Fave Five Friday – Peeps (Desert Island edition)

February 27, 2009

A-ight gang, unless you can think of anything else, I think we’ve exhausted all our options for da Desert Island. We’ve brought along enough DVDs, CDs, Books, and Valued Possessions to cover half the island. And, thankfully, we’re stranded with each other, so, in case we’re short on any one item, we’ve got each other’s back. […]

Survey Thursday – What Is Your Current Ringtone?

February 26, 2009

* On your mobile phone, what do you use as your default ring tone? (Mahalos to soogs for suggesting this one.) My default ring tone is set to “Ringtone 10” on my LG Voyager because it’s loud, catchy and unique. Loud because I’m deaf, catchy so I don’t get irritated at it whenever it rings, and […]

News Day Tuesday: LeBron James Goes Off

February 24, 2009

(continuing my whining from yesterday’s post… Can we please sign BronBron to next season’s UH squad? Last Friday, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James went nuts on the Milwaukee Bucks early in the 3rd quarter as he lit up Richard Jefferson and his teammates for 16 points in less than 3 minutes of action. Read an excerpt […]

Why ‘Bows Whyyyyy?

February 23, 2009

It has definitely been a trying year for us Rainbow Men’s Basketball fans this season. The team has shown flashes of brilliance and then lets us down with un-awe inspiring heart break. We’ve hit the lowest of lows and the highest of highs (ok, not really that high). Saturday night’s 76-70 loss against non-conference UC Irvine […]

Fave Five Friday – Must Have Possessions (Desert Island edition)

February 20, 2009

Y’all already shared your list of DVDs, CDs and Books. But let’s just say that that there are no TVs, DVD players, CD players and books allowed on this island. You know, hypothetically. 😉 Having said that, what prized possessions would you want with you in this time of need? Remember, these are your top […]

Survey Thursday – Are You a Fan of UH Men’s Basketball?

February 19, 2009

* Are you a fan of the University of Hawaii Men’s Basketball program? More importantly, are you going to the game this Saturday? I know, I know. It’s hard to be one after a gut-wrenching loss to Nevada last Saturday at home (*crossing my fingers for their nationally televised matchup against Fresno State today*)… but […]

February 18, 2009

It took y’all a while, but after a small hint, Paco was able to capture his 3rd belt in 5 weeks, after correctly naming Mililani Restaurant in last week‘s Where In Hawaii contest.

Creating Zen In Your Own Japanese Garden

February 17, 2009

How did y’all spend your loooong holiday weekend? I hope it wasn’t at work? 🙁 As for yours truly, it was spent working on our poor, neglected yard. It’s been over a year since we moved in, but because of all of the wedding planning hysteria, the only work we’ve been able to do was to […]

February 12, 2009

* Will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day (for one, and if so will you do it) on Valentine’s Day? OK, so this Saturday is Valentine’s Day (To all you forgetful men out there, you’re welcome for the reminder. 😛 ) and I’ve basically heard from two sides of the camp on this one: One side […]

February 11, 2009

Another new face in Takeshi took home the gold last week when he correctly guessed “The Garden Court Buffet at the Main Street Station Casino” for the special Where In Hawaii Vegas is Edward Sugimoto game. Seems like the WWE newbies/lurkers are coming on strong as of late. Way to go y’all! Daddy likes! A-ight, […]

February 10, 2009

Survey Thursday – Superbowl Betting Results?

February 5, 2009

* How did you do in your Superbowl bets? Please do not post your losses if it will get you in trouble with the wife/husband/gf/bf/friend/loan shark/parents. *grin* And by no means does this mean I condone betting as a regular activity. Personally, I don’t really like to do big cash bets – especially if it’s […]
