Wassup Wit Dat!
Furlough Friday Could Be Everyday
February 26th, 2010

In case you haven't heard the owner of Star-Bulletin, Oahu Publications Inc, is buying out The Honolulu Advertiser from Gannett Co. Please get it straight, OAHU PUBLICATIONS INC is buying out The Advertiser, not da Star-Bulletin is buying out The Honolulu Advertiser.

Wat does dat mean in real life?

More than likely a loss of jobs and sadly, a loss of dis blog.

Wassap Wit Dat! has been going decently strong for da past two years and I'm only counting down da days before WWD! is no more. Am I optimistic dat I'll be retained for at least my real paying job? Probably not so with dat, WWD! won't be around wen I hit da unemployment line looking for work.

Anybody got any openings?   😉 

There's tons of info dat'll be coming out in da next few weeks and as things settle down we'll know more but until then it'a a gloom and doom kine feeling not only at 605 Kapiolani Blvd but also to our braddahs and sistahs at Restaurant Row (Star-Bulletin offices).

I wish everyone at The Honolulu Advertiser and The Star-Bulletin luck cause dis kine stuff only brings out da worse.

Well, dat's all I got cause it's 3:00am, earlier tonight I bowled a 233, 201 and 258 all scratch and sadly nevah win nothing, my brain is totally fried and I really no feel like blogging any more.........

 

btw, I still got tickets to tonights UH baseball game if you like 'em and hea's a Feel Good Friday Tip Of Da Day..........

If you text da word "Papa" to 80850, you'll get an online code for a free medium 1-topping pizza.

 

Shoots!

    BL,
    It definitely a shock! This week must be a roller coaster of emotions for you. I do hope that you stay positive and something GREAT will happen. You have the gift of making people laugh and that is why many of us keep coming back to read your blog. Please do keep on writing.
    This is part of a post on my blog. I do hope that it put a smile on your face.

    “A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, ”Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air. Well, he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. ”Now, who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air. My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
    Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but WHO WE ARE. You are special — Never forget that. ”
