Shirley has graciously given me an award! I say "gracious" with a laugh, because it's the "
As most blog awards go, I am supposed to:
1) Thank the person who nominated you (Thanks Shirley!) and link to their blog. (check)
2) Copy the logo and place it on your blog.(check)
3) Tell 6 outrageous lies and at least one outrageous truth about yourself. (check, see below)
4) Nominate seven other "creative writers" and post links to their blogs. (check, ditto)
5) Leave comments for them to let them know you nominated them! (on my way!)
So I'm going to nominate the following:
Michel at Facts Are Strictly Optional
Otin at Wizard of Otin
Spuds at Carrying a Cat by the Tail
The Pseudonymous High School Teacher
"Middle-aged Woman" at Unmitigated and the Zombie News Network
Captain Dumbass at Us and Them (and the Zombie News Network again!)
and I'm gonna cheat by adding "anyone else who wants to play"!
(Disclaimer: If you really don't want to do this, that's fine, too. I know people are busy. But you all are some of my favorite
Alright. Now for a rousing game of "Truth? or Lie?"
Which of the following are actual true facts about me? Hint: there are three. And the contest part? The first person who responds with all three correct actual true facts about me wins a print of any one of my drawings (from this blog, Etsy or Zazzle) that they want! Yea! (Family doesn't count!)
1: I once won a backstage pass to an Oingo Boingo concert and had my picture taken with Danny Elfman.
2: I got to be part of a crowd scene at the Rocking Horse Bar in Spokane during the filming of "Vision Quest". Madonna sang "Crazy For You".
3: I lived in Frankfurt, Germany for two years, by myself, and worked at a Burger King.
4: I had to be air-lifted off a mountain after a skiing accident that broke both my ankles.
5: I am a direct descendant of Erik the Red.
6: I once got arrested for public intoxication outside of a Journey concert.
7: I'm a speed reader. I once read War and Peace in 20 minutes.
8: I'm color blind.
9: I'm a "night owl", get bad sunburns when I'm exposed to too much sun and am severely allergic to garlic. I think this means I'm half vampire.
I am going to be out of town for a few days, but will be checking in...so I will post the answers once someone guesses the correct ones, or on Sunday if no one has by then. At that point, whoever was closest, wins.
How's that sound?
