I cannot condone wearing various items of clothing on body parts for which they were not intended, BUT
Karen Brewer also invented wearing sweaters as pants in the Super Special "Snowbound" and went around singing about her sweater-pants in....I don't know, 1992?
I don't even want to know how smart I could be if I didn't have bits of Baby-sitters Club trivia clogging up my brain. That and every single detail of the American Girl canon.
@Heat Signature I read this sentence three times and I'm still not sure if I'm supposed to raise my hand if my friends do a lot of coke or if they don't.
Like Lohan's career, I really, really wanted this to be better than it was.

@anniemac Waste is kind of crappy, but a sort of romantic Phish song. Also see if he would go for With, which is from a side project by Mike Gordon (Phish's bassist) and Leo Kottke and is pretty great, IMO. I was kind of holding on to that one in hopes that I might one day get married, but I'll cede it to you two, if you'd like.

@anniemac My husband is a huge fan of the metal band Three Inches of Blood, and the singer's voice drives me up the fucking wall. I too, actively dislike their songs. If there is a hell and I end up there, I'd be forced to listen to "Destroy the Orcs" on repeat for eternity. But every once in a while, during a roadtrip or if we're cleaning the apartment or cooking a meal together I'll randomly throw on one of their albums and get such a kick out of watching him sing along, play air guitar, and rock out to it, like all of a sudden this curried turkey salad he's making is SO METAL. It's awesome to see him that goofy/happy all at once.
I would not have survived graduate school without listening to "Front Row" about 4 times a day for 5 straight years.
In fact, the whole of Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie was so integral to my survival that I'm kind of surprised that anyone even still remembers Jagged Little Pill.
My coworker doesn't eat gross things but she's got this big echo-y head so when she's eating something crunchy it sounds like they're demolishing the building.
You're all Erics to me.
Does anyone remember those triplet dolls that came in a pouch? Early to mid-90s? Anyway I got them for Christmas one year and my rural Indiana family was SHOCKED when we opened the box and they were *whisper* "black!!!" I remember being indignant and seven and all like, "I WILL LOVE THESE BABIES NO MATTER WHAT COLOR THEY ARE!" The end.
@anniemac The one time my dad shaved off his beard as an adult (on a bet), my mother lost him in the Whitney Museum.
