TMI award

Mindy, who I had the pleasure of meeting IRL (so wierd that we say that now), gave me this most coveted award. Thank you, fellow Colorado single mama!

The Honest Scrap award is given by other bloggers who consider a blog’s content or design to be brilliant. The awardees must then post ten honest things about
themselves and pass the award on to other bloggers who fit the bill – in other words, whose blog is brilliant.”

I think honesty is put to the test when you tell people things you’d rather not share. Things that scare you.  So here’s 10 painfully honest / potentially disturbing things about me (proceed with caution):

  1. I blogged about growing up with the non-deoderant wearing counter-culture before, but might as well reiterate the embarrassment: My best friend in high school had to tell me that I stunk. Our science teacher pulled her aside and asked her to say something to me. It was probably the most humiliating experience of my life.
  2. I failed my driver’s test twice. Probably the second most humiliating experience of my life.
  3. At film school I was asked to be “topless, taking a bong hit” in a student video project, because I had big tits and he  wanted to visually represent  Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘N Roll. I politely declined.
  4.  However, I did play a lesbian drug dealer in a different student film.
  5. I was hazed when I joined the college basketball team. They gave us shots of Bacardi 151 and forced us to go on stage at the local comedy club. 3rd most humiliating experience of my life.
  6. I was approached by the boyfriend of my college roommate. When his girlfriend found out he was sending me naughty emails, he claimed I seduced him, and it ended my friendship with her. I’m sure she still considers me a crazy, white trash slut from Colorado.
  7. I’ve had boyfriends of friends approach me twice more since then.
  8. My lowest point: I traded my 1989 Honda Civic for 500 Oxycodone.
  9. I wanted to sing “Over the Rainbow” at my grandpa’s funeral, but I chickened out.
  10.  When I’m lonely and missing men, I go here to satisfy my needs. P.S. I think its a lot better than going to my friends’ boyfriends. Assholes.

As for the following kick-ass  bloggers, I bestow the award upon you, and I dare you to be as honest 😉

  1. So glad you listed #10 — I’ve never met another woman who will admit to watching that. It made me feel like this rare breed of female, so I’m glad I’m not the only one out there!


    1. Hey, even women have dirty thoughts (though we’re not allowed to talk about it). As long as consenting adults are involved, what’s the problem?

      P.S. There IS a lot of crap on that site that I DON’T like. Since I have yet to find a female-friendly porn site, we still have to weed through the nastiness to find suff that actually turns us on.


  2. I wonder if the comedy club experience would’ve been higher on the list had there not been alcohol involved! Congrats, dear. I’m still not sure which honest things I can say that I haven’t already been said.


  3. Thank you… gosh sharing that I thought I had a UTI because I had a mocha at starbucks wasn’t embarrassing enough? I am sure I can come up with something to share..LOL! Love your list, gosh boyfriends can be pure asshats can’t they?


  4. All I know is that if you were sending emails in college – you are very young!!! I didn’t have email til I had two kids and a husband (still have the kids – they’re in high school). Those are fabulous honest statements.

    I’m not that honest.
