Last Night's Sunset

This was what I got to witness on my drive home from work last night: And wouldn't you know it? This morning it is rainy and thundering! That's Hawaii's weather for you! Oh, ignore the black spot in the foreground of the first picture. Some idiot got her finger in the way! Sign in to see full entry.

I Need To Commune With Nature More

I have realized that the times in my life when I was happiest was when I was out in nature--camping, hiking, stopping to smell the roses. I haven't spent much time communing with nature recently. I get to get back into a one-on-one relationship with nature. But there is a problem: I don't know any... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh Lordy, Has It Ever Been Raining!

Days and days and days of rain! Sure, we do need it! And sure, it'll make everything green later. But boy do I feel waterlogged! Keep in mind that these pictures were taken in the middle of the day! Isn't it dark out!? Sign in to see full entry.

Whew! Glad I'm Not Flying Hawaii's Friendly Skies Today!

We are being hit by the remnants of a hurricane right now. Lots of rain. Lots and lots of rain. Earlier I was curled up in bed with a book when I heard some thunder. No big deal, right? It's to be expected with this type of weather. Then a few minutes ago I read the local headlines. What I read... Sign in to see full entry.

Very Unusual Weather We're Having In Hawai`i!

It's the middle of summer. Usually at this time of year we have hot and humid weather--temperatures in the upper 80s or low 90s. Sometimes we'll have some rain, but it's always a warm rain. But today it's been raining a cold rain, and the temperature right now is 68 degrees! I've had to turn the... Sign in to see full entry.

A Few Weeks Ago J And I Went To The Beach. Here Are Some Pictures!

Most of these are just scenery, but the second to the last is J as he finished up diving. And the last, yep, that's me. Sign in to see full entry.

A Slow News Day In The Islands

A couple of days ago I was browsing local headlines online when I came across a story about a girl who had a baby and named it Wholphin. Yes, it is an unusual name for a baby, but does it really warrant its own headline? I went to school with folks with pretty odd names, and I'm guessing they never... Sign in to see full entry.

Jemmie's Hawai`i Is VERY Windy!

Last night the wind started picking up 'round here. It's been rattling the doors and windows. Blew the bathroom door shut early this morning, waking me up. Now it's sucking the vertical blinds out the slightly open screen door. (Door is slightly open so the kitties can get out to get some water and... Sign in to see full entry.

Cinco-De-Mayo Schmayo!

Today ain't no stinking cinco de mayo! Hell no! It's Boys' Day! Any sane person knows that! Put out the fishy flags and lavish all your boys with love and gifts... as if you don't already! In Hawaii, on May 5th, we celebrate Boys' Day (March 3rd is Girls' Day). It's actually a Japanese tradition... Sign in to see full entry.

The Plight Of The Haole In Hawai`i

In Hawai`i, a white person is usually called a haole (common usage means a white person, however the literal meaning is foreigner). Many white people are hated by the locals, causing the white people to claim to be victims of "reverse discrimination." Because of my fair skin, I am often mistaken for... Sign in to see full entry.
