Re: bag of jellybeans?!?
The bag of jellybeans was the costume my mom made for me in 6th grade. It was pretty cool, at least I thought so at the time. It involved purple tights, a purple leotard and a big clear bag that had holes for the arms and legs and it was tied around my neck. Inside the bag, we stuck about a hundred little balloons. I thought I was so cool.

During the annual halloween terror parade at my elementary school, however, I became the favorite target for all the dumb boys. I got pushed over and poked and hassled until most of the balloons were popped and my knees were skinned.

Re: bag of jellybeans?!?
Sixth grade? And you were wearing balloons? Well, no wonder.

I once, for the anniversary of Boy Scouts, in fifth grade, per the suggestion of Boy's Life magazine, wore my uniform to school. Cue cruel laughtrack.

Re: bag of jellybeans?!?
Oh man, I can totally empathize. When I was a girl scout, my meetings were immediately after school in the cafeteria. My mom insisted that I wear my uniform to school every week and wouldn't buy me the "cool" looking uniform, either. It was the cheapest piece of green material on the planet, and I was the biggest dork on the planet. A humbling experience!

Why do I get this strange feeling that everyone on Livejournal has one of those stories?

> Book of Love opening for Depeche Mode in Oakland.

what year was that? I was at that concert at the Henry J. Kaiser convention center show in the mid 80's.

Yeah that was the same exact one I was at, with my mom. I was really cool, huh.
