i don't really have much to say right now. a couple weekends ago my mum and i went to pu`uhonua o honaunau (place of refuge) for a cultural festival and saw some cool stuff. if you've got a fast connection and enough time to download nearly 150 megs, check out the video i took of a traditional hukilau. it's really amazing, if i do say so myself, but it's huge.
i try to go snorkeling periodically--ideally i'd be going a few times a week, but for now i've only been going every other weekend or so. i've been thinking about getting a waterproof housing for my digital camera so i can take pictures while i chase fish around the reef. maybe that would encourage me to spend more time in the water.
i finally finished the pair of socks i'd been working on since shortly after i returned from barcelona. they were one of those projects that just get sidelined every time something else comes up... and what did i do as soon as i finished them? of course, i told a friend that i'd make her a pair of socks so i started a new pair. hopefully they'll go quicker!
that's about it for updates. i'm going up to the volcano this weekend to wander around a little and take mum to another cultural festival. it should be fun. other than that, harry potter is playing at the theater, so i may just have to check it out. i'll do my best to keep this updated, and maybe i'll get some pictures posted eventually.
