*This had a raunchy pin-up (for all the Jane lovers, not so raunchy with Poncho's facial hair and testicle seperation, but Santo was very buff), I have misplaced it. My Scrapbook is in official disarray so it might turn-up (for all those who wanted it printed on their pj's, underpants, etc.), and when it does, I will post. Never fear.

*Don't ask me why Jane is holding rubber johnnys, it was long ago and I have forgotten. There is also no need to ask me why I have kept evidence that Rob was in the TV Week crossword, I would have thought it was patently clear by now that I am a saddo (or just chuffed that he had finally attained that level of fame). And I think it's worth mentioning that I had a 'pitsuit' too, flared and delightful.

Thankyou very much to William Grimbling for patching this article together. Fine Work.

Here's an article I wrote for my school newspaper in 1993 when I was 16. I laid it out, too :) Yes, I did stick the devil ears on Judith at the time and added a monobrow on Jason. Note 'Sitch not Stitch' and 'Where's Wally'.
There were so many delays with the newspaper that I was sure they'd all aged a year since I originally wrote the article and needed to write their new ages in with pen!
Ah, pre Quark/InDesign days.

Excellent stuff for 16, Kim. Now I know what I should have been doing instead of playing endless rounds of K-Tel Superstar (without the 45, it was lost, which made it so much crapper) and drinking galleons of Raro. Although come it think of it, no. Our magazine attracted some pretty creepy chicky babes.

It did have my original name on it, but when I photocopied it and stuck it in a scrapbook I used my 'cool' non de plume :)

Another article in the newspaper included 2 pages on the death of River Phoenix. Our journalism class was relatively normal I think* - it was just a fun way to spend three periods a week!

*Well, the teacher was the oddest part of the whole class.

Ooh, no way were we cool enough to have a journalism class. We only had the annual that was thrown at you at the end of the year and was put together by the complete set of nuffers. There would always be the obilgatory thankyous to Mr E. Cole Turney for using pictures from Coles Funny Picture Book No.1. Oh well, at least it wasn't frigging magic eye.

River Phoenix, God I still remember that. Waking up from muck-up day covered in flour and egg, to that heart break. Oh, I love that movie Dogfight, must watch it again.

What the hell is wrong with Scrabulous??!
