The 10 lucky people are:
10: I like twist endings to books and movies. The weirder . . . the better.

9: I have a brother who is 5 years older than me.

8: I have a sister who is 6 years older than me.

7: When I was a kid, I hated to get my toenails clipped. My mother had to hold me down. It wasn’t the fact that I was afraid of clippers. It was just something fun (as in annoying) to do during my childhood.

6: It’s been over 3 years since I sketched something. I’m an untrained artist.

5: I’m currently working on a special writing project with the help of a dear friend. My memoir.

4: I’m afraid of heights, mostly elevators and second floor malls. I had dreams of being pushed over the railing or having the cable snap.

3: I enjoy watching Japanese Anime movies not only because of the involved plot, but also for the artistry.

2: The neighbor’s German Shepherd bit me when I was 8.

1: Once, I almost got into a fist fight with my brother’s neighbor over something HE said that was unrelated to me. Worse, this woman once beat up a girl scout mother and had to be police escorted from a hair salon.

Here’s my list of the 10 things true about me that other people might not know.
5. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.

4. Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award.

3. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.

2. The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows.

1. “The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared!

Here are the rules in accepting this award:

I was given an award by Funny Girl from “Funny Girl Goes Blog.” Thank you. I appreciate this award. Yet I wanted to do something different with the acceptance of it - something that screams, “OH, GAWD! Please get this woman a straitjacket and pack her up in the rubber room.” So I’m making this entire blog post backward. Enjoy!


  1. Oh Michelle! Thanks so much for the award. And it means a lot to me that it came from you. You have always been one of my favorite post writers, and you always will.

    Thank you again!

  2. peachy keeno, michelle... and thx

  3. Love the backwards post! Thanks for the award. It's nice to be thought of as honest.

  4. .again this do to endeavor to have now will i me as weird certifiably as obviously are you because but times 10 to close probably meme this on variation a done have i. think i...thanks

  5. wow. you've been back! will have to check out more of your recent entries later.

    Thanks for the award! lol. this will take some thought. The backwards posting is a fun idea. can't wait to see the memoir!

  6. Michelle, thanks so much for the award ! You're awesome! We're packing up and getting ready to hit the road again tonight but will be answering those questions as soon as we get some downtime.

    Take care !

  7. Congrats on your award, and thanks for sharing it with me!

    Hope your Labor Day was, well, drudgery-free. :)

  8. Hey everyone, You're all so very welcome. I love all your blogs!

    !too welcome you're, Lime for As

    Hope everyone's Labor Day was a relaxing one.

  9. Thats so original and funny. Backwards post. Of course, if you really wanted to do it backwards, you would force everyone to read it through a mirror :) Anyway, thanks for the award and congrats on receiving it yourself. Nice job.

  10. Aw, shucks, Michelle. . .

    I'm honored. I really am.

    I almost never do memes, and please don't think I'm being surly (HAH! Get it? 'surly'? 'Cuz, like, your blog is called 'The Surly Writer'? Sometimes I slay myself. . .) if I don't get around to it. . .

    Until I do, I'm hoping you will please understand. . . (HAH! 'Michelle' lyrics, get it?)

    And here is a little somethin'-somethin' to tide you over in the meantime. . . (aside from being 3.5 years old, it's still pretty much all good). . .

  11. Eric: I considered writing it completely backward. But I didn't want to be responsible for property damage in case people read my blog at work and decided to rip out the company mirrors in restrooms.

    Desmond: Usually, I skip out on them too. Besides, I think that post you linked too more than fulfils the rules of the meme.

  12. Congratulations to all the award winners!! :-)

  13. You can't see me right now, but I'm mooning you.

    Oh, wait a minute... Since you did the post backwards, I wanted to be clever and do something backwards, too. So, actually, I'm just smiling broadly. Sorry!

  14. Demon Hunter: Hey, thanks for stopping by!

    Suldog: And he says I'm demented. HA! Well, I'm giving you a special "smile" right back.

  15. hey, ye never even read my post onnit :(

  16. Laughingwolf: I did in my reader. I simply haven't had the time to commit these past few days.
