Wassup Wit Dat!

Pressing My Luck

August 28th, 2009

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

There's been a lot of blog activity - which is surprising - but I'm not complaining. 😉 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!. 😀

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. 😀

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. 😯 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

  2. Rosette:

  3. J.P.:

  4. bamboohouse808:

    Aloha and Happy FGF Everyone!!

    Nice to see how the Triad blogs have brought all kine different peeps together and built new friendships. 😀

    On a side note, both the ladies in the pic stay "tilting" toward Uncle Rodney. Lucky guy! :mrgreen: But Uncle smaht, he tilting towards da wife. 😉


  5. BananaFysh:

    Whoa! New blog format? 😉

    If I had to guess, it's the pictures screwing it up. That NKHEA! I blame him. 😛
    Nah nah nah braddah, I just kidding. :mrgreen:

    Good luck in the tourney, BL!


  6. M:

    I can finally read your blog!

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


  7. 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? 😆 ) Oh yeah, bettah not have an idiot third base at da table I'm on. :roll:

  11. kako mochi:

  12. Hawaii.kiwi:

    It has been a hectic week at work so I am just looking forward to two days off; no specific plans. Have a great weekend everyone!

    I posted about 5 or so blogs on our travel to SF in our old website which is archieved kinda backward so please bear with the format if you decide to check it out.... maybe you can add some insight because one of Da Wife's best friend is going to SF in a couple of weeks. 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.

    *BL missing da taste of Busters... 😥 *
