Handy Dandy skills for the modern single gal.

Today's post is going to be more along the lines of a list. There are some things that I would love to be able to do. They might be generally useless but I would still love to have the knowhow. Whether to incorporate it into a novel or simply turn it into a party trick these would be so fun or interesting to know.

1. Pick a lock
2. Pick someone's pocket
3.Get into, and hot-wire, a car
4. Know sign language
5. Read someone's mind...mentalist style.
6. Make gravy. I can't help it, aside from IKEA gravy I simply suck at it!!!
7. Fly a plane
8. Hack into anyone's computer
9. Write a novel in under a month or two.
10. Interrogate as effectively as Brenda from The Closer...she's so good at it (yes I know it's a TV show)
 So I'm starting to sense a theme here....Being a cat burglar would be pretty awesome though...Hmm maybe I shouldn't be trusted. :/


  1. Bahahaha!! As sad as it is...I want to do all those things too!! Plus being able to do that cool hat thing Neal does, being able to hypnotise someone without them noticing (Jane style) and being able to dance :D

  2. Oh good point! *adds all three to list*

  3. ooh also having that 'bad vibe' thing would be handy!!

  4. Pete's thing? yeah. And photographic memory, like Shawns

  5. I'd like to be able to pick a lock, too. Actually, when I was younger I ordered lock picks ... never got the hang of using them though.

  6. You have lock picks? Awesome. I'd love some! But you kind of need to know how to use them :/

  7. If you had some lock picks, what would you break into?

  8. dont need to break in!!

  9. I think your list is awesome! Maybe we could start the club of legendary criminals or something :-D
