Honestly......for me!

Michelle, over at The Truth as I Know It has honoured me with this 'Honest Scrap' award because, as Michelle says it, "he smacks of honesty". To say that this was unexpected would be a gross understatement. I actually didn't even notice it right off but when I did, it honestly made me blush. I have only been blogging a relatively short time but have done my best to be forthright in writing about the things that have or do affect me. So yes, it is a big deal to receive this award especially from this talented woman who bravely and honestly bares her soul thru her words, her actions, her poetry and her amazing and colourful Art Work. Michelle is a most deserving recipient of this award and I am proud that this lady blesses my blog with her presence and has passed this honour on to me. (((xxxxx))) :) Thank you Michelle!

The rules of this award are:

1. You must brag about the award.
2. You must include the name of the blogger who bestowed the award on you and link back to the blogger.
3. You must choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
4. Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog
5. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself.

So, without getting carried away, my 10 things are listed below. As for passing it on to another 7 deserving Bloggers, that will take me a day or so. I have some ideas but need to do some research.

1) I wish I drove a James Bond style car, complete with sidewinder missiles and full metal jacket machine gun rounds to take care of the ass wipes who think the signal mechanism on their car is optional and a dandy place to store rubber bands.

2) Sometimes I say what I'm thinking instead of thinking about what I'm saying. (I'm working on that.)

3) I do not hide my emotions well at all. (One friend describes my angry look as, "The Death Look". (That explains buddy in the grocery store.)

4) I loved being in love.

5) I miss being in love.

6) Tried to end it all when I was about 30 and have the scars to prove it.

7) Lost too many years feeling sorry for myself. (Too be fair to myself, I didn't know any better.)

8) I envy some of the younger people I know who figured things out early. (But it makes me happy to know they did.)

9) I have absolutely no problem turning my back on ANYBODY who F%#&S me over. This includes family. (Maybe some future stuff there)

10) I am extremely happy to have met some beautiful people here in Blog Land. You have allowed me an opportunity to share a part of me without being judgemental. And to those who have judged me, thank you for doing so quietly.

You are very welcome Michelle, they are deserved. Interesting about those 10 things. Now, as for that sir part, to borrow a line from the movie, 'Roadhouse';

"Calling me sir is like putting an elevator in an outhouse, it just don't belong."

Thanks Audrey, I was hoping to sneak that one in and hope nobody would notice. I guess I was being a little too honest.

Okay Natalie, such as?
