It's a trumpet, and a piccolo, and a flute. Oh, and yes, then behind all 3 of them was a sousaphone. <3 Rainbow City Band!

All I know is that I saw her perform at a show in February and she was fucking hilarious. And I usually hate drag.

Ummm, maybe cause Jimmy John's and Chipotle are delicious, and Dunkin Donuts is 1000x better than Starbucks. Yeah, come at me bro.

@3 and @29 NAILED IT. I spent the last year in Costa Rica, and everyone lives with their moms. I went home with a guy once with a 2 bedroom all to himself and I asked him like 14 times if he was sure if his mom didn't live there. When it was proven that she did not, I tried to put a ring on it SO FAST. Alas, I am back in los Estados Unidos without a Latino husband on my arm.

Not sad at all. I worked at Marketime for a year and literally never ate there because most of the people who did would get sick. It was the place where all the junkies would go when they did something crazy at the store and we had to kick them out. Also, I think we all know what pay phones are used for nowadays, so that didn't exactly draw in the winners either.

@3 - disagree. Guys who are aggressive might know they are being harassers and could just be assholes. Guys who say things like "smile!" or "you got some pretty toes" or "hola guapa" while touching your arm (all three of these have happened to me recently) probably don't have any idea. Because most of the time when I have called them out on it, they look shocked.

Holy shit! I know these guys! I think I still have a sort of ska/reggae CD Austin made back in high school. Represent, kids, do Snohomish proud.
