Enter the Hawaii

So I have done what all Americans seem to do at some point either much earlier than my current age or a lot later than my current age, in that, I have gone to Hawaii. For those who know me and my dislike of the whole tourist thing, you might ask, why? Simple. Due to needing to remain in the US for awhile and the fact that my birthday has generally sucked in the past, and that I am “forever and truly” with another Capricorn who also has crappy birthdays in this wintry time, we ran away, thumbing our noses at any and all attempts to have birthdays where we lived.
We are here now and it is interesting. It’s both as foreign as it should be and also not as foreign as it should be if that makes sense. There are so many other white folk from the mainland here escaping as well, that it doesn’t really feel like we’ve gone all that far. At points in driving around Maui, I just feel like I’m in Northern California when everything is green. It’s quite strange. Our explorations have really just started, so we’ll see where Maui, Kauai, and Oahu (very briefly) get us.
Oh yeah, Aloha Airlines is one of the cheapest ways to get here, but I can’t really recommend them. They’re on time, but because they’re so cheap, you get all the other cheap travelers on the plane with you, such as this one woman who repeated, “I can’t wait!” so loudly that everyone could hear it within a five row radius. Also, there is basically no meal despite the flight being five hours. Yeah, there’s some chicken sandwich thing and a cookie before you land, but they’re pretty week (thank god for plate lunch in Hawaii.) Also, you need to pay for headphones to hear the movie or anything else, so bring your own, even though it will be in mono.
But, here we are, celebrating weather in the low 80’s in the middle of January. I know I’ll need to keep my bitching to a minimum, but I make no promises. Oh, actually, I’m going to break that with the next article, so nyah, nyah, nyah.
