Pressing My Luck

August 28th, 2009
By

It's been a tough week and Feel Good Friday has come none too soon. :grin:

There's been a lot of blog activity - which is surprising - but I'm not complaining. :wink: Lately we've gotten quite a few new posters on da verge of Kwonic status while there are quite a few we haven't heard from in awhile - I hope they're still around enjoying WWD!. :grin:

Yesterday, some of Da Hui came ovah and had lunch with Da Triad at Yanagi Sushi. It was definitely a welcome treat to spend some time with friends and enjoy a good meal together which is pretty ODD since we all wouldn't have done so oddahwise if it wasn't for da blogs.

It's amazing how mo'olelo's can bring people from different walks of life together with nothing in common but "words". It didn't happen ovahnight and it's still a work in progress but it really is neat how each time we meet, it gets more and more comfortable. Well, da bunch yesterday is an exception cause I think I think it was only aftah one time dat there was no barriers. Truly, it's da Aloha Spirit shinning through and if you're willing to share it, nothing but good can happen.

And das how it all begins, one Aloha at a time. :grin:

So wat's your plans for da weekend? Da Wife and I gotta do some major yardwork cause I'm about to undertake a huge project by building my own shed in da next couple of weeks but we gotta make space first by clearing some major weeds and a greenhouse. :shock: But da bestest part of da weekend will be tomorrow wen I may win 1 of 7 trips to Vegas!!! I was lucky enough to win a spot in a Blackjack tournament held at Ward by Island 98.5 radio station and I'm hoping to win one.

Now wea did I put my lucky undahwear, lucky hat and lucky..... well, I need all da luck I can get right?

Have a grrrreeeeat weekend everybodies and a Happy Feel Good Friday!

 

Some random pics from da week........... (hmmm, maybe a new segment on WWD!)

 

Stopped by da Canstruction exhibit to support Aunty Paula's companies creation! Plus it's a shaka and you all know dat dat's an automatic showing in WWD!

See! Now dis wat a bike looks like screaming to be stolen!

Lunch at Yanagi with (L to R):   opso, Shauna, Rodney, Paula, BL, NKHEA

    Hey BL, I've been MIA awhile but will be back more frequently now. It's been a pretty tough few months with my husband being unemployed but I'm happy to report he finally got a job offer after applying to A LOT of jobs and going on several interviews. It's been pretty up and down for us especially when we think he's gotten close to a job offer with a good interview only to find out he didn't get the job. But this time he finally got an offer of employment with a great salary (same as he was making at his last job thank goodness) with bonuses and benefits! He just needs to clear the drug and background check before he starts work. I want to thank everyone for all the good wishes and luck. This economy is tough right now and I am sympathetic to anyone who is out there looking for a job. My husband says things are starting to look up especially with the number of job posting increasing now as opposed to the first part of this year. Thanks again for the good thoughts and this is really a Feel Good Friday for us!

    Hey BL, happy FGF!

    SPAGHETTI

    For several years, a man was having an affair with an Italian woman. One night, she confided in him that she was pregnant.

    Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, He paid her a large sum of money if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child.

    If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born.

    To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card, and write 'Spaghetti' on the back. He would then arrange for the Child support payments to begin.

    One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. 'Honey, 'she said, 'You received a very strange post card today.'

    'Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later,' he said. The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted.

    On the card was written:

    'Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti.

    Three with meatballs, two without.

    Send extra sauce.

  6. matt:

    what I doing this weekend? getting ready to go home for a week, baby!! seems like forever since I was there.
    now I'm cruising at home because there's a hazmat emergency near my work and all access is closed. just happy it's not at my site.

    for all you at home: what kind of omiyage do you like from the bay area? trader joes stuff? salame? I got my standard stuff, but would like to see if there are treats and goodies that i hadn't thought of.


  7. matt:

  8. GA Bows:

    Happy Feel Good Friday everyone.

  9. sally:

    Good Morning All!
    Great pics BL!, just as life should be. Home projects are therapeutic... or is it just me? hahaha

    I got garage sale plans and beach plans. Will be interesting with no car, will probably do a sleepover.
    Gotta make arrangements for nephew to come get my car (cuz I am NOT driving it even if he says I could)
    so he can take it home to Waipahu and work on it. I luuuurvvvve my nephew! He's gonna fix everything
    at one time... ignition switch, motor for sideview mirrors, doorlocks, trans flush, safety check and anything
    else short of detailing it. Clay and Detail... that I can do. LOL
    Did I say I luuuurrrrve my nephew?


