April's Christmas

April 3rd, 2015

I nevah fully realize dat Easter is exactly like........ Christmas.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Hea's da similarities dat I came up in about a minute (rogah, das da limit of my attention span unless you sharing your beea in which case you have my undivided attention :mrgreen: ). Unbelievably there's a counterpart to each in relation to da "celebration":

Christmas you got da reindeer. Easter you got da bunny.
Christmas you got da snow. Easter you got da rain.
Christmas you got Charlie Brown. Easter you got Charlton Heston.
Christmas you got turkey. Easter you got da ham. *** ok, usually both
Christmas is mostly red. Easter is pink(?). *** Both use choke colors
Christmas you get presents you wish for. Easter you get presents you no ask for.
Christmas you got cookies. Easter you got eggs.
Christmas you spock out da lights. Easter you hunt for "prizes".
Christmas you one scrooge. Easter you hard boiled. :lol:

Got any more to add?

My brain is fried but it's a Feel Good Fryday so stay sunny side up - chillax and no let your yolk run. Hop to it and take kea watevah you gotta do today and hopefully you no get too egghausted. If dis not payday and you get one goose egg in your wallet, no shell out kala from your nest egg for Easter baskets. Most definitely no need walk on eggshells but if you evah get egg on your face cause you stay scrambled, no be hard boiled. Enjoy da next few days with your friends and ohana and hope you have an eggshellent Easter!

You Worried?

March 13th, 2015

I've always wondered who da heck makes up superstitions/lores dat we've grown accustomed to. Do they just sit around and shotgun beers or maybe they just had a bad batch of pakalolo - who knows. :roll:

Today is Friday da 13th - in case you nevah know - and while I've nevah been freaked out about it, apparently choke people are. Amazingly enough there's even a name for it, Paraskavedekatriaphobia, which is "the fear of Friday the 13th".

While just da number "13" doesn't strike fear into me, I don't dismiss it as well. I won't bet against it, I'll nevah wear a jersey printed on it and I'm just glad da dice at da crap tables in Vegas only goes up to 12. I'm not especially going to walk under any ladders or break mirrors but I still "respect" da fact that it's unlucky.

As quoted from Wikipedia:

According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day.

Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. "It's been estimated that [US]$800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day".[5]

Despite this, representatives for both Delta and Continental Airlines say that their airlines don't suffer from any noticeable drop in travel on those Fridays.[13]

17 to 21 million people don't even wanna get out of bed cause of Friday the 13th?

Wassap Wit Dat!

I thought that was already a gimmie on ANY given day! :lol:

And da thought that da economy is hit $800 or 900 million on this "special day" is kinda shocking if anything. And, really, wen da heck would ANY airline say NOT to travel? :roll:

Are there any superstitions you absolutely "fear"? Do you purposely avoid any bad luck omens - black cats, cracks on da sidewalk, whistling at night? Are you afraid of anything? Off tangent a little, but wat's da scariest movie you've evah saw?

FGF will always trump Friday da 13th....... well, untill WWD! rolls around. :grin:

Have a grrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeat weekend!


March 6th, 2015

In a blink of an eye, you can say dat things can change for da bettah or worse leaving us to say, "Wassup Wit Dat!" and either shake it off or dwell on it a bit.

I'm both.

I'll express my passion whether it be good or bad and then shake it off like one Tahitian dancer's hips. I'm not one to carry da negative chi or have it weigh down on me but conversely wen it's a high, I like to ride it for as long as I possibly can.

Each day at work I'm fortunate enough to sneak a peek and woo-saa as I watch da world hustle and bustle by. Wednesday's view was interesting in da aftermath of morning ua (rain) casting da faintest glow of a rainbow ovah one of Hawai'i nei's state landmarks.

Days li'dat make you contemplate and appreciate da little things da world has to offer. Then I couldn't help but to gaze for awhile today's view.......

So for today's Feel Good Friday message, say Aaaaaloooooooooha to anything dat may be weighing heavily on your shoulders even if you know dat it'll be back. Exhale deeply and find your woo-saa moment and go hug somebody for a little - albeit temporary - pick me up as we all need dat once in awhile. Take a moment, literally, and just smile or laugh even if for a second or two. Text - or call - a loved one (or a friend in need) and say something spontaneous. No scade to spread a little Aloha and pay it forward - be da rock to start da ripple.

Have a grrrrrreeeeeeaaaat Feel Good Friday!

Quick Poll - Valentine's

February 13th, 2015

Da only people who are ecstatic dat Valentine's falls on a Saturday are restaurants, stores and destination locations........ oh yeah, and procrastinators.

Back in da hannah-battah dayz, it was about giving heart shaped candies and a "do you like _______? Yes/No" lettah passed on by a friend to anoddah friend to da soon to be exposed crush. It really made or broke your heart which now wen I think about it is pretty brutal.

Hea's a day wea "love" is supposed to be shared and it's da main focal theme but it's really a day - or days - of anticipation, agony and for many I would assume, heartbreak.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Valentine's actually kinda sucks if you're a kid on da "broken" end. LOL

Do you still "celebrate" Valentine's? Are you da standard flowers and/or candies or are you da one to try and think of something different and unique every year? Is dis da only day/time da Casanova or Rico Suave comes out? Wat was da best - and worst - Valentine's you had if you brave to share?

I gotta say though dat Valentine's is pretty much a mood breaker for guys cause if we "mess up", it's a long ways away till Christmas but I've always wanted to ask any wahine's out there - do YOU stress out about Valentine's as much as us guys do? Do you actually get a "gift" for your man?

It must suck if you one guy and was born on Valentine's yeah? How would you celebrate it - by getting your oddah half something? On a day for "you", you have to get something special for your significant oddah? :razz: :lol:

And being born a few days earlier doesn't help either cause now if my oddah half does something nice for me on by b-day, then she sets da bar on wat I need to do for Valentine's..... ai-goo, no can win. LOL

Have great Feel Good Friday and a "successful" Valentine's. :razz:
