Bridget, sorry it took me a while to get to this. I am going to put the spin on it that I've seen others do. First there are 4 simple questions then lists of 4 things to which I will add a lie. Feel free to guess what the lie is, though there will be no prizes this time. I am still trying to recover from the last two coffee related rewards I did. Have I mentioned lately how much I loathe coffee?? You know I must really like you if I am willing to even pretend to enjoy that sludge.

Ok, without further ado......

1. A jingle I know all the words to. Scrubba scrubba scrubba, with the new Ipana. Scrubba scrubba scrubba it's dandy for your teeth. (no, I'm not really THAT old, my mother used to sing it in a silly voice to get me to brush my teeth)

2. A childhood boardgame at which I cheated. I was pretty honest. Does adding extra kids to my car when I played 'Life' count?

3. Song I sing the wrong words to. 'Blinded by the light. Wrapped up like a.........' Well, you know what we all sing to that dontcha?

4. Most embarassing story my parents regualrly trot out. My mother's boyfriend told me I was such a klutz I couldn't ride my bike and chew gum at the same time. I felt compelled to prove him wrong, took the gum and my bike. Came back 5 minutes later with knees and elbows bleeding after flipping my bike.

That's a nice meme. If people know a lot about someone, I'll bet it's even more fun.

Good post.

James Goodman said...

Ah, man...I just got a chance to start the blog hopping and I missed my opportunity to guess. Shucky darn, we both know I would have got a 90% or better :D

Bridget Jones said...

damn I didn't know about the lie thing!

I"m guessing the last one in each group is the fib.


Bridget Jones said...

Oh I'm also stupid. Didn't recognize that you'd posted the answers!

You could watch Braveheart more than once??? YIKES the ending...

The Zombieslayer said...

2. A childhood boardgame at which I cheated. I was pretty honest. Does adding extra kids to my car when I played 'Life' count?

Wow! Of all the times I've cheated at games as a kid, I've never once cheated at Life. That's awesome. I bow down to the great Lime.

bsoholic said...

The game of Life was my absolute favorite game as a kid. Not sure why really, just loved it.
