Worst Yet?

My recent memory can't evah recall a summer like dis wea it's been soooo humid for choke long periods of time. We not talking about a day or two or three but going on weeks at a time of muggy, sauna-like, arm pit staining, pants sticking to your inner thigh kine of weather. And let's not fo'get about having to feel like needing to change your underwear if you've dared walking around outside for anything ovah five minutes.

It's a good thing we surrounded by watah but even then, it's just a temporary fix as you can't stay in there forevah. Last week in conversation, a few people brought up da weather and I asked them wat they were doing to stay cool as it was ridiculously unbearable. Most of them said blasting their fans on full, heading to da mall or theaters and it didn't mattah if it costed them money but anywea with a/c would top da list in a hurry.

Obviously all logical choices but I threw something at them they all were surprised to hear. I asked, have you drank any hot tea?

Wassup Wit Dat!

It's actually a debatable method but think about. In all da movies situated in scorching areas like da Middle East or India, their drink of choice - even on an insanely hot day - is hot tea. Da premise in a nutshell is dat there are these nerves in our tongue and mouth which wen drinking da hot liquids, sends signals to your body to cool off by.... sweating.

Would I drink hot tea on a hot day? I ain't dat nuts but I can only assume everyone's natural instinct to grab a cupful of ice and pour their favorite non-heated beverage in.

Wat have you done to cool down: shave ice, cold drinks, Ice Palace? Have you been able to sleep well or do you have multiple fans on you? Have you changed your sheets or at least your pillow case aftah having perspired like Akaka Falls? Does anybody drink hot liquids on a hot day? Kinda same thing like going to eat saimin on sweltering days too no?

How many of you 'enjoy' heading into work just cause get a/c now? :lol:

I would, but ours is pretty weak.... I got two fans though - of which only one works! :cry:

People Just Don't Like You

Banks must tink I'm either going to rob them or be of da criminal element cause most times I go in there, I get da "treatment".

Well, not in a bad way but if I not going out to wea I gotta wea nice kine clothes, I'm usually wearing shorts, t-shirt, slippahs and a hat or visor. Today wasn't any different... but was.

Standing in line at the Hawaii USA FCU in Aiea, I watch people - as I normally do anywea - and wait my turn listening for, "next in line please".

TELLER: How can I help you today? (Or something to that effect)
BL: I need to make a deposit please. (give her my account number and ID)
TELLER: (Starts to enter da deposit then gives me a quick side eye glance) Could you please remove your hat?
BL: Sure (although I was wearing a plain Oakley visor)...... but you didn't ask the guy you just helped to remove his.
TELLER: I didn't help anyone with a hat.
BL: You just helped him two people ago not more than five minutes before. He was wearing a big camouflage sun hat da kine hunters or da military kine guys wear with the cinch cord hanging down. ** saying to myself - "maybe was TOO camouflage"** :roll:
TELLER: I didn't notice. I'm usually pretty good about that.
BL: Really? You didn't notice his huge hat? I'm just asking to be fair is all.
TELLER: Sorry, guess I missed it..... is there anything else I can do for you?

Really? Not even I'm sorry but just sorry dat you missed it?

Wassup Wit Dat!

I totally get banks asking to remove your hat and sunglasses and I do my best to accommodate before reaching da teller by putting my shades on my head, tilt my hat a little higher so my face is CLEARLY visible and look at several cameras directly and smile (yes, I really do dat) but really, why should I remove my hat? It's part of my dress, just like how wahines wear accessories, but until they upgrade their stupid cameras, it doesn't mattah cause you can nevah see da face clearly anyways!

How many times have they shown da person robbing a bank and you can't even tell if it was your dog sliding a note to da teller demanding money? In dis day and age of technology, you should be able to count how many white hairs are on your head from all their cameras in da bank yet alone be able to see a non-pixelated photo of a robber.

As I hop into da car and tell Da Wife wat just happened, she puts it simply..........

"Peole just don't like you".

Geez, thanks Babe. :lol:








Lucrative

Last night Da Keiki shows me a receipt her teacher sent home with her and me working in Finance I gravitate towards da numbahs and I couldn't help but do a rough calculation: numbah of students times da amount we pay every month = HOLY GUACAMOLE! Cha-ching!

But of course get all da kine logistics of salaries, rent, insurance, blah blah but da net amount, I'm guesstimating, is still high. Then I was tinking about da amount we pay for Da Baby's sitter and WHOA! Das a good "net amount" too!

Sometime I wondah wat kine of businesses make da most money? Besides da kine "professionals" dat have gone to school for uku-million years like lawyers and doctors, who makes a considerable amount of money per hour? In da Pearl City Wal-Mart area near Hawaii USA Federal Credit Union, there are impromptu "vendors" which I'm surah are there illegally but no one has "complained" so they continue to set up shop there tents, chairs, road signs and all.

Anybody who drives da "Wal-Mart" road knows these people all too well. Da two who are there religiously every weekend are da "cold li-hing mango lady" and da "huli-huli chicken guy" (outdoor barbeque pit, cooler and all!). There's a third dat is there frequently as well, "pastele and rice". Once in awhile there would be "challengers" taking up prime City & County space like a "homemade toy guy", "puppy sale" or some kine of fundraising attempt.

No rent, no overhead....... hmmm, sounds pretty lucrative - or at least profitable enough to do it - if you don't mind da time you spend doing it.

Now get these "steam car wash dudes" in Pearl City and Aiea and I can't even imagine 1) having steam to wash da car and 2) dat it would be a money maker considering there are two to three people dat has to split da fee. I would tink you'd have to average three to four vehicles an hour just to pay for da labor and four to five an hour just to buy a plate lunch aftah dat.

I once heard dat those hot dog vendors like Woody's are actually one of THE most lucrative businesses out there making easily into da six-figure mark annually. Da hotdogs aren't cheap but six-figures annually off of a processed meat? :lol: :shock:

Wassup Wit Dat!

Wat kine of low-key businesses have you seen dat you wondah if it's lucrative or not? Wat street vendors are "regulahs"? Have you evah pulled ovah to buy anything from them?

If you see a vertically challenged, wise-okole, round is a shape, pidgin speaking Korean selling kim chee on da side of da road in Pearl City............. saying "Wassup Wit Dat!" is da secret code for Kama'aina discount. :lol:

Wat da heck happen to our 'Bows dis week?

Da Wahine lose in 5 to an unranked team we should have beat. Da Rainbow Warrior football team not even close to being remotely in da same category as "average" aftah losing their seventh straight.

Wassup Wit Dat!

I'm hoping for at least a single win before the season is pau and I guess we can now kiss hosting volleyball regionals here aloha.

I'm tired and need a drink... or a nap hoping dat wen I wake up dis has all been a bad dream.
