1. What do you consider a bad boy?

2. Do you change your bedding for the different seasons?

3. Do you/have you ever smoked cigarettes?

When is the last time you saw a dorm room?

"Boys, my dears. Boys ... lol" -------- She keeps the boyfriend's house pretty nice too actually and she shares her own house with 4 boys.

I think Rockwell is a perfectly competent, albeit sentimental, illustrator.  I don't think that, as an artist, he's in the same league as Leonardo.  Your mentioning them together was a bit jarring.

Adding on to that--they weren't any worse than the dorms, IME. I spent so much time there that my mother started calling me there in the mornings instead of my own room...I don't think my experience is unique.

My sorority house had a cleaning service. So our common areas were spotless. The condition of the rooms varied according to the occupants, but the rooms are always decorated beautifully. 

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

I don't get the either/or either.  Our quilt is very lovely and a wonderful hand made decoration, with a lot of history involved.

Lol, I take it you don't like Norman Rockwell's art bord....  Why?   

I met Nancy Noel when we lived in Indy, Her art is pretty unique too.

Well newer as in closer to now than the Renaissance period of art, it could be classified as "newer", not new but newer.

"My college-age son is not in a fraternity," -------- We were just talking about that over dinner. Dh went to a fairly fancy college, and was tapped for a fancy fraternity. The guy who made the invite explained that dh had to bow to the older boys as part of the initiation. Dh declined the invitation for that reason, lol.

I use the quilt/blanket/comforter at night, as cover (you know, what it was made for) when sleeping (as weather appropriate).  Although I do spend a lot of time on top of my bed - not sleeping - when it is made. It would be uncomfortable (lumpy, etc) to sit on unmade.

That's great. I have a couch and chairs in my home to sit on lol.

Why does it remind you of a college student, is that what you had when you were in college? Funny though, I have seen a lot of pictures of college dorm rooms (friends who have kids in college) and they all have comforters on their bed...
