First off, did you guys know that everybody in the Breakfast Club has a LAST NAME?  And that Claire, whose hidden talent is putting on lipstick with no hands, is named Standish?  My mind is blown, even though I was only looking into this because of today’s MS-QOTD topic.  After my kid’s first marching band tournament last night, during which I was rained on and repeatedly kicked by a 20-something dad who kept screaming at his son BUBBBBAAAAAA! right in my ear, I realized that the child is really skilled with a flute.  Not only that, she can march while playing the thing, which is a step up from my general difficulty in walking and chewing gum, and leading to today’s prodigious query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) occasionally likes to sing and frighten people who don’t know that I can; also I can tape all your buns together, asking: What’s YOUR hidden talent?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. If I tell, it won’t be hidden anymore!

    I guess mine is that I am actually very musical. I play the flute and violin and I sing. People where I used to go to church know because I did those things there, but those who know me now don’t know.
