Secret confession

Captain's Log, Stardate 01.22.2008

I am a teeny bopper at heart.

I confess it. I’m coming clean.

I love N’Sync and the Backstreet Boys. They were cute. And they sang well. And their songs just melt my heart. I have to admit I partially liked the Chinese Back Dormitory Boys because they were singing one of my favorite songs, “As Long As You Love Me” and “I Want It That Way.” (Well, and plus they were darn funny.)

I love the movies, too! Captain Caffeine is annoyed because I TiVo’d The Princess Diaries one AND two. I just saw The Lizzie McGuire Movie and loved the whole “fall in love with a rock star and perform on stage” fantasy.

And now that I’m doing research for a young adult novel series I’m working on, I get to indulge all my secret vices.

What about you? Any favorite bands/songs/movies you secretly love? The songs you’ve hidden in a special folder on your iPod so your kids/friends/spouse can’t find them? The movies you watch late at night after everyone’s gone to bed so you can indulge without an audience?


  1. I enjoyed the Lizzie McGuire movie too.
    on the bus up we had another of Hillary Duff's movies where she goes to a music place in summer it was fun.
    I have to say i often watch the kids shows like Lizzie McGuire, etc.
    not sure about music. but I have been known to hire or watch the teen movies

  2. Camy~
    You crack me up! I just posted a similar confession (disguised as a review for a tween/teen book on my blog yesterday!)
    Because I live with two girls~ ages 14 and 7~ I find myself drawn into that world. So, at least, I have an excuse! LOL
    We LOVE the movies you mentioned. And, I could give you a list of several more you may want to TiVo.

  3. Sometimes when the music on KLOVE is too boring, I tune the radio to AirOne. I like Brandon Heath's music, Relient K, and others people in my age bracket (45) might not appreciate.

    And yes, I like both Princess Diaries movies, plus What a Girl Wants, and Enchanted.

  4. how funny!!! just yesterday I was on youtube and watching BSB, Nsync and Spice Girls!!!

  5. I picked up a 3-disc set yesterday, The MONKEES Greatest Hits. Does that count? I got addicted to the show the summer before my senior year of high school when it was on Nikelodeon every day.

  6. I love all those crazy teeny-bopper movies. I just sit and watch them over and over again!

  7. I loved the Lizzie McGuire movies and the show. I'm also a big Miley Cyrus fan. I watch her show all the time with the kiddos and I have been known to sing along to her songs.

  8. I can't say I have any secret vices. My husband knows better than to make fun of me about anything. ;) I am intrigued to hear about a young adult series. That sounds exciting.

  9. Menudo. Remember Ricky Martin before he was Ricky Martin? :)

  10. I love 13 Going On 30 (which may have a different name in the States). Jennifer Garner stars in it about a 13 year old girl who wakes up to find herself 30.

    I must have seen it at least 8 times and jsut writing this makes me want to see it again!

  11. I like Nsync and Spice Girls too! I also watch all the teeny bopper movies including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies.(embarassing) God bless us all! :)

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group.

I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me.

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
