Dear Ike's Really? $11 for this? Today I got my first paycheck from my new job. I am very pleased about this and decided that although I always bring my own lunch to work, today I was going to celebrate and buy my lunch. I was excited to see Ike's across th...

Lemuring Around - a dream
I don't believe dreams are prophetic. I don't think one receives knowledge in a dream that isn't already swimming around in one's brain. I do believe, however, that dreams can help to sort out one's thoughts, bring to light one's anxieties, fantasies, and f...

Friday Treat - An Open Letter to Chai Cart
About 2 months ago or so I spent the better part of the week in the hospital. Not a super fun time, but the docs patched me up just fine and I'm good as new. Whilst there, I had no coffee. I could have, but hospital coffee is a delicious as their Salisbury ...

In Which I Watched the News and Talked About Tigger
NOTE- I found this blog post in my drafts file. Thought I'd clean it up and post it. So it was a Sunday in October 1991. I had lived in San Francisco for about 6 weeks. I had just moved into a flat with 2 of my friends and a guy I'd met a few times but didn...

Sometimes when we're learning a new hula, or even sometimes when we've known one for a whle, Kumu will change the choreography ever so slightly, like he had a flash of genius of making that kaholo an 'oniu instead, or to k ūnou at the 2nd ha'ina, but not in...

My Personal Beef with Rod Carew
OK, not really, but he did disappoint me.  I'm sure he's a lovely person and if I ever met him I would shake his hand and tell him how awesome it was to meet him. Rod Carew had an awesome career. I would be incredibly honored to meet him. I played softball ...
