Honest Scrap


Dandy, from Spontaneous Clapping awarded me with the Honest Scrap award. I have to tell you 10 honest things about myself...

1. I don't know how to turn the big screen t.v. in our rec room off or on. There are too many remotes. The kids have to do it for me.
(Edited to add: Okay. Here's the real truth. I had to get my son out of bed one night to have him turn the t.v. off for me.)

2. Sometimes I'll make it a point to stay up and watch the news, so I can hear the weather report. And then I'll space out and not hear a word of it.

3. I like postage stamps. I used to collect them, but now I just like having an assortment on hand, using them for letters and cards.

4. I can sing every song from Mary Poppins.

5. I can spend a half hour browsing the magazine aisle at the grocery store. I've learned to skip over it, or go there before I go to the frozen food section.

6. I'd love to own a stationery store.

7. Math makes my stomach queasy. Really.

8. My dad insisted I take advanced algebra in high school and I still get dizzy thinking about it.

9. Favorite perfume: Chanel 19

10. If my husband would agree to it, I would paint every wall in our house yellow. But, he would like me to come up with a different color scheme for our bedroom and the family room. So they remain unpainted. I'm having a tough time with this one.

Whew, that was tough. My mind is so full of useless information, until it's time to spit some of it out. Then I draw a blank.

I'm not going to tag anyone in particular for this, but would love it if everyone who is reading it would jump in! Let me know if you do, and be sure to add the button to your post. I'd love to read yours!

I feel your pain on the TV. Last night I was babsitting a one year old and I could not figure out the TV at his house. I had to call his mother at work. It had two remotes one of which I have never dealt with before. lol I was really panicking because he was tired and fussy. :)

If my family would let me I would paint the whole house green.
I love stationary. I need to start writing before again so I can justify adding to the collection. :)

Oh I laughed at your weather report space-out. I think we've all done that. So sometimes I'll watch the weather on one channel, and then have to watch it on another channel again! Enjoy your weekend ...

That was fun. Mary Poppins eh? I bet I could sing them with you. I used to have the record album of the songs when I was a little girl.

And I have to tell you that I used to go to the library for hours and hours and read magazines when I could not afford to get the one or two I especially love delivered to my house :)

Susanne said...

Guess what? I do the same thing with the news and the weather. And that is why I love, love, love my DVR. Rewind, baby! LOL.

Let's open a stationary store together. Stationary makes me happy!

These were great! Can you believe I've never seen Mary Poppins?! But I can sing every song from the Sound of Music, does that make up for that gaffe on MP?!

I've done that with the news also, which is why I've learned to love weather.com, LOL!

Hope you have a wonderful day Karen :)

Jen said...

I used to collect postage stamps too, my hubs once gave me a bottle of Chanel 19 because I loved the ad so much ( but as it turned out the perfume was not relly my kind of thing), and I love magazines just as much as you do. Only I alwauys end up buying them. DUH!!

Nice meeting you!

KAT said...

HI Karen I might do this later in the week if I get a chance. I used to collect stamps too and have a hard time parting with some. Have a wonderful week!

Very interesting. My mother often wore Chanel 19 (I gave it to her). I used to collect postage stamps when I was very young. I recently purchased a large old album at an auction and I look through it once in awhile. I think some are worth a few dollars, although probably nothing that would make me a millionaire. I might do this meme, too.

oh, how i can relate to a few of these.

i can't figure out our big screen tv either for the same reason... too many remotes.

i've done the same thing with waiting for the weather and then somehow missing it because i'm not paying attention.

i bet i can get most of the songs from mary poppins plus all the songs from sound of music.

okay, i'll stop there. i'll probably do this and i'll let you know when i do. it's a fun way to get to know someone.
