Heads Up

August 15th, 2014

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:








Believe In Good

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!








LOL Paraskavedekatriaphobia

June 13th, 2014

Wat da heck is dat you ask?

Well if you look in most building elevators taller than 13 floors, you know wat I'm getting at. If you love da baker's dozen, you should have it partially figured out...

If you believe that "Jason" cannot/will not die, you one shmart buggah!

Paraskavedekatriaphobia is "the fear of Friday the 13th".

While I don't have a fear of the number "13" - especially on a Friday - I don't dismiss it as well. I'm not particularly going to walk under any ladders or break mirrors any time soon but I still "respect" da fact dat 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? I thought dat was already a gimmie on ANY given day!  :lol:

Do you have any superstitions you absolutely "fear"? Do you purposely avoid any bad luck omens like not stepping on cracks on a sidewalk or running away wen you see a black cat?

I personally don't evah bet on numbah 13, I try not whistle at night and I most definitely stay away from da numbah 6.

Silly, but bad luck seems to be all around me anyways so I'm actually not phased wen it happens but wen good luck comes about, das wen I'm surprised.

Wassup Wit Dat! yeah?

So just for today, face it head on and kick "13's" okole..... or just call in sick and blame it on paraskavedekatriaphobia.

Have a good luck Feel Good Friday da 13th! :razz:








Who Would Have Thunk

May 13th, 2014

For those who've gotten to know me, know dat I love beer. I love to drink it obviously but I'm not a one brand man. It usually depends on da situation.

If I know I'm going to be drinking a lot then I'll opt for a "low cal" beer like Bud Select 55. If just cruising, probably Miller Lite. If celebrating, any micro-brew but have been tilted to Kona Variety pack at Sam's Club cause they sell it by da case and get da kine different "flavahs". Most micro's (no, not of da ethnicity) aren't sold in cases and they are expensive so I tend to be more selective.

Wen we visited Seattle and Portland a few years ago, dat was da most I evah drank as I'm a social drinker rather than a daily drinker. Between sampler sets (three to five assorted "pupu" beers) and trying different brews every night, I had my fair share of barley in me. Dark, light, hoppy, IPA, potent (alcohol content), dry, aromatic... watevah, it was a nice palatable edumacation experience outside of da normal staple Bud's and Millers... Heine's too.

I don't drink wine and only drink spirits should da occasion call.

Who would have thunk dat beer has more uses than just for consumption? A co-worker of mine gave me a desktop daily peel away calendar featuring, of course.... beer.

As I was peeling away for today's fact, dis was da weekends "fact":




Beer shampoo! I've read elsewhere dat for dry hair, just boil da beer first to rid of da alcohol which is da ingrediment dat dries it out. I'd also recommend dat you don't use dis home brew of shampoo before heading into work. :lol:

Not be out done, there is a medical use for beer as posted by Men's Health.com:

Pass a Kidney Stone

As you've undoubtedly noticed, beer is a diuretic. It helps flush the kidneys and bladder. This can be beneficial if you're suffering from a bladder infection or kidney stone. "You can drink water or cranberry juice, but beer also works," says Larry L. Alexander, M.D., medical director of Central Florida Regional Hospital's emergency department. " It helps dilate the ureters [the tubes connecting the kidneys and bladder], which may help you pass a stone quicker and easier. Plus, the alcohol will take the edge off the pain." But don't drink beer if you're taking antibiotics or narcotic pain medications. You'll render the drugs useless and make yourself sick.

Got mice? They are mammals too so why not - also from Men's Health.com

Catch Mice

Slugs aren't the only pests with a fatal attraction to beer. According to Neil Herbst, owner of the Alley Kat Brewing Company in Edmonton, Alberta, you can also trap mice with it. He recommends setting out a few small pails or bowls of beer (his competitors', never his own), with a small ramp leading up to the lip. The mice will be attracted by the smell, hop in, drink their fill, then be unable to climb out.

Hea's anoddah "fact" of beer:









And if you still getting your olo's squeezed out from under you, memorize dis quote and God Speed... I got it taped up on my wall at work as a constant reminder to suck 'em up. :mrgreen:









So wat? You enjoy being "healthy"? Wat's your choice of brew? Or you one wine or spirit person?

In any case, let's keep people employed. :lol:
