My First Award...

Gingerjar gave me the Honest Scrap Award. The rules for the Honest Scrap award -

The honorees are to:

(a)First, list 10 honest things about yourself and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep...

(b)Pass the award on to 7 people you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap award.

Simple, right? I don't think so... but here goes...

1. I'm not one to be dishonest, but I also don't like saying anything that might hurt someone. So don't ask my opinion if you don't want to know.

2. If anyone ever came to my home on a surprise visit, my mom would roll over in her grave because usually it is cluttered with piles of magazines and catalogs, etc. that I like to double check or re-read before I give up and get rid of them. Fortunately for me, but unfortunately for the looks of the house, I'm not the only one around here that has piles... (not the medical kind!)

3. I am a HUGE procrastinator, unless it is something I really want to do. Then it gets done pretty quick.

4. The older I get the more picky I am about being late if I'm committed to being somewhere. This has been a radical change in my life.

5. I hate to get started on house cleaning, but once I get started, stay-the-hell-out-of-my-way, and I don't like to half-ass clean.

6. My temper and my anxiety level have both increased dramatically the last several years... and I hate that about myself.

7. I love to create jewelry, to draw, to paint, to do stained glass work and I have things in all those categories that I've started and not finished...for years.

8. There is one pointillism ink drawing that I feel if I ever finish it I will be done with my life. So it will probably never be finished. And I have no idea why I feel that way.

9. My needs are simple, but my wants are way more than I have money or energy for... and sometimes that gets really difficult for me to cope with.

10. I love doing things for other people, but sometimes I resent having to do other things for people... if that makes any sense.

Whew... That was not an easy task, but I will have to say it is somewhat cathartic... Gives me a glimpse into why a person would write an autobiography.

Okay... for 7 folks that I'm passing this award on to:

Twisted Fencepost

Silence Is Broken


My New Thing To Do

Cowboys, Kids and Sunsets

The Bliss Of It All

Shay's Mom

Now I have a question for all of my adoring fans... Someone told me that when you (or me), as a blogger, reaches 100 posts, that you are supposed to write 100 things about yourself and your world. Sort of an unwritten blog rule thing. Did I miss that in the unwritten blogging rules?

I knew all of you would be the best people I could ask! Thanks.

I just kicked the cans...so ya can't tag me...hehehe

Twisted Fencepost said...

Oh, well, thanks for the award. This one is gonna be hard. I'm not so sure anyone wants to know any "HONEST" facts about me. I'll think on it.
And if I come up with enough Honest Scrap, I post it. But just remember, "you asked for it". tee hee

Twisted Fencepost said...

Oh forgot to tell you, I didn't get that memo either. So I'm past 200 and I still haven't posted the first 100. They haven't kicked me out of the blogoshpere. YET!

Laura ~Peach~ said...

Love n hugs Laura

Love your honest scrap reveal. You sound like a take-it-or-leave it kind a gal. I like people who are straight-up. Drop on by anytime. I'm writing about gophers attached to body parts over there.

jojo said...

never got the 100 memo either...that's just fine cause i'm sure i'd still be at it. Love your award and your answers. We have a lot in common...not sure that's a good or bad thing..;)

Staci said...

Hey, thanks for the award! I'm not sure about the "100 things" but I'm not really sure that I can come up with enough for Honest Scrap, but I'll give it the old college try. Speaking of college, I do go to a few b-ball games down at the LNC. Equally men's and women's, I guess - are you going to make it to the Big XII tourney at the Ford/Cox?

Robynn's Ravings said...

Hi Reddirt!

Hey, thanks for stopping by and for your kind words. And I look forward to reading your possum story. As far as the 100 things I hadn't heard that (maybe because I'm not there yet) but boy, that might be more than I want anyone to know! Ya know? Might have to lie. Just THINK of the things we could come up with!

Nola said...

Well, I am not sure if it is a rule....but I would LOVE to read a post from you listing 100 things....please, please do it!!!

Mary Ellen said...

Your 10 things are interesting, so I'm sure your 100 would be too, however - I've never seen that suggestion (or rule). Of course, I'm so new that I'm sure I do everything wrong. Actually, I think with your blog, you should do EXACTLY what YOU want to do, and the hell with any darn rules.

One hundred things sounds like a lot...if it is a rule, I better quit when I get to 99.

I'm not a rule follower. Sorry, wish I could be more helpful but I'd probably only steer you wrong thru cyberspace!

darsden said...

Hey Helen, Pat got her 1000 win last night! whewhew

Train Wreck said...

Oh thanks my friend! You are too sweet! I loved reading your Scrap! And I don't think you have to post your 100 things unless you want to? But I never was one to "follow" the rules...
