Where's the fib?

My apologies, everyone.  It's been a crazy week and I'm way behind on everything.  

I had a lot of fun playing Where's the fib? last month.  As you may recall, I invited volunteers to offer up four facts and a fib about themselves, then held a poll to see if folks could spot guess which were which.  Judging from some of the facts I saw, it's fair to say that you guys have led some crazy lives!

Congratulations to Mary Daley (aka maryjdal) whose four facts and a fib were voted the most interesting.  She wins a copy of my ebook Fur-Face or a Quake ebook of her choice

Now it's time to seperate the fibs from the fiction.  If you were one of those who gave me poll questions, please post a comment revealing which of your five 'facts' actually wasn't.  When I've got everyone's fibs, I'll figure out who also won the free copy of Fur-Face (or a Quake ebook of their choice if he/she's already got that one). 

As for my own 'Four facts and a fib,' here's what I said:

I've had my nose broken six times.   FACT

I knew the individual letters, but I couldn’t recite the alphabet until I was eleven years old.  FACT

At the age of 16, I worked as a disc jockey in a pub/strip club.  FACT

I can trace my family name back to 1066, when one of my ancestors, Henry de Guibe, was given lands in England by William the Conqueror.  FIB

I met Senior Management at a wedding I was filming.  FACT

Nearly half of those who voted saw through my bare-faced lie.  In fact, it's Senior Management who can trace her family name back to this event.

I'm looking forward to seeing if I managed to spot any of my friends' fibs.  This really was loads of fun.  We'll definitely do it again sometime.

This was so much fun! Here are my answers:

I've eaten fried worms. FACT

I got paid to read letters from Katherine Hepburn. FACT

I discovered and held an original Picasso. FACT (It was a pottery piece, not a painting)

I met the sculptor of the Nurses Memorial (the monument in Arlington National Cemetery). FIB (I was hired by her estate to work as an archivist and did so for two years. She was alive when I started working, but passed before I got the chance to meet her.)

I sold my first bit of writing when I was sixteen. FACT

And there you have it!

I can't wait to see what all the other fibs are!

The only problem is, I can't remember what I voted for on some of them . . .

Thanks, Joan. Sadly, you can't change the 'view results' option once you've set up a poll. Which answers were you unsure about?
