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.

I competed in foreign language competitions in high school. I acted and read poetry in Spanish, often winning first place.

I lied when I said I met Janet Jackson in the Atlanta airport. (She does have a house there). However, when I lived in Altanta I did meet a lot of celebrities in the airport and the malls.

I did have a 2 foot tall doll that mysteriously moved all the time. My friends were afraid to come to my house because they thought it was possessed . . . I think it was too.

When I was a kid, I always threw up after I drank orange juice. My mom had to mix it with other fruit juices to get me to keep it down. This was pre-Tropicana Twisters. I still tell my mom we could have been rich if she would have sold that idea.

I have ALWAYS been a person who does not need a lot of sleep. When I was a kid, my dad used to give me beer at night in hopes it would help me to go to sleep. It didn't. (I HATE beer. And I rarely drink alcohol.)

Are you sure that two-foot doll wasn't the neighbor's kid? ;)

I'm pretty sure the doll was named "Chucky".

Ha! The doll was a girl. (I never got this comment in my email. Odd.)
