A Confession

I have to come clean with something.

You know when people reach this sort of decision, it means that the guilt they're keeping inside is unbearable. It is the kind where you lose sleep thinking about it, wake up being reminded of it and go through your day with it slowly eating away at your insides. But it's over now - I'm washing my hands clean of this horrible truth I have been keeping bottled up inside.

I know I'm going to disappoint a lot of people out there. Hell, I'll probably get more than a few raised eyebrows and people disowning me as a friend, and some of my senior doctors will probably write me bad references and ruin my future job prospects. But I'd like to let you know that I appreciate our friendships thus far and all the good times we've had together.

I just watched Gossip Girl and I like it... *sigh*
(This post was shamelessly stolen from a buddy who also came to this confession a year ago. Since then he has been in therapy for his obliterated self-esteem. At least I'll have company when I join his psychiatrist.)

The fallout won't be that major because at least you recognize that you should feel horrible for liking it. It's the ones who continue to declare that Gossip Girl is the best show on television who need to be shunned.

Bal said...

Gossip Girl?! (slaps you with the same trout you hit ME with when I confessed to watching The Gilmore Girls)

The Angry Medic said...

Mayhem: It's true, I repent! *bursts into tears* Forgive me Father, for I have sinned! Throw those rehab facility details this way!

Bal: No. No. Gossip Girl and The Gilmore Girls are NOT the same. You chose that over BATTLESTAR FRIGGIN' GALACTICA. For that there is no redemption. *roasts the damn trout and slaps you with its bony half-eaten arse*

Yay, Angry, now you do know that i must start watching now as well...your likes are as infectious as MRSA to me....in other words, i wanna be like you! (reminds self to discuss with psychiatrist!).
Great to see you again!

I LOVE gossip girl. I watched it online with a friend before season 1 was out in the UK and since then I follow it online to keep in time with the US.

I know it makes me really sad, but it's actually addictive. I made the boyf watch it the other day and he enjoyed it. It's the title that puts people off!

Spotted: Angry Medic had some unexpected contact with a certain girl in love with gossip.

He's clearly very stressed at his clinical placement.

I know exactly how you feel, I totally rubbished it when it came out. Now I can't go a few days without thinking about miss van der woodsen and her dramas.

I have my guilty pleasures too. One of them actually being "Sponge Bob Square Pants".
