Honest Scrap Award


My very first award! That is, I got one I think back when I first started blogging, but I had no idea what that meant, so I'll count this as the first. I do, however, remember that my first ever blogging buddy Amy gave it to me, back in the a-few-months-ago day. Thanks Amy!

This award is from the Polka-Dotted Owl, who is a newer blogger buddy; one of the first people to ever comment on my blog who I hadn't either already known, or blogger-style-stalked and posted a comment first. So, thanks for letting me know that people in the internet abyss actually read my blog. PDO!

These are the rules for the award:

1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

Here are my chosen awardees:

1) Amy, of course.
2) GRITS
3) The Bradford Blog
4) SP
5) Elle
6) Katie (although I understand if you take forever to repost; yay for being a new mom!)
7) A Southern Accent

And now, 10 honest things about myself:

1) I have an unhealthy addiction to lip gloss. I think I cried when they discontinued Candy Kisses. Now I'm obsessed with this stuff. Oops, I think I need to re-apply right now...
2) I am at the same time impatient about being finished with school (hello Dr. C in June 2011) and paralyzingly terrified of not being a "student" anymore.
3) I don't look out the window nearly enough.
4) My favorite thing to make is chocolate chip cookies.
5) I sometimes feel guilty when I listen to/read world news because my life is so easy. Even more seldom, I get stuck in a thought loop of figuring out how luck works (more bad than good; like why my life is paradise compared to some, and vice-versa, when nothing was done to deserve it).
6) It makes me more responsible when I have to write things down.
7) I bought a book to record my (supposedly daily) meditations in, in November 2008. I've written 6 entries.
8) Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve T. (are others' relationships like that?)
9) I take some dirty satisfaction in the fact that I'm never really in one place for long. Years ago I asked my friend Amanda if it was hurtful the way I'm always there, then gone, with no warning. She said no, and that I was like Carmen San Diego. I think that started it.
10) I'm a dead-horse-beater. If there's ever anything wrong, I have to talk it. To. Death. (friends of mine who can confirm this, there's no need. :) Ok, you can if you want)
