Good for a laugh

Divert your course.

Typically American.

Back in the Bay

I wish I could say its good to be back. Really though it isn't. I would rather be back home. And yet here I am, a little darker, a little calmer, and a lot more relaxed.

Tomorrow I have the day off which I will no doubt spend tending to things related to going back to work on Thursday. I plan on meeting up with Salim the Killer and probably Corey Himself to catch up. If Grody is available I hope to see him as well but there are only so many hours in the day and so so much to catch up on.

On a side note, I have been thinking a lot lately about getting a bit more serious about this blogging thing and actually trying to post less stream of consciousness bull shit and more thought out and polished writing. I've also been thinking about migrating to an actual hosted server with a real URL and everything! Would anyone else be interested? We could team up or something.

We'll see.

Independent Online Edition >Apple blunder gives Gates iPod royalty.

Holy shit.

Though it seems more likely the case of a company falling by the wayside, lacking innovative momentum, and flailing about in an attempt to bring down with it any other company in reach.


This is how the sun sets.

Don't Cry for me Argentina

But this vacation kinda blows. You know what they're thinking, "WTF!? You're in Hawaii!" which is completely awesome in a penultimate things-to-do-before-we-die kind of way. But the truth of the matter is this: you're in Hawaii with your PARENTS.

There really isn't enough beer in the world for this.

And as awesome as the surroundings and local people are; you still feel completely trapped. You could rent a car and explore the island--if you had more money. You could go out and party with your cousins--if you had brought the proper attire and were into clubs (they're all girls), or you could go out with that "friend" you mentioned earlier, but you've had enough of biker bars.

So what does that leave?

Well, there are the beaches. And you have found a new love for all things sand, salt-water and bikini, but they are completely overrun by tourists. Half of which are Japanese and the other half of which are haole so you believe they see the problem there.

There is also your family, but aside from the cousins you mentioned before the rest are completely fucking useless. You call them to see what's going on and maybe set something up but they never, NEVER, call you back. What the fuck.

So what is really left is beer. Beer and books. Beer, books, and movies.

Your parents are going to the first event of your fathers three day high-school reunion this afternoon. They are dropping you off at your aunts' house in Pearl City. She is baby-sitting your cousin's children. All four of them. She does have cable and a DVD player however.

Good thing you started drinking an hour ago.

1220 Local time

PS. Pics coming real soon.

Mac Zoom Trick ( & shameless mac plug.)

Taking advantage of a Quartz effect for a better online video experience (among other things).

This works wonderfully. If you don't have one you should definitely go out and by a mac for this reason alone.

So you just got off the phone with your friend and he found your phone. At first you were relieved but now you're kinda-sorta disappointed since you don't *have* to buy a phone anymore.

It's so much better when you don't have to justify an expense. So now you'll just have to come up with one.

From the beach,


I never liked it anyway...

So you went out with a friend a couple nights ago, he took you over to his friends house to meet a few people and then to his house in Halawa to check out his place.

A few beers were had and then it was on to a dive biker bar in Kailua called "The Creekside." Drunkeness ensued.

When you woke up the next morning you weren't able to find your cellphone.

You still haven't found it.

So you suspended the line until you can buy a new handset when you get back. (Any suggestions?)

Oh well, you never liked that phone anyway.

Hell hath no fury... catching a cold on vacation.

You're currently in the room you and your parents are renting for the duration of your stay in Hawaii. You were watching Star Trek:TNG and getting kind of bored so you plugged in your latptop to recharge it. On the off-hand chance there might be an 802.11 network in the area you turned on your wireless card.

Lo and behold, we have internet!

You're now plugged back into the matrix. Hopefully the shakes with stop.
