Honest Scrap

Someone found a nifty jpeg. Now, its a blogger meme.
Someone found a nifty jpeg. Now, it’s a blogger meme.

Ok, I’ve been tagged with this one too (thanks, Drug!) Blogger memes are like chain letters, we keep on forwarding them with no logical reason as to why – but what the hell, I’m game. It’s something to do! Personally, I think about half of my writing is honestly crap, so maybe that’s where it comes from.

“This award is bestowed on a fellow blogger whose blog content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”
So, the rules:
  1. When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real.
  2. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. (Where the heck am I going to find seven untagged bloggers that I frequently read?)
  3. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

So, I’ll start with the victims. If you’ve been nailed already, be proud that more than one person reads your blog. I’m still sitting on 3 readers, myself. (I kid, but we all like the gratification of that silly meter, do we not?)

  • Ardent Defender– I’m glad Galo is back and blogging. If you have a tanky Paladin, this site is a wonderful resource. He’s got so much stuff linked, Google is jealous. Now, if I could just get him to server transfer to Skywall…
  • The Angry Butterfly– I like to see what Neg is up to, and I’m admittedly jealous of her progression (of course I am, I play on Skylawl). I really admire her for sticking to a spec she likes in spite of Ghostcrawler’s shenanigans.
  • Spirit Bond– It takes some reasonable dedication to blog RP stuff. She does it as well as anyone could!
  • Armory Data Mine– Technically a blog, this is some very interesting reading if you haven’t happened onto it before.
  • Hoof ‘n Healz– One of the first Shaman blogs that I read regularly. Hello, daddy – hello, mom – J-J-J-J-J-Jaegerbombz!
  • WoW Twink Info– I hate PvP, but this is almost enough to make me want to try it again. Regardless, it’s a ridiculously good resource.
  • Secret Agent Cat – It takes a bit of gumption to be a Cat Feral. Not only do you have to look at that slack-jawed lion-thing all day, but you have to convince your Raid Leader that you’re more helpful not being a Bear. She pulls it off well.

  So, there’s seven from the community. Harder and harder to find ones that haven’t quit these days! And now for something completely different, 10 things about me:

  1. I’m nearly 34 years old, married and a father of one (so far!)
  2. I refuse to play with anything other than default UI because I’m old and crotchety.
  3. I have 10 toons on Skywall, one of each class. They’re *all* Horde.
  4. Despite that, the first toon I ever rolled was a Gnome Mage. I still have her, she’s like level 12.
  5. My ‘original’ toon was Eltorogrande – because friggin everyone plays Hunters.
  6. I don’t have a single toon with 1000 Honorable Kills, in over 2 1/2 years of WoW. I both abhor and suck at PvP.
  7. I work in the insurance business, night shift. As such, I have ridiculous amounts of free time to write this blog.
  8. I play ice hockey, and have for almost 18 years now. Usually wing or defense.
  9. I once got pulled out of a trunk by US Customs when I was 19, at the Canadian border. It’s a long story, and it involves alcohol. Fortunately, it doesn’t involve arrests.
  10.  I met my wife on the internets, over five years ago. She’s from Spain, but unless you knew that in advance, you can’t tell it on vent (she plays a Mage and an Ele Shammy).

So there you go, a 7-10 split that even Walter Sobchakcould approve of. If I was worried about getting flamed for The Idiots Guide to Resto Shammy Naxx ™, I’d probably better *really* duck and cover for this one!
