today was a long travel day, but i've arrived in HAWAII (!!!) safe and happy. it was nice to take a whole day off of work to read my book and watch movies, even though i was stuck in seats on airplanes the whole time! i'm in hilo on the big island listening to the loudest, highest pitched frogs i've ever heard! i'm tired enough that i think i'll sleep pretty well despite the loud noise!
i've been a pretty successful vegetarian lately, but i admit that i really really enjoyed the ahi tuna i had for dinner tonight! one thing i dont miss about eating fish and meat though, is the bits of food that inevitably get stuck in my teeth. its only fish, meat and popcorn that cause this annoyance. anyway, i'm looking forward to eating more fish over the next two weeks!
saturday i'll be heading up to the summit of mauna kea for 4 nights of observing with the gemini telescope. here are some pictures from my visit to CSO on mauna kea in 2003. i wonder how much has changed.
a new space carnival was published today, er... i mean yesterday. not too long of one, but good reading nonetheless!
