My barn drain... I mean darn brain.

Last night I noticed a conflict in my head that demonstrated a certain trait... I was trying to read LiveJournal while the news was on TV. I wasn't trying to pay attention to the news at all, I just wanted to read the journal entry on the screen. But I couldn't. I found that after reading a sentence or two, my short-term memory didn't contain the last few words I had read, but rather the last few words I heard from the TV.

This explains how I play piano by ear... I must have an excessive ability to recall sounds I've recently heard. It also explains why reading is so frustrating for me at times (although I also have difficulty when there's no audible distraction).
