Honest Scrap Award

Mom2spiritedboy at Spirited Blessings tagged me for this award- thank you, thank you, thank you! At least someone still loves me...

I present you with... oh wait. I need to post Teh Rulz first. *sigh* alright.

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 10 honest things about yourself.

Got it? Let's proceed.

10 honest things about me. Well, I'm going to bite on mom2spirited boy and list 10 random (but honest) things.

1- I became peeved that I couldn't just copy and paste Teh Rulz from mom2spiritedboy's blog. I had to actually type them out.

2- I am a natural born cynic (hey- the world needs us too!). Which also makes me a great "devil's advocate" to bounce stuff off of.

3- When I was about 2 or 3 years old, I was pretending to be a surgeon, so I stuck a pair of tweezers into an electrical outlet. Big *boom*, burned my hands- parents had to call the fire dept and everything.

4- I have a love for books. Like serious love for books. I will probably never own a Kindle because part of the whole reading experience for me, is the feel of the book itself.

5- Although I make up my own funkilated words and end sentences in prepositions, I really am a spelling and grammar junkie. It irritates the hell out of me when I see things like "alot" and "could of". In 6th grade, I won the school spelling bee, beating out the 7th and 8th graders. I went on to the State spelling bee, where I lost out to the word "afoul".

6- I have an extreme fear of public speaking. Extreme. Think social phobia. Which is one reason I lost out on the word "afoul". I took a college class in Sign Language when I was in high school- I skipped the final exam because we had to Sign in front of the class.

7- I tend to get into craptastic relationships because I have the bird with the broken wing syndrome.

8- I originally wanted to be a veterinarian. Somewhere down the road, I switched to wanting to be a speech pathologist. I started college with an OT major, toyed with the idea of switching to Linguistics, and eventually graduated with a Bachelors in Sign Language Studies. I wish I would have taken the chance on linguistics, although my dream job would be as an advocate.

9- If I have a semi-full bladder, I pee when I sneeze. Thanks, Rylan.

10- I busted out my 2 front teeth in high school, trying to show off my diving skills. Smacked my face on the bottom of the swimming pool. Was mortified. They're bonded, but I still can't drink red wine or bite into an apple.

11- I have 6 tattoos and 10 piercings. I married my tattoo artist (Jaysen's father) he got me into doing body piercings. I was a professional piercer for almost 10 years. I wished I could have done it full time, but there's no insurance.

12- I'm adopted, and I'm proud of it. I have the most wonderful parents. Love you Moppi and Peepa! It does irritate me when people ask me who my parents are after I've told them Moppi and Peepa, and they say real slowly "nooo... your real parents", or argue with me that my sister is actually my "step" sister.'re just a moron.

13- My favorite number is 13.

So there you go. Sorry they're not as interesting as maybe you were expecting, but I'm really quite boring. Just apparently did a lot of stupid shiz in high school. Haha.

And... I tag...

LOVE your random list. And it wouldn't just let you copy the rules off my post? Weird. Then again I am computer illiterate.

Now you have me wondering if I have used "alot" throughout my blog. I say it alot so maybe I have. hmmmmm. off to look.

I can run (click) fast so I am not tagged. However, your self-revelations have captivated me to forever reading your blog. ;)

I share one of your honest things - but will not tell which one!

Okay, Barbara- but since you are running away AND not telling which "honest thing" you share, I am forced to come to my own assumptions. I am assuming that you too, have multiple tattoos and piercings. ;)

Good try, m~d! You.will.never.know.

Assumptions can get you into (more) trouble, you know? Barbara
