To Tell The Truth (Volume IV)

My mind's a complete blank. It happens from time to time. What does that mean to you? Reader participation time!! Of the following ten "facts" only three are entirely true. You pick the right ones, you get a prize (generally in the form of a good Cactus-approved mix CD - and yes, Judy, this means another on top of what I owe you). In the event of a tie, the first correct responder will be the winner. Here goes...

1:My first car was a Jeep Wagoneer with the fake wood crap on the sides. It was demolished when I rear-ended an optometrist, of all people. The first thing he did was jump out of the car, hand me his card and ask if I had problems with my eyes.

2:The first album I ever bought was Tears For Fears' Songs From The Big Chair. I was bummed though - it didn't actually have the song "The Big Chair" on it but I did manage to find it on the b-side of a single.

3:Before I started college, I was determined, like about half the incoming freshman class, oto be a psychology major. That quickly changed and I became a history major instead.

4:When I was a little kid, I had a bizarre fascination with the television show Dance Fever. More than once, my parents walked into the living room and found me trying out some of the moves.

5:In junior high school someone dared me to try out for the pep squad. The only requirement was that you had to wear the outfit (meaning the skirt). So I did. I didn't make it past the first cut.

6:I got really, really drunk before going to my college orientation. I remember nothing.

7:In addition to the blog, I keep a paper journal to record my thoughts. Some of these things end up on the blog, others don't. I've been keeping a journal for years.

8:Of the many places I've traveled, my return to Argentina (where I was born) was possibly the most interesting. Of course, this was before the economy collapsed and Argentina became the biggest Dot-Bomb ever.

9:I have been under the protection of bodyguards.

10:I still have my original Atari 2600...and it still works. Sadly, I only have a few games left but I'm always scouring Ebay for more.

Ok, I'll bite.........I'll say #3, #6 and #10.

Posted by: Julie at November 30, 2004 09:09 AM

Hmmm. . .1, 3 and 10. *Waiting for the siren and buzzer*

Posted by: Colby at November 30, 2004 09:18 AM

Posted by: Jennifer at November 30, 2004 09:18 AM

I'll say 2, 6, and 8.

Posted by: lady jane at November 30, 2004 09:24 AM

You've been under the protection of bodyguards? This warrants an explanation for sure!

Posted by: Kristi at November 30, 2004 09:27 AM

Here's my try:

#3, #5, and #6

Posted by: Jon in Michigan at November 30, 2004 09:38 AM

I'm guessing 2, 3 and 10.

Posted by: bad penguin at November 30, 2004 09:45 AM

i'm gonna say, #2, #5, & #7.

Posted by: Judy at November 30, 2004 09:48 AM

3,4, and 10?

Posted by: debby at November 30, 2004 10:09 AM



Posted by: bisous at November 30, 2004 10:13 AM

I'm definitely going to take a whack. 3,5, and 10. Okay, where's my prize LOL.

Posted by: Randi at November 30, 2004 10:15 AM

crap, i was going to say 3, 4 and 10. So I'll change it to 4, 9 and 10.

Posted by: laura at November 30, 2004 10:26 AM

#2, 7, & 10.

Posted by: tonya at November 30, 2004 10:43 AM

I think it is 2, 3, and 10 as well. Although I bet either 8 or 9 are right because well you are you.

Posted by: goodsnake at November 30, 2004 10:46 AM

2 5 and 9

Posted by: Amy at November 30, 2004 11:21 AM

2, 4, 6

But if 9 is true, please, please tell the story.

Posted by: Bond Girl at November 30, 2004 11:50 AM

Haha! I'm so horrible at these things. But I'm going with 1, 3, 5, 7, 8 @ 10. Are we only limited to 3 answers? Oh well. :)

Posted by: groovebunny at November 30, 2004 11:51 AM

I dont know you from Adam, but I'm going with 7, 10, and 3. Interesting to IMAGINE they are all true (since I'd never know)...

