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:








Poop Out Of Luck

July 1st initiated da plastic bag ban on Oahu - were you prepared?

Not sure how big it is on da mainland but hea in Hawai'i, plastic bags are like rubbah slippahs - you nevah are without it and get choke uses for it.

C'mon, us kama'aina are a resourceful bunch and while we may lag behind a little before technological advances hit da islands, we do with wat we got and I believe we do it well.

I think especially if you have any keiki, you probably don't leave da house without at least ONE plastic bag whether it be your home lunch, shoes, clothes, fruit from da tree, omiyage or watevah can literally fit in there.

We use 'em in bathroom trash cans, as something to dump spoiled food in and infamously to pick up pet poop.

Wat oddah uses are there? Wat else have you used it for?

And let's not forget those who actually spend da time to FOLD them into da triangle!

Wassup Wit Dat! :lol:

Not dat there's anything wrong with dat but I actually use one of da bags to hold ALL da oddah bags and just shove it in there. Da Wife folds them neatly and throws 'em inside da huge gallon sized Ziploc's. Now das a local kine debate for da ages.

And how come not all da plastic bags are banned? I'm totally for "saving da planet" but at da grocery stores you still got da plastic bags for your fruits, vegetables and meats - are those 'special' bags dat disintegrate bettah or something? And I nevah check at da last Sam's run but I wondah if they still sell plastic bags by da case dat street vendors use?

And I no eat out often but are they still using plastic bags? I can only imagine how many people would drop their plate lunches since they slip and slide on top of each oddah or how many times da gravy, sauce or dressing would ooze out onto your shirt or da floor of your ride?

I wondah if dis is a back end approach to help curb da homeless 'property' as they are da most visible users of plastic bags? Hmmmm.....

Anybody know wat da 'final' law states about plastic bags? I wondah if da City Council eventually will pass an ordinance to issue fines if plastic bags are seen in public?

Da Wife was already prepared for da 'switch' and sewed her own bags along with ones we've already had (sorry, forgot to take da pics) but now I gotta see if someone going figgah out how to fold da brown paper bags. :lol:

Do I see a come back on paper bag book covers for textbooks? :grin: Does dis generation even know about dat old school style?

I guess das for a latah blog.

*** SHOUT OUT *** Mahalos to all who shared in celebrating Da Wife and I's anniversary by posting in da last blog. We even got a couple of Lurkah's to come out! :grin:

Is Dis How It Really Is?

July 7th, 2015
By

My apologies for da hiatus - been a pretty eye opening few weeks with all das been going on around me but I couldn't forget about today.

Wat is today? Well, it's da one day of da year dat I need to pay homage and give respect to da only oddah person dat understands me - well enough of me to survive - and can literally slap me upside da head wen need be. She puts me in my place even aftah my K-drama goes full blown. She is da land dat my ocean rises and falls to. She is Da Wife.

As I looked back at da few blogs before (see below if you're bored), I can really see a 'transformation' of sorts. Naturally da love is still there, well, transformed. Our lives have been relatively da same, aftah transformation. Basically, evolution nevah stops evolving so we both have made adaptations to our marriage especially once Da Keiki and Da Baby came along - things sure did shake up a bit as 'our' lives have now become 'their' lives.

But like any oddah 'survivable' marriage, you must have love, loyalty, trust and faith. And then there's things like being a good cook or handyman or making onolicious kim chee which are bonus. :lol:

While I do share my WWD! moments hea on da blog - trust me, we had a TON of them on our wedding day/night - Da Wife has been da antibiotic to da incurable syndrome dat flows through my veins.

Happy 8th Anniversary Babe! Da ride has just begun and I'm riding dis wave till da very end no mattah how much we may 'transform'..... physically as well. :grin:


Made It Through One

Dang..... Almost Forgot

Wood Or Silverware

Da Long Haul
*** Kinda interesting to see how Da WWD! Hui posters has 'transformed' during years too ***

Deal*****

June 15th, 2015
By

Don't you hate it wen da "fine print" is too fine? I mean really, who wants to read da fine print wen da only people who can read them are ants?

But wat about between people? Does da rules change? Are there any 'rules' - understood or unwritten - dat most people follow?

Check out a craigslist ad I responded to which had me mixed in with stupidity, rudeness, desperation, unpredictability, irritation and all da anxieties dat comes with a "deal". Da following actual email 'conversations' spread across a week are pretty long but each interaction sets up da tone for da next........

[Saturday} BL:
Howzit! Call it at $20 and consider it a done deal.
}
}
[Sunday] Seller:
Deal! Available today? I live near nuuanu
}
}
[Monday] BL:
Sorry for getting back to you so late. Do you happen to work in town? I can swing by during lunch time or after work sometime this week. Let me know.
Mahalo,
Lance XXX-XXXX
}
}
[Monday] Seller:
I don't take a lunch break but could meet you after work during the week. I get off usually around 4pm
}
}
[Monday] BL:
I'm off at 5pm but if you're able to swing by ********, I can run downstairs or meet you somewhere close by - whatever works for you.
Mahalo,
Lance XXX-XXXX
}
}
[Wednesday] BL:
Hey Rachel,
Can you please let me know if you're still interested in selling the chips? Please text me - XXX-XXXX
Mahalo,
Lance
}
}
[Thursday] BL:
Hey Rachel,
Can you please let me know if you're still interested in selling the chips? I have a game Saturday night and could really use them. Please text me - XXX-XXXX
Mahalo,
Lance
}
}
[Friday] Seller:
Hey sorry I got another offer for 30 but they guy is supposed to get back to me today. I'll let you know asap
}
}
[Friday] BL:
Yes please. Text me should the other guy not show but that's pretty uncool to tell me that we had a deal, tell me that we'll meet up this week "asap" and now you have someone you accepted an offer of $30 with and will let me know should THAT deal fall through, you'll then contact me "asap" like how you said you would earlier.

