A Good Day for Liars
I promise that the ignorance will be on display again shortly. But thanks to a meme from Kathleen Kirk of Wait!I Have a Blog?!, instead, I have a quiz for you. Which of these five statements is true? (There is only one.)If you want, you can post your answer below. If you already know the answer, as some of you might, please try to leave some room for guessing. All will be revealed before I put up the next post.
A. I once spent a long night at the police station after what began as an innocent evening of T.P.ing got a little out of control.
B. My great-great-great uncle is Alexander Graham Bell.
C. During a stay in Paris, I had a brief but tempestous fling with a French mime. It ended with my departure from the City of Light, due to lack of communication.
D. At one point in my checkered past, I was a member of an international smuggling ring.
E. I have a Swiss bank account, for reasons you don't need to know about.
To complete the meme, I must tag five others, and this is always difficult, as I'd hate to give anyone a sense of obligation about the whole thing. Still, it is a form of publicity, so try and look at it that way, and only do this if it sounds fun...in fact if I didn't tag you and it sounds fun, let me know, and I'll pass it along here.
1. Link back to the blogger who awarded you.
2. Display the graphic from the award creator.
3. Post five facts, four of which must be lies and
4. Pass the award to five other bloggers who should follow these rules.
Tagged, then, are
I. Leslie's eat.sing.ride where she talks about all of these aspects of her multi-faceted life and which she's currently 'broadcasting' from Hawaii.
II.Inspirations from Glenna, who seems very serene for a gun-tottin', dog lovin' PTA mom from Texas, and who I think writes excellent book reviews.
III. Sean Patrick Reardon's Mindjacker blog. Sean's been lying a bit low at the moment, so I hope all's well with him in the chilly east, and that he's just holed up working on his next novel.
IV.Absolutely*Kate's At the Bijou. A*K and I have gotten to know each other a bit lately through taking part in various story challenges that have come our way, largely through the above mentioned Mr. Reardon. She may be too busy running the Fab Feb Film Fest over at her place to take part, but you should check it out. She's got a swingin' Valentine's Day tale up right now.
V.Finally, I'll tag a blog that's new to me since the holiday season, Jen's Book Thoughts. Jen was my not so secret Santa at a bloggers holiday exchange, and boy did I rake in the loot. Jen likes crime. Lots and lots of crime. Crime readers of the female persuasion particularly should check out her "Most Wanted" wall.
