Organizer of volunteer work for soccer.....chairperson of rodeos.....best bowling score of 246....best golf game of 91.....league member of both.......mother of 3 fine sons that I never had ANY problems with...of course I was the Mom who stayed up until they got home on a Saturday night .......just to talk with them to make sure there was no drinkin' going on...and they always knew I would!!! They would always try to bypass me and run up the stairs to their rooms...but I would ALWAYS head them off at the pass. lol....

I'll keep thinking about this.......surely I have done more.....:-)

Hey...just thought of something....no one and I mean NO ONE can beat me at tying a square knot....I have ribbons to prove it!

Quoting Gently:  "Oh no no, Pat, you have to play the game.  No more from me until you step up and share some brag."

Okay, here goes...

Overcame a disfunctional family.

Overcame crippling shyness.

I've learned a great deal from my many major mistakes in life.

More or less taught myself how to write fiction.

I can make all my own clothes--though I don't any longer as I hate to sew.

I can do all those traditional female things like knitting, crocheting, darning socks, etc.

I can play most melodies I like by ear on a soprano or alto recorder.

I can still dirty dance pretty well.

I can sing pretty well on days when my sinuses aren't too stuffed up.

I can cut my own hair--and make it look good.

I can write backwards with my left hand while writing forward with my right hand--and vice versa.

Yup, Gently, I can laugh about just about anything, including myself.

I can usually make other people laugh about their troubles and make them feel good about themselves when they're beating themselves up.

I'm a champion procrastinator.

I'm also a genius at taking vacations up the River of Denial.

I'm a super loyal friend.

I'm a pretty good mimic and actor.

I'm a creative cook.

I have my own tools and know how to use them.  [no heavy-duty power tools, though.]

I speak only one language, but I speak it really, really well.

I own a rifle, a shotgun, a flintlock, and a hangun, I know how to use them and take care of them, and I'm a very good shot.

On a dare, I once wrote a 1000 word run-on sentence essay that actually made sense and was hysterically funny.

I can, on paper, make huge, humorous mountains out of insignificant molehills.

I'm an excellent driver and have never, in 49 years of driving, had an accident--except for the one time when my brakes failed in a blizzard while I was doing 5 miles an hour on a flat straightaway and bumped into the car ahead of me at a traffic light.  The driver of that car barely felt a thing while the whole front end of my car slowly accordioned up to the windshield.  Then the windshield shattered and fell in on me.  No "damage" to me, but you haven't truly lived until you've sat in the front seat of a totalled Saab covered in tiny fragments of glass while heavy snow is falling on you and wind is whipping you in the face while dozens of on-lookers stare at you wondering what planet you just got here from.

You'll have to excuse me now.  I have to go knock wood in case the auto accident gods are listening....

LOLOLOLO

Pat

Quoting GentlyWoman

Oh no no, Pat, you have to play the game.  No more from me until you step up and share some brag. I know it looks like it, but I don't want an "all about me" blog. And if I have to, I'll start bragging on some of our fellow bloggers.  Hmmm, starting with you, and your amazing ability to LOL at almost anything.


Oy vay!!!!!!!!  Add to your list emotional/psychological gennerosity to the MAX. 

 

 

I gotta do some heavy duty thinking to come up with anything that won't look like cow crap next to your list....

 

 

I know for sure you haven't meant to intimidate any of us---that's surely not your style.

 

 

Oh, and by the way....While I'm, intimated by your list as far as the public forum goes--I'm not one whit intimidated as far as latching onto you with a 40 foot wide piece of velcro is concerned for freindship....  Someone, somewhere, once said, if you want to be successful in life, connect with those more successful than yourself.

 

 

I've latched on to you for sure, Sweetie.  Oh, and I should add.  Want to add.  How wonderfully smart of you to post this in a totally non-threatening, non-intimidating style.  You really are a genius---well worthy of that Mensa standing. 

 

 

Love ya' kiddo.  If I can figure out how to list my meager accomplishments in a way that will make them look like SOMETHING, I will post them.  If I can't---I won't.   Knowing me.....I'll probably come up with something.  I do so love an impossible challenge.......

 

 

Pat

Gently, my dear.  I love the last item on your list.  "I am brave and can prove it."

I'm absolutely dying to know what you would do to prove it!!!!   Other than what you've already done at The Limp [LOL].

Pat

P.S.:  You've got to add "Great Editor" to your list.

You are going to need one very big bumper! I can correctly pronounce haleakala. I can count to ten in four languages. I once had full access and met many rock musicians back stage. I worked myself crazy putting my son through private school and now he wants to be a psychologist. I hiked up stone mountain in the dark. I burned furniture before leaving the sebring road race. I have tried drugs. I think. I was in an airplane at thirty thousand feet and one engine stopped working. I used my computer to discover my wife was cheating on me. I have been told I have a good sense of humor

Allow me :)

  • I have travelled to over 13 countries, mostly by myself…and I can read a map.
  •  A couple years ago, I hiked down Mt. Haleakala, Maui from the summit to the base, 27 miles, in one day.
  • I homeschooled my 17 year old son for 4 years until this month.
  • I spend hundreds of dollars and hours each year in support of my 13 year old son’s incredible art talent.
  • I have held many Board positions, including, currently, President of a School Board and Treasurer for a High Tech company.
  • I can play piano and sing like crazy, classical, ragtime, blues and rock and more.
  • I can say the alphabet backwards.
  • There’s this trick I do, moving my eyes independently, that always makes babies laugh.
  • Once, I let a young boy live with me for 6 months because he had nowhere else to go.
  • I also had my friend and her daughter live with me for 3 months when they had nowhere else to go.
  • I was in a band that was allowed to play in the yard for the general population at San Quentin, the max security prison that once held Sirhan Sirhan.
  • I can paint, draw, sew and cook.
  • I’m quadrilingual: English, Spanish, Music and Excel,  Oh, that's a language: (=IF(OR(I8<=$D$3,NOW()<$D$3),F8)+IF(AND(NOW​()>$D$3,NOW()<$D$5,I8>$D$3),ROUND((H8*(​NOW()-$D$3)/30*2%)+F8, style="font-family: Symbol; mso-fareast-font-family: Symbol; mso-bidi-font-family: Symbol;"> I can also read and translate much Latin, French, Italian, Portuguese, German and Greek.
  • I am a 2nd generation Mensa member.
  • I’ve raised over 100k planning events for various charitable causes - AIDS, breast-cancer, schools and politicians (Go Jim Judd!).
  • I can rebuild a carbeurator, and own my own power tools.
  • I once remodeled part of my home, tearing down walls, wiring electrical, sheet-rocking, texturing and painting.  By myself.
  • I also reupholstered many pieces of furniture.
  • I own 2 businesses, one as a financial analyst, and the other, an REO field service business, both with long-time happy clients.
  • My parents, kids, sister, brother, niece and nephew like to spend time with me.
  • I can fix just about any computer or smart phone problem anyone will ever have.  And most times I do it just for good Karma.
  • I know enough about MS office and many other software apps that I should probably start a new business.
  • I’ve never done drugs.
  • When I walk in a room, I smile and it always smiles back.
  • I am brave and can prove it.
