Whatever: I collect baseball caps, but seldom wear them. Would turn to bisexuality, but finding a decent man in this day and age is apparently a cross-gender problem. Have what seems to be an undiagnosed ADHD which is the only reason I still come back to this site as this is one of the few places it's actually useful =)
My memory is associative, meaning I can't recall anything directly, but if I stare at my own post from yesterday about it, the associations and thoughts in my head will bring out what is needed to solve the problem. This poses a lot of fun issues concerning exams (both taking and giving, as I've decided to stick to teaching kids for now) as I can't always remember the right answers to questions I myself ask of others =)
