Look like the innocent flower, But be the serpent under it. --Lady Macbeth
I grew up very close to Boston and I was in the band, and I only hung out with "Band Kids" ....but it wasn't until after graduation, when I grew closer with a couple other people from my hometown that WEREN'T in the band, that I found out everyone else basically stereo-typed each other based on the college in "the City" they figured everyone would end up at. One girl actually showed me a yearbook from junior year that she an her friends had marked up and assigned every kid in our graduating class of 300 a group. I wish I was kidding.
The largest groups were the "BU Dude-Bros" (you know, all those guys that ran around saying "DUDE.... Bro..." in the late 90s?) the MASSArtists (self explanatory), the BerkleeBros and BerkleeBabes (again, self explanatory) the ZOOMASS Wasters, Emmanuel Evangelists, LesbiSimmons and apparently the "13th graders" which it took me WAY too long to figure out was a VERY RUDE name for the kids they figured would end up at the local community college.
Needless to say, I was reminded why I only hung out with band kids. And now I teach band, so I still get to hang out with band kids. WINNING.
YES to everything! Personally, I feel a major downfall of this show is the NAME and the way it was marketed. From the beginning it looked like the show was going to be another "dance" show, thus severely limiting the audience. With a new name and a new marketing campaign advertising what it's actually about, this show could go far!

STANDING OVATION, DC Pinners. STANDING. OVATION.
late to the party on this but another lazy game the children in my life seem to enjoy: taking small objects off the floor/table (puzzle pieces, cards, etc.) and stacking them in my outstretched hand. when all the pieces are in my hand i dramatically flip my hand over and dump them out. repeat X 100. seriously, hours of toddler entertainment.
@Ellie Are you ME? I, too, am equally as obsessive about my "house clothes." Just last night, before bed, I changed from one pair of black yoga pants to a different pair of black yoga pants in which to sleep. SO, who is relatively new, just looked on strangely. But when I got into bed he just kissed my forehead, bless his heart.
but...but... I thought FOR SURE "Everything is Embarrassing" by Sky Ferreira was basically The Hairpin anthem of 2012?
@Faintly Macabre I have sight/sound synesthesia as well, I don't typically encounter many others as it seems the number/word/letter color people are more prevalent, or at least more prominent on the internet. I TOTALLY know what you mean about music, there are some songs I CANNOT listen to while driving as the visuals get in the way of concentrating on the road!
@dotcommie Hair on the walls! My most disgusting habit, by far. I used to write messages to my brother when we shared a bathroom, he was not amused. Currently, my shower is completely enclosed by a curtain so I have not hair-doodled in FAR too long.
@maevemealone we called our version of your "Tea Plus" "Tea Surprise" because, well, SURPRISE YOU'RE DRUNK.
