an Honest Award

Thanks to Mary Christine for naming my blog for the Honest Award. I am appreciative for getting an award that indicates progress on one of my character defects. This award is my affirmation for the day.

The rules for this seem simpler than they are:
I'm to list 10 honest things about myself (no weazling room here)
I'm to pass the award on to 7 bloggers (I have no idea who already has gotten this)

So here goes:

1. I like computers and have six of them in the house--four of them are Mac's.
2. The most exciting aspect of my work has been going to the bottom of the ocean in a submersible.
3. I would rather write on my blog than work on scientific papers.
4. I like animals a lot and have several dogs and cats
5. I don't like to hear the telephone ring and would rather not answer it. And sometimes I don't.
6. I'm sick of the holiday stuff already and would rather that it be over.
7. I don't like to go into grocery stores. I find them boring and claustrophobic.
8. I am not a meat and potatoes person.
9. I like to stay up late at night but not get up in the morning.
10. If left to my own devices I would cook very little and could subsist on frozen pizza and BBQ wings.

So here are the bloggers that I want to give the award to:

Cedrorum at Mutual Casualty

Findon at the Rapacious Creditor

Michael at the Continuing Adventures of a Jedi Master

Jessie at Journey of the Spirit of Hope

Judith at Vicarious Rising

Mantra at Mantramine

Kristen at Progress not Perfection

If I get a chance to visit the above and let them know about the award, I'll have fulfilled my duties. And if anyone has already gotten the award, I'm sorry for having a bad memory (honest fact no. 11).

Happy Friday all.


  1. Congrats and have a great weekend Syd!

    Cngratulations on receiving the HONESTY award. I really think that's neat, because people really do think those things out, it's not a willy-nilly event.

  9. Congrats! We have a lot of these in common. The funniest one is #5. My loved ones think I'm off my rocker when the phone rings it doesn't even register for me. So, I often end up answering it just to spare them the anguish! Again deserve's why I keep coming back here!
