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.
