I use this "-" a lot. Maybe it's a pause, maybe I am catching a breath, or maybe it's because Zim is forcing me to use it.
I have a dark and wacky sense of humor, which gets me into trouble a lot but ends up becoming a pretty good filter. Either you laugh because you are witty enough to understand the jokes or you are accommodating enough to laugh even when you don't - both of which are highly-desirable qualities in a partner.
I have been known to swing a pretty mean carving knife, my head swinging back in maniacal laughter as I rip the damp cold heart out of heads of lettuce and slice, with deadly precision, the eyes out of potatoes. My tortures continue for hours as my hapless victims are boiled in oil, skewered from rump to tip on stakes of stainless steel, pressed against a cast iron brand, flayed to ribbons, and sent to the furnace.
Safety Notice: the previous paragraph was not placed in the "I'm really good at." section.
I walk to work each day to a small company (about 18 people) in a dusty old red brick building with uneven floors and wood beams larger than trees are even allowed to grow nowadays. We work on a project basis, so we are either extraordinarily busy or so dead it makes my teeth wiggle.
Then again, why did I admit this? You could be a secret double agent out to get me.
umm - my eyes, that is it! You notice my eyes. Look deep into my eyes. You are getting very sleepy. Let the weight of the world wash away. You don't think I am a secret agent. When I count to 10, you will awake free and happy.
I tend to get compliments about my ass - or are they saying that I am an ass. It is hard to tell the difference sometimes.

- imagination (probably would be dead already if I didn't have this)
- clean laundry (only way to prevent alien abduction while asleep; Arm & Hammer isn't just a brand name)
- water (preferably warm and falling downwards onto me or cold and pouring into me)
