...when your math teacher asks your mother to write down her name, her daughter's name, and the first thing that comes to mind about her daughter at "Back-to-School Night" and your mom writes down "she LOVES the Beatles." Yeah, my mom knows me very well indeeda-hard-days-night-john-1

"Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that." "What happens to them?" insisted Milo. "Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else," said Alec thoughtfully, "and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars." –The Phantom Tollbooth

... When you always use the names 'George' and 'Paul' in your essays. And when the teacher shows it to the whole class, your friends look at you and sigh, "I should have known. The Beatles again." 

... When your mom has a parent-teacher meeting with your form teacher and replies this when asked what my interests are "She likes the 1960s. And she LOVES the Beatles." a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Just like Seaglass eyes.

... When your friends take your Beatle books and start telling you which Beatle is which. They can even tell who is who from the back view. I'm so proud. I've taught them well. They even know that Paul is the most good looking a-hard-days-night-paul-8

Wow. Our moms think alike. On a side note: you've got amazing friends! I'm jealous. One of my best friends has seen countless Beatles books, magazines, photos, etc and she STILL can't tell which is which. AND she thinks they're "all ugly." No. Just, no.a-hard-days-night-john-7

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Ahaha, some of them don't even like the Beatles. But the funny thing is, whenever they go to a store and see Beatles stuff, they report it to me. The other day my friend texted me to tell me that there were Beatle shirts at H&M. And another texted me to tell me that she found a load of Beatle books at the library. What's funny is that even when they see CD albums, they'll come to me the next day in school to tell me even though they know you can see them anywhere. 

Of course, I have some friends who say that the Beatles are ugly and make fun of them, but I just laugh, really. 

Oh wait, your best friend is a Beatles' fan and doesn't know who is who? ZOMGa-hard-days-night-paul-2

You skim thru the bbc iplayer to hear bbc recordings which are already available on Live At The BBC. For some reason its more enjoyable at times to hear the music outside of how you would choose.

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

no. my best friend, unfortunately, doesn't like them. AND doesn't know who is who. ALL my friends say they're ugly and make fun of them, particularly John cause they know I like him best. Sometimes my friends really get me down...paul-mccartney

No, I have tons of Beatles stuff. I make her look at it. I'm trying to educate her…it's for her own good! I've actually spent the last few days spamming her email with pictures of them in an effort to get her to admit at least one of them is attractive. Hopefully my devious plot will succeed…blue-meanie….knowing her, though, probably not. She is VERY stubborn.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Well, I wouldn't force my friends to do anything, but if I did that, I would probably laugh my head off. 

Maybe I'm just that sort of person a-hard-days-night-john-7

... When you can not only air guitar to all their songs, but air bass, air drum, air violin, air mellotron etc.

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

That's me.

 

Anyway ...........you think Kansas' ''Carry on Wayward Son'' is hardcore, but prefer Abbey Road, Help, Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper (The Four Seasons, AB: Summer, H!: Spring, RB: Autumn & Sgt Pepper: Winter (I think it is beacause of the time they recorded it)).

...your parents have a dinner party for people from church, and you end up in a corner ranting about what a nut Heather Mills is with some lady you just met.

...you are making arguments for why a fictional character should receive an award, and one of the reasons is that the character often ran into people who were equipped with a gun.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Um, sure. Could you please explain what on earth you mean?
