Lies!!!


Melissa, from Chasing the Dream, passed along the "Creative Writer" Award (thanks Melissa). I have to list six lies about myself and one truth. This was really hard for me. I'm going to pretend it's because of my pure-hearted nature and not because it was easier to think of the lies than an exciting enough truth. So, here goes. Which one do you think is the truth?

1. I take my movies very seriously and if people interrupt something I paid good money for, it makes me angry. At the premiere of Twilight a bunch of people were talking as the movie began. I stood up and yelled, “I waited a year to see this movie so you people better be quiet.” Of course I said it with a smile on my face, but they got the picture.

2. Speaking of Twilight, I bought my daughter the Edward (sparkly) Barbie doll for her birthday. While I was standing in line, having forgotten all about the doll, a magazine with Robert Pattinson on the cover caught my eye. The teenaged boys in front of me said, “You must’ve really liked Twilight.” I said, “Yes, they were awesome books. Did you read them?” They all denied having read them (which the fact that they knew who Edward was makes their claim suspect). After they left, when I went to pay for the items, I realized why they had asked. I was soooo embarrassed.

3. I’m so afraid of heights that in college, a boy took me on a date in the mountains and I had to crawl across a suspension bridge because I couldn’t walk the hundred feet. He found this very amusing.

4. One time we were out of tape and I used Junior Mints to wrap a present for my sister. She thought it was disgusting even after I assured her I didn’t chew them, just smashed them. Junior Mints make very good adhesives. Plus, as a bonus, it made me feel like MacGyver.

5. Speaking of Junior Mints, one time I had such a craving for them that I showed up at the local grocery store five minutes after they closed. The doors were locked, but I knocked and convinced the checker to let me buy some. My dimples come in handy often.

6. At the wax museum in New York, my husband and I got talked into doing the virtual reality Super Man video they try to sell you. A nice crowd gathered around to watch. The whole time I kept asking the lady (as I lay on my stomach with my arms extended) if you could see down my shirt. She assured me she couldn’t. When we were done, we watched the video….you could see down my shirt.

7. I based a character in one of my books on Gary, the snail, from Spongebob. Not the meowing Gary, but the wise, mage, tall, robe-wearing Gary we got to meet when Spongebob crawled into his dream.

Tune in on Monday when I reveal the exciting truth (I'm sure you can't wait). :) I pass this award along to

Tricia -- because stories from her childhood are so funny you'd never believe they were true. I better stop there. Believe me, you wouldn't want to battle Tricia in a guess the lie game.

  1. These are the most convincing lies I have heard in a long time! I'd say the Superman one is true if it weren't so hard to believe they really have a game like that. So I'll settle on Gary the wise sage instead.

  2. I'm going with 6 simply because that would so happen to me--therefore, it probably happened to you. ;) although the junior mints ones were tempting because I know you always keep those handy. :)

  3. Wow, you are fast!

    I have no idea which one is your truth, so I'm going to randomly pick number 2:)

  4. I think you reversed the rules and wrote 6 truths and 1 lie.

  5. What Linda said. I can picture you doing all of those things. I'm going to guess it's the Junior Mints as tape.

    Thank you for the award. Now I have to get crackin' on some believable lies. Yay!

  6. I think it's the heights one, but they're all so great!!

  7. Did you really get them to open up the store just so you could buy Junior Mints? I bet that's a lie because those would have to be pretty amazing dimples.

  8. I'm going with #6 because it's something that could so happen to me!

    However the Junior Mints gift wrapping sounds really funny! I'll have to keep a look out because your lies were really good!

  9. Is it #3? It sounds like something that could really happen. =)

  10. I desperately want this to be a trick question and they're all true!

  11. Number 4! Even if it's a lie, I'm going to try to use Junior Mints as an adhesive the next time I have some.

    I'd beleive they are all true if not for the rules.

  12. lol, these are priceless! I agree with others, I hope they're all true. :) That said, if I had to guess, I'd say #4.

    P.S. Now I totally want to track down the Spongebob episode where we get to see wise, robe-wearing Gary.

  13. Hmmmmm. It's very hard to guess. They are all good stories. I'm going to guess #2, because that's just too funny.

  14. #7?? maybe? I'm thinking #5 is quite probable as well. I just don't know.
