Honest Scrap Award

A long time friend Pam at Easily Amused tagged me for this award, it's been a while since I had one bestowed on me. The Honest Scrap Award Rules say that I must:

1. Brag about the award.
2. Include the name of the blogger who gave you the award and link back to that blogger.
3. Choose a selection of blogs that you find brilliant in honest content.
4. Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with this award.
5. List at least ten honest things about yourself.

Okay, 10 honest things about myself. Hmmmmmmmm. Well I am too exhausted and stressed to be deep and serious so here are some random honest things about me:

1. I don't "try" the grapes at the grocery store. EVER. That's stealing!!!

2. I LOVE cold apple pie. It calls to me. When I am stressed, that is what I reach for. I could eat the whole pie.

3. If I see someone bend back the spine of a book or fold down the corner or anything that "damages" it I seriously have heart palpations. Actually that goes for scrapbooking paper as well. Just ask my friends about what happened at Megascrap Meet 2008.

4. When I was 3 I ate a tub of Margarine. Yes, ALL of it. As my mother has told me many times "and it was a brand new tub too!". Don't ask me why I did it - maybe it was because I was the slowest eater in the world and the family left me at the table by myself and I was bored . . . . Don't worry, it didn't stay down long. Ewwwwww!

5. I was a tomboy as a kid. I was great at climbing trees, ran around without a shirt until I was 8 whenever I could, caught toads and almost always won in a game of dodge ball.

6. Who am I kidding? That pie referenced in #2. Yah, I have eaten a whole one. Too many times to count in my lifetime. Sigh. Hanging head in shame.

7. I have never ridden in a limo

8. I REALLY want to learn to drive stick. Then I want to learn to drive a big rig, a race car and a motorcycle. Not necessarily in that order. For real, no joke.

9. My son recently started to compulsively listen to Justin Bieber - the kid weird's me out (Bieber, not my son). He sounds like a girl and he looks like he is 12 but he's talking about being in love with this girl. And yet I find myself singing his songs all day and "suggesting" my son bring the CD along with us in the car, cause it helps HIM of course.

10. One time when I was a Brownie I REALLY needed to use the bathroom and the leader wouldn't let me because we were going to do the closing song or ceremony or whatever it was called. I was the kind of kid that when I had to go, I HAD to go RIGHT away. But I was also the kind of kid that never wanted to make trouble and would never disobey. So I stood there, legs clenched, willing myself not to pee. Didn't work. I peed and it filled my shoe (ewwwww). But no one noticed - I had on dark tights but still, how did no one notice??? I had almost left the gym when the leader yelled for us to freeze and she demanded to know who had spilled water on the floor. Earlier in the evening a bunch of girls had been spitting water at each other after drinking from the fountain. Included in those girls were two that constantly made my life a misery. Because no one confessed it was assumed they were the culprits and they were made to clean it up. Double EWWWWW. I am SOOOOO SORRY! I still feel bad about that!

There so 10 honest things that you now probably wish you didn't know about me :-)

And now I am supposed to bestow this award on other bloggers:

1. Longtime childhood friend and fellow blogger MundaneMomma at Moments of Clarity

2. Mommy Dearest at Quirk Factor. She might kick my ass for loading this on her but I REALLY want to see what she writes.

Happy Blogging People


  1. I love your "random things"! Thank you eversokindly for the award, and *muahaha* I accept the challenge. It may just have to wait 'til the weekend- I'm an "at work blogger" blogger usually, and I'm moving offices today. Lol.

    I did that pee thing, too, once. Only I was in seventh grade and I had asked twice and the teacher said no and so by the time I finally had the guts to ignore her and RUN....I couldn't get the belt undone on my pants and yeppers...Luckily the girl who always wore dresses even in winter, also wore jogging pants under the dress. She lent me those, we told the teacher I had had a tummy ache and my pants were too tight, and I hoped beyond hope her parents didn't hit her for not having pants on when she got home.
    Oh and it happened in grade one when the teacher made me hand out the Christmas cookies and didn't believe I had to pee. Guess who NEVER says "Not now!" to her kids when they say "I have to pee?" ;) lesson learned!!! And I eat the whole pie too....just I warm it to lukewarm. Cold hurts teeth.
