Fun Day Monday: Wrong E-mail Address

March 29th, 2010
By



Sorry gangy, still in vacation mode and will probably have CHOKE stuffs to catch up on today, so I'm posting a "funny" today - for Fun Day Monday - that I got via email. Hope you enjoy!

---

A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong E-mail address:

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.  They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years before.

Because of their hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Friday, and his wife was flying down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel, and unlike years ago, there was a computer in his room, and he decided to send an email to his wife.  However, he accidentally left out one letter in her E-mail address, and without noticing his error,  sent the email to the wrong address.

Meanwhile ... Somewhere in Houston .... A widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory after suffering a heart attack.

The widow decided to check her E-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends.....  After reading the first message, she screamed and then fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and then glanced up and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Date: Friday, October 13, 2005
Subject: I have arrived!

Dearest Love:

I know you are surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now, and you are allowed to send E-mail to your loved ones. I have just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow, and look forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

PS . It sure is freakin' hot down here.

Pretty funny yeah? The ironic thing was that I had no idea who the sender of this joke was, so they actually had the wrong email address for me as well. Well, either that or it was some elaborate, new spamming method that I don't know about. LOL!

Anyway, a big mahalo to da 11 guest bloggers (click here if ya missed it!) and to the rest of y'all for keepin' thangs rollin' while I was MIA. Hope everyone had fun!

Have a great week gang! :)

Guest Bloggin' Recap

I'll make this one short and Ed sweet since many of y'all may have the day off today (Prince Jonah Kuhio Day)...

If you could please help me give a virtual round of applause to the guest bloggers who held it down for the last two weeks: Chicken Grease, kuya.d, JMAW, frankie, kako mochi, tweetpeep22, S-Ticket, tita leerz, skycastles, hemajang, and uncle jimmy. I think they did a killah job and am greatly appreciative of them taking the time to help entertain our WWE `ohana.

Please also give yourselves a hand for your active participation in the discussions. It truly helped to excite and inspire our guest bloggers and I'm sure they're very thankful for it (trust, I know exactly how they feel when the comments start rollin' in!). :)

Anyway, have a great Friday and weekend and I'll see you back on Monday k? Back in full force yo... Well, at least after I dig my way out of the mountain of email that I know is waiting for me... ;)

Easy!

Grab One, Leave One, and Get Reel... [Guest Blog by uncle jimmy]

Mahalo, Edward fo' chance to fill in.. am pretty suah dat WIWIES gang has held down da faht in yo' absence.. I know I been holdeen' down da faht fo' fah too long, myself..

Key den. So does Life imitate Art? Does yo' Life imitate Art? Who is dis Art guy, anywayz? Do you use movie/TV show quotes or song lyrics in everyday conversation to capture a feeling or express a thought? Do you have faves that show up over and over again? I do. Maybe you do, too..

Like when something is getting repetitive or boring.. "went to the White House, uh-gain, and met the President, uh-gain".. from Forrest Gump..

And when something requires a predictable, methodical approach.. "wax on, wax off".. from The Karate Kid..

Or when the variables in a situation appear to be lined up in our favor.. "So, we got that going for us, which is nice".. paraphrased from Caddyshack..

And when it's time to maybe give up and move on.. "you got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em".. from The Gambler..

But when someone is identifying a problem, but not really offering a solution..

"I'm drowning here, and you're describing the water!".. from As Good As It Gets..

Or when you just want a laugh.. "Dese Two Yout's" from My Cousin Vinny..

So here's a Grab One/Leave One/Get Reel Movie Quote Quiz.. try grab one of these obscure quotes from well-known films, identify da Movie, Charactah or Actah, whatevah.. also, try add one too, so we ken keep da game goin' jus' in case..

Oh, an' don't fo'get yo' fave Reel Life quote..

To get started, here are ten obscure quotes from films that you probably saw on TV, maybe more than once, depending on if you get cable or not..

  1. "Correct-amundo! And that's what we're gonna be, we're gonna be cool." (1994)
  2. "Why we're on this mission, we'll never know." (1996)
  3. "Here's somebody who's got it all figured out." (1994)
  4. "If you're reading this, then you've gotten out." (1994)
  5. "If you hurt her, I'll kill you." (1996)
  6. "We deal in lead, friend." (1960).. and what foreign film is it adapted from?
  7. "Sell crazy somewhere else. We're all stocked up here." (1997)
  8. "Well, we're not in the middle of nowhere, but we can see it from here." (1991)
  9. "I like to say a prayer and drink to world peace." (1993)
  10. And finally, the last line from a Sci-Fi Mystery-Thriller in which Angie's buddy puts in a particularly strong performance as a complete wacko.. "My name is Jones. I'm in insurance".. (1995).. bonus points fo' dis one..

So, go fo' it WIWIES Gang! Try Grab One, Leave One, an' Get Reel (or some variation thereof)... :lol:

Where In Hawaii is hemajang? - March 24, 2010 [Guest Blog by hemajang]

This restaurant was on our regular rotation of places to eat with work buddies. Haven't gone there for a while because the last time we went, the normally grouchy lady (I'm being kind here) was having a really bad day and service was horrific, she practically threw our plates on the table and was very rude when taking our order. She wasn't there today but in a weird way, I kinda like her direct local manner. Food is very good but getting pricey and average portions. Haven't tried it but heard their oxtail soup is good.

(Ed's Note: No idea who last week's winnah was for kako mochi's Oregon game, but congrats whoevah you wuz! :P I'll update thangs for next week Wednesday, aftah I return. hemmz was generous enough to provide 2 pict-chaz this week so I took the liberty of "flashing" the second image in there for your viewing pleasure 8) )
