i'm behind on my posts and i'm on vacation

considering i just now spell checked and published my june14 post and the keyboard here has a sticky space bar (meaning i constantly have to go back and insert spaces where they didn't register the first time) you'll have to bear with me here, it may take me awhile to catch up with my posts. here is a teaser:

june 15-16: pretended to work, daydreamed about vacation...went out drinking w/ colleagues...did not sleep at all

june 17-19: vegas! drank, gambled (won $200 on lucky number 13 at roulette while dressed like a rockabilly...coincidence, i think not!), took pictures w/ pirates, shopped, ate, gambled some more...did not sleep at all

june19: 5.5 hours of flying and fitfully sleeping. called my dad from honolulu airport to wish him a happy father's day. met up with pete and bought him a mai tai per my dad's request. 5 more hours of flying. arrive in samoa to rain, happy to see my family. sleep for like 10 hours straight.

june 20: have a lavish breakfast of bread and papaya, cocoa rice and samoan pancakes. walk around the village w/ sister and cousin lu'ai...they show us various places to swim...a small local beach...cute but rocky, and these scary swimming holes that look like you can die in. go out to dinner at the nice hotel in town w/ my uncle john and auntie salu...stuff my fat face

june 21: sleep in again :) my mom comes home in the afternoon and gives us a tour of the island. get some swimming in at the beach below tisa's. another dinner w/ uncle tony and auntie salu...more face stuffing ensues, watch a floor show...we are so close to the fire dancers it feels like i am choking on the gasoline used to light their sticks.

today is the first day i wake up before 8...maybe tomorrow i will download some pics and write more details.

pete is a better writer than me and he is here too...check out his blog!

Have fun in Samoa! I guess we won't be going to the Hush Hush this week... well, when you get back for sure!

And... no more foisting blogging duties onto Pete!
