Promoting More Unproductive Days

Two shakas and a Howzit!

It's Feel Good Friday and while this morning didn't start off right, it's still Friday nonetheless but I know we're all waiting for next week's Feel Good Thursday right?

After getting home past 1am last night - uh, this morning - I sorta hanging. Our bowling league got started real late, the lanes broke every other bowler, the scorekeeping computer was all pupule and den I couldn't bowl a strike even if I threw down ten balls one crack! Oh yeah, did I mention we got our okole's kicked?! In case your wondering, my average was 192.

When I finally got home, my ankle was choke sore so after icing it and slipping into bed - it's almost 2am - my young impatient dog, Oneone, decides it's time to go potty and whines up a storm. All I was thinking was, 'Shut up!!! Don't wake up Da Wife, don't wake up Da Wife'. After hobbling to the yard I mutter to her, 'you killin' me dog! Literally' - like she understand.

Then I wake up this morning and couldn't find a matching pair of socks. Heh.

Then I couldn't find a note paper I needed. Uh.

Then I couldn't find my wallet. Huh?

Then I forgot I had to fill up gas cause I was on fumes already. Aggghhh!

After finally finding all three I head to da "pimp" (gas station) and get my fix of "liquid cocaine" (gas). Oh shoots, almost forgot - I gotta pick up some water balloons so I head into Longs next door and ask where stay.

Negative. They no sell water balloons.

Huh? Wassap Wit Dat!

They're Longs for crying out loud - they carry everything! Well, I guess minus water balloons.

So I say forget it and head into work and of course there's an accident...on DA OTHER SIDE OF THE FREEWAY! C'mon people! Wassap with da rubbah neckin'?! You can't even see over the divider but I know, da flashing lights remind you of da disco yeah?

And just like the sun rises every morning, get three cars in front of me only going 10 mph trying fo' spock out what's going on...with only ONE person in each car driving in the car pool lane!

'Nuff already.

Eh, you guys worked hard reading dis, go do some real work.....

Name Dat Film

Remembah Your Cartoons?

SHOUT OUT:  Help free my ex-boss from jail!!! It's the MDA Lock-Up and she needs everyone's help. Donate if can.  No can - no can, no worries.

Have a grrreeeaaat weekend Lanceformers/Kwonics/Lurkahs!

    Ho BL,

    A 192 average! That's like PROFESSIONAL already. Thought all the bowling alleys on Oahu disappeared. Bettah enjoy it now as pretty soon only gonna be a memory as the bowling alleys close up.

    If you want water balloons, go to FLORA DEC on Nimitz. They got the "grenade" ones.

    Great weekend all!

    Better throw a whole salt shaker over your shoulder to ward off the bad luck.

    Looking forward to next weekend, will be spending it at Hilton with friends and family. It's become our annual tradition to watch the fireworks from the beach fronting the Hilton.

    I feel your pain. Been in a funk all week. Must be post-vacation let down.

    Longs no more water balloons? WWD?!? Chee, Longs hasn't been the same the last couple of years. They really slipping. Better watch out for Walgreens, Longs!

    Eh, BL, try get the big balloons, da kine with the rubber band attached and you supposed to make like a punch ball with it. I figger that can hold a couple gallons. That's the "A-bomb" of water balloons! :D

    Ho wow Shauna, just rub it in that you off today, eh? Well, have fun while the rest of us toil at work! ;)


  14. munch:

    i don't know my cartoons too well :-|
    i also don't have water balloons, gas, your wallet, beer, or a cupcake for your "locked up" former boss. ahh good for notin'! this week has been a doozie *phew* next weeknd is the light at the end of the tunnel :)

    have a great weekend Lanceformers/Kwonics!


  15. Cindy:

    Geez Lance! You having the "Friday the13th" today? WWD? Oh! Forgot, hwn time! Where you bowling? Remind me not go there. Nah! Not going matter, the left side of the lane suppose to be better at all the alleys--not too many lefties so no mo' the rightie's groove! 192? What's your hdcp? 6? Gee, how you going make $$ like that?

    Wata balloons are smaller and can throw 'em like a baseball, right? The regla ones get bigger and you need 2 hands to throw 'em, right?

    Hope you find your balloons & you have fun this weekend!


  16. Cindy:

    Ho wow lau lau! Wea da pah-tay at? I'll bring da camera...and a DD. :mrgreen:


  22. KalopaMom:

    Wow! 192! I went bowling yesterday too and my score was 47. For real. Haven't bowled since high school more than 20 yrs ago. I sucked then too. So no worries, every time you feel junk about your score, just remember one of your readers who got a 47! By the way, love your blog, you always make me laugh.


  23. 9th Island Girl:

    192?! No wonder your handicap is so high! I think the highest I EVER bowled was a 90-something.

    Longs Moiliili has water balloons, but the stock people didn't even know it. They told me they didn't have it, then I saw it as I was walking past the party stuff.

    Some days everything goes wrong, and you just wanna go home and put your head under the blanket, sleep and start all over. Hope you're feeling better soon, and rest up this weekend. Have a good weekend Kwonics/Lanceformers!


  24. The Clown:

    No wonder why we dropping in the ranks for the league. Its cause your avg. WAS 192. Man I think you better hit the lanes on the weekend and start practicing so you can bring your avg back up and get the team back to being first. As our anchor you suppose to be holding us up not bringing us down.


  25. cindy:

    Oh boy! Neva-eva ask if things could get worse! Bachi, you know! You going broke your slippah when you picking mangoes, the bees going buzz you so bad, the ladder feel like it's going huli ova and then gotta get off, the duck going poop on the walkway after you just pau washing 'em down! No ask!!!

  27. J.P.K.:

    whoa BL, you must bowl the Ewa Community League at Leeward eh? was that the league that Keith Odette shot 858? As you can see, I'm a bowler too ... no worries, I got less pins than you ... how's about the goose egg? hahahaha. Lanes must be nice Thursday night. You guys must've been on 27-28 ... lane fully broke down tonight ... they had to shut it down. I bowl Friday's 2nd shift. lane not that great that night, but I managed to get my name up on the board once this season ... I feel pretty confident I can get it up there again ... just gotta hit lanes 21 and up.

    Anyways, keep up the good bowling man. I know how hard it is to win pots with 5 pins or less.


  28. S:

    Hey BL! Ah, it is you! I used to bowl in that league a couple years ago for a few seasons. Good times... But yeah, I remember those late nights...

    Hope you have a great weekend to make up for your not-so-good Friday morning!
