We know you're all talented writers, but what OTHER talent(s) do you have? Come on...can you play an instrument? Sing? Draw?

I'm a midi composer....very slow and not very good, but I manage to get around the keyboard a bit. I have some examples here if you want to take a listen: http://www.tstonramp.com/~packrat/midis.html

Oh, and I also won a karaoke contest once. (I was a little bit under the influence at the time or I wouldn't have attempted it.)

I can whine really well and I can SULK like anything - exceptionally.

I can argue too...

I can sing every now and then...and act...and dance..oh no, I can't. Those three things just go well together. Considering I fall over regularly dancing and I just don't get there...

I can sit at my computer for extended periods of time and NOT MOVE. It's remarkable and takes not much effort at all...

Hey I like this idea. I get to brag and no one minds!
Well, I'm pretty good at drawing.
I can sing fairly well too. Well I haven't been thrown out of anywhere for singing yet!

I wish you every happiness and may you always have the best of the good things in life. a brand

I can...... DANCE!!

Ok, maybe not... but seriously, I'm a decent singer and actress. I can also put up one mean debate!

Hi there. . .

Well, I'm great at cooking, singing, I play the clarinet still on ocassion, as well as piano, recorder, and the newest instrument that I've picked up, my shahkuhachi (it's a Japanese flute that's hard to learn and will probably take me the rest of my life to master, but it sounds wonderful.)

I've also written some music, and have recently discovered that I have a talent for voice-over work when I was asked to be an Auctioneer for the local Public TV stations Auction fund raiser (which was on TV!).

hmm. can't play any intruments, though I'd love to play the guitar, violin and piano.
can't draw, though I wish I could, I have so many images that just beg to be put on paper, but I can't draw a straight line with a ruler, really!
Oh, wait, this is what CAN I do? Sorry.
I can teach myself just about anything, like needlepoint, cross-stitching, sewing, and my career.. being a pharmacy technician without ever stepping foot in a school.
gee, thanks for this one. Made me feel good about myself. I needed that  

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..

I'm quite good pulling weeds out of my garden, have to do it all year round, I'm good at staying up late to visit Passions and in doing that letting my telephonebill rise up fairly high.
I'm quite good at collecting all kinds of old things for wich I hardly have a place in the house.
But beside that all, I make booklets for various associations, I fish (at sea too), breed my rare breed of sheep (Drenten Heathsheep), I paint (the house), building brick walls, I drive my husband crazy with my energy, but I'm a good friend to a lot of people too, I think. I'm just like my Icon.

Titia

P.S. Forgot, have a fulltime job at the Tax office  (no it's not boring) working for about 30 odd   men.

I play guitar, am a pretty good singer, a good public speaker, and am getting better and better by the day at song writing.

Photography, my main passion in life!

I've been told I ride my dirt bike with flair, for a girl!  

I can play the Sax, well, used to when I had one.

Oh, and I can bake a mean pumpkin bread!

Does a talent for almost instantaneously determining the best way to ANNOY someone count ...?  

I'm remarkably untalented, actually, but Michael and the cat love me, so I guess I'm doing something right ... LOL

I'm a fast reader, does that count?
Also a good, loyal friend and a loyal to a fault lover.
I have no artistic talent other than my writing, which can be debated as to it's artistic value.
