Yeah, I know what you mean. Hell, I *STILL* remember the license plate of one of my old girl friend's cars from 15 years ago. I'm jammed full of those weird idioms and trivias. I can still remember how to calibrate a commodore 1540 5 1/4" floppy drive, but I couldn't tell you the name of the person I just talked to on the phone. heh. Although I think that has more to do with my other condition (that I rarely speak of... ADD). ;)
Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
