Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – May 20, 2009

May 20, 2009

A-ightch’all! I know it’s Where In Hawaii Wednesday, but we gotsta dish American Idol right quick. What did you think of last night’s performance? Who did you think did better? How did you have your round by round scoring? Who do you think will take it all? Who do you WANT to take it all?

Overall, I thought it was a so-so show. I anticipated Adam Lambert to have that “moment”, but he really didn’t. Kris Allen’s first two songs were pretty smoove, but his 3rd one left something to be desired. Actually, I think both of their 3rd songs were let downs. There were moments in Adam’s performances when I started growing tired of it (his style). Still trying to figgah out who will sell more records, and my vote is still with Allison Iraheta. 😛

Now… on to tha bidness at hand… Where In Hawaii yo!

Last week’s pic was supposed to be a hard one, but yet again, you buggahs never cease to amaze me. Syxx was just the second person to chime in, and, low and behold, got it. What the!?!? I’m hoping that this week’s one will pose a slight problem for at least the first 3 of you, 😛 but if I were a guessin’ man, I’d bet that it’s gonna be another easy one. We shall see…

Strange Noises In the Potty

May 5, 2009

A recent trip to the little boy’s room made me recall a humorous conversation/debate I had with wifey and her friends a while back. At some point during that conversation, it took a downward spiral (probably thanks to me) as we discussed the riveting topic of bathroom etiquette. Curiously, I axed the shy sistahs if they actually made “noise” when handling’ their bidness at a public restroom.

You should’ve seen the cold stare (not to mention the deafening silence) I got from that one. Sheez.

Upon returning from the death stare and silence, they asked me, “Why!? Do YOU!?!?”

Now if you know anything about me, I’m all about honesty. No shame! So I gave it to them:

“Of course! Why not!? I don’t know any of these people, and, even if I did, who cares? It’s human nature! It’s unhealthy to hold it in!”

[insert more cold stares and silence in addition to crinkled noses and “Ewwwwwws!”]

I continued…

“BUT… at work it’s a different story. If somebody saw me going in, or they know I’m in thurr, I try and hold back shmall kine.”

There’s just a different set of rules for work potty usage no? Ya gotsta stay professional up in the heezy. I don’t exactly want the trumpet to blow while one of the execs sits in the stall next to me. That’s just weird. Plus it might affect my year end reviews. 😉

There’s also a timing strategy involved. (Eh, no laugh! I know you got the same strategy! *grin*) You gotta make sure that anybody in the bat’chroom with you is gonedos before you make your grand exit. There’s nothing worse than playing a virtual virtuoso of noises in the stall, only to step out to a bunch of glaring/inquisitive co-worker eyes who were wondering who that Dizzy Gillespie-wannabe was tooting in the stall. LOL!

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not exactly a noise maker extraordinaire, but sometimes ya just gotsta let loose, ya heard? After all, it’s not very good for your health… 😛

(… I still can’t believe I just wrote about this topic. Apologies… 8) )

Talk to me…
* Do you make noise?
* Is your strategy different at work than it is in public?
* How about at home? In front of your spouse/mate/roommate/parents?
* What about farts? Same rules apply?
* Any other bathroom etiquette rules you live by?
* Is this entire blog just wrong?

If any of you know anything about me, this one will probably be pretty easy, as I go here often. That’s all I’m-a-gonna say. Ack, I said too much. Go!

Survey Thursday – Do You Facebook?

April 23, 2009

* Do you Facebook? If not where do you call (social networking) “home”?

Lately, the old older peeps here at work have been asking me about this strange new thing called “Facebook.” As the resident “Web Expert” I guess I’m the go to guy for these types of questions and boy, have they been a-comin’! First I smirk (at how late they are to the party) and then I proceed to explain to these newbies what it’s all about. How you use it, why people use it, privacy concerns, etc. The look on their face is priceless. It’s the same as that of someone who just watched TV in color for the first time. (at least I think that’s what they looked like. 😛 )

