TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Week 1

Week one of my epic TypeTees Slogan-A-Day Experiment has just wrapped up. Wheww, and I have to admit that I am mentally exhausted! I underestimated how hard it would be to come up with just one original slogan a day. It’s hard guys. Luckily, I’ve employed a bit of strategy. All of the slogan submissions some way had to do with an event or something that I experienced during the day. This helped. And so every Friday I will break down my seven Typetees submissions of the week … until I get printed by Threadless! So, if you’re sick of this then vote me up so Threadless hurries and prints me! Or, if you enjoy the slogan – go ahead and give me some I’d Wear It’s, it will make me smile.

My question for those of you who have submitted to TypeTees and have been printed – how long do you guys think this will take? What are the chances that any of my slogans will ever see the light of day on a TypeTees tee?


I used to be fierce. Now I’m ruthless!

Interesting, this was my inaugural TypeTees slogan entry. What was I thinking! And no, I was not listing to Beyonce prior to hitting submit. I actually just wrapped up watching Punisher: Warzone and this popped in my mind. Best of the three Punisher picks, BTW. 

What kind of egg are you?

Eggs! This one was easy since on this day I was inspired by some of the best Eggs Benedict on the island. And being from Hawaii, it’s not just any Eggs Benedict – it’s Eggs Benedict on Kalua Pork from Cinnamon’s in beautiful Kailua. Great way to spend a Sunday morning!

This is me in high definition.

I believe I was flipping through the weekly Bestbuy ad when I realized that everything “good” nowadays must be high definition. And well, me in person is in fact me in high definition, so there you go. 

My life fits in a manila folder.

Very true. I’m an academic by training. I love school. When I finish grad school I plan to get a job as a University professor hence prolonging my stay in school indefinitely. And so, my life which is consumed by reading and reading over and over again research articles can literally fit in a manila folder. Just throw a couple of relevant articles into a manila folder on any given day and I am set.

Please do not lean on torso.

I went to go and eat some char siu pork ramen from one of my favorite ramen restaurants, Goma Tei. While waiting to go in I noticed a Do Not Lean on Glass warning on a neighboring shops window. 

Four words: listen to the woman.

If you’ve got a girl in your life – listen to her! That’s all I’m going to say here. Best advice ever.

All you need to do to join my fan club is give me a hug.

If I had a fan club, the price to join would be a hug because hugs are one of the worlds greatest inventions.

Mama’s Island Pizza

If you’re looking for quality pizza in Hawaii then skip all of the chains like Papa John’s, Dominos, Pizza Hut and even California Pizza Kitchen and instead opt for some great tasting, traditionally made pizza at Mama’s Island Pizza.

Mama’s Island Pizza has been serving the Kailua community since late 2005, and recently underwent management changes in early 2008. Even though there’s a new mama in town, the staff is still just as friendly and the pizza is the same cheesy and meaty goodness that customers have come to expect.

They offer seven types of Hawaii themed pizza’s, from the Kailua supreme with pepperoni, Italian sausage, mushrooms, green peppers and sweet red onions to the Island Veggie Spectacular which is topped with a slew of top quality veggies. My favorite pizza has to be the Hey Brah Meat Delight, it is definitely the pizza for the meat lover in you. It comes with a colossal combination of Portuguese sausage, pepperoni, Italian sausage, bacon, and meatballs. Another favorite of mine at Mama’s are the Midwestern style chicken wings.

One of the best things about Mama’s other than the great tasting and high quality pizza is that they accept competitor’s coupons. If you bring in a coupon from Pizza Hut, Papa John’s or any other pizza company then they give you a discount on your pizza order! The discount ranges depending on the size of pizza you are ordering, from three to five dollars.

Be sure to make the trip to Mama’s Island Pizza the next time you’re in Kailua town, you’ll be greeted not only by friendly people but by the best pizza on the island.
