Monday Questionnaire
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me" edition

1. Share a compliment you've recently received.

2. You're at a party, maybe you've had a few, and you hear yourself say, "Guess what I can do?" What particular talent, stunt, or bit of derring-do follows?

3. Name someone who admires you.

1. A friend with whom I shared my most recent short story read it immediately (a compliment in itself) and then called to tell me she found it very funny and wanted to tell her friends about it.

2. I'd touch my nose with my tongue.

3. Well, a girl broke up with me once and told me, in an effort to mitigate I suppose, that she really admired me. I asked if by "admired" she meant, perhaps, "wanted to sleep with." She did not. I told her that her admiration and two dollars would buy me a subway token.

1. My shiatsu case study told me she's become "addicted" to shiatsu.

2. Probably a times step.

3. I think the kitten admires me. She follows me around.

1. I was using two hand dryers to dry my hands in an otherwise empty public restroom, and a woman who came in thought that was the most brilliant thing she'd ever seen.

2. Recite Dorothy Parker's "One Perfect Rose," Ogden Nash's "The Abominable Snowman," and the first several stanzas of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," with minimal errors

3. My boyfriend, because he was very impressed by the birthday gifts with which I surprised him last Wednesday

1. My yoga teacher told me (a couple of months ago) that I have excellent form--which is a huge compliment to me, because I'm still pretty inflexible, so lots of poses are really out of my range right now. And S and his friends REALLY liked the chocolate tart I sent to the party with S on Friday night--so much so that they hoarded it rather than sharing it with all and sundry. (In general I regard the compliments on my baked goods to be an artifact of (a) being in school for these things and having access to good equipment and recipes and (b) people not getting homemade stuff very often, so I tend to discount the compliments.)
2. Umm, I don't know; do a yoga pose? use a polysyllabic word? I guess a headstand would be moderately impressive, especially if I were wearing a skirt . . .
3. People with whom I've worked tend to say admiring things, I think.
