#1 - When I was young, I had two pet iguanas named Cheyenne and Rufus. FALSE. Growing up, we had two cats, a dog, assorted guinea pigs, fish, and birds, but no iguanas.
#2 - I skipped second grade. FALSE. Okay, not even a grain of truth to that one.
#3 - The first book I ever wrote was about alien body snatchers from the planet Xydor. FALSE. The first book I ever wrote was about aliens from the planet Botchula, but they didn't snatch any bodies.
#4 - I was once suspended from middle school for taking part in a cafeteria food fight. FALSE. I did once get sent to the principal's office in elementary school for taking part in a cafeteria food fight.
#5 - I was once the editor of my high school newspaper. FALSE. I didn't even write for my high school newspaper, though I did write for my middle school newspaper.
#6 - I once sang "On the Good Ship Lollipop" in my school talent show. TRUE. In sixth grade, two friends and I performed "On the Good Ship Lollipop" for my elementary school talent show. We called ourselves Shirley and the Temples. I was our frontman, Shirley. I can't sing at all, so I really don't know what we were thinking.
#7 - I went to high school with Gillian Anderson who played Dana Scully on the X-Files. FALSE. Though she did move to my hometown, Grand Rapids, Michigan, when she was 11, and we were born in the same year. So we could have gone to school together, but we didn't.
Thanks so much to everyone who played along, and congratulations to Old Kitty and Niki, who both guessed correctly!
