Top Ten Tuesday: Honest scrap award

I'm so honored to receive the Honest Scrap Award from Jessica Hill!  Quite fitting, since it's Tuesday, and I don't yet have a top ten post, AND the award means I should share ten things about myself.

Here I go...

10.  I have an artificial light box shining on my face right now.  I don't think I could survive the Northwest winters without it.

9.  I talk to my cats as if they're people.

8.  My favorite TV shows at the moment are True Blood, Dexter, and The Walking Dead. Yeah, clearly I'm a fan of the horror genre!

7.  I spook easily.

6.  I own a sewing machine.  I can hem shirts and pants and sew buttons, but that's about it.

5.  I'm much rather shop online than shop in stores.

4.  I like baking brownies.

3.  I can think up a Princess Bride quote for almost any occasion.  Let me explain... no, there is too much.  Let me sum up...

2.  I hate making small talk.  It hurts my brain to think of "small" things to say.

1.  I'm addicted to sticking GelaSkins on my electronic devices.  I tell myself it's to protect them, but really, I just think they look funky.

And now, I'll pass this award onto Milo James Fowler, Joann Swanson, and Jennie Bailey!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!


  1. Congrats on the award!

    I talk to cats, too.

  2. I talk to people like they’re cats ;)

    Congratulations on a well deserved award

  3. Ah fun! My cats aren't people too? Don't tell them that...
    HATE small talk! No one cares about the weather THAT much!
    Your Princess Bride fact cracked me up. I could totally hear Indigo saying it. Priceless...

  4. Gypsy, my cat, is not people. She is far too refined. She is royalty. And I am the surf ... or the smurf, considering her mood. And THE PRINCESS BRIDE is the apex, isn't it?

  5. You have made my day! I have a post for tomorrow. :-) My kittehs are higher beings in fur coats and I'm lucky they tolerate me, much less give me daily kisses.

    Love your list and thank you for passing it forward. :) Congrats on your award!

  6. The Walking Dead -- nice. Finally checked it out last night, and I LIKED it. That moment with the zombie on the grass and the empathy in the deputy's eyes . . . Priceless.

    The Princess Bride!! Love the movie, LOVE the book.

    My turn? Aw, gee... =]

  7. Number three makes me very, very happy. That is one of my all-time favorite movies.

    Also, I'm loving The Walking Dead, and now, craving brownies.

  8. Congrats on the award! Okay, Princess Bride - you too? My family and I toss them around ALL the time. There's so many that work for everything! :)

  9. Congrats! I love True Blood, too! I've always wanted to watch Dexter.

  10. Congrats on your award.

    We talk to our pets too--they talk back much less than the kids.

  11. Thank you for the award! I love that you spook easily but you write horror. How do you sleep at night? I love Princess Bride. I tried using that exact quote during a football game when the guy next to us went to the bathroom. He came back and asked, "what did I miss?" knowing it was something big with the crowd reaction. I said, "Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Buttercup to marry Humperdink in little less than half an hour..." My brother spit beer. No one else got it. So I need you to move closer and start going to games with me.

  12. dexter is brilliant. they have stopped airing it here in Australia :( have to wait for the seasons to come out on dvd.

    also, yay for the princess bride. my boys love quoting that movie

  13. True Blood? Me too. Light on face? Me too. Phew! Though we like vampires, we are not. Congrats!

  14. Woah! A girl that doesn't like to shop in stores? I'm pretty sure your boyfriend enjoys your efficient shopping strategies!

    Congrats on the award!!!

  15. I feel the same way about small talk! And, I love Dexter as well. :)

  16. Congratulations on your award! It is much deserved! I'm a huge fan of the horror genre myself. Dexter is oddly fascinating...

  17. Look at all the stuff we have in common!

    Thanks for stopping in, guys!

  18. 9. I talk to my cats as if they're people.

    This is fundamental to being a cat owner.

  19. Seven and eight seem contradictory. :)

    I totally relate with #2. TOTALLY!!!!
