the truth

Well that was fun!
You are all wonderful guessers...

It's true - I have never seen a single episode of Conan. I've never seen a Conan the Barbarian movie either. Neither of these facts would keep me from discussing their hair, though, Amy.

I've eaten pudding - though never rice or bread pudding*. I HAVE HAD VANILLA PUDDING.
But now that I think about it, only as a cake filling. But, still, a lie.

I DID walk around a track, in the rain and mist, for 12 hours in the Relay for Life a few years ago.
I started off pretty psyched - and I don't remember what shoes I was wearing in the beginning, but I know I called Oldest at about one in the morning and that he brought my Birkenstocks to me. It wasn't a very big track and we had to switch directions with some frequency so we didn't get sore. As time wore on and I grew tired and frustrated, I told myself that I was doing it for a friend of mine who has survived two bouts of breast cancer. When I told her I had done it with her in mind she told me I was crazy - that she didn't believe in acts of charity like relays for life.





*My boys are, at this very moment, arguing that I have eaten bread pudding. I disagree but I may have psychologically blocked it.

Conan was always too late for me--now that he is just tonight, and not late--I could probably stay up long enough to watch!

So - then the question is why haven't don't you eat pudding?

I sort of don't understand the concept of walking or running for charity. I have pledged money for someone who walked and I paid per mile, but I could have given her a donation without the walking...

I just don't get it. Why do people do this? Is it because the event generates publicity for the cause?

Anyway, you are a very kind and principled person.

I'm glad you spoke up, Anonymous, because I had a whole paragraph that I deleted from this post about how I don't understand the concept of the charity walk either...

I did not guess this right, bummer.

I didn't guess correctly either. Conan is funny though. You might be missing out. And my goodness, you weren't a Jay Leno fan were you?

Two truths and a Lie is a staple game on the NOLS courses I teach. Generally, it's the students guessing an instructor truths/lie. It can be quite fun.

I recommend Conan the Barbarian, if you have to choose.
