Sleepwalking with Scissors

The ever pithy and wise Dawn from Newfoundland (the girl cracks me up) writes a blog called Twisted Sister. I don't know why it's called such. I don't think she's "twisted" at all but
I'm way behind on acknowledging awards and tagging. I apologize and promise to do better.
I appreciate all of them very much!

Dawn has bestowed upon me the Honest Scrap Award and I thank her sincerely. She writes.... "The Honest Scrap award comes with a caveat or 2. Firstly you have to tell your readers 10 things about you they may not know, but that are true. Secondly you have to tag 10 people with the award."

Thinking....thinking.....ten MORE things that people don't know about me? I spend my life trying to be incognito on the Internet and you want more? And they have to HONEST? Ok. Ok. But I'm not happy about this. You said I had to be honest, Dawn, not cheery.

Ten More Mundane, True, and Unnecessary Pieces of Minutiae About Mimi Queen of Memes

1. I sleepwalk.
My latest faux pas? I put my cellphone in a cereal bowl in the middle of the night.

2. I can't stand it when someone opens and closes scissors and they scrape together. Ewwww!!! Like fingernails on a chalkboard.

3. I once saw a Ghost. Or two. In fact, they were together.
(They're probably divorced by now....bwwahhaa)

4. I realized recently that I drink coffee for the warmth of my hands around the cup, not the caffeine.
It's familiar comfort.

5. I worry about stupid things many minutes have I had my cellphone attached to my ear and was it enough to give me cancer??!

6. I'm trying to hire a new housekeeper. The last one broke things all over the house, "lost" things, chipped antique articles and set off the fire alarm while dusting. And that was only her first day on the job. This time I'm looking for a male housekeeper.....hmmm....! What a great idea! I'm so glad I did this meme! It has opened up my thinking processes. What shall we name him? Mimi's Hired Hunk? Sven?

7. I truly hate NASCAR but I love love love to drive.

8. I hyperventilate when I have a shot or have blood drawn. Have been known to flat pass out I can't even watch someone else being stuck with a needle. I'm such a baby.

9. I make up my bed as soon as I get out of it - except when I'm sleepwalking.
Go figure.

10. My IQ is ridiculously high in the Abstract Thinking category. This explains why I can envision a global peace plan but can't find my car keys.
11. I am not a "cat person" unless you belong to the Cat Blogosphere - then I adore you. And I'm beginning to think Homer is real.

I royally tag.....

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

You're funny even when you're not cheery :)
#5 Cracked me up... and you need to discuss that ghost with butterfly girl... she's seen a thing or two... not kidding.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Congrats on the award! It's funny that we received it the same day and got around to it on the same day! Oh, and go for a hot housekeeper...

Julie said...

Your brain...I love it! Scattered thoughts and tattered emotions? The coffee mug thought made me smile. So true-so true! I wonder about my left ovary as I pocket my cell over it. I make my bed immediately too!

Yikes! I'm tagged?

Southern (in)Sanity said...

What? You hate NASCAR?!?!?!??!!?

I can't possibly visit this blog anymore. What an absurd statement.

Hate NASCAR?!?!?!?!?!? Sheesh.

Just kidding.

Charles Gramlich said...

Warm hands, warm heart? is that what they say?

Nascar? Is that like nasa with cars?

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Why, thank you. What did she see? I wanna know!

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Imagine that. Great minds. Congrats!

But I'm upset that nobody gave me a Sexy Blogger Award.

Mimi Lenox said...

Julie- Thou art tagged. You're one of the most honest people I know.

Mimi Lenox said...

Southern - It kind of goes along with the first-husband-divorce-syndrome. NASCAR reminds me of husband-divorce!! YUK YUK YUK. (long story)

They go fast. People wreck. They get hurt. People cheer. I don't get it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - Perfect! Nasa with cars...I love it!

An Eerie Tapestry said...

I hate needles too. Although I always leave my bed unmade (maybe I should start sleepwalking and see if that fixes things). Thanks for tagging me, which reminds me that I gave you an award last week for having a cool blog and forgot to mention it.

The Gal Herself said...

All the best people hate NASCAR (and we know who we are). Thank you for the award, and I have meme'd.

Akelamalu said...

I like the 10 things about you!

I did this meme just last week. :)

Mojo said...

Homer is real! Aren'tcha Homer ol' buddy.

Bond said...

pssst...I have your keys

Tarheel Rambler said...

I know Dawn too, and she is a little twisted...but in the most adorable way.

Since you hate NASCAR, I guess that explains why there were no comments from you after I posted all my pictures from the NASCAR shops. I think you would change your tune if you watched a race with the right person. :0)

And since this is my first visit in a while, I was pleasantly surprised to find you included me in the tag. I knew there was a reason I felt compelled to visit today. :0)

Autumn said...

I hadn't thought of that about drinking coffee. I adore my caffeine & often the flavor of good coffee, but holding a warm cup does do an awful lot for me!

Travis said...

Be careful now. I think that you can be legally exiled from the south if it gets around that you don't like NASCAR.

Mimi Lenox said...

Eerie - And who, in their right mind, would LIKE needles? Hmmm?

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - You are welcome. You meme'd well!

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - You are such a true friend you'd say you liked my 10 things no matter what I said. You sweet woman you!

Homer The Palace Dog said...

Mojo - Finally! Someone who loves me!

(Did you know the Queen is crazy??)

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - Bring 'em back!! Just 'cause you're gettin' married and carrying on with all that romance on your blog does not give you the right to cause me grief!

You're going to the dungeon, Buster.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lee - Where have you beeeennn??! Dawn is adorable. Very much so. did see that post of yours and I thought I commented. I have an interesting story about the racing world and how my family connects to it in an unusual way. I'll tell ya later!

I've missed you!

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - My caffeine intake is strictly psychological. For sure.

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Oh, I hope so....

Ricardo said...

I will get to work on it.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo - Look forward to it!

Through Thick and Thin said...
