2.Loi Krathog. In Thailand, on the full moon usually in November, people let go of thousads of these paper lanterns and they float up. It has become the next thing on my travel list. It looks unbelievable. think it looks like heaven, actually. Sure, I haven't gotten to Peru yet, but when we have to go back to Asia for Nick to see all six continents, this is where we're going.
3. The little command strips that hold up christmas lights. Best invention ever. We put everything up tonight, and I am not sure if I am more excited about our aparment being dreamy and christmasy, or that in the process of decorating we actually cleaned a little.
4. All about Eve. While Nick was laying around in his nyquil stupor this weekend, we actually watched something off of our classic movies list. All about Eve was pretty freaking badass and offered more rich interesting female characters than contemporary films can boast. Its really something that this movie could really pass the Bechdel test. I mean, we are basically talking about a bunch of career women using men as pawns to get what they want, because they really care about what they are doing. Bette Davis was pretty fantastic, and it was cool to see Marilyn Monroe being a hoot. Five out of FIve for me. Nick didn't like it as much, but I am pretty positive he didn't know what was going on.
5. Huggo's on the Beach. It may be my favorite restaraunt on the Big Island. Sure, it is a little touristy, but I like eating at a place where I can literally take my shoes off. Also, their lobster bisque was super delicious and you can have yummy mexican seafood stuff while listening to local musicians play. There are other places which are pretty great (the restaurant at the Harbor for one), but that one is definitely climbing the list. All the other tourist haunts are just super greasy and trying too hard, but there is an easiness there that I really like. Plus, one of the servers can remember that Mom and Scott are locals, and that always makes them happy.
