Well, it’s been a fun week since Rachel set us off with this game that she saw at Liz’s, I believe and it has just snow-balled. Keep it going, say I. It’s kind of fun, don’t you think?
Here are the answers to my offering. I just know you’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out which one of these is the true lie.
I love black olives.
I do! I love them on pizza, in a submarine sandwich and especially in pasta putanesca.
I do not like camping.
I don’t! As much as I love nature, I do not love being in the wilds. I’m a terrible camper. It’s not the lack of luxury—I can do without a hairdryer and mod cons, but I love my bed too much to sleep in a tent. And let’s not forget how terrified I am of bees.
I have an older half-sister and a younger adopted one.
I do! I am the middle child between an older daughter that I only found out about 10 years ago. I have an adopted sister who is six years my junior.
I was a radio disc jockey in university
I was! In Second year of uni, I had my own radio show, “Mental Notes” where I played mainly post-punk/alternative/ska and tons of Kate Bush!
I once dated a French Canadian who wore harem pants.
I DID!!! Sylvain Painchaud (I am NOT making this up!) came from Montreal and his fashion of choice was a pair of pants with a crotch that hung down around his knees. (It was the 80s and he was a trend-setter.) I forgave him that for his accent and his good looks. Giulia, you can’t relax now.
I am afraid of heights.
I am! I don’t like balconies, mountain tops, or cliffs. My dad made me look over the edge at the Cliffs of Moher and I nearly puked! (I was lying on my belly).
I have fished brook trout (dug worms, baited hook, caught, cleaned and cooked them).
Yes! I have. My uncle in Nova Scotia took me on a fishing trip in the woods to get some trout for supper. I guess I had something to prove because I did everything and I’m proud of it!
I despise shopping malls.
I do! I’m a thrift-store, small department store shopper. If I HAVE to go to a mall, I get in and get what I need and get the hell out! I don’t like crowds and I don’t like standing around waiting for people with nowhere to sit. I really hate Christmas shopping in malls the worst of all.
I have been on the back of a fast-moving Kawaski 750.
I absolutely have—many times, in fact. We owned it. Now we have the Mini Cooper for fun, spree-filled rides, but those days on the back of the motorcycle were a blast!
I love to watch American Football (Go Bills!)
I DON’T!!! It’s not so much the sport itself, it’s the racket of the crowds and the television commentators that really gets under my skin. Unfortunately, as much as I try to like it, I just end up “zoning out” and looking off into space.
I DO like soccer (football).
Congratulations are due to Gabrielle who got it right without hesitation, and also TFE who second-guessed himself and struck on the right one! Sorry, I have no prize to bestow upon you, other than a “Well done, you!” Thanks for playing.
