Honest Scrap

Thank you Tabitha, from the Books, Bubs and Writing Blabber blog, for honoring me with the Honest Scrap Award! Tabitha is a sweetheart who has recently written a memoir. Wow, huh? She has alot to offer and I think she’s awesome!

So, I’m supposed to tell you 10 random facts about ME. I don’t know that I have anything you might not know, but I’ll try.

  1. I hate hair that is not attached to a person’s body. It really grosses me out.
  2. I cannot drink after other people, even my husband. The whole backwash thing when the kids were small cured me of that FOREVER!
  3. I cannot watch movies or read books that have demons or satanic themes. I get insanely scared, which is weird, because I have power in me that is greater than them. Maybe it’s because I know they are real that is scares me….hhmmm.
  4. I have scoliosis and wore a big metal back brace in 9th and 10th grade. (Think Joan Cusack in 16 Candles…or was that Pretty in Pink.)
  5. I first spoke with my husband when I was 17 and had just moved to Houston to attend a Bible school. He gave me a dozen roses 2 weeks later on my 18th birthday and we have been together ever since.
  6. Got married at 19 and had my first child at 20.
  7. I love, love, love gummy bears and worms.
  8. I got to meet Frank Peretti on my 30th birthday and got an autographed copy of The Oath.
  9. I can do the robot most excellently.
  10. uummm…I have a pair of Cranky Pants, a pair of Fun Pants, a pair of Lazy Girl Pants, and am seriously looking for some Smarty Pants. (as in, O Wise One kind of pants) I thought about some Snarky Pants, but I tend to wear those under my Crank Pants. 🙂

Please forgive me for not passing this award on. I started back to work today and just didn’t have the time over the weekend to get it all together!

  1. Cute list Sherrinda! Very cool that you got to meet Frank P. 🙂 I'm like you, can't watch horror and I really think it's because I know that stuff is real. I can read fantasy, vampires, but demons… uh, no. Unless it's Peretti. LOL!
    Thanks for sharing all that interesting stuff about you. 🙂


  2. Congrats on the award…you sure are racking them up these days 🙂

    And did I return those cranky pants? I can't remember 🙂

    Good luck on your first day back. We'll miss you being around all the time!


  3. Love it, Sherrinda! And Amen to number one…oh wow, hair is disgusting when it's not attached, most especially when I find it in food or have to pick it up off the drain. I'm actually gagging right now. 🙂


  4. I'm weird about backwash too. I never drink an entire can or glass of anything. I always leave the last little bit and toss it because I once heard the last 10 percent (?) of any beverage is backwash. ICK.


  5. Congrats on your award, Sherrinda. What a fun list.

    I hope your transition back to work goes smoothly. Another summer draws to a close, but look at all you accomplished. You finished your book and edited it. I'm proud of you!


  6. Jessica, I know! I enjoy a good vampire movie, but stuff ike the Exorcist and all those possessed kid movies that are out right now…yikes…totally scary!

    Jody, I will survive.(imagine me singing that chorus daily!)

    Heather, thanks! I feel like I've already told everyone so much about me, it was hard to think of new stuff!

    Jeanette, gummy bears=genious? I had no idea! I must be brilliant by now! 🙂

    Katie, stopppp!! I'm gagging here too! Hair in the drain….arrgghhh! Just wait till your little boy becomes a hairy boy…'nuff said!
