Retail therapy leads to buyers remorse which leads to more retail therapy. Its a visicous cycle I tell you. Basically the lessoned to be learned is SAVE YOUR RECEIPTS. Remember them Diesel pants I blogged about the other day [well like a couple months ago]? I wasn't really feeling them anymore, and as a result I returned them. And as a further result, I bought another pair. Witness the cycle. But I'm satisfied with this pair. Ain't it funny how its called "a pair of jeans," or "a pair of scissors," or "a pair of boobs"...I mean, they can't be singular yeah?

And you know that black/white Polo pictured below? So I got my extra medium, and it fit waaay too young on me, like my nipples couldn't breathe. So I checked the site looking if they had an L, and of course they sold out. I had to return it to the Polo store and was SOL of the shipping costs. So I ended up paying like $80 for a polo shirt and some swimming trunks, which is soooo not a deal at all. I felt violated. And then a week later, I peep the site again, and of course they have an L available. Talk about a double whammy yo.

And I haven't bought a pair of non-bowling or non-dress kicks since that Jordan IV release. That's almost been 2 whole months! You think its a coincidence I didn't get any kicks and not blogged the past month? I think not. Honestly this has been my biggest drought since I don't know when. You should see my "clothing: shoes" summary in Microsoft Money. Or maybe not haha. Hmmm, maybe that's why I slowed down huh? But since I didn't any kicks, I had to buy something! Alas, I got a new used driver. Too bad I had it for like 2 weeks and still haven't tested it out yet, so if anyone wants to go to the range hollla hollla hollla [in a John Legend voice.] I guess the iPizzle will have to wait another month. Or maybe I just wasn't meant to get one? Oh well, that's just more loot to waste in Vega$.

Sorry if it sounds like I'm crying too much. Please pass the e-tissue.


Movie Review:
Wedding Crashers

So the other day, I went on a mandate (get it? Man-Date? ha!) with Roland to peep this movie. Of course we sat a seat apart and shared no popcorn, but unfortunately this couple wanted to sit together so we obliged and ended up sitting next to each other. Luckily we kept the armrest down so there wouldn't be any physical contact. Also my posture was leaning towards the opposite side of him, just so he wouldn't get any ideas. Okay now that we have that established, let's discuss the film. 3 words: Hil-Lar-Rious! Movie was beyond funny. I *heart* Vince Vaughn [Swingers, Zoolander, Old School, etc] and this flick is comparable to that. Laughs were constant throughout the film, and its running time was almost 2 hours! LOL @ the dinner table scene. LOL @ the bedroom scene. LOL @ the football field scene. LOL @ the whole damn movie. But this isn't just a raunchy comedy about dudes doing whatever to get a piece of arse, there also is a love story involved. It might even qualify as a chick flick! Oh yeah, Rachel McAdams is a new entry on the top 25 list.

4.5 bridesmaids out of 5.


Confessions of a Sneakerhead, part 300:

So those in The Know know that I've been bowling almost religiously each Wednesday for the past few months. And anyone who's been to a bowling alley knows the shoes there are horrendous. I've been reluctantly renting these kicks just for the time being [plus its only a buck.] Wait, I've already told this story to Cici [wow 3 straights mentions for you - it must be your lucky day!], so I'ma cut and paste it from an email correspondence:

as far as shoes, my friends didn't think i'd get a pair since nike doesn't make any. they have like dexter, brunswick, etc...all these un-hip kicks. and u know i can't actually buy them.

so what's reeg to do? actually i knew nike made bowling shoes back in the day. so where else do i look but ebay of course! its like virtually impossible to find a brand new pair of bowling kicks, so i settled for a like-new pair. all i know is that i'll have the hottest kicks @ the alley, even though they're from 1984! i'll just clean them up (shoe tip: magic eraser works wonders.)

The story isn't finished! So I've had them in my bag, waiting to lace them up. Suspense was brewing amongst my bowling buddies, but they knew I had some hot ones. Alas, I put them on and felt like Lil Bow Wow in Be Like Mike when he found those magic shoes! [okay not really, but you get the point.] Anyway, I was first to bowl, and I bowled a strike in the first frame! However I should've quit after that moment since my next strike came like 2 games after haha. =(

So I took a lil hiatus if you didn't realize. What better way to come back than fill out a survery that I was tagged? The plan is go back to my normal blogging schedule, but we'll see about that...

