I don't want to go on and on, so lets cut to the worst parts of the conversation he helped lead throughout the meal;


1.) This killer flu that's going around is being caused by mixed races and continuous degeneration of the human race through interracial breeding. And that if everyone just "sticked to their own kind", the CDC would have a much easier time making cures and vaccines to save lives. Yes, he literally said this to us. He also wanted to be sure to point out that just because he was white and saying this, didn't mean that he was racist, it just meant that he was speaking the truth as he saw it.

2.) Did you guys know that the Sandy Hook shooting was a hoax? Yes, apparently it was, and a majority of the parents involved were paid actors by the Obama Administration hired to make matters seem worse than they actually were. In truth, only about four to five children died. The rest of them were either mis-identified or just plain never existed in the first place, which is why Black Ops personnel on scene had to kill the three teachers that didn't evacuate in time. They knew the truth and couldn't live.


I wish this guy was some religious nut, I wish he was a republican so I could say "oh, it makes sense why he'd be that way." But nope, when I asked him which way he voted this election, his response was; "are you kidding me? I've never voted a day in my life and I don't plan to for the rest of it." So I'm at a lost. I've come across these kinds of people before, online, but never once in person. Online, I could say that they were just being idiots because they get to be anonymous and not have to answer for it. But this guy wasn't joking, he wasn't being sarcastic, he was just plain, ugh. I don't even know what the **** to call him.
Did you bring it up to that friend who brought him along? What did he say?

Trust me, we ALL brought it up to him afterwards. His excuse was that he didn't think he'd be that outspoken during lunch.

That's not really an apology for what he said, but for the time period in which he said it. Don't bother with that guy, he isn't worth your time.

If there was any confusion, he definitely is racist.

Silver Linings Playbook has cheered me a bit though ha ha.

Some legend who sees me at the bus stop saw I got off without my bag and had picked it up. He passed it to me at the bus stop this morning. Good start to the day!

Blood tests back tomorrow. Reckon everything will be sound.

I set my thermostat to 70 degrees, but this morning when I tossed off the covers I got a big chill - it was 58 in my place according to the thermostat.

I'm wearing my winter coat right now.
Outside temperature is rather warm comparatively it's about 6 degrees warmer outside than yesterday But this chill isn't going to end until Monday Buuuurrrrr!

So this past week has been spent closing all of my accounts with clients and moving them over to other processors and agents. Well, yesterday, I had to meet one of my first clients (an office clerk) on the far North Shore side of the island. An hour long drive for me, ugh. Anyway, my journey began at his place of employment, which was the Lai'e Hawaii Latter-Day Saint's Temple, which I have to say, was freakin' beautiful and huuuuuge. I may not follow their faith, but those guys really know how to build temples, let me tell you. You don't even know it exists if you're on the main highway. You have to drive through an entire old rundown neighborhood that cuts into this amazingly long driveway.

So I get there and find that he's just gone to deliver some documents to the BYUH campus next door... which in all my ignorance and time here, did it never cross my mind that Hawaii had a BYU chapter. So I drive next door and again, huuuuuge freakin' campus that makes the University of Hawaii campus look old and rundown. So I meet the guy and we spend the next three hours touring the campus and eventually have a late lunch at this awesome food court there. So yeah, I spent the entire day with the Mormons and it wasn't half bad. Rather peaceful, actually. Got to get away from my horrible life for a day and just relax.

I don't believe in god in the slightest but when I was around 14/15 I got baptised as a Mormon....... Was more of a favour to some American Mormons who had helped my mum through a difficult time when she had a stroke. I know they were hoping we would turn to the path of the lord ...... We never but it was nice of them to try.

Also went the docs today and bloods, blood pressure, hear rate etc are all perfectly normal. Just a mad one off episode I guess.

Well I hope everything stays that way, mate. And get checkups often, just to be sure.

I've never voted coz I basically think it doesn't matter who's in charge. All the big stuff would happen the same way either way. When 9/11 happened it didn't matter who was in charge, the US was going to war and Britain was going to be standing right next to them. When the credit crunch hit didn't matter who was in charge, jobs would be lost and banks would suffer. Sure they have argued all the different ways to solve the credit crunch but as far as the critics say, they always pick the wrong solution and the fans always say "Give it time, you'll see!"

I do plan on voting NO to the Scotland independence referendum when ever that is. I see that as a terrible move! Also, Northen Ireland have wars over being British or not, Scotland just through insults at the English coz we are neighbours and that's what neighbouring countries do. Sadly though I feel my vote will be pointless as all I've heard from everyone is support of Scotland independence so that'll be fun.

It's always great when you have "negative dollars" in your bank account. This is how I feel right now:

What's great is when your bank penalizes you for having no money.

It's going to feel extremely surreal next month when I start closing my accounts and packing my apartment... It's all coming together for the big March move. While I hated my life here, I really did enjoy this island for the most part. The people are friendly, the environment always remains in either Spring or Summer. But it's time for that ultimate change. Maybe I should visit Disneyland when I leave. Last time I went I was a kid, lol.

Was that video before Louis C.K. got his own TV show? If he's telling me he's poor now I'd expect him to sound more high and/or drunk...

Seattle, Washington. I was Born in Hawaii, grew up in Seattle, moved back to Hawaii with my parents where I finished high school and two years of college before dropping out, moved back to Seattle, then moved back to Hawaii almost a decade ago to help my parents through some hard times. Those bastards have been pulling my strings ever since. This past month was enough for me, so now I'm finally moving back to the States for good.

Seattle, here I come.

My response to this first part of your post was "Oh, haha, yes, I totally have experienced that and understand what you are going through! My friends have totally brought along weirdos like that who the rest of us rolled our eyes at!"

Wow been sick all weekend - burning stomach, nearly tossing my cookies several times, and now it's just down to the headache behind the eyes today.
Wonder of that drop in temperature inside the house had something to do with it?
