things around town

Over the last few months, I have had suspicions that the following ill-conceived items are "coming back" -- and now that there is a good sample size out and about on the streets, I can confirm the reappearance of:
- Skeleton-ts (and hoodies and shoes...did they re-release Donnie Darko and not tell me?).
- Roller blades! I know it's Vancouver, but I haven't seen this many rollerbladers so far from the Seawall in all my time here -- or maybe it's because I've moved to the Drive? And they've just always avoided Main Street because of the hills. I've also noticed that they've laid off the futuristic-sporty-robot-boots look in favour of a lower-profile look -- to resemble old school ice skates, or leather high-tops. Nice re-branding job, rollerblade people.