Facebook, at least to me, is where it’s at. There are so many features to control privacy, friends, microblogging/notifications (ala Twitter), and, as evident by the interest from the old older peeps here at work, it’s catching wind. I’ve gotten back in touch from old friends from yesteryear that I haven’t spoken to in years, and all the company and corporate peers are there as well! There are so many more relevant people up in thurr than say a MySpace. If I had to compare the two, I’d tell someone that MySpace is more for kids and ‘tweens and Facebook is more for adults. (No, not that kind of “adult” you perv. 😉 )

There is a downside though. With so many of your professional contacts up in the heezy, you really have to watch what you say and post. It’s not like I have anything to hide really, but posting that drunken party pic from the weekend (I don’t do this – just an example) is probably not something for your boss’ eyes. I’ve heard of stories of those kinda things coming back to haunt employees, and that doesn’t really surprise me.

How did we get to this point? I remember the good ol’ days when these social networking type sites were strictly for us “young” peeps? Let’s turn back the clock a bit shall we… Remember these?

Chat/Talk on UH’s Unix system –> HCU –> Asian Avenue –> IM/Messenger type services (AIM/Windows Live/Yahoo!/Google Talk) –> Friendster –> LinkedIn –> MySpace –> Facebook

Oh YEAH! I bet ya forgot about some of those gems eh? Ha!

And that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what other sites are out there (Yelp, Flickr, TwitterBebo, Hi5, YouTube, and yes, we even have one on AroundHawaii.com).

Is there something after Facebook? Probably, but for now, this is where the party’s at yo. Holla if ya hear me! 😉

Talk to me!
* Do you Yahoo! Facebook?
* If so, how many friends ya got?
* Do you add anyone or just the people you know IRL?
* Are your bosses or company’s executives on there too?
* What’s your favorite part about Facebook?
* Your least favorite?
* What other social networking sites do you frequent?
* If you’ve never joined Facebook or any other social networking site, why or why not?

Gimme Back That Filet-O-Fish

March 19, 2009

* Is it just me or is that damn Filet-O-Fish commercial addicting or what!?!?

It never fails. Every time that Filet-O-Fish commercial from McDonalds appears as I fast forward through shows on the DVR, I have to rewind a bit and play it back for wifey so she can giggle and sing along. At first I was like “WTH, this is lame, lemme keep going,” but now I find myself delightfully amused, even bobbing my head to the beat.

Whoever thought of the idea of using that well known talking/singing “trophy fish” to sell MickeyDees’ fish product is pure genius. And whoever came up with that even catchier tune is just jingleriffic.

Mad props.

You got wifey and I (and errryone else for that matter) a-talkin’ and, undoubtedly a renewed interest in the Filet-O-Fish. Maybe I’ll go pick one up for lunch today. *grin*

Gimme back that Filet-O-Fish

News Day Tuesday: Kitchen Fire 411

March 17, 2009

A-ightchall, here’s a little 411 on how to deal with grease fires in your kitchen. Logic tells us that we should shoot down a fire with water, but in the case of grease fires, the WORST thing to do is to use water. This is due to the fact that when the water comes in contact with the superheated grease, it will immediately vaporize, expanding and carrying more grease particles with it, causing the rate of combustion to dramatically increase and flare up.

Now some of you may already know this, so please bear with us. This is for those of us not yet in the know, and that’s the hope of today’s blog: to help educate our WWE `ohana and keep us all (and our neighbors) safe.

Check out the video below let me/us know what you think.

Here’s a link to a more graphic, to-the-point video. (WARNING: Very Graphic, chicken skin kine)

If talking about grease fires is not your bag on this News Day Tuesday, feel free to dish on any of the topics below, the ones that will inevitably be suggested by kuya.d and tita leerz folks 😛 or any other topic you wish.

* Your March Madness Brackets

* Lindsay Lohan’s latest troubles
* John Mayer & Jennifer Aniston’s break up… Again

* NBA’s ridiculous decision to release green, shamrock/clover infested L.A. Lakers apparel (ala rival Boston Celtics)
* Upcoming June 24 release of “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”

In other news, shmall kine plug, but if you or anyone you know is interested in a cleanly kept, white, 2000 Toyota Corolla LE (Kelley Blue Book entry says $5,770, but you can ask for the WWE special 😛 ), let a brutha know. Bonus points for those who can guess where in Hawaii this is. LOL!
