Fact or Rubbish?

Ok, *still* nothing going on in the sewing room... so I thought I'd see if we could have some fun.

There's a thread over at Pattern Review entitled Fact or Rubbish in which the ladies are taking turns posting three things about themselves...two of which are true, with the third one being 'rubbish.' Then the others try to figure out which is which.

There have been some very, very interesting facts shared...and I'm amazed at the deductive powers of some of those gals over there! But, y'know, it struck me as being good blog material...particularly when I'm running full blast everywhere but the sewing room.

So, anyway, I'm going to post two true and one untrue item about my life and invite comments to see who can figure out which is which. And I invite anyone amongst my readers who is in need of blogging material to do likewise and leave a comment so we'll know to visit your site and apply our deductive reasoning.

Anyway, in no particular order, here are my items:

1)I have put my feet in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans

2)When I was in high school, I had pen pals in 13 different countries

3) I was designated my high school's 'Betty Crocker Family Leader of Tomorrow' when I was a senior, despite the fact that I transferred out of my only home economics class the first week of my freshman year.

Um, that was pretty tough, since I've posted 'random things' memes two or three times and couldn't talk about things like feeding lion cubs...LOL

Ok...who wants to play?


  1. I'm afraid I don't have very good deductive reasoning skills, because I haven't had any clue about any of the ones posted on PR! Or yours! For some reason, I'm going to guess #3 is the misleading statement.

  2. hmmm, I suspect my deductive skills aren't so keen either but 3) seems just 'off' enough that it's probably true - I think 2) might be the false item.

  3. Good evening, dear Lisa! I have nominated you for the Bookworm Award! When you have time, stop by my blog and pick up your award (and I hope you will have time to answer the question that accompanies the award). Have a blessed evening!

  4. Well, I think #3 is true because I was a Betty Crocker Homemaker of Tomorrow myself (I'm old enough that the title was a bit different), and I never took home ec in high school. I'm going to guess #1 is false.
