No, no Thank YOU!

Scrap means left over, fragments, discarded material. Many times truth and honesty are discarded material, considered fragments and left over. People like us need to tell it like it is, and let the scraps fall where they will.

Jill from Jillie Side Up awarded me with the Honest Scrap award. Thank you so much, Jill!

This is how it works:
  1. Thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it.
  2. Share "10 Honest Things" about yourself.
  3. Present this award to 7 others who blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.
  4. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded Honest Scrap and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.
Them's the rules.

So, hm. Ten honest

10. I am not very good at lying.
9. I am pretty good at avoiding talking about things which I feel like I have to lie about for my own sanity though.
8. For example, my family has no idea that a person named Inspector Climate exists (which let's face it is for the best, because if that's how I introduced him they'd be all, "you're dating a superhero?" To which I'd have to say, "Yes").
7. The reason I haven't told them is because I never want to have that conversation with my family where I tell them that the boy I've been seeing and I broke up.
6. Not that I am planning on NOT being with Inspector Climate...
5. I have a feeling I am going to have to tell them parents that is. Because the guilt of NOT telling them will eat me alive.
4. I get totally freaked out when a number I don't recognise calls me...Who are you? What did they want? Why call me at 1 am? IS SOMETHING WRONG? HELP ME HELP YOU.
3. I hate doing laundry, but I love folding laundry...Hire me JCrew!?
2. I love mustard...I hate Mayonnaise. I am not sure if that is honesty or just over sharing?
1. I did this backwards hoping that I'd come up with the number one honest thing about me or something...but I haven't. So, you're left with this: if you were to send me a postcard, I'd hang it on my wall with photos of my family, my friends, and a drawing that my nephew drew me on the back of a birthday card...More importantly, I'd smile every time I looked at it. This is NOT a ploy to get you to send me postcards...I promise.

Who to award, who to award...

~~~Evolving Revolver She's an expat like me...Her blog is A-mah-zing. Note the cApitAl A.
~~~The Yellaphant This girl has me hooked! Plus she just got married and her blog oooooozes with LOVE.
~~~Megs Life Megs just ran a marathon...and ye gods if that doesn't earn a girl an award...I don't know what does?
~~~Ooof Jummy is honest and introspective, and I dig that, yo.
~~~Diary of Why From the moment I saw her profile picture (balancing a ball on one's head is impressive!) I knew hers was a blog I had to hit.
~~~bblove this isn't a blog that I read everyday, but I love it all the same.
~~~WittyLog This is a Canadian who lives in Australia and I kind of adore her and her blog. AND she has kitchen aid...ENVY. UPDATED: This was all a lie - I am not an honest person apparently, I just made up that she was Canadian in my head! She's Australian and I think we know how much I enjoy Austalians! However, she does still have a kitchen aid - and I still adore her and her blog.

Check these girls out - they are fab. And thanks to Jill, again!


  1. Thanks! After I get some more sleep I'll have to do this one. I'm still fairly new to the blog thing but I'll figure out how to link peoples blogs and all that :)

  2. Maybe if we lived on the same continent would could work something out about #3. I'll do the laundry I hate folding it.

  3. You're cute, kitten. I like mustard too. :-)

  4. Totally agree with #4. Also hate the "Number withheld". And also hate when they don't leave a message. You obviously want to speak to me, so why not leave a message so that I can call you back? Some people have no social etiquette, I tell you what.

  5. Nice work on the award.

  6. I'm so excited about Inspector Climate. Do you think he might be the One??

  7. Awwww! thank you! I will continue to share the love.

  8. Congratulations on the award and thanks for revealing those 10 things about yourself.

  9. Megs - you're welcome if you need any help figure out that the technical side, shoot me an email!

    Linlah - TOTALLY.

    Chris - ooh, what kind? I am partial to the spicy, seedy stuff.

    Sandy - Honestly, what is with that? It makes me so nervous.

    Matthew - Thank you!

    Selina - Hm, I don't know...I adore him though.

    Ev Rev - You're Welcome, you deserve it.

    Petty Witter - You're Welcome! and Thank you!

  10. Hooray, you're awesome! PS, working on a new blog just for love/dating/sex/relationships ... can't wait to get it ready to show. Thanks for the shoutout :)

  11. Diary of Why - Yipppppeee indeed :) Have fun in Seattle!

    Bblove - no, you're awesome :) Sounds great - let me know when it is up :)

  12. I'm a crappy liar too and no one even realizes although I exhibit all the signs like: blinking, sweating, not making eye contact.. etc.

    Congrats on the blog award.

  13. YES, #4! I just keep looking at my phone until it stops ringing.
    Congrats on your award. Your ten things were fun. Now I know whom to call when I do the laundry :)

  14. Sara - I know right! my eyes get all shifty and I get all quiet. and no one seems to pick up the signs until i am all "ugh, that was a lie!!! I am sorry!" oy.

    DDG - Totally, I got your back when it comes to laundry - just make sure I have your phone number first :)
