An award.... of sorts

I won an award from my friend (some award!). It's basically a tag, but it sounded interesting so here I go (coming up with honest things to tell).

Here's the scoop...
1.Choose a minimum of 7 blogs and show the 7 winners' names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap", the nifty icon they can display proudly on their blog.
3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

here's my honest scrap:

1. I lived in Scotland with my family when I was 7 and I wore a black and orange stripped tie with a grey jumper to school which I thought was hideous because it didn't match.
2. I didn't like wearing tennis shoes because I thought they made my feet look fat. So I wore boots or sandals or jellies, anything but tennis shoes. I finally got over my terror of tennis shoes a couple of years ago, and own a pair that are nice to work out in and wear with jeans.
3. I was in the pit orchestra in high school playing the violin for our school musical. This meant I got to have an exchange student from London stay with me, and then go to London the next year to perform our musical. It was totally awesome to travel with my friends on a trip that wasn't a family vacation.
4. I have been robbed in Honduras at machete point, and I have had two apartments broken into which resulted lost property.
5. I have eaten a chicken guacamole sandwich in Mexico.
6. I don't like to have my hair shorter than my shoulders because it gets to big and poofy, but I forget this fact every couple of years and let a hair dresser cut it to my chin because they say it will be cute, and then I spend the next year clipping it back with little clips trying to get it to grow out and be less poofy.
7. I do not have a middle name.
8. My first job was working at Brueggers Bagel. I did not enjoy the part where I had to stand outside and hold the sign to get people to come into the store.
9. I love milk. I will order milk at a restaurant if I haven't had my glass for the day. This was especially funny to do in St Louis where I ate out for every meal, and waiters do a double take when you order milk.
10. I have always wanted to have red hair because it seemed more glamorous than blonde. So I finally got the guts up to dye my hair 2 years ago, and I really enjoyed it, but then decided it wasn't worth keeping up. But those are by far my favorite pictures of myself.

perks of being my best friend for the last 20+ years :) It might have been funner to have you say 10 honest things about me :)
