Definately Honest. Definately Crap.

So I was tagged by Savy Suzi to spill my guts.



List 10 honest things about yourself.

Pass this on to 7 bloggers whom you feel embody the spirit of the Honest sCrap.

1. I arrive to work an hour early or leave an hour late every day just to blog.





2. I hate shopping. When I was younger my mom used to pay me to go shopping (in addition to paying for my clothes). I get anxiety and get really ornery, in Jr. High I remember shopping with my best friend DeAnna (the kindest person I've ever met) and I yelled at her because she brought me the wrong size. You don't wanna mess with me when I'm shopping!

Sorry De!




3. I also hate talking on the phone. I screen my calls and sometimes I don't even answer if it's my husband. I'd much rather wait until they leave a message and then send them a text. I have to have a cell phone for work and I always leave it in the car or let it run out of batteries. Sometimes my mom freaks out if she can't get a hold of me and she starts calling Alex to make sure I'm alive. I just think it's a waist of time, just send me an email people!



4. A couple of years ago at the job I have now, I accidentally burnt some toast in the break room. The fire alarm went off and the whole building had to be evacuated. The building has 23 floors and so everyone had to walk down 23 flights of stairs to get out of the building. The fire trucks showed up and everything!

My nickname at work is now Toast.




5. I confess, when I was 4 I stole my friends sparkly princess barbie shoes. They were beautiful and I wanted them so bad so I hid them in my pocket while over at her house and left. I never gave them back.


6. I want to have kids but I'm deathly afraid of not being able to get pregnant because of my health issues or because I am getting too old. I worry about it all the time!


7. I have a problem with leaving doors open in my house. My poor little kitty Smokey ran away 3 times because I left the back door open. One time he was gone for a month and we put up posters and everything. Turns out he was living in one of my neighbors garage the whole time!

Stupid neighbors!


8. I still love coloring and own my own crayons and coloring books.




9. I don't let my hubster cut his own nails, I love giving him manicures and pedicures!


10. I'm obsessed with notebooks and pens. There's nothing like getting a new notebook with fresh crisp pages and writing on the first page with a new smooth pen. I love it. I've got tons of notebooks at home and at work that are not even half used because I just have to have brand new ones.



So now I get to tag 7 people:

1. Dani
2. Mindy
3. Chelsea
4. RiverMist Expressions
5. Staci's Heart
6. Making Memories
7. DeAnna Marie


Do it, or don't but I'd rather you do it but you don't have to unless you want to make me happy then you should do it but if you hate me you don't have to do it or you could do it and state how much you hate me in your list but if you hate me and you are too busy then don't do it but do it if you like me k?

Either way...

Call Me Cate said...

We have a lot in common. Including the fact that every time I see this award I think "Honest Crap".

The phone, though. Ugh, I hate the phone. I only (usually) answer if it's my husband. Even my work phone. And we have a way of leaving messages directly on voicemail without ever ringing coworkers' phones. It's awesome.

Jolene said...

I can't believe you burned some toast that bad! lol

Donnetta said...

I'd MUCH rather text/email. In fact, when I fill out the beginning of the year papers for my kids, I go ahead & tell their teachers if there is an issue to email me rather than call!

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE new pens!! Notebooks are cool, but for me, it's all about the pens!

Kasey Hunt said...

I hated shopping too. Nothing ever fit. Pants were too short. I would get called Big Girl. I'm not Big, I'm Tall!!! I even knock over a boy in my 2nd grade class because I was so much bigger than him! He just ran into me and down he went!! Most have been all of that whole milk I grew up on at the farm.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Hey Toast!

Can I call you so we can color together?? LOL, this was great to read. You didn't pick me so I guess you'll never know for sure if I like you or not.......

Suzi said...

I HATE HATE HATE to shop, still to this day I hate it. Thanks for playing along, I learned a lot of Honest sCRAP about you.

Beki said...

I think you might me my long lost twin!!!! Aside from stealing Barbie shoes, those are all me....especially the notebooks and shopping!!!

heathersister said...

Dang girl. I kinda got the impression you were a little weird, now I know the truth! You are. Must be why I like your blog so much. :)

KAL071203 said...

oh my gosh number 8 made me laugh I still love to color too.. but my Neuroticness is at an even higher level, I can't deal with kids breaking/pressing to hard...so I have My crayons and my 4 year-old has is own crayons.... It also drives me nuts if we start coloring and he decided he wants to "help" with my picture. I know I should seek help...

tara @ kidz said...

I love coloring too! My brother teases me like crazy about that. Big brothers are eternal teasers.

I'm totally lovin the guilt trip at the end of the post. That's my style!

misspro312 said...

I love to text!!

I once stole a mini troll doll from a friend, and she had to ride to my house to get it back. I got in so much trouble!

I also am scared of being pregnant!!

angie said...

I don't think I could give mani/pedi's to anybody!

I love making lists, so I definitely have a few notebooks lying around.

I don't like shopping either.

Thank goodness for cellphones. I never ever answered my landline.

The pregnant thing - I'll be 36 next month and I finally want a baby. I think the only way it will happen is if it's an accident.

Ben and Ash said...

I hate shopping and talking on the phone too! And I burned toast and evacuated a whole building too! Ok, I didn't do that last one, but still, maybe we're related...oh wait...huh?

blueviolet said...

I love opening up a fresh notebook to write in too. Nothing like it!

I really loved hearing all of these things about you!

Lyndsay said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your list and can relate to pretty much every single one of them ... however, I have never, I repeat never, stolen Barbie shoes and I was only an accomplice in our office-burnt-toast episode!

yulz said...

Staci said...

IM ON IT!!! And I died when i read about the toast....holy shnikes what in the heck did you dooo?? what did you say???

Jennifer Lee said...

Staci said...

Tremayne and Dellany Higby said...

You need to go to BA, bloggers anonymous! Poor Smokes, that actually happened to lil Foxxy Cleopatra when she was just a babe. I was searching the whole 'hood for her and finally found her trapped in someone elses garage. I would have never known but the little thing was meowing her head off, good kitty.

OH and you are terrific, Toast!

nikkicrumpet said...

Great post...I love these "tell all" memes. And the toast story is hilarious...I bet everyone was SOOOO mad at you!

Yaya said...

Toast,
These are too funny! I cannot believe you hate shopping and cellphones...you're like the 'anti girl'...lol! Actually I hate 'talking' too...love whoever came up w/ texting!
Cannot believe you stole your friend's shoes!

Hula's Secret Blog said...

Oh my gosh, I have so many notebooks around my house.
Eww...you cut your hubby's toenails, yuck!

I loved your list, Pooba. I am considering even calling you "toast" going forward.

Do you really worry about having kids? I think you still have plenty of time. Seriously. I had my first when I was 30. The biological clock does tick, but not that fast, honey.

I am sure that you and Alex are going to be great parents someday. Case in point: you already understand and appreciate the importance of drinking as a method of survival. What more do you need?

Andrea said...

Hey, just stopping by from SITS. Great post!

Rhea said...

I love to color.

And more than anything, I love pens and notebooks. Colorful pens, blank pages. I'm passionate about them.
