Your Hawaiian Word of the Week #11

This week’s letter is brought to you by the letter “n” and the word of the day is

no’ono’o Thought, reflection, meditation, thinking: to think, reflect, to consider, as a case as law; thoughtful.

If you (or anyone) has been paying attention, you will know that my life and consciousness is colored by this trip to Hawaii I am planning….There are a couple of options for accommodations….hotels, condos, cabins.. All dependent upon the number of girlfriends who will accompany me, and so far, only one friend has bought her ticket….

So I wondered, does that mean only one other person will come with me? If so, that’s fine. I’ll actually end up with some time alone on the island, which would not be my preference, but would be interesting….

It’s something to think about anyway.

OH MY GOD!!!! I did it! I pushed the “Pay Now” button and I AM GOING TO HAWAII!

I have never spent this kind of money on myself ($400) frivolously before. I feel sick.

Are you with me?

Your Hawaiian Word of the Week #10

Happy new year! It was a fun NYE, we played games to ring in the new year, then, like an old married couple, went to bed. The kids stayed up, begged to get drunk so I fed them nasty wine…It will be a long time before they want to drink wine again.

This week is brought to you by the letter “m” which was overwhelmingly represented by:

Mahimahi. Now I have to tell you, all my life, I thought Mahimahi was shark. I just found out it’s DOLPHIN! EEEEEEWWWWWW! I’ll never eat it again. Poor Flipper!
