Okay, here's the game:

I'm supposed to write 5 little known things about me, one of them being not so much true. Then you guess and it's fun. Then I tag 5 other people and they perpetuate the game throughout all of the interweb.

This is obnoxious, because everyone who is reading this has known me for a LONG TIME. I'm having to dig deep to find non-obvious shit.


1. In my 'tween years, I was the radio commercial personality of Robert's Wallpaper and Paint.

2. I was drinking with Jeff Smoker the night before he got kicked off the football team.

3. In middle school, I self-published a weekly Lions newsletter and tried to sell it to fellow students.

4. In elementary school, if I could manage to pretty much behave myself three days in a row, I got to play checkers against the principal.

5. I recieved a partial college scholarship from the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association, a society for promoting Greek-American studies.

Peace

damn you... I figured #5 was a lock, but I googled AHEPA to be sure (it sounds like something only you would make up...) but either #5 is true or you researched it enough to know that AHEPA was real (Also something you would do...)

I'm still going with it.

Nope! Totally true. I won an essay contest where the topic question was "Explain how the Olympic Games have brought together nations and fostered peace and harmony throughout the ages."

Well, the original Games was a Greek-only affair from about 690 BC until like 70 BC, IIRC. Then, the modern games were started back up at the very tail end of the 1800s. And of course since then, just about every other Olympiad has been marked by terrorism, boycotts, or scandal in some fashion. But hey, I'm nothing if not a bullshitter . . .

Peace
