Curious Poll

Happy Feel Good Friday!

Just curious as to what internet "stores" do you check out and/or buy regularly from? I know we probably discussed dis at one point in time but things change evah so rapidly in dis electronic day and age.

I haven't been on eBay in about a year and found myself purchasing a few small things in da past few days for a friend's wedding and boy has dat site changed.

Just purchased some things from Nike.com as well - nevah have before - for da same wedding and you know wat I found out? They have a "live chat" feature so I was asking about da return policy and stuff and decided to ask if had "kama'aina discount" and guess wat? She actually told me to hold on and in a few minutes gave me an online promo code to use for 10% off! How cool was dat - doesn't hurt to ask yeah? :razz:

Amazon is a lifesaver in terms of comparing prices locally and online as well. It's kinda mind boggling dat da majority of da time Amazon wins and I'll place an order cause it's usually free shipping but buyer beware in dat sometimes it's not sent by Amazon and you have to read da item description carefully since sometimes da reason for da lower price is dat it's an "older" version. I did notice a little link they provide though - not sure for wat specific items they do it for - but it says "Newer version found" and you click it and it takes you there. Wat was I looking at? A double stroller. :roll: Yeah, das how dis faddah rolls. :lol: And guess wat on top of dat? It was actually CHEAPER!

Wassup Wit Dat!

Anyways, enjoy da beautiful day we have today! Da sun is out, da sky is blue and we got some of our trades back! For those who are into astronomy kine stuff or just like looking at da stars, there's supposed to be da International Space Station sighting da next few days:

Fri Oct 3, 7:11 PM 5 min 56° 10 above SSW 28 above ENE
Sat Oct 4, 5:04 AM 3 min 62° 62 above SSW 10 above SSE
Sat Oct 4, 8:01 PM 2 min 15° 14 above WNW 14 above NNW
Sun Oct 5, 7:12 PM 4 min 30° 27 above WNW 10 above NNE

So no get all para's and start claiming you saw one UFO eh? :lol: I'll try my hand at night photography and see wat I can muster up.

Take a moment to enjoy life and da beauty we're surrounded by everyday but struggle to take da time to "notice" it - I stood on da side of da street while taking Da Keiki and Da Baby out for an early evening stroll a few weeks ago and paused for dis.........




Shoots! Have a grrrrrrreeeeeeaaaat Feel Good Friday everybodies!

Heads Up

I remembah probably about a year ago - probably longer cause I'm makule and always on Hawaiian time - Uncle Rodney from Midlife Crisis had shared a pic with me dat I thought I saved but now sadly can't find but it triggered a flashback as I rode into work dis morning.

Being a holiday today, I was expecting a carefree fast flowing kine of commute into work but as soon as I get on da freeway, it was a bit crowded. Not only was I heading into work an hour earlier, there really shouldn't be "slower" traffic considering. So wat was causing da slowdown? If I only had a hands-free camera (still trying to save up for a Go-Pro :sad: ) as wat I saw totally tripped me out.

It was a bright yellow with fairly bright and thick red border around and triple skegs....... if you guessed Ronald McDonald, guess again. It was a frickin' SURFBOARD!

Wassup Wit Dat!

There it was, lying upright on its side leaning against da barrier separating West and East bound traffic kinda buss up but not visibly broken up, a surfboard. How it was placed so nicely and snug against da barrier is a mystery to me cause if da person who lost it had stopped, I'm surah s/he would have just picked it up no? Unless it was causing traffic lying in da middle of da lane and someone just stopped and leaned it so oddahs could pass but in any case, it's an "odd" sight to witness on da H1 freeway just past da Pearl City on-ramp.

You can safely guesstimate dat there wasn't an accident as if there was, I'm surah it would have been picked up at dat time. Anyone seen it dis morning? Anyone wanna guess how long it'll stay there? I'm going to say it'll be there till Sunday.

Evah since watching Lethal Weapon 2, I've always had a fear dat a surfboard - or anything strapped to da roof or rack of a vehicle - would break free and come at me like a scud missile. I literally change lanes or at least drive on da side of da lane dat is not occupied by a projectile.

Wat was da weirdest thing you evah saw on da side of da road? Have you evah witnessed something flying off of a vehicle while traveling? Do you overstrap item(s) or just hope your load doesn't huli off?

Now all I can tink about is wat if da buggah was doing some Teen Wolf action? :razz: :lol:




SHOUT OUT: Just wanted to see if anybody has tennis rackets to sell? I'm trying to get my "pleasantly plump" friends to be a bit more active and we're rotating activities and tennis came up but none of us has rackets..... I know, I know - Wassup Wit Dat! like play tennis but no more equipment. :lol: But if you have one, two or four lying around collecting dust dat you not using, I'll be happy to take them off your hands as long as they not da kine wooden kine eh? :lol: Hit me up at braddahlance@gmail.com and let me know how much..... or do you accept kim chee currency? :wink: :wink:

Please bear with me as anoddah video was shared with me dat I wanted to share cause it's one of those dat makes you stop, think and wonder wat da heck has happen to our society wea da simplest manini gestures have been lost and gone? It's heading towards a point of extinction and just make us "old school" peeps say,

Wassup Wit Dat!

While it appears dat dis guy lives alone and more free to "give up things", at da same time, he didn't have to. He actually goes beyond and I'm not talking ovah da top but more than just "once" and das wat makes it so special in just ovah three minutes - now I know you got three minutes.





Ironically, dis video is actually a Thai insurance commercial which in turn is out there to make money - like all oddah insurance companies - and at times it seems like these types of companies are da exact opposite of their commercials. Even if it's a ploy to pull at your heart strings and sign up with them, it's still a message dat we as a society need to take to heart and try to keep perpetuating. In fact, they got a whole video series about being "good" - really ironic considering the current perception of insurance companies.

Have you noticed, not once did he buss out a smartphone or on a tablet. Not once was he on da internet. Not once was he checking out any social media. It was like da commercial pointed out, it's about gestures and emotions by interacting with society physically and knowing dat there are things beyond "you". It's not a bad thing to share and help and care.

If your eyes are still dry aftah watching da video, bettah check to see if you got a pulse.... or buy some insurance.

Happy Feel Good Friday!!!








Wat Da Heck Is Dat?

Anoddah Feel Good Friday and we're just about half way through 2014 already!

Wassup Wit Dat!

Time sure does fly by even wen we not thinking about it but I wasn't thinking about time wen I saw these two photo ops.

Dis first one made me chuckle and scratch my head at da same time.........






Dis container is ALWAYS in front of da Pearl City Wal-Mart loading dock area and made me wondah wat? Our fish going die? Only fish? Wat kine signage is dat wea we one container going kill fish? And wat is da "blank" one? We all going die slanting to da right? And then a movie scene from Day After Tomorrow I think flashed in mind wea da Matson ship lost its load. :shock:

Then there's dis one while walking between isles in Target.........






In case you can't/don't see da words, it says "Nasal Aspirator". Now I dunno who da heck marketed such an idea wea you would stick a vinyl hose up your baby's nose and suck it out with your own mouth but da person must be sitting pretty sucking up da moolah. :lol:

Really? Really? You would really suck up booger's? And da kid is smiling??

Wassup Wit Dat!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Have grrrrreeeeeat Feel Good Friday!
