It’s Monday everyone...the spookiest day of the week. If we’re being honest today is terrifying for me. I actually got dressed to look like a normal person...to work from home?? Is something going on with the planets? Astrology girlies hit me up PLEASE.
So...this may be my new favorite day of the month. The 9th. I know what you guys are thinking, today’s the 10th? Yeah I know, I can count. I’m talking about Ice Nine Kills, Nightmare on the Ninth. It’s become my newest obsession. I mean, I’ve always loved these drops, but the closer we get to October, the more haunting they become. Also to be completely fair I thought this month was going to be Halloween, not August. So already, off to a super disappointing start.
The theme of this month’s drop is...HACK TO SCHOOL. Personally, I haven’t been excited about school supplies and backpacks since I graduated college. Humble flex. However, for some reason this drop makes me want to enroll in a community college and strut this new stuff. Do I have the time for that? Absolutely not, but where else will I use a lunchbox. MY HOUSE? Wait...we may be on to something.
If that didn’t tickle your pickle enough, I know what will. Letterman jackets. There are guys and girls fits, just what we wish we all had in high school. When I was a youngin, I had to get the guy's version of a letterman. Made me look like a complete square. It was the most unflattering fit you could have. Now, you don’t have to go through what I did. Whether you were a jock in school or not, anyone could rock this. I mean are the sporty kids really popular anymore? It’s all about the music now. They also have a super cute flag, something I could see myself adding to my collection of college flags. Now, it’s not a regular flag, it’s those little spirit ones that you thumbtack into your wall. Dads everywhere are quaking at the fact that people like me thumbtack everything into their wall, but I totally recommend doing it as well.
My personal favorite though, is the lunchbox. I seriously have no idea why I am so fixated on this. Maybe it’s the fact that I had one in middle school that said “Orange Crush” on it. I thought I was so cool. TAKE ME BACK. I’m thinking this lunchbox may give me that nostalgia I need. It also may motivate me to eat lunch even on my busiest work days. Plus, who wouldn’t love to open their fridge and see a cool collectible in there?
So...what are we looking at this week in terms of me being annoying? I’m in the spooky spirit, so we’re going all in talking about Ice Nine Kills. They just fit all my spooky needs. I can talk for days about all their merch, past and present, and the nostalgia it brings. So, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. So prepare yourselves for this week's Halloween flavor.
‘Til next timeeeeeeeeee
