My sister uses Gnome for her X session.
They are magical creatures that are not seen after 8pm.
Mainly applies to those in college that rather stay in than go out.
Gnome status is acquired after 2 repeated weekends of staying in without a valid excuse.
Valid excuses include dying, exam the next day, and a date( although if the dates continually interfere with going out they are no longer a valid excuse)
Friend B: No I'm staying in
Friend A: umm dude you've stayed in the past 2 weeks and
midterms are over why aren't you going out
Friend B: I'm just not
Friend A: wow you're a total Gnome
