Honest Scrap Award

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Last week was a memorable week! First, Ron over at Vent asked me to be his very first interview. Thanks, Ron!

Then, Jessi at Jessi, Bob and the Monsters bestowed upon me The Honest Scrap Award. Thanks, Jessi!

Here are the rules:

1. “The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared!

2. The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows.

3. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.

Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award.

5. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.

This is tough since I've probably revealed most of my deep dark secrets on this blog already but if you don't have time to go back and find them, here they are:

1. I hate parties. This always surprises people because I'm perceived as outgoing and friendly but I would really rather be living in a van down by the river.

I hate the opera. And the ballet. I feign interest to seem cultured but I would prefer the company of teenagers at opening night of a horror movie.

3. I hate my feet. My sister gave me a complex about them when I was a teenager. "Oh my God! Your feet are SO gross." I only started wearing open toed shoes about 5 years ago. And only if just the tips of my toes show. You'll never see me in flip flops. Too much ugly foot showing.

I would love to travel across the country in an RV and visit every podunk town I couldn't find on a map. Ever see Lost in America?

5. I can't do math in my head. At all. Not even basic multiplication tables.

6. I can't swim. My mother sent me to lessons year after year but she got tired of hiding in embarassment behind the big tree outside the pool and finally gave up.

7. I check for spelling errors in everything I read. Books, magazines, brochures, menus. I get really bent when I find one.

8. I'm a night owl forced to live an early bird's existence. I walk into the office all perky and smiley in the morning but inside I'm dying a little bit each day.

9. I watch Intervention to feel better about myself.

10. I always pick up a penny when I see one on the ground. I think it's a sin to leave money in the street.

You know I never follow the rules, which I guess could be number 11, so here are the 3 instead of 10 people I choose to pass this along to.

But, dear award recipients, you all have to pick 10 people. Do as I say, not as I do.

Because I said so, that's why.

C'mon guys, inquiring minds want to know:

**Funny Girl Goes Blog

**47 and Starting Over


  1. Your feet aren't gross! Are they? You know, I've never seen them...nver thought of that before.

    And I see that passing the award onto Carlos you are forcing him back into the blog thing. Well done.

    Congrats on your award! It's been quite a week so far, and it's only Wednesday!

  2. if we go by #'s 1 - 7 then we are separated at birth
    I kept reading and laughing and saying Yes!

  3. Congrats, sweetie! An award and an interview in one week....you are one HOT patootie!
    So, I'm guessing a pool party...where they play opera...which begins at 6am...where you need to bring a certain recipe, but "multiply it by 3 so there's enuogh"...would not be to your liking?
    I guess not.

  4. Congrats on your award, Chrissy!

    I've seen this one on a few blogs and really enjoy reading the 10 things that no one else knows about!!!

    OMG...I don't like parties either. So many people think I'm Mr. Social Butterfly and I'm not. I much prefer getting together with one or to people and just chilling with a glass of wine and a scary movie.

    And you so welcome, my friend! Having you as my first interview was the BEST experience. You made it so easy for me - so thank YOU!

  5. I cant stand parties either. Im so damn socially awkward it isnt funny. I'd much rather be alone!!!

    My friend Lani only touches her feet to wash them. When she puts lotion on them she just squeezes some on then rubs her feet together. Shes claims that she "doesnt know where theyve been" hee hee.

    I swim like a rock...

  6. Imagine the accomplishment you'd feel doing math in your head while swimming!
    I'll get back to you on this honest business.

  7. @F8hasit,
    See?? There's a reason you've never seen them.
    Yes, I like to mess with him.

    Funny! I'm probably the only one who does #9. Well, and admits it.

    Thanks! And no, I would have to respectfully decline..

    Isn't that funny? I would have thought that you liked parties, too!

    You are so welcome. It was my pleasure.

  8. @JW.BW,

    I saw that on your blog and I laughed out loud about how your regressing socially.

    Lani sounds worse than me!


    I would likely drown.

    Just trying to keep you busy.


  9. Thanks, Chrissy....Now 10 things no one knows about me. Hmmmmm

  10. You're very welcome. I'm waiting... :-)


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
