hey tgs!

I love YouTube. It keeps me company – as in, sometimes I have it on in the background when I work on this very mag. I listen to things like Claire Saffitz (Bon Appétit) reverse-engineering junk food, or artists challenging each other to draw SpongeBob memes (Buzzfeed, Animator Vs. Cartoonist series). Recently, TG’s Rosie showed me a bunch of TikToks including some she made with her dog Koda. The world of video has so much going on, we had to make the Video Stars issue! With so many faves, it was impossible to fit them all in. XO Claire and Team TG…

totally embarrassing

So alarmed! I was at the shops with my grandma. I went to walk out the door but I didn’t see the sign that said ‘Don’t open the door’. Well, I opened it… Suddenly, the burglar alarm went off!!! Everyone including the shopkeeper stared at me. OMG, it was sooooooo embarrassing. Estelle Got an embarro story to share? Email totalgirl@nextmedia.com.au with the subject line ‘Totally Embarrassing’. It’s snot that gross… I had a runny nose and felt sick but I still went to school. I was sitting with my friends and two boys – who always make people laugh! Out of nowhere, one of them said something really funny and I burst out laughing but I also burst out snot! It went everywhere! They all stopped laughing and said, “Ewww” and looked super grossed…

hall of shame

Wrong answer I was walking up to write something on the board at school, and I farted! It was loud enough for everyone to hear and everybody laughed. I turned BRIGHT red and the teacher let me sit back down. OMG! Anonymous, Dec 2002 Duck, duck, goose! My class went on a field trip to a farm. We were walking past a pond where the mother goose had just laid eggs. The father goose started being really protective and chased me until he bit me on the butt! In front of everyone! Keely, June 2003 Catch this! My friends and I were at the beach throwing sand balls at each other. I threw a sand ball and accidentally hit a random lady in the face and made her sunglasses fly off! OMG, I was so embarrassed! Summer, April…
