Randomness Quiz

So Forgive me if this is not a new or original idea/concept…

But a lot of people seem somewhat ‘keen’ on a new post and this is something i can ‘fit in’ as a quick ‘fill-in’.

(before i tackle some more serious stuff).

 

The idea is i put up a bunch of Random statements about me some of which are true and have really occured and some of which have not and are not ‘real’.

You get to choose which of ten things you think are things that did happen in my life, so far ( and which, if any i hope will one day?)

 

Ready? Here goes anyway – have ‘fun’ y’all.

 

1. I was born in Staffodrshire, England in the ‘fifties’.

2. I was born the illegitimate heir to the Wedgewood (pottery) fortune and estates but my parents did not want me to grow up corrupted and so moved to Australia to ensure i never laid claim to them.

3. Before emigrating i sang in the London Schoolboys Choir at St Pauls Catherdal on more than one occasion.

4. In England ( no Sun) i had freckles. In Australia ( nothing BUT Sun) i lost them.

5. In the 80’s i worked for 7 months as a bandicoot sexer, separating male bandicoot eggs from the female ones.

6. i wear a US sized 13 shoe ( Aus sized 12).

7. In a nationwide TV survey designed to test IQ based upon age and abilities i scored in the top 5% of the country and scored higher than any of the ‘famous’ Australians who took part in the show.

8. I was voted ‘cuter than a teddy bear’ at the Annual State Pineapple Fair in 2004.

9. I am allergic to pollen. ( not a good thing for a gardener).

10. Apart from the house of my parents i grew up in, the longest i have ever lived in one house (including my own i was buying) is 19 months and have had over 30 different addresses in 23 years.

 

and for a Bonus ‘point’…

I have lived some part of my life on 3 different continents – so far. Name them.

  1. False:

    2. I was born the illegitimate heir to the Wedgewood (pottery) fortune and estates but my parents did not want me to grow up corrupted and so moved to Australia to ensure i never laid claim to them.

    I can see you perhaps doing something illegitimate. such as stealing flowers from a neighbor :), but I just can’t picture you as a “Wedgewood”.

    4. In England ( no Sun) i had freckles. In Australia ( nothing BUT Sun) i lost them.

    I don’t know if a person can “lose” freckles. Even if you can I would think being in the sun would bring out the freckles.

    5. In the 80’s i worked for 7 months as a bandicoot sexer, separating male bandicoot eggs from the female ones.

    My guess is that bandicoots are live born and not from eggs, at least I have never seen “fresh bandicoot eggs” sold anywhere. 🙂

    8. I was voted ‘cuter than a teddy bear’ at the Annual State Pineapple Fair in 2004.

    You do look a little like a teddy bear, but I am not sure you are cuter than one. 🙂

    I will guess that 1,3,6,7,9 and 10 are true:

    Bonus Question:

    I have lived some part of my life on 3 different continents – so far. Name them.

    Australia and Europe you have posted about. If this is a trick question I would guess Antarctica, except that is a place you can visit, but not live, unless you are doing scientific research. America seems like too much of an easy guess so I will say Asia, perhaps in Hong Kong, when the British ran the place or India.

I’m too competitive to even attempt for fear of second guessing and having my first guess be right and my second guess be wrong and no one believe I was right with my first guess not my second guess.

  12. OK Results are up!….

    i made it a 50/50 test – half were true and half i made up out of a wicked sense of humoUr 🙂

    sorry to disappoint those who believed me to be NOTHING but ‘honest’ and all were ‘true’ 😦

    The TRUE answers were 1,4,6,7and 10 while the bonus point was also ‘True’ and the three were Europe, Australia and for a VERY short time – Asia ( Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur)

    When i have more time i will scavenge the comments to announce who won 🙂

    Oh and Bwan??? how can a mom of three get so ‘nervous’??? 🙂 I thought you could handle ANYTHING after projectile vomiting kids in a restaurant?? 🙂

    Sis and Tam???? did NOT mean to make either of you that anxious – was just for FUN 🙂 Tammy need an air-sick-bag??
