The ESPY Awards are this Wednesday and our favorite goalie is nominated for best NHL player! I did my part by casting my vote for him (did you?!) so let's hope Ryan's award winning streak stays alive and he picks up that cute little ESPY trophy. The other nominees are Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Henrik Sedin, and Steven Stamkos... I'm sure most NHL fans are a little sick of Crosby and Ovechkin getting the accolades, and Sedin and Stamkos certainly aren't talked about as much as Crosby or Ovechkin...but Ryan Miller is simply better and deserves to win, amirite?
Thanks to a heads up from Ryan's good friend and event planner, Therese Forton, she informed us on her website and blog that Ryan will be calling in at 8 am on Wednesday to 97 Rock to talk about his ESPY nomination and the upcoming Catwalk for Charity. So if you're an early bird, hearing Ryan on the air would be a nice way to start your morning, don't you think?
Speaking of Catwalk for Charity, I mentioned it in my last post that the date and theme has been announced, and already my head is swirling with ideas on what to wear! I don't know about you, but I love themed parties and events, and I always try and get into them by dressing accordingly. I love thinking ahead and planning on what I'm going to wear, so the last few days I've spent some time thinking about what I'm going to wear. Hell, a few months ago I started thinking about what I should be for Halloween this year (what SHOULD I be?), so it's not really crazy for me to be thinking this far ahead about what I'm going to wear at Catwalk. In my last post I said I wanted to wear one of Lady Gaga's outfits in her Telephone music video, but then I started thinking... While showing up in a studded leather bra and underwear wearing a leather jacket with pop cans in my hair will surely bring me a lot of attention, I'm not quite sure if it's the kind of attention that I would want. Plus, while I think Lady Gaga is fun and all, let's be honest...a lot of her crazy looks can be stemmed back to Madonna. So why would I want to rip off someone's look who already ripped off their look from someone else? ANSWER ME THAT! So I decided that making up my own look would be more fun and a little more original... And so far I've come up with this:
Yeaaah! If I was a 20-something girl in the 80s (or a 20-something hipster in 2010), then this is probably something I would wear. Run DMC were a major part of the hip-hop movement in the 80s and they're one of my favorite rap groups so it makes sense that I would wear one of their t-shirts... I'm thinking about cutting the neckline to make it reveal one of my shoulders for more of an authentic look. And let me tell you, I would feel like one of the coolest, baddest chicks around with my studded belt and chain and my fingerless lace gloves. Hell yeah! Don't you ever wish you could go back in time, but remain the same age you are now? I always wish I could go back and be in my 20s in the 90s so I could go out clubbing while dancing to all those amazing 90s dance and club songs. And now I wish I could go back in time in the 80s so I could strut my stuff in those duds.
One thing I'm probably going to leave out in my look is the hair. I know, I know...hair is an essential part in completing in 80s look. And while it's fun to dress up in past trends, between you and me, I think there are just certain past trends that should be just that...past trends. So I think I'll give my dignity and the ozone layer a break and stay away from that can of Aqua Net.
