    I can wiggle my ears… either both at the same time or each individually. I’m a hit with the 4-year-olds… they would definitely say that’s my best talent. My friend’s little boy practices in the mirror he wants to do it so badly… it’s hilarious.

    Right, um, I’d like to say something clever – but I think it’s being a sensitive backing vocalist. Lots of upfront people can have trouble being in the background, whereas it’s my natural territory πŸ™‚

    My name is Mandy.
    And I write songs.
    Lots of them.

    oh – and i am kinda ‘special’ with numbers and patterns.

    Yours?? ( i knew you’d use the “i’m too busy with the conference” excuse – Pshh!)

    I can serve a volleyball with pinpoint accuracy (or thereabouts)
    and also make a pretty mean chile con queso

    I used to be pretty impressive on the piano. And I can kind of sing. Some people have said that I’m a good writer. But I think my best – and nerdiest – talent is proofreading. I love me a red pen!

    My bestest, huh? I don’t know how to classify that. What makes it my best? Ummm …

    I think I’d have to say debate. In that it is something which comes very naturally to me, and something which I generally tend to do good at. My other thought is dance – although I’ve done very little with the talent, so it is completely undeveloped. 😦 Although Photoqueen (seriously, I should probably get to know her, we have to much in common) made me think of something else. I am a good editor too. I’m my sister’s unofficial editor. Critiquing comes pretty naturally too. (That one’s not always appreciated though. :/ )

    You’re right, Annie – not everyone appreciates the beauty of editing! πŸ™‚

    k, i obviously fell off the face of the planet, but i’m back now, and i have some catchin’ up to dooooooo. so here goes! (way cute idea by the way)

    Part 1- Freshman year (high school). Diving team. Locker room. Traditionally, because the gals have the biggest locker room ever, after everyone’s dressed and everything, all the boys come in and hang out till it’s time to leave. Well, everyone seemed to forget that i had to stay after to do some extra dives. I walk out from the shower area in my towel to a large group of people–girls AND guys. One of them decides to taunt me and to pretend to rip at my towel. I very frantically start scrambling away, of course. I take off running, while she is still holding on to my towel. Suddenly I realize I no longer have a towel to hide behind….. I run into the bathroom stall until everyone leaves. Ha! This is a cruel world!

    Part 2- I was in kindergarten! His name was Joshua Bishop. It was behind the bookshelves during story time. He was a cutie. πŸ˜‰

    Part 3- I have a very abnormal fear of slugs and worms. It freaks me out that they have no face, brain, etc…. and yet they still slime around and such. Ugh, it makes me sick just typing about it! I have yet to overcome this!

    Part 4- I can sing really, really high. And all operatic like, too! When people hear that I study opera, they often go “Oh…so do you actually like opera?” haha…yes. “Do you sing ‘normal’ too?” yesssssssss.

    I learn music quickly.

    I’m joining Photoqueen and Annie on the editing. I think it’s the thing that comes most naturally.

    Some people say that I write well, but I think that’s more academically than anything else.

  12. February 5, 2009 11:56 am

    I am a great smiler and a strong bear hugger. I’m so gifted!

  13. February 5, 2009 11:59 am

    Tennis…how I made my living for a few years…no more but can still hit the ball ok

    @photoqueen and annie: I used to work at a magazine and loved getting to proof. Our main editor for our international version of the trade pub was actually not a great writer… I loved getting to take his articles apart and put them back together like a puzzle or a piece of art. Editing really can be artistic… it’s as much about the feel of the piece as the rules.

    I’m so horribly out of practice I don’t think I’d be very good at it anymore, but it was fun once upon a time.

    I can organized and problem-solve like no one’s business. It isn’t glamourous, but it keeps things running.

  16. February 5, 2009 1:41 pm

    well, I missed the other posts, but I will say here that a fear I’ve overcome would be when I was younger and didn’t know God personally, I was really afraid of what would happen to me when I died…would I cease to exist, or just join a “universal consiousness” like the new age people were telling me.

    That was the first thing I overcame after becoming a Christian. God reassured me that my eternity would be where I continued to exist~as the person He truly intended me to be.

    And my best talent? Resourcefulness.

    I can sing and play guitar, but I would say my best talent would be that I can turn my belly button inside-out. Seeing=believing.

    Hmmmm, I’m not very talented but I’ll have to go with guitar. I would love to try drums though.

  19. February 5, 2009 3:33 pm

    Best talent? hmm… writing (editing for me, too – a semicolon is my best friend!) and SINGING (I love it!)

  20. February 5, 2009 5:23 pm

    Tickling the ivories and singing….not sure if that last one would actually qualify for my talent, but I do LOVE to do it. But when I’m having a day that I just seriously suck at everything I do, I just go play my keyboard for a while. It reminds me that even with all the things I screw up, at least I’m always good at one thing. This thought makes me feel better. πŸ˜‰

  21. February 5, 2009 7:03 pm

    I can make people cry just by talking.

  22. February 5, 2009 8:02 pm

    I can do that ^^^^^ just by singing!!! πŸ˜‰

    yeah – i’m just that ‘good’!


  23. February 6, 2009 12:43 am

    I have a Bruce Buffer sounding radio voice :-).

  24. February 6, 2009 5:44 am

    πŸ˜† Love!!!!

  25. February 6, 2009 10:42 pm

    i have no idea. but i went out with 4 amazing women tonight and a couple of them, who follow me on twitter and blog together, kept saying i was funny. now, i have self proclaimed myself as a comedian…mostly cause that in itself makes me laugh. but i guess theres some truth in it?
