The first one to find ALL 5 Lies wins a Cake Badge! [or if you want to spoil my portal referencing fun i can give you 80 points instead!]
THE CAKE IS NOT A LIE!!
you found the liiies!!! and now i will elaborate
1. I knocked out a boys front teeth with a recorder [musical instrument] when i was in primary school.
Yes, this happened, I was waiting for the bus in the locker room and a school mate had unscrewed the top mouth piece of a recorder and proceeded to blow into it repeatedly inches away from my face after i asked him to stop, i pushed him away (recorder first) as i turned to run away from him and knocked out his two front teeth. It was the only time i have actually ever hurt someone one and i didn't mean to, my intention wasn't to knock out his teeth but to get him and his high pitched annoying noise out of my face. Though i don't deny this should be a lesson learnt for him.
2. I got into trouble once for purposefully sharpening pencils so i could harvest the pencil shavings as my best friend was collecting them at the time.
Yup, again true, in primary school my 'best friend' and coincidentally the only other girl in my year started collecting pencil shavings and asked me to help. Someone who especially didn't like me told on a teacher and i got in trouble.
3. I have a scar in the shape of a √ on my knee.
Yup, when i was in primary school [ you see a theme here? ] the fastest boy in the school challenged me to a race and i wanted to try my best, i was awful at sports and really thought that if i put my all into it there was a chance i would win, this challenge was accepted right after our teacher told us not to run and i tripped and fell on a big spiky rock. Lots of blood i remember my mother complaining i should have had stitches but they just took me home.
4. I once choked on a ice cube, thankfully they melt.
This was in secondary school, year 7 or 8, i was at home writing a project about coral snakes and was sucking a ice cube i suddenly inhaled and the thing lodged itself at the back of my throat.. i couldn't breathe in or out and it was so scary, i remember my lungs trying to get air but nothing and i froze looking at the backs of my parents heads as they were watching tv, i don't exactly remember how but it must have melted and dislodged though i dont remember the process most of my memory is the horrid feeling of trying to breathe but nothing moving... however when it evacuated my mouth it literally shot out and bouned off a nearby wall onto the carpet.
5. I'm Agnostic.
Yes I am.
6. I have been on the local news once, walking away from the camera and turning back scowling as i didn't know they were filming me and they put it in the broadcast.
I was in primary school on a field trip, all i remember is walking beside my 'friend' - she said that there was cameras around and people were filming i looked back as i was in a bad mood and when we came to see it on the news the news - it was only like a second or two long and they where just showing footage of a place we went to visit that day, it was just a coincidence but i do remember the footage and feeling super embarrassed as i was like scowling at the 'viewers'.
7. I once was asked by a teacher to teach the entire school [Years 3,4,5 and 6] an art class after i showed the teacher a picture of a wolf howling at the moon.
This needs context badly, bear in mind i went to a very rural school, and in the infant side there where only 10-15 students, in the primary side it was years 3-6 which was about 25-30 people. and i got a lot of help from the teacher but i did have to stand up and explain my process and such and it was only to the primary side of course and our school would often do things like that.
8. I once set fire to our kitchen because a frying pan set fire while i was using it.
So lies! However i have set fire to a pan, thankfully after flapping my arms i took the thing outside and then ran back in to wet a tea towel and smother it XD but i did not set fire to our kitchen! yay me.
9. When we first got the internet in the dial up days i racked up a bill of over £400 for my parents within the first month.
This is true, back in the days when we got our first contract it was PAY AS YOU GO. As in, we would pay for usage per minute and get auto disconnected every 2 hours.. urgh the fact they managed to get us internet is freaking miracle tbh. My parents were not happy, we were not rich even if we lived in a big house, my dad was my mother carer after she had a nervous breakdown years after moving. My dad did odd jobs for people like DIY stuff, car stuff and later on computer stuff s i felt REALLY BAD also i paid it back in the sense after this i no longer got pocket money, well not for a long loooooong time XD
10. I only revised once in my life.
I'm not proud of this but it is true, i only revised once in my life for a exam, only because my friend suggested we do it together, hmm maybe that like should have had for an exam on the end of that lie DX because of course coursework i had to look into workbooks and such but ive never really sat down revised for exams. At the time i was not interested in learning about stuff which is a shame because now i find a lot of history and science fascinating.. math not so much but yeah.. sad but true.
