9 truths and a lie
Okay, so I'm a little slow on the uptake here, as this was in a lot of people's journals a while back, but sure me, I've been busy.

So here's the deal: I've listed 10 things below, and one of them isn't true. It's up to you to spot the poser.

Raven (zen_raven), you're not allowed to guess for a little while, you'll probably guess right and spoil it :) Darn you for knowing me so well :)

Anyway, here we go:

1.) One of the records I've recorded has won a Grammy award
2.) On a family vacation to Hawaii, I got sun poisoning the first day there, and spend the next two in the hotel, sick as a dog
3.) I've cooked over a campfire in a bra and shorts in front of 8 15-year-old girls
4.) I've been in an open relationship
5.) I dislike sleeping naked, because I'm a creature of habit
6.) I sleep with a stuffed animal
7.) I learned to read at 18 months, and the first word I read was 'Snoopy'
8.) I am obsessive about my palm pilot and can't go anywhere without it.
9.) The first rock concert I saw was the BoDeans
10.) I'm shy and outgoing; when I first meet someone, I'm awfully quiet and aloof, but when I get to know you, I'm the total opposite

Can you spot the faker?

I guess number 8 is the faker.

Nope, while I refuse to call myself a geek, I am a freak when it comes to my palm pilot, as it has my life (literally the last 2.5 years) on it. :)

You should see me when I corrupt the database -- I did that 2 months ago and almost broke down crying.

I'd guess #1, but I figure it's just there to trick me! So I'll go with #7. :)

Nope, #7 is true, as well. My mom was a big fan of Dr. Spock, and loves to relate the following story:

The scene: I'm in pre-school, playing kickball, and I kick the ball with either my left foot, or my right, depending on which one is in the best place at the time.

One of the teachers comes up to my mom, and says "If you don't work on her choosing one side over the other, it's it's going to cause her to take longer to learn to read."

My mom laughed, and said to the teacher, "Oh, really? So how is it that she's been reading for a year and a half already?"

(damn, I should have put the ambidextrous thing in as one of my 10 things)

We were also at a party for my cousin, and her best friend was there (they've been friends since highschool, etc). Her best friend told my mom that she used to baby sit for me, and it was one of the strangest experiences of her life: "Here I am, and this 4-year-old is reading the newspaper to me!"

I'm going to go out on a limb, here...

... and guess #5, just for giggles. :)

Re: I'm going to go out on a limb, here...

Hee hee hee...

Sorry, that one is true as well! It's boxers and a t-shirt for me, even after being intimate, which is slightly embarassing.

But otherwise I can't sleep!

#9

'cause i remember when we were trying to go see them at soilder field you'd never really heard of them...or was that a different band.

Re: #9

Eek! You are right, but not for the right reasons :)

I *love* the BoDeans; I just didn't get into them until the very end of my Senior year in High School.

My very first concert was Jesus Jones, at the Riv. MMmm what a good concert, and I went with Matthew Shaeffer and my sister; I wish I knew what happened to Matthew, and if his hair is as white as it used to be.

I've been found out!

So, I guess I'll give the stories to the rest of them (those that have them, and that I haven't explained already... :) )

1.) One of the records I've recorded has won a Grammy award

I'm no Christina Aguleira (I can't even spell her name, hah), but I was in a very good children's choir when I was younger, and we sung Carmina Burana under James Levine, which won the Grammy for Classical Recording.

2.) On a family vacation to Hawaii, I got sun poisoning the first day there, and spend the next two in the hotel, sick as a dog

We finally go to Hawaii, and spend the first day outside in the waves and the sun, and who gets sun poisoning? My fair skinned, red-headed sister? No, I do; I'm cooped up inside our hotel room in pain and feeling wretched; I felt so bad because my mom had to stay with me as well.

3.) I've cooked over a campfire in a bra and shorts in front of 8 15-year-old girls

This is one of the more amusing moments in my life, actually. I was a camp counselor for 5 summers. Each week, we'd have a cookout, to give the cooks a break. Well one week, it was about nine million degrees out, and Sheila and I were manning the campfire to make this wonderful dinner called Jungle Stew (next week was hotdog week, alas), which required getting close to the fire to flip aluminum foil wrapped packages of hamburger, potatoes, tomatoes and onions. We were both very attractively streaming with sweat, and looked at each other and said "Screw this," and since we were in a forested area, took our shirts off to finish cooking the food.

... of course about 15 minutes into this, the camp maintenance guy drove by our campsite, and while there were quite a few trees between our fire and the road, there weren't *that* many.

4.) I've been in an open relationship

Yeah, and it was my idea, and I was young, and I don't plan on doing it again. I was seriously involved with someone, to the point of considering marriage, but he was also my first, and I didn't want to get married without knowing what was out there.

I guess everything turned out for the best, but I just don't deal well with having more than one serious affection in my life.


5.) I dislike sleeping naked, because I'm a creature of habit

...explained this.

6.) I sleep with a stuffed animal

He is a brown bear, and his name is, appropriately, "Smooshie", after the consistency of his tummy.

The rest of these I've explained, or in the case of #10, doesn't really need explaining :)
