10 Confessions about Myself

I’m very excited to announce that the lovely SandyB has bestowed upon me my very first blog award! (“The Honest Scrap Award”) I’ve seen these on other people’s blogs but have never been a recipient– until now. Thanks SandyB, you’re awesome. 

Once you’ve received the Award, you need to complete the following responsibilities:

1) List 10 HONEST, personal (or bizarre? interesting?) things about yourself that you wouldn’t normally tell people (except maybe a therapist who is paid to listen to this kind of stuff?)

2) Pass this award on to 10 other bloggers that you love to read & think others should too.

3) Tell your friends to check out the award giver’s blog–In this case SandyB because her blog is a lot of fun. Remember to tell the giver that you’ve completed these steps so that they can go read your lists.

My Honest Facts:

1) Following the death of a close family friend when I was in Junior High I became very, very depressed. I could barely function and my Mom had to send me to a therapist for teens. My therapist was awesome and the she helped me tremendously. 

2) I hate extra oil on my skin or in my pores. If I see any oil in my pores or anything that looks like it will develop into a blackhead I have to squeeze it out. I read in an interview with 
Lisa Left Eye Lopez of 90’s R&B group TLC, that she also had the exact same weird habit. This made me feel less alone. (I also enjoy collecting trivia on washed up R&B groups from the 90’s)

3) I often relate everyday happenings in my life to specific episodes of 
How I Met Your Mother. Like “So and So, would be off the charts on Barney’s Crazy/Hot Scale” or “I think _____ is actually the Sexless Innkeeper”. BF actually started to watch a few episodes with me (probably so he could figure out what I’m talking about half the time).

4) I think I must have this weird electro-magnetic energy that flows through my body because whenever I wear a watch the battery always dies, within a few days to a few weeks. BF has given me two fancy watches since we’ve been together. Both were dead before the 3 week mark. Also my wrists are so small its hard to even find watches that fit me (outside of shopping in the children’s department). I’ve just gave up on watches all together.

5) The most interesting place I’ve ever had sex is on the roof of a parked car. Now, THAT is a good story. (What can I say? Danger and hard surfaces turn me on)

6) Years ago I was seeing a guy who had erectile difficulties. Out of sexual frustration I decided to see another guy on the side. The first night we were together I discovered he also had erectile difficulties. It was a shady thing to do in the first place and you could say that I got what I deserved. Guys who’ve heard this story have reported that for a week afterwards THEY had problems getting it up. Obviously its contagious.

7) FYI. Viagra doesn’t make sex better. It just makes bad sex last longer.

8) In Junior High I performed a very embarrassing lip sync and dance routine to Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”. I even wore a costume, memorized dance moves and loaded my curly hair up with gel to simulate a Jheri curl. People actually clapped.

9) Whenever I’m walking around town listening to my ipod I’m usually choreographing dance routines or writing stories in my head. I’m really surprised I haven’t been hit by a car yet. 

10) I danced in a cage one night while at a club in Italy. It was a dare but honestly I didn’t need much coaxing. That Grappa is really strong stuff.
