5) Thanks to Ink Erasers, your books being full of weird furry holes

And Big Brovaz’ Nu Flow skipping when your bus hit a speed bump.

8) Saying goodbye to your mates at the end of the day only to speak to them approximately 20 minutes later on MSN

Until your dad needed the phone line, anyway.

9) Spending your time before dinner working out the most flattering webcam angles

Essential when trying to impress your MSN crush.

Colour? Glitter? Smelly? And what was the point of the yellow one when you only ever used white paper?

11) Constantly rolling up your skirt to impress the sixth form boys

…and getting so annoyed when it rolled back down.
