So, when I was a wee couch potato (tiny spud!  on a sofa!), I was out-of-my-head obsessed with this Canadian teen soap on Nickelodeon called Fifteen.  This show had everything: Romance!  Drama!  A baby Ryan Reynolds! There was a bad boy named Dylan who played guitar and wore leather jackets!  And a breathy, blonde girl named Ashley, whose style and shy charm I was dying, just dying, to emulate.  About a year ago, my friend Jade and I ordered DVDs of the show off ebay, which turned out to be, both, disappointing and great: poor quality VHS to DVD transfers… but!  complete with early 90s cereal and toy commercials!  Eeeee. Anyways, this morning I discovered the show is suddenly, finally, available for download on iTunes.  So!  In honor of Fifteen‘s 2010 release — and for those of you just itching to see what the fuss is all about — a treat:

Oh, and!  Today I’m giving away free stuff!  Chloe & Ant , congrats!  You’re getting signed paperback copies of Nothing Like You!

Exclamation point.
