The Return of Game Day!!!

I know, I know. You've all missed this day as much as I have, but it's back! We're back, baby! It's gonna happen every Wednesday from now until the end of time, or at least for as long as I can think of game ideas.

I thought we'd kick things off with an old favourite of mine. It's called Two Truths and a Lie. I'm pretty sure you all know how to play, but here's a quick refresher. In a comment, share two truths about yourself and one lie. My job is to guess which one is the lie. Ready? Set? Go!

1. My mother is turning 60 today.
2. I baked her an angel food cake and it smells awesome.
3. I melted a bottle of honey this morning.

I believe that you melted a bottle of honey this morning. I might have done something similar not too long ago. What I don't believe, however, is that you baked your 60 year-old mom an awesome-smelling angel food cake. I think you used Betty Crocker instead. :P

I did indeed bake it! And had a slight glaze disaster but it tasted awesome anyway. However, her birthday is not today - it is Friday. (She is turning 60 though!)

(and yes i totally melted a bottle of honey. it was an issue. and then my glaze melted all over everything. but once i cleaned up, it was delicious and fantastic and a great birthday surprise when i showed up at her school. "let's go to red lobster! also i have cake for your church choir to share with you.")

Happy almost birthday to your mommy! My mom is turning 60 next year! Oh man, can you show up at my school and take me to Red Lobster and bring me a glaze disaster cake? You're a fantastic daughter, my pip! Thanks for playing GD! ♥

1. Two of my flatmates have boyfriends called "Jon"
2. I drink my tea with milk and no sugar
3. The fire alarm went off at the school I was teaching at today AS we were exiting the building to dismiss the kids

I'm going to assume that #3 is true, and what a bummer. Fire alarms are only cool if they happen DURING school time. I believe you DO drink tea with milk and no sugar. So that means . . . #1 is the lie! Mwahahaha!

Ah ha! I got you! Actually I drink my tea with Milk and TWO sugars. If I had to go without one I'd go without milk before I'd go without sugar.

Alas, both Claire and Sarah are dating men named Jon (and both happen to be in the house at the moment). And last minute fire alarm was a disaster - turns out a kid hit it on the way out which is just annoying and especially because I don't know the kids or parents it was a bit of a mess because we had to count the kids and stuff but I was already outside when it went off and didn't hear the alarm so I'd let a few kids go home already and yeah, it was just not good.

Blast! You clever girl. ;) Ugh, that sucks about the fire alarm. At least it wasn't a real fire. Kids. *shakes head*

Hee! I like it when I can stump you! :P It's so rare! Yeah it was annoying. To be fair though the school should not have those things at small child hight!

I think you really DO love Game Day! You've been going commando quite a lot recently, but I don't think you are at this very moment. Ummm, I'm gonna go with the key lime pie yogurt! :)

Fine, you win. Kinda. Turns out I ate the yogurt later, so in actuality you got 3 truths. What can I say? I'm a rebel.

Have you just decided to stop wearing underpants altogether? :P You really are a rebel! We both win! Go us!

I'm gonna say yes to the jet skiing, yes to the snorkeling, and no to the parasailing! But I know I talked about parasailing with someone in the group before; I just don't think it was you. Hmmmm.

I have parasailed and snorkeled in Hawaii. No to jet skiing.

Well, crap. Do you want to go jet skiing? I'll go with you. :)

I have rowed in the Head of the Charles.
I used to be president of my college skydiving club.
I used to throw discus in high school.

Skydiving club? Really? Did you actually have to go skydiving in the skydiving club? Or was it just a club of people who liked to talk about skydiving or watch powerful documentaries about skydiving? Okay, I believe the other two. I'm going with skydiving as the lie. lol. If it's true I want details!

This is one of those facts about myself that I pull out to surprise people. I actually couldn't remember if I'd ever mentioned it here before. :)

For 2.5 years in college I did a lot of skydiving (a total of 80 jumps) and for a chunk of that time I was president of the club.

The lie was the one about rowing in the Head of the Charles. I did row in college, but never in the Head.

You see, this is precisely why I brought Game Day back -- so I could learn amazing facts about my friends. You just jumped your way into my top five most awesome people list! The trapeze must have been a breeze for you if you've hopped out of a plane 80 times! 80? Wow! I am so incredibly jealous. Does it ever get boring? Even after 80 jumps? ;) If you ever go for 81, take me with you!

1. My favo(u)rite group is The Cure
2. I secretly love watching "Hoarders"
3. I love summer and hot weather
jewelsverne
Sep. 29th, 2011 02:23 pm (UTC)
I love watching Hoarders too! And I'm pretty sure I recall you mentioning it before. I love you for including a 'u' in favourite. The Cure sounds right. But I don't think think you love summer and hot weather. #3 is the lie!

Awww, you're my LB! Of course I know you! ♥ I love autumn too, but winter is my favourite season. I'm a crazy canuck. :P
