I was on a closed campus for high school. Brought my lunch most days because the school menu was vegetarian and... some of the veggie cold cuts have the texture of shoe leather...

I was bad. I skipped almost all of 7th and 8th grade. By 8th grade I would just take my cello to orchestra class and skip the rest of the day. I actually, totally honestly, never went to a class other than orchestra through all of 8th grade!

Bunking off sounds dirty! We just called it skipping. Actually, upon my request, my mother just mailed me my old coat from high school. It's a gorgeous vintage suede jacket from the late 60s or early 70s, with incredible, long fringe detail that I found in a thrift store when I was 15 for $20 (a consignment shop here in NYC would sell it for $200-300). We called it my hippie coat. Anyway, I got it in the mail the other day and wore it out, and when I stuck my hands in the pockets I found ticket stubs for Billy Elliot and a hall pass to report to the principal's office.

Re: Confessions: You do it and you know it is bad

When I was going to college in Pensacola I had an hour or so between classes, so I'd sit outside and read. One day i heard a loud bang and felt a pressure wave and I just about lost it. Took me a while to calm down. Some dickwad with a quarter stick tossed it in the air. Heard him bragging about it to a friend later on that day and I ended up beating both of them to a pulp.

When I was in college, I went home when I could. Advantage of living about two blocks from campus.

^The first Starbucks is in Pike Place Market, though most Seattleites --not Seattllianites -- just call it the Public Market. The Starbucks is on the upper level, though as far as I know they don't sell drinks and never have, just beans. The Market's a fun place to go. You can get the best molasses cookie you've ever had in your life there.

^Hahaha! I've actually been through Bothell pretty recently, and it's hardly recognizable! My sisters and dad all still live in Seattle, so I'm out that way every year. And my mom works in Woodenville! At Little Bit, do you know it? She lives just outside Duval in the Cascade foothills.
I think I've seen it. But I know the Woodinville Target quite well, as well as Molbaks and the Ezells Chicken. I'll look for Little Bit.
I'm a Kirkland girl, myself, though.

And MLB, if you've never been to Pike Place... there's so much there. Besides Starbucks.
Greatness! Thanks for the tips. The day I fly in, there's no game, so I'll have plenty of time to check this out.

We called it Cabbage Night in my part of NJ, or in my time.

One CN when I was in college, a couple of us painted some of the fire hydrants on campus. We were trying to paint little people, but, in retrospect, they probably looked more like robots.

There are many hydrants.

And they have a plan.

Did you live in South Jersey? Never heard it called that.

I went there about 10 years ago and it was awesome. Very wacky, eclectic sort of place. And they throw fish!

^ Awesome! I will definitely have to check that out. Fortunately it's not too far from my hotel.

Nope, Bergen County. Maybe it's more a generational thing.
