Taking Phil's venue  - can I suggest that this took place in the pub garden? 

If we're doing the cheek-popping thing that should be done indoors because the acoustics are better.  I'm probably over-thinking this though.

In fact, do you want that event to be in the snug, rather than the lounge bar?

I'm good at eating.  End of.  I challenge any of you to a contest 

I'm nicking that flapjack recipe, looks good.  I had a great one then lost it; this is v. similar

Baking. Cakes, biscuits, bread... not so good at eating it though, so I'd need volunteers

I'm also very good at anagrams

I can also do this:

Oh really now?  I had an audience when I took on the octuple eggburger challenge from Greasy's burger van back in 1989.  Then there's the 48oz steak from Arthur's in Hoboken, NJ.  That was a beast!

I'm almost certain I've been to Arthur's in Hoboken

I'm a zen master when it comes to the balancing games on wii fit, and reckon I could win many golds at a wii winter Olympics as well (my ski-jumping and speed slalom technique is pretty damn good)

When I was a kid I used to be good at balancing a large pile of (big, old) pennies on my elbow, then whipping my arm down and catching the pennies.

I shall have a go at that later!

I'm pretty good at avoiding doing what I'm supposed to be doing and posting on the forum istead

It's interesting how many of these are food related. what does that say about us as afletes?

Parallel parking. I once got a round of applause from a queue of people waiting to get in to an Edinburgh Festival show, after parking outside in a particularly tight spot. Actually, on reflection, I should have told them it was performance art and passed a hat round.

I am very good at turning previously tidy rooms into monuments to untidiness. It's not just a natural gift, I have put in a lot of practice as well.

My missus wins the Gold medal for "Most Handbags in the dining room"  13 !!

And i once found 11 pairs of shoes in her lounge before we moved in together.

Child juggling and general circus acrobatic involving a 4yo.

I can also peel an Orange in a single piece, so, when laid out flat, the peel resembles a dimpled Orange cock and balls.
