Does the pony negate the sophistication of the Magritte?

     Most people have special skills, ones they consistently excel at through hard work and/or raw talent. I'm not one of those people. I have no talents *. I bow to the superior writing of my blogging peers. I let the singers take care of harmonizing as guitarists finger frets without my interference. Baking soufflés is outside of my expertise, and I can barely draw stick figures. I'm not even especially photogenic, goshdarnit!

     Strangely enough, I've accomplished bits and pieces everything I mentioned above. My writing, singing, guitar playing, baking, drawing, and face in photographs have all been complimented before. I'm decent at all of the things listed.

. . . So my talent is being almost talented at things?

     I was going to write a conclusion or something, but I drowned my sorrows in making a My Little Pony/Magritte reference and posting it on my new tumblr

Because it's only a representation of a pony? Geddit?
I'm not even a brony, why did I do this?

Did I mention that I am EXTREMELY untalented attention span wise?


*With the exception of my ability to contort my disproportionately long arms over my head in a way that looks kind of cool.


  1. I don't think you're untalented at all. And judging from your picture, you look more photogenic than me. I look different on camera compared to real life, bringing me disgrace everywhere. Particularly on Facebook, but thank God kids from school moved to Twitter where people are more concerned about tweet wars than photos.

    The pony is very cute, by the way, and of course I had to translate the French.

    1. Oh, I'm sure you look fine in photos! Everyone is their own worst critic, right?

  2. I like your reference to Magritte. It made me smile. Can we be tumblr bros?

    1. Yay, thank you!
      I learned about the painting from a John Green book. x)
      And of course we can! I may or may not have already sent an overly enthusiastic thing about that. Oops.

  3. I feel very much like your first paragraph. And is being photogenic a talent?

    1. Oh, I like your writing!
      I can't really give input on the other stuff I listed. x)
      Well, models are talented and their talent lies in looking nice on cameras. So I suppose so.


Comments make me feel all warm and fuzzy, and I'm very interested in what you say. :D
