Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

The Liar's Club

For a little TGIF fun, behold! A game for the masses! Or, like, the twelve of you that read this. (Hi, Mom!) Interestingly, I used to do this game with my high school students during the dreaded "Break the Ice" portion of the second day of classes. (Oh! How I SO don't miss teaching!) Or maybe not so interestingly, actually. Sorry.

Well. This is awkward, isn't it?

ANYHOOS, moving on...

Below are five "Facts" about me, Cat, the Desperate Working Momma. Only, one of them? One of them, guys? Is a TOTAL lie! Complete fabrication! Never happened! El Lie-oh! Lie-a-mundo! LIIIIIIAR!!! So, you know... absolutely untrue. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to ferret out the lie.

The Facts:

1. I am an adrenaline junky and have experienced the thrills of wake-boarding, cliff diving, bungee jumping, and sky-diving.

2. I have seen the movie "Grease" over 350 times. No, really. At the very least. I can quote pretty much any line from the movie. With feeling.

3. I was arrested twice while in my senior year of high school. Luckily, my record, and my lips, are sealed.

4. I once went on a date with and kissed my HAWT first cousin, neither of us (at the time) having any freaking clue we were related. (We hadn't seen each other in years! YEARS! Since we were, like, FIVE, or something! OKAY?!)

5. I love karaoke and can regularly be found belting out such varied songs as Captain and Tenille's "Love Will Keep Us Together," Avril's "Complicated," or "Janis Joplin's "Preacher Man." And sometimes a little "Lady Marmalade" is in order. I do a mean Xtina, y'all. Rawr!

So. Which is the lie? Hmmm?

And if any of you would like to list your own Five Facts, well go for it! It would SO make my day, as well as give me something to do so I can appear "busy."

(Um, any of you lurkers out there can feel free to delurk for this one. I don't bite! Much.)

Don't know you at all, but I guess #1!
Saw your comment on Kristine's sight. Sounds very familiar as I am a big worrier too.

Hmm... tough call. I am going to guess that you didn't kiss your first cousin. (although I secretly hope it's true because that is FUNNY!) I played. You know... 'cause I'm a joiner like that.

Ooh, I love this game! And there is much strategy involved in thinking up the facts...fun!

I think #4 is the lie. I would say #3 but that seems like an obvious choice and so is probably true (like I said, strategy). I hope #2 is true because I am the same way - love that movie.

I'm going to guess #1

You sing? NO! I haven't heard you talk of this Karaoke obsession! ;) hee hee.

It's is one of the many things I love about you!

I don't know. I'm going to guess that you didn't kiss your cousin.

I'm going to have to guess that you didn't kiss your cousin. The others sound like they could fit...I especially love that you were arrested twice in high school. There's not much to do in little towns, is there? Now I'm off to create my own list!

Wow. It's always nice to see how low of expectations people have about you...

And haven't all y'all heard of "kissing cousins"?!

Heh. But speaking of kissing, my lips are-- for all intents and purposes-- sealed! I'm not telling which is the lie... well, not yet, anyway!

Well I would guess the singing one, but who knows. Only you I guess.

I am going outside the box on this one and say #5. Although I could see you singing those songs as well as liking Kareoke...I just have a hunch. I mean Captain and Tenille, cmon. You seem too hip and cool for that.

Blogger not-so-normal mom commented:

I have to say that I, personally, do not think you are too hip for Captain and Tenille!

» 8/05/2005 12:48 PM 
Blogger Cat commented:

Now really, is ANYONE too hip and cool for the Captain and Tenille? I mean, it's the Captain! And Tenille!

Since you know the captain and his toothy wife so well. Do you remember the Bionic watermellon.

I think #2 is a lie. I could go along with "many" times, but 350? No way. Just a guess though!

Blogger Cat commented:

Ern: Just remember, the OCD apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Just sayin'!

William: Thankfully, I was never subjected to the Captain and Tenille Variety Hour, at least not to my recollection, which is where I assume I would have been exposed to this Bionic Watermelon of which you speak. Should I be thankful? Or did I totally miss out?!

I think number one is the lie. Hmmm. Maybe number two... NO. number one.

Aaaaw! Amy, you just TOTALLY made me think of my kids! I miss them SO MUCH!!!

Um... I'll leave HOW you reminded me to your imagination...

I'm guessing number one, just because I don't think I've ever read anything here about that stuff.

Seriously, with the low expectations...

Let's see. Okay. Looks as if FOUR of you have come up with the COMPLETE and UTTER LIE I told about myself!

(Aside: Don't you LOVE it when people say "udder" for "utter"?! I totally do! Makes me giggle!)

No, wait, check that... In actuality, the lie is ALMOST true, or partially true, if that helps. And NO, that's not cheating. It's STRATEGY. Right?

Blogger not-so-normal mom commented:

I counted the responses, (I'm a total nerd) You totally lied about kissing your first cousin. Okay, spill, how is it almost true or kinda true??????
PS. You guessed my lie...I can't save money to save my life, I spend money like its water! Plus, I love my NH and I'm not worried! You are so smart!
