In these Rona times, the closures due to COVID continue to climb. While walking around Ala Moana, I noticed a few more shuttered storefronts. Banana Republic, amazingly, has been closed for some time. Abercrombie for Kids closed its doors. Forever 21 didn’t make it in 2021. Foot traffic at the mall does seem to be […]

Hello, Black Friday?
Is this thing working? Sadly due to COVID and all its social distancing restrictions, Black Friday shopping doesn’t feel like Black Friday shopping. Sure, online sales have already started earlier in the week and more specials are inbound, so maybe the frenetic craziness of BF shopping may actually happen. In any case, hope you had […]
The Vanishing Playstation 5
It’s simply amazing how fast the new Sony Playstation 5 sells out. No matter the vendor, no matter the venue, and no matter what time of day – the PS5 vanishes seconds after releasing. Today, Walmart advertised that they would be restocking the PS5 for an early Black Friday. I refreshed the product page for […]
I Am a Closet Swiftie?

Insulted by Blue Oats
Hmmm, should I be insulted since I did NOT win the Adidas raffle for the new Yeezy 380 “Blue Oats?” I learned that the reflective version was very limited, but I didn’t consider that this non-reflective version would be difficult to get. And even though Adidas held a raffle, I thought winning one would be […]
