First Crusader Challenge!

Here is the First Crusader Challenge!!! Thanks to Rachael Harrie for coming up with a cool idea!  


Today, I will be telling you:


one secret
one lie
one interesting quirk
one annoying habit
one of my best character traits, and
one of my favourite things in the whole world. 


*********************


Here goes:


I love to sit by the sea, listening to the sea waves, in the summer of course, and read a book.  I'd love to stay there for hours, just relaxing.  With no interruptions.


I don't wear G-strings.  It hurts.  It actually feels like a metal blade slicing my bum.


I hate donuts.  Especially Bavarian flavour.  Totally.


My other half loves to playfully bloviates.  I find it really funny.  I think when he gets funny, it brings out the funny side of me, too!


My husband studies birds. I'd like to ask him what fuliguline is.  Problem is I don't like going out in the cold just to watch birds.  But I do like them. Yes, I do!


When house cleaning gets to me and it gets really annoying, I rabbit a lot, then husband disappears.


**********************


I may have revealed something about me that isn’t strictly true, can you guess what it is?


Don't forget to visit the others and see what secrets they've revealed!  Click here to go to the list.

I'm not sure what to rabbit means, but I suspect that's what happens when I'm faced with a lot of house cleaning as well!

Len Lambert said...

Hi Francesca! One of the rules of the challenge is to use certain words in the post. One of the words is 'rabbit.' My husband and I always use the word as in England, it is a (from Cockney) rhyming slang meaning to talk.

Crusader here. I think the lie is that you hate donuts. It's not possible. :)

Mia said...

I don't believe you about the donuts!

Trisha Leaver said...

Fellow Crusader here. How can you hate donuts? That's a physical impossibility. All that sugar and doughy goodness just melts in your mouth.

Carrie said...

It must be the donuts!

Susan Schreyer said...

Excellent, Len! I'm going to be different from everyone else and say the lie is that your husband studies birds.

Glynis said...

Donuts! I bet you are telling pork pies about the donuts. ;0

Trisha said...

I think the lie is you hate donuts :D

I don't wear g-strings either. or if THAT'S the lie, then I don't wear g-strings. full stop. hehe

projectfraeya said...

Not sure what the lie is. I don't much like donuts so I can't agree with the others.

Danette said...

Hi Crusader! I am afraid you don't sound very convincing about your donut hatred unfortunately... I think it is the lie.

Len Lambert said...

LOL! How can you say that about donuts? They are disgusting! Hehehe. :)

Angela Scott said...

Do you really like bird watching? Me thinks not :)

Margo Benson said...

Oh this is very subtle - could it be the doughnuts?...birdwatching? V good :-)

Ruthi said...

the lie? I think you LOVE DONUTS and bavarian is your favorite flavor. wink*

Ann said...

The lie is definately the Bavarian creme donuts! Who could possibly dislike Bavarian creme! :)

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

Who hates donuts?

Lola Sharp said...

The lie HAS to be the donuts! Mmmm. Donuts. (said in Homer Simpson voice...with drool)

Ben Langhinrchs said...

I guess it is possible to hate donuts, but I do not believe it of you. Good challenge post.

Donea Lee said...

Hello fellow group 2 crusader! Funny, I was going to go with the donut thing, too - couldn't possibly be true! To actually "hate" them...nah. :) But...maybe you secretly love house cleaning?

The Survival Mama said...

Interesting answers!

Fellow crusader, swinging by to say hi, and follow so I don't miss anything!

Jen Daiker said...

I don't like G-Strings, bahaha you're hilarious!! This was so fun! I learned a lot (true or not).

Faith said...

I really cannot fathom how anyone wouldn't like donuts. However, I *can* see how a person might not be fond of Bavarian. Hrmm... so this is a tough one.

Hello there from a fellow Crusader and group member!

Cally Jackson said...

Hiya fellow chick-lit crusader!

My guess is donuts! I know EXACTLY what you mean about g-strings. Ouchy! I'm hoping that wasn't your lie otherwise I've just exposed myself (pardon the pun).

Looking forward to getting to know you more during the crusade!

Talli Roland said...

I'm going to say donuts is the lie. YUM YUM YUM! :)

Lois D. Brown said...

I have no idea what the lie is, but the g string comment is funny.

Sheila said...

Let's see, I have to agree with the others about the donuts, but bird watching is not as common either. These were all very good and you know how to stump your followers.

I wish that I could have joined the crusade, I found out about it too late. I am still going around and following all of the blogs. Would you be willing to come and follow my blog? Thanks~~Sheila

Alison Stevens said...

You like donuts?

I have an award for you at my blog.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Fun entry! I don't believe for an instant that you don't like donuts. Besides, that's illegal, isn't it? LOL

Len Lambert said...

Thank you guys! The truth will be revealed soon! I am now off to visit your blogs! :)

MC Howe said...

Nobody doesn't like donuts. Liar!

Fellow crusader dropping by to say hello.

Michael Offutt said...

Thank you for visiting my blog :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Hating donuts sounds like sacrilege. I've decided not to believe that. I accept it as an untruth.

Lisa Potts said...

I refuse to believe anyone could hate donuts! Say it ain't so, Len.

Regina said...

Fellow crusader and believe that you can't possibly hate donuts.

Ann Best said...

I loved donuts--at your age! But don't now. So I go with the donuts also.

I came here from your comment on L'Aussie's blog where she highlighted me and my upcoming memoir about my gay ex-husband and others in my long journey through life. Thanks for your comment so I can come over here and meet you! All the best to you, and I'll be back...I love all the United Kingdom bloggers I've met so far!!

Charity Bradford said...

Hey crusader! Nice to meet you, and I agree, how can you hate donuts?

Nas Dean said...

Hello fellow crusader. Just dropped in to say hi to you and introduce myself as well as follow you. Thanks for the follow at my blog.

BTW, I loved reading your answers to the challenge!

menchu rose said...

my~ this is quite hard Len, but I guess I refuse to believe that you actually hate donuts;-) the word "disgusting" as you describe it is the *Understatement*, I just knew it! Just swinging by to say thanks for you know what... :-)

writesbymoonlight said...

Not liking donuts is wrong, but I think it could be true. I know people who don't like ice-cream.

I think the lie is about your husband studying birds.

Natasha, fellow crusader

Missed Periods said...

I think that the truth is you love g-strings.

Ann said...

Hi Len, I left an award over at Inkpots n' Quills for you!

L'Aussie said...

Who would like donuts - those gluggy starchy globs that hold all that slimy sugary stuff on top - just kidding! But I'm sure you're telling the truth about the g-string - yeow!

Denise:)

Jules said...

Those word selections fascinated me. I know it was part of the crusade but still... :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Hey, where did my comment go? I know I guessed doughnuts. I just went back to confirm that was my answer and it's gone. I must've clicked off not checking it went through. Argh!
