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:

If you can tell me wat da heck dat means....... you win absolutely nothing but it's a Friday, my brain is fried, I need "refreshments" and it's a Friday.

Although I did have da most painful out of da blue cramp evah at 4 frickin' AM dis morning (WASSUP WIT DAT!) which left my left leg in a solid twitched state unable to straighten and lasted waaaaay longah than I thought it would as I screamed insanely inside making sure not to wake anyone. It was mind numbing pain which is still lingering like a deep tissue bruise.

Happy Feel Good Friday to da WWD! Hui as I can only imagine it being less painful than mine.

(Lurkahs included) :razz:

Not Interested

January 30th, 2015

If you don't know wat dis weekend is, you probably live undah Mauna Kea.

It's Super Bowl Sunday and frankly, I no give a crap. As a Niner Faithful, it's been choke long since we've been to da promised land - and actually won - and since then, da teams dat earned da right to play in da most glorious game evah, nevah made me want to sit down and "watch".

In fact, last year was da first time evah dat I actually sat down and watched da half time show only cause was Hawaii's own Bruno Mars performing and he rocked it!

It probably doesn't help dat da Seahawks (I call them something else but dis is a G-rated blog) are back in there as I just no like them.... except Russell Wilson who is a class act both on and off da field. Da majority of their high profile players are high makamaka-chip on their shoulder-us versus da world-no one respects us-we da most baddest okole's out there kine attitudes and they no shame to act it out either.

They openly admit to "cheating" - well, they claim if they haven't been caught or caught only a few times from da hundreds of times they've "cheated" da benefits outweigh da risk. No joke. They flat out admitted it last year and hea they are laughing their okole's to da bank in their opponents "Deflate-gate" scandal.

Actually BOTH teams have a history of "cheating" whether it be PED's (performance enhancing drugs), video taping opponents signals or just blatantly defying da NFL, I guess it is true in sports dat da benefits outweigh da risks and win at all costs and deal with da fallout latah.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Anyways, for those Seahawk and Patriot fans, good luck!

It no mattah to me who wins......... as long as it ain't Seattle. :razz:
