Analysis: Trivia

Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

E. Lockhart, the author of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is actually a vegetarian. Perhaps some inspiration for the Canned Beet Rebellion prank? (Source.)

E. Lockhart also says of writing about high school: "High school is a microcosm of trapped individuals." Sounds about right to Shmoop. No wonder she captured the high school life so perfectly in this book. (Source.)

Just in case you were wondering, it turns out you can indeed get a large plastic basset hound lawn ornament.

Caltech Ditch Day is still going strong. Check out the shenanigans here.

You may have thought that SantaCon (which Frankie referenced in her paper) couldn't have been a real thing. Well, it is. And it's glorious
