Compulsive Liar

...not really!  In fact, Rosemarie at the *beautimous* Just Moi gave me the Honest Scrap Award!!  

Here is how it goes:

#1: Choose a minimum of 7 spectacular blogs that you can't live without and pass this goodie on to them
#2: Post the "chosen ones" on your bog in link form AND
#3: List 10 honest things about yourself (the hardest part unless you are addicted to embarrassing stories like me)

I will try my absolute hardest to think of things you don't already know about me but I will apologize in advance just in case any of these are repeats!  Let's roll...

number one - I still cry EVERY time I watch The Notebook.  It never fails, no matter how hard I try to act like I just have allergies that day, everyone knows I am crying like a baby.

number two - When I was a teenager, I would cut off pieces of my hair that weren't acting right that day.  This all stopped when I realized that I was beginning to look bald.  Who would have thought?

number three - As a young child, I was asked to sing "Jesus Loves Me" in front of the church (even though I couldn't sing).  When I got to the part that says, "We are weak but He is strong" I said, "We are FREAKS but He is strong."  Booya.  Talk about never singing again.  

number four - I randomly try to convince people to buy Mac computers.  I have no real reason to do this and don't really know what I'm talking about, but somehow I feel compelled to pass on the wonder that is Apple.  My very first computer (way back in the day) was an Apple and I fell in love at first site.  It had the old color logo and the screen could only produce black and green.  But damn it if I didn't play me some Oregon Trail on that thing!

number five - I hate candles that smell like desserts, i.e. sugar cookies, vanilla ice cream, creme brulee....

number six - One time I stole a fortune cookie, or five.  It was completely innocent - I asked my mom "Can I have one of these" and she thought I said, "Do you have to pay for these?"  Her answer was "No, they look stale" so I took about five of them.  Why I would proceed to take them after I was told they were stale remains unexplained but later my mom found the wrappers and asked if I had paid for them.  Busted!

number seven - When I was in elementary school, a little boy told me that ketchup was made of chicken blood and I believed him.  I should have slapped him instead.  ;)

number eight - I get upset when my husband says something mean to one of my cats even though he says it in a nice tone and they obviously can't understand English. I have actually cried over this...lame.  He secretly loves both Grenade and Biscuit.

number nine - I love all things sour.  I think I mentioned this before, but I have been known to forego regular food and eat only sour candy for a meal.  Delicious...maybe I still have some sour patch kids left??

number ten - I love reading comments that people leave on my blog - especially if they have experienced whatever that particular post happens to be about.  If you ever read something on this little blog of mine that makes you think of something funny, PLEASE, PLEASE share it!  I love to laugh and I love to hear about crazy stories!  

Now comes the easy part.  There are way more than seven blogs that I absolutely adore, but I will try to pick those of you who have not yet gotten the chance to be brutally honest!  If you have already done this, feel free to skip it...

I pick:

and...anyone else who wants to be totally honest!

I know that is only six, technically five, but it is hard to people who haven't recently played!  That just means we are super honest ladies!

And ketchup is chicken blood? Can you eat ketchup now? I think I'd be scarred for life, thinking of chicken blood every time I had ketchup!! Ugh, little boys lol!

I love the comment about your singing debut! When I was 3, I was in a dance recital and my older sister was bragging about me to everyone around. Just then, I turned my back to the crowd, lifted up my frilly dress and showed the audience my "pretty panties."
