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.

Restaurant Refugee– Refugee recently posted about the challenges of remaining anonymous on a blog people love to talk about.
