Let’s get to “know” each other. What are some cool talents/hobbies that you have to share with us?
I play the violin, like sudoku and cooking, am obsessed with Japan, animals,babies and elderly people, and love music, reading, and quotes. That’s just to name a few.

There are so many interesting, lovely people on here.
I love design.. anything… graphic, web.
I am inherently a DIY person, so my wedding is like a giant art project.
Also into photography, gardening, and our two amazing dogs.

I play the piano quite well, and have done gymnastics/cheer/dance in some capacity or another for 20 years of my life – taking the last two off to go back to school and let my knees rest.
I also have this really weird sense of direction and I can tell you which way North is ALL of the time.

@Sarah71710 – I have the opposite of your talent. I can get lost in my own house…

- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
Hmmm… I used to be a really good singer, but almost 20 years of no practice and smoking has ruined that (I don’t smoke anymore, though).
I’m obsessed with music.
I like to write, although I’m not very good at it.
I play Scrabble on my iPhone constantly.
And of course, there’s my fashion blog, which I am forever pimping on here! 😉

I’m an opera singer, a wine “expert” (I’m the one my friends call when they need a bottle to impress someone!), and a sporadic knitter. If I could travel constantly, I would, but my husband might disown me if I did!

- I used to play clarinet and be really good at it. I still have my old clarinet but I don’t play anymore.
- I’m a bit obsessed with all things cute and Japanese
- I’m pretty good at amateur photography
@Dragonsus, hey that’s pretty awesome about you being an opera singer! I think vistagirl’s FH is an opera singer as well. I’m a theatre stage manager and I work primarily in opera. How funny!

ohhhhh interesting facts about everyone.
Miss Moo….you love Japanese stuff too? Have you ever been?

Oooh, the violin. I’ve been meaning to learn. Along with my flute that I paid $3 for and have had for a good 10 years.
I do the sudoku, jumble, and sometimes the crossword daily. Often I do several.
I enjoy video games.
I’m semi-learning Japanese, Korean, and Russian at the same time, but don’t know much of any. I’m thinking I’m going to focus on Russian for now, since I can’t find any of my useful Japanese books.
I play the piano. One came with the house, I was super-excited.
I keep the weirdest collections: small toys, ramune marbles, odd dolls…
I like to cross-stitch and bake. My friends from pre-college would not believe the mushy-domestic type I’ve become. >.>

I love all things vampire…and this was before they became so chic. Pre-twilight.
I adore music, my dogs, I’ve written a childrens book but it’s not published and I have a few more in my head. I’m starting my own business soon. I love Polish Pottery and if I could work with animals every day for the rest of my life I would never take a day off.

I am an absolute bookworm! I have like 5 bookcases full of books. I have my B.A. in English and Social Science as well as an M.A. in English.
I love planning trips and going to different places but have never been out of the country.
I studied French for 4 years and am dying to go somewhere where I can actually use it.
I am the person my friends go to when they need to know a random fact or how to spell a word. I’m been dubbed “the walking dictionary,” “the human encyclopedia” and a few other names like that, and my husband refuses to play Scrabble with me…ever.

Ooh, fun thread!
I ride and train horses and am training my horse, a 4 year old Mustang, in dressage.
I can cook vegetarian dishes and desserts like nobody’s business.
I’m a freakishly fast reader. Not that this is a talent, per say, but it really creeps people out. (For example, I finish tests first every.single.time, and can easily read a book a night if I’m not too dead tired.)
I also have a pretty easy time understanding accents and handwriting. Whenever we’re at a foreign restaurant I have to talk to the waitstaff because R just sits there saying “I’m sorry, what?”
