Do you remember the MTV show “Room Raiders?” Well, a girl’s brain works like that all the time — meaning, when we see your bedroom for the first time we’re looking around with our fingers crossed, desperately hoping we won’t find anything, you know…weird.

1. Pajama pants that are anything other than plaid. (Especially ones with baseballs, smiley faces, scrabble tiles, food items, clouds, or cats.)
2. Lame stolen street signs
3. Old bowl of Mac N’Cheese
4. Black lights.
5. Gilmore Girls on DVD
6. Condom wrappers/used condoms
7. Glade candles everywhere.
8. Large stuffed animals, emphasis on the plural.
9. Pictures of ex-girlfriend on display.
