So anyway, I'm writing something because I'm like the William Faulkner of distressed drunks, and so anyway I need to do some research, and I'm on Wikipedia searching up stuff of Eidetic Memory, and I realise, like WOW I am totally a Power Ranger or X-Men person because of my eidetic recall of rounds of drinks. In my present job I have three or four or sometimes five totally hot* waitresses shouting noises that seem to sound like 'Dietpepsiicenolimon' and 'istheresuchathingasamerettoandcoketimestwo?icenolemon' and 'iaskedyouforfourpepsisandashirazandtheyneedaglasswithice' and I'm like Sheldon from that popular television series. You know. How Sheldon The Tortoise Grew His Shell.

Srsly, some of you have gotten drunk with me, name a time and place and I will recall with hilariously inaccurate accuracy what I ordered.

So what are your cool X-Person skills?






* I mention this only because it means I also have to juggle three, four or five double entendres at a time, have to remember who I'm being faux-mean to, who I'm being faux-flirtatious with, and who I'm just being a normal person to. Spinning plates? Piece of piss.

you knit amazingly!

this probably doesn't fit since i can't really control it, but i have bizarrely fantastical dreams all the time.

last one was staged in a grocery warehouse where my friends were trying to throw me a surprise birthday party (dreams never make any sense), but there were lots of visuals with body-like-bumps poking out of giant cardboard boxes, moving around inside and people being smushed against window panes (faces, body parts, trying to hide themselves from being seen) and moving vehicles with no one inside of them. it sounds kinda creepy now that i think about it, but i was definitely having a blast during the dream.

I don't remember anything until you give me the right cue, and then I remember everything. Totally worthless because I don't know what the cue is until I hear it, unless I spend a ton of time reviewing the info (deep processing makes more cues).

So, for instance, a coworker asked me who was at a staff meeting she didn't attend and I could only remember the person on my right. Later, another coworker said she'd been there, and suddenly I remembered who was there, what they wore, how their hair was fixed, and what each of them thought of a project.

Also, if you change your hair I'll always notice. Even people I haven't seen in weeks, I'll notice if they've dyed their hair or if it's shorter. The older nurses love it. "My husband didn't even notice!" they'll say.

when "seinfeld" was running in syndication at 7pm, i had an amazing ability to predict which episode was going to air. now that it is no longer being shown, my power is useless.

What if they wear their hair different every day?

I suppose one of my unusual talents would be knitting chainmaille.

My unusual talent is being incredibly ordinary. Actually, I suppose that's pretty common.

Oh, I know. My unusual talent is making jokes no one understands. Also, freaking people out with my hyper-extended limbs!

Don't know, never met anyone who did that. If I ever do, I'll update here!

I have double jointed thumbs.....so double jointed that i can dislocate them at will and squish the bottom part of my hand small enough to push out of handcuffs that aren't blood flow impedingly cinched on.
