Oh, hey! I took about a week off from posting because I ran out of storage space here on my site. I use WordPress, and I had filled up my Personal plan to the limit. I thought I was on Premium already and thought I couldn’t afford the next upgrade. Turns out I only had Personal, so now I’ve upgraded to Premium, and hope to have a few more years of doing this with y’all! I mean, I have like 14 more seasons to cover! Let’s hope Premium gets me through that!

Anyway, I’ve got the rando roundup for you today. First is the Tankini Tramp, who reminds me of Sara Paxton. Then is this group shot of the Grade 8s (I know, they’re older now) which is undeniably awesome. Ya know, I tend not to question these pants. Ever. Because those were the only pants I knew at the time and still feel like “normal” pants to me, even as trends changed. But like… objectively… do they look.. BAD?! Ill-fitting, even? Unflattering? Well, even if they do, skinny jeans are MUCH worse.

I had to include this mannequin shot because you can see the low-riseness of the pants, the tightness of the shirt, and that grommet belt, oof. Also at the mall, Manny is looking at this girl wearing a low-rise mini skirt, and the girl is also wearing the wig that Manny tries on… yeaaaah y’all can’t get anything past me!! I’m onto your secrets! Also at the mall is this gorgeous blonde with fillers and heavy makeup, also a miniskirt. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I still love and always have loved that golden Playboy blonde color that’s currently “out”. It’ll be back, just you watch.

Why do all the adults wear 70s-inspired clothes? Huge collars and bell sleeves? Does the wardrobe dept do that on purpose to show they’re from a different generation? Anyway, this rude receptionist for Bernice wears a terribly uncomfortably looking tweed blazer over a collar that reaches the ends of her shoulders. Gross.

Back at school, we see an assortment of cross-body bags and messenger bags. At the hot-girls-only party, Tankini Tramp Sara Paxton is apparently friends with Emma now, and her bra straps are hangin out – a favorite look! And finally.. the vodka guy is kinda gross, isn’t he?

Here’s where I round up the random and group photos from the episode. First are a couple shots of Spirit Squad, in their white tennies and Degrassi attire. Next is a group shot in the hallway featuring many sets of belted, low-rise jeans. Then is Kevin Smith’s insufferable music guy acting coked out in a leather jacket. This next shot, just a random girl at the dance – tell me that’s not Rochelle. “Hey Rochelle, wanna have lunch?” Holly J asks this girl in the hallway much later on and she smiles all big. This girl looks like Rochelle. Maybe there’s too much time between this episode and that future one, but I’m going to try to keep an eye out. And finally is an overhead shot at the dance, of these little youngsters enjoying themselves.

Time for the randos and miscellaneous captures from the episode! First are these baggily-clad ballers outside the hospital. Then is this cutie trying to get with Emma. Apparently she only has eyes for Jay or whatever… ok. He wears a breezy longsleeve with baggy jeans. I also have another shot of the ravine, which is kinda funny. Lanterns, guitars, litter, cool cars, and beer. How reckless! Next is the poor receptionist at the hospital who the boys have tricked into thinking her life is in danger, nice. Then it’s the STD/STI lady wearing a red sweater and slacks. God look at Emma’s posture! Jay needs to give her another massage. Finally, at the concert venue – ah who am I kidding – this is just a bar! We see baggy clothes and chains. We see this huge guy in a jean jacket with a popped collar and his hair in liberty spikes! And behind Jimmy is this goth guy wearing a mech shirt, and a girl in a plaid skirt.

Time for the randoms! First is a shot on the front steps. We see a few things – cross body bags, layers on laters, and baggy silhouettes. Then a group shot of yoga class, (which everyone is doing wrong,) way before everyone wore skin-tight leggings. Then at the bar we see a bouncer and a bartender in very plain clothes but I included them anyway. Is this the same bouncer at the Kevin Smith party?? Next is the recording studio people, also dressed boringly except for those cool classes.
