Brag time!

Ok guys, I'm going to pull a popfiend here or something. ;-) I was thinking about this on the way home.

Which of your abilities are you the most proud of? It doesn't have to be artistic. It doesn't even have to be anything profound. But what is something you can do that you think is pretty damned awesome.

Brag away my friends! Pass the link on if you want to and get other people to come and brag. I just want to read people feeling good about themselves!

This post is awesome.
Um.

I'm really good at identifying singers and bands. It's a weird talent I know- but almost everyone I know looks to me for confirmation when a song is on that people don't recognize. Typically I can even pick out new music just by the voice of the singer. It has to be someone I've heard before mind you.

Weird, non salable talent. But it's kind of interesting?

I haven't posted my talent but it's really similar to that...only...not with pop songs! I should go respond to my own post. LOL

The idea for this post came to me yesterday afternoon as I was on my way home from the mechanic's. I have an uncanny ability for identifying compositions by composer and often by time period as well.

The work that was on I thought immediately "it sounds a little sturm und drang" (storm and stress, a style hat was common in the 1760s and 1770s) and I figured it was early Haydn.

It turned out to, indeed, be early Haydn, and while it might have been too early for Sturm und Drang, I think it showed some evidence that that style was emerging.

This happens to me ALL the freaking time. To the point at which I find it a blast to try to figure out who it might be.

Hm. I have the mechanic nature with software: people call me with a problem, but when I ask them to walk through the steps they were taking, the problem vanishes.

I can also make things larger on the inside than the outside.

Over at popfiend's suggestion.

I like my ability to accept people best of all.

In second place is my fantastic talent for finding the best free internet porn.

Oh, wait, you said PROUD OF. Never mind number two. :)

I'm surprisingly good at games like table tennis, badminton, and dodge ball.

You know, the games you never see on TV. :)

I was really awesome at dodgeball when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure I'd suck at it now that I'm old and fat! lol

Here via popfiend; I don't have many skills, but I used to be a fairly decent writer--strictly fanfics and amateur stuff, nothing published. All my Lit profs in college told me I should write pro, but RL kinda put the damper on that. I am also pretty good with kids, especially prek age, ha; maybe that's why I teach that age group instead of older kids, I'm emotionally on their level, ha!! And I can listen to my autistic daughter shriek with a tantrum for two hours or repeat the same question to me at least 100x in one day (LITERALLY, 100x, I'm not kidding) without slitting my wrists or going completely insane, so is that a skill/talent?! Ha.

RL kind of sucks that way, eh? I love writing fanfic. It's great fun.

I think your patience with children and especially your autistic daughter is seriously awesome. I wish I could develop that sort of patience. I teach college level kids because I can't deal with the little ones in groups.

I'm a total spaz when things go into crisis mode. I used to think I could handle it but then I have total melt-downs at the worst moments.
