You Ready?

Cause I am! The sun is out, the vog has cleared and surf is up! Who can ask for anything more?

Can't wait for da work day fo' be ovah! Unlike most other business' (or if you lucky enought to work for the city), the Advertiser doesn't have much observed holidays - we only have seven the whole year!

Wassap Wit Dat? 

So when we do get one, boy does it feel good (especially aftah da week I've had).

I guess I was spoiled from my previous employer having what felt like twenty holidays a year so now when I do get one here, it's a blessing. You don't realize how valuable (rejuvenating) holidays are but do you make the most of it?

Do you sleep all day? Catch up on chores? Go beach? Go out? Do anything?

My friends and I have a tradition of going to the beach and BBQ'ing all day into dusk. In fact we do it every holiday that falls on a Monday but picnic on the Sunday because generally it's not as crowded as going on the holiday itself? Plus we use the Monday to just relax and play catch up so that we're not as tired going back to work on Tuesday - pretty good right?

Wat your plans for da holiday weekend? Nothing fo' do? If you get ono kine grinds, you welcome to join us but remembah, buffet eating champs will be in da house and we don't go fo' da "junk" stuff.

Sooooo......

HOPING AND PRAYING FOR THE DAY TO END?

HOURS SEEM LIKE DAYS? MINUTES ARE STRETCHED OUT? SECONDS DOESN'T SEEM TO TICK?

Just let it out!

Happy Feel Good Friday Everyone!

Have a great safe Memorial Day weekend and say a prayer for all our military service men and women who have served and died for what we have today.

    I'm grateful to all of our military men and women who have given their lives for our country and our freedoms... and to our active duty and reserves who are there for us every day! Much thanks!

    My son has a goodwill baseball tournament, and we'll be spending family time at the ballpark for the games and fellowship...no matter if they win or loose, enjoying/learning from the experience is foremost.

  24. wicked:

    I seem to be on a different 'cycle' from everyone else! My holiday was this past week with lots of relaxation on Oahu. Since I'm with UH, any holiday that falls between mid August to Mid-May isn't really a holiday since school is in session. But last week I made my rounds in the City. Yesterday and today, recover from the "Jetlag" back to Hilo. (Yes, it's worse than jetlag I get from international flights). Then gotta do all the chores and errands that pile up over the semester and can't get done.

    Enjoy! If you're really bored, you can come my house to help sweep up and clean the kitchen!

  25. warriorfan:

    hey lance:

    since we have the same holiday schedule, i know it's tough. but you eventually get used to it after several years.

  26. bakopi5:
