    Things you're good at/bad at

    I'm intensely bored - time to find out a little more about the population of CWLand. Name your three biggest talents (blowing your own trumpet is encouraged [but no ing of that bit allowed]), and three things you can't do to save your life. They can be from absolutely any aspect of life whatsoever.

    Things I'm good at:
    Learning/speaking foreign languages
    Writing about sport
    Holding my alcohol

    Things I'm rubbish at:
    Bowling
    Having good taste in music
    Lying

    I am good at:

    Writing, be it creatively, or about sport, or about anything really
    Drinking Guinness
    Making people laugh/winding people up (the things I say always result in the two differing reactions from people )

    I am bad at:
    Sport that involves coordination (ie everything except running, which I used to be good at, I still have good technique but I am now an alcoholic and only stopped smoking six weeks ago, nuff said)
    Letting things so. Must have last word.
    Science

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Nah, I meant people weren't allowed to quote "biggest talents" followed by a . I think anyone who's willing to state what you did in your list of talents deserves credit.

    And three was just a guideline - mostly put there because I was trying to hide the fact I don't have many talents.
