Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics


Now I see the danger of ever tagging. [No, not in the graffiti sense. In the meme sense.] Melanie tagged me back, even admitting to doing so vengefully, with another one. This is one where I tell you nine things about me. Eight are true. One is not. Can you guess which one is not true? Real F&B friends of mine need not reply. [What the hell is F&B? Flesh & blood.]

1. Speaking of tagging, in college, some friends and I once spray painted something nasty about a coach on a big rock near one of the college’s fields. The only thing is we misspelled her name.

2. For close to two years, I ran a survey research center which, among other projects, conducted 8,000 40-minute telephone interviews with people throughout the United States. The subject? Sex.

3. I blew the whistle on a top executive at a company I worked for because I felt he was a dishonest bastard who needed to be stopped.

4. None of my pregnancies could be considered planned.

5. When I moved to Hawaii, I toyed with changing my name to P.J., but I settled on going with Patty with a “y” rather than the “i" I had been using.

6. I saw “Star Wars” at a late-night showing on its opening day. And I saw it for free.

7. For some of my friends, I was the kid who their parents tried to stop them from hanging out with in high school.

8. I kissed Bruce Springsteen in a bar on the Jersey Shore in the summer of 1980.

9. By the end of my freshman year of college, I was one of only two known virgins in my 100-person dormitory.
I'm not going to escalate it and open myself up to more, so consider yourself tagged if you want to be!

I'm going to guess #1... I don't think you'd misspell the name of a person you disliked enough to mock publicly.

It is interesting that the one fact about yourself that is not true, is actually true, but for someone else (namely, me!!) This will be interesting to see what people think!

I'm gonna have to pass on the guessing, since this is the first time I've popped over...but I might have to steal this meme...could be fun....[insert mischievous laughter here!]

I don't think you kissed Bruce Springstien, but I wonder if its one of two others. You said people didn't want their kids hanging around you, yet you were a virgin in college..... hmmm. I guess you could have been bad in other ways, hehe.
When are you going to spill the beans?

I'm torn between #1 and #8. I guess I'll go with #8.

I'm thinking you were way too young to have been kissing any boys in 1980.

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
