to a T

"GoodMorning" towels are usually used in old-fashioned hair salons here in S.E.Asia, simply coz its cheap and does what its supposed to do. Its also a pain to get it back to the original whites when you think about the type of coloring/stains it gets up to in its daily use. So if you spot a salon having spotless clean white towels, you know someone's been working to their knuckles doing the wash. These days, we put 'em thru different usesTommy uses hers as a tea-towel, i use 'em to clean my sneaks(!), not everyone has freebies from Jason Markk y'know (though i wouldn't mind a set! big hint alert)

This jersey's been getting lots of love lately. Weather's been gettin' crazy as usual, with 35Celcius on one end and torrential rains within the hour. Thank god for Ed Hardy's ingenius armpit vents and oversized jersey cotton: its excellent for equatorial weather! plus don't you find Ed's upside down pose strangely intriguing?

I hate it when i miss excellent bball games while i'm at work [damn you, global time-zone!], but i'm so glad for the net coverage. LeBron's on LeBrink of greatness [pardon the pun, it just slips out], everyone should go check out the historic Game 5 against Detroit. Lots of video clips over there, but make sure you watch "Inside NBA" with Chuck and Reggie. Chuck:he's [LeBron] a raging inferno, i tell you, on FIRE!"
Man, he was hitting them shots with hands in his face like shooting through a barnyard door; side-stepping and throwing tomahawks not once, but THREE times in clutch; double-teamed 3-pt jumpshot, the list goes on. Final scoreline? 29 of the team's last 30pts. I think i saw Jordan on the game-winning improbable lay-up through 4-man traffic

'06: witnessing the beginning. '07: overcoming the Detroit hurdle
And beat Detroit he did. Game 6 just ended, and as Chuck and Reggie rightly said, LeBron need not play well, the rest of the team will bring it home. Cavs in the finals, who would;ve thought? Thanks LBJ, for setting the Finals alight and finally come alive.
