Third Blogger Award for Under the Sheets-Shhh

Under the Sheets-Shhh was given it's third Honest Scrap blogger award by the lovely Tova Darling on January 2nd. This was such a nice way to start off the New Year. Thank you my sweet.

So the rules to accepting my award are as follows: A) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep! B) pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

Ok so here it goes...complete and embarrassing honesty. Please continue to visit my blog after you learn that I:

1) Got my belly button pierced when I was twenty-one. My best friend and I went to a tattoo shop in Orange County. She got her tongue pierced. I am not sure what labor will feel like, but this hurt like hell. Especially when the tattoo guy nicked me higher, made a hole higher then my belly button and then said to me "Ha Ha sorry about that. I will only charge you for the one hole."
2) I use to play G.I. Joe with my brother and his friend in our backyard. I just made up a girl character. I am so not a tomboy.
3) I hate airplane landings. HATE them. I am that woman on the plane that has to hold onto the sides of her arm rest and closes her eyes to stay calm as the plane lands. Please be nice to me if you sit next me on the plane.
4) I am a super organized person. I have a very hard time understanding why people lose their keys. I always ask them to "look in the same place that you always leave your keys."
5) I am a tweezing addict. Seriously I have a problem with tweezing my eyebrows. I always have and I think I always will. Help Me!
6) I have always wished that I was taller then my average height. Being taller would have really helped in my ballet dancing. " I wish I was a little bit taller....I wish I was a baller..."
7) Honestly, it really annoys me when people don't hold the door or elevator for other people. If you are a man please let the lady go first.
8) I overheat really easily. Heat stroke it not fun. Maybe it's because I am Canadian and my skin is so pale that I freak out when I feel the warmth?!
9) I have zero tolerance for alcohol. I only have to drink two glasses of wine and my lips start tingling, I lose my balance and I start telling you I love you. Watch out if we go wine tasting!
10) If a homeless person asks me for money I always tell them, no sorry but good luck to you.

My nominees for the the Honest Scrap blogger award are: La Balette Rouge, Simplicity, Motherhood in NYC, Mary-Laure, Holly, Pacing the Panic Room and George.

You must commence immediate alcohol training and work on your tolerance!

Thanks so much for the award! I can't think of anyone more deserving.


Holly said...

Ooooh, you made my day! Thanks Laura :)

Laura said...

I will keep trying Marinka, but at the age of 32 I think I'm a lost cause :)

I'll have to work it into the blog within the next week or so.

It's gonna be a toughie, but never fear young lady, I'll be up to the challenge.

Cora said...

Ooh, great list! My sister always loses her bills. Every dang month, and I'm like you, I can't help but say "shouldn't they be where you keep bills?". Turns out she doesn't have a place for bills. Bizarre. I got tagged with this one too, but I'm waiting until my cold dies off before I tackle it. Ten things is a lot to think about when you're sick (blah).

The Panic Room said...

Wait. What?! I won something? Do you need my pay pal info?

Thanks for thinking of me.

George said...

Wow! Laura, I'm absolutely honored.

Hey! I don't have to stand up in front of a bunch of people and give a speech or anything do I?

Thanks you for considering me on your list, I appreciate it.

George said...

What do I need to do? I am still kind of new at this blogging thing.

Cuckoo said...

Congrats Laura on the award.

Good going.
And I need to invite you for a drink now. ;)

Mary-Laure said...

Thank you so much, I'm delighted! I enjoyed reading your Honest Facts... I can't drink alcohol either.
