Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Completely Useless Talents I Possess

1. I can raise one eyebrow.

2. If you give me any calendar date within a two year span (from present time), in less than 20 seconds I can tell you what day of the week that date fell on.

3. I can name all eight kids from the TV show Eight is Enough IN ORDER.

4. I can randomly name most cast members from any show I regularly watched in the 70s or 80s.

5. I can solve most word jumbles in less than ten seconds.

6. I can type by touch without looking at my fingers unless I think about it and then I cant do it.

7. I can alphabetize all the letters in a sentence in one minute or less. (I really don’t even want to explain how I found out I had many of these talents.)

8. Although my cooking is suspect at best and even if it tastes ok, it seldom looks appetizing, for some reason I can make a beautiful looking pie.

9. I can read unreasonably fast, although I never learned to speed read per se.

10. I can rattle off the lyrics to almost every popular song from 1984. (My mother put me on diet pills that year. I never slept and alienated all my friends through my constantly edgy and snappy amphetamine state)

11. I can spot an onion, a pepper, a mushroom and/or a chunky tomato in any food item no matter how well disguised it is.

12.I can peel an M & M.

13. I can eat a bowl of cereal while driving. (I haven’t done it in years and never would with kids in the car, but I can do it)

You are seriously amazing.

Note to those not fortunate enough to have spent RL time with crse: The date thing and the alphabetizing thing are even more impressive in real life than they seem here. :)

Wow, that's cool! And I can do 1, 4, 9, and a bit of 10 (I love 80's music!). I used to be able to do 3 (I LOVED that show!).

And the next time I'm trying to figure out dates/days of the week, I'm just gonna e-mail you!

You can peel an M&M? That is one of the coolest things I've ever heard of! Jenny, a TT newbie :)
