I’ve been tagged by Marisa Birns at Out of Order Alice and Jodi MacArthur at Jodi MacArthur – Fiction Writer to receive the Lesa’s Bald Faced Liar “Creative Writer” Blogger Award. I’m honored, I think. Thanks Marisa and Jodi!

But that is not all, there are rules and requirements to earn my award.

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5. Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

I play a game quite often with my third grade book club that I created called, Truth or Trick. The object is to tell a truth or a lie and the group has to vote as to whether you are telling the truth or you are trying to trick them.  I ALWAYS win.

So, do you think you are smarter than a third-grader?

Here are mine…

  1. I have had six of my body parts surgically removed.
  2. I was a high school cheerleader.
  3. I went backstage after a Hall & Oats concert in the 80s and got to kiss John Hall.
  4. I was born in the backseat of a 1959 Rambler Cross Country station wagon.
  5. I am good at firing an M-16.
  6. I once spent the night sleeping in the streets of Veracruz, Mexico.
  7. My father’s family genealogy can be traced back to James Joyce.
  8. All these statements are bald faced lies.

Now, I must torture nominate seven “Creative Writers” and warn them about it.

This award is really getting spread around right now, so we are all having one great lying party! I will keep it going by sending to:

  1. Sam at Future; Nostalgic
  2. Olivia Tejeda at Away with Words
  3. Estrella Azul at Life’s a stage – WebBlog
  4. Donna Carrick at Donna’s Blog
  5. Mariana Blaser at Mariblaser’s Randomities
  6. Alison Wells at Head above Water
  7. Jess Rosen at Girl Meets Word

I noticed that there is no rule about eventually revealing the true statement, I think that should be added or I will keep wondering about my strange friends, and they will wonder about me – however the later is probably already true.

Thanks again, Marisa & Jodi. Please reveal your truths, please. Can you tell I am begging?
