Good thing I don't do beauty pageants...

Do you ever wish you were really, really good at just one thing??? Like singing, or writing, or dancing, or soccer or whatever. Like REALLY freaking good. Not like "Oh yeah, she's good at taking pictures" but like, "OMG, she just won the Pulitzer Prize for photography!" good.

Well. I think we are all really, REALLY good at something. But most of us never figure out what that one thing is. Lack of opportunity, time, money, who knows. Like you could secretly be a whiz at Native American traditional dancing but you were born in Austria so not much Native American dancing going on. Or you could be fabulous at lacrosse but you never picked up a lacrosse stick or net or however you play it so how would you ever know????

My one thing is playing Bejeweled Blitz on facebook. Fun, yes, but not very practical as talents go, unfortunately. If only my score of 998,350 in this week's tournament could be converted into dollars... Then I could retire early and spend time cultivating a less lame talent.

Oh well. At least I'm not this girl.

Thanks for my laugh this morning. Yep glad I am not this girl. I am so jealous of your score at Bejewled Blitz. Man, I suck at that game. I love it, but I really suck at it.

I knew there was something we had in common that I could not put my finger on...an addiction to Bejeweled Blitz! LOL! Love that game! (and agreed, not the best use of my time, but such a stress buster!) I had one score over 900,000 once, and I still wasn't at the top of my leaderboard! I'm a coin hoarder, so once I'm in the top 3, I stop using the Phoenix Prisms and Cat's Eyes...because I will never beat my 2 friends in the top 2! Have you noticed PopCap's gotten suddenly stingy with letting you gift mystery treasures? Seriously, i need to form a support group for my addiction!

And that video...priceless. I'll take Bejeweled any day as my talent! LOL!

I admit... I'm quite impressed with that score!

Wow!! Thank goodness she's thin...

I am amazing at untying knots and untangling things. Seriously. Awesome. People should pay me to go to their homes and separate their necklaces.

There are so many ridiculously funny moments in beauty pageants, and this is one of them. Thanks for the laugh!
