i check my voicemail.. there's a message from my mom..
mom: hi daniel, i see you're still not in your room studying for finals. well i just called to give you some more good advice. if you do decide to go to burlington, don't pick up any hitchikers....
me listening: hahahahahahahaha
mom's message continues: don't laugh at me! i'm just being a mom...
and she said more stuff, but that's the good part
 for my cousin's bday party
