Four truths and a lie

Because you people love these so, here's another battery of factoids plus one falsehood.

a) I don't like to wake up on a zero or a five so I set my alarm for weird numbers

b) I wrote the first cover story of No Doubt to run in a national magazine

c) In college, I lived in the dorm that was the exterior of Eastland from Facts of Life

d) I hosted a radio show after college

e) My hair is naturally curly

I'm going with factoid B - mainly because I don't believe you're old enough to have written such a story.

If I did my homework correctly on this one, I would have to choose C. Reason being,you went to Pomona college in Claremont,Ca. The Facts of Life was first filmed in Hollywood for a period of time, and then in Burbank,Ca.

I was leaning heavily on the first answer about the numbers thingie. I was torn on it because I don't yet know how you feel about structure versus stickin' it to the Man. You probably have a little Rebel in ya'.

Upon further review, my previous answer turned out to be a truth. Reason being, I went away and thought about it and realized that you already used C. as the answer to your previous post. There was no way you were gonna use C. back to back. Having said all that, I am going to choose a different answer which I choose, D. I don't have any reasoning behind it. Just an educated guess.

But speaking of the college you went to. I read about the number 47phenomenon, and I gotta tell ya', that was extremely interesting. I had never heard of Ponoma before, but it has a great history and tradition as well. I was very impressed.

It sucks being late to Alison's games but I'm here and actually Michael's comments helped me decide:

Now, you have commented about sleep several times so A is believable.

I confirmed B off the net.

You've done radio in New York so D is totally believable.

I couldn't picture you with curly hair but I'm confident in your curling iron abilities.

So my final answer is C. That would be way to weird of a reason to choose a college...even though you are the biggest fan of that show.

Claremont must be a great writers school or something...I've never heard of it but hopefully it was in a decent area of Pomona. Are there any besides Phillip's Ranch?

Hey Ted, my first answer was wrong bro. (Don't tase me bro.) I couldn't resist. Anyhoo, I was able to verify that C. was not the answer. I specifically read that it was true, so it's an actual fact of life. <----------Do you see what I just did there? THAT WAS THE MOTHER OF ALL WORD PLAYS. No,no. Don't bow down to the master yet. I'm a humble genius. Is that an oxy-moron? No, it's not. I just like saying oxy-moron.

So anyway, enough of that blaterhing, if what you say is true Ted,about her radio stint, then I guess the logical answer would be the hair thingie.

That is my final answer Ali. Since I don't have anymore life lines to use. Ha! I made a funny. I've pretty much named them all, so I'm covered. I hate being wrong at anything.

Now then, I have to move on from all that. I gotta lay that baby to rest. I wanna go back to what I said yesterday about your first ever post on this paricular blog. Today, I went back and read each and every post you made in addition the comments. It was cool to see how this blog has evolved. What I was able to uncover was what your middle name is. I've always been kinda curious. I also saw where you had all these people using your blog to promote their products, from porn to insurance. As I was reading it, I was like, "Man Ali must feel so violated." These people had no shame. And no, I didn't do this from the vantage point of a stalker. I just don't have anything I need to address today. (A partially sophisticated way to say I was bored.)

P.S. I need to make a correction from my 11:34 a.m. I misspelled Pomona.

Ted from Accounting said...

Your kidding Michael! That is crazy! I'm humming The Facts of Life theme song as I type! WOW

Ok, then before the polls close, I'm going with the curly hair answer as well. I need a correct answer this time!

Hmmmm, I sent a post earlier but maybe it didn't make it throgh...

I had narrowed it down to C or D and then guessed it was C. But now that Michael says he knows for a fact C is true, I'll go back to D.

I suspect you hair is curly because Julie Banderas' hair looks just like yours, and hers is crazy curly.

Final answer: D

More blathering. For the record, and by my calculations this is the record. Last night, I did what I said I was going to do. I boycotted all news media channels in protest of them cancelling Red Eye in which you were to appear. And as we all know,if one person boycotts then that translates into 2,000.000 people. I can't substantiate that, but I bet I'm in the ball park. What did I do to fill in my time you may be wondering,but most likely not? I continued reading a book that I recently started. It's titled, "The Merciful God of Prophecy.* The author is Tim LaHaye. He's the one who writes/co-writes the "Left Behind" series for those of you who may not know. After getting extreme eye strain from not wearing glasses, I watched a little Letterman,Leno,Kimmel, and Conan. I bounce around depending on who the guests are. But mostly because I'm a guy, and I like to channel surf.

This is the most anticipated thing I've ever been apart of. That includes that whole Y2K saga. It's akin to turning in a college thesis and having to wait for the results. Only difference here is, we got to cheat off each other.
I hope we're graded on a curve here. I need the additional help on this one. The degree of difficulty is increasing.

It's funny Michael...I'm fortunate to be able to do work at home as well as deliver pizzas...I find myself continually checking this post for updates...LOL

After reading your last comment, I clicked back to the main page and it was like Alison's picture was saying, "Oh you silly men! Your wrapped around my lil' finger!" For real look at her pic again! :)

I think you're right Ted. It's like one of those Discovery Channel shows where it shows an ant population, or you can use bees as well. The little worker bees go through all this strife to make sure the Queen Bee is well taken care of and protected. Their whole life revolves around her. Little do they no, at the end, they usually have an unfortunate death. But,they seem to embrace their fate. Their life would have been fulfilled. What's really sad is that they only get one opportunity to sting something. Then that's it. I just wonder if they know this in advance, and they say to themselves, "This sting is well worth my demise."

Is that not the longest analogy in like the whole wide world?

Ok, it's not my place to do so,but I'm one of those kind of people that will take certain liberties. Nothing serious. Just a friendly reminder that tonight is the season finale on The Real World. I'm excited yet sorrowful at the sametime. This one has been a good year. I will add that Couhatta has represented we/us southerners in a very positive light. Don't be fooled though into thinking we all have that same southern drawl. It varies.

Alrighty then, I'm gonna make this last comment, then I need to go be pro-active©. by being pro-active© I mean I'm going to go wash my hair with pro-active©. (That's cha-ching to the third power, or cubed if you prefer.) I need to go on Donnie Deutch sometime. But forget all that. What I was going to say was, I just read tonight's Greg-a-louge and it is HILLARIOUS! If you're able, go check it out. DailyGut.com©. More importantly, Joe/spaceagent is going to be thrilled because Julie Banderas will be on. I believe that's his favorite hottie. So, I'm officially clocking out for awhile. I need to go search for my Izod© pajamas.

Correction: That should have read "wash my face* not my hair. I'm such a silly goose.
