HONEST SCRAP AWARD

My good friend, KM, awarded my blog with this awesome award: Honest Scrap Award.

First of all, THANKS, KM.  What a nice award.

I’ve been asked why I do my blog or what’s my blog for? Well, it’s just a piece of me. Sure, I’m a writer and many writers have blogs to promote just that, their writing. Sure, I’ll do that a little, but really, my blog is about having some fun, getting to know people, and letting people into my crazy world.

So, with this award, there come a few responsibilities…

A) First list 10 honest things about yourself – and make it honest (hence, the award ‘Honest Scrap’), even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 8 bloggers that you feel embody the role of the Honest Scrap. (This is an award only to display on your blog that everything you write on it is in truth, sincerity, and integrity.)

Ok, so, TEN honest things about me…..

1.  I hate coffee. Can’t stand the taste. I can detect the most miniscule amount in anything. But, I like the smell.

2.  I love tattoos. Yep. Have a couple myself. But I love hearing the stories behind what prompted someone to get a tattoo.

3.  I never really read for recreation much until April 2007. Yeah, I know, and you may ask, “BUT YOU’RE A WRITER?” **smile** Yeah, I didn’t plan to take a writer’s path in life, God opened some doors, and here I am…six novels written and reading like a maniac.

4.  Despite having a blog, facebook, twitter, etc……I’m really pretty illiterate when it comes to gadgets/computers. Like stereo hook ups to the TV…yeah, have NO desire how to do that stuff. I’d rather my sweet hubby sweep in and get it working so I can enjoy it.

5.  I’m addicted to malted milk balls. I’d eat them every single day if I wouldn’t gain a ton of weight. Oh, and not the Whoppers, the gourmet milk balls.

6.  I peel the crust off my sandwiches. Can’t stand the crust. Tastes like tree bark. Not that I’ve tasted that, mind you….

7.  I have my Masters Degree in Mental Health Therapy with a specialty in Adult Addiction. BUT, I only did that line of work for about 3.5 years. It was really difficult.

8.  I’m totally addicted to FaceBook and blogging. I love meeting all the people I’ve met on line. I hope to meet some or all in real life some day at a writers conference or something.

9.  I wish I could have gone further in my Inline Speed Skating career but trust God closed the door on that path for a reason. My human side, though, wishes I could have gone further.

10.  I am married to my best friend and soul mate. Married for over 12.5 years and I love him  now more than ever!

So, I’m to award this to eight other blogs.

  1. Thanks so much Lynn. Lot’s of wonderful, interesting things about you. Sorry it took so long for me to get to this. I’m falling behind on all my blogs! I’ll try to get this up this weekend. Blessings, Jan

  2. I too loved knowing more about you!! Can’t say I agree about the coffee or the tatoos–I love coffee but dislike tatoo’s—LOL. But, I too love malted milk balls. You mean they make gourmet ones???? Oh, my—-

    Also was interested in your inline skating experience. I used to roller skate – not quite the same thing – and I loved it! Was friends with a gal who actually had a career as a speed skater and I think she went to the Olympics or something. I know she did some kind of dance with—well, darned, it was an African American actor–Danny someone? She taught him some steps for a movie or something—LOL.

  3. You have tattoos? We’ll have to swap tattoo stories 🙂
    Great stuff, Lynn. I didn’t know until I was 35 that it was okay, as an adult, to cut the crusts off. . .so I just slid them into the trash when no one was looking LOL
    35 years old! 🙂
    Great writing, I’m a fan!

  4. Despite having a blog, facebook, twitter, etc……I’m really pretty illiterate when it comes to gadgets/computers. Like stereo hook ups to the TV…yeah, have NO desire how to do that stuff. I’d rather my sweet hubby sweep in and get it working so I can enjoy it.

    You are not alone. My husband used to hook up entire PA systems for concerts, but now he doesn’t have a clue how to turn on a computer.

    Unfortunately, in this day and age, those two worlds have kind of collided and you can barely do one without the other. Poor Dana…

I respond to comments, so leave me a note....
