this is fun - seeing a different side of each other!

i am a vast repository of random and off-the-wall information that most people think is totally useless - but is great for Trivial Pursuit and other nerdy games.

i have a great memory and have learned many funny/melodramatic poems and used to perform monologues, including an hour-long one-man show - all memorized.

i have a photographic memory for colors - very helpful when trying to match clothes or home decorating items in stores to things that i don't have with me at the time.

i can do character makeup, including building beards and making prosthetic noses, scars, etc.

when i go to an art gallery i usually know more about the major pieces than the guides do.

i pick up accents very easily and can convince other people that i am from someplace else when i imitate the foreign accents.
