Lesa's Creative Writer Award: Fun for Me and For You

My bloggy friend Small Footprints, over at Reduce Footprints, recently won the Bald-Face Liar Creative Writer Blogger Award, the rules of which state she has to nominate others for the award and ... yessirreebob ... she nominated me. It's an honor! It's a game! You can play too!

The Game

Here are the rules:
  • Thank the person who gave this to you.
  • Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
  • Link to the person who nominated you.
  • Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth – or – switch it around and tell six outrageous truths and one outrageous lie.
  • Nominate seven “Creative Writers” who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
  • Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
  • Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

My Lies And/Or Truths

  1. I was trained in a martial arts program so strenuous that I ate up to 18,500 calories a day, yet due to exercise, I did not have an unhealthy weight gain
  2. I have taken classes from a sitting United States Supreme Court justice, a former Spetznatz officer, and a pederast
  3. My father never got permission to enter the United States legally (and, no, he was not born in a State or D.C.)
  4. One of my best jobs involved dolls, computers and stock price manipulation
  5. One of my worst jobs involved altering investment transactions in hexadecimal (... which was not the same as the previous job)
  6. In the seminary I learned more from Asimov than from the Bible because it was a lot more clearly written
  7. In the early 1980s, turned down a job offer from a company called "Microsoft" and in the early 2000s, I turned down an offer from a company called "google". (Given my track record, would you like to offer me a job? I promise to turn you down!)

The Nominations

Now to the nominations. There are so many people I'd like to stick with pass this award to. If I haven't nominated you, and you'd like to play along, please do. But, to fulfill my duties and get us started, I nominate - in alpha order - seven of the most creative writers or bloggers whose work I enjoy:

Good-luck, have fun and pass it on!

Oh my ... whether truths or lies, they are, indeed, outrageous! I'm going to say that they are all true except for the first one ... 18,500 calories is a lot of calories. :)

This was hard ... can't wait for the reveal! :)

Thanks for playing along!

I have to say, it's been interesting to see where this award has gone. I'm with Small Footprints. I think they're all true except #1.
