Blowtorch

"I love working till I drop. I love looking back on the day and knowing I
put another book online. That's what I'm here for.
If I feel like I'm crashing, I eat. If that doesn't work,
I sleep. I live by the nanosecond and burn the candle at
both ends. With a blowtorch."
    --Michael Hart, head of Project Guttenberg

My lifestyle reminds hobgadling of this quote. 
hmmmm... It makes the packing of so much activity in my life, that I wear my body down to the point sickness, sound almost glamorous.
I'm glad he helps me slooooooooooow dooooooooooown.
I'm trying to work more towards Quality,...... not Quantity... 
but it's almost impossible to cut activities out of my life during this busy holiday season.

I'm going to Hawaii next Friday to spend 2 weeks with my Brother's Family. 
I'll be on the Oahu/Honolulu Island most, if not all the time I'm there.

What are the things I should not miss while I'm there?

Sand. Sun. Surf. Sittin'. Sexiness.

Glad you have someone to slow you down.

Speaking of too much activity all the time, are you rampaging into the evening on Saturday, or just bussing during the day?

Into the evening
Into the evening... Of course. I'll be drinking the Redbulls and Vodka.
We'll pickup Hobgadling at Hickory Street Grille at 7ish... I can't imagine I'll stay out late, late style, but who knows. Santarchy is not something I'm willing to give up. But that's part of the problem. There so much fun to be had, and my life is short. I don't want to give up anything.

Things I did...
Watched gigantic wave surfing on the North Shore
Watched the sun set from Waikiki Beach; actually tried surfing, failed laughingly
Driving to the top of Diamond Head

If you get to Maui, drive to the top of Haleakala, but bring a jacket - it's so windy up there it feels like it's about 40F. At the top, look down and you'll see the divers in the collapsed crater off the nearest edge of the island. I didn't get a chance to dive this last trip (we didn't make reservations in time) but you should if you can, the water is so clear and colorful. I don't know about the diving off Oahu.

If you get to the big island, helicopter over Kileaua. :)

Yeahhh! I will be off work from 12/14 on!
We will be in California after 12/24, but there are plenty of days to play!
What are your plans? I know your brother is here, so you have a tour guide, but if he's working or busy, I can help!!
Is your new man coming, too???? I'm so excited!

No, my man isn't coming with me... The longest we've been apart since we started dating is 4 nights, and that was tough. I have a feeling I might run out of phone mins this month. ;)

I'm very excited! Yea!! funfun! I'll see if I can firm up some plans... Do you want to come with me to the big island for a couple days or something like that? May we go diving together? Of course, Dan and the babe are welcome to come too. Yay!

We haven't gone diving in a while....you may be just the reason we need to get back to it. We haven't been to the Big Island yet. What are your plans? I really want to see the volcanoes.

Hi Hon,
Your old phone num doesn't work... And I would like to call.
If you don't want to post your num... just post it, and then erase it immediately and it will only go to my email...

Take a flight to the Big Island to see the volcano.
The power of the Earth is mindblowing.

And my favorite place on Oahu is Hanauma Bay.
Have fun!!
