Odd, I know.²* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking - I saw a comment on a forum that said, "Stealing, lying, and wearing socks with sandals are all downright wrong."²* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter - Although I haven't actually seen this trope firsthand, I read a magazine article about this trope.

I had to chase it away with an umbrella.²* DeusExMachina - One time, I had to bring a big heavy contrabass clarinet from the music store to school. I had no idea how I'd bring it there.

Music at [=McGill=], huh? That sounds pretty awesome. :O What was it like? ({{iamdatroper}})²--EmilyG here. Music at [=McGill=] was fun, now that I look back at it. Very difficult, but I met a lot of cool people.
