So it's a bit heavy on the locations and peoples but that's okay. I really like this album! I am thinking maybe during the Christmas break I might actually attempt to write these songs :)

This meme reminds me of the book I'm currently reading called The Know-It-All about a AJ Jacobs who set out to read the entire Encyclopedia Brittanica. He felt like his brain was sorta going to mush since college and he wanted to get smarter. Moreover, he's restoring his father's honor because apparently his dad made the same promise but gave up on the B's. I can relate to Jacobs on many levels. I'm constantly thinking I need to get smarter. And I bought it partially because it reminds me of my dad. He is known to pick out a volume of the nearest encyclopedia and start reading if we're up at a family gathering and he's not feeling chatty. Um, and I'm not going to mention the times I've found volumes in the bathroom. I know Dad hasn't read the entire Brittanica, but I bet he's made it further than AJ Jacob's dad! (My dad can outread your dad...) Plus, the cover had a blurb by Jon Stewart talking about how great the book is and the author's from an NPR show I like so seemed like a good bet. I'm only on the first few chapters but so far it's really funny. Better yet, not only is it a fun read, he's actually going over what's he's reading so i'm learning about...well, right now he's still in the A's so I haven't learned that much yet. But I'm gonna be smarter when I'm done.

I love reading the Encyclopedia! It's fun. Studying German makes my head hurt but it makes me feel like I'm doing something useful.
