Honest Scrap Award

My blog sistergirl Ms.KnowItAll bestowed this honor upon me. I LOVE gifts and surprises so I am honored to fulfill my obligation.

Here are the rules...

1) Brag about it...
Brag? Who, me? *Breakin' it down to the Jacksons - Can you feel it? Can you feel it? CAN YOU FEEL IT!*

(2) Choose seven blogs I find brilliant and link to them, and..
Hmmm....I think the people who would participate have already been tagged. Besides if you follow The Storm or read it regularly you know I don't do chain letters. Good or bad.

(3) List 10 honest things about myself...

- I like finding out people's stories. Why they think the way they do. What life events brought them to this place in this time.

- I have never dated outside my race. I'm not opposed to it, just never happened. I'm sure this will change soon...

- Having a mundane desk job where I do the same thing every day is about as fun for me as having a molar pulled.

- I was the kid who got teased growing up, because of this I do not believe in picking on people, even if it is in good fun.

- I love non-mainstream music. Jazz, local artists and great live bands.

- The best date I ever had involved a man turning his bar into a homemade movie theater for just the two of us.

- The second best date I ever had was a long impromtu walk in the park with great conversation.

- I get bored with my job around year 3, my current job is starting to bore's year 4!

- I've never had a birthday party as an adult. That will change this year, I'm throwing myself a birthday bash. I have MUCH to celebrate!

- The only 'girlie' obessession I have is shoes. I LOVE cute shoes. Bring on the stilettos, sneakers and flats!

Peace & Blessings...


  1. Oh an awesome best date! You must have been floored!

    I love non-mainstream artists as well. The best are the ones that get little to no radio play.

    I was picked on too & I get defensive when I hear others talk about folks.

  2. I like knowing about people too, we must have something in common. I am crazy about shoes as well. I was shy in school but all that changed as I got older. Tell me when the party is gonna be, I will celebrate with ya if I could.

  3. MsKnowitAll...I was in pleasant shock as he re-wired his sound system and projected my favorite movie on the wall. Brownie points for DAYS!!!! LOL

    I still smile at the thought.

    QueenBee...I just started working on the birthday bash but the event planner in me wants it to be a great it shall be!

  4. I love when folks share a bit more about themselves. You my dear are a true romantic!

  5. Lovebabz...*waving* I am and hopefully will always be a true hopeless romantic ;)
