Throwback Jerseys

nuggets_uniform_jlnuggets_uniformJL

I don’t know about everyone else but I am NOT a fan of the new Denver Nuggets throwback jerseys.

It screams a little too 80’s for me. I mean they DID just bring back the jersey in just another more vibrant color. Here is the 1985 version.

There have been white ones, blue ones, purple ones, black ones and now they’re just in yellow.

And here are the Nike Air Force III’s that go with the jersey. (Released back in 2008).

Yes, they were designed with the Denver Nuggets throwback jersey in mind. Somehow I don’t think I could walk down the street without feeling absolutely self conscious and stupid with these shoes on but to each their own.

The use of multiple blue tones in combination with the stripe combinations down the shorts makes it look quite a bit awkward.

And when you add the matching shoes it just makes them look like huge crayons running down the court. They’d be a combination of McDonald’s puke yellow and Periwinkle fever.

All the jerseys that have been coming out this year have been horrendous. And it’s not just the Denver Nuggets but teams such as the OKC Thunder and the Charlotte Bobcats have had similar design malfunctions.

What was wrong with the old simple Nuggets jersey?

And I don’t really care for the ABA Hardwood Jerseys either…

Looks like a design mix between a baseball uniform and a hockey jersey. It’s pretty funny that they put a pick with a gold nugget on there.

Why the numbers are different colors and what that blue background that looks like a space orbit is doing behind the pick and the logo, I have no idea.

I have enough rainbow going on with my own school colors, I don’t think I want it on an official NBA jersey… but I guess I got lucky not to have the Nuggets as my home team. I’d look like a big rainbow bumblebee walking around the streets with THIS jersey on.

I hear the Magic School bus is always looking to hire.

Everyday life in Hawaii

2013-01-06_15-33-35_37

Thought I would just post some pictures of what I’ve been up to everyday while I’m here.

Nothing too crazy.

First picture is of some Taro Boba Milk Tea! Which was delicious! I ordered a small but it turned out to be pretty big.

This was the picture from the first day of school.

It was raining pretty hard in the morning but there’s always a rainbow during/after so I thought it’d be cool to show you guys.

It sucked for me though. Unprepared. No umbrella. Wearing a see through shirt.

NOT A GOOD IDEA.

And this was the second day of school.

Still raining. Still unprepared. But at least this time I was NOT wearing a see through shirt. Phew~

Took me about 2-3 days of working on it after school but I finished the 1000 piece underwater puzzle that I had bought over Thanksgiving vacation in LA.

It was actually a lot of fun. (No Mark did not help me put it together).

I think this is what happens when you are an only child. Board games don’t really do it for you but a PUZZLE! Now THAT’S a WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY! Oh man did I love putting together puzzles when I was a kid.

No I did not have a sad childhood, thank you very much. I just like what I like. That’s all.

And now it’s time to look for another one to complete!2013-01-09_17-25-53_185

Watched the Lakers vs Spurs game yesterday.

And I was like all other Lakers fans yesterday, greatly disappointed.

Man, being so many games under .500 SUCKS!

WE HAD IT TOO! I thought we were SO lucky when Parker through it out of bounds but NO. We have to F*** it up like we always do in the 4th quarter. Typical Lakers. *Sigh*

I like the Spurs though but this would have been a good win for the Lakers. A girl can dream.

And Dwight Howard, Jordan Hill and Pau Gasol are out for tomorrow’s game.

I thought the injuries would be not as frequent now that we’re back at a regular season but again I was mistaken.

UGH PLEASE SOMEONE JUST TAKE DH OFF OUR HANDS!

WE DON’T WANT HIM ANYMORE!

(And I NEVER wanted him in the first place!)

Gay.

We went and had some yogurt yesterday so that made things a lot better.

Yogurt: Peppermint, Taro and Plain Tart with Rainbow Sprinkles and Mochi! YUM!

And I started writing and editing for the University paper! I am so excited!

I’ll post a link to the University blog to which I will probably be posting to.

Exciting!!!!!

My amazing Saturday

School started last week so it’s been a bit hectic but I’m getting used to my schedule little by little so I’m pretty happy about that.

I have class Mon/Wed/Fri and I work Tue/Thur/Sun so no work/school conflict which is amazing!~ Thank you Travis!

But guess what I did on my one day off? EVERYTHING!

It was time to get a new phone plan along with new phones so that’s just what we did first thing in the morning. I chose the Droid Razer Maxx or whatever it’s called. It’s a little different from my old Droid X so it’s going to take a little getting used to but I like my phone so far. My wallpaper is this cat rolling around on an office chair. IT IS ADORABLE!

What did we do after that? What else but go to the beach at Bellows Air Force Base!

Clear blue waters and not TOO many kids. Win-Win-Win! I made sure we were seated as far away from the little beasts. Do I want sand kicked in my face and constant screaming? Um. No.

And for those of you who know me know I don’t like the water, sand or anything like that so instead I got to do a little reading while I was there.

I decided to reread Candide since we’re using it as a model for our own satiric masterpieces. And I have to say, I did like it better the second time around. I still say that my favorite piece of satiric work is Don Quixote, hands down. Come on, Don Quixote threw up in Sancho Panza’s mouth! Ah~ classic.

And while we were there I picked up these cute post it memos that they had at the shop! I’m going to use them for the photo albums and scrapbooks I want to make. They’d make pretty adorable additions to my already cute photo album! Yes they are to die for! Be jealous!

But my day doesn’t end there! There was a Goodwill Glam Sale at the Blaisdell Arena and since it’s right down the street from where I live I thought it’d be fun to go check out what they have going on. I ended up paying $2 admission because I had my military ID. Yay! And boy did I pick up a handful of stuff.

Not pictured is a shirt I picked up for my father-in-law but upon bringing it home Mark said that it would NOT fit his dad. Fail. So I’m sending it to my sugar baby instead. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it. I hope it fits his style though…Hmmm…

But before I go into detail about what I bought, look at these beautiful cars they had on exhibit at the back of the hall. GORGEOUS!

I just stood there drooling for a little bit but then continued shopping.

I got the Hello Kitty purse and the Tokidoki pouch at a steal of a price! My cousins are going to love these when I send them home for Christmas! And the last purse is for me. It’s nothing special but it was colorful AND it had zebra print and that was all it took to get me to buy it. Sad but it’s true.

And I bought this vintage-y dress that I absolutely fell in love with! Mark just thought it was whatever but I love it and that’s all that matters. And it fits perfectly too!

I also got this summer dress because I CAN’T WEAR ANY OF MY LITTLE BLACK DRESSES HERE BECAUSE IT IS TOO HOT! UGH! But I thought the dress was cute and I’ll be happy because I’ll finally be able to wear something that I’ve bought.

Oh and to top off everything of the day Mark and I went to a Roller Derby match right here in Honolulu. I used to love going while I was in LA so it was nice to be able to go in Hawaii as well. They didn’t have a real track and some of the rules were different but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Overall I had a pretty amazing Saturday. Yup! Hope everyone is having as much fun with their life as I am!
