… not when there’s a sock yarn contest going on!
crafty fox (which i came across from stariel’s blog) is having a contest entitled “remember when i loved…”. the idea is that we ‘fess up to our most embarrassing childhood crushes, including the best (and by that i mean so-good-it’s-the-worst-thing-you’ve-ever-seen) picture you can find of your ex-crush from a google image search. so here i go…
…remember when i loved… corey feldman? (i know. let us never mention this again.). i was about 7 or 8, totally geeky (only a couple of years away from the glasses/braces/slightly chubby combo that ensures you get no dates until you’re at least 16). i loved books more than anything, and always got picked last for team sports in gym class. i also had a big crush on a boy at my school (who shall remain nameless, in case he someday googles his own name & this blog comes up!) – mainly, because he had the corey feldman hair. the best (worst) picture i could find:
yikes.* (that’s got to be embarrassing enough to win).
i also had a brief thing for george michael, once the corey feldman phase passed, but let’s not even go there – clearly, i didn’t know about the whole gayness thing yet (his, or indeed mine, as it turned out).
i still like leather jackets, though.
