Welcome Makepagirl! Yeah, that's pretty south. I'm sure you'll knock 'em dead here in October, accent or not. I married a southern girl myself (from Florida), so I know.

How did you keep the Hawaiian spirit alive way over there? Have you had much Hawaiian food in Georgia? Be sure to bring some of that barbeque... it's one of the few things I really loved about visiting the in-laws.

And a belated Happy Birthday to you!