  10. Ynaku:

    Good Morning.

    Oh man I thought I was first until I saw all da posts on the right side of the screen. WWD!!!! COnspiracy.

    Hey Island Girl. Congrats on yourhusband finding a job. Hope things turn out better for you. We sure did miss you. Fo' realz

    Hey jaydee, das one funny one.

  12. Ynaku:

    Nope


  13. roach:

    BL,

    I'm so looking forward to the weekend not because we have any great plans but work has been tough this week. No one stole my bike but we've been doing the old government shuffle - one step forward, two steps back. Hey, good luck with the blackjack tournament, I hope you win a trip to Vegas. Maybe, we'll see each other up there in October or December.
    It can't be Feel Good Friday without a joke:

    A suspicious husband hired a private eye to check on the movements of his wife. In addition to a written report, the husband wanted a video of his wife's activities.

    A week later, the detective returned with a film. They sat down together and proceeded to watch it.

    Although the quality was less than professional, the man saw his wife meeting another man! He saw the two of them strolling arm in arm and laughing in the park. He saw them enjoying themselves at an outdoor cafe. He saw them dancing in a dimly lit nightclub. He saw them take part in a dozen activities with utter glee.

    "I just can't believe this," said the distraught husband.

    "What's not to believe?" the detective said. "It's right up there on the screen!"

    "I simply can't believe my wife could be so much fun!" the husband replied.

    Have a great weekend everybody !

I know what to bring for omiyage....there certainly isn't anything "Arizona" to bring back....unless you want a cactus or a gila monster . :lol:

  24. Ynaku:

    Hey BL

    A man riding his bike along a road in the countryside comes across a shepherd and a huge flock of sheep. Stopping to rest, he tells the shepherd, "I will bet you $100 against one of your sheep that I can tell you the exact number in this flock."

    The shepherd thinks it over. It's a big flock, so he takes the bet.

    The man looks around and answers, "869." The shepherd is astonished, because that is exactly right.

    The shepherd says, "Okay, I'm a man of my word, take an animal." The man picks one up and begins to walk away.

    "Wait," cries the shepherd, "let me have a chance to get even. Double or nothing that I can guess your exact occupation." The man agrees.

    "You are an accountant for Honolulu Advertiser," says the shepherd.

    "Aigoo!" responds the man. "Das right! But tell me, how you figa dat?"

    "Well," says the shepherd, "put down my dog and I will tell you."

    Happy Feel Good Friday all you Kwonics, Lanceformers and Lurkahs. Wishing you da best BL. Hope you win double or nothing. :lol:

    not sure how seriously you take the 21 tournament, but you do realize that tournament strategy can be much different than regular strategy, right? two good books are Tournament Blackjack by Stanford Wong (for adjusting to tournament play) and Sklansky talks Blackjack by David Sklansky for 21 theory stuff.
    good luck

    Long time no blog! We were away for 2 week vacation. Got back last Saturday and have been playing catch-up at work ever since.

    Quick note - hopefully passing on a bit of good luck to you. When we were on our cruise, my wife entered a slot tournament, just for the fun of it. To make long story short, she won the tournament and $500. Not bad for $20 entry fee + a whim. You want the "lucky" bracelet she wore that day??

    Happy Friday, everyone.

  56. M:

    I can finally read your blog!

    Good luck in the tourney! I'm rooting fo you to all da way!


  57. Braddah Lance:

    matt:
    not sure how seriously you take the 21 tournament, but you do realize that tournament strategy can be much different than regular strategy, right?

    Mahalos for sharing dat! Yup, I do know dat tourny strategy is different from "table" strategy but I don't know wat kine of tourny is being run. I won da seat from a radio station promo and sometimes they play some coo-koo kine games jus' to get "excitement" and I'm figgah'ing it to not be a "real" tourny. Gotta kinda see and go with da flow. From wat I can "logically deduct", going be 7 tables and da winnah from each going win da trip. I'm pretty surah going be time limit too so I just gotta hope I catch a good draw and double da bets at da right time and I hope it's single or double deck so counting cards is easier (dis not Vegas so I not going get kicked out right? :lol: ) Oh yeah, bettah not have an idiot third base at da table I'm on. :roll:

We did it all from da night Alcatraz tour to "Biking The Bridge" to walking all ovah. Which reminds me, I gotta get to posting some videos.