11. I had a pet chicken when i was younger and it used to fall asleep on my lap.
I did!! as we had a larger garden we kept some chickens, and this one was a bantam, he was adorable but he got picked on by the other birds for some reason, so i would feel bad for him and bring him up to my room. when i was sick and in bed [and i was a lot when i was young orz] my parents would lay a tea-towel on my lap and bring him up, i would pet him slowly and he would make such cute noises and often just fell asleep, i loved that chicken.
12. I quit art college after less than 3 months.
Sad but true, but then maybe i wouldn't be doing what im doing now and with who im with but it is a shame i didn't take the opportunity i was handed. I was put in a different course to the one i wanted to be in but what sadly really did it for me was one of my best friends who joined with me pretty much found a girlfriend and instantly a new group of friends and honestly every day i was miserable there. Some of the work was fun but i felt insanely restricted even more so than i had been when i dd art for my a level... i guess it wasn't for me.
13. I once went into the church next door to us and snuck upstairs in the steeple and rang the church bell and never got caught.
LIIES! I would never do that, i adored visiting that church and for me it was a total place of peace, whenever i was upset - its doors would be open and the fact that it was vacant just made it all the more a sanctuary for me. My brother on the other hand, he did indeed ring the bell, however he was caught because well duh, there are like 3 houses within half a mile.. and only two troublesome boys around - he did it with a friend.
14. I used to have a imaginary friend whom i could fold up like a piece of paper and carry him around with me.
True! and i even recall his name, i dubbed him Bob! and i remember i used to unfold him and talk to him and then put him away so he was always with me <3
15. I have had my head flushed down a toilet.
Sadly true, this was at a sports day, where all students are enforced to attend, as we lived in the country, and our schools where small, often we would have sports days with other schools and 'compete' i always was awful at sports and instantly everyone hates that, yup i was often last picked xD but thankfully in secordary school i got out of doing P.E. and my bestest friend was with me in a classroom alone for hours <3 so dont pity me XD but yeah i remember we visitied another school and i went into a small outdoor toilet building and well 3 girls decided my hair needed cleaning and well yeah.. it was horrible. I dont think i even told anybody.. well aside from my parents and they just decided that in future i would be sick on sports days.
16. Nobody would play with me in primary school, i used to ask but they always had enough people. Instead i spent my breaktimes finding crying students and bringing them to the teachers.
Yes, this is sadly true, oh my what a woeful picture i do paint, but honestly i wasn't a miserable child. i don't know why, but i was happy alone in my head writing notes to faries in the gardens and letting my teacher post them for me, well, for the most part, i would often just stay indoors and read about greek gods and myths and cats and dogs and ghost stories, ha i even read a mills and boon novel when i was in primary school and had my head teacher raise an eyebrow at me XD i would have only been 8 or 9 XD but yeah.. kids can be cruel and i was such an easy target, i had crazy frizzy hair, because my parents where not rich and i was a second child i had hand me downs, i was always clean though but my clothes where not good enough for my fellow students, i had no brand names and i was also from the south, back when my parents moved a lot of the locals didn't like southerners moving in so their attitudes translated to their children, i was just different. I also wore big nhs glasses and had a bad lazy eye, so i guess nobody wanted to be seen with me lol i remember one day i thought; well fine i'll just find crying people... and take them to the teachers.
I had a 'best friend', the only girl in my year but she would play with the cool kids, she was sporty and popular and she pretty much used me as a skivvy.. i was a bit of a shy child and never stood up for myself D: at school she wasn't too kind but when i saw her at her house she would be nice to me.. but this has a sweet ending, and this really made my heart swell, and also have a angry after thought but whatever.. ranting memories...
My school had a tradition that everyone would write a note about one boy who was set to leave for secondary school and one girl. Now i remember my 'friend' boasting about how she would get more mentions and as i knew she was sporty and popular she would indeed and i didn't really mind too much but i was most scared of not getting at least one, though looking back im sure the teachers wouldn't have allowed that to happen, but i was still worried, what would my parents think of me?... anyway when it was time for the 5 people in my year to leave (my year was comprised of 2 girls and 3 boys) they held a assembly and parents of the ones leaving would attend... anyway.. the students actually remembered that i helped them in their time of need i started to get rather astounded as my friend hardly got mentioned... and amazed that people said things lilke, i like rue because she helped me when i was upset..[and honestly it was mostly that] i wish i could remember every note but i do recall feeling proud that i helped them and remember seeing my parents happy... and also confused as to why the fuck nobody would play with me even after helping them lol but still, it felt like a warm send off and was very unexpected but indeed all true.
