Today is my One-Year Blog Anniversary and I'm giving away ...

... ONE OF THESE!

The first person to choose the one lie out of the seven statements below will win. So which out of the following is false about me?

1. When I was a kid I used to climb the fig tree in our back yard and sing to the plum tree opposite it to make the plums more purple.

2. Between the ages of 0-5 I was VERY blonde.

3. I can't wear the same long-sleeved top twice in a row if it was touching my skin, but I can wear short-sleeved tops twice in a row. Hmm, yeah, I'm weird like that.

4. I was thrown out of ballet school for making up my own steps. I then started jazz-ballet and told everyone I was taking tap lessons.

5. Being a guitarist, singer and songwriter, I never learnt how to read sheet music, but I can read guitar tabs.

6. I learnt German for six years, but now all I can remember is "Der hahn ist tut."

7. I used to make beaded jewelry. I still have a huge box of unused beads shoved in the back of my wardrobe.

So which is it, folks? Which one is THE LIE?



















Good luck! I'll announce the result tomorrow!!!

PS: Today is Kathara Deftera in Greece (Clean Monday), which is the end of Carnival and the beginning of Lent. Traditionally people fly kites today. If I weren't still sick, I'd so go. Who wants to fly a kite for me? ;o)

  16. Happy blog anniversary! A year goes by so quickly, doesn't it?

    Just for the record, I'm going to guess #6. :)

  17. Happy Happy Blogiversary!

    Man, your lie is very well concealed. I'm going to pick #1 just because it's a lovely image, not because I think it's a lie. I really have no idea!

  22. Wow, I don't know whic is the lie, LOL! I'm going to guess #1.

    Congrats on the Blogaversary!!! :D

  23. I think on #3 you've reversed shirt order... You have to wash the short sleeve, but can rewear the long sleeve (or maybe I am just trying too hard to have you have this in common with ME)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Happy blog anniversary! Whew - tough choices there, honey. I'm going to go with #4, but I honestly have no idea...and if I SHOULD know the answer, I'm blaming it on being sick :-P Loves ya. xo

  25. Happy blogiversary! May there be many more. :-)

  26. "We call it Mardi Gras around these parts, pretty lady," says Samuel Mcord. LOL.

    Congrats on surviving a year in these blog waters, Jessica!

    I won't hazard a guess. I'm lousy at spotting lies, hence all the scoundrels I end up voting for.

    I pray you feel better. If you weren't sick, I would ask you to be a hostess for my blog tour. Come by and see the start of it today.

    You just are too good a hostess for those darn germs! Roland

  27. ahh--we have one more day before we hit the Lenten season. It's Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday tomorrow around my hometown, but I'm not there. I'm clear across the continent in San Franscisco... Mendocino, to be exact.

    Anyway, I'm sure someone's already guessed it, but I bet you remember more German than that.

    I like your little purple plum story~ :o) <3 xoxo

  28. Congrats on making it through the first year, Jessica! And since all seven have already been guessed (and seem completely true), I say your P.S. is the false one. You may be sick, but the real reason you didn't fly a kite is because there was very little wind.

  29. #6. I know german too :)

  32. Congratulations on your first year of blogging – here’s to the next ten.

    I’m going to guess Number 1 is the lie. But, if it turns out to be true, I’d be curios to know what you sang, and did the idea work?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm gonna say #3. Happy Blogiversary.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congratulations on your blogaversary! Yay!

    I'm a little late to the party due to a nasty computer virus, but I'll say number four.

    ReplyDelete
  35. *raises hand* I'd fly a kite. Sounds much better than sitting in a stuffy office :)

    Congrats on a fabulous first year.

  36. I have always like this challenge. I say #5--but it is just a guess.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations! Glad you're feeling better. I'm going to pick #5. It's my lucky number.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Congratulations on your first year of blogging! My guess is number 7. I imagine you have a big box or beads in your closet....(only because I have a big...scratch that...huge pile of scrapbooking supplies in my closet).

    I hope you get back to 100% soon!

  39. I'm going with 4, but someone already guessed it.

    Serves me right for taking so long to catch up on blogs.
