Talkin' Tuesday!

Here are 9 Fierce Facts about Som and one line is completely fictional.  Get involved by guessing which one of the 10 items listed below is the imposter. Put your comments below and Som may be around on Twitter so you can poke at her for some hints!  The fictional statement about Som will be posted next Tuesday when I feature the next CN Teammie.

1.  I love making and wearing jewelry, but my wedding ring and ear studs are pretty much what I wear daily. 
2.  I am a big supporter of education, science and technology.
3.  I was denied my Sales Tax license in India because I refused to bribe the corrupt Municipal Officers.
4.  I got my Export license in India, because those Officers did not ask for a bribe.  So, now I can sell everywhere else but the country I stay in. Go figure!
5.  My alter ego is an Iron Chef! Allez Cuisine!
6.  Once I interrogated a maid so intensely, that although no one believed me, she actually returned the pair of heels and the cash she did steal.
7.  I was asked to join politics while at college but rejected that in spite of a lot of money and power being offered.
8.  I had an arranged marriage and met the guy just 2 days before the wedding. 
9.  There is an antique dagger from Nepal in my father's family made of solid silver encrusted with jewels, which is never unsheathed.  If anyone does take it out, he is supposed to prick his finger and put a bit of blood on the blade, or legend has it that the blood thirsty blade will get its own blood.  
10.  For my honeymoon, my husband took me on a grand tour of Europe.

*******Last week's false fact about Vanessa from bailybellecreations was this one: When I lived in FL I went sky diving for the first time and loved it!


  1. I love this game. I missed last week with Vanessa but just caught up. I have some very interesting and exciting teammies.

    For Som, I think that #1 is false. I think that she wears beautiful jewelry daily (from bracelets to necklaces).

  2. Hmmmmm...So many exotic (to me) possible answers!

    I'm gonna guess that # 1 is false, but only because you are wearing a necklace in your photo here :)

    Stay away from that dagger, ahh!

  3. What a beautiful photograph!

    So many interesting "facts", I have no idea what could be false.

    I'm going to guess that #9 is false.

  4. Ok this one is REALLY hard! I am going to guess that #6 is false.

    I really love seeing the face behind the shop! Som, you have a lovely smile :)

  5. What a fascinating life so far, Som!
    hmm...I'm torn between 3 and 8 being false.

  6. oh my goodness, Som, so fun and mysterious! What a rich story you have given us here :-D. I'm going to guess that #8 is false.

  7. I'm guessing #1. You have a beautiful necklace on in your photo! I love getting to know everyone this way!!!!

  8. Let me just say that I'm glad I guessed Vanessa's right...this is a tough one....

    Oh my Som...what an interesting life you have...
    I really have NO clue but will guess #8 is false.
    Can't wait to see the answer!!

  9. Holy hotdogs we have some serious super sleuths on this team! I can tell they are studying your photo and reading every syllable. Sooo fun to see everyone's thoughts! Squeeeeeal!

    I'd like to guess 1, but I think 10...

    What a lovely picture and life!

  11. It' fun to get to know our teamies!!

    I'll go with #5 !!

  12. i'm guessing that you really hate to cook...so #5.

  13. I'm going to guess that #8 is false. I know that arranged marriages are still common in India, but Som went to school here in the States. I'm gonna guess she met the lucky guy then...

  14. This is a tough one, but I'm gonna go with #8.

  15. Oh my goodness!! I am so tickled to have so many people respond and make guesses. I am grinning at some of the responses, but I will hold my mouth shut for a little bit. :) Keep on guessing guys and thanks so much for the compliments.

  16. Hello Som,
    What a lovely photo! So nice to see the face behind your wonderful shops! I am going to guess #9 is false.

  17. i'm going to guess #7. i don't know why... maybe just because nobody else has guessed it yet. you have so many interesting facts :) this is fun!
