Return of the Ed

December 8, 2008

Alooooooooha! Your boy Ed missed our little WWE `ohana up in this blogosphere, ya heard!?

Ho, talk about exhaustion though!

First, it was all about jamming um at work to finish errthang before I hele for 3 weeks… (Not looking too forward to the billions of emails when I return either.)

Den, the week leading up to the big day was full of errand running and frantic last minute preps that were left until crunch time.

Den, the whirlwind of the big dance, and den it was off to Japan for the honeymoon for two weeks. Woah!

We got back on Friday, but I think the ol’ body clock is still having a hahd time fo adjust.

Besides crying your eyes out šŸ˜› , whatcha guys been up to man? I know this is kinda femme(bot) sounding, but I missed you guys. šŸ˜‰ So give it to me. Geev me da scoops! What’s the singleĀ biggest thing that happened to you in the last three weeks. Update me and your WWE `ohana willya!?Ā  (If ya can’t think of anything on a personal level, how ’bout sharing whatĀ the biggest thing in Hawaii nei was? I’ve been out of the country for 2 weeks after all… catch me up man! šŸ™‚ )

I’ll start (even though mines isĀ pretty easy, and I’m sure y’all already know anyway) : I’ve changed my title from FiancĆ© to Husband, Single to Married, “Mad No Game” to “Game Over”. Speaking of which, I’ll end this here post with an image that the wife’s bridesmaid used in her speech when talking about me (she said that it was a sneak preview of my next blog… and you know what, since I’m using it now, she was right!). The guests laughed at my expense, but it’s all good.

Um, yeah thanks Noele!
Um, yeah thanks Noele!

Glad to be back y’all…

Fave Five Friday, Wedding Songs

September 19, 2008

I know you peeps are probably sick of all this wedding talk already (esp the dudes!), but I swear it’ll only be a little while longer. I only “axe” this because I have faith in you WWE readers. šŸ™‚

So this week’s Fave Five list is a call out to all you music lovers/experts out there. No song from any generation or genre will be out of the question. We’re looking for those hidden gems out there.

The topic, as made obvious by the blog title, is Wedding Songs. Ones I’ve just gotsta have and overplayed ones to avoid like the plague. If you’re yet unmarried, or married but regret not playing some songs at your wedding… here’s your chance to live vicariously through me! šŸ˜‰ Holla atcho boy!

Much love y’all!

Da In Da Running list:

  1. The Penguins – Earth Angel
  2. Stevie Wonder – You Are the Sunshine of My Life or Isn’t She Lovely or Ribbon in the Sky?
  3. James Taylor – How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved By You)
  4. Tony Terry – Everlasting Love
  5. Colbie Caillat – Magic
  6. Trey Lorenz – Someone to Hold
  7. Keith Martin – Because of You
  8. Hi-Five – I Can’t Wait Another Minute
  9. Opihi Pickers – Love You Forever (representing’ some Hawaiian flava!)
  10. The Stylistics – I’m Stone In Love With You
  11. The Jets – You Got It All
  12. etc…

(ok, so it’s a little more than 5… hehe!)

Da Overplayed/Avoid list:

  1. UNV – So In Love With You
  2. All-4-One – I Swear
  3. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  4. 98 Degrees – I Do (Cherish You)

We basically want people to hear the song, reminisce and go “Ohhhhhhh!” once they hear the song that hits home for them. Please help a brutha out and post your suggestions below (songs, artists, both!). I’ll be sure to give you credit during the reception (who’s gonna check? Nah!). šŸ˜›

P.S. Speaking of weddings, I recently read a fictional, but amusing post about Twittering a wedding and thought the idea was hilarious. Can you imagine me, or any groom for that matter, at the altar twittering live updates. Too funny!

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!

Heavenly Matrimony?

September 18, 2008

These hilarious marriage-related jokes were forwaded to me recently. They were so amusing that I thought I’d post it for you, my blogfriends (yes, one word), to read for kicks. Married peeps, please tell me they’re not true! Haha!

============================================================

You have two choices in life:

You can stay single and be miserable,

or get married and wish you were dead.

===================================================================

At a cocktail party, one woman said to another,

“Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?”

“Yes, I am. I married the wrong man.”

===================================================================

A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds:

“Husband Wanted”.

Next day she received a hundred letters.

They all said the same thing:

“You can have mine.”

===================================================================

When a woman steals your husband, there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.

===================================================================

A woman is incomplete until she is married. Then she is finished.

