Well my thanks (I think) to Joshua Reynolds for tagging me on this meme-virus thing.

So now I must now list six outrageous lies and one truth about myself (or vice-versa), then afflict six others. As I am a champion of truth I will choose to do the Vice-versa. So here are six absolute truths and one outrageous lie:

1.) I met William Shatner at an event in Vancouver called the "Lift for Life" celebrating Rick Hansen's "Man in Motion" tour. I walked up to him, shook his hand and blathered something about Captain Kirk being my boyhood hero. He thanked me and I went back to where I had been sitting with a group of people wearing Starfleet Uniforms.

2.) I have stood six feet away from J.R.R. Tolkien. (or at least what remained of him after having been dead for years).

3.) I once peed on the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

4.) I once told Spider Robinson a pun so bad it made him laugh and pretend to bang his head on a restaurant table.

5.) I once tricked a room full of klingons into whistling the theme to the Andy griffith Show.

6.) I once rudely interrupted Bryan Adams in order to talk to two British actresses. (Amanda Donohoe and Sammi Davis)

7.) I was once made into a vampire. While I was being transformed the room filled up with other vampires and I was inducted into their society. I then went into a lounge and ordered a Bloody Mary and spent the rest of the evening drinking with Raymond E. Feist.

(I should point out that the vampire thing didn't take and I am no longer one of the undead.)

So it's up to you to figure out which is the outrageous lie. It's probably not the one you think.

I'm supposed to tag six people but I don't think I'm gonna do that. I'll just send a shout out to my good buddy G. W. Thomas at Dark Worlds. I'm sure he's got some stories.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

It's the klingon thing, isn't it? Everyone knows klingons can't whistle...

Surprisingly the Klingon story is true. I can provide eywitnesses. Try again.

Is it the Bryan Adams story? You surely wouldn't stop talking to him in order to talk to Amanda 'I don't have time for fans' Donohoe or Sammi Davis?

It's got to be that one; LIE!

am I right?

All these are true except for #3. I never - NEVER - peed on the grounds of Buckingham Palace. I would have, though, if they'd ever actually let me on the grounds.

All the rest actually happened.
