Clock Backpacks

February 2, 2007 at 9:57 pm 13 comments

We spotted a nineties fad on UA&P grounds yesterday. One fad of the nineties was to own a backpack with a clock. During my elementary days, the Clock Pack was a mark of *excuse the term* coolness.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]

My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
