Honest Scrap Award

Honest Scrap award.

Honest Scrap award.

Thanks to my buddy Polycarp for bestowing upon me the Honest Scrap Award. It reminds me of a facebook game that was going around some time back, but this is thankfully much shorter. The rules are simple, reveal 10 honest things about yourself and tag seven bloggers to do the same.

  1. I am one of the world's worst procrastinator. I've been working on trying to fix this, but it's taking a lot longer than I thought.
  2. Before my wife and I were married, I fired her. She worked in my office when she was in college, and I gave her the choice of continuing to work for me or date me - she obviously made the right choice (or working for me was so bad that dating me was a better option).
  3. I think Diet Coke is the "dew of heaven."
  4. I am an intensely private person, but I write for the whole world to read. Figure that one out.
  5. My CNN addiction ended on my wedding day. Now it's only reality television...just kidding. Who said men don't change?
  6. I really, really wanted to go to law school, but I never really wanted to be a lawyer.
  7. I won my first criminal jury trial ever. My client was charged with assaulting a police officer, and I wasn't exactly sure how we were going to pull it off. But, the jury found my client "not guilty." Later, one of the jurors told me I shouldn't be defending criminals, which is a little presumptuous, seeing as how they acquitted him. Later still, I ended up marrying the niece of the police officer's sister. I know it sounds confusing, but it really isn't: the cop's sister is married to my wife's uncle. I trust all is forgiven by now.
  8. I spent over a year studying Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew and the ancient Hebrew pictographs, its symbolism and extra-textual meaning. I think it is the greatest sentence ever written.
  9. When we rent movies, we rarely ever agree on which to rent, so we rent multiple and then draw to determine the order in which we will watch.
  10. My favorite television show of all time is Seinfeld, currently it is Deadliest Catch.

I tag HiScrivener, Gary, Bitsy, Jeff (come on, Jeff, play this one), Esteban, Vee, and Matt.
