What do you think this means?

I won the Honest Scrap Award. I prefer to read it as Honest (s)Crap. My friend Valerie (who has a private blog but allows me to read it) gave it to me. Thanks Valerie!!!

So the punishment, I mean reward is that you GET to tell 10 honest things about yourself and pass the award on to 10 people. I don’t even know 10 people. But I’ll play along!

10 Things

1) There are about 50+ blogs I follow or check on but I never comment. I guess I’m a stalker. Maybe I will present some of those people with this little award………..and then they will know I’m a reader!

2) My mother does not know that I have a blog. Hey, I think I’ll send her an email with a link in it and then she will know.

So far this is shaping up to be QUITE REVEALING!

3) I don’t like chocolate… truffles, chocolate ice cream, brownies etc. I will eat chocolate cake as long as it is a light, sweet chocolate, nothing bitter. I will eat See’s candy but not more than one piece in a sitting.

4) When I am the only one at home, I prefer SILENCE. Well, actually, I prefer silence at all times! ;) I never turn the TV or radio on for background noise. NEVER. When I am in the car alone, I CRANK the music.

5) I think it would be fun to work for the Church Educational System and teach seminary full time. I guess I’m a glutton for punishment! Ooooo Oooooo Can that count as two?

6) Believe it or not, I am not a very social person. I’m pretty solitary. Since I am so quiet (I won’t go so far as to say I am shy), I am sometimes misunderstood and people think I’m aloof or stuck up. I’m also honest, direct and not gushy. So what you see is what you get.

7) My favorite day of the week is Thursday. Thursday means the next day is Friday and it’s the weekend. Anticipating the weekend is almost better than the weekend. Thursday night is a big date night for us.

8) I LOVE watching lacrosse. Seriously, any sport where the helmet is covered with death warnings is a sport for me! (to watch). I could watch game after game after game…like most people watch American Idol or Thursday night TV. And it’s good that I like it because I will be watching 50 games in the next 8 weeks.

9) I HATE changing clothes. I don’t like it because it takes too much time to stand in the closet and dream up another costume. It’s taxing mentally and physically! It is exhausting and a waste of time to take everything off AND put it away AND put on another outfit. So, a lot of days, I just stay in the dress and heels I wore to seminary…..not practical but easier.

10) And speaking of HONEST - here’s something really revealing (and already repented of). When I was in college, I went through a rebellious stage. Somehow, I didn’t appreciate all the inane rules they had in the dorms. So I STOLE! Yep, I stole a cafeteria tray and used it as a sled. I stole a giant bowl of chips from the cafeteria. I later returned the bowl and $2 for the chips. I stole a bike from the bike rack and went joyriding. But I returned it to its exact location an hour later. I also stole a piece of pie from the cafeteria….although it was all you can eat and the cafeteria lady saw me. But it was Sunday and there was a STUPID sign that said, “Please take only one piece of pie.” I took two. Is that really stealing or more like rule breaking?
And now...........drumroll..........I would like to pass the Honest Scrap award to:
Diane at Life is a Pitch Life is a Pitch (you know...a soccer field) . She's religious about posting.
Debilyn at Definitely Debilyn because she's been out of town and needs something to do when she gets back!
Tricia at a private blog because I just like her. She's cool
Amy at Happy Thought Indeed! because just seeing the name of her blog makes me smile....seriously!

No Chocolate? Gina! What am I going to do with you? Tsk, Tsk. ;) Alright, you can still be my friend. Thanks for playing along! :)

Gina! WOW....Thanks! I've never won a blog award before. And I haven't blogged since Monday night, so I guess this gives me something to do. Thanks for the honor. Your pretty cool. I liked reading your 10 things!

Huh, I so thought we were twins in so many ways. But no chocolate? I think our twin-ness has now ended.

Great ten things. 10 was funny, I never would have guessed you were a 'bad' girl!

And for fun your word verification told me to enter the word 'nicer' how funny is that?
