Honesty and Scrap Metal

Thanks so much to Jenn at Between the Lines for the Honest Scrap Award:

This is the Honest Scrap award. It is for those bloggers who write from the heart. The rules are to pass it along to seven bloggers and then list 10 honest things about myself. Here are those deserving of this honor, bloggers who write from the heart and touch me because of it:
  1. Amanda at The Zen Leaf
  2. Beth F at Beth Fish Reads
  3. Readerchick12 at The Here. The Now. And the Books!
  4. The Elf at Shelf Elf: read, write, rave.
  5. Aimee at my fluttering heart
  6. Jo at Once Upon a Bookcase
  7. Kate at The Neverending Shelf
And now for 10 honest things about me:
  1. I hate cooked onions. I can't remember a time when I didn't.
  2. When I get cold, my fingernails, toes, and lips turn blue. This led to me acquiring the nickname "blue giraffe" at summer camp one year after a dip in the lake. (The "giraffe" part was because I was skinny. I think.)
  3. Impatience is something I need to work on. I wish I could be less impatient... now!
  4. I once worked in a chocolate factory. It wasn't as magical as Roald Dahl would have you believe.
  5. I have lived in Canada and the U.S.A., and have visited Tijuana, Mexico... but I've never been off the continent.
  6. I prefer dogs to cats.
  7. My favourite colour is purple.
  8. I like Shirley Temple movies.
  9. I love the misting kind of rain that we get here in the Pacific Northwest.
  10. It bugs me when I see people give their kids intentionally misspelled names just to be trendy... which is kind of ironic, since my middle name could be considered a trendy misspelling!


  1. Thank you so much for this award! And congrats on receiving it yourself! :)

  2. Thank you. That was very sweet. :)

  3. I stumbled across your blog through another and found your Series Nostalgia of the Babysitters Club. Loved that whole series, even the vacation editions.!

  4. Very cool honest things. I love this. I have to say I always loved Shirley Temple my self, the movies and the drinks.

  5. Congratulations on your award and for sharing all those secrets about yourself.

  6. Oh wow!! Thanks so much for thinking of me. I've never seen this award before and it's a great one.

    I love your 10 things. I wonder if you still like chocolate now that you've worked in a factory. I like Shirley Temple and the mists of the Pac NW too.

  7. Thank you so much!!!
    My first award! *faints*
    And congrats for getting it!!!
