What I’m good at (other than not using propositions appropriately).

One thing I’m good at doing is stealing other people’s ideas and using them for my own posts. Like, in this instance, I am totally cribbing this from Grace.

I’m good at . . .

  • Making people laugh.
  • Controlling the world around me.
  • Having no shame.
  • Jumping on bandwagons.
  • Remembering movie and television trivia.
  • Being accidentally intimidating.
  • Throwing parties.
  • Being a friend.
  • Misunderstanding song lyrics.
  • Awkwardly dancing.
  • Holding grudges.
  • Justifying.
  • Getting naked.
  • Providing too much information.
  • Dreaming.
  • Connecting with absolutely anyone.
  • Expressing my feelings.
  • Using my words.
  • Driving aggressively.
  • Remembering important dates and appointments.
  • Observing the world.
  • Spelling.
  • Thinking it’s always about me.
  • Protecting and saving those who don’t need it.
  • Arguing semantics.
  • Speed reading.
  • Swimming.
  • Geeking out.
  • Sneaking around like a ninja.
  • Cooking.
  • Patting myself on the back.
  • Talking on the phone for hours.
  • Listening.
  • Empathizing.
  • Demonizing.
  • Playing board games like Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Scattergories, and Cranium.
  • Surviving on very little sleep.
  • Multitasking.
  • Making friends.
  • Loving.

And now I’ll ask you. What are you good at doing?

In other Avita-news, one of my bestest friends Casey is pregnant! Go give her lots of love and congratulations, and offer completely unsolicited baby name suggestions. Here are some ones that I recommend:

  1. Magnificus
  2. Adam Heath (or, for a girl, Adamina Heatherella)
  3. Red Velvet
  4. Swashbuckle
  5. The
  6. Sinderhella
  7. Flea

  1. I’m good at lots and lots of shizz. Of course, it involves hummus. And wine. And really stupid slang from the early 00’s. And I’m totally kick ass at holding down this recliner with my ass.

          1. @Avitable, Va. Beach. I saw The Laugher last night and just talking about how every picture I take of her she’s laughing, she started laughing all over again. The best was a candid I took in DC two weeks ago. It’s on FB, look at Va. Tech / Boise State folder under my name.

  2. I’m not going to tell you what I’m good at because now I have to steal this. So read my blog tomorrow.

    In the meantime, it is perfectly acceptable to end a sentence, in English, with a preposition. It is not acceptable in Latin and somewhere along the line some guy decided that English should be more like Latin and hence the myth. The New York Times doesn’t end sentences with prepositions because they “get letters.” And that’s the only reason.

    P.S. – It’s also OK to split an infinite. True story.

  3. I am good at being myself! Hahahaha! Clearly I can’t think of anything! Awesome post though…going to forward it to my sister….she’s on the down-low 🙁 Sure would help her! Or rather I’ll make a list for her. What my sister is good at!!! 🙂

  4. I don’t know what you are talking about.
    It’s perfectly fine to use a preposition to end a sentence with.
    I suppose it depends on where you live at.
    Especially acceptable, if the Midwest is where you are from.

  5. But do you stay on the bandwagons? And did you give careful thought to why you jumped on them? Did you read the bandwagon’s EULA ahead of jumping on?

    I’m good at finding the angle apparently no one else in the universe sees. It’s very isolating.

    I currently have red velvet cupcakes in my kitchen for my house guest’s imminent arrival. I vote for Red Velvet as the baby’s name.
