honest to goodness

The fabulous Lou Lou has tagged me for an Honest Scrap award...thank you Lou Lou.

The rules are:

1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
2. Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.
3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

Everything you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask:

1. I firmly believe in the ability of a McDonald's quarter pounder w/ cheese and french fries to completely turn around a bad day.
2. I love love love planners. I'm completely lost without mine.

3. You know those baby corn cobs in Chinese food? I'm repulsed by them. I once had
an unfortunate experience involving baby corn and I can't even look at it.
4. I was a cheerleader in high school ( i know, i know, it's
shocking!). And I love cheerleading! I try to take in a couple of competitions every year, especially College Nationals, which unfortunately I missed this past weekend. If I had more time, I'd like to coach a middle
or high school team.
5. I'm kind of a homebody. I like getting out as much as the next girl but I really love staying in with some take-out and a movie on a friday night.

6. When I am out and about, I am that annoying girl who tries to photograph everyone and the goings on.
7. I love dachshunds--obvi, you've all seen stella
8. I love books. I like to read but I also really like acquiring books. My house will one day have a beau
tiful library with built-in bookshelves.
9. I am 21 and have spent one third of my life in all the places I've lived. FL, Baltimore and FL again!

10. I'm glad I don't have to go to school anymore but I miss buying school supplies and I was really good at school. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to be really good at something else soon :)

In other news...
Grosgrain Lane tagged me for the " find the closest book, go to the page 56, 5th sentence,
etc." so here it goes...

Long Time Leaving: Dispatches from Up South by Roy Blou
nt Jr.
pg. 56/ fifth sentence
Reruns of Hogan's Heroes are very popular in Germany right now. Let's talk about that some other time.
In this country there's a book out called The Redneck Manifesto. Its author, Jim Goad isn't Southern: " My mother was urban Philly garbage, my father was rural Vermont scum. Together they fled to a concrete Dogpatch five miles outside the City of Brotherly Love."

What a random passage. The book is really funny and has amusing anecdotes about being a Southerner and living up north.
I think I'm the last one to post these tags/awards, so if you haven't participated, join on in :)
