Today marks a new level in utterly ridiculous here at Casa Hartwell. After two mind numbing weeks of revision, the exams are in full swing and #1 son has developed some innovative if unusual study methods which will undoubtedly get him committed for an extended period if he tries them in the classroom. The one that's really driving me mental is Singing Revision. This involves belting out whatever you're trying to remember to the tune of whatever it is you're currently listening to, which makes for some seriously bizarre combinations. So far we've had Naming the Digestive System to the tune of American Idiot, Plant Cells vs Animal Cells a-la California Dreaming and Linkin Park performing the unforgettable "Causes of the Black Death in Medieval Europe". My head hurts.
