Honest Honestly

I've been tagged by Miss Ginger Grant to write 10 honest things about myself. Oh, the pressure! I appreciate the honor of being described as an honest blogger and just love Miss Ginger's quick wit, outgoing personality, creativity, and neatness! Thank you very much for the Honest Blogger Award, Miss Ginger! Fabulous is the right word to describe her blog. OK, here goes!

1. I HATE milk and always have. I'd have to put Hershey's Syrup or Nestles Quick in it to get it down but now can't even do that. Cold cereal is rarely an option because of the milk it swims in. If I have to eat it, I put the minimum amount of milk on it to make it damp. It grosses me out just to watch people drink milk.

2. It makes me nervous to drive across a bridge, but I did OK riding across and through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. It made me happy when I found out my wife-in-law had to get my ex-husband to turn around because she couldn't do it. I'm smiling about it now.

3. I'm competitive. You probably figured that out from #2.

4. I have a dirty mind but don't talk dirty because I don't like crudeness. Well, I don't talk very dirty.

5. When I meet people, they often think I'm more interested in them than I am because I get caught up in their stories and want to know what happens next. When I lose interest, I'm ready to move on. This makes me sound bad but comes from my interest in art, acting, and writing since it's necessary to observe and study people if you're going to draw/paint them, play them, or create characters.

6. I can rationalize just about anything.

7. I'm horrible at impersonating accents, probably because of my lack of musical ability, which is really sad because I know the words to so many songs and wish I could sing.

8. Only a couple of my friends are allowed in my house because of the clutter. I'm too embarrassed to let anyone here and would like for my house to be the way it used to be, so I can have company again. I've been retired almost four years, have had time to do it, so this is crazy.

9. My money is arranged in order by denomination all facing the same direction. I might have a few control issues.

10. A lot of people get on my nerves.

My Honest Blogger Awards go to the ones listed below. I enjoy reading them along with some others that have already been tagged for this. I'd love to read your lists, but don't feel obligated to do this unless you want to. If anyone else does it, please tell me because there are others who also qualify for this. Inquiring minds want to know!

Bob at I Should Be Laughing

I'm also curious about what Marker, Mark, Beth, Rhea, Dan, Jimbo, Linda, Eric, and Debi would have on their lists.


Wonder Man said...

I will do it

Joy said...

Thank you! :-) I'll read it.

#Debi said...

You know, except for our political bents, we could almost be the same person. 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, and 10 are all "me toos".

That bridge/tunnel thingy is just wrong... :)

Miss Ginger Grant said...

I don't like milk either but it doesn't gross me out. But you have to wonder who was the first person to go up under a cow and say "let's pull on these things and drink whatever comes out!" Just think what would have happen if they picked a boy cow instead of a girl- we'd be drinking something totally different! Ewe!

Jeff said...

Ha! We have 4, 6, and 10 in common. I will do this soon as well. Thanks for tagging me! :)

Bob said...

I'm always up for a challenge, Joy, so I'll do it as well.

frogponder said...

milk - my problem is I love it too much!

Sylvia K said...

Thanks for the challenge, Joy, and I'll do it! I'm going to be gone most of the day, but I'll tackle it "honestly" -- I hope -- this evening!

Joy said...

So, Debi, does that mean you don't have a dirty mind or that you talk dirty? ;-) Just had to ask! Btw, I've noticed that about us, too.

Thanks to all of you!

Pseudonymph said...

I crunch cereal too! Or have it with fruit. Drinking a milky branny soup for breakfast is gross. We should form some sort of secret society...

Rhea said...

OK, I'll play along. Come on over to see my answers.

#Debi said...

Joy, I've been told before that I do have a dirty mind. I prefer to think that I channel the 12-year old boy in me sometimes...and yes, I have talked dirty, but discriminately. One must know one's audience... ;)

Sam said...

I love milk. to bad I was going to stop by and buy us a tall glass of something cold. Who knew you had a dirrtty mind?

逆援助 said...

セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
