~ this is the pidgin's version of Ebonics, yeah it is how some of us here on the islands converse...took me awhile to learn and understand but now that's how I tend to speak with friends ~

Before: Hello. I've been meaning to ask you, exactly how old are you actually?
After: Howzit. What year you grad?

Before: Pardon me. Your actions make me seriously doubt your manhood.
After: Wat? Panty?

Before: That is an excellent idea. I am in full concurrence with your plan. Let us do the deal.
After: Shoots!

Before: It's those darn tourists again! You know, they're getting to be a pain in my side.
After: Frickin' Haoles!

Before: Excuse me, you seem to be blocking my path of travel. Would you mind stepping to the side, please?
After: Try move!

Before: Please, officer, I give you my word that I will no longer travel in excess of the speed limit.I beg you not to write that ticket.
After: Eh, you know my unko? (uncle)

Before: I don't care for your attitude, would you care to take this outside?
After: What? Beef?

Before: That's okay, I will do it myself!
After: Nevamine!

Before: You know what I'm talking abou...that whatchamacallit?!
After: You know, Da Kine.

Before: Why don't we go and take a quick dip in the ocean?
After: We go beach.

Before: I'm sorry, I won't be able to go out with you tonight, I wasn't able to find a babysitter for my children.
After: No can, my maddah said no!

Before: I'm so hungry, I haven't eaten all day!
After: We go L & L's.

Before: Can I contribute anything to your gathering. I don't want to come empty handed.
After: No worry, I got da poke (pronounced poh-key)!

Before: Of course I'll do you that favor!
After: Whatevas?! (my favorite and so over-used word)

Before: Are you absolutely positive that you want to go through with this?

Before: Please let me know where you currently are so that I may meet you shortly.
After: Wea you stay?

Before: Wow, this gourmet food is very delectable!
After: Ho, dis one broke da mout!

After: You like go try wait?

Before: My word, that man hit that other man in the side of the head for no apparent reason and without warning!
After: Ho, he wen false crack!

Before: I liked hanging out with you. See you later.
After: K, den.
(say it while swiftly lifting your chin up once only.)

Before: Make up your mind, are you coming with us or are you staying here?
After: Eh, you like go-stay-go?
(Go-stay-go must be said as though it's one word in it's entirety. If said correctly it should sound like : Goh-stego)

//W.H.O a.m I?

"So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~ Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"

Here I am as perfect as I'm ever going to be. You'll see, love me for me. Stick around, I'm not the kind of girl you wanna leave. You'll see, love me for me.

The current mood of miszbabykiss at www.imood.com is how I feel now

Name: perisblurbs

Date of Birth: November 5

"With a birthday on the 5th of the month you are inclined to work well with people and enjoy them. You are talented and versatile, very good at presenting ideas. You may have a tendency to get itchy feet at times and need change and travel. You tend to be very progressive, imaginative and adaptable. Your mind is quick, clever and analytical. A restlessness in your nature may make you a bit impatient and easily bored with routine. You may have a tendency to shirk responsibility".
