This is TRUE. Before she was Anna Nicole, she was Vickie something Smith and was a dancer in Vegas. I had just moved in with my boyfriend (now hubby) and SHE was Playboy's Playmate of the Month (May 1992 for you curious men out there...). Since I was in the phone book, I had directors and all sorts of horny men calling me offering to fly me to NYC, LA, Chicago to do commercials or movies, etc. They wouldn't believe me when I said I wasn't who they were looking for.
2. A few years ago, my husband and I went to Vegas on vacation. I had a friend who had a pilot's license so while my hubby was off golfing with his friend, we went up in a little Cessna touring the Vegas Valley by air. It was all going great, except those little planes don't have air conditioning. I am pre-disposed to heat stroke, and this was AUGUST so it didn't take long for the heat to get the best of me and I ended up throwing up all over myself.
This one is also TRUE. I hadn't actually met this friend in person before as he lived in California and I lived in Iowa. He flew to Vegas just to take me for a spin - how nice was that? Then I ralphed all over myself. Dear God, not the kind of impression I wanted to leave anyone with. hahaha. I sent my girlfriend an email after it happened and she not only laughed her butt off, she read the email to everyone in her office!
3. I dated a guy once that my friend flagged down for me on the Vegas Strip. He told me his name was Michael, and after a few weeks of dating, he invited me to go bowling with his sister and a couple other people. Everyone was calling him George, and at first I thought it was a joke, but he confessed later that night his real name was George and he told me it was Michael because he hated George.
This one is TRUE. My friend followed us in her car but lost us in the traffic. This is before cell phones, so she was panicked. When George/Michael finally took me home, we were sitting in the car talking and my overprotective older brother took his license plate down and called it in to see if there were any warrants out on him (nope).
4. I dated a guy once that worked as a taxi driver. Someone stole his little zippered pouch of cash one night. After he got off work he came over and picked me up and we drove by the Prime Suspect's house. I should mention that the whole reason he suspected these particular individuals was because of their race, which I found so distasteful, we broke up soon after. NOT a supporter of racial profiling! Anyway, while I waited in the car, he snuck around the car and stole their garbage can! Stuck it in the trunk of his car (sideways) and drove to a remote location to sift through it to see if the pouch was in there. It wasn't.
OMG, how I wish this weren't true. In retrospect I'm not sure what I ever saw in this guy. He was a little odd from the get go. Washed his shoes with an old toothbrush and Comet. He's going to inspire a character someday, that'll show him! heh heh heh.
5. I pulled the fire alarm at school once. I was in second or third grade. I'd gotten the hall pass to go to the bathroom, and on the way back to my room, I was running my hand along the concrete wall enjoying the feel of the bumps under my fingers. The red fire box was right outside my class room. My eyes were glued to it as I approached. I swear I had the little angel-devil on my shoulders duking it out, just like on cartoons. I wasn't going to pull it, but at the last minute the devil won and I gave it a yank. There was a two second delay before the siren went off, which let me get just inside the classroom door. I whispered the secret to my best friend when were lined up outside and I'm SURE she ratted on me though she swore she didn't. I was grounded for a month.
So obviously, being the only one left, THIS is the lie. I've always wanted to pull the dumb thing just to see what would happen. But I've always been WAY too well-behaved to try it. I hate being seated by the exit door in the air plane because there's part of me that really wants to open up the door even if we are six miles above the ground. If you're on a flight with me, you might wanna keep an eye on me...
How'd you do? This was so much fun...I should tag someone else to do this to keep the fun rolling, but I'm tired so I'll just ask you to volunteer instead. Alert me if you do, so I can hop over and take a look!
EXERCISE: 30 mins over lunch. Used one of the programs on the elliptical, and I don't know if it's possible to screw it up, but the little display said I was workin' my glutes, but I'd feel it everywhere else butt (hahaha pun intended).
WATER: Six glasses
BOOK: I had a new idea so I sketched that out real quick before I lost it.