===================================================================

A little boy asked his father,

“Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?”

Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.”

===================================================================

A young son asked,

“Is it true Dad, that in some parts of AfricaĀ a man doesn’t know his wife until he marries her?”

Dad replied, “That happens in every country, son.”

===================================================================

Then there was a woman who said,

“I never knew what real happiness was until I got married…Ā and by then, it was too late.”

===================================================================

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.

===================================================================

If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say – talk in your sleep.

===================================================================

Just think, if it weren’t for marriage, men would go through life thinkingĀ theyĀ had no faults at all.

===================================================================

First guy says, “My wife’s an angel!”

Second guy remarks, “You’re lucky, mine’s still alive.”

===================================================================

A Woman’s Prayer:

Dear Lord, I pray for: Wisdom, To understand a man, to Love and to forgive him, and for patience for his moods. Because Lord, if I pray for StrengthĀ I’ll just beat him to death.

===================================================================

SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST…

Ā 

Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with their nine children.

AĀ Ā blindĀ man joins them after a few minutes. When the bus arrives, they find itĀ overloaded and only the wife and the nine kids are able to fit onto theĀ bus. So the husband and the blind man decide to walk.

After a while, the husbandĀ gets irritated by the ticking of the stick of the blind man as he taps itĀ  onĀ the sidewalk, and says to him, “Why don’t you put a piece of rubber at theĀ endĀ of your stick? That ticking sound is driving me crazy.”

The blind man replies, “If you had put a rubber at the end of YOUR stick,Ā  we’dĀ be riding the bus, so shut the hell up!”

===================================================================

What’d you think? Laughed your butt off? Cried yourself to sleep because they were spot on? Vent away in the comment area below. Post your own wedding joke if ya got um too! T.G.I.F. tomorrow! Yay!

Get With Da Program!

September 15, 2008

So this weekend, we met with our emcee to be Bruddah Bryan. He’s an old friend and ex college roommate (shout out to Noelani apartment!), and is holding it down now as one of KCCN FM 100’s radio personalities.

Nimitz Zippy’s was the location of choice as we chatted a bit and discussed the possibilities for the day’s events. We’ve got a few interesting things up our sleeves for our Asian/Japanese-themed shindig, but wanted to do another “reach-out” to all y’all for suggestions you may have for us. Ya know… things you personally enjoy as a guest to a wedding (or even pet peeves of things you don’t like) or unique and interestingĀ things you’ve witnessed. From the program to the music to various activities inspired from the motherland, we’re trying hard to make it a uniqueĀ event to remember. Holla atcho boy if ya gots any gems for us (post ’em below please)! šŸ™‚

P.S. Thanks for always helping a brutha out with these things. I’ve got a pretty good understanding of what would make a fun event for me as a guy (beer and booty shakin’ music come to mind), but I’m pretty clueless when it comes to a more mainstream, female friendly event. šŸ™‚

Happy Monday yo!

Fave Five Friday – Wedding Party Gift Ideas

September 12, 2008

OK, so this somewhat of a self-serving post, but what the h*ll, let’s give it a shot. šŸ˜›

We’re getting down to the wire for this whole wedding thang, and I’m trying hard to think of an awesomely unique gift idea for my boyz/groomsmen/wedding party. I’ve been on a few parties myself and got some cool gifts like shades, an engraved money clip, a high quality pen, etc., but I’m looking for that special somethin’-somethin’. The “it” that will leave a memorable mark forever…

I’ve got a few things in mind, but maybe you, my beautiful (but virtual) online friends can help a brutha out with some neat gift ideas. And hopefully, none of my boys will read this one. LOL! If ya gots any ideas for the lady and her party, feel free to post those below as well. The more help the merrier!

In no particular order, here are some I’ve received or heard of:

  1. Alcohol! (in one form or another)
  2. Sunglasses/Shades
  3. Watches
  4. Shoes (and then you wear it during the wedding)
  5. Custom engraved _______ (fill in the blank).

Please post your suggestions below. Can be your own ideas or ones you’ve received or heard of yourself. Helllllp! šŸ™‚

P.S. Be sure to pick up tomorrow’s Honolulu Advertiser for the most amazing front page in history! Hehe, nah, they’ll be hyping my face and blog on the front page, so consider this your warning. Don’t want ya spilling hot coffee on yourself out of fear or amazement… one or the other. šŸ˜› Oh yeah, and be sure to also check out this blog that same Saturday for an interesting topic on “Bag Ladies”…

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!
