Stimulate Me Baby!

July 29th, 2008
By

Queenie was having too much fun with her titles lately so I wanted to throw one out too! :razz:

Recently Da Wife and I finally received our stimulus check (WWD!) - sucks having our ssn end in the upper stratosphere - and we were pleasantly surprised by the amount. 

Who isn't? It's free money.

Truth be told, it came shortly after our 1st wedding anniversary date and at that time we were still deciding how to celebrate.

Take a neighbor island trip? Stay at Turtle Bay? Buy something? 

"Free" money does a number on your senses. We hear it a lot: Save it! Pay off bills! Finally can buy your eye candy!

The funny thing is we've had this check - deposited of course - for a couple of weeks and we haven't decided what to with it. We've been very fortunate (disciplined) enough to have finally paid off our last "long term" debt and now looking forward to a longer term debt with a refinance we're trying to complete to finally buy a home.

The angel on our right side says to save it but the devilish fun side on the left says to spend it.

How did you spend your stimulus check? Did you even get one?

Did you receive the max? Said you was going to save it but nevah? Did you pay some bills? Ok, wat did you buy? Spill da beans!

So you one angel or one devil? C'mon, stimulate me!

    i wanna type "first" but with my luck...once i hit post there'll be like 4 other comments before me!! lol!

    well i was stimulated a few months ago, but still haven't used it. i wanna do some minor home decorating stuff, paint...landscape...tile a small area of my kitchen. but just haven't had the time. i thought about using it to pay bills, but to be completely honest it wouldn't help much, so i figured it be better spent on the house...i wish i could take a trip or something but with the cost of airfares now, i could maybe hit a neighbor island...ahhh, i remember the good 'ol days, like 2 years ago where we could go r/t to cali for $300...i miss dem days!


  2. Ynaku:

    FIRST

    YOU BEAT RODNEY


  3. Ynaku:

    Wow JuSaMee beat me. is ok all good here


  4. munch:

    woo hoo! i got mines right after we came back from Vegas....so technically it was "vegas recovery" for me :-P aaaaactually, i did pay some bills too...so not all for fun


  5. kako mochi:

    i got mine (the max for a single) and paid off one credit card and paid down another card . . . i really don't NEED anything . . . but my WANTS are a different story! but it's alright . . . i feel better that i have one less bill to worry about!

    don't worry . . . the devil comes out every weekend (when i go out w/the girls) and when i'm shopping online!

    *teehee*


  6. Warrior Dave:

    Got our check so we going to Vegas to win the Megabucks and then on to Florida to witness the greatest victory in the history of UH sports!

    Cheee Hooo!! Life is good!


  7. islandgirl in nc:

    We got the max (2 adults plus one child), and it went entirely to bills. :( It's okay because better bills making more bills... lol!

    On a brighter note, I am doing great BL! Sorry, I haven't been able to respond earlier. Some days are better than others. It's hard recovering from surgery where they literally had to move your ribs apart. But, I feel so much better than those first few days. Thanks for asking!


  8. daBomb:

    i've used it to help pay for my new set of eyes....Lasik...now, I can really see the world and how it goes round....


  9. Ynaku:

    I got my check long time ago since I did a direct deposit. That was bad, since I didn't get to see it. Wife spent it. :( How? Buying stuff for me to put up. Redecorate (Me: Why we gotta change em? I like it as is! Wife: Cause look good. Now go put em up or else!!!) Nah she neva do dat. We did do some redecoration. Also took a weekend trip. Wished we could split it and she do what she like and I do what I like. Nope! No work li dat. What's mine is her's and what's her's is her's. :)
    We used the money (what belongs to us anyway) that Uncle Bush gave is benefit da family. So all was good. Not too stimulating, but was ok.

    GO WARRIORS!!!


  10. Shauna:

    Mine was electronically deposited in my savings. Plus, it's your money to begin with. I didn't like seeing all these stores offering discounts if you use your stimulus check. People should be saving now in these tough times, not spending just because you get a mere 10% off. Anyways... I beat you in your word game!! :) Still wanna compete? :)


  11. King Katonk:

    Braddah Lance and fellow Kwonics/Lanceformers.

    We just got stimulated down here in SoCal. A nice 5.8 earthquake centered less than 10 miles from my office.

    I think I'm going withdraw my stimulus check from the bank before world comes to an end. I want to see it on a 60 inch plasma t.v.

    (You think that approach will work with the wife?)


  12. 9th Island Girl:

    islandgirl in nc: Glad to hear you're feeling better.

    Boy, I like your blog subject, baby!

    We're so damn boring. We were going to just put um away, but I had that emergency trip to California so it was all good. If I had a side trip to Vegas, that would have been better...


  13. MoOgooGuypAN:

    I gotta admit that your heading wasn't too appealing to me. You being a guy and me being a guy..."stimulate me"...yuck. No offense. Hahaha.

    Anyhow. I got my check a while back and it's gone. I figure the whole point of the check was to *ahem* "stimulate" the economy. So what did I do? Shopped on Criagslist for a new bike. No luck, so I ended up buying a new bike from The BF near Ala's. I am stoked about it and so is the economy. OK maybe not the economy, but I feel good doing my part to help my fellow citizens. My advice to you Lance...enjoy it...that didn't come out right...OK that sounded off too. nevermind.


