Derek left for Madison yesterday and I decided to stay an extra two days with my girlfriend, Chris, in the northern ‘burb of Marysville.
And neither she nor her roommate, Sammi, a 10-year-old umbrella cockatoo, has Internet.
So I can’t easily update my blog — or much else — in the next couple of days.
But I will tell you what to expect in my new few blogs:
• Chris and I did a food tour of Pike Place Market with Savor Seattle yesterday — and let’s just say I learned a lot.
• We walked around Belltown and the Seattle Center, where we’re heading today for lunch, before heading to my new favorite specialty store in Seattle: Uwajimaya. There are things you can’t get in Hawaii but can get here!
• Of course, what trip to the Mainland is complete without a visit to Trader Joe’s?
• Finally, for the very first time — and despite having lived in Chicago — I actually ate at the Olive Garden. Apparently, when you’re there, you’re family.
So lots to look forward to. I promise I’ll get something uploaded the next time I’m in the vicinity of Internet connectivity.
Until then, soak up that Hawaii sunshine for me. I haven’t seen the sun — what was that again? — in days!

We had Kona wind during this past weekend again, muggy, sticky and voggy.
Uwajamiya, there is one near the Microsoft campus close to where I used to work. I used to buy Aloha drinks, Aloha shoyu, and other things that allowed me to keep in touch with the islands. Haven’t thought about that place in a while. Great store.
Can’t wait to read about where you went, what you ate, and all that good stuff.
Oh, Sammi is so cute!
