You Say Yes, I Say No

Got tagged for another meme on Facebook, and I am feeling frisky, so I'm going to do it -- with a twist. But first, "the rules":
The rules are simple:
1. You can ONLY answer YES or NO
2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and Asks!
Of course you all already know that I have issues with authority, so I am not going to let "them" tell me how to do a damn survey. Not exactly, anyway. I am going to answer these questions, but for three of these items, my answer will be a LIE. You need to figure out which ones are fibs. I will reveal the answers in comments on Friday.

(Also: numbering added for ease of commenting -- these numbers did not appear in the original survey. Doesn't technically matter, but full disclosure and all. Just in case you were tagged too.)

I will answer questions about these responses, except "Is #XX a lie?" That one you need to figure out on your own. (And I can't promise I won't obfuscate.)


  1. I have some guesses... I think that #2 and #25 are lies. I'm working on the other one. It might be #26 or #29. Not super sure though. I guess I'll find out manana.

  2. the lies are: #10 (i was fired from my first job out of college, working for NJ PIRG, back in 1996); #18 (as far as i can recall, i was never thrown in a pool with all my clothes on); and #25 (never in a band, although at one point i was in 5 different choirs at the same time).

    believe it or not, i actually WAS arrested once, in february 1995 or 1996 (forget which) for protesting without a permit. they were putting in the hooters at the carousel mall. this was back in my marxist feminist collective days.

  3. Can you honestly say that during all of those years of going to swim meets etc that you were never thrown into a pool wearing your clothes? Or at your grandmother's? Wow. I would have bet a lot of money on that one. I guess I didn't do very well, an dI thought I aced it. Oh well. It also appears that I'm the only one who played, and that should count for something!

  4. it does count for something! not sure what yet, but i'll figure it out evenutally.
