'Sneaker- heads', as they are (not really) called, were very excited yesterday with Nike's release of the long- awaited Air Jordans 11 Retro Concords. People lined up as early as 3 am to get their hands on, and feet into, a pair. However, as expected, things got unruly enough at South Center Mall that several people were pepper- sprayed and arrested. In Richmond, California, a guy fired a gun into the air to dispense the crowd that had gathered outside of a store to better his chances at getting a pair of the Jordans, while in San Leandro, California, a crowd of about 200 people broke through a mall entry door to line up outside iof a Foot Locker. The irony is, the manager of the Foot Locker kept HIS doors locked, concerned that the situation was getting 'dangerous'. Similar situations played out in Detroit, Atlanta and Charlotte. Meanwhile, electronics retailer Best Buy is getting slammed by angry customers for cancelling their orders right before Christmas. In a seeming effort to make their customers as angry as possible, Best Buy has said nothing about compensation, which products have been affected or how many orders have been cancelled. Way to go. And then there's the well- documented uptick in packages being stolen from people's doorsteps. 'Tis the season, indeed! With all of this nonsense going on, we felt compelled to ask: WHAT IS THE MOST TROUBLE YOU'VE HAD TO GO THROUGH TO GIVE OR RECEIVE A GIFT?
Yea, the stories weren't awesome today... not bad, but not awesome. Is that why I'm not typing much of a blog? No. I'm feeling lazy and this is our last day before our holiday break. So here's the skinny; we're off all of next week and will be back on January 3rd? Whatever the first Tuesday is after the New Year, that's when we'll be here.
I speak for all of us here when I say, have a good holiday, whatever you celebrate or don't celebrate.
OK bitches, until we meet again, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
