Not To Worry I Noticed Them Too

You may or may not have noticed in my last entry a grammatical error or two. I must admit to you now, I am not that fantastic with grammar or editing my work. Usually when editing I just read what I want it to say instead of what is actually written. I have just realized that perhaps that's a reading problem and not an editing one. I will investigate that situation further at another juncture in time. I have one major pet peeve: further and farther are in fact two separate words with different meanings which cannot and should not be interchanged at the users will.

However, my anger toward people who use further and farther incorrectly was not the intention of this post. The intention is that I have decided which may or may not be a good thing to not get embarrassed by my grammatical misjudgments and to instead embrace them as my own literary personality. By no means am I trying to make a mockery of the English language but rather try not to be so worried about mistyping 'is' for 'it' and 'lines' instead of 'lined.' Also, now I can be totally lazy and let you decode my actual message. See, we both win that way. With my new lack of editing style it is lucky for you this thing has spell check or this would become a game I promise you wouldn't want to play.

Maui's Back Roads

I realized today one of the best things about Maui and as you may have guessed from the title of this blog it is indeed the back roads. Whenever roads were blocked you always had another way around. The back roads were always lines with trees engulfed with wild vines. The sun would shine in through the holes which was nice except on the the road to Kihei (which isn't really a back road anyway) because the holes in the trees were too big making you feel like you were getting a migraine. (see the following photo for reference)

I found out today that one of my favorite back roads (the one to the airport) has been demolished and in its stead will be shops and hotels. I believe slowly but surely the paradise will soon be sucked out of Maui so if you want to see anything worth remembering make sure to vacation there in the near future. Then again maybe not. I could perhaps sell bottles of my memories of the paradise that once was for quite a sum of money. Yes, please do not visit Maui in the near future or ever for that matter and instead by my bottled paradise memories. I promise the packaging will be nice.

Additionally, I just spend the last hour googling photos of my native land's back roads attempting to find exactly the right photo. I then realized I couldn't narrow it down at which point I am left with no other choice then to post them all. So I suppose this is a little taste of what's left of my island paradise and my bottled memories. I will not charge for this initial trial period. Please comment if you are interested in purchasing the bottled paradise memories in full (remember the packaging is going to be awesome).

Falafels and the Blizzard

Boulder just had a pretty sweet blizzard (unless you are one of the unfortunate ones stuck at DIA, or got graduation canceled for good on them, or got their car stuck, or got trapped in their home, or was trying to get out of the state for christmas). Let me rephrase my previous sentence: I thought the blizzard that hit boulder was pretty sweet.

I believe this is mostly due to the fact that on the first day of the storm will and i went on a journey to falafel king for lunch, and as soon as we got in the door they asked us to lock it because they were closing early due to the weather. though i do not have a photo of it, will and i ate our delightful falafel plates then journeyed back into the snow our belly's full of falafel goodness.

The Holiday (2006)

Hotties Pi went to see The Holiday yesterday and besides the $14 concessions the movie was pretty snazzy. I would go to say it is comparable to Love Actually with some LA thrown in there for kicks. The movie was great but what was even better was the ladies sitting behind us.

Usually people talking in movies (especially baby people ie. children) makes me want to scream and beat them up with Jedi moves, but this wasn't the case with these whispering ladies. For a while, they got two of the characters Jude Law and Rufus Sewell confused as the same character. This caused them to think one of the characters was cheating on another so they would say "oh no no no" much like they were watching a scary movie when the characters would interact. This made for a more suspenseful romantic comedy movie watching experience.

They got extremely excited when a plate of fettuccine alfredo made a cameo appearance. They commented on how delicious it looked. The thing was, you couldn't deny how delicious the fettuccine looked. I wonder who got to eat it on the set.

why you too can love arboretums

I sure do love arboretums and I will make a small plee for you to love them too by showing you photographs from the Planting Fields Arboretum State Historical Park. Enjoy your virtual walk through nature.
