Andrea,

Don't know if your Day of our Lives is true, but that is the only soap I watch. Watched it for 30 years.

For you I would say. 1 $ 3

this was SO FUN. I can't wait to hear the others' answers....

here are the guesses I missed:

Andrea: #1 is false

Maryann: #2 is false

Eppie: #1 is false

Lynne: #1 is false

Tina: #3 is false

Cheri: #1 is false

Becky: #2 is false

I did pretty well on the last group, but you guys were HARD!

my answer:

I have all my toes, so my #2 was false. I am, indeed, a hearing-impaired, former White House intern. Clinton Administration.

:lol:

Ok here is mine.

I carried the Czech Republic Flag during the opening ceremony when the NHL All star game was here in L.A. (live on ESPN)

I did drive a float in the Rose Parade my Jr. year in High school.

I have never worked the sidelines at a Raider Game

I guessed Ann and Snowflake the others I was off a bit. Here is the truth for me.

I am a natural blond but with time my hair has gotten darker and needs touch ups. I don't mind the grey but for some reason it doesn't show but I hate the ugly brown it has become.

I do have 8 grandchildren ranging in age from 4 to 23. The oldest and youngest are sisters with one 19 year old sister in the middle.

I love to read. All of my life I have devoured anything printed that I can get my hands on. When nothing else was available I have been know to read the encyclopedia. I just never learned to spell good. When I took the test to see how much I needed in night school to take the GED test my teacher told me that I had the highest reading score he had ever seen :!: I just have to pace myself because if I start reading everything else falls by the wayside.

Boy, this looks like a fun string of posts. I just wish I'd seen it sooner before so many answers were revealed. I know that while reading down the list I got a few wrong.

Ones I missed were:

Dadstimeon - I thought 2

Ann - I thought 1

Debbie - 3

Ry - 2

Of the ones that answers haven't been given yet my guesses are:

Kasey I guess # 2

Snowflake also # 2

Sheri # 3

Tnmynatt 2

LynneH 1

Eppie 1

Maryann 1

and Andrea 2

1. I used to be a lingerie model

2. I was so shy growing up that I didn't meet my first friend until I was 12, and didn't have my first date until I was 19.

3. I graduated college in only 3 1/2 years.

Well, Carleen,you are pretty enough to model lingerie....

and youre too pretty to have been dateless until age 19.

I am going to guess that pretty goes with smarts too soooooo

I guess I am stumped. Maybe you were a lingerie model for Keith but a clothing model in actuality.

My "lie" is the bit about voting Republican......Never! (don't get me started on that stuff! grrrrrrrrr!)

Maryanne you got it right!!!

I have watched Days on and off since I was in 5th grade. Used to be such an avid fan, when I lived in NY, my friend and I came to California on vacation during our junior year at college to attend the Days annual luncheon :oops:

I had perfect attendance, was to anal to miss school, had fights with my mom and went to school sick so I would not miss out b/c I was obsessive with good grades :oops:

As for babysitting---you know how once cancer strikes you or someone you love, the fear is there? Well an anology, my parents were both claims adjusters for insurance companies. They saw it all, hence they were paranoid about liability if a child got hurt while I was babysitting, so I was not allowed to do it :roll:

I DO have 5 grandchildren from age 2 to 19 :? !!!

I WAS considered a rabble rouser/trouble maker by my principal when I taught 6th grade.

For those of you who believed I swim laps at the Y....well, you guys have been spending too much time in the Pub :lol::lol: !

Maybe we should play the game Truth or Dare next :lol: !

Okay, I'll have to go back and read these again tonight for those that are still mysteries. You will have to trust that I did guess correctly for Bunny because I think I have read in her posts somewhere about interning and hearing aids.

Kasey, I guessed wrong. I would never have thought she was a big troublemaker.

#1 was my big lie - No Tatoo. Would never volunteer for a needle.

#2 I helped Jim paint several water towers. He was a contractor that sandblasted and painted large steel structures (mostly city water towers) and I was cheap help and too young and in love to tell him 'no way!'.

#3 Jim painted the big wall in the bedroom red for me! Took 5 coats! It's wonderful and doesn't look too much like a bordello.

Fun!

mine...

1) I do not have the web of skin on the under side of my tounge due to an unfortunate accident when I was 17.

2) I was in a Bon Jovi video when I was 21.

3) I love to take a bunch of little kids to chukee cheese so I have an excuse to jump in the big room full of those little plastic balls.

Shellie,

This is fun.

I believe the tongue bit.

I can believe the Bon Jovi bit too......when you're young you can make musical choice mistakes....I use to like Phil Collins.

But the Chuckie Cheese bit....I mean come on! You'd have to point a gun at my head before I go in to that insane place. It's a germ factory intent on corroding and brainwashing the nation's toddlers with overstimulation and carbonated drinks. Bleahhhh ....I never let my littlekids go play in the big ball thingy....Little kids pee themselves from overexcitment in those things.

But if that's what you really like, well.....don't listen to me. It soundslike you are in touch with your inner child. And that is good. I go to zoos to see the monkeys throw poo.:lol:

Mama's girl:

I thought you just got a new job. Way to go on the snowboarding competetion and the parle vou Francais!

Millie,

I pick 1, just because I really hope it didn't happen.

Actually, I did surf most days but I never did drive a rocket-powered car (came close but just didn't get the chance). Don't know what I must have been thinking, it went over 300 mph.
