I like hollister jeans.
I got a gift card for hollister for christmas. I've only been in the
store two or three times before. It always makes me angry because the
store is so damn dark. Especially the dressing room. You can never
tell if the stuff actually fits or looks good because it's so dark!
And it's noisy and it smells bad and half naked men traipse around the
store refolding clothes and shuffling the hangers as soon as you are
done touching the clothes. Furthermore, it is mostly ripped up
clothes [jeans].
I gave up trying to spend my credit because the store is so
irritating- practically a violation of the local disturbance of the
peace law.
I went online to see if I could make a complaint and came across the
online store.
While still portraying the feeling of preppy beach wear and an
Americanized surf culture, the site is miles better than the store.
There is easy navigaton, adequate product pictures and it doesn't reek
of perfurme and belt out music in inaudible bass. I alaienjoy the
anonymity of shopping online and without being eyed out by workers.
I ended up buying a pair of dark wash jeans- without holes and stuff-
in an appropriate size (they had a short inseam) and at a cheaper
price than in store- even with the shipping.
It turned out to be a good buy- I really like the basicness of it
(definately matches a lot of things in my wardrobe and not fancy nancy
pokeys and zippers and bling) and the fit turned out alright. Over
priced? Maybe. But i used up my credit - and that was a big help. I
paid about $10 out of pocket (a little bit more than the shipping) so
it was a good deal.
Despite the cliches and connotations that go with shopping and buying
from hollister, I don't consider it a fashion or culture crime to have
and admit liking these jeans. I'm not above spwnding money at
corporate chains or big box retailers (o walmart, what would I do
without thee?) if they can benefit me in a small way. So sue me, I
look good in these skinny jeans. New pants can't change a whole
person, but they make you happier and more confident whichbleafs to
greater things.
So guys, don't judge me.

It's day two of my magnesium regimen- and I don't know if it's
chemistry, weather, or placebo- but I am feeling great! The nausea is
completely gone (or back to normal, I guess) and the headaches have
decreased about 1000000000 times in intensity and recurrence. I had a
few sharp spring ups of head ache but it was gone fairly quick. This
also put me in a good mood (although they say magnesium can also
supplement certain mood drugs by increasing enzyme pathways) and I
think layne appreciated it much. ; ) maybe it really is a placebo
(although I must admit I thought the magnesium would do jack shit and
I'd end up having to visit a doc this week) or a change in weather
(the vog is leaving and it's getting really really cold) or I just
recovered from a virus of something. I don't know and can't card now
because I'm just happy its gone! I'll continue the magnesium and
report back again.

Yesterday I was kind of busy so I didn't blog. But what a he'll of a
day! My mom'e car died and caught on fire! Lucky thing she was
across the street from a fire station at the time! The car had to be
towed home and is probably never going to run again. And Then... The
toilet broke! My sister flushed and the handle just fell off! So I
opened the tank and found that the rod connecting the handle to the
chain was snapped off and had to get a new part. Ofciurse now it
starts pouring rain and I have to take the bus to walmart to get the
part... One hour later I'm on the toilet with a wrench taking the damn
thing apart. No body told me that the plastic nut is actually
tightened in the opposite (counter clockwise) direction! I was trying
to unscrew the damn thing for about 15 minutes and it was just
loosening and tightening itself over and over! Finally I decided to
try turning it in the clockwise direction figuring that it would get
so tight that it would crack and snap off (thus allowing me to remove
it) when lo! It got looser! Finally managed to get it off! And
Then... The Fricken new part that I bought had the arm at a wierd
angle so it was scraping the inside of the tank! I had to breakout
the pliers and bend it in the opposite direction so the handle would
be free to move. You know me- a good problem silver but not very good
at practical application... I finally fixed the toilet and it's
working! I'm making a note here, huge success! This is a pretty big
deal for me because I am so bad at mechanics and stuff.
And why, you may ask, was I fixibg a toilet and not at school on this
fine Friday? Because we had an island wide (almost state wide, but
the big island was nor included) civil defense warning for high
winds! Suppordly 60mph winds! However, it was just a mild panick
attack on the part of the national weather service and of was fairly
calm except for mild power outages in Kailua, waiks, and Mille ville.
There was a huge down pouf of rain a few times but we've had worse. I
did hear that Maui got the wknd pretty bad- flights were grounded
because it was too dangerous to takeoff. So
The day was spent making oatmeal cookies (see my twitter for live
photos of the process), fixing stuf, chemistry homework, and calming
mom's nerves.
Today I had my usual volunteer. Then came home and watched one of my
favorite musicals- seven brides for seven brothers- on turner classic
movies and then went out with layne. We went to look at paintball
stuff (next week Saturday, bitches!) than get some food and then
played left 4 dead.

That's all for now. Time to do laundry.