  14. Ynaku:

    Eh KK. Everything Ok down there with you and family? I know how it is after being stimulated like that living on the Big Island. Go with the TV and tell your wife if the banks close you can use it for bartering purposes. :)


  15. Braddah Lance:

    JuSaMee:

    So yours worked? I know two people who nevah worked so good. At least now wen you spock fo' chicks, you going know how dey look from far before it's too late eh? :wink:


  16. Tankobu:

    Hope everybody is okay on the West Coast!

    Excellent title, Braddah Lance!

    The check is in and in the bank for now. The missus will have control of the funny money, not me. I no like President Bush, but tanks for the stimulus; I'll do my part for the country.


  17. daBomb:

    BL:So yours worked? I know two people who nevah worked so good. At least now wen you spock fo’ chicks, you going know how dey look from far before it’s too late eh
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mine works fine...and u right...i can see chicks from 20/10 away...hehe....now....there's no need to worry about the "Chicks w/ D!ck$" that room Waikiki at night....I'm all game.


  18. panda-hugger:

    I say....

    go spend a few days a nice romantic hotel...

    and get a little stimulus...for that stimulus.


  19. roach:

    I used to help pay for my wife's surprise birthday party at the Willow's. So much for the "free" money, all gone ! Nothing for me.


  20. hemajang:

    Used the stimulus check to pay off da car. Good feeling to actually own da buggah outright. Hopefully all of stimulation will revitalize our economy but paying attention to the news is depressing. I'm looking forward to a new administration, our stimulus hero Bush has done enough damage to last a lifetime.


  21. King Katonk:

    Ynaku,
    Everything is fine...no aftershocks and the ceiling is still in tact.

    I called the wife immediately after it happened and she is fine. My kids thought the whole episode was pretty fun.

    Forget withdrawing the stimulus check. I'm going to Costco right now and buying the big screen t.v. on good ol' American credit.

    I don't think my wife will let me back in the house.


  22. Braddah Lance:

    Geez, you Kwonics too fast. I jus' wen post and bam! Some mo'. Cheee-hooo!

    Shauna:
    Anyways… I beat you in your word game!! Still wanna compete?

    I already yielded in my latest post in da movie game. A jestah's no match fo' one Queenie. :cry: I'm second fiddle in comments to you and Uncle....... but I can run fastah den both you and definetly out drink you two combined! hee hee

    Yeah, dat sounds much mo' convincing. :wink:


  23. Ocean Lover:

    It got deposited in the savings...........for a "rainy day" I guess.

    Actually, one of our cars is 13 years old now and this stimulus may be for part of a new car in a year or so? We got the "married couple with one child" amount so that should be enough for 4 wheels, a steering wheel, and the cup holders. Gotta save for the engine, car seats, car mats, windshield, car frame, etc.....

    Getting STIMULATED isn't enough to get around this island. :grin:
    Wait a second! Our check could PAY FOR 1/2 YEAR'S GASOLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cry:
    OL


  24. MoOgooGuypAN:

    Hey KK, before you buy that TV make sure the quake nevah drop um on the ground.

    Hey BL, so what? After the party at Kako's, Jusamee's, and munches we go KK's place for watch UH on da beeg screen.


  25. Braddah Lance:

    Ours came early as the hubby's number was in the first batch...some of it went to bills..some on the keiki's...and...two dates with my hubby.(good stimulation afta dat)...it came at a good time tho...hubby was in between jobs, so it allowed us to stay a float.

  29. Coconut Willy:

  30. munch:

  34. acuradriver02:

    Boy, everybody is quick on the keyboard today. Just got settled in and we're already on #32.

    I'm kinda jealous, we never get nothing from Uncle George...so life goes on as before, pay bills, pay private school tuition... But I do enjoy hearing what everybody else got to do with their check.


  35. King Katonk:

    Munch,
    You're all invited to my new house made out of a cardboard box. I won't be able to plug the t.v. since there is no electricity. Maybe the wife will allow me to string an extention cord from my former residence.

    Maybe I can bust up the old t.v. tonight and blame it on the earthquake?


  36. MoOgooGuypAN:

    Was going on with today's posts? Everyone's getting nasty.
    Tankobu talkin bout "Bush". (Revenge of the Nerds)
    munch tipping da mailman. (I guess that's one way to get stimulated)
    sassy7 giving the whole blow by blow event. (excuse da pun)
    panda like get more than enough stimulus.
    Ocean L not getting enough stimulus.
    acura getting off listening to everyone else.

    WWD? Everybody's mind in the gutter today and it's not even the weekend. Ho, Lance, dis one pretty controversial or at least can read um in to ways. Where's Logic1201 today?


  37. snow:

    The stimulus check wasn't too stimulating for me! Ahh, part of it probably will go to paying off our recent vacation... so I guess we will stimulate the economy a bit.

    KK - Glad to hear that you're okay, being so close to the epicenter of the quake and all!

    islandgirl in nc - Ouch! Sounds "itai (sore)!" Hope your recovery continues to go well!!


