*The first question out of my mouth was "What the hell is a GaGa pit?" And if you are like me - and really would like to know...it is a modified ball pit. Why GaGa? Don't know. Maybe they think that calling a parent to tell them their kid hurt herself playing in balls in innapropriate. Don't know.
Seriously, I get a call a day from this camp. "Hi, this is Camp YadaYada - Emily' jaw hurts." " Is this Swirl Girl? Emily stepped on a dead bee" "Hello Swirl Girl - Emily's fine, but I just wanted to call and say Hi"
They just called, by the way, and she is indeed okay. Took off the splint and is happy as a clam revelling in all the "are you okay's?" from her friends and basking in the "you're a trooper!" from the councellors. Phew- I wasn't looking forward spending the afternoon in the ER. I've got shit to do.
Here's the shit I've got to do. I need to acknowledge a few fellow Bloggy buddies for thinking good things about me.
JenJen from Jen's Voices bestowed two awards upon me. Two- count 'em two awards. First of all - she thinks I am A Good Read. JenJen is a fairly new blogger - and I welcome her to the fold. Thanks JenJen!
Secondly - both JenJen and Dianne from Contentedly Neurotic ( i love the name of this blog) sent me the Honest Scrap Award. Which I think is totally funny 'cuz if you say it over and over again really fast sounds completely different (hence the title of this post). This one comes with rules. Shit. I am not in the rule following mood. I've got shit to do.
Here are the rules:
1. “The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared!
2. First, the recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows.
3. Second, the recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.
4. Third, those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given with this award.
5. Those 10 bloggers that receive this award should link back to the blog that awarded them “The Honest Scrap’ award.
I think by the very definition of this award - if I am Honest Scrap - there are not many things you all don't know about me already.
I've mentioned peculiar quirks about myself.
I've done the 100 things about myself.
I've gotten the Q and A and A'd the Q's.
I've admitted my addictions.
I think all that shit adds up to way more than 10 honest things about me.
So now - I have to pass it on. I want to pass it on to Aunt Becky at Mommy Wants Vodka, Em over at Life Liberty and the Pursuit, Trooper Thorn over at Dogs and Jeans, C over at The Scattered Mind of A Tattooed MiniVan Mom, Kevin over at Always Home and Uncool. These guys and gals always keep me laughing and thinking. Plus - they read my honest crap fairly regularly...so they will come by and pick up their awards and probably follow the rules better than I did 'cuz they are good citizens and not a slacker like me.
This is getting to be linky hell, folks. I'm only doing 5 for now. I've got shit to do.
Swirl Girl is nothing else if not Honest. Crap.
