"Bursting's Better Than Dying"

Guilty Pleasure of the 90's: After-school Canadian show "Ready or Not", with friends Amanda Zimmerman and Busy Ramone toughing out the struggles of being a pre-teen!

Overcome with nostalgia lately, I've been watching episodes on Youtube. "Model Perfect" is a great episode that deals with girls and dieting, the dangers of starvation and the powerful effect our mother's have on our views of ourselves. Reminds me of a quote by Naomi Wolf:

“A Mother Who Radiates Self-Acceptance Actually Vaccinates Her Daughter Against Low Self-Esteem.”

You, too, can watch the episode "Model Perfect" on Youtube:
