holy crap. we get on a plane in an hour and a half to leave. it's quarter after nine here. we arrive in minnesota at two pm tomorrow. then back to work wednesday and school starts thursday evening. my minor panic attack is bubbling under the surface. and the whole damn airport here does not sell chewing gum! what kind of crazy shit is that? that's all i got. i did finish a book on vacation. it was my maternal grandmother's originally. called the labrynth and was published in 1944. had some very interesting views that have not changed at all from the war then and the war now. and it used the word "wonky". that made me giggle. oy i'm ready for a nap.

i've discovered that i do not have the stomach for ufc fighting. it was the battle between the two Pauls from england and one gave the other an elbow to the forehead. That two inch long gash had blood everywhere. and that's all of the fight that i saw. i stared at my greasy fried garlic bread and tried not to gag as i sipped my beer. yuck i don't know if i've ever been so ready for the beach.

I'm loving the camera on this phone and my ability to post pictures directly. Here's waikiki beach and diamond head. That mountain is just breathtaking. Water is warm too. :)

Leave for Hawai'i tomorrow morning! Just in time for the major cold snap we are beginning.

I am so excited I can hardly stand it.

Luckily work has been busy enough to keep me occupied for most of the day. Otherwise I would just be completely unable to sit still.

Hopefully if we actually manage to leave by 5:30 tomorrow morning we won't hit rush hour too bad.

Hopefully.

blech.

Quick!

  • Not a kidney stone. Got some antibiotics and feeling better!
  • New news! I will be a bridesmaid in Gary and Terryll's wedding in June!
  • Researching rain gardens... Maplewood, Minnesota has done some neat things. I don't know yet if its feasible at our house, but it'd be nice if our laundry room didn't flood every spring!
  • Does anyone know of a good book or two on XML and .NET? New projects at work and it will need to be European compatible (being owned by a French company and all...)
  • Hey Karma, be nicer to everyone who has had babies very recently or will be having babies very soon! No more gestational diabetes, carpal tunnel syndrome, liquid filled cysts and labor horror stories. I mean it!
  • Oh yeah. The lab technician (James) at the clinic on Friday just happened to be the same guy I worked with at Sears in the Electronics department who also was the president of the fraternity across the street from me at my first apartment. Talk about the world getting smaller! I still remember him dressed up as a drunken sailor for Halloween one year...
  • Busy weekends this month: company party this weekend, Hawaii next weekend (missing [livejournal.com profile] princess_nicci's bridal shower), then [livejournal.com profile] motogeek's poker party.


Ok, so maybe not that quick. heh.

I'm not quite sure which of these two I like best. They were both taken at the beginning of a trail up to Manoa Falls on Oahu. What do you guys think?

At the top of Diamond head, if you zoom in really close, you can see this lighthouse and the churning ocean waters just beyond it.
