Complimented


I had what I thought was a weird compliment, weird in a good way. Totally positive but it caught me off guard and I was like really…. in a good way. I was just taken a back because I had not heard it before. So the conversation went:

Female Coworker:  For some reason you’ve been looking younger the past few weeks, what is it?

Me-laughing: (totally joking wrong answer but LOL) Sex!

FC:  I don’t know you tell me?

Me: Nah nah nah No sugar – doctors orders.

FC: It might be. LOL

I really don’t know how to take compliments. I think I’m suppose to say “thank you” and leave it be. But I always think the opposite so I’m like ~ I looked haggy otherwise. LOL Like people will say “oh you look nice today” and I think – cause I dressed like a slob yesterday huh? If people who compliment me could hear the thoughts that go with their compliment to me; they would say – Fine I will never compliment you again. Just saying…

It took me a long time to just say “Thank you” when someone said something nice. I use to say shit like,”I looked dumpy yesterday huh?” Nobody even remembers what I wore yesterday except me. 🙂

It use to be whenever I get complimented, I get big eye long neck; WHAT YOU TAWKING ‘BOUT WILLIS?  ( But not out loud – just in my head 😉  )

Nowadays I just laugh and say “Thank you” and wonder what do they want? Hahahaha

False Alarm Hawaii


So I’m texting my sister about this and she says “yeah you’re missing all the action.”  Funny but not, but I think that’s my family; we take things in stride and don’t really panic until the very last minute, it takes a while to register that it is a life or death situation. Maybe we’re just slow like that or we’re just super calm -WTH can you do?

When I think of seeking shelter, especially from a possible nuke attack; I’m thinking of a secure fortified structure prefereable underground, safe from nuclear fall out. Hawaii doesn’t have that. Well it probably does, but on the military base. For the everyday people, you got nothing. You got prayers; thats what you got! Just pray.

My first thought when I heard of the  possible attack was – SO IT WASN’T INTERCEPTED?  They just let a ballistic missle go ballistic – you know what I mean. Maybe I read too much Brad Thor books or Richard Marcinko but you know there’s a reason we have the military and making sure a freaking bomb doesn’t fall on Hawaii is like a no brainer. They’ve been hit before – remember?

Back when I was kid – it was assumed Pearl Harbr & other military installations in Hawaii could posibley be bombed, again. My school was close to Pearl Harbor and another military base. I remembe all the bomb drills we had, diving under our desk.  We even use to get time. Back in those days girls couldn’t and didn’t wear pants to shcool. All girls wore dresses. Girls had to remeber to tuck their dresses under their behnd crouching under the desks. Every now and then you’d hear “I can see yo’panty.”

I was in second grade when we all were given a paper to take home and it highly suggested that families purchase a dog tag for their child. It was twenty five cents. The dog tag has our name, address and parents name. The reasoning was; we would probably be attacked on a week day, during working hours while parents are at work and kids our at school. Dog tage would help us be united with our parents. Although decades later I read something about, the IDs would help identify bodies.  Which I think is closer to the truth. But you don’t tell 2nd graders that. Hawaii never got attacked in the 60’s – Bay of Pigs and all that. But for a long long time there was alway a Russian submarine out in international waters.

I want to know what the conspiracy theory is on this event. I think someone paid someone to do it, kinda like a test run you know. Find out people reaction time, how and what happens if and when and what not. Maybe somebody’s selling bomb shelters and nobody’s buying  hmmmm. There was probably some kind of military wheeling and dealing going. Or some asshole playing chicken with the island. Hmmmm And speaking of Ahole…..

WHAT no immediate Twitter response from the Commander. No – PSYCH! No I told you so blah blah blah. No offical state of emergency this is unexceptable we will get to the bottom of this statement. Leadership Hello? A little too late, couple of days later…. We know you don’t give a ratsass about Obama’s home state, but this has nothing to do we Obama and everything to do with THE PEOPLE. Remember “for the people, by the people” nevermind you don’t, its not part of the bottomline. AND You know what; Hawaii’s golf course are way better then Florida’s golf courses.  LOL

Luckily Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was on it. She understands leadership and war; she has experience.

Since this wake up call incident there has been many memes and videos making light of the situation. And respectfully so, its local humor. All the ones I’ve seen is in Pidgin English so extra funny to me.  Everybody is safe nobody wenmakidiedead, ok us can laugh at ourselves now. Laughing is healthier then worrying about what you have no control of.  Laughter is good medicine. With that said some of the comment made about the “funny stuff” are so NOT Local – you know what I mean. Saying crap about its not funny that blah blah blah – and understandably so – but you know what moving FWD…

Anyways one of my favorite pieces is da one with da Govana, and they wen change his speech into to Pidgin and it ends wit:  I love abody, I love all of youguu except dat onedumbfaka who wen press da button.

