Bald Lying

I've been tapped by Carol Kilgore at Under the Tiki Hut to receive the Lesa's Bald Faced Liar "Creative Writer" Blogger Award. I'm honored! Thank you, Carol.

As with the best things in life, this is not free. There are some things I must do before I can relax and stare at my lovely 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.

That's it. Now, of course I must tell six outrageous lies about myself. Hmmm. Dunno why Carol thought I knew how to lie, but never mind.  Will have words with her later. Oh. And one outrageous truth. Well, there's nothing outrageous about the truth. It can only set one free.

So, here goes:
  1. I gave a drunken lap dance to a 21-year-old stranger at a transvestite club.
  2. My father was the mayor of his New Jersey town.
  3. I never went to college because I was kicked out of high school.
  4. I gave up a rock star life because the sex and drugs became same-old, same-old.
  5. I am now a happy little homemaker and cook, clean, bake every day.
  6. My mother spoke French to me until I went to first grade.
  7. I never learned to drive.
Now, I must torture nominate seven "Creative Writers" and warn them about it.

I'm tapping the side of my nose with my index finger as I think. All right. Here are the seven bloggers I'm passing this award to:

  1. Deanna Schrayer at The Other Side of Deanna
  2. Anne Tyler Lord at Don't Fence Me In
  3. G.P. Ching at So, Write
  4. P.J. Kaiser at Inspired by Real Life 
  5. Karen Schindler at Miscellaneous Yammerings
  6. Tony Noland at Landless 
  7. Alex Carrick at Alex Carrick's Blog
That was a lot of work, Carol.

But it was an entertaining way to spend my snowbound day! Thanks again.

    Congratulations on the award. I'm guessing the truth is you never learnt to drive though I'm pretty hopeless with these ones.

  2. Congrats! Carol only outted you as a great liar...we all knew it. :)
    I think your truth is that your mother spoke French to you.

  3. Congratulations Marisa! Cassandra and Laura guessed on which one was the truth - is this a contest? Will I win a mud-pie if I guess the real truth? I say it's the lap dance for a stranger. ;)
    Oh, and thank you, I think?

  4. I'm tempted to go with the lap dance, but I'm thinking your mother spoke French to you.

    Okay, I need to know how you put the line through "Bald Faced Liar." I tried to do that and couldn't.

    Straight From Hel

  5. I'm honored, thank you! Look for a corresponding blog post soon.

    In the meantime, I'm going to guess that the lapdance is the truth.

  6. Congrats on your award, and thank you, I think, for passing it to me.

    I guess that your mother spoke French to you, but I feel a lot of energy behind the lap dance.

  7. I'd go for the rock star career or the lap dance. They're both too funny to be ignored! lol

    Many congrats on the award Marisa! You sure deserve it! (Ops, I don't mean to say you're a natural liar... You're the *creative* type, heh ;P).

  8. Well deserved and thank you for passing on the honor. I knew my talent for making sh*t up would one day pay off!

    I'm going with "father was Mayor of New Jersey town." It' not that I don't believe you gave the lap dance, it's the transvestite club. There just aren't that many of them out there...

  9. I think your mother spoke French to you. Now I'm going to check the bloggers you awarded this to.

  10. Dann damn and double damn. After Laura gave it to me I thought about who I'd award the award to if I were to award the award....[hang on while I stop spinning] and you and Anne were on my list...After a lot of soul searching I've decided that I'm going to do it sort of...but you guys HAVE to stop dragging me kicking and screaming [although in this case gleefully] into the dark side. I'm telling you, once I go all out evil...there will be consequences.....oh the consequences.......

    PS I think you never learned to drive. [you have those magic hedgehog slippers to propel you everywhere you want to why would you bother to learn to drive?]

  11. Nice! I'm tempted by the mom speaking French to you because I've known a few families that have done that :)

  12. Thank you for the comment on my blog! I hope you try salt dough, it's such fun and very therapeutic. Let me know if you need any advice, I'd be glad to help.

    Congratulations on the fab award! I've really enjoyed reading your wonderful Friday Flashes, thank you!


  13. I'm guessing the falsehood is the happy little homemaker. I bet you're six five.

  14. If the one about cooking, cleaning and baking every day is true, I'm going to have to disappear you before my husband finds out that is even a remote possibility.

    Glad you see your parent's money wasn't wasted on your dance lessons. A girl's gotta have skills.

  15. Hey missy! You won't escape telling your truth!

    Mari-girls don't shy off these things, eh? hehe

    So, which one is it? ;P

  16. Okay Mari-girl, I will confess.

    It was the lap dance. :)

  17. I knew there was something delightfully wicked about you. :)

  18. Hehe! Sometimes, one has to take one for the team... :)

  19. Ohhh, awesome! :D

    *taking hat off*

    It must have been loads of fun! Thanks for being this brave and sharing your truth. *hugs* :D

    (Ah, sorry if I was a bit pushy? I hate when it happens... :/)

  20. No, I just forgot that I never answered! Not pushy at all. Confession is good for the soul xx

  21. Ha, it WAS the lap dance - I guessed right!

  22. Yes, Tony, you did guess correctly! Hmm. Were you there, too?
