Back in da day - ok, a handful of years ago - there was a local kine game quiz dat was brought to my attention and with permission from da creator Tracy Nishibun, I was sharing them with Da WWD! Hui. I haven't heard or seen new ones but I'm surah they are out there.

I'll have to dig through da archives but hea's one to get you started.

CLICK HEA FOR DA NINTH ISLAND QUIZ

You probably seen 'em at least once by now but always fun to see if you can get 'em all again yeah? FYI - da spelling is kinda technical so if you misspell it, no panic eh.

Geez, I get so much reviews to post too (WWD!) but just don't have da time right now so stay tuned. I'll try and post one a week for da next few weeks cause I starting to fo'get wat happened already so until then, have fun with da quiz and let us know wat you stuck on if you no get 'em all.

Hey, it's Hump Day Wednesday and we all need something to get us ovah da hump. Plus I stay itchin' for a long ovahdue trip back to da 9th island..... anybody get buddy passes? :wink: :wink:

Bettah Not Lose It

July 29th, 2014

In da last blog, I showed a picture of dis:







Da closest guess was by M noting, "you used your phone".

Very close but no cigar.... da two malahini used their phone as I mentioned I witnessed them. :razz:

Wat I observed them do was kinda funny yet sad yet scary. They literally were trying to pay with their phone and no, there's no app for dat.

If you noticed the screen dat LOOKS like a phone above the dollar bill slot, not the small screen but da BIG one, they were holding up da back of their phone against da screen as to "transfer" information.

Well I gotta say actually dat we're behind of da times in terms of utilizing da full capabilities of today's technology. I remembah reading waaaaaaaay back in da day wen picture phones were extremely limited and da screens were still green - or orange - and still flashed "digital" numbahs, dat in Germany, they were rocking their Nokia's and their ability to use their phones to pay vending machines and at select vendors for merchandise.

About 15 years latah, it is growing hea now but not so much wea you can use your phone directly per say but, yes, there are apps dat will "record" your gift cards wea you don't have to have it physically but just "show/scan" your phone so you always have it instead of lugging around all dat plastic or even forgetting it at home and feeling all sick cause you knew you had a gift card but totally forgot about it.

Wassup Wit Dat!

I'm surah there's a merchant or two dat is trying out da pay by phone method like da soda machine but I can only imagine da security measures in da U.S. preventing da full blown ability to do so. In contrast, it has been easier to use your phone to ACCEPT payment though via Square or Intuit or da half dozen or so makers willing to take a cut for processing. How much more safer is dat? Or even now, paying ANYONE via Paypal is second nature to millions of people.

Back to da soda machine. I felt sorry for those two cause it was an EXTREMELY humid day dat day and they looked like they really wanted dat drink. Whether they were just trying to get a free drink from da advertisement or not, they held up their phone to da screen a few times and sadly, no soda. Wat made it more difficult was da screen was angled in such a way dat it was difficult to read especially with da glaring sun behind them so they did wat any oddah normally parched person would do........ they kept trying! :lol:

They held their phone dis way and dat. Higher. Lower. Landscape. Portrait. Hovered it. Pressed it. Angle down. Angle up. Angle left. Angle right.

It was almost as if they were getting punked.

As Da Wife was giving me da "hurry your okole up" look, it dawned on me dat wen - and it is wen, not if - da day comes wen our phones will replace our wallets, will people still be losing their phones? You go into ANY wireless carrier store and there will be at least one person buying a new phone cause they lost it - will dat be da case knowing dat you got your ID, "money", gift cards, contacts etc stored away all on a slimmer than a toothpick device dat you "upgrade" every few years?

Now I know some of you will not succumb to da "cool phone" genre but wat if it offered you all da perks of having a wallet but not carrying one - would you fall into da dark side? Wat do you tink about being able to pay with your phone? Wat do you tink about going to craft fairs and seeing your favorite goodie vendor swiping your card into THEIR phone or tablet? Why is it easier to see your card swiped into a strangers phone but not using your own phone to pay? Are/Would you be willing to forego carrying a wallet in lieu of just your phone?

Hmmmmmmm........ just food for thought today as you desperately search for your checkbook. :grin:

Functional Eye Lids.... Amen!

If ya got some, send 'em ovah pronto.

I'm literally sitting at my desk bobbing my head as if I was Rocky Balboa against Clubber Lang. I've already sent three emails that were not only fragments but incomplete with hanging sentences.

Wassup Wit Dat!

Boy do I feel like an incoherent idiot right now. Well, a very heavy eye-lidded bobble head action kine incoherent idiot to be more specific.

I'm going on five hours sleep going into 36+ hours all for wat? Da Baby's first luau next week! I just completed a couple of rush jobs to earn some moo-lah to help cut down on da cost and while it's not making a dent, it's slowly chipping away at it.

Do you know how many times I've edited dis blog entry?? Thank goodness we got an endless supply of coffee and tea around hea. :razz:

How long have you gone without sleep? Do you try and do anything special to avoid da dreaded bob and weave head shake? Just remembered dat Sharper Image (are they still around??) has dis ear plug dat you wear and it senses wen you "dip" then plays a shrilling sound to wake your okole up. Believe it or not it was marketed for those who are on da road a lot. :shock:

I got one das free and you most definitely WILL NOT get trouble for falling asleep at work but you have to be "setup" oddahwise not going work.

First, you put your hands together like you're praying with your elbows on your desk. Get your elbows comfortable and lower your head (forehead) on your clasped hands. Now go to sleep. If anybody tries to wake you up or you slip off your hands waking yourself up all you gotta do is............ say "Amen."

Since religion is such a touchy subject and our First Amendment right, you got your bases covered.

But you'll definitely be out if you snore.... or drool. :lol:

Silver Pockets Full

July 22nd, 2014

It's kinda funny how there are people dat follow astrological Feng Shui methodologies and try and "balance" - and avoid - everything they can to achieve harmony.

Dis month is especially special since it consists of 5 Tuesday's, 5 Wednesday's and 5 Thursday's and it happens every 823 years coining da alleged Chinee proverb, Silver Pockets Full!

Wassup Wit Dat!

Well if you believe dat it happens every 823 years, I got some undeveloped land in Kalapana I can let go to you for real cheap and you don't have to wait that long. :lol:

Per Snopes.com:

As for the Silver Pockets Full aka "money bags", while there is a "money bag" in Chinese feng shui, it's an actual cloth bag carried by the Happiness Buddha. To make your own cash-attracting feng shui "money bag," use a colored ribbon to tie nine coins into a square of cloth (both preferably red), then place your "money bag" on or near whichever spot in the house where money is either received or generated. (In other words, if your paycheck comes by mail, place it where you put incoming letters and packages; if your money comes via computer notification of a deposit to an online account, put it near your hard drive.)

But it's a Wop Yo' Jaws moment as dis "phenomenon" has already happened and will continue to happen every year but just rotating days. Dis month is Tue, Wed, Thu. Next month is Fri, Sat, Sun. October is Wed, Thu, Fri. December is Mon, Tue, Wed........ looks like da odds of Money Bag Claus showing up is as much as Santa Claus.

Do you have or do any Feng Shui? Do you have any "superstitions" you follow occasionally? How's your harmonious balance and is your chi centered?

Not your chi chi.
