CONTEST post-please play along!

Here are the rules: I tell either six truths and one lie or six lies and one truth about myself, and you get to figure out which and leave a comment with your guesses about what is true or false.

The prize...a $10 gift certificate to your choice of ARe, Fictionwise, Amazon, or one of my publishers to one commenter....and a second one for the first person to get all the answers correct! I'll draw the winners on May 29th, 2010.

While I ponder what my seven will be, I will nominate seven other writers for this award! I'm choosing authors I think will have just too much fun with this game.

Jeanie and Jayha Johnson-Leigh
Charlee Boyett Compo
Angela Knight
Robin D. Owens
Zena Wynn
Tracy L. Carbone
Laura Baumbach

My list of lie(s) and truth(s)?

1. I once incited a mutiny...by accident.
2. One of my younger sisters has the same name I do.
3. I once played piano for a group that included one of my brothers on drum and one of my sisters on guitar.
4. I have removed my bra in a crowd and thrown it to a group of strange men.
5. I once broke into a library to return a book by the due date.
6. I caused a group manhunt for me that nearly ended up with the police being called in...while playing a game of tag.
7. I once told the police that my dog called them.

Thank you for playing along!

i am gonna say all but the last is true.... dunno i think your wild enough to throw the bra in public.. LOL

Only one of your younger sisters has the same name - presuming it's your last name? I'll say that one's false. I like the last one - very cute and definitely creative! Great idea for a contest, Brenna

I am going to say all are false except for the tag.

BrennaLyons said...

Actually, no... I didn't mean my last name. Since I'm now married, none of them share a last name with me. When we were young...two of them shared a last name with me (one brother and one sister), but I meant one of my younger sisters has the same first name I do. Grinning.

Thanks to everyone for playing along.

Hey, Brenna,

I think they are all true except for the one about you removing your bra and throwing it into a crowd of strange men.

Now, if the men weren't strange...

Don't forget to visit my set of lies and truths (rowenacherry.blogspot.com)

Hey Brenna, I'm the yahoo said.


catslady said...

Definitely all but one is true - they all sound like they could be lol - I'll say No. 3 is a lie.

Pauline said...

I'm going to go with #3 is the lie, too. (notice how we all think most of them are true? LOL!)

BrennaLyons said...

You know, I DID notice that most of you believe these. I must have a reputation or something.


Brandy B aka Brandlwyne said...

I think they were all lies except the one about breaking into the library, I think that one was true... Good Contest!!!

Pauline said...

It's just because we think you're brave!

BrennaLyons said...

LOL! While I was prepping these up, my husband learned one about me that he didn't know...actually more than one.

One bit of truth that didn't make it onto the list? I once appeared on Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Ah, the fun of growing up in Pittsburgh!


Pauline said...

ROTFLMAO! I'm so not surprised! Of course you on Mr. R's Neighborhood!

susan said...

I am thinking the statements are all lies but the first one. #1 is true. susan L.

Sandy Lender said...

Oh, Man! I loved watching Mr. Roger's Neighborhood when I was a kid. My parents tell me I used to answer his questions and chat with him...awesome!

I think all of these are true...did you trick us by leaving OUT the lie?

(I still have people guessing at mine, too.)

BrennaLyons said...

LOL! No. I followed the rules for this to the letter. You are either looking at 6 truths and 1 lie or 6 lies and 1 truth. On the 29th, I will post the full discourse of what is true and what is false...and what happened to land me where I was, somewhere along the line.


Tre said...

I'll say all are true except the last one. LOL!

Patricia K said...

I would say the second one is wrong

orelukjp0 said...

I say it is 6 truths and 1 lie. I think the lie is No.2. Siblings may have the same middle name but no parent would deliberately name the children the same first name unless you are George Foreman and name all your children George regardless of sex.

Mike Orenduff said...

Great idea for a contest. I'm going to guess they are all true except for telling the police your dog called them. That one sounds corny, something Brenna is definitely not.

Allyson said...

These are all true, except for #6.
