I can't knit for my life; I blaim the Doozers for that, LOL.
The worst thing about it is that in the class I took, my teacher used to make stitches, in order to show me how it was done, and I used to drop the ones she made, which of course, I coudn't pick up again. Sheesh, that was a long sentence.

I can't whistle. And, recently discovered in gym class, I can't hit the golf ball! Mini-golf is fine, sure I get about the worst score, but at least I hit the ball. But "regular" golf or whatever, I swear the ball moves or something.
I can't get really attached to any artsy-craftsy-hobby. I've tried sewing, knitting, crocheting (can anyone spell that?), latch-hooking, painting, and wood carving. Somewhere in my house, there is a half-finished project for every single one of those. It just doesn't work. Which drives my artsy-craftsy-inclined mother and sister absolutely nuts. ...not that they needed any help with that in the first place...

Keep your eyes on the ball while following through with your swing. Don't look up until you've hit the ball. I do that too, I look up too early and miss it. Eye contact is the key! :smile:

And yeah, I always switch projects too. Right now I am hand-sewing a puppet... ^^

I can't... sports, even though I was good at dodgeball in middle school.
...speak any language other than English, even though I got an A+ in all three quarters of Spanish.
...beat Ninja Gaiden 2 on NES. That games is impossible.
...program in Java.
...copy my JHH episodes over to dvds so I don't ruin the original tape any more. The video quality is just terrible when I try to do so.
...manipulate objects with my mind.
...sit through Muppet Oz without falling asleep.
...throw away old papers from high school. For some reason, I find them hilarious. a manual transmission car.
...ride a bike without any hands.
...snap my fingers (not crack my knuckles: I do that just swell).
...erase any old video tape. Even if it is an episode of America's Funniest Home Videos from 1994, I just can't get rid of it.
...find very many threads to post in.
...understand what goes on over in that dorm room thread.
...stop buying clone trooper action figures. I'm up to at least 30 of them and that's just the episode 3 variety.
...believe I ever liked that "Macarena" song when I was 11 or 12.
...parallel park.
...ever finish any songs or stories I begin. I do sometimes, but this is very rare. people on the phone if I don't know if they will answer. I just have a weird thing about asking for people. puppets. All I can make are puppets of the sock variety.
...enjoy doing math.
...reanimate the dead. a Jason/Freddie movie without laughing.
...go into a cemetery at night, even though I live across the street from one.
...enjoy any book that was given as part of a homework assignment. any reptile or amphibian. I love them too much.
...let my DVDs be arranged out of alphabetical order on the shelf. Skittles without getting a sore throat. the piano even though I can play guitar and a half dozen other instruments. music in treble clef.
...enjoyably sit through watching a DCI (Drum Corps International) marching band field show even though I did marching band for 4 years in high school. a steak if there is any fat on it.
...use a public restroom.
...answer questions such as this one in a short, punctual manner.

Oh I know, I can't stand talking on the phone, with the exception of my dad, who's on the road quite a bit right now.
