The Honest Scrap


Rena was kind of enough to nominate Jacqui's Room for the Honest Scrap, an award for telling it like it is. Which I fear is a euphemism for "unedited oversharing," but we take our kudos where we can get them around here.

This time, I did not spend all night attempting to trace the origins of the award. But that is only because I spent all night trying to download a printer driver. We will have to trust that the Honest Scrap award did not originate somewhere terrible.

I am to post 10 honest things about myself and then pass the award on to seven other blogs who tell it like it is. This is hard; I mean, you already know my house is in chaos and I'm a big dork. But I'll try.

10. Sometimes I make inappropriate jokes to myself and laugh out loud. I'm doing it right now. Imagine all the horrible things I could write on this list. Heh heh.

9. I listen to loud music that is not appropriate to share here. Sometimes I listen to my iPod and giggle at the vast space between how I look and how it sounds in my head.

8. It is possible I have a small addiction to the internet.

7. Someday I really, really, really, want to direct another play.

6. When my sister and I get going, I think we're the funniest people on earth.

5. I have never broken a single bone in my body.

4. I am so superstitious that I almost didn't write #5 and I will have to knock on wood every time I read it.

3. Which I will do a million times, because I obsessively read my own blog posts before I publish them.Link
2. I have a monster ego. Seriously. Gigantic. But somehow I'm also always convinced everyone hates me.

1. I don't deserve this award. I am actually a great liar. It's true. Don't tell.

And to pass it on. I can't think of seven. I always try to pick blogs I think you may not have seen, so I'm limited, but check out:

Holy Guacamole, where T writes my secret fears,
Colorado Writer, who writes the ups and downs of writing without hiding anything, and
Resident Alien, who is not afraid to explore and share her thoughts on a variety of topics.

Jacqui,
I must confess that I read all three blogs you recommended. You are still the best. So my question to you is: Did you really send us the "best" blogs? Or was that an attempt to make yours look even better?
Snort, chuckle. Giggle.

Jacqui - your list is so similar to mine that I think we must be blogging twins or something! The only thing I don't want to do is 7 and about number 6, I have to say that I am a lot funnier than my sister. But that goes along with my humongous ego.

And I always make inappropriate jokes to myself and laugh all by myself. I am so funny I constantly crack myself up and when others don't laugh I laugh even harder.

Wow, coach -- we have 10, 9, 8, 5, 4 and sometimes 2 (I oscillate wildly between supreme cerebrum and common parasite) in common.

I love #6...because it reminds me of when I'm with my Sis...

Our family calls us Lucy and Ethel when we get together...grin..

Great list!

Rena said...

This particular meme thing has been really interesting. It's cool to see some of the things people thought of to share.

Thanks Jacqui!

T said...

Thanks for the shout out!
I love your list and wish I could use some..especially 10 and 4!
What a loaded request/challenge.

Stay tuned....

Colorado Writer said...

Nice list.

Oh, and thanks for telling me to post, thereby distracting me from the 101 things I am doing OFF the net today.

Now, I will blog.

:)
You're the bomb.

Jacqui said...

Thanks, all. Sorry I didn't comment back much (see iPhone problem...).

Sharon, will pay you next time I see you :)

Yay -- THANK you! This really made my day! My daughter helped me paste this into my blog last night, and she happened to notice that I'd messed up other things and neglected to post other bits, so so you did me a good turn there!

Ditto for me on 10, 9, 5, 4, 3, and 1 -- definitely 1. And I once might have gone along with 2 as well, but now I'm absolutely perfect (until everyone starts going against me, as they do).
