    Lucky for us, we get another chance. It was still a fun evening.

    Sorry to hear what happened, but I'm glad you'll get another shot at it. Soon, I hope! We'll be looking forward to your opinion.
    (And sorry I missed the earlier post, but I'm not much of a movie buff at all. Other than going to the premier showing of the sailing movie "Morning Light" a couple of weeks ago, I literally can't remember the last time I went to see a movie. Probably because my standards are so high -- I feel that the greatest movie ever made was "In Search Of The Holy Grail." And second best movie ever was "Blazing Saddles." )

    No thread drift here. Thinking about Monty Python was the best part of today.
    So far.

    Chinatown tour! It was cool to experience Chinatown thru Auntie's experience. I learned some things I never knew, saw some things I never noticed, and got to appreciate Chinatown in a new way.

    And on the way home we found a good Greek place, and had some great falafel sandwiches...mmmmmmmm.

    Got to do a harbor cruise out at Keehi Lagoon today!
    Thoroughly enjoyed the day aboard my friends 28' sailboat.
    On thy back to the dock we happened upon a 14' fishing boat.
    We ended up towing them to the boat ramp since their engine quit.
    It's great when a good deed equals fun. Really liked talking with the guy.

    I'm up just for a bit.

    Yes. Best Part of Today was giving my Chinatown Tour to Seeking Penance, Beau, TurtleGirl, and Sven. Stopping for some water and sprite at Club Kekai's. Plus singing couple of songs. heheheh

    But it didn't end there.

    SP, Beau and I went to my hale to pick-up picnic supplies and t-bone steaks, ny steak. We stopped at Foodland for potato/macaroni salad, rice, chips, water, ice-tea, some noodles salad and pastele. And Ice.

    We went to Magic Island and had ourselves a picnic.

    SP suggested we head out to Kaena Point Park to watch the sunset. So we did. It was beautiful. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

    Love and ALOHA,

    I was 1st on line to vote this morning at Ala Wai School and got interviewed by...
    Manolo Morales!
    My answers were...
    Obama, because he has a real heart and cares.
    Kobayashi, because I like her ideas especially "Rubber on concrete".
    No on rail, because "Steel on steel" is being forced on us and it's old technology.
    Double-decked toll freeway is a lot smarter way to go. Much more useful.
    No on Con/Con, because I don't feel it's necessary.
    Life is either an adventure... or you're not doing it right!!!

    the results just announced that Obama will become the next president is certainly one of the high points of my life, not just today!

    It is wonderful, stupendous, and any other "big" word you could come up with that finally, we HAVE overcome!

    best part of this morning is seeing what eric was doing while i was in bed, avoiding writing papers, and he was at the computer, avoiding sleep:

You almost couldn't blame the poor dog as he was kept chained outside 24/7 on a piddly patch of turf.

    Although it took a combination of informative letters, visits from police, notices from the Humane Society, a few shirtless confrontations and a blast or two from the 152 dB air horns in my truck, the neighbors did finally get it: We weren't going to stand for their thoughtless ways.

    The beagle family now walk their dog daily and keep their dog inside like how you're supposed to care for a beagle. And we now enjoy uninterrupted sleep as Serta intended.
    now that eric and i rarely enter the halls of HT due to work & work (him) and work & school (me), it's not often i get to enjoy his writing. his emails and text messages are typically stoic/japanese/vulcan in their brevity, though they're sometimes more emotive, like newspaper headlines.

    ah well. gotta put my nose to the grind with the papers--easily the worst part of today. eventually, i'll have to rouse eric from his slumber. poor guy is congested and achy as heck. having he habit of working the graveyard shift with his face in front of a computer monitor is never any help for him getting rest on the nights he is is home, and now it's exacerbated by phlegmy hacking. his voice might be more sexily gravelly than usual, but green expulsions of bodily fluids? ew.

    K-den.

    I have a new job. Again.

    Well, the one at Iroquois Point was good. I enjoyed my fellow employees and supervisor. But the days and hours were not consistent. I was On call. So, I went looking for another job and found one. It's better pay. Near home, M-F. The hours 8-4.

    I start Thursday.

    Everything happens foa a reason.

    God is awesome.
