About a week ago Srg tagged me for the Honest Scrap Award. As with most prizes, there are a few rules.
A) 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.
While normally a compulsive rule follower, with memes, not so much. Since I'm not going to pass this on (I think everyone I know has already done it), I won't officially accept the prize. But that doesn't mean I won't do the work. And, as a special bonus, I did find a place to buy the sign if you want. And I figured out that "Honest Scrap" was a brand of loose chewing tobacco, like Red Man. Don't say I don't give back.
So a little Honest Scrap about your buddy Scope.
01 - I hate the phone. Necessary evil, and it has its uses, but I'm not good on it, and I hate to be put on the spot, especially at work. Email me your problem, let me figure it out and get back to you.
02 - I am embarrassed for you. I will leave the room if someone on TV is doing something stupid and embarrassing. Hence I watch little "Reality" TV.
03 - I love History Channel's "Modern Marvels". I think I've seen the one on concrete about 15 times.
04 - I make about enough money. Not bragging. It's not like I'm Richie Rich or anything. I have no wife. I have no kids. I usually enjoy my job and think that I'm fairly compensated. (It's a 7 hour day for God's sake!) I make enough to cover the bills, and not really need to worry about it. The rules said to "dig deep". Would you trade your spouse and kids to be comfortable? Yeah, didn't think so. Now who's jealous of who?
05 - Rhymes, alliteration, and puns: Love 'em.
06 - I share a birthday with Diane Sawyer. I would like us to celebrate it in our birthday suits doing the "sweaty samba."
07 - My favorite time of day to see on a clock is 12:34. If I notice it is 12:33 I will stare at the clock until it changes.
08 - I fart in elevators.
09 - I believe in the soul... the cock...the pussy... the small of a woman's back... the hanging curve ball... high fiber... good scotch... that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent overrated crap... I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a Constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve, and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.
10 - I like to quote movies and song lyrics in casual conversation where ever possible.
So, are you looking for a little more honesty out of your new buddy, Scope? If so you are in luck. My 100th post is coming up in a couple of weeks, and I'm going to try to do what Sass tried, 100 honest things about me. I'm already well on my way to filling it in (and giving up 10 here hurt, but like I said, I give like that), but I do want to field some questions from the peanut gallery. I can't promise to use all that I get, (some more free honesty there for you) but I would like to tell you some of the things you may be wondering about. Just send me your questions via the gmail account listed in the upper right corner.
