Who Says I'm Not Stylish?

Shay, aka Fireblossom, from Shay's Word Garden , has graciously bestowed upon me this Stylish Blogger Award. Definitely check out Shay's poetry-it rocks hard! There is not a clunker to be found. This is poetry I would actually buy, were it for sale (hint, hint).

According to the rules of this here award, I have to scrape my psyche for another 7 fun facts to tell you about myself (chomping at the bit, are we?!!)
Let's play a game (another inspiration from Fireblossom)- 6 Truths and 1 Lie:
I'll list 7 things about myself. Six of them will be true and one of them will be a lie. You can guess which is the lie.

  1. I sucked my thumb until at least the age of 12.
  2. I have never smoked.
  3. I once had a story published in Playgirl magazine under the pseudonym "Lola."
  4. One of my good friends in high school is a Tony Award nominee.
  5. At this time I have bright fuchsia (Power to the Resistance, Doug!) strands of hair
  6. I have had some of my poems published
  7. I worked for one day as a telemarketer.
Okay, time to guess! Which is the lie? I'll post the answer in a few days.

    Somehow #3 just doesn't suit your character. I love the name Lola by the way. You deserve the award, your blog is very stylish and my daughter the Artist loves the name of it too.

    What a list! I'm gonna say number 5 is hooey. Mice don't have fuschia hair! :-D

    I have never smoked

    I think that #1 is the lie. I'm hoping that #5 is not!

    Congrats on the award! Hmm, let's see... I'm going to guess that number 3 is the red herring. Although, it would be really cool if it were true :)

    Sweetness on the award! I would say that the lie would be the telemarketer one. Fuchsia hair?? That would be rockin awesome!
