Honestly, I'm Honored....


I'm super excited to have received The Honest Scrap Award from Rachel @ When Does Tragedy Arrive? Although I have received this award before, it's just a special this time around - maybe even better because the icon actually fits on my sidebar this time. If you haven't stopped by her blog, be sure to visit Rachel if for no other reason than she loves "The Duke"... John Wayne.

In case you weren't around when I received the first award, here are the rules and my answers.

The Rules

1. “The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared!

2. The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows.

3. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.

4. Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award.

5. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.


10 Things

There are a few people that probably already know some of these things, but they don’t read my blog, so I don't think I’m not breaking any rules.

  • I don’t like ice cream and rarely eat sweets or chocolate.
  • I get bored easily at work and need to be continuously challenged. I love change.
  • I live in Canada and despise cold weather, so I’m pretty miserable from November until March.
  • I’m a certified Rescue Diver and Divemaster.
  • I can’t stand the sound of someone clipping their fingernails or toenails. That is the most disgusting sound!
  • I was expelled from school for one day in Grade 7 because I was caught in a brawl with a boy. The boy was a bully and I was winning, so that should have counted for something, but it didn’t.
  • With the exception of corn, I won’t eat any cooked vegetables.
  • I was fortunate enough to have met Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Kevin Spacey, Eric McCormack and Sean Hayes when I worked for the Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada.
  • I don’t like other people’s feet touching my feet, so playing footsies is something I just can’t bring myself to do.
  • As a child, I wanted to live on Gilligan’s Island. Wait, I still do…

Please understand that I love every blog that I follow, but you see I think I’m being monitored by the internet Nazis and therefore don’t have the time while I’m here @ work to pass this award along to ten other bloggers, so if you feel you are worthy (which of course you are), grab it for yourself and if you do, please let me know so I can read about your dirty little secrets (whew, that was a long sentence).

I hate having people touch my feet in any way!

Gilligan's island is a definite fantasy!

Don't sweat the no blog reading! I think we all need to relax a little

It was fun to read your list!

I agree with the sweets thing - if I am craving something, it is usually a salty snack like popcorn or chips or something even worse like spinach artichoke dip.

I also agree with the nail clipping thing - although I have to clip my own at times. It was so gross - at my old job, there was this guy that would clip his nails at work all the time! Yuck! What's worse is that we worked in a call center so people on the phones could hear it. Ewwww! :)

I had in school suspension in 7th grade for writing a mean note to a girl - not quite expulsion but my parents were sooooo mad at me!

Also, I have never gone scuba diving - just snorkeling, but I love water and swimming and would love to try! I was on swim team growing up and was a lifeguard for a while so this would be up my alley!

I don't have a whole lot of interesting stuff about my life but it is fun to read about others like you!
