No, really. A summary is more than just "this guy was in jail and then he was let out. He learned that his wife and best friend were dead, and then some crazy old guy offered him a job as an errand boy,"* etc, etc.
All throughout my high school career, summaries were seen as EVOL and so we never wrote them. Now I have to choose something we've read in English and summarize it in one paragraph.
To make it even harder, they're all memoir type things full of self reflection and otherwise poetic nonsense. How the hell do you summarize that? (How would you summarize say, Wind, Sand and Stars?)
This song has been stuck in my head for days now. I wish I put Weird Al on my mp3 player so when I'm feeling shitty in Drawing for being unable to draw angles to save my life, I'd have something funny to listen to. Actually, I need to get Scott to let me burn all his Weird Al cds because I'm too lazy to drive out to Best Buy. Nyeeeh!
Did I mention that the only thing I have on my i-Tunes is either punk rock or The Beatles?
