Oh my god, its 1999! Unplug the computer and fear for the worst!
Renfrew Lions Club, year 2. Front row, starting at the left: Me, Lindsey, Riley, Rebecca and her super long hair.
Elyse, Rebecca and I made a poster in French about Scotland. It was a school thing, not just a nerd project. It was really cool back then. What a lame poster. LOL
As part of another assignment, which involved interviewing old people and then returning later to present our finding to those same old people, Kate and I rocked the bottom left picture in the newspaper. Our lady liked figure skating when she was younger, and had a nicely decorated walker.
My second appearance in the newspaper that year came when I schooled the rest of the kids in the Royal Canadian Legion Spelling Bee. Jodie had won the year before, and I knew I could beat her, so I signed up and kicked her ass. That's the year that Mando lost on the word "alien" which she totally should have known, as an X-Files buff. [HAH I said Mando is buff!] After this year, I went on to win the next 2 years as well, because I dominate.
In the summer, we took a fancy family vacation to Toronto which involved a side trip to Sudbury, where we went down in a nickel mine.
We also saw the big nickel. So much nickel! [well, its made of wood. whatever.]
This was the first year that our soccer league went all hockey and decided to have team photos. I'm in the back left. As a special treat, Danielle is totally in the front row on the right of the soccer ball. This may be my only picture of her even though I've known her for so many years!
I swear to god, sometime after Grade 7, I'll kick the habit of biting my lower lip in pictures. I promise.
This class picture is messed up. Short little Elyse is on the end of the second row and I'm front and center, looking like a dork [-1000 points for tearaway pants] with Rebecca to my right.
I made a third appearance in the newspaper that year [slow news year!] because I was a shepherd in the school Christmas play. Nice bath robe. I totally remember the songs from those plays. In that one, Alex had a solo that involved him singing "I'm not getting on that camel" ... it wasn't even my song, but we rehearsed so much, I'll never forget the lyrics.
