Wassup Wit Dat!

Sunday Best Anticipation

November 23rd, 2015

Thanksgiving week.

Don't those word's just make you giddy? It does for me. It signifies a new "season" of all kine's. It let's us 'know' dat our spirits, mood and outlook - generally speaking - improves and things change for da bettah. There's a lot more optimism but yet in da same breath more head shaking WWD! moments as well. 😛

People hold da door open for people, you hea more "Please"'s and "Thank you"'s, you witness less road rage and people lean more toward's Sunday best attitudes. And a lot more smile's, definitely more smiles.

For me, da anxiety I feel during dis time cannot be matched. There's so much excitement, anticipation (good and bad) and just bust a loose goodwill kine attitudes flowing about.

Let me count da ways:

Grindz
Friendship
Potluck
Grindz
Pah-tays
Shopping
Looking for deals
Grindz
Did I mention grindz?

There's so much going on dat during da holiday's time, WWD! traffic tends to slow down.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Nah, it's all good. People get more pressing things to do and worry about than reading up on a blog. No worries, I get it. 😀

Does Thanksgiving week mean anything to you? Wen does da "holiday's" start for you - after Thanksgiving lunch/dinnah? Wat's da first thing dat hits your mind wen you hea Thanksgiving? Or dat sentence, "Oh (insert your own expletive lol)! Thanks giving is DIS ThUrSdAy?!?"

Yeah, you nevah know?

    Once you pass 80 the holidays start to get boring especially when you have only a bachelor son. Koids do make the holidays spirit more kinder and gentle. Forgiving seems be the air and everyone feel charitable to one another. Truly the ALOHA spirit.

    I am thankful for Thanksgiving (minus the turkey and pig killing!!) and just love Christmas, too.

    Part of the reason for the slowdown is because things are getting jam-up with goings-on, so no take it personally 😀 😉

    So to you BL and da WWD Hui:

    Wishing you and yours a wonderful and meaningful Thanksgiving and a glorious Christmas and whatever else holiday you celebrate! ALOOOOOOHA! 😎

    Your Keiki are at the best age where everything is exciting, the gifts they want are larger in size and (mostly) smaller in price tag, and the most coveted gift is in limited supply (WWD?). As they get older they aren't quite as excited and the size and price of the gifts reverse themselves and now the cash is in (even more) limited supply.

    Our usually Thanksgiving ritual is having friends over for lunch & dinner on Thanksgiving and go Christmas tree shopping on black Friday. This year we're mixing it up a bit, we're having Thanksgiving lunch at a friends house and on black Friday we're driving down to Disney World.

    Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Now dat sounds like a plan! Black Friday at DW - awesome sauce! I wondah if it'll be less crowded?

    One year we roasted turkeys on 3 different days. The first turkey was too small for any left-overs to take home so the Mrs. had to roast the second for him. The 3rd was for our house guest who arrived on the weekend from Japan and when we asked if they ever had a roast turkey and they answered to the negative, we decided that we had to roast another.

    Whatevas. I just like eat 😆

    It seems like once it's Halloween... the year is a blur. Blink yo' eye and it's the New Year.

    With my new job we shut down from Christmas Eve and return after New Years Day. To make up for that down time we work 6 days/wk from after Thanksgiving until 12/23. This leaves me little time for anything else and I'm not 30 yrs old anymore (heck, not even 50!) and da body gets pretty tired.

    But 'das why... I'm pau Christmas shopping already!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and daWife and daKeiki and daBaby!


  10. Cook 'Em:

    Cooking, cooking, and more cooking! From October to January, it seems that's all I do. Between family b-days that are all between October and December, and Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, I must cook enough food to open my own restaurant. I know, my family is spoiled, but we have so many good memories. Getting old, so I don't know who will carry the torch next. Nobody else cooks, so I guess 'da family will wait until I start burning stuff before I get put out to pasture!
