Honest Scrap Award & 10 things about me

I received the same award from three people. That's a record! :) I want to thank each of them for thinking of me. Lady Banana, Momma Mia, Mea Culpa and WIXY's Gone Bananas

The honorees of this award are to:

A) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!

B) pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

10 honest things about me.

1) I've composed music since the age of 13. The music comes to me from out of the blue. I can even be on the toilet. If I don't have a tape recorder with me, I forget the song. Most of it is Gospel.

2) I have poor self discipline, but can be driven by the heart.

3) When I was young I had a crush on the leading ladies in soap operas. Looking back I realize it was a sign that I was gay. I still have a crush on Dr. Marlena Evans of "Days."

4) I took care of my mother during the last year of her life, and was with her when she died. It's one of the few things that I'm proud of.

5) Sometimes I wash my hands so much that my hand towel is soaking wet. I think it's because I'm a CNA. I don't think I'm OCD. I don't like getting COD's. It POs me.

6) I have a thing for female Libra's.... (ok Libra's reading this, you can stop smiling now.)

7) I have no sense if direction. Put me in the back yard, spin me around, and I may not be able to find my own house, ah, apartment.

8) I equate suicide with depression, and keep forget that I could be depressed even though I don't feel like putting a gun to my head. I forget that often.

9) I don't have children, that I know of.

10) I don't like the concept of time. Why is it that I can walk forward and backwards in space, but we can't go forward & backwards in time? Does that bother anyone else? Time should be like my VCR or DVD. Time is a bad idea. Everything is so final here on earth.

I pass this Award on to....

Thank you. That was really interesting. Marlena hey, she has never aged ever has she? Nursing your mother is a wonderful thing although tough. I help my mother care for my father. I have no sense of direction either.

Who me? I'm not smiling? Why would that make this female libra smile? hehehe

Thanks for the award, Sweetie!

You are one of the two blogs I've been to today. I'm preparing for an accountant meeting on Friday. Shit that's soon! So I haven't time to play right now, but I might in a week or so!

Thanks so much for thinking of me!

XOXO...and I'm not smiling! ;)

Thanks Awake!! And I loved your list. I'm in awe of you composing music! I used to play clarinet in the school band, but there's no way I could ever WRITE music. Big difference between reading someone else's notes and actually composing them yourself. That's wonderful!

And I can't even imagine caring for your mom that whole year. Helping out my in-laws and my FIL in the nursing home is REALLY taking its toll on both me and my husband, and the nursing home folks are doing the bulk of the work for us!

Giggle Pixie,

When I was at Bible college I use to sing & play guitar, playing my songs. Now I have no idea how I could have gotten up in front of so many people.

Awake In Rochester said...


Well, I know of one Capricorn who is very special to me. ;)

Amias said...

Awake In Rochester said...
