed what I eat, joined a gym, dropped another 40 pounds and I feel a lot better. Just saying, that, hey, something is different, get checked up.

To expand on my no cell situation I guess its never been a necessity yet. I have an office and do not travel. I have a home phone that's part of my cable package. In cases of emergencies I keep the car stocked with the goods I need to get it running. I guess I am pretty resourceful. That leaves convenience. Being able to check my email or look up directions would be very helpful. There are times I wish I had access to groove shark or Pandora at the lake around the fire. I just cant justify the extra bill every month. Also there is the societal element.
I know this is a generalization on my part but cell users tend to be inconsiderate jerks. I got friends who have used their cell around me like maybe 3 times. Then I have others who cant put them down for more than 5 min. Strangers talk at loud volumes and text like they are the only person that matters. They block doorways, aisles, and hallways and give you dirty looks when you politely gesture to get by them. I guess I am lucky I don't require a cell. I get to have my one man protest against rude behavior. I know the cell is probably just a symptom of bigger problems but something about them just makes me sick. /rant
I get mad too easy.
Keeping it gaming related...
I regularly trawl several gaming messageboards for things I can steal outright for my game.
I have a great deal of disdain for power-gamers.
I know that my "lucky d20" has a flaw that makes it roll a "19" much more often than it should.
And that Ral Partha miniature of a dwarf fighter with axe with an okay paint job that I won in a tourney run by Gary Gygax himself at Gen Con 1986... um, no. I won it at SimCon XII at the University of Rochester, run by a college student.

Removed a post and the replies. Please take a look at our messageboard rules. Also, there are entire websites devoted to anonymous confessions. Paizo.com may not be the best place to post these kinds of things.
No idea what was said, but I guess I should have included "keep it clean" in the title.
In third grade, I cheated on my history exam. In fourth grade, I stole my uncle Max's toupee and I glued it on my face when I was Moses in my Hebrew School play. In fifth grade, I knocked my sister Edie down the stairs and I blamed it on the dog. When my mom sent me to the summer camp for fat kids and then they served lunch I got nuts and I pigged out and they kicked me out.
But the worst thing I ever done; I mixed a pot of fake puke at home and then I went to this movie theater, hid the puke in my jacket, climbed up to the balcony and then I made a noise like this: hua-hua-hua-huaaaaaaa - and then I dumped it over the side, all over the people in the audience. And then, this was horrible, all the people started getting sick and throwing up all over each other. I never felt so bad in my entire life.

I hate Joss Whedon, Mark Zuckerberg and Alton Brown. I find the greatest part of this hatred is the looks on the faces of their fans when I tell them how I feel, if not necessarily why. The theories that some of my friends have come up with to explain this to acquaintances over the years have been some of the most hilarious things I have ever heard.
-Throught 15 years of me DMing D&D, Pathfinder and variations, dragons have only appeared in 2 sessions. And only in one of them they had any meaningful interaction with the group.
-On the other hand, I put way too many mirrors and doors without handle in my dungeons.
-I have a severe bias against Druids and shapeshifters-into-animals in general, and will often try to steer players away from those kinds of characters.
-In fact, I don't like nature-centred characters for some reason.
-It rustles my jimmies when the notations C.E. and B.C.E. are used.
-It also rustles my jimmies when players mix up languages when roleplaying (we speak Castilian, but most of our RPG books are in English). Then again, I also mix them up sometimes. And it rustles my jimmies.
-Though I very rarely get to play a character, when I do it is 95% of the times a dwarf and/or wizard, often both.
-I have stolen way more plotlines from The Accursed Kings than I care to admit.
-Though making olive oil is one of my passions and the way I earn my living, I still prefer regular oil when making french fries.
I have emotional and mental issues that I refuse to talk about with people.
The ones I hide my issues from the most is from my family, since they're old-fashioned.
They'd think I'll wind up in a mental asylum for having depression issues or needing to visit a psychiatrist.
As one guy put it, I'm a neurotic, insecure and depressed mess of a person at times, and it can get annoying for my friends.
