Honest Scrap

Tara tagged me for the "Honest Scrap Award."

So, what does this award mean? It means – “leftovers, fragments, discarded material, and many times truth and honesty is discarded material, considered fragments and left over.” We tell it like it is and let the scraps fall where they may.

The honorees are to:
a) first list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
b) pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

1. While I'm totally attached to my computer, some of my best writings came to life in my spiral notebook while I was drinking coffee at a coffee shop.

2. I'm not a fan of talking to people on the phone. I'd rather text message or instant message. It gives me a moment to put my thoughts together.

3. As much as I talk about my love of coffee and coffee-related things, I'll choose a cuppa hot black tea with milk over a cup of coffee almost 100% of the time.

4. I have a long memory. This is good and bad depending on whether you're on my own personal "naughty or nice" list.

5. I will admit I'm like my mom in a lot of ways, but there are times when I find myself acting like my dad in freaky ways (like both of us choosing to wear navy slacks, black shoes, shade of blue sweaters for Christmas).

6. I lay awake at night and worry about what I'd do if certain people in my life died.

7. I believe in ghosts.

8. Even though I've played violin for over 22 years, my classical music knowledge is beyond poor. I wouldn't recognize most famous violin concertos if I heard them.

9. I love mysteries, especially British/UK mysteries, but have never read Agatha Christie.

10. I like say I'm a "realistic Democrat," meaning I'm a fiscal conservative with socially liberal views. Balance the budget and legalize gay marriage.

Tags? You're it. I'm feeling lazy today.

Ten Little Indians, or And Then There Were None. I have read it at least a dozen times and it still makes prickles in my spine.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

Bloggery (a repost)

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
