Friday Fact or Fiction Fun!

Letter F

If I am lying, will his nose grow?

For “F”, I figured we could have a little fun.

Some of you know me well, others not at all. But here are five fun flights o’ fancy for you to figure out: fact or fiction?

First follower to get ’em all right by 5pm EST gets something fabulous! CONTEST OVER!


1. I recently completed my first novel about a widowed librarian and a reclusive rock star conquering the ghosts of their pasts and falling in love.

Book Love

Yay, a book of my own! I've always wanted to write a novel.

2. Like What Not To Wear‘s Stacy London, I’ve had a natural gray streak in my hair since I was twelve years old.

Here I am. See my streak?

3. There was a time when I had more tattoos on my body than tattoo artist and reality show siren Kat Von D.


Here is Kat. See her tats?

4. The first kiss I ever received from a boy was by this guy:

Ozzy circa 1984

Here is Ozzy. Did my lips touch bat-biting lips?

5. I scored a perfect 800 on my verbal SAT in high school.

SAT verbal

books = brains for me?

Fact or Fiction?

**UPDATE** M won my challenge, as she guessed the most right answers by the time deadline. M, feel free to email me at jesstopper at gmail, or leave your email address in a comment below (with spaces to hopefully fool the spam-bots) and I will get in touch with you about your prize!

The answers are:

1) TRUE. I did write this very book, and hopefully it will see the light of day, someday!

2) FALSE. No, my streak isn’t natural from 12 years old. I started dying my random grays at age 32, then stopped dying at 39, 2 years ago. And lo! There it was. I would like to be like Rogue, though.

3) TRUE. According to Kat’s Wiki page, she was born in 1982 and got her first tat at age 14. So the year would have been 1996. And I got my first (and only) tattoo in 1994. So there was a time when I had 1 tattoo than she still had zero! Tricky, eh?

4) TRUE. Yes, Ozzy was the first guy I ever kissed. The year was 1984, I was 13 and he was my favorite singer at the time. I met him at an autograph signing and I remember my young self thinking, ‘If you don’t ask him for a kiss, you will regret it forever.’ So I asked, he said, ‘Sure, sweetheart’ and he gave me a chaste peck on the lips.

5) FALSE: I bombed the verbal SAT. LOL Oh well…I’ve redeemed myself since!

Anyway, thanks for allowing me to tickle your brains a bit with my wacky facts!

    I am jealous, but I won’t tell you of what “fact”! YOU figure it out. 😉

  2. 1.True
    2. True– I have one too, but it came in around 16. Now all my hair is pretty much gray, but I dye it.
    3. False
    4. True
    5. True
    I’m just guessing on all of these.

    OK – I am just guessing on some of these. 1. True, 2. True, 3. False, 4. False, 5. True

    I am enjoying reading your blog every morning!

    Ok, I might as well try:
    1. True
    2. True
    3. False
    4. False
    5. False
    Cute idea for the letter F!

  5. M says:

    This is total guessing since I’ve never been here before (though I love your theme!). Beginner’s luck??

    True, True (like X-Men’s Rogue, right?), False, True (why not? My first kiss was a peck from the singer of Stabbing Westward!), False!

    • jesstopper says:

      M, you are the closest so far – 3 right! Pam and Merritt are tied with 2 correct, Jen had 1 right.
      If no one gets all 5 by 5 tonight, we’ll go with the closest one. Feel free to try again! 🙂 And thanks for being such good sports.

    • jesstopper says:

      M, you were the closest to come to answering them all correct by 5pm – you were right about my book, my Ozzy kiss (cool about your Stabbing Westward kiss, btw) and my SAT scores! I posted the answers up top.
      You can email me at jesstopper at gmail or leave your email here (with spaces to hopefully fool the spam-bots) and I will get in touch about your prize.

    I guess it would be cheating if I gave it a go, huh? lol

    I have LOVED every entry so far. Beautiful, and fun writing!
