    today was a totally fun day for me. i joined some girlfriends at nordstrom at 8am for their makeup trend show. before our makeover at MAC, one of my friends and i had brunch at panya (omelet for her; laksa for me). we followed that up with bra fittings at victoria's secret, shopping at sephora, getting our nails done at solar nail, then our makeovers. i haven't gone on a shopping/treat myself excursion like this in many months and i have to say, it was very enjoyable, esp since i've been home for two weeks, wheezily hacking like a phlegmy, wild-haired, sullen-eyed hag trying her best to expel her lungs and other innards.

    later, i joined eric at a kalihi korean sports bar for really tasty ahi belly, spicy ika and coors lights while watching the pacquiao-cotto fight. i was gratified to see the pinoy win via tko in the 12th round. pinoy pride aside (and not being knowledgeable about boxing), i was amazed at how quickly pacquiao would avoid getting hit while still making some punches of his own.

    after that, eric and i stopped at nijiya market for some desserty stuffs. and they'll be yum!

    I drove through some flooded roads and didn't die. Made it home 2 hours before the Pacquiao-Cotto fight--first time I had no problems with a PPV sporting event on OTW.

    Rebuilt my computer in a Cooler Master case, now it looks more like a work of art instead of a computer, and it's running lightning fast again.

    The best part of today was spending time with Auntie Lynn. I started off by visiting her at her hale with both of us telling each other what we've been doing and how our lives are going.

    Then sharing a tasty lunch at Mabuhay where we had kare kare and crispy pata. I feel very fortunate to have Auntie Lynn as a very dear and close friend.

    Thumbs up Re: Best Part of Today

    I had a meeting near Waikiki this afternoon. I rarely drive over the hill (I'm addicted to the windward side) but since I was already there I took advantage of it to go to the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and catch the group Kapala at the beachfront Mai Tai Bar there. One of the members of the group is an old friend of some of us HTers -- Shawn Ishimoto. (Formerly known as BB Shawn.) Shawn looks good and sounds as fabulous as always. What a gifted musician!
    (BTW, another member of Kapala is the well-known Zanuck Lindsey.)
    Kapala plays there on Tuesday nights from 6pm to 10pm. Valet parking is free for four hours with a validated parking stub. Go see 'em, and you'll come back and say it was the best part of your day too.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    The best part of today was throwing the glove (gauntlet) down in front of a buffoon, and the buffoon refused to pick it up - branding himself a coward for all time.

    Having coffee, and going over what i have left to do for Christmas. I'm done with shopping . I just need to wrap, do cards and package two things for mailing. Mailing is easy now -- I can either use the outside postage machine or buy a mailing label online -- no more standing in line.

    I just got their CD in the mail this week - I'll try to listen to it today. Lopaka Ho`opi`i is in the band, too, as is talented multi-instrumentalist Abe Lagrimas, Jr.

    I remember Shawn's contributions to an album with Ray Sowders; that's one of my favorite Hawaiian CDs.

    Whoa! Just caught and clubbed a sneaking, disgusting RAT in here.

    Only one rat. But he's literally bigger than all his siblings scurrying around in Chinatown.

    Threw that filthy, disease-carrying vermin into the trash bin outside, where the ants and the elements will pick his carcass apart.

    Whew! Glad to have him out of my face and off of my mind.

    Now I can get back to enjoying HT.

    Excellent! One dead rat is equal to several hundred unborn rats.

    I use Havahart traps, live capture and release, because I have a Democrat for a spouse, and I need to keep her happy.

    Lessee... Maybe I should release in Chinatown instead of Halawa?

    NOT! Only kidding....

    But, the Humane society won't take them; SPCA isn't interested; no 'science experiments' begging.... Obviuously Frankie don't want them.

    What to do?

    Keep releasing in uninhabited areas till someone tells me better.

    GOOD KILL FRANKIE!

    Now, I'm not exaggerating, Lynn...... Okay well, maybe just a lil' bit.

    A few years ago on a late afternoon stroll through Chinatown, I did actually spot what I thought was a stray cat crawling on top of a garbage pile on a sidewalk left by a vendor. It was only when I got closer that I realized the darn thing was a huge rodent!!! It darted away from the garbage and into an alleyway. Now that bugga was BIG.

    Having one of those really good laughs. You know the kind- when you just laugh and laugh and can't stop, and your stomach hurts and your face is red, but it's just so funny. And when you're done, you feel so much better. Like having a good cry, only so much better because your face isn't swollen and your nose isn't all snotty. I don't get to have those kinds of laughs very often anymore, but I needed it and enjoyed it.

    TG and I used to laugh like that. And I miss her so much. Happy late Birthday, sweetie!

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Wow! When I logged on to this thread, I has no idea that this would be the best part of today!!! Thanks SG, I miss you all the time!! Happy holidays to you, your man, and your doggies! Hey, remember those awesome ornaments you gave us last year? Yep, they're on the fiber optic christmas tree!!

    So, the other best part of today is FLORIDA!!! Happy holidays to all from America's Wang!! I'm relaxing by the river, there's pelicans, seagulls, and a giant osprey! I even saw a parrot earlier! Aaaaahhhhh, days like this....!

    waking up to my snoring sweets was the best part of my day at that point, esp since i was waking up after dreaming i was still living with my ex, with nothing in the refrigerator to eat. bleh.

    as eric said while snuggling close to comfort me, that's my personal version of hell.

    day got even better when i called up my mom this morning to thank her for her christmas presents (she insisted we open the box as soon it arrived) and to tell her about goings-on at work and between me & eric. there used to be a time when the relationship between momola & me was not so warm. in fact, there was a three-month long period 12 years ago where we never spoke.

    no matter what material gifts i get for christmas, nothing can top the gift of having such relationships with my mom & eric. the world is a more colorful, brighter place, even on its darker days, for me because of them. i wish that everyone had that sort of comfort. i know i'm very lucky.

    Sadly, I left VS behind a cup size ago. I have found they fit much better when I was not so..ahem...busty. You go, TG, with your hot underoos! I will cheer you on from the frumpy Dillard's section.
