    My talent is that I can cross my eyes, and I can cross one eye at a time.  Not much of a talent but I used to get a good laugh out of it at parties… I would walk up to a cute guy with one eye crossed and introduce myself and see how long I could hold a conversation before I busted out with laughter.

    @Mimoza:  If I hold it too long I do get a headache.

    I can sing ok, but not great.  Can’t play any instruments either.  I can’t draw/paint/sculpt- definitely not artistic.  I can really only contort my eyes just enough to look like I may have a mental deficit.  Fabulous :/

    • I’ve juggled since I was 13 – clubs, rings, and up to 4 balls (I’m not being dirrrrty).  My living room has a unicycle on display that I’ve had since I was 17, but I haven’t figured out how to ride it more than 20ft.
    • I’ve played piano since I was 7.  Flute from ages 12-20.
    • I can fold my tongue in a way that it displays 3 folds or “petals”

    I have lots of other hobbies, though, but I wouldn’t consider those “talents.”

    I can sing.

    I actually used to travel and get paid and all that jazz. I was well on my way to making something of it. Until all of a sudden, due to a family loss, the joy of doing it was just sucked out of it. I developed kind of a fear actually to going on stage because of the emotions it brings up and the connection to the loss I suffered. So I gave it up and never looked back. I still keep in touch with my old team and they still ask if im ready to give it a go again. I have lots of connections in the music industry, some really big names actually, and I let down a lot of people when i gave it up. it just wasn’t for me I guess.

    I can fit my fist into my mouth lol is that a talent?

    I have small hands though so it’s not really all that amazing.

    @Mimoza:  I certainly hope I do 😛 Writing is one, both in English and Russian. I am slightly better in Russian. I need to move back there and find a job. I am a great cook and baker, I can do make-up really well (I just choose not to), and I have a knack for getting at the root of a problem and creating action plans to solve them. I have some other talents but they are X rated so only MrPanda99 gets to know! 😀

    i sing. really well. if i were more comfortable on stage, i’d have it made.

    i also seem to be a jack of many artistic trades, and master of none. i can very slowly play piano (reallly slow, i stop to count where the notes are on the sheet music and match it to the keys). i can play chords on guitar, but i can’t pick worth a damn. i can crochet two types of stitches and nothing more. i can’t knit a scarve and nothing more. i can draw what i’m looking at, but i can’t draw from my imagination. i can write fanfic, but i can’t create my own characters.

    I play the cello. Used to play in the Seattle youth symphony years ago. I also am ok at guitar and banjo. I like to dabble lots of stuff, but I’m not very good at any of them (i.e. tile work, wood work, croqueting, sewing, working on cars, writing music…) I think my attention span is too short. Or I get to a point where I don’t get any better and give up.

    I can regurgitate things I swallow.  I don’t puke or anything, I can just hold things in the back of my throat.  I bet I could do a goldfish, but I wouldn’t want to.  Not the most useful “talent”.

    I’m really quite a good drummer. I’m also capable of writing professionally and am good at graphic design.

    I’m a lot less competent at certain crafty things though. Knitting is slow and wobbly, I can’t crochet around corners and I couldn’t begin to ice a cake that wouldn’t be worthy of Cake Wrecks.
