Each week we offer a profile of an outsideleft reader. This is purely voluntary and as they used to say about dating Chris Evert, the line is long, but it moves pretty fast... So, c'mon, whore yourself a little for our entertainment...


Name:
Ann (left) & Jamie (right) - we're roommates at the Cal State Sacramento dorms

Age: We're both 20
Hometown: Sacramento, CA
Something About It: There's nothing really special about Sacramento, we have a bad traffic problem just like every other major city and the heat during the summer sucks balls. Lots of modern-day hippies too.
Transport: Neither of us have cars - we us bikes to get around campus
What do you do for money: We both work at a huge corporate bookshop chain about a mile away from campus.
Preferred Musicians/Music: The Ramones, NOFX, Thursday, AFI, Glassjaw, At the Drive-in, etc.
Likes: Sneaking into shows, beer (free is possible), free magazines from work, basically anything free - we're poor students.
Dislikes: School, the higher-ups, people with cars (more jealousy than dislike), the summer heat around here, our governor, Goths, all of the girls who wear patchouli oil around here instead of deodorant.
Most embarrassing moment: When I walked out of one of the restrooms on campus and the hem of my skirt got tucked into the back of my underwear. I must have walked around the crowded campus like that for about 30 minutes. (Jamie)
