More than dust, dead roaches and spiderwebs

In my vain attempt to fit all our crap into an area about a third the size of what we need (and yes Bec I'll quit whinging because I know we have about a bazillion square miles more than you have and all of your offspring are mobile already) I uncovered lots of interesting things. Photos of me with unplucked eyebrows. Dear GOD they made Brooke Shields look like she had pencil lines for brows. I knew this but Mum had basically put the fear of God into me about plucking them. It was only when I was coordinating a national modelling competition (OH THE IRONY) that a professional make-up artist almost gagged on seeing them and pinned me down with tweezers was that social mishap rectified. Then there's the photo of me with Heath Ledger, again due to the model comp and LONG before true fame was even on the horizon. Interestingly, he was LOVELY. Not the prickly, jaded, attitude grouch he is now. Anyway. I found this, and thought for fun it might be interesting to see if any of it has changed.
