    I have a clique also! I am the beta though(: We have a ginger (Dylan), 2 blonds (Kristen and Claire), a brunette (Massie), and me! (I have dark brown hair and big boobs, Alicia) i think it’s hilarious how it worked out that way, plus my clique read all the books so we know every phrase, plus we use them during school hours! i go to a private school also, and in most classes boys are separated from the girls (Briarwood and OCD). all of my friends have a boyfriend and we actually went on a camping trip (The Pretty Committee Strikes Back) and we have LBRs but we call them the Faux-ies(: thanks for the list of the phrases (reason why i needed them: Claire just came into our group, new girl, so i needed to help her study them so she knew what we were talking about) This is Peri saying I Heart You! <3

    OMG soooo lame! My clique is way above that crap. My besties, Sarah, Jessica, Katherine, Liz, Monique, and I all agree. You need to check your cool-o-meter, cause it’s totally at a record low, or should I say awt aw recawrd low. Seriously, get a life. If I was a loser who took up my life reading the clique and writing down every phrase, I would have no time to control my school. What kind of alpha are u? Oh, wait! I know! L-A-M-E!
