Have you ever "wasted" a day?

Today it feels like a BIG one!

Aftah waking up a bit late and having barely moved from the couch the past seven hours going on watching my third movie, I've been glancing through da windows and noticing how gorgeous of a day it's been.

But yet I'm still inside.... Wassup Wit Dat!

Well, between some house work and watching Da Baby, I guess my life has been regulated to house arrest.

Don't you just hate a "wasted" day? Well, I hope you're out and about enjoying the day I wasn't able to.........

Sharing Some Good News

Just wanted to share a couple of things on this Feel Good Friday...........

We just got word that after a fifth surgery in four months, Drew Iida is on his tough road to recovery. Unfortunately because there aren't any neuro rehabilitation centers for children here in Hawaii, they're at the Phoenix Children's Hospital in Arizona. It even caught the attention of a NFL superstar - who happens to be here for the Pro Bowl - Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals. He is a top class act on the field and the Iida's are grateful that he's one off the field as well as he's offered to help in various ways and even visited them a few times in Arizona.

Drew is able to move a bit and breathe on his own which are promising signs of a successful recovery.

A hugemongeous shout out does go out to Bryant Moniz for getting the national publicity out even during the turbulent Warrior Football season.

There was a segment on Hawaii News Now and an article in The Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Donations are still being accepted at American Savings Bank under the "Pray For Drew" account as costs for his medical care escalates. The same offer goes as the first time, get a custom t-shirt designed by me just by mentioning that you donated. No proof necessary, it's an honor system thing.

I didn't forget the two people I owe t-shirts to as I've been a bit tied up but will get them out real soon.




On another cheerful note, please help me congratulate the engagement of one of my closest friends, Alan, to his long time girlfriend Keri Ann. He finally popped the question and she reluctantly accepted.

Jus' joke. She was estactic.

They make a fine couple and complement each other perfectly. Trust me Alan, we all knew she was "da one" before you did.







Anybody else got any FGF news to share? Well, go on 'den! :grin:

No Way It's A Sign.... Right?

Yesterday morning on the way into work I was feeling pretty darn good.

It was a Feel Good Friday, the vog had passed, the clouds were gone and the air was cool and crisp. I actually woke up on time even aftah having only three hours of sleep and traffic was moving bettah than normal. I jumped in the zip lane - as I do every morning - and eventually the smooth sailing came to a stop as I rolled into a red light ahead and wat did I stop right behind?







Wassup Wit Dat!

Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, I roll up to dis. I've nevah evah seen a New York Giants stickah or emblem on any vehicle my whole life. I've seen fellow 49ers, Packers, Raiders and even da Bucs... but nevah the Giants.

Ooooooh dat just made my my FGF turn a hurricanish 180!

Since we were in da zip lane, I couldn't pass him since there's only one lane so I tailed dat truck to da end and constantly flashed my highlights to annoy da heck out of him. Once da zip lane ended and I got a chance to get next to him near town, I jumped off da bike and head butted da rear window and yelled "NINERS ARE GOING TO KICK YOUR $#@%!&* OKOLE!"

Ok, ok. So dat nevah happen but wen I did pull up next to HER near town there were only TWO people in da truck.

So wat's worse? Dat she was a Giants fan or dat they were jerks for using da zip lane illegally?

Well, it is da playoffs...............








Oh No You Didn't!

Is it just me or does it seem like people in "respected" positions just don't appear respected more?

Could it be their looks? Cause I swear some just "look" lolo. Does their position matter? Da higher up you are, da more intellectual you should be - or not. Or could it be just that we have to lower da bar as to what we should "expect" certain people/positions to be?

If you haven't heard by now, da second in command of The United States of America had a major (imho) gaffe a couple nights ago. Now considering he's right behind the most powerful person in da world, it doesn't bode well to be in da national news dinging both reputation and stature of those associated with da Presidency..

But then again when you don't make the top 70 list of the World's Most Powerful People - according to Forbes.com - and even the creator of FaceBook is ninth, I guess there really isn't much to get excited about Vice-President Joe Biden unless we can poke fun at him. Check out these classic moments:

August 2008: He also mixed up Barack Obama’s name at his first campaign rally with the president, introducing him as: 'A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!'

September 2008: After he was named the vice presidential nominee, he addressed a crowd in Nashua, New Hampshire, questioning how he beat out Hillary Clinton: 'Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America,' he said in New Hampshire. 'Quite frankly it might have been a better pick than me.'

September 2008: During a political rally in Missouri, he urged wheelchair-bound state senator Chuck Graham to rise and be recognised, saying: 'Stand up, Chuck, let 'em see ya.' Realizing his mistake, he said: ‘Oh, God love you… what am I talking about?’

October 2008: Speaking in Athens, Ohio about John McCain's economic strategy, he said: 'Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.'

March 2010: Mr Biden said 'God rest her soul' in reference to the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen. Mr Cowen's mother is alive; his father had died. Realising his misstep, he corrected with: 'God bless her soul'.

March 2010: He dropped the F-bomb during the signing of the administration’s historic health reforms, apparently unaware that the microphones would catch him out when he whispered into the President’s ear immediately before the announcement, declaring: 'This is a big f****** deal!'

December 2010: During the swearing in of a Republican Senator Mark Kirk in Congress, Biden told the Capitol Hill newcomer to put that hand on the Bible and raise his left. According to the congressional rulebook, it should have been the other way round.

So wat's his latest? In a packed room at a private fundraiser in San Francisco, he predicted the Giant's would go to the Super Bowl.

WAAAT? WASSUP WIT DAT!

Uncle, you know wea you stay? You stay in NINER country and if it wasn't for da Secret Service armed and ready, you wouldn't have made it out alive.

But catching his mistake aftah perplexed boos erupted from da crowd, VP Biden recovered by explaining he had confused the New York football Giants for the San Francisco's baseball Giants and promptly predicted a 49er victory.

You can add one more to da gaffe list now.

I guess das why I'm fine with being a blue-collar peon so wen I buss' out da pidgin or say something stupid...... it's "ok". But da smartest thing I can say without any doubt or confusion is,

GO SAN FRANCISCO................... 49ERS! :razz:

And no need pay me $10,000 a seat to hear dat - although I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to.