From Miss Parco:

01. If you woke up tomorrow morning and you were the opposite gender, what would be the first thing you'd do?
hit the snooze button, skratch my genitalia, and decide what shoes to wear. Wow, I wouldn’t do anything different!

02. If you could be invisible for a whole day, what would you do?
I’d walk around nekkid and try to scare people jokingly. Not because I don’t have clothes, since they can’t see me anyway, but just in jest. Or i'd be like Robin Hood, and rob from the rich and give to the poor.

03. If you could completely get rid of one fashion trend that you personally don't like, what would it be?
ummm….even if there are some trends not to my liking, it doesn’t bug me. Oh yeah, I’d completely obliterate all the fake kicks floating around.

04. If you could dye your hair ANY color, what color would you choose?
red, since its my fav color.

05. If you could look like any celebrity, who would you choose and why?
hmmm…maybe cash warren, so jessica alba could confuse us and think she’s dating me instead of him. Or maybe even jessica alba, so I can feel pretty oh so pretty. Or Brad Pitt, so I can have a gazillion girls on my jock.

06. If you could spend one hour with ANYONE, (alive or dead) who would it be, and why?
wow the hardest ?tion so far. Hmmm, probably Jesus, so I could say to people, “Hey I kicked it with my homie Jesus the other day.” [pronounced JEE-zus, not HEY-Zeus] That would make for interesting conversation. Plus I’d ask him if that Da Vinci Code stuff was true or not.

07. If you won a million dollars in the lottery, what would you do with the money?
after taxes you’ll have probably $587,486.78 if you take the lump sum [thanks Professor Loster for that tidbit]. So with that amount, I’d make my folks retire and have them travel where ever they please. I’d break off my siblings some $krilla. Honestly I’ll think about getting a whip, but I have this fascination of being hecka filthy rich and pushing the same car as I do now. Insurance for nice rides is bananas yo.

08. If you could tell one person ANYTHING, what would it be, and who would it be?
I’ll take the 5th on this question. ;-)

09. If you saw your favorite celebrity in the street, what would be your first reaction?
hmmm I don’t even know who my fav celebrity is. It’ll be either “hey tiger, lets hit the links!” or “hey Nick, let’s grab a beer and watch a game” or “hey Lana, superman ain’t got nothing on me”

10. If you could change your first name to anything you wanted, what would you change it to?
I’d change it to Reegsta, since people can’t mispronounce that.

11. What's one feature of your appearance that you absolutely like?
physical appearance? Hmmm, my ears, since I don’t see anything wrong with them.

12. If you were told today that you had only a month to live, what would be all the things you would do, or say before you died?
I’d try to fornicate as much as possible to keep my legacy alive through my offspring. And wear all my kicks I haven’t yet rocked.

13. If you could change any part of your appearance, what would it be?
I’d make myself taller.

14. If you had your own line of cosmetics, what would you call it, and what kind of products would you make?
Pimp-Zap. It would zap away pimples on contact.

15. If you had your own line of underwear, how would you design it?
hmmm, the color would be nude, so it appears that you’re not wearing anything, similar to britney’s pants during the MTV awards a few years back. And I’d make it a wicker material, like they have for socks, for those swamp-a$$ days.

16. If you could have one super power, what would it be?
I’d wanna swim. Or teleport so I can be anywhere in an instant.

17. If you had the choice would you rather be Marilyn Monroe for a day, or Madonna?
Madonna, since she’s still alive and all. Plus she lives in England, and I've always wanted to visit there.

18. Do you believe your dreams have significance?
oh most definitely, otherwise you wouldn’t have them

19. Total number of films I own on DVD/video:
like 30, and none were purchased for more than $10!

20. The last film I bought:
Harold & Kumar go the White Castle – the unedited version [for $10!]

21. Last film I watched at home:
The Girl Next Door. Or Do the Right Thing.

22. 6 films I watch a lot or mean a lot to me:
Spaceballs, it’s a wonderful life, menace ii society, stand by me, happy gilmore…these really don’t have no meaning, I just enjoy watching them

23. Tag 5 people and have them answer these questions on their blog:
I think I’ll pass on this ?tion…
