Let’s see….

I’m fluent in sarcasim (wait, is that a good thing?)

I can make the noise of a straw going up and down through the plastic cup lids (it kind of sounds like Pee-Wee Herman’s laugh

I can play the clarinet

…and I can draw cartoons.

But I feel, like you do Mrs. Bee, that I don’t have one ‘uber’ talent to oooohhh and ahhhh my friends.

I’m a crafter and my fiance and I run a small business for our stained glass and wood mirrors – but I have no performing talents.  We have super talented friends so we’re having a talent showcase at the Welcome Picnic the night before our wedding – http://www.fussellwhiteside.com/wedding/blog/2009/02/sing-sing-a-song/

I always wanted to be able to sing well enough to front a local cover band.  And to be able to paint.

Hmm my main talents are eating, avoiding laundry, loading the dishwasher to it’s maximum occupancy, being out of the house when a delivery comes, and finding lost things.

Cooking, for sure.  Thirteen years as a vegetarian and three as a vegan made it necessary. 

I sing and dance like Elaine from Sienfeld.  Always wished I could do both.

The parentals had me in 8 years of clarinet lessons….I think it helped me learn focus/dedication/patience/creativity. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit, and even earned some scholarship money. Can’t beat that.

I also have become an avid crafter lately, with all of these DIY wedding projects. But haven’t we all. =)

I love writing and cooking, and in high school, sang in the choir and played piano and cello.

Mrs. Bee, I’d wager to say you do have a talent… as an entrepreneur, businesswoman, and community developer.  Those are some mighty amazing skills.

My talent used to be snowboarding, but I haven’t done it lately.  I used to compete at it 😉  It’s kind of sad to be somewhat talentless right now…   but I did knit a really pretty scarf over the holidays.  Maybe that will be my future talent?

Thanks to some sort of hyperactive overachiever gene, I did a lot (up until I got a job): played violin for the Arapaho Philharmonic, sang at Carnegie Hall, played soccer on the Olympic Development Team, Varsity placekicker in high school, hockey goalie in college, and now…Professional Slacker.  I always thought that I’d sing a song at my wedding but now I’d consider it tacky (morning wedding).

I’m not sure if you would call it a talent but I can read and write backwards. It’s great for window displays. I use to write my notes in college backwards on accident on really long days. My roomie would have to read them in a mirror to copy. Drove her nuts!

MightySapphire-

I played the violin through grade school.  As an adult, I hate the fact that I ever gave it up :(.  Do you still play?

I took 18 years of dance, was a competitive baton twirler from age five to about 20, and was featured twirler in college…I also took 20 years of singing lessons and won several miss america preliminaries…singing!

Not that many people know this because I don’t do it anymore, but I am a classically trained singer.  I went to a performing arts highschool which led to a music performance major in voice which led to performing at Disney…and then I got tired of it.