Posted by: Lily at November 30, 2004 11:52 AM

#3, #8, & #10

Posted by: keepergirl at November 30, 2004 12:12 PM

I apologize now.
Nyquill takes away my ability to think and respond coherently.
Although, I enjoyed reading, I remember nothing at this time...
I will get back to you when the meds have worn off and my head is unclogged...

Posted by: Jade at November 30, 2004 12:14 PM

I really want 4, 5, and 10 to be true. Those just paint a really great story.

Oh, and my first accident? I rear-ended A PRIEST. I think I just bought my ticket to Hell, right there.

Posted by: bmh at November 30, 2004 12:15 PM

My guess is:

2, 6, 10.

I wanna win! I never win anything!

Posted by: PinkStiletto at November 30, 2004 12:24 PM

Hmm. I'm liking 2, 7 and 10. Hand over the CD, buddy.

Posted by: Heather at November 30, 2004 12:35 PM

i'm going to say 3, 5, 10.. because I reallyreally want #5 to be it. LOL
or maybe 3, 8, and 10.

Posted by: Manda at November 30, 2004 12:38 PM

I am guessing 1, 2, and 3. Yeah? Yeah??

Posted by: supine at November 30, 2004 12:43 PM

I think 4 , 5, and 6 are mostly true. Boring and lacking brain power today. Me, not you.

Posted by: Jazzy at November 30, 2004 12:52 PM

6, 7, 10 Do I win? I need new music!

Posted by: amy at November 30, 2004 01:48 PM

2, 7, & 9
Even if they're not? Bodyguards would be so cool.

Posted by: RockStar Mommy at November 30, 2004 01:48 PM

5, 6 and 9

Posted by: Amber at November 30, 2004 02:01 PM

i'll take #3, #4 and #7

Posted by: monique at November 30, 2004 02:36 PM

9, and I even have a theory behind it, umm and 2 and 7. to which there is no reasoning. I just got sick of staring at them all and wondering. ;)

Posted by: Heather at November 30, 2004 02:56 PM

2, 4, 9.

Posted by: megan at November 30, 2004 03:18 PM

Im gonna say #'s 1, 3, & 5.....Just Cause barely anyone chose the number 1 and it just seems too funny to be true; 3 because who doesnt change their major; 5 because knowing what we all know, only legs like yours, could pull of the skirt look.

Posted by: Dawn at November 30, 2004 04:24 PM

I'll take 5, 7 and 10 please!

Posted by: Sue at November 30, 2004 04:37 PM

I'm going to unglamorously beg for a CD on the grounds that you love music I do. My guesses are:

7 (I don't so SOMEONE must)

Here's to another multiple choice answer I don't think I got right!

Posted by: alektra at November 30, 2004 04:46 PM

3, 4 and 7?

Posted by: Dawn (webmiztris) at November 30, 2004 05:20 PM

am i too late?

i'll guess 7,8 and 10

can i have a cd anyway. puhleeeeease?

Posted by: Granola Spice at November 30, 2004 06:49 PM

My guess: 2, 6, 7

Posted by: Krush at November 30, 2004 08:29 PM

If 4 is true .. I've lost all hope.

Posted by: LOUP at November 30, 2004 08:36 PM

Drawing a complete blank here, although I would not have pictured you as liking dance fever. Do this again in few months and I probably would have a better feel for things :-)

Posted by: csm at November 30, 2004 08:50 PM

I go with 1, 2, 3

Posted by: jessica at December 1, 2004 02:39 AM

5,9,10 ?

Posted by: Paul at December 1, 2004 07:36 AM


Posted by: JuJuBee at December 1, 2004 01:38 PM

2, 3, and 7.

Posted by: Coleen at December 1, 2004 03:17 PM

I'll say 1, 4 and 9...and wasn't it somebody's birthday yesterday?

Posted by: Sheryl at December 1, 2004 04:36 PM

I cannot believe you have a working Atari. You just became the coolest person I know.

Posted by: DeAnn at December 2, 2004 02:30 PM

2, 3, and 10 are my guesses...

Hope all is well. Also - Thanks for the nice comment in my journal. :)