  38. MoOgooGuypAN:

    forgot to end the "bold" lettering. good ting I mix in the pidgin cause my super fast typing of incorrect spelling is bad.

    Too much stimulus from everyone.


  39. Braddah Lance:

  43. honda si boy (temporarily with a rental car :( ):

    man, i was a good boy and used that check (maximum amount) to pay off more of my car...and then that lady had to go side swipe me on the H-1. sad times. so i got to pay more for something i cannot even drive for another month. but hey, i got her insurance to pay for my rental...which is a white convertable sebring. chee-huuu, talk about going into "why-kee-kee" with my aloha shirt, straw hat, map, and sunblocked white nose!

    i should have been like KK and thought about "investing" in LCD or plasma technology. at least i could still be watching that 37" xbr at home :)


  44. lj:

    Mines went to paying bills and savings. More towards bills than savings though. :(


  45. gmanoa:

    Like your blog cuz you respond fast! - but how you do that if the boss can always read your stuff and you supposed to be reconciling something or posting some JE's. So while look like you frantically doing one spreadsheet, you answering the posts - WWD?

    anyway I no mo stimilus check - on extension and neva file yet

    LCD - trust me... they don't tell you plasma needs recharging at $300-500+ a pop every three or so years. Had to "convince" Da Wife of our LCD about a year and a half ago but I wore her down...aftah three months!

  48. M:

    My TV just went broke so I'm shopping for a LCD HD flat screen.


  49. CaptainblUbAll:

    i know this guy that is remodeling his house and he was nice enough to let us throw a bubble party before construction=) so this is what my "stimulating" check will be used for! hehe! beer, bubbles, and b....., sounds like one hella've a party! cheehoo! eh BL, no worry...i not going tell everybody that we having um at your house!


  50. jiggyboo:

    came just in time for my Vegas trip.....didn't feel bad about spending and winning some too so was all g.....


  51. kapalikuokalani:

    I get friends who got their checks for stimulate whatevahs. I no moa nothing, haha. I would probably just save 'em, leave it in the bank like the Pake I am. Still, money is money. Gotta spend 'em sometime!


  52. anklebiters:

    What check? Stimulate who? No Korean bars around here :-)

    Paid for part of my airfare to HNL in the fall....must keep Hawaiian Air solvent.


  53. SneagleBeagle:

    We got a letter saying that the check will be in the mail anytime after July 4, but it hasn't arrived yet. The letter said that if doesn't arrive in eight weeks to let them know.

    Currently, we don't owe anything except monthly utilities & rent - a habit which comes from not holding any credit cards and driving old cars & taking the bus. That habit came after we were forced into bankruptcy over a decade ago and lost everything. The remaining bills from that debacle are still around since the debts were not discharged, but we are making a minor dent in them. Spouse calculates that somewhere around 2045 when we'll be coming up on our 90th birthdays, we'll be able to start saving for our old age.


  54. Scott:

    Man, I'm late. Half day of frustrating social situations on the Leeward coast/homeless issues, cured by 27 holes of golf at Makaha East. Stimulus check, gone, poof, nada, CC bills, but now all paid off.


  55. KalopaMom:

    ho, wish we got one of those checks.... pay enough in taxes, everybody should get something!


  56. Koauka:

    Dude, gotta file on-line. Direct deposit by 3rd week of May. When I got the funds, went straight to Sam's Club. Bought me a HP Office jet printer for $150.00. Buggah is pretty good too. But da ink cartridge is about $30.00 for each black one.

    I think the rest of my stimulus check gonna pay for ink.


  57. Snow:

    I was so excited to pay off my credit card, or most of it at least. And then summer tuition was due and I had to put it on my credit card. Arrggh. The joys of getting an education. It helped me pay tuition, so it's okay.


  58. book2:

    I'm not stimulated at all... mine went into da bank for save for a rainy day.... da only ting i gewt for buy is my wants and dat can wait... (boring yeah)... anyway, no can go vegas yet until I can travel with no problems with my heart.... oh yeah.. found out i gotta reroof da house so there goes the stimulation... i no can talk about the other kine stimulation cause i'm all stimulated out!!!!!


  59. gmanoa:

    didn't mean to be the spoiler - hope you didn't get busted! Just asking, since I am doing to same thing at work and I always gotta keep a spreadsheet open so when the boss comes I just hit the alt-tab keys...

    We got a letter saying that the check will be in the mail anytime after July 4, but it hasn’t arrived yet. The letter said that if doesn’t arrive in eight weeks to let them know.

    You should have heard Da Wife wen we got dat lettah. "Call dem already!" "Easy Babe, nevah even been one week since they sent da lettah." It came in the next few days.

    btw, E Komo Mai! And yeah, saving at 90 sounds about right... no fo'get can recycle da Ensure cans eh? :lol:

    Braddah, you KILLIN' me!

    That's why you should have multiple display monitors...face the 'work' ones so anyone walking by will see your spreadsheet, word doc, email and face the 'play' one so they can't see what's being displayed until they stand directly next to you. :-)

    We all do that here....
