The Honest Scrap Award

I really am so bad about these awards. I get them and I'm delighted. I save the award to my harddrive and then I get distracted. The life of me...constantly distracted. I could probably get diagnosed with adult ADD or something. Whoosh. Trying to just be honest. :)

So this is who nominated me for this award:

Sagi's Randomness
Escape Through the Pages
Extreme Reader 

Thanks a bunch you beautiful people you, I sooo appreciate it.
Here is whom I am spreading the love to:

Nominees (7):
Melissa @ My World
Jackie @ Book Whisperer
Tina @ TinasBookReviews
Jessica @ Jessica's Vision
Sandy @ Pirate Penguin
Lily @ Lily's Bookshelf
I ♥ Book Gossip

Here are the details:
Well, the Honest Scrap works like this. I will list 10 true things about myself and then tag 7 more blogs to go through the process. Here are my 10 trues:
  1. I live right side outside of New Orleans along the Mississippi River. I have a love/hate relationship with my town.
  2. I am very political - I have to bite my tongue from spouting off all the time. If I didn't have a book blog it would probably be a political rant blog
  3. I have never stepped foot in a public school - untill college. I stopped going to school with boys in the 8th grade. College was akward, I actually had to wear make-up to class!
  4. I curse like a sailor (or maybe an airmen - was in the USAF), I am constantly embarresing myself by dropping the F bomb. Yet, I use big words alot, so combindations of s*** and supercilious in a conversation
  5. Yet... because I read so much and try to use my words, I haven't heard them pronounced so I usually pronounce things wrong. Which cracks me up.
  6. I don't get embaressed easily
  7. I'm mad at my dog and cat right now because they both pooped on the floor yesterday
  8. I feel guilty because a vendor took me out to lunch today and we are probably going with her competitor.
  9. I don't know what to get my mother-in-law for christmas
  10. I have 5 tattoos - guess where??? Oh and BTW I didn't know what a tramp stamp was until about 5 years later. I wish someone would have told me something then.

Hilarious. Thank you for the award.... Get this I learn what a tramp stamp was from a 12 year old about three years ago. Is that not terrible, and I am only 27....

Jessilyn said...

ha .. that is hilarious I too didn't know what that was till i was 21 and I'm now 24 thanks so much for the award Rachy ;)

StephTheBookworm said...

I love your answers... the one about your dog and cat are hilarious. My dog is the same way, but my cats are generally good about that.

ExtremeReader said...

I have 3 tattoos myself and yes I have a tramp stamp. But in my defense I got it 14 years ago before it became known as such! I just got my last one a few months ago and I love all of them! Everyone always says you will regret those when you get old- well I am 36 and no regrets yet! You totally deserve this award!!! :)

Kudos to

#4- I curse like a lot too only I do not use big words like you, which makes me just plain potty mouth. LOL

#5 - tell me about it! one of our friend is a word and promounication geek of some sort and everytime I mispronounce something cracks up first then tell me how it's pronounced.

I love reading your post and funny and it's always truthful.

Amanda Leigh said...

Congrats on the award! And love your 10 truths!

Jenn (Books At Midnight) said...

Congrats!! And, lol, nice. I tend to use s*** quite often, but that's about it. And, wow, no public school until college? Sounds like a huge change.

Patti said...

Congratulations! Based on your schooling I'm guessing you grew up here and are not a transplant?

I'm bad about #5 so I usually don't say much (but I'm thinking it!).

Great list - totally cracked me up!

Melissa (My World) said...

These are great! I got a chuckle on pronouncing the words just a little off. Only because I do that all the time my self ~ even on words I do know I still say wrong. lol!

Thanks for the award I am working on coming up with 10 things. These are hard to do when you start thinking on it.

Juju at Tales of said...

I loved reading about you! Your answers sound allot like me.

I think I'm going to make it my New Year's resolution to stop cursing.
(Never mind that it's the same resolution as last years0 ;)

pirate penguin said...

Thank you for the award! :) I'm with Juju-reading about your ten truths were fun. <3

Alyssa Kirk @ Teens Read and Write said...

Congrats to you and your nominees. Great choices! I too had fun reading your honest things. So glad you picked book blogging. We would have missed you!

I'm curious about what your tattoos are of. And, I was wondering about the tramp stamp...I'm clueless. What is that?

The Book Vixen said...

I almost got a tramp-stamp (before I knew what it was). I saw a really cool frog tattoo and wanted to put it there but decided not to. I have 3 tatts :D
