You learn something new everyday--

-- but you don't always learn something "useful".

"Some things" I learned yesterday:

The first person to decorate their Christmas tree electric lights was Edward Johnson in 1882. He worked at Edison Electric Light Company and had the lights made especially for him. Nice job, Ed.

William and Mary College, where my little brother Daniel goes, is the second oldest institution of higher education in the United States. It was founded in 1693!

Side-note: Robert Gates is a graduate of William and Mary.

Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) was born in Fort Collins, CO—where I went to school (I may have found that because I wanted to see if CSU could compare to William and Mary—it can’t—you win, Daniel.)

I think that’s all I learned… oh, wait. Sara taught me what ‘radio buttons’ are and she probably taught me how to spell something. Unfortunately, I rarely retain forced facts. (hehe--just kidding Sara : )

You know you can always get your random facts from me! I mean, lesbianism, Panic! At The Disco, the history of lunatic asylums...you really don't take sufficient advantage of all I have to offer.
