I was tagged for this meme by Sarcomical and CosmoGRRL and Corinne, so I guess there is no getting out of it. Chris was tagged too, so we decided to switch it up a little bit.

First, Chris wrote my list of weirdnesses and I wrote his list.

Second, only half of the following things are true, the other half we had a lot of fun making up last night. First person to correctly identify which are true and which are false wins their very own Rude Cactus mix cd (likely to feature "Ripple"). Same deal goes over at the hubby's so play early and often.

Here's what Chris said about me and why I am weird, although it was difficult since I am such a normal, rational, regular kinda girl:

1. Beth wears men's boxers. Not mine, because that would, according to her, be unsanitary. But she has her own collection of fine men's boxers. No, I've never borrowed them.

2. When a book is made into a movie, the publisher will often reprint the book with new cover art, usually a shot from the movie. In Beth's words, "that's just wrong." Even if it is the most interesting, well-reviewed book on the face of this good earth, Beth won't buy it. Instead, she'll dig around for an older copy or will simply refuse to buy a copy at all.

3. Beth is unusually obsessed with Abraham Lincoln. It's unclear where her fascination with Honest Abe began but he is, apparently, a historical hottie and quite interesting to boot.

4. Whereas most of us fear spiders or snakes, Beth is terrified of puppets. I can't get my head around it but even the Muppets are forbidden within these four walls. We're going to have to get her into aversion therapy before all the puppet-driven kid shows become popular around here.

5. Beth makes a habit, during what little idle time she has, of drafting important speeches and conversations covering issues with which she will, most likely, never deal. Such as Mid-East peace. She has an extensive range of topics already covered should you ever find yourself negotiating aformentioned peace deals, discussing humanitarian missions with the UN Secretary General or addressing the Queen of England.

6. You know those vents and fans in bathroom ceilings? Beth's convinced there are cameras hidden in those, regardless of the type of establishment hotels, movie theaters, churches, even home. And if there aren't cameras hidden inside, there are bugs. So, whenever we stay in a hotel, she covers them up with towels.

I think you made all of them up, except the one about the boxers.


Tough one, but I'm gonna guess that 1, 2, and 6 are true.

1,2, and 6 are true. And, personally, I don't think 2 is all that weird. Although, that may just be because that's how I feel about it. Hate the stupid movie covers.

I'm guessing 1,2, and 3 (because I'm from Abe Lincoln country)

i saw 1, 4, and 6 are true, just to be different. i thought the puppets one was true and i also thought number 2 was true, so i went with 4. so 1, 4, and 6. e-mail me and i'll send you my mailing address for the mix cd. ;)

I think 1, 2, and 4 are true.

(And if 6 really is true, I'd like to know how the hell you manage to cover ANYTHING on the CEILING.)

I'm going to guess that 3, 4, and 5 are lies. And I'm assuming #2 (heh) is a truth simply because that's exactly my feelings on the subject.

I think 1, 3, and 4 are the lies, although this was really hard because I didn't think this list was that weird. Especially #5, because, um, I might do that. Maybe.

I'm going to say 1, 2, and 6 are true. I hope 2 is true because I do the same thing; it would be nice to know I have company.


I think 2, 4, and 6 are true partly because they would be mostly true for me. 1, 3, and 5, while really not all that bizarre sound a little too structured for someone who spends all their time obsessing over Chapstick and searching for the perfect pet duck!

I think 4,5,6 are true.

1,2,and 6 are true.

3,4,and 5 are lies.

1,3 and 5 are false.

3, 5 and 6 are false.

If 2 and 4 are true, then we have quite a bit in common because I am terrified of puppets, and I hate the movie covers on books.

I'd say 1, 2, and 6 are true.

I was thinking 1,2 & 6 - and it seems I am not alone in these choices. Although #4 is a definite possibility. So, I'm not first but I needed to weigh in.

3, 5, & 4 are false

I say that 1, 4 and 5 are lies
which means that 2, 3, and 6 are truths.

2,4, and 6 are true

truth: 1, 2, 6

I think 1, 2, and 5 are true. And "ripple" is the best!

1, 3 and 4 fibs?

I can relate to the hidden cameras (and microphones)

Lies: 1, 3 & 4

Truth: 2, 5 & 6

My vote is that #'s 3, 4 and 6 are FALSE!!!!

hmmm...truths: 1, 2, 4

lies: 3, 5, 6


i'm hoping that #2 is true...because i 100% agree with this. movie poster covers on books. wrong. wrongity. wrong. wrong.

Okay the lies are 1,3 & 6.
Wich now that I think of it are the same numbers I picked as lies over at the hubbys place!
Great twist on the meme!

I think 3, 5 & 6 are lies. And I'm going with #6 mainly because I can't figure out how you'd get a towel to cover a bathroom vent/fan that's in the ceiling - wouldn't the towel fall?

And now that I think about it, I'm tempted to say #3 is true and it's actually #4 that is false, but I'm sticking with my first instinct.

I just had to comment that I'm behind you 100% on #2. If #2 is, in fact, true.

Most of them look like lies to me. You guys are creative, fer shur. Ther truths are 2 (because I do the SAME THING), 4 because it sounds mildly irrational, and 5, because the end of 6 ruined it for me.

i'm going with 1, 2, and 6. But especially 2 as that is not at all wierd as i do it all the time. Down with the movie tie-in covers. down I say...

I have to go with truth as # 1,2,6 because I can see truth behind them. Although an Abe Lincoln infatuation is cool. HE used to put things in his hat, like letters and speeches and I am sure Condoms.

I think 2, 3 and 4 are real. :)

I gotta go with 1, 2 and 4 as truths leaving 3, 5 and 6 as lies. And I am in total agreement on 1 & 2.

yup, you're a freak and you married one too.
oh well.

Hard one. But I'll go with 3,5, & 6 being false. Very funny.

3, 4, & 5 false
1, 2, &6 true

2, 3 and 4 are true? Totally with you on number 2, you know what's even worse though? When a film comes out and they make a novel out of it. I remember finding the novelisation of films in my local library as a teenager and being really disappointed at how badly written they were.

1, 2, and 6 are true. I am exempting myself from officially playing, though, having so recently won a contest here :).

I think 1, 5, and 6 are the lies.

I saw this over at Rude Cactus and think it is so cute! I know I'm way late guessing, but I'll take my guesses aynway, just to see if I'm right or wrong. :o)

Lies: 3, 4, 5
Truth: 1, 2, 6

Fun game!

1, 3 and 5 are LIES!!

Awww, everyone got here before me. I'm guessing 3, 4 & 5 are NOT true. Although... chuckle.

I'm on the bandwagon that 1,2,6 are the truths.

i'm guessing 3, 4, and 5 are all TOTAL AND COMPLETE LIES. ;)

but you guys have to post the truths soon here. can't take the guessing.


I am with you on numbers 2 and 6. Books when made into movies are never as good and I don't want the crappy movie art on a book. Yes, there are cameras hidden in the air vents, but I am too short to put a towel up.

1. F
2. T
3. F
4. T
5. F
6. T

I don't like how they're every other one though so I'm pretty sure I screwed up somewhere. Hmph. I hate the "movie-cover books" too. Blech.
