If I knew a thing about training dogs (or wanted one for that matter) this would become a new goal in my life

RE: Toot your own horn
ok tooting my own horn...

- I'm ambidexturous
- I can twist my arms backwards
- I have moved entire houses since about 10 with my dad despite having a weak back and malformed bones (yay willpower)
- I have a silver tongue (yay charisma)
- I am currently learning French in Japanese
- In both of my trips to other countries (Italy and Japan) I was generally regarded as more of a local than a tourist
- I could read adult novels in the first grade, but I found most of them boring because of the fact I didn't care for "romance" (my mom had the wrong taste in literature)
- As a child my IQ score was high (forgot the number) and when I tried going to the gifted school they didn't notice and gave me their own test to see if I could join for the 3rd grade (I aced a test which included questions up to the 7th grade learning) yeah public school was excessively boring.
- I was taught how to write right handed with my left hand and can write kanji well using it. (Japanese)
- I am able to live without too many worries with an income of $0 (again charisma but until I get a job I need it)
- I very commonly try to help people and in most cases it works out
- I have a strong memory which allows me to bluff my way through any subject due to random tidbits overheard in the past.
- I have a natural athletic ability
- I have an AA and always score highly in college. (not yet moved onto the next few years of it)
- I can understand complicated ideas pretty easily, and am even capable of explaining them to people who can't.
- My first sexual intercourse session was a threesome.
- I currently have the most interesting sex life. I'm in a D/s relationship with a pre-op M-F transsexual. It's a lesbian relationship in all the most interesting ways. I'm the dominant of said relationship though my sub pays for absolutely everything.
- In college I took choir one semester and was the star tenor >.> I also performed other parts in many songs including one where I started in soprano, switched to tenor, performed a soprano solo, switched to bass, and then finished in tenor. It was really hard because I switched at breath points.
- I can DJ any style of music well, and if I don't know the style yet I can quickly come up with some kick ass tunes. (enough to make a 2 hour set from)
- I lost 150 lbs, 14 dress sizes, and two shoe sizes!!! (US standards of measuerment)
- @cfsmagnet I too loved my intro to philosophy teacher, and not only did I get over 100% on every test she had me become a paid tutor for the class after the first test.
- And for the site, I refused religion from my baptist family at 5 years old when they first introduced it. I've called myself many things but my views on this have never changed from gaining more knowledge in the subject.

you guys all sound pretty awesome and I suck at praising myself

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

Been there, done that - twice. Could have had a third, but she was too crazy.
I am an excellent sketch artist. But I've lost all interest in it.
I have performed stand up comedy and was offered the chance to open a comedy show once, but had to work my real job.
I'm an excellent cook.
I have tested as high as 136 IQ, but generally test five to ten points lower.
In the mid-nineties I thought up an idea to sell pre-paid credit cards in vending machines. Today there's Blue-dot. I was about ten years ahead of the curve on that one. Nope, I own zero part of that.
I have written four novels in a five novel mystery series.
I have a sci-fi novel published in ebook format which you can buy thru Amazon.
I'm almost 50 and still have all my hair.
I'm almost 50 and still have all my teeth.

I have never had an at-fault car accident.
I can make foam for cappuccino.
I was asked to write the book for an off-broadway musical, but turned it down because I couldn't make a cohesive story out of the awful libreto.
I'm really really really good at tongue-twisters. (Sorry ladies; he's taken.)

I meant one stripper but the "relationship" lasted about a month or so.

RE: Toot your own horn
Hmmm this is a tough one but we all have to get out of our comfort zones every once in awhile.

- I finally met the woman of my dreams and have the relationship I always envisioned. Plus we are getting married in August.

- I became an atheist a little over 2 years ago and broke the news to my family and friends.

- I have an insane ability to remember baseball player names from about 1980 on. There are very few that I cannot give you at least a few bits of information about.

- I can cook and read a recipe.



To be honest anything before meeting Crystal was truly unremarkable. I cant really think of many above average abilities to be honest. I failed at most things until that point. But hey, ill take it.
