I got the Honest Crap, I mean Scrap Award!

Hey kids! Happy Wednesday to ya!

Um…I’ve got nothing remotely interesting to say. Just thought I’d pop in say hi.




Butterfly Girl bestowed upon me a wonderful award –


Isn’t it purty?

I’m supposed to tell you 10 things about myself, and then pass this award on to other bloggers, but since I’m short on time today, I’m going to give you permission to award yourself this…award (allow myself to introduce…myself – anyone?). So if you want it, it’s yours!

Okay, on to the TEN THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME (and probably won’t care about anyway):

1) I’ve never eaten crab legs or lobster. I’m more of a shrimp and scallop girl – I like my food to not have potentially deadly claws that could snap off a finger.

2) Brad Paisley’s music makes me swoon. He writes the best love songs.

3) When I was in college, my roommate and I used to walk for 45 minutes every day – we were like the USPS, it didn’t matter how hot or cold it was outside, when 5 o’clock came – we were hitting the pavement. We were also tiny and toned!

4) I used to be a punk. In junior high, my bff Kristy and I thought we were Punk. We had spiky hair and wore black a lot. I grew out of that phase before high school, but Kristy wanted to keep “punkin out”. We grew apart after that. Sad.

5) I met my husband because he was holding a dog. If it weren’t for that dog, we might have never met.

6) I have a family member who is going to be on TV next year, but I’m not supposed to talk about it. Dangit!!

7) I have an unnatural fear of crunchy bugs. Spiders and snakes don’t bother me (much), but you put a beetle in front of me and you will see a grown woman throw a hissy fit (it ain’t pretty).

8) One of the best conversations I’ve ever had with my mom was when I spent an entire evening asking her about all the different decades she has lived through. She was a teenager in the 50’s, a new mom in the 60’s, a working mom during the women’s movement of the 70’s, and the mom of a teenager in the 80’s. It was really interesting to talk about.

9) If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would quit my job and become a writer. Or a stand up comedian. Or Oprah.

10) A couple of years ago, I had a friend who confided in me that she and her husband were swingers. My others friends think she was trying to “recruit” my husband and I. I didn’t stick around long enough to find out – I cut off contact with her after that conversation because, um… AWKWARD!

Okay that was a really random list, but it was all I could come up with on the fly. Remember, if you want the award, have it! I’ll share my Honest Scrap with anyone who wants it! 🙂

  1. FUN!!!!

    I went thru the punk phase…parts of me still are!

    you really SHOULD try crab legs at least ONCE…did anyone tell you you DON’T have to eat the hard outer shell???


    I think it’s so cool you had that kind of conversation with your Mom…you’ll remember that forever!

    your post was fun!!!

  2. Cool list… my mom was the same era. I was fascinated by the poodle skirt thing. The swinger comment must’ve been VERY awkward. You need a good comeback for that. “I think my husband, the pastor, is trying to get me on the phone…”

  3. my inner punk is still alive and well, just a little more hidden 😉

    i’ve had friends have the swinger conversation with me. one set wouldn’t take no for an answer, we dropped them. the other are good friends we’ve had for 12 years, they moved far away, we went to visit them, and they told us and ‘suggested’ but we declined. we will probably continue to see them, they seem respectful of our space.

  4. THAT was a fun list! Of course I have a few comments…
    #5–awe, I love that. Maybe I would be married if I had ever met a man holding a dog. Oh wait. I met lots of men holding dogs. They were all gay. (too much time spend hanging around dog shows.)

    #6–ooh, what a teaser. Does the show rhyme with Biggest Boozer, or Prancing with the Cars, or maybe Amerasian Midol? Cmon, give us a hint!

    #7–yuck. Crunchy bugs. But spiders out-gross me. They are crunchy AND scary.

    #10–….nope. I’d better not go there… Glad you didn’t either But wouldn’t that have been a shocker if that had just casually been listed as ten things we didn’t know about you.

  5. I am laughing so hard at number 10 – because vileman was a swinger as I found out with the discovery paperwork in our divorce. He preferred to solo his way with the swingers – eeew – TMI! Sorry.

    I know the Biggest Loser has a couple of Okies on this year and the spring season is probably filming now (same for Survior) so my guess for #6 is . . . what show will not include Paula Abdul?

    If I won the lottery – I think I would try writing too. When I was pregnant with 6, I would entertain the Friday afternoon crew at work with my witty-isms – they all said I should be a comedian. Of course, I haven’t been too funny
