re. memorizing. I'm a big fan. Whether it's a poem by Frost or a song lyric by Kurt Cobain. I don't know how much stuff you've memorized, but how many times a month would you say it comes in handy - that you have a few memorized lines on hand that perfectly fit a situation?

I like to annoy my wife with it :)

For example, a snowstorm a little while back prompted a walk through our local greenway. We passed under a tree, covered in snow, and I said the line, "I like to think some boy's been swinging them..." She didn't know to get away, despite the hint, and we both got dowsed in snow as I pulled a branch.
