Here is a list of talents and/or skills I wish I possessed.

-stunt driving (right now stick shifts and parallel parking are out of the question)
-eyebrow manipulation (I think this one is genetic...)
-doodling (my roommate Sarah says that doodling is free form so everyone possesses it as an ability, but I submit that I'm bad at it)
-grilling (because it's delicious)
-swimming (because I look great in a swimsuit)
-horse riding/tricks (because I want an excuse to make a riding habit)
-hair clippering (like shearing sheep in Australia. I want to be good at people and sheep)
-ballroom dancing (there has to be guy that's 6'5" and willing to teach me...?)
-furniture upholstering (fresh look to an old room!)
-photography (I can't get a job with horrible photography)
-oil painting (why not)
-paper cutting (instant fun!)
-standup comedy (I say I wish I possessed this talent, but I'm pretty sure I already do)
-hand stands (there's a lot of me to fall, but a lot of me to hand stand)

I had a great time this past weekend in Provo. I drove up with Mel and drove back with Lando and in the in between I just hung out with all my great Provo friends. I got to see all my ward peeps at a stake activity and FINALLY watched Kung Fu Panda afterward on Saturday night. It having been Memorial Day weekend and all a lot of friends were out of town, so even though I said I'd stay down here until I'm done I might have to come back up in a bit...but I might also have to work half Saturdays until opening, so don't get TOO excited (although I will :)).

FHE on Monday was terrific. A guy in the ward has a ranch and so he took us on a pictograph hike and then we had a HUGE bonfire and made s'mores. I made new friends and ate some campfire treats and it was fun. Other than that, I was going to go to ultimate frisbee and Institute and organize a foursquare game this week, but I've been working nights and going to rehearsals.

Work this week has been very off and on. Monday was a fantastically on day. My sewing was excellent and fast and the day just sped by. Tuesday was terrible. Everything took forever and I had to hand stitch and redo and blah blah blah, just an off day. Yesterday was somewhere in the middle. Titania's cape is a GIANT eyelash fabric that we are covering with 4" strips of glitzy chiffons. I spent yesterday day and night cutting the strips to length. I have spent all morning doing the same. I will spend the afternoon and evening pinning them on.

Tomorrow is Friday, but I will work a half day on Saturday so big whoop. I'm hoping to do some driving on Saturday afternoon to find a pretty spot to paint.
