A few things about me

Honest Scrap Awards


Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed readers of this blog, I would like to thank you all for reading this blog and for having kept up with me for the past 3 years and 2 or so months. I would espeically like to thank the lovely and forever young Mwari  for having bestowed this honour on me.

The rules:

1. You must brag about the award
2. You must include the name of the blogger who bestowed the award on you and link back to the blogger
3. You must choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. ( ati 7.. I cannot oblige seeing that everyone that I would choose has alread been chosen)…let me think more maybe I will come up with a few
4. Show their names and links and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog.
5. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on

The ten:

  1. I am a borderline addicted to…….I will not teeellll! In a way I kinda understand druggies and alcoholics but because I am ruthlessly cruel with myself and my habit, I am not completely sympathetic. It is tough shit trying to kick a habit and be able to say I kicked that. The longest I have gone has been about 1 year 8 months then bang!  my demons were back with a vengence and I was like.. where the fuck did that come from I had it under control.  Of late, witth regards to my “almost addiction”  I have been in battle mode. It sucks.. it’s part of me, it’s my beast and so I embrace her and say.. “hello darling.. let’s see who will win this one this time round”
  2. I am actually a very happy, cheerful, funny person to be around despite what this blog depicts. I know and have always known that I write most when I am feeling crap, conflicted, down, depressed etc. I have tried more than a hundred times to do posts/ blog when I am in a “good space” and I just cannot do it. The words to not flow and I am not in flow. Negative emotions get my writing to flow.. happy ones .. well…
  3. I am currently reading “The Road Less Travelled” by M. Scott Peck and marvelling at the fact that I did not pick this book up earlier. First time I read it I was about 18/19 and didn’t quite finish it leave alone understand it. As far as self help books go, this is the mother of them all and believe me I have read a gazillion of them (back in the day…these days can’t bring myself to read one).
  4. If I love you, I wil talk about you a lot. As a result my conversations are peppered with Big Al said, Nikh the bandit did this the other.
  5. I have a sock fetish that is not yet fully fulfilled.
  6. This one is for all the ladies who are trying to get babies and it is not happening.  I have already said it here that I need some medical help  to get pregnant. So listen up. If your p’s are irregular and you haven’t been getting pregnant, you need to see a hormone specialist(endocrinologist) and have your hormones checked out. If you need more info contact me and I will give details.  I will still need to get treatment in order to get pregnant again. It’s nothing extreme like fertility treament but at the same time, for me, getting pregnant is not simply a matter of getting laid. (so if you plan on having or want kids and you have the man in tow, you need to get to it pronto.. stop waiting)
  7. My current inspiration in all things weight and fitness is Amy. I have been following her since mid last year. This is what I mean
  8. I am back running after an almost 5 month break. It is so annoying how quickly one looses fitness.
  9. I’m struggling here… oh.. I .. something to do with youth envy.
  10. .. you tell me!

Been trying to upload something.. will it work, will it not.

    Hi Mrembo

    No. 1 – I can identify with.
    “hello darling.. let’s see who will win this one this time round” LOL – now that is winner

    No. 4 – I do that too.

    No. 6 – I can see it is a very good to know you in the blogoshere. 🙂

    Have a good week!

    I had a good one.. hope you had one too 🙂

  2. sasa mrembo,
    Good to see you obliged! and thanks for the accolades…blushing

    Interesting read.

    No. 2. I am the opposite. I find it difficult to write the hard stuff. Usually, I will write when I have overcome the difficult stuff but in the thick of things, I am usually too busy putting out fires or fighting, or just trying to overcome. But once i have overcome, I will stand on mountain tops and tell “write”

    No. 8. Me too! I have six kilos that won’t leave me alone. It was okay in the winter when I could hide them with a kabuti 🙂 but now I feel them. I had started walking but my schedule has been interrupted and I am unable to start again. Meanwhile I pretend that the kilos are not there.

    This weight thing is my current “obessession of the moment”. Yani I have it bad… and yes I don’t have that much to loose but would you believe my BMI is 24.59, which is a problem to me because anything over 25 is considered overweight. So I am like, I want to get my BMI to 20-22. However when I compute the figures and find out what I will have to weigh… I begin to believe an article I read some time back that this BMI stuff is not accurate for Black people.
    My current weight is 76.6 or 168.8 giving me a BMI of 24.2
    To achieve a BMI of 22 I will have to weigh 70 Kgs or 154 pounds and that is really really small. (but I guess I have to see it to judge it.. I last weighed 73 kgs in about 2002 and I must add I think I used to look very supuu 🙂 so maybe 70kgs is not so small… ama 🙂

    I am as tall as Tyra and she has gained some weight.. when her show first started she was weighing in at around 68-70kgs.. then when she put on the weight and there was a whole hulla ballu about it she was about 75kgs.. though she was lying saying it was less. Anyway, when I look at how small she was then, I am like.. “salala.. is that how small I have to get to achieve that BMI.. still thinking about it.

    I could go on and on about this weight thing.. like I said.. it is my “obessions of the mo!

    Good luck with yours and don’t give up! I’m not 🙂
