A few weeks ago F.B. over at The Change I Wish to See gave me an Honest Scrap Award and like a total flake I have neglected to pass it on. I am supposed to tell you 10 honest things about me and the pass it along to 10 other bloggers. I will stick with the ten things about me (consider it 2 lists of 5) and pick five other bloggers who I think have written about some really honest stuff.
-I believe in second chances, Lord knows I have needed enough of them.
-I believe that there is a difference between yams and sweet potatoes and I believe I can tell the difference.
-I believe in public radio.
-I believe that coffee should be consumed hot, strong and black.
-I believe that when it comes to family, I hit the in-law jack pot.
-I believe that the people you spend time with say a lot about who you are. For this reason I avoid; hypocrites, homophobes, racists, bigots, antisemites and anyone who feels they need to put others down to make themselves feel or sound better. It is not that I don’t believe some of these people can be nice or interesting, I just don’t ever want to pick those traits up.
-I believe apologies should only be issued if they are sincere.
-I believe in dictionaries. I have a 1972 Websters open on my desk every day and keep a pocket one in my purse.
-I believe that gays and lesbians should have 100% equality when it comes to marriage. Not because I am on some sort of gay crusade (although I think if a crusade like this came up, Joan of Arc would be all over it) but because I believe when our forefathers painstaking crafted our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that followed it they took the time to specify the separation of church and state. I believe they meant it.
-I believe that the best way to read the Sunday Times is in bed with a cup of coffee or a bloody mary.
If you want to read some other honest stuff check out these bloggers
Bethis- Beth’s accounts of daily life, friendship and relationships are not only hilarious they are spot on. She is also one of the few people I know willing to post a picture of herself wearing leopard, pleather and boots all at the same time.
La Petite Belle- Carmen has some of the most sincere accounts of marriage and motherhood I have read. She is willing to share the good, the bad and the very funny.
These Little Moments - My dear friend Molly has been bold enough to talk to her readers about the ups and downs of recent unemployment.
Restaurant Refugee- Refugee recently posted about the challenges of remaining anonymous on a blog people love to talk about.
I Got Nothing - Mikes posts about the loss of his brother and his father are loving tributes to their life and the people they have left behind.