17. I love reality TV.
LIIIES. I find it pretty boring actually =0
18. I got myself and my friend accidentally 'high' from paint fumes when painting a side table; we didn't open the window. We ended up playing in the middle of the road splashing in puddles.
Yes all true, this was in secondary school, year 7 or 8.. i had a lovely group of friends and of course because of the age, mostly girls, god forbid if you were friends with a BOY, like, HOLY SHIT if you liked a boy you LIKED A BOY. yafeelsme? sadly i dont see them anymore as i moved and we drifted over the years as time changes all of us.. but one girl was just amazing, she is a talented artist and she was kind, soft and gentle but loved to go wild in a crazy mosh pit xD i truly loved her she was and im sure still is a truly magical person and a humble old wise soul <3 ;u; she even had amazingly beautiful handwriting <3 we really were the best of friends, but yes i unexpectedly gave us gigglefits from light green gloss paint and we ended up putting on big old bellowing horrible tasteless long skirts and sat in the puddles in the road outside splashing happily - i lived in the country, our road was about half a mile long and you had loads of time to move for cars or a tractor... so much GLEE <3
19. I didn't wash my hair with shampoo and conditioner for 3 months.
Yup, this is true. Though technically i had DRY shampoo but no conditioner but it never really felt.. clean if im honest, I HAD BRAIDS ! its pretty impossible to wash hair wrapped wool XD though it never smelt bad i used to spray perfume in the wool and even though my head was itchy my hair looked amazing and i felt so happy with it <3 even though i am shy and dont like the attention but i wish it could be like oh you have bright neon hair.. and? rather than @ ____ @ all the time o__O and OAO often also.
20. I have been in the audience in the TV show; QI.
LIES! HA I WISH!
21. I'm insanely bad with taking tablets and can usually only swallow them with food in my mouth.
Yup all because one time i had like MASSIVE pills to take for stomach migraines and i used to break them in half and one went down super sharp and scratched my throat im such a pansy D: but my head has made swallowing tablets such a big thing now.. perhaps the ice cube incident didnt help toward that D:
22. I own close to 2000 comic books.
This is true i have 4 comic book boxes filled up and two piles i dont have boxes for, half of them are a job lot of various series and the other half i've sought out series to collect, variants as well, im no superfan and have claimed claimed to be, but i love sitting down and reading comics though i don't do it so much now i will sometimes just have a day where i will just read them xD
23. I used to make clothes for one of our dogs and would take her for 'walks' in a pram.
Yes, out poor miniature patterdale terrier.. she was a runt too so she was super tiny and had a lot of issues, she was the size of a mouse when she was born and a rescue dog, i used to cut up old clothing and dress her up and she would just happily sit in the pram probably thinking WTF
24. I once won a cake competition.
LIES; I wish i had mad cake skills.
25. This took me the best part of a freaking hour to do.
True true, the elaboration took longer but it is fun to reminisce and its strange how memories can spark up other ones long since consciously accessed. it was a fun adventure to remember my childhood, dont ask me why my brain went there first it just did, its not something i really think about and i know some of it sounds sad but dont pity me please! overall i've had a happy life, sure shits happened to me that you probably wouldn't like to even guess but that's for another day and for people who i can trust implicitly. but seriously time is always a good healer even in your darkest hours, and i know the lows and the highs and im happy where i am now and so very lucky to have what i have. a house, a father who is my best friend, my boyfriend who i simply cant imagine life without, i dont want to be as comfortable with anybody else as i am with him, his family who have been kind to me, even if living with them had its moments of strife and the joys of watching his neice and nephew grow ;u; they even call me aunty rue, for my best friend, jambles who even though we live miles apart its like nothing has ever changed, even if he did once betray my trust i love him he is like my real brother. I hope that it is true what they say that when you die you get to see your life flashing past your eyes because honestly, if i were to die tomorrow i think i would end with a smile.
Feel free to do this yourself - to cake badge giveaway is optional.
Guess as many times as you want but don't super spam xD
