All right, since enough time has passed since I made this post, I thought I'd publicly reveal the full truth about them.
(Whattya know, no one pointed out I only told four truths! I appreciate that you participated and thought it was fun, though.)
1. About the downstairs neighbor running a brothel– yep, that one's true, although I usually get a few shocked reactions when I tell the story. It wasn't exactly a nice place to be– our landlady at the time had moods that changed on a dime. She also took the liberty to explain to our public housing specialist that a past tenant felt the need to streak around the parking lot buck naked.
Besides this story, the county sheriff's department staked out the complex, even knocking on our door and asking us questions about some neighbors. I was so embarassed when my sister said our fourplex was on the local television news.
2. Yes, Donald Virgil Bluth really is my dad's cousin. I looked up the genealogy myself. His mother Emaline was my paternal grandfather's sister. My paternal grandmother used to tell us what Emaline had told her about what he was doing– I remember finding out about An American Tail before it was released, although we had no idea what it was about, exactly.
3. However, I did not investigate distant relations to Mitt Romney very well other than Wikipedia, but Wikipedia at least had a family tree that looked authentic enough. If I need to, I can do some more thorough research. If you don't like the man's politics, well, I'm very sorry but I did say distant and it's not too likely I will ever meet him. All I'm going to say is that he made his bed with the GOP (and had to appease them and shift some moderate stances) and there were Christian Coalition members that didn't like him because, well, with them, they think us Mormons don't believe in the same Jesus they do. What the hell ever.
4. Two of you correctly guessed that this was the lie. I did take guitar studies, but I've never played an electric bass (yet) in a band. However, those might be my influences if I did make one.
5. This was at Ricks College, which is now BYU-Idaho. All I'm going to say about that one.
