Lies, All of It

Today I take a break and do a meme from the very talented and lovely, I imagine, Lauren.

Meme Directions:
Write five things about yourself with only ONE of them being true. The other four are fiction, and everyone else gets to guess which one is not fiction.

1. I made it to the 3rd round of auditions for the second season of The Apprentice. Not enough experience, my Aunt Fanny! No, seriously, I think I didn't get chosen because my butt was too big and my hair was too small.

2. I once had a warrant out for my arrest in the State of Texas. Luckily, I was too smart, fast and tricky for Chuck Norris, the ultimate Texas Ranger, to track me down.

3. I can play 10 instruments (not including the spoons, washboard and my belly button).

4. When I lose weight, the first place I notice it is in my feet. When I gain weight, the tops of them puff up like little hams.

5. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for 3 years and have never used an umbrella here. It's a good thing too, because mine's broken.

Leave your guesses in my comments section and in 24 hours, I'll post the answer.

I don't love tagging people because a lot of people HATE the memes. If you hate the memes, no prob. If you like em, please play along. Here are a few of my newer blogging friends I'd love to hear from:


Anyone else who wants to play, consider yourself tagged. Please let me know and I'll come and guess on your site. This was really fun for me. Me like games.....and cookies....me like cookies too.

I am going to guess number 5.
Probably is number 1 though.

Given your wild and crazy life in high school, I figure it's gotta be number 2. Just remember "The eyes of a ranger....."

Cool, I always love a new meme -- I'll do it sometime today and let you know when I do.

I'm guessing that #3 is true. But this is a toughie.

(runs off to think of true and false facts for my meme)

Can't remember the numbers, but I'm guessing the weight and the feet thing is true. It is for me anyway. :D

I suppose I'll guess #4. No one lies about their weight, right?

By the way, this meme also works as a really funny get-to-know-you game. We've played it a lot in the past, only with 2 truths and a lie - people had to figure out what you were lying about. Tons of fun!

By the way, thanks for tagging me. (Oh and my readership - or commentors, at least - pretty much doubled when you mentioned me on Tuesday. So thanks for that too! :) I'll try to finish it sometime today.

I guess that #4 is the true one.

Alright, it's up. Come on over and check it out.

I'm guessing that number 5 is true...which means you must have days where you look like a drowned rat!

I've gotta go with #2. I've always thought you were smart enough to outwit, out-play and out-last anyone. Oh, wait - that's a different show. We're supposed to be concentrating on Walker, Texas Ranger here.

I'm guessing number 4 is true. It happens to me. I have a wide range of shoes to go with my other 'weight' clothes.

Blogger HLH said...

I wasn't really tagged, but in an atempt to be cool and liked I went ahead and did the new meme too...if anyone wants to look :)

I would be tempted to choose number four, since it somehow seems most plausible (not because I know you, but because I know that happens to some people). But I have a feeling you're trying to trick us! :-) My second guess would be five. After that, it's a tossup.

Blogger Carbon said...

I'm guessing number 3. I can totally see you playing instruments and being in band in high school.

If it's #5, then I'm amazed. Don't you ever leave the house then :)

Blogger Goslyn said...

I'm guessing that it's the one about your feet. Be great if it were The Apprentice one, though.

Thanks for "tagging" me. I feel all special!

Anyhow, I'll have mine up in a few minutes. Come over and take a gander.

#3 is my first pick, #4 is my second

Blogger Linsey said...

Hmmm...I am going to say 4 or 5.

2/10/2006 9:20 AM

Anonymous Lauren said...

My son guesses it's number four 'cause you gave a lot of detail.

My guess is number two. Why? Because it's something a "daring" person would have in their past.

Blogger Tigersue said...

Mine is up. I'm going to guess number 5. How can you carry and umbrella and kids at the same time. I sure can't.
If it is not that one than #4

2/10/2006 10:03 AM

Anonymous Alissa said...

i definitely guess #4

2/10/2006 10:25 AM

Blogger Liz said...

I choose #3 because I remember a post about you and your sisters singing together.

2/10/2006 11:10 AM

Blogger ShelahBooksIt said...

I'm guessing the feet.

2/10/2006 11:19 AM

Blogger Sweet Thing said...

I going to guess five, because that is true about me.

But since you are trying to trick us my second guess is number one, because that seems like something you would try to do.

Blogger ~Jennifer said...

I'm going to guess number 5 because I also live in the Pacific Northwest and never use an umbrella. (Does anyone in this state?)

2/10/2006 11:22 AM

Blogger Jessica said...

I am going to go with number 5. I am cool and I hate using umbrellas, therefore all cool people must hate using umbrellas (I totally get how this logic thing works).

My list is up on my site.

2/10/2006 11:57 AM

Blogger Nutella said...

I know I am probably a little late, but I guess number 1, just because I think you totally could have been on the Apprentice. For reals yo!

My list is up too. Thanks for the fun game!

2/10/2006 12:39 PM

Blogger emlouisa said...

I am guessing #5. It's the most boring one so it's gotta be true.

And yay, I've been tagged! I'll have to do it tonight!

2/10/2006 12:47 PM

Blogger Moonface said...

i'm going to go along with 4, because i associate you with your feet picture. this is a fun meme!

2/10/2006 2:28 PM

Blogger Rachelle said...

I'm going to go with #1, just because that would be cool to internet know somebody who was almost semi famous.

2/10/2006 2:33 PM

Blogger Tigersue said...

Okay now see if I can't get this correct this time!

The one about the umbrella. The first thing I learned when I moved to Tacoma was that umbrellas are apparently banned by law; they are used only to identify tourists who are then steered toward the latte carts and made to down multiple shots of espresso, all for the entertainment of the rain-soaked natives.

Game on, girlfriend.

I'm pulling for the totally random #4.

Mine is up now at my site. I am surprised how hard this one was to do!
