Everything's five by five

Five facts and five fictions about Josh (in random order):

1. I have been kicked out of Caesar's Palace.
2. I have shoplifted one of my own novels.
3. In college, I first declared as a history major.
4. I was in the gifted program in elementary school.
5. I am pyrophobic.
6. I have seen a dead body (outside of a funeral).
7. I can read music.
8. I first published under a pseudonym.
9. I was a Boy Scout.
10. I secretly enjoyed Twilight.

Okay Josh, here goes nuttin':
I'm choosing 2, 4, 5, 6, 10.

Sue Ann Jaffarian said...

Ooops those above numbers represent the trues.

Jeannie Holmes said...

I'm guessing 1, 2, 4, 7, and 10 are true. :)

Joshua Corin said...

Maybe...maybe...

Fictions: 2,3,4,6,8

Michael Wiley said...

I think you're fooling with us, Josh. My guess is that they're all true, except the one on Caesar's Palace -- It was really The Bellagio.

Kelli Stanley said...

You're a tough cookie, Corin. :)

OK, I think these are the true statements:

3,4,7,8,10

Joshua Corin said...

Sorry to disappoint, Michael, but I play fair =)

Joshua Corin said...

You got one right, Amber...

Joshua Corin said...

Two correct, Kelli...

Reece said...

I'm guessing that these are the true ones: 3, 4, 5, 6, 10. As for 10, the real question is Team Edward or Team Jacob?

Meredith Cole said...

This is so fun! Are y'all going to give us a cheat sheet at the end of the week? Or will we all have to live with the image of Josh shoplifting his own novel for the rest of our days--?

Rebecca Cantrell said...

I'm picking 1, 3, 4, 5, 8 and NOT 10. Please let me be right on that last one!

This is going to be a fun week!

But will you tell us in the end?

Joshua Corin said...

You're 2/5, Reece =)

Joshua Corin said...

1/5, Sue Ann...

Joshua Corin said...

2/5, Jeannie...

Joshua Corin said...

3/5, Becky. Not bad =)

Kelli Stanley said...

OK, gang, Josh is making us solve this as a logic problem ... let's see if we can do it! :)

Gabi said...

This is a great week.

I think 1 (probably with Shane), 2 (from Half Price Books which wouldn't give you a royalty anyway), 3 (none of us knew what we were doing at 18), 4 (it was that or juvenile detention) and 6 (don't ask, don't tell).

As for the false --
5. pyrophobic no, pyromaniac yes
7. read?
8. if you didn't put your name on three years of work, people will wonder what the heck you'd been doing and the guesses wouldn't be pretty
9. no darn way
10. nothing secret about it

Kelli Stanley said...

All right, Corin, here goes ... my logic puzzle worked out thus:

1,3,5,7 and 9 are true!

So now explain how you got kicked out of Caesar's Palace, you scamp, you! ;)

Gabi said...

Oh and I think you've probably been thrown out of both Caesar's and the Bellagio.

Graham Brown said...

I know I'm late to the party hee but I say 1,2,5,4,5 are true. Five by five - first five true last five false.

Sue Ann Jaffarian said...

Okay, by process of elimination I think my one right is 4. It's too early in the morning to do any other problem solving. Though I REALLY wanted you to have shop lifted your own book.
