My First Blog Award - I'm officially an Honest Scrap!


Yesterday, I got an unexpected kiss from Luscious Sealed Lips, who bestowed upon me my very first blog award, The Honest Scrap. So now that I am an Honest Scrap, I must abide by two rules:

1. List 10 honest and interesting things about yourself.
2. Honor 7 other bloggers with the award.

10 Honest and Interesting Things About Myself
  1. I started blogging almost by accident. Before I started writing Don't Be a Slut in October, I didn't even follow blogs.
  2. In 2005, I did a weight-loss infomercial that ran on TV. Since then, I've gained 85 pounds. How embarrassing!
  3. I haven't had sex since 2006. I love sex. I'm starting to hump – oops, I mean – climb the walls.
  4. I originally intended for this blog to be completely anonymous, but thanks to Facebook, I'm completely out in the open, and it actually feels good.
  5. I love writing about me, and I hate writing about software (my day job for the last 10 years).
  6. Deep down, I still want to be an actress. But not enough to go bankrupt while I waste my life on crap audition after crap audition.
  7. A few days ago, I woke up to a find a live mouse swimming in my toilet. Didn't have the heart to flush him myself, so I called my landlord. Cowardly, but effective.
  8. I just spent the last six weeks or so moving through a really dark depression. Lots of tears, gallons of self pity, truckloads of chocolate. I'm better (and fatter) now.
  9. I'm a deeply spiritual person, but sometimes I wonder if spirituality and religion are not just a gigantic pacifier we use just to survive the vicissitudes of life.
  10. I'm a curious mix of studious nerd, earnest do-gooder, intolerant bitch and soft-hearted artist. Makes for an interesting life.

Blogs I'm Honoring
Seven was a bit much. Drumroll please, here are my two picks for blogs that are both deeply personal and honest.

  1. My Girlfriend is an Escort: The tale of a man who is in love with a woman whose job is a little ... well, interesting. I give him kudos for telling his story and for dealing with reader comments, which range from kind to cruel.
  2. Makes Me Wanna Holler: It's a roses and warts look at fatherhood and marriage, from dealing with your wife's granny panties to going Bill Cosby on your messy son to rescuing your daughter from a life-threatening allergic reaction.

Are sex and weight inversely proportionate? I got sex when I started losing weight.

Kisses.
