In Good Geeks! I posted five statements to prove I was a geek at school and then asked you to tell me which was the lie. Lots of you had a go and it was great fun reading the reasons behind your choices. Here are the statements again, with the answers.
3. My first crush was on James T. Kirk. True. However, it did not last long; I fell into an unrequited love with a boy called Jon who was two years older than me. He was the coolest lad in school and had hair just like the 80s pop singer Limahl.
4. I once made a model of the Starship Enterprise with cardboard and stickyback plastic. True. It wasn't very good, but I had my own Starship Enterprise and that was what mattered.
5. I learnt how to draw a model of a nuclear reactor in case it came up in my physics exam. True. Unbelievably we studied nuclear fusion, learnt how to draw a diagram of a nuclear reactor, and it was one of my exam questions. Don't ask me to draw it now - I dismissed the memory long ago.
Congratulations to all the bloggers who correctly guessed the lie.
Now on to my Finding FEMA post and the $10 award offered for the funniest location of a Famous Enunciating Male Actor, who was of course William Shatner. It was a tough decision to make, as so many of your suggestions were hilarious. But the one that made me laugh the loudest was Liz P's 'Ellie, we all know he's with you!'.
Congratulations Liz. I shall contact you shortly to arrange your prize.
If anybody is interested, Mr. Shatner was really in Auckland over the weekend. Now that might make me look like a stalker but I read it on his Twitter account. Honest.
Have a fabulous Sunday.
