Back to the Future

On my way home. Courtesy of the International Dateline, I'm on my second Wednesday of the week. The way my travel schedule's been, if it weren't for birth control pills I'd have no idea what day it is. So now what? I guess I should've cut Wednesday in two and just taken half yesterday...um...today.

Currently in Honolulu at a hotel by the airport that is dying to be authentic. They have ukelele music playing in the lobby, a bowl of macademias on the counter, and they say 'kaumaha' after they slice your foot with your suitcase wheel and then cheerfully point out that you're getting 'koko' all over the 'papahele'.

I left Kwajalein, Marshall Islands on Wednesday, Part A. That may be the most beautiful place I've ever been in my entire life. The color of the water there is so incredible that if you tried to paint it, it would look too fake to sell to even the least discerning hotel chains. Except maybe this one. Actually, if you drew a giant laughing hibiscus in the foreground it would probably hang behind the front desk.

The flight was uneventful, finally. Although my luggage appeared on the carousel soaking wet and smelling like tuna. I just threw it in the closet and will leave it there until it flakes easily with a fork.

Bedtime. Going to try not to get any 'koko' in my 'moena'. Especially since I'm out of birth control.
