Stupid Gina Tricks

- I can crack my lower spine just by tensing my leg muscles when I am sitting or laying down.

- I know the lyrics to almost every song I have ever heard.

- I can guess almost all the answers on Jepoardy!, but I always miss the Final Jepoardy! question. It's very annoying. If I was ever on the show, my strategy would have to be answer almost every question, thus leaving me able to bet 0 and still win.

-I have an uncanny ability to judge rate of speed+distance, something that serves me well driving in SoCal.

-I can almost always pee on command. Perhaps not a lot, but something.

-I can make spatzle just like my grandmother.

-I can lift one eybrow independently of the other.

-I never use bookmarks, I can always remember exactly where I left off.

And of course, not one of these wonderful talents can make me money in any way, shape, or form.

Tell me some of yours!

Can you touch your nose with your tongue? That's about all I got. Not a impressive trick now, but worked well for me when I was single and having fun!

I don't know the lyrics to any song that I've ever heard. Oh, I guess that's lack of talent. Hmmm, well I can flap my cheeks in some sort of weird way that's hard to describe but tends to make people chuckle -- perhaps at me and not with me, eh?

I do a fabulous spit-take. Really. It's a thing of beauty.

I spit beer all over a friend in a bar once. There was a guy flirting with her and when she wouldn't get up to dance with him he made a pouty face...big lower lip pushed out kind of pout. She reached up with her index finger and tapped on his big, lower lip and said 'awwww, so sad.'

I thought it was really funny. That's when the beer went flyin'.

It's very dangerous for me to think something is really funny and drink at the same time. I try not to do it or I try to clamp a hand over my mouth if the two activites are going on simultaneously.

I can blow bubbles with my spit, though I havent tried since I was 8-ish. Still, it qualifies as a skill.

I can also touch my nose with my tongue.

Hi BJ! I recognize you from Mel's!

Now I have to say I am feeling fairly inadequate about the tongue to the nose thing.

Time to start practicing!
