At my elder niece's school, a girl called Lydia seems to be the lynchpin around which 'popularity' orbits. But popularity is a fickle principle, and some may find themselves no longer as popular as they once were, with Lydia and, therefore, with everyone else.
'There's a group of girls at school who used to be popular, but aren't any more,' my niece explained, 'I call them the rejects of Lydia'.
I thought 'The Rejects of Lydia' was probably the best name for a Goth band I've ever heard. I look forward to their first EP.
Happy New Year!
