I have an amazing brain. I'm not saying it's necessarily more amazing than yours (althought it could be, ha), but I don't have your brain, so I don't know. But i do know that mine is amazing. I don't know how, but when i need to recall something, it begins to work. I can feel it. I can't feel it in specific places, like "Oh there it is.. the lower left quadrant of my brain.." (i'm pretty sure that's what parts of the brain are called--quadrants) but I know it's working. For example:
Last night before going to sleep Sean and i were talking about how i can recall the theme music from totally random movies i haven't seen for years, nor were they particularly grand or stood out much. And then we were talking about the movie Far and Away and I couldn't remember the theme music. "Shoot! I can do it," i said. I kept singing the music from Lord of the Rings. (turns out, they both start out the same. I knew they must have been similiar, because why else would i be singing it? but i didn't know how they were similar). But i knew I was close. It was right there..riiiight there. But I just wasn't locating it. I said, "c'mon brain... come on!" and then about 2 seconds later i said, "GOT IT!" but i could only come up with a small bit. By this time I was pretty deliriously sleepy so I said, "Well, ok. I'm going to go to sleep now, brain. But while I do, try and find how the song goes and let me know when you have it, ok?"
Then i dreamt about how Gwen Stefani and I were pals and she invited me over to her house.
Morning comes. I am roused a bit from my sleep early in the morning and I immediately begin to sing (in my head) the correct and complete theme melody from Far and Away. It was as if my brain was saying, "wake up, Jen. I've got it. Jeeeen, wake uuuuup..." So, good job, brain! Thanks for helping me out. Ahh. Good ol' brain...
