I would always wear my ipod and listen to music while taking a test in grad school to zone out all the extraneous noises. One day during the middle of a test my friend next to me poked me and I looked up to see the whole class, including the instructor, looking at me and chuckling. Unbeknownst to me, I was starting to sing along to the Talking Heads that was playing...that day ended my habit of listening to music while testing. Nowadays instructors are so uptight about people cheating that I doubt the practice would be allowed anyway. Students aren't allowed to even bring water bottles into a test.

About a month ago I gave my grandparents a copy of OCMS by Old Crow Medicine Show. Today I gave 'em a visit and my grandpa told me he really likes the album. Just another reason I'm the superior grandchild.
while buried in research/writing for the aforementioned e-portfolio (aka: the devil), I discovered this tidbit: an early treatment for smallpox included administering "twelve bottles of small beer every twenty-four hours"
On the first day of my cultural communications class (a 100 level class, mind you) this girl raised her hand and asked the professor, "how do you feel about the oxford comma?" It was completely unsolicited and off topic. She's become "that girl" in the class.
