Honesty is the Best Policy

I’ve been tagged by Carolyn @ Writing is my therapy with the Honest Scrap award.

“The Honest Scrap award comes with a caveat or two. Firstly, you have to tell your readers ten things about you they may not know, but that are true. Secondly, you have to tag 10 people with the award. Thirdly, let all the people you’ve given the award to know that they’ve gotten it (comment on their blogs or something). And finally, make sure you link back to the person who awarded you.”

I’ve been tagged with this one before, but let’s see if I can come up with 10 new “honest” tidbits about myself.

1. I eat some strange things. Like whole cucumbers with salt on the outside. And egg whites w/ cream cheese and a little salt. (I like salt. And weird things with salt.)

2. When I was an unruly, bad ass teenager (or something like that), I used to steal. Nothing large, never clothing or stuff like that, but there was this one small shop by my house that I used to steal those wish bracelets/rings from, until I got caught. Well, they didn’t catch me, but my friend went back to the store after we had taken some stuff because she forgot something, and they wanted to hold her there until we came looking for her! She managed to leave, but I never went in there again. One time my mom wanted to go in and I freaked and made up something about wanting to go to some other store. Phew. (Side note – stealing is no longer condoned by Lacey Bean.)

3. I became a half-assed Wiccan after seeing The Craft when I was 12. And by half-assed I mean I bought some books on dreams and stuff, light some candles for love and whatever other things you light candles for, and I lit incense. Which I hated the smell of.

4. I lost my V-card when I was 16. On New Year’s Eve. Very cliché. But sadly I was not one of the first of my friends to lose it, I was one of the last! We moved fast in my circle. Sad.

5. It took two tries for me to pass my drivers test. And if memory serves me, two tries to pass my permit test. Yeah. I didn’t study at all. Ooops. And I’m not a HORRIBLE driver. Am I the best? That’s up for discussion…

6. Bloggers who are super popular and get TONS of comments make me jealous. Especially ones who have been blogging for less time than I have. What am I doing wrong?

7. I love to sing. LOVE to sing. But I will not sing in public or with Dave in the car. Only by myself, where I think no one else can hear me (singing in bars doesn’t count, because since everyone is singing along, no one can hear JUST me.) I think this stems from getting kicked out of elementary school Glee Club (HAHAHA) and also my Dad making fun of me for singing in the shower (where I thought no one could hear me, what was my logic on that one?) So now, no singing. Only to myself (and the massive crowd at the bar.)

8. I’ve wanted to get a tattoo for years, but can’t get the one I originally wanted because people will think it’s for Dave. (If you know his last name, then you’ll know what I wanted – BEFORE I met him.) Now I just decided on something else I want to get, but I’m afraid because I want it near my hip, and I don’t want it to stretch when it comes times that I am pregnant.

9. Larry David annoys the hell out of me. I have never seen Curb Your Enthusiasm because I cannot stand the sound of his voice. I don’t get why people think he’s funny. I also absolutely LOATHE Sacha Baron Cohen. LOATHE. I didn’t see Borat, and I wont see his new movie. I don’t think he’s at all funny, and I can’t stand comedians who get their laughs by exploiting others/making people uncomfortable. I give Isla Fisher credit for being married to him. I think he’s completely awful.

10. I am afraid that I am too selfish of a person to be a good mother. I know that’s supposed to change when you actually become a mother, but still, a little freaked!!

And I pass this award on to…

Pony up ladies! It’s your turn to be honest!!!


  1. I thought I was the only one who got hooked by the Craft. Too funny.

    I will remember you on #follow friday…then maybe you'll get yourself some much deserved comments

  2. Great list! I used to be obsessed with the Craft. I even bought a book on it once. My mom found it and freaked out on me!!

  3. SassyGirl says

    I used to steal too, before I even understood the concept of money. Got caught by my parents and they made me go back to the store and return it.
    I also did the Wiccan thing one Sunday afternoon. I actually don't mind the smell of incense.

  4. it totally took mt two tries to pass my permit test and my driver's test too! thank goodness i was not the only one 🙂

  5. Love this!!! I am absolutely petrified of being a mother. The furkids are enough for the moment. 🙂

  6. wowee we have a lot in common! Thanks for sharing your truths

  7. I've been wanting a tattoo for a while in honor of my grandmother who passed away, the main thing stopping me is my low/no tolerance for pain!

  8. i totally identify with number six too!!!

  9. you love to sing?!!?!?

    girlllll we need to do some karaoke!!

    thanks so much for the tag!! i feel the bloggie love!!


  10. I love cucumbers with salt… have you tried avocado with salt? That's one of my favorites!

    And yeah, I terrified of being a mom too soon…

  11. oops, that came out funny… I meant I'm terrified of being a mom too.

  12. Lacey claims she loves to sing- but this is a lie. She loves the idea of loving to sing. JLC, I will pay you to get her to do kareoke. I CONSTANTLY ask her to sing, and it NEVER HAPPENS!!!

  13. Ana from far away! says

    Thank you so much for the award!!! you are awesome!! I'll email you some info about CR and the must things you should do, hope you enjoy and like the Country!

  14. Shoshanah says

    Thanks for tagging me! The funny thing is I was tagged before, but never actually came up with 10 honest-ies about myself. I guess that's a sign that I was meant to come up with a list.

    And I completely agree with #6

  15. congratulations!!

  16. Suburban Sweetheart says

    Love this. And we have lots in common, apparently, aside from salt & Wicca. I used to steal; I refuse to watch "Curn Your Enthusiasm;" I am wildly jealous of bloggers who regularly receive even upwards of 15 comments.

  17. Um.

    I do the EXACT SAME THING.



  18. Organic Meatbag says

    If you were a slightly neurotic guy like me that is easily annoyed, then you would know why some people like Larry David…I love the guy…don't hate me! Hahahaha!
