I always loved Just as Long as We're Together,think it was a Rachel Robinson spinoff?

Counting Crows, anyone? I never liked them, and my suitemate in college was named Maria so she played that one song ALL THE TIME. One time I went to a free outdoor Smithereens concert, which was awesome, but before the show they played that entire CC album and it was really hard to sit through.

I thought of yet another - I love Beyonce up and down all over all her albums, but I feel like someone's running a cheese grater up my spine whenever "If I Were a Boy" comes on.

Also, my one Hatesong is that stupid sad Snow Patrol song because it's just a terrible song and it reminds me of my quasi-stalker from the UK.

Oh, are we talking about stuff that is crappy but we like, or stuff we really just hate? I like a lot of crappy stuff but James Taylor makes me want to poke my eyes out. The aggressive mellowness!!! Needless to say, I had a college housemate who LOVED James Taylor. Particularly at about 7.30 AM.

So, Hairpin. About 100 days ago, I donated some stem cells to my dad to combat his stage-4 lymphoma. Since then, we've just been waiting to see how things would go. Well, the 100 Day Later scans show no evidence of cancer in his marrow, nor in the rest of his body.

My dad is coming home cancer free.

My senior quote was "Remember Bennifer? Man. Bennifer;" I was in no clubs and was voted nothing at all.

It is true that once you have friends it becomes easier to make more, at least in my experience.

What worked for me was finding something that was purely social, met every week, and was aimed at people my age who I knew I had something in common with. I'd done stuff that was aimed at young professionals before but they would be one-off meetings and so there wasn't an easy way to keep seeing the same people on a regular basis and getting to know them that way before trying to hang out. I would meet cool people and have fun but then I would never see those people again.

I have a cousin named Cooter, no joke.
