In da last blog, a fairly newcomer to WWD!, Waikapu, had dis to say (and you tink I no read EVERY single comment eh? ):
Sheesh brah nothing better to do than dump on the Super Bowl? I know this your column theme - grumble, grumble, grumble - but I feel sorry for you always looking for things to complain about. Life is short bruddah. Live and let live. Smell the roses. Lighten up. See the glass as half full. Take medication if it's needed.
Wow........ WASSUP WIT DAT!
Have YOU taken YOUR meds? Sensitive are we? Are you da "My $h!t No St!nk" poster from a couple blogs ago? (Click hea to check out Who You are)
Who's dumping on da Super Bowl? I simply stated dat I didn't care to watch it nor was interested in either team since my Niners weren't in it. Da only interest I had was wanting Seattle to lose (which I did win a pretty hefty wager). Wow, if I was dumping on da Super Bowl, da previous WWD! blogs must be mass hysteria.
Do I have to watch it? Is it wrong for me to even say I'm not watching it? Unrealz.
And no need feel sorry for me but if it makes YOU feel bettah, by all means continue to do so as contrary to belief, I love to spread da Aloha. And yes, like da title suggests, dis blog theme IS about da "grumbling" oddahwise I must be one confused exotic dancer.
If you actually was a consistent reader, you'd know dat I'm da pidgin speaking old school sarcastically comical Korean local boy paradoxical version of "glass half empty" and far from da complaining just to complain type. If you spent da time trying to understand wat my "rants" are about, you'd clearly see dat I have a passion to rebel against society's declining view towards decent morals and values.
I'll speak up wen something is wrong, I'll stand up for wat's right as much as I can and I definitely won't go quietly into da night relying on my "meds". Das wat Wassup Wit Dat! is all about! It's about "complaining" about things dat are "wrong" and wat we as a society could/should be doing. It's not about blindly complaining about anything and everything hence not having EVERY single WWD! being posted. I believe there are choke oddahs who feel/see dat there are changes to be made thus enjoy reading WWD!.
And I couldn't agree with you more dat life is short - too damn short - and maybe das why WWD! has been hanging around for so long cause most people dat read WWD! must think, "geez, I can't be worse off than BL" - well, I'm surah more colorful adjectives are used. My experiences aren't isolated or unique although Da WWD! Hui may concur it is more frequent than da norm and I don't refute dat. Da difference is dat I'll share it - along with my thoughts - and act through it instead of just "talking" about it.
Your "opinion" of me is da classic example of people dat come to conclusions and da know da "whole story" by only reading a couple of pages type. I'm actually a very happy go lucky guy despite all da "complaining". I'm rarely down for long and a laugh or smile is part of my natural make up. I'm confident dat those who know, met and/or pah-tay'd with me can attest to dat.
To put some perspective on dis, I was recently passed ovah a promotion which many of my co-workers - including my current supervisor and oddah superiors - expressed dat I was perfect for based on my experience and work ethic. The higher up's decided to hire outside. Am I complaining about dat decision? Nope. I'm still da "same person" carrying on without reservation but with more determination to bettah myself. I've already been joked with dat I do my job too well so they can't replace me and I think das hilarious. Surah I'm disappointed but I smelled da roses and da loco moco smells bettah.
Many readers have - and will - post dat it's not worth da time and effort to respond to things like dis but das wea I know I AM different cause since wen has it been ok to just "take it"? I'm as stubborn as a kim chee stain so wen someone attacks my character, you bettah be prepared for some spice to be thrown back..... with da lid off.
And how ironic is it dat you preach to me about "complaining" wen you just did with your own post? I am not judging you as you have me, but wen you do judge someone, be fair about it. As I've said countless times to all those whose $h!t No St!nk, you no like da blog, no read 'den. If it puts you in a salty mood, left click to a different politically correct blog - I ain't forcing you to read WWD! and by all means, there is no need to diss a blog wen there is no reason to.
Am I sensitive?
Hell frick yeah! I'm passionate about everything I do cause if I don't have da passion for it, I won't do it - kinda like dis blog. Once da "life" is gone, I'll be done with it.
I recently heard a quote dat I instantly fell in love with........
If you ain't feelin', you ain't livin'.......
