10 Random Lies About Me

I do my research about blogging. Through such research, I've found out that "10 Random Facts about Me"-type posts do very well in the blog world. I embarked to create such a post...but somehow ended up going another direction....

I felt that a blog post of this sort was just crying out for an emo picture. Is this one emo enough?
1. I LOVE puppies!!

2. My middle name is Marguerite.

3. I've broken one bone.

4. I'm decently good at sports in general, but my favorite one to play is basketball.

5. In my spare time, I like to knit--outdoors if the weather is nice, but indoors and watching a show if it isn't.

6. Once upon a time, I was on the show Jeopardy but I didn't win.

7. I just love coffee and have to limit myself to one cup every day!

8. My husband and I were high school sweethearts.

9. If I could have any job in the world, I would be a doctor.

10. My favorite flower is the Rafflesia.

Thank you for indulging my little venture into pathological lying. I realize that this post was probably slightly less informative than the more-common Facts post, but I hope that you enjoyed it nonetheless.

I am with Kathy, I never have broken a bone but was so jealous of the other kids getting color drawing and signatures on their neon colored casts.

I never thought I'd break a bone, but I ended up breaking my arm in 5th grade, and since it wasn't a bad break, it was kinda fun!

This is a fun idea for a post, I found myself trying to figure out what would be true based on your lies. Like if most of them were opposites, or true but with one thing changed, etc.

LOL this is so much fun. Big knitter, eh? I agree with the above comments and totally want to try this out for a post. It sounds like fun making up a bunch of white lies. ;)

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Darn-I was hoping we had a pro basketball player in our midst!

I do like the picture and I really like the top you are wearing! Those were pretty good!

Paige Gunter said...

Hahaha, I may have fallen for the first one. Making up stories is far more fun than the truth sometimes, right? Still, at least you were honest in the end! :)

I would love to be on Jeopardy!

Kristine@thefoleyfam said...

This is genius and is totally much more entertaining than the boring facts post you mentioned! Totally inspired to write my own! Thanks!!

Elegance and Mommyhood said...

Hahahaa this was funny. I want to do it now. LOL I am guessing ALL the opposites of these are true, indeed, right? I am also horrible at sports. I could never be a doctor and I have never heard of a flower named rafflesia,

Your hair looks great in the photo, too.
