Meme Results: Truth or Lie

Okay, so I posted this on Sunday. Out of these seven items, one is true. You took a guess. Here are the results:

1. I wrote a screenplay adaptation of A Separate Peace when I was in college and it was optioned, but never made into a movie.

I did write a screenplay, but it was never optioned.

2. Steve Martin asked to borrow my toothpaste when he was filming The Jerk on location.

He borrowed my shampoo, not my toothpaste. Strawberry Suave to be exact.

3. I was a witness to two murders when I was 5-years-old.

I was a witness to one murder when I was 5-years old. Not two.

4. I failed Geometry two times and had to have a 13-year-old tutor me when I was a high school senior.

I failed ONCE and got a D the second time. My tutor was 13 and I was mortified.

5. I was a tour guide for Universal Studios Hollywood.

Nope. Didn’t even audition. Although I really, really wanted to.

6. I planned a big wedding and then ended up eloping after it got too stressful.

TRUE. After too much drama with my parents The Hub and I went to Vegas. We still had some family there as my husband shared the info with his family and friends. When we got home, we had a nice reception.

7. I climbed Half Dome.

I’m sort of insulted that no one guessed this. I mean, come on…I am an example of physical fitness. Not! However, I was at one time. I trained all year and three weeks before the big event, some of the bones in my foot began to fracture. Long story, but as it turned out, it was the beginnings of Lupus.

Diane and Kathy and Lisa guessed correctly!

The Creative Writer Blogger Award

Diane of Bibliophile by the Sea has given me an award.  Many times bloggers are asked to share some little-known or not so little-known facts about yourself. I don’t participate in many memes but this Bald Faced Liar…whoops….”Creative Writer” award sounds like harmless fun.

I like guessing games as much as the next person so here’s what this is all about.
1. Thank the person who gave this to you. ( Thanks Diane!)
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell us up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5. Allow your readers to guess which one or more are true.
6. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies. (I will skip this)
7. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate. (Skipping this too)
8. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them. (You guessed it!)

The 7 items that I have listed below contain  (6) untruths and (1) absolutely true statement. I make no promises that the 6 don’t include some part of truth. Guess which one is absolutely true. I’ll share the answer tomorrow. Hope you enjoy and feel free to speculate as much as you like. Now to the tall tales or not…

I apologize for the spacing. For whatever reason I could not get the spacing right even after tweaking the code.
