For this week's Friday fun thread, I challenge everyone to post three things about themselves -- two that are true, one that is a lie.
I'll get us started in the answers section and see if you can guess what I'm lying about. :)
1. I went to university with one of Atlassian's Leadership Team
I wrote the question while sitting in a bar on Bold Street, which is, as Helen Russel can attest to, a road every alumni of Liverpool University is familiar with.
2. I used to make tea for Sandi Shaw
Sandie Shaw worked with my mum when she was training to become a psychotherapist. She often visited mum at home, so I made tea.
3. I got a lift from Richard Hammond (Top Gear) while I was working for the BBC
I signed him through security when his card didn't work. It was my colleague who got the lift.
Hmm, there is such a thing as a helicopter wedding (btw, do they throw the bridal bouquet out of the helicopter to see, who's next? :-) ), but did you do that? Weird, but true, I think.
I've got a feeling that you are interested more in in art, than in oil, don't know why, so I vote for #3.
#1 is the truth. When I was 18 years old, I had a girlfriend. It was the time when I had my coming-out and it was somehow difficult. Years later, she wrote a book about these times and it was released by a big German publisher. Strange feeling to read one's life in a book...
#3 is also true. I grew up in a small village in the German South, far away from every ocean and my parents liked to spend their holidays on mountains.
#2 is the lie, as Monique and Nic guessed. I've never done bungee jumping in my life.
Hi, y'all! I'm brand-new to the Atlassian team (Day #5 woop woop!). So hopefully, my truths are still shrouded in at least a little bit of mystery. Here goes:
1. I've authored three, 200+ paged Harry Potter FanFiction novels
2. My grandparents are professional Bridge players which is why my parents named me Bridget
3. I don't have a spleen
#1. (Sticking with @Stephanie Grice's stephen king theme....) My grandmother lives down the road from Stephen King's home in Maine.
#2. I am an absolute adrenaline junkie - sky diving, roller coasters, swimming with sharks, you name it, I'm there.
#3. I play the pipe organ. yeah, like this. Yeah, for FUN.
you're both wrong.
I do indeed play the organ... and it put me through college.
And.... I freakin' love roller coasters. Zip lines. Shark swimming. Bungee jumping. Meetings with @Monique van den Berg. Anything that gets adrenaline going.
(and my grandmother doesn't live near Stephen King... but my ex's does!)
When you need a quick pick-me-up, what do you turn to? It could be as simple as a piece of chocolate, a cup of tea, a funny YouTube video. Share your go-tos below!
