“This is me back in 93 at the Brantford Skating Carnival. The show was beauty and the beast, and i was a piece of cutlery (a spoon). I had to wear a horrible white unitard, and everyone said i looked like a toilet seat. The worst part is when we were on the ice, it glowed in the dark!”

“My younger brother in his ‘awkward yet fabulous’ phase. Please note the following:
1. Western-style shirt with Christmas-star-snowflake ornament….
2. One exposed skate (just to prove that you’re wearing skates?).
3. Indestructible plastic-frame glasses because, of course, the parents were worried about their child breaking the stylish/expensive ones.
4. Gold lamé fabric bringing out the most unsympathetic tones in the ginger kid’s skin and hair.”
