I don't eat a lot of candy, but lemon drops are my jam- even better if they're sour. I also like licorice (black and red.) So it's mostly a toss-up for me.

All of the lollies. I like both sweet and sour. I probably eat more sweet because that is what we have at work. And it is less messy.
I also love super salty liquorice when I am studying ( think so salty it looks like it is sour with the crystals on the outside except it is salt)

I am here for the black licorice love. I have a killer sweet tooth so everything is good, but I do love sour candies. Sour Patch Kids are a fave but I also loved Sour Skittles as a kid.

Here's a new one from Mia:

what is one unusual yet useful skill that you have?

I can make sausages. Really anyone could make them if they tried and had the tools, but I can't say I know many people who do it.

Plan to get more creative with it once grad school is over. I have done mostly pork/beef so far. Also interested in making veggie sausage but I haven't ventured into that yet.

i have had to have a think about this one. thank you cyndi fo putting a more positive spin on the question.

because of work, I would say I am able to read some absolutely shocking handwriting. and I can also recognise a lot of tablets just by looking at them. (I spend a good two days a fortnight checking webster paks. which could almost be a skill in its self because everyone I have told about that says they would hate that. but I enjoy it)

as for non-work-related skills. I am really good at making things last. and am fairly practical at stuff like building flat-pack furniture, putting up tents and fixing things, not technology (though it does seem to like me) but things I can visualise or see.

Because of my old work I know a lot about farming but that's kinda useless

I don't have many unusual talents, the closest I have is I'm really good at map reading, like I never really got taught map reading, I've just kinda always been good at it, and in general I have a pretty good sense of direction, if i go somewhere once I can 9/10 remember how to get there by memory alone the second time. So it's not really unusual but it is useful.

I can fix broken staplers! Staples can be stuck or it's literately in two pieces and I always manage put it back together.

Now that I think about it, I'm oddly good at fixing random things, like printers, fax machines, furniture, clogged drains, broken windows, doors etc. If something's broken, I'll work until is usable enough until professionals come, or to where they aren't needed :r

I can work on cars. Apparently it is "unusual" to see a woman working on her own car. I am also great at video games. I can also name all kills, on and off screen, that Michael Myers has done in the Halloween movies.

The last two are pretty useless.

Not sure if this is 'unusual' per say, but I can roll up cables and cords so they don't tangle. Air pods are more the thing now, but my headphones never get into a twist and if I am traveling all my chords are packed neatly and never messed together. It's definitely useful!

This is hard to say, because most of the dance stuff I know how to do is unusual by non-dance-person standards, but the usefulness is fairly limited :p I suppose flexibility is both unusual and useful? I can put my palms on the floor standing on my tiptoes with straight knees, which is handy when I drop things, or when I'm sitting comfortably but my cat is sleeping cute on my feet and I want to Bother her. OH also I can type without looking at my hands and have a completely separate conversation out loud at the same time? That's sort of useful.
