Honest Scrap

I got another award!!! I am ALWAYS shocked when someone likes what I write enough to honor me.

Adriana at From KS to PA bestowed me with the Honest Scrap Award. I am just starting to read her but I really like what I have read so far.

The rules: 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 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

10 Honest Things About My Self

  1. I smile to myself when I read something funny or heartwarming. I was doing that today while reading New Moon and my oldest monkey asked me while I was smiling. Yes, I'm a dork.
  2. I love to watch crap/teenage TV. The Hills, The City, One Tree Hill, The Girls Next Door. I even TIVO 2 shows at once so that I don't miss anything. Yes I'm a dork.
  3. I have been on The Today Show - for coupon clipping. Yes I'm a dork.
  4. I have this overwhelming need to have people like me. It bothers me when someone doesn't like me and I need to get to the bottom of why it is that they don't like me. Usually I them try to make them like me. But when I realize it's for a stupid reason, one that outs the person as an idiot, I get quickly over it and stop caring. Yes I'm a dork.
  5. I know I am not fat, but I am constantly struggling to loose those last 5 lbs. Yes I'm a dork.
  6. I love my monkeys more than anything but sometimes (more often than I care to admit) I want to lock myself in my room and not come out. Yes I'm a dork.
  7. I am really getting in to The Twillight Series. I'm on book 2 and really enjoy the characters. Yes I'm a dork.
  8. After 6 years of regular exercise, I still have to psyche myself up to go to the gym. Yes I'm a dork.
  9. One of my favorite movies is White Girls. I don't know why but it CRACKS me up. Yes I'm a dork.
  10. Like Adriana, I also have an estranged sibling. I was just thinking about her today as it is my niece's 18th Birthday. I was so closed to my niece and nephew for the first 10 years of their lives. And now, I can't even call them as it is against my sisters wishes. We have spoke once in the last 5 years - and that was one conversation about my father's sudden blindness. Yes I'm a dork (and sad and mad).

Julia - you're so great. And I like you. I think I really do. And if it was ever in question, the fact that you were on the Today Show for coupon clipping makes me REALLY like you! :-)
Thanks for the award again - I am so behind on everything blog-related but I'm gonna try and do the honest scrap one. I like it.

You are not a dork. Twilight series is basically amazing. If you're a dork, then there are approximately 48903458713297 other dorks to share in your dorkiness. Do not be ashamed of Stpehanie Meyer's obsessions.

They are perfectly healthy.

Dorks of the world unite!

I laughed aloud at the Today show one!

And I don't have TV, but I have all the crap/teenage movies (i.e., all the Bring It On movies, 10 Things I Hate About You, She's All That, even the Britney Spears one--Crossroads). I'm right there with ya in the dorkiness category!
