Cats, Skating & Emmys - Did you spot the lie?

I'm a terrible liar.  But last week for Meme Monday, I gave it a shot.  I told you two truths and one lie.  As promised, I will reveal the answer today.  But first, let's look at what you all thought, on both my knitting blog and diabetes blog.

Only two people thought that I didn't go to the Celebration of a Life tribute to Sergei Grinkov.  Three people said I didn't attend the last Broadway performance of Cats.  And a whopping ten of you said I wasn't in the audience when Susan Lucci won the Daytime Emmy.

Well, maybe I'm not such a bad liar after all.  I was absolutely in the audience at Madison Square Garden the night Susan Lucci won her Emmy.  A co-worker had tickets and invited a group of us along.  It was a lot of fun to get all dressed up in gowns and go to the awards, especially since I'd been watching All My Children and General Hospital since high school.  And when Susan Lucci won, the place went nuts!

I was also at the Hartford Civic Center the night that the biggest stars in skating gathered to pay tribute to Sergei.  My mom and I are huge figure skating fans and were heart-broken when Sergei died.  The tribute was one of the saddest shows I have ever witnessed and I think we cried the whole time.

But alas, I have never, ever seen the play Cats, much less the final performance!

I hope you had as much fun with this meme as I did!  And now, do you have two truths and a lie you'd like to post?  I'd love to guess your lie!


  1. Whoa, you stumped me Karen!
    Good job!
    Wait, should I be congratulating you on lying??

  2. I didn't make an official guess, but you definitely would have gotten me. I never would have guessed you saw Susan Lucci won her Emmy.

  3. Cool idea Karen. The blog is really awesome, still loving it!

    Ok, here goes:

    1. Was conscious with a blood sugar of 21.
    2. Was special guest of the NFL and sang at Super Bowl 32.
    3. Secretly love the show, "Golden Girls"
