honest to God

Because Peenee has tagged me with an "Honest Blogger" meme, I need to write "ten honest things" about myself. I think I've written about 500 already, but hey, what's eleven more? Here goes:

1. I don't much like bluntness or honesty, actually, but I can be both when I get really mad. That's never a good thing.

2. I failed remedial algebra twice before I managed to get into real algebra, which I then failed.

3. Three of my favorite foods are cheese, bread and tomatoes, and yet I don't like pizza.

4. I'm a christian, but a bit embarrassed by that fact.

5. Three words I always misspell: embarrassed, parallel, weird.

6. I wish this blog were better.

7. I spent much of my childhood climbing trees, making up stories in my mind about fantasy lands. If I could get back up in a tree today, I think I would.

8.I was notorious in school for not reading having read the novel, but still getting an A.

9.I often find myself envying couples shopping together,
even when they're bickering.

10. I bite my nails when I'm bored or nervous (in other words, all the time).

11. I come from a long line of criminals.

so what is the matter with the blog?
What do you mean by you want it better?
It is "you", is it not is it not?

I like it as it is - and you.

I KNEW we were related.

As Fran Leibowitz said, "Stand firm in your refusal to remain conscious during algebra. In real life, I assure you, there is no such thing as algebra."

I failed algebra, too! Which is how I knew that, like Susan Kohner in "Imitation of Life," I was really white, white, WHITE!!!. 'Cause, you know, Asians are s'posed to be good at math and stuff.

Miss J enjoys Jason's blog. And his truth.

I have to agree with Ur-spo. Your blog's about you, for the most part, and I like that. Just stick with what's working. :)

I tutored algebra. What a shame we didn't go to school together.

if you climb trees after a certain age it becomes quite sad and dangerous, because those hip bones snap like twigs.

I am the same with a childhood in trees, being bad at algebra, and your oft-misspelled words. I am the opposite about pizza!

Unfortunately I always misspell unfortunatley...I'm so glad you visited my blog. You are darling!
