Real Or Not Real (or, what happens when I stay up way past my bedtime)?

I stayed up way past my bedtime last night and then paid for it when Nissa had a fitful night of sleep herself, so this post is going to be especially convoluted.  Just warning you.

Because I can't form one coherent thought this morning (But when are my thoughts ever coherent, you ask? Well just zip it, McQuippys. I'm too tired to argue a losing case this morning.) I thought I would allow you a glimpse into my twisted mind. It's going to be a freaky ride, so you might want to pack your blindfold.

Here's how we're going to do it.  I am going to list a bunch of very personal stuff about myself, and some things will be true and some false.  You get to guess which of the statements do not belong, and at the same time you can get to know me a little better. Or not. We'll see how this pans out.  Ready?  No? Good. Let's go!

True Or False (or Real or Not Real for all you Hunger Games Fans.  I stayed up late finishing Mockingjay. It was quite awesome):

1) I once got mistaken for Inara's nanny.

2) I graduated with an Honors Degree in Human Biology.

3) I graduated with an Honors Degree in Political Science.

4) I attended five different elementary schools.

5) I am not a Harry Potter Geek and I never attended a midnight book release or movie opening.

6) My wedding lasted three days. There were between 3 and 4 HUNDRED people in attendance for the wedding and reception.

7) I was on anti-depressants for a little while.  I decided to stop taking them, without consulting a professional.  I probably shouldn't have done that.

8) Nissa Aveline is named after both mine and Yousuf's grandmothers.

9) Inara is named after a television science fiction character.

10) People say that Inara looks like me. In fact they often get us confused for one another. It's possible that they think we look like this:

 11) I apprenticed with an interior designer for one year.

12) I took piano lessons and guitar lessons in my younger days, but I hardly retained any useful knowledge about either instrument.  I can sing, though. And I'm not that terrible at it either.

13) I have never intentionally ingested alcohol.

14) English is not my first language.

15) Contrary to popular belief, my husband Yousuf is not Middle Eastern. He is a little bit Irish, a little bit English, and a whole lotta hunka hunka burnin' Canuck.

Multiple Choice:
Of the following three names, only one has been my husband's since birth. Which one is it?
a) Yousuf
b) El Cheapitan
c) George

And one Bonus Question:
True or False: I have had surgical enhancements done to both myself and my eldest child.  Before them, we looked like this:

My brain is such a weird place sometimes.  I need more sleep.

Now it's your turn...can you guess which of those crazy statements are true? Or false? Or neither? Have any questions or comments about anything I wrote? Comment here, via email, Twitter, or on my Facebook page - I'm easy like that. And maybe, just maybe, I'll share the answers with you.  But you have to at least try to guess first.  Don't hate the game, peeps. Show me the love!
