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?

I suppose in terms of the overall age of art, Rockwell is "new".   But that's also like saying Chubby Checker or the Beatles are new music.

Perhaps my memory is hazy, but I really don't remember the boys' rooms being awful. Now the common living areas on the morning after a party? AWFUL. But their rooms? They really weren't bad. But I may feel differently when it is my kids--my cleanliness standards have evolved over the last two decades...

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Here is a page with a small slideshow (including interiors) of a house quite similar to some of the ones I knew as a child: http://www.arkark.dk/building.aspx?buildingid=1890

No surprise.  My friend's ds is in a frat boy and he made it less than one semester at the house b/c the place was always a dump and the kid is a neat freak!  I think messy college kids (or whatever spring called it) is a good generality.  My brother was a frat boy and I remember visiting him in Columbus a few times, Utter disaster, Lol.  I still think that's pretty common.

My college-age son is not in a fraternity, but his bedroom is an utter disaster.  They keep the downstairs of the apartment pretty clean, but the few times I have been in his bedroom I was thinking I should have a haz-mat suit.  I've never seen his bathroom.  I don't want to.

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.

As that I'm married to one, I can. Their idea of decor may not be my taste (tends toward beer girl posters and neon beer signs), but they did decorate in their own way. And DH had a quilt on his bed. I spent a fair amount of time at his frat house as a "little sister" and I don't recall any rooms as Spring described them. 

I'm going to guess I'm the only woman on the board who was IN a frat house last weekend. Popped by DH's for a few w/a friend to stroll down memory lane...

<<It is perfect for us. Quite honestly, it is one of the smaller floor plans in my neighborhood, so it doesn't feel large to me. My father's home has a similar footprint and size (minus the finished basement) and he lives alone. Since we're a family of four w/a dog the size of a small human, it doesn't seem too big. At all.>>

Sometimes our house feels way too small but then I have basically 4 adult size people living in the space and it's an old house that is not really designed well at times.  I love the house just, wish I had a different floor plan now and again, lol.

Norman Rockwell is newer art and his work falls under modern art (1945-present). I trust my textbook and professor on this one.
