2: Looney Toons were my favorite cartoon characters growing up when I was a child. | Bugs Bunny was my favorite character out of the bunch, just the way he did things and cracked those little jokes on all of those other characters when they weren.t doing something right was hilarious. | Taz was my second favorite out of the bunch even though you couldn't understand a word he said most of the time!!! | And, last but not least, Daffy Duck and Road Runner were the other shows and characters I watched. Daffy was just all- around stupid, and it was always funny watching the coyote blow himself up all the time.
4: Skating has been coming back in for years now, and a lot more people are starting to get in it. I love skating! If I could, I would do it every day, and my dream is to get sponsored by Vanillia Skate Company one of these days! | There are all sorts of different kinds of skating boots out there today. There are quad skate boots (aka jam skating boots) which are used for rythm skating; and, there are also artistic boots which are used for dancing and skating in competion with partners. | Wheels are a big thing to the skating sociaty today. They keep you rolling all night long and the harder the grip on the wheel the better. The two main wheels are the sure grip power plus used for a quad skate and the bone red wheel used for your artistic skate, but you can also buy other wheels if you would choose. | The quad skate (jam skate ) that i prefer to use is a Vanilla Skate boot. It is very comfortable and fits the needs of my skating.