Everything Has Sugar


What food doesn’t have sugar? If its man made its got sugar huh? Duh!

So fruits then. I’m addicted to munching. Just wanted something to munch on. Grapes! I’m munching on grapes.  How healthy am I, TODAY.

cf789a1d27397614e73f66dc6b58b105

Maybe its the crunching I miss. Whats a crunchy healthy snack?

I was reading labels on the breakfast bars; and they ALL have sugar. Did not see no sugar free nothing. Like there’s no salt free nothing. We are all gonna die, ain’t it.

6bf7f47cfa28854b418a0ff0d6a498f9

Grapes ain’t so bad though, I like grapes. Seedless. It’s not polite to spit at work.  Or where ever. 🙂

I think its  me and the munching thing. Now grazing on grapes.

Poor Man’s Latte


I WAS gonna buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks but I talked myself out of it.

I get to work and there’s coffee made so I get this brilliant idea: I can make me a poor man’s latte. LOL

So  I put a packet of cocoa in a cup and pour coffee in it.  I take a sip and get instantly happier?   A rush of calm and ooooh and ahhhh and OFk its sugar! LOL

1b07bbb981f33d60a3d594372c958c96

Cracked myself up. WTH need to finish the cup of “latte” – no waste. 🙂

Sugar Rush Sugar Fail. LOL

No Sugar


Everything has sugar in it. Everything has salt in it. Been down the No Salt road. Now I love fries with no salt. 🙂

I had a run in with the doctor. Well not really, regular scheduled appointment. My five viles of blood and cup of pee revealed unacceptable numbers. This too high, that too low, adjust meds here and there, add more drugs.

WTH I can’t afford myself I ain’t buying no moe drugs. You would think I’d be addicted to something after all these years of going to the drug store to pick up drugs.

I was reading the “description” of a particular drug that I will not mention by name; they might sue me and I won’t have money to buy their product. Right. Supposabley this drug will remove sugars via your pee. Ooookkkkaaayyy.

A few of the side effects include: yeast infection and cancer of the liver. WHAT!?

So what are you saying; my sugar will be down but my cancer will be up?  WTH.

I was reading about the yeast infection part and grossed out about the part that men can get yeast infections too. I knew about me, didn’t know about them! The description  of a man with yeast infection painted  an undesirable picture. Well when is pictures of infections desirable? But you know what I mean

My “numbers” are all outta whack, too high, too low and part of that is trying to get my thyroid meds balanced. Which I don’t think it has ever been balanced. It’s either up or down. Currently its over corrected. So dosage has to be adjusted. For the weekdays I take one does & for the weekend I take a lower dose. Assuming I remember to pick the right bottle. I’m going blind reading prescription bottles.

So the doc says: Let’s try NO Sugar for 30 days and we’ll see how that goes, come back in 30 days.  And in my mind I heard, 5 more viles of blood & a cup of shishi.

Fine. If I did no salt, only fair to do no sugar. Should be interesting going down this Hangry Road. LOL I feel skinny all ready just thinking about it.

Note to self: Get rid of your emergency stash of Dingdongs in your desk.

New Year’s Resolution(s)


I don’t make them. What’s the point? I already know I lie a lot to myself. Why publicize? You know what I mean? 🙂

Besides its usually the same:  loose weight, pay off bills, save money, unclutter/unhoard, be a nicer person to that one or two people you always act like a shithead to, stuff like that.

I will make my resolutions known after I accomplish them. That’s code for: you’ll never hear me speak of – I lost weight, paid off all my bill and I have saved tons of money. Actually though when I do lose major weight I will flaunt it.  I always wanted to be in the magazine as an example you know the BEFORE & AFTER pictures. I find that so inspiring and proud of those who have reached that status. Me, I’m sort of stuck in BEFORE mode. Hopefully when I grow up I’ll reach that AFTER look. LOL

I think people just make resolutions just cause of peer pressure or because that’s what you’re suppose to do etc. Resolutions are good, its not a bad thing. It’s even better when you accomplish them. Well duh, its the same as having goals. New Year’s Goals – sounds like hockey huh? New Year’s Resolution – sounds more formal and legally binding.

Resolutions are bad for me because I have such an attitude about it, how predictable; setting myself up for failure. If you think you are going to fail you are right. But if I don’t think about it I have nothing to fear. Ignorance is bliss.  LOL Or something to that effect. 🙂

Bloodwork


Had blood work done this morning. Five viles of blood and a cup of pee. Gee you’d think I was sick or something? LOL I’ve been going to the vampires excuse me, phlebotomist quarterly for the past 15 years. My lab bills look like a credit card statement, long list ending in 5 figures. Thanks to insurance on average I pay $30.

