You can't handle the truth!

The wonderful Liberality zapped me with the Honest Scrap Award which appears to be a bloggy game of truth or dare. I ain't afraid of the truth.

1.You must brag about the award
2.You must include the name of the blogger who bestowed the award on you and link back to the blogger
3.You must choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design
4.Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog.
5.List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself.Then pass it on with the instructions!

My victims are:
1. Snabulus
2. Swinebread
3. Lockwood
4. Fran
5. Arkonbey
6. Lisa
7. Ubermilf.

My 10 Truths-
1) In high school I made the cover of the sports page for the state paper with a color photo captioned "Dean Wormer made the stop for the Rams." It showed me wrapping a running back, preparing to take him down. In truth that guy ran right over the top of me.
2) I cry while watching movies wayyyy to easily.
3) Some of my Facebook friends are women that I went to grade school with and I still feel guilty for teasing them 30 years ago but can't bring myself to apologize because I'm afraid it will make me look weird if they don't remember.
4) My little league career ended after I took a line drive to the eye and couldn't later control the fact I was ball shy.
5) At the market I've picked up a bottle of Rogaine more than once, only to change my mind and put it back on the shelf.
6) Don't know if this is an admission but I'm a HUGE nerd. I read comics, watch sci-fi and horror.
7) I'm saving up to afford to get into Cowboy Action Shooting. It's like SCA only with real guns, etc. I'm going to be a Clint Eastwood type.
8) I have a lot of favorite books but one of my all time is "Watership Down." That's right- I like talking bunnies.
9) In college I had an apartment where I slept on a futon mattress on the floor and a pack of feral cats would stampede up and down the hall all night, keeping me awake. So I sprinkled Paprika up and down the hall to try and keep them away. So mean.
10) Even though I often suggest to my brother that he should get a real job I admire the fact that he's followed his dream of acting and has made somewhat of a living at it.

six is a 'well, duh' ;)

Clint Eastwood type? Too easy (and likely too many). Given comment 5, perhaps a cool Yul Brenner (Mag 7) type?

Man. I have to see that movie again.

Dean Wormer said...

It's funny you mention that movie because I just watched Brenner in "Return of the Magnificent 7" and was thinking I have to show the kids "Westworld."

Course my favorite Brenner flick is still "King and I." "Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera."

Randal Graves said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA@2 and 6. Crybaby nerd. Wait.

As for no. 5, c'mon, try the Rogaine. Inquiring receders want to know if it really does work.

Life As I Know It Now said...

I think you ought to tell your friends from grade school you are sorry just so that YOU feel better, never mind if they remember the teasing or not!

Thanks for playing along. Did you notice this is not a hyper capitalistic award?

Ubermilf said...

I can do honest. I can even do painfully honest. When do I have to have this done by?

Dr. Zaius said...

Surprise! YOur Facebook friends that you think are women that I went to grade school are actually protoplasmic tentacle beings from the planet Mongo. So it is unlikely that they remember the whole teasing them in grade school thing.

BTW, Watership Down is one of my favorite books, too. I used to have a rabbit. :o)

lisahgolden said...

Aaaack! You want to see honesty from me? Isn't broadcasting video of myself eating an ice cream cone in a most suggestive manner honesty enough?

You know, I worry about my hair thinning, too. May I suggest a shampoo called Folicure? You can get it online or at beauty supply stores like Sally's. I swear it's working for me. One of my readers told me about it, so I'm passing it on.) MathMan uses it, too.

And thank you for the award. Really. Thank you.

Fran said...

I'm Catholic - remember? Therefore incapable of telling the truth!

BTW, there are many Dean Wormers on FB, how do I know which one is you???

Fran said...

I so never do these things. That said, seeing you say we might have potential disagreement (at Morning Martini) scared the Be-Jeebus out of me and I complied.