I should be leaving town around 6:15pm heading Ewa bound so can swing by then. If I don't get a TEXT from you by then, I'll look elsewhere.

Lance XXX-XXXX
}
}
[Friday] Seller:
I'm sorry, but that's what Or Best Offer means...didn't hear from him today so if your off tomorrow around 3pm I should be home
}
}
[Friday] BL:
So what does "deal" mean then? In contractual terms, we made a binding legal agreement where you offered a product, I proposed a price, you accepted. That's the legal essence of "deal". So how can I be sure that you're on the up and up for tomorrow then? Between now and then someone could offer $100 and you're obviously going to renege our "deal" should that happen. What assurances do I have to arrange my schedule to meet you tomorrow??
}
}
[Saturday] Seller:
I have a short window today after work around 3pm if you'd still like the chips. I can meet somewhere near liliha bakery.
}
}
[Saturday] BL:
I can be at Liliha Bakery at 3pm. I'll be in a white Toyota Tacoma. TEXT me when you're there.
}
}
[Saturday] Seller:
Hey I got off early. I'm home already. We can still meet at 3 or anytime earlier if you'd like

WASSUP WIT DAT!

I was tripping out! Dis wahine was in some oddah world and I just couldn't believe dat someone would/could say 'deal' then string you along, rope-a-dope you and then not even bat an eye or even mutter an apology. Had it not been for my desperation, I would have been long gone from dis whacked up 'deal'.

Sadly, I'm still one of those dat firmly believes dat your "word is stronger than oak" so even though it is a 'buyer beware' market between people, I shouldn't be surprised any dat it is commonplace to get burned or jacked in a person to person 'deal'.

Unrealz how she couldn't text me dat she found someone else and no, da ad nevah evah mentioned - fine print or oddahwise - "Or Best Offer" so aftah dat email I knew she wasn't up and up.

Two can play dis game so no, I didn't accommodate her earlier meet time. In fact, I was contemplating on saying let's meet and no show up. :idea: Wen I got there, I was spocking out da parking lot, saw her and made her wait cause she still nevah like text dat she was there so I played dumb like how was I supposed to know she was there? :razz:

The price was still wat I offered, da chips were practically new (heavyweight casino style) and I made her sweat it out while I sat in my truck with da a/c on 'waiting' for me.

I guess I couldn't help but add to da 'deal' too. :lol:








Stand Or Sit...... NSFW

Before you read any further, be forewarned that you will either laugh your okole off, be totally grossed out or offended in some way shape or form demanding justice.

Eh, if you dat PC..... no read 'den - WWD! is no holds barred and das how we roll. lol

Now on to da good stuff.

Chottomatte, you did read the warning above right? :wink: :lol: :wink:










How's dat yeah? I certainly hope you ended up in da former warning as I most certainly did! Now dat was some funny $h!t..... literally! :lol: :lol:

As for me, I gotta admit I'm neither though. Some of you probably shaking your head and wondering wat da heck I do then yeah? Well, I certainly ain't no bidet user but I'm a hybrid of da two.

Wassup Wit Dat!

I totally agree with dat if you one 'stander', brah, you get more problems than I want to know cause I can only imagine da additional square wipe-age area you gotta take care of. Plus, I certainly wouldn't like da ka-ka going anywea near 'cleaner' parts of my body even if it's da okole region.

Now for those who stay sitting...... wassamattah you??

I'm surah we get some 'sitters' hea but why would you want your hand to go below da rim? You're literally inches away from da floaties and I can't even imagine sticking my hand anywea near da pilau zone.

As in life, everything evolves. Me? I'm da hybrid of da two cause I'm one squatter. Aftah I pau, I just lift my okole like I stay doing one "squat" so dat I'm free and clear of da pilau zone cause das one area I want no part of.

Now hear me out on dis cause by squatting, you have several beneficial advantages. Obviously you're above da rim but you also are able to check out your ka-ka and shi-shi for any irregulah colors or shapes. **Dr.Oz says dat you should check your poop for color and shape every time :wink: :wink: **

Probably da biggest benefit is that your okole cheeks always stay separated whereas da standing guy, it would clench and smoosh (visualize stepping on a banana without da peel). From da squatting position, you're then able to wipe 'freely' avoiding da smooshed banana syndrome.

Last you get to check out da toilet paper to make surah you stay 'clean' whereas da person sitting would have a harder time doing so cause whether you look down or risk bringing it around fo' check 'em out AFTAH going below da rim, hmmm, I'll let your imagination run with dat one.

So wat you - sit, stand or squat?

No even get me started on wiping. :lol:

Eh, if you all huu-huu about da video, complaints can be left at 1-800-8WI-PEME. :razz:

Have a great Feel Good Friday! Keep it above da rim and make surah you wipe good eh? :lol: :lol:
