Not Really Food Related - Meme Catch Up

I've been remiss about answering a few memes with which I have been tagged. But if you are looking for something food related...

...I finally posted the Valentine's Dinner over at Our Krazy Kitchen (a follow up to the Brunch post from Saturday). Click on the link for your foodie fix.

Creative Writer
Back to the memes. Tamy (3 Sides of Crazy) tagged me with the Creative Liar...err..Writer meme that a lot of you have been doing.

1.Thank the person who gave this to you. (Thanks Tamy!)
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you. (see above)

4. Tell us up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.

5. Allow your readers to guess which one or more are true.

5. Nominate seven "Creative Writers" who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.

6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.

7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

Okay, here are my entries. Some are outright lies, some are partially true, and only one is entirely true.
  1. I've never been out of the United States but I keep my passport handy because you never know when "legal entanglements" may arise.
  2. I have a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
  3. I fractured my skull while surfing on my mother's 50th birthday & it was also Mother's day that year.
  4. I love fish. I love it grilled, fried, smoked, and baked, I just can't stand sushi.
  5. I surfed in Hurricane Hugo for some of the biggest surf of my life.
  6. You can see me in the background in one of the bowling alley scenes in The Big Lebowski.
  7. I was once arrested wearing nothing but a towel.
So you figure it out, which one is true?

I'm supposed to tag others with these Meme's but you know how that goes. They always say they'll get right on it, then they forget or take forever (like me). So if you want to do this, consider yourself tagged.


  1. LOL, why do I think all of these are true? I'm going with the blue belt.

  2. You made my Valentine's Dinner fantabulous dahling. I shall keep you tucked in my virtual cookbook shelf for an eternity. He went to bed with a stomach ache. Consider this a testament to all thing nibble.
    Gumbo I am in search of the best Gumbo evah.
    The Bumpkin

  3. I'm with LA on this - #2 is my pick for the true statement, but those are some amusing claims. :P
    I showed my grandson some select Monty Python clips last week. The Bridge Keeper and the Black Knight was his favorites and he was quoting that exact line to me yesterday at breakfast! Made me smile to see your quote.

  4. I am just hoping you were in the Big Lebowski

  5. I'll fall out of my chair laughing if you were really arrested with nothing on but a towel, LOL! I'd imagine you'd have the same look on your face that you had in the photo with the dinosaur!

    I'm going to guess #3 is true. Can't wait to see your answers! :-)

  6. Even though I hope it's nit true I am choosing the Mothers Day Broken Nogin Tale. GREG

  7. I could never lie... I embellish! The truth can be very elastic!

  8. I don't know which one is true, maybe number two. I'm heading over to check out your post about Valentine's dinner - it sounds delicious.

  9. I'm also guessing #3 isn't true. At least I sure hope its not. I'm also not so sure about surfing in Hugo. I hope you're not going to keep us in the dark Chris. We want to know.

  10. I really enjoyed this post! :)

  11. I think 4 is right...I can't do sushi.

  12. Chris - If you didn't get the email I sent you, please send me one.

  13. First, I love the menu. Do you actually print those out?

    Second, my guess is . . . 2? But I can imagine several of them being true . . . except the fish. No deal there.

    Third, where do find the time to do all that you do? You are like superman. In a bathrobe.