Phlebotomist is such a big word, sounds like a rocket scientist or something. The Techs aka Phlebotomist sometimes have a hard time finding my veins. Something about having deep veins or veins that move. Isn’t everyones veins like that. You mean there are people with shallow veins that don’t move? I always use to think it was ME. But after more then a decade of getting my blood drawn; I realize its not me, its THEM.  Its about experience.  You can tell the experienced ones. Then just grab & stab. The rookie ones kinda gotta slap your veins with two fingers, tell you to open close your hands, tap on your veings again. You know they are serious rookies when they leave you bruised.

Once in a major hospital before surgery the nurse could not find my veins. So of course they call another nurse, and then they called a doctor. What? Doctors draw blood? What was weird was they took it out of my wrist area. That was way strange.

I always wonder, without insurance I would probably croak sooner then later. Having health insurance makes a difference. Just stating the obvious. I remember my doctor asking me “why haven’t I seen you more often this year?” Um’ duh; its called unemployemnt, no insurance blah blah blah…. Hmmmm

Lika Log Star Date: 2nd day of da yea!


🙂 All is well in the galaxy. Ok it’s  my galaxy – da legend in my own kind of mind one. LOL

So far so good. Hope I didn’t just jinx myself. Is it too early to tell ya’think? Probably huh? It has been quiet and pleasant and drama-less. That is always a good sign, right?

Anyways another day, another dollar, a paycheck is always good. Looking forward to a clearance or two.  I keep seeing people overstocking their Christmas wrapping & ribbons & stuff and my first thought was, how do you know if you’re gonna be here next Christmas? If you’re here than great, if not who is going to use it? The family, maybe? Just saying. I think that way.  You know what I mean.

According to WalMart its Valentines day tomorrow. They make it seem so urgent. Then when you really want something Valentines-ish on February 13th there will only be junk and opened packages and mish mash of stuff. So yeah better run over get something before its all gone. Its kind of funny how Valentine’s day is the busiest time for florist. Everyone buys flower. Do you realize that fresh flowers are the one thing we know are going die and we buy it anyway? Just stating the obvious.

Pretty much the holidays have been hi-jacked by marketing. Who can sell the mostest? Just another pissing contest between stores & advertisers. But you kinda gotta love looking at all the WalMart do-dads.

I use to always admire certain gift sets, you know there’s the cocoa one, ice-cream, cofee what have you.  Then somebody gave me a gift set with all the cocoa stuff and it just sat there, and I think it got regifted. LOL They look nice untill you get one, and its like now what?  Although I do like the liquor giftsets. 🙂

Everybody it seems goes to the movies on Christmas day. The crowds are overwhelming, which if why we just did a drive by.  I don’t like standing in line, I don’t like crowded theaters, buh humbug. LOL  So that’s why I haven’t seen Justice League or Star Wars or Jumunji. Guess I’ll just wait till the box set of Star Wars is out and I can binge watch from beginning to end. I think that would be cool to just have a Star Wars binge weekend, or week. What ever is available.

WELL  May the Force Be With You in 2018. Live well and prosper!

Last Workday of the 2017


Today is the last Friday of the month, of the year;  last work day of 2017. Happy 3 day weekend. Happy New Year. Happy 2018!

I am crossing my fingers for an early dismissal. LOL Wishful thinking on my part I know but such is life.  It could happen. 🙂

Although I do have lots to do at work and it wouldn’t hurt to finish those projects first. Then I think, well I’m already behind because I have files to shift, files to make. Old year new year. Box up the old. But first finish the current projects. Blah blah blah

Being excused would solve the problem, ok give me an excuse to just stop where I am and see ya’ next year. It would be a good stopping point. When they announce – you can leave now – whose gonna argue? Ok, there’s always one or two but that’s cause they have no life other then work. LOL

So off to finish my projects and hopefully an early dismissal. Or not. Either way its all good.

Here’s wishing you a good rest of the year 2017 and a better dramaless more prosperous 2018.

2017 – 2018


Three more days, well 4 counting today till 2018.  Year of the Dog.

2017 is/was a good year. Decent. Can’t complain. Okay I can but what’s done is done. Moving forward 🙂

For me, this year has been better than past couple of years so I am blessed. Can’t say I’m not. It’s all good.

goodbye-2017-hello-2018

I look forward to a prosperous new year. Always. I’m optimistic like that. LOL Unlike some people who think everything is “oh woe is me” or whatever. Ya’gotta stay away from those kine of people whose worst scenarios are always way more worst than yours. There’s always that one person who will one up you on anything that is negative.  Those are the kind of people you have to stay away from. God forbid if its someone in your household. How do you escape that shit?

2b63e99574ed186ed5a6eea6dc93e1fd

May 2018 bring you peace, love and cash. Cash is always good. Who is gonna argue that? (rhetorical question)   Oh yeah and by the way…..
