For those of you who haven't gotten the memo,

a new House of Blues opened in Boston recently. FM and DKM are playing there in March. Many other cool shows to be had in the next few months.

Just so you all know. Now, back to your regularly scheduled maniacal packing and running around like a crazy person.

I stumbled upon this:

dork (plural dorks)

1. (vulgar, slang) A penis.
2. (US, pejorative, slang) A quirky, silly and/or stupid, socially inept person, or one who is out of touch with contemporary trends. Often confused with nerd and geek, but does not imply the same intelligence level.
3. (US, slang, dated) A contraction for ‘door key’ child. The term for a boy or girl who is (or was) left alone for long periods, locking themselves inside with little to do, isolated, possibly poor, learning little, while a single parent (or both parents) work or are away. Origin: probably late 1930s or early 1940s US. Compare with the more neutral sounding term ‘latch-key children’ popular with media and professionals in the 1980s.



I was totally a door key child. Now, apparently, I have grown into a dorky adult.
