Check It, Somebody Likes Me!

Jessica over at Mental Vomit has awarded me the Honest Scrap award for being a blogger that she enjoys and maybe even respects. Wow, who knew my blathering on could actually affect others positively? Anyway, I want to say a big THANK YOU to her for reading and thinking I’m worth a shout out on her blog. And per the rules (see below) I’m going to continue passing on the love. The 10 bloggers who I feel most deserve this award:

Maureen at The Daily Snark

Lesley at Um..what

Jessica at Mommas Gone City

Stephanie at Mommish

As for 10 brutally honest things about myself, hmmm, here goes:

1) I am completely inept at small talk. I always share too much personal info.

2) When speaking to people I have to conciously think about making eye contact or else I won’t. And then I have to remember to glance away occassionally so I don’t freak them out with an intense stare. I’m not sure I ever do it right.

3) I think I may have mild social anxiety (see above)

4) I used to take pride in seeing how many days I could go without leaving the house.

5) I have no friends outside of the computer.

6) The one time I tried to throw a birthday party for my daughter, no one came.

7) I am terrified my kids will experience the rejection and disappointment I have.

8) I worry the real reason I want to have more kids is so I will have people to love me.

9) I am completely addicted to TV. I can easily watch 16 hours at a time.

10) I’m really sick right now, and this is the best I can come up with for today’s entry.

The rules:
*Say thank you and give a link to the presenter of the award
*Share “10 Honest Things” about myself
*Present the award to 10 other bloggers whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or to those who have encouraged me
*Be sure to tell the 10 bloggers chosen that you are giving them the Honest Scrap award and provide the guidelines for them

    So cool! Thank you!! I hope you feel better soon, and I too could sit in front of the TV ALL DAY. Boredom? IMPOSSIBLE.

  2. Thank Kate!

    I hope you’re feeling better today and that Poppy and Pixie are giving you lots of snuggle time.

    You made my day! I have a sick little boy w/ swine flu and possible pneumonia but when I get out of this yuck I’ll be sure to follow the instructions.

    Oh, and LOVE your honesty! I’m way too share-y too and trying to get better. For my husband’s sake if nothing else. My life is an open book. Wish I could be more mysterious like some people I know but it is just not my nature. (And mysterious people probably don’t write blogs!)

  4. THANK YOU KATE!! You’re cooler than the other side of the pillow. :) Aaaaand … you will be getting a SECOND link to your page on my blog! Whoohoo!

    As far as your facts about yourself, I was diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder in college. Someday, perhaps, I will blog about it …

  5. This made my day. I’ve had a pretty crappy week in Snarkville and this cheered me up! I will pass this along to someone this weekend!

    Thank you so much for the nomination!! Fun idea, I hope to get around to it. Loved you list BTW. Girl, how the heck do you find time to write TWO BLOGS?! I’m entirely impressed. I barely have time to email :)
