10 Things About Me: Win a FREE Shell Necklace!

My good buddy Skamama had a fun contest over at her blog where she posted 10 things about her, 9 of which were true. I'm going to do the same thing. Your job, dear readers, is to put down your bottle of Blue Nun and try to figure out which statement is a falsehood. Leave your answer in the comments. I'll do a random drawing of those who guess correctly. If no one is correct I'll do a random drawing of everyone in the comments. Good luck! You have until next Sunday (20 July).

The winner will receive a FREE Chlo-made shell necklace, much like the one in the picture. Just a few shells tied to string, but they are genuine shells from the shores of Loch Long handmade by The Crabby Crafter, a genuine inhabitant of Cove, Scotland. Also, nautical stuff is really 'in' this season -- I read that in both Elle and Marie Claire, so it has to be true.
If only one person guesses correctly, I'll also crochet them a hat!

Anyway, here we go:

1. After all these years, I am still in pursuit of the perfect shade of red lipstick.

2. I received speech therapy as a child.

3. I couldn't figure out how to roll my tongue until I was almost in high school.

4. I LOVE hot sauce and prefer my picante foods to be REALLY hot. The only person who can tolerate more heat than I can is my dad.

5. I hate touching tennis balls!

6. I decided to go vegetarian on a whim whilst eavesdropping on two girls in the bathroom.

7. I appeared on an episode of The Mickey Mouse Club alongside Christina Aguilera.

8. I only have 27 teeth. I had 29 before my wisdom teeth were pulled.

9. My favourite holiday is Halloween. I went trick-or-treating pretty much every year until, some time in college, the people giving out candy started telling me I was too old.

10. Of course, clowns give me the creeps, but Santa Claus gives me the creeps, too.

Good luck!!


  1. I'm callin' B.S. on #7.


  2. Yeah, I have to go with Louie on this one. #7 is BS.

  3. Hmmmm, let's see... shouldn't you have had 32 teeth before your wisdom teeth were pulled?

    I think you could have been on MMC if you were visiting Disney World.

    I will guess #9 the Halloween thing.

  4. I'm going against the grain and choosing #1. Red lipstick seems a bit too wild for you, and it might clash with your 'pit hair. :)

  5. I'm going to guess that #8 is the falsehood. And I want to see the Mickey Mouse Club episode on you-tube.

  6. number 3 is the false answer. yeah?

  7. #5. you take me as they type who loves touching tennis balls.

    this is braxto by the way

  8. I'm going with number 1. Guy only has 27 teeth, so that sounds plausible to me :P


  9. #7 can't be true, because christina aguilera would no longer be with us if it was.

  10. Hrm. I've never seen you wear red lipstick, so I'll go with 1. I do know your true feelings for chili sauce after having noodles with you at Ichiban.


  11. Ah... Let's say #6, simply because there are better reasons to become vegetarian. :]
