Liar’s Contest Results

It isn’t whether you win or lose. It is how you play the game. Winning isn’t what makes people respect you. It may earn you some envy, or even some malice, but winning alone won’t make people respect you. Genuine respect comes from how you handle yourself during the game.

I am proud of my players. Even during the heat of the battle they held on to thier humor. As Betty (voting tirelessly for Lori) and Donna battled for first place, they exchanged comments on each other’s blogs and got to know each other a bit.

Last night just before the deadline Donna contacted me and conceeded. While she was busy with her job, her schooling, her kids, their schooling, her husband, his job and their home, Dr. John and Lori took an incredible lead. Donna said she was just too tired to try and catch up.

As the other players — long since left in the dust — stopped racing for themselves, they did so with grace and humor. And please remember, as long as you visited each other’s blogs and made some new friends, you’re all winners!

Here are the final states on The Liar’s Contest: (I was not going to share this until tomorrow, but Dr. John is like a kid at Christmas. Although I’m sure he’s waiting to see Lori’s final score, not his own.)

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Sometimes in a hurry to get old
    sometimes trying to catch gold
    before the hot trail goes cold

    Sometimes in a hurry for the City
    Sometimes lusting for the night life and the bright City lights

    And then wanting to slow time
    and wishing for peace sublime
    Then wanting to leave the bustle
    and hear the country leaves rustle

  2. 1st place: Celebrity Status as, “The Greatest Living Liar”
    2nd place: Contender Status as, “Almost The Greatest Living Liar’
    3rd place: Wannabe Status as: ‘Liar in Training’

    Donna, you’re a “Wanna Be”

    Q — Thank you for your words. My sister and I talked today about my need to leave the city. Maybe next summer I’ll be relocating. For now, I have a class to teach.

  3. I’m trying to decide whether I should demand a recount.I’ve always been told I am quite a liar. I don’t understand what happened. Maybe I was just having an off day. Oh, well.

  4. Hi Quilly.
    I didn’t mean you or today.

    I meant life in general is a harmony between the rush to get more things done, and time to relax and have a peacefulday!.

    And then one has got a class to teach. And then one has got tome to put up ones feet, and then one has got another class to teach

    It is the Rythm of the Dance
    It is the Rythm of the Planets
    It is the Rythm of the Stars
    it is the Rythm of Life.
