PS...UNLESS at any point in the conference you were wearing a really sexy red dress. If you wore a sexy red dress while there, then I would revise my guess to be that only number 4 is false and the rest are true.

But I really hope number 4 is false because Jessica Simpson?? Eeeuuuwwww!

3 and 4 are false

Has your editor called you back about #9 yet?

I'm on the 4&5 team, but would like to THINK that 8 is also false, because YUCK, what an odious thing to have to think about happening.

4&6 are false. The rest sound true to me! (C'mon, she could be Jessica Rabbit! Just dye the hair red, add gravity defying dress and voila!) ;)

I wish I had been at the conference if only to be there with you for #14. I've heard all about diatom bioluminescence but never seen it in person. We could've jumped up and down on the beach together (but hopefully without 4 inch heels). I can't believe you actually ATE diatomaceous earth. You mean you weren't joking when you wrote about that ages ago? Poor tulip!

I say only #5 is false. Though I think #4 is too, but perhaps it is a trick! AHA! You can't fool me.

My final answer: Only #5 is false.

I sincerely hope that number 14 is true. Because I've read it 8 times, and laughed each and every time. One of those times, I think I peed, a little.

I had a best friend who was funny like you are. But then she decided she wanted to be a Slimy Embezzler when she grew up, and now she's passing time in the POKEY. Tends to suck the wit right out of you, I'm thinking.

Okay, here goes. I'll say 3, 4, 5 & 12 are false.

Only 2 is false. Your nose is much straighter than hers.

5 and 13.

Amstel Light? No. Just no. Prettier drinks I'm sure. Not light beer. Even if it is an import.

1, 4, & 5 are false.

I almost went to this conference. Damn, it sounds like fun. You're not coming up to Asheville for the NC Writers Conference in November, are you?

So, did you drop your nametag in the potty? Or just in the bathroom?

I think only #4 is false and all the rest are true. And as someone who HAS been told she looks like Jessica Rabbit, I sincerely hope you have too, because it's a fun experience.

I'm not playing, cause you said I couldn't. But I'm dying here--who was the woman in #8? Just give a quicky description & I'll try to puzzle it out.

Posted by Phyllis at October 18, 2005 6:56 AM

Just 5 is false...

Posted by Donna at October 18, 2005 7:54 AM

Wait, spiders are patient?

Hey Joss, I'm sure it's too late to win the contest, but I just wanted to say you owe me a keyboard... I spit mocha all over it while I was laughing...

Also wanted to tell you that I used your title as an example today in an article I wrote about creating titles:

Posted by Martha O'Connor at October 18, 2005 1:26 PM

It's ALL TRUE and I know this because FUNNY THINGS ALWAYS HAPPEN TO YOU and someday I want to be reincarnated as YOU except for the newts.

Posted by Jilly at October 18, 2005 6:34 PM

There's a title: "You, Except for the Newts"
