two truths and one lie

on this blog, you can learn pretty much everything about me. let’s face it, i’m an open book. yet, i know nothing about you. some of you, yes… but most of you, no.

i thought a great way of getting a gauge on what sort of people read my blog would be a little survey. this could quite possibly turn out pretty lame (if no one participates)… but i’m hoping it will be fun.

in the comment box, give me two truths and one lie about yourself. in a blog post to follow this little survey, i will attempt to guess which is the lie (this is a good opp for some link-love, if you participate).

about me:
1. I am 5ft. 2 inches tall.
2. When I was in high school I was planning to attend college for meteorology.
3. Kenny Rogers is my cousin.

one of those is a lie!
