Want to brag? What have you done in your life that is worth bragging about? Highest SAT scores in your class? Class president? Homecoming Queen? Biggest Scholarship? Highest GPA? Best salary?

Anything goes. Maybe if all the bragging is here, it can be kept in one place!!

I'll start...

My son got a perfect score on auditions for a state wide ensemble. It had never been done before on his instrument.

    I have the cutest puppy in the whole wide world! Really, I do. People stop us all the time and tell us so. We are considering getting her an agent, she is so darn cute.

    My daughter got a great summer internship in a town near her school, and coincidentally she and some friends are renting a house next year, with the lease beginning June 1! and, it pays really well!

    S is accepted to his first choice school with Honors & scholarship, is done with his app process. He's now rehearsing for his spring musical, where he has the lead.

    Fishymom, what kind of puppy do you have? I.Love.Puppies.

    I am the best online bargain hunter. It's my new hobby, and I'm known far and wide in my very small circle of friends for this extraordinary talent.
    Really, if I have an item number, say of an LG blu ray player model so and so, I can locate a price sometimes half as much as other places online OR bricks and mortar.
    Sometimes its Amazon, sometimes ebay buy it now, sometimes a coupon code from Kohls, it's different for each item. My 'methods' are superior to online shopping bots, IMHO. Of course, any money savings are eaten up in the considerable TIME that I expend to save said money. Sigh. It IS fun though.

    I also helped raise two lovely young adults.......

    My kid said to me last night that she "didn't have time to go into it" right then, but I better be ready for some "parenting time" this weekend. ;)

    So here's my "brag":

    I'm not completely useless!

    Thumper, congrats to your son! And mom, 2 of 3 is pretty darn great in my book. Allthis, what a proud moment for you! Toblin, that is my goal in life and we are well on our way to achieving it. And curmudgeon, everybody here knows you are definitely NOT useless, haha!

    Justamom, my puppy is a Corgi mix. She has the colorings of a Jack Russell, a bulldog behind and a Corgi body. She is the smartest dog I have ever known and just a sweetheart.

    I worked in a German brewery when I was in college.

    I have vague memories of draining a German brewery (or three) in college.
