more ferns...and Kona Coffee

oh yeah, the FERNS!

Here you go, the Fern Series.

Aloha and Mahalo, Hawaii!!!

Had an amazing time in the Hawaiian islands. Wish I could have stayed longer, and I was so tempted to skip the ship last night and spend the night in Waikiki. If only. Anyhow, had an awesome time today. Went on a cloud forest tour atop (well, pretty high up) the volcano where they harvest Kona Coffee. Decided after looking at my photos that I will now do a "Fern Series" since I have so many series already. Here you go, there are tons. Enjoy. Hopefully they will evoke some sort of emotion, as I am trying to bring emotion into my photos.

Maui, Hawaii

So Happy Easter all. Hey, Amy, I watched Jesus Christ Superstar last night and thought of you and I when we used to sit up and watch it on Easter Eve... wow.

Here are pics from my whale watching experience in Maui... yes, we saw whales of the oceanic kind.

Other stuff is just stuff. More pics tomorrow, I hope from Honolulu!!!

Happy Easter!

Pago Pago, American Samoa

Heard the Stars and Stripes played by the Marine Corps band while I was on tour... made my day, considering Mr. O (not you, Paul) ruined pretty much of the rest of the day. Let's see... the bus broke down, it was really hot, like Africa hot, Mr. O was an embarrassment to the human race, and overall the day was pretty crappy. Not to mention I had to do Shimmy again last night for a less than half full house.

Mr. O is a passenger on board from somewhere in the Ukraine or Russia, or I really don't care where, just as long as our paths never cross again. He and his less than lovely wife were on the same tour as I. We visited a sacred site where the locals did a Kava ceremony. During the sacred ceremony, Mr. O in all his divine wisdom, decides to stand up in front of everyone while the ceremony is going on, and take pictures about a foot away from the people performing the ceremony. What an asshole. Man, he really pissed me off. Then he proceeded to go to the dancers' dressing room (during their show) and take more pics of them as they were trying to go onstage. Who the fuck did he think he was? Sorry for the profanity, but it really works me up. Obviously. I of course can't say anything, for fear of losing my job, but he offended so many people that I hope all his kids and their kids end up gay so his family name stops. Wow. Am I ready to come home, or WHAT? Ha! Get me to Hawaii already!

Spent most of today fixing my costumes for our next show because I have gotten so FAT. Yuck. Major self-esteem issues these days. I gotta get home. I miss everyone there.

Mom and Dad made it through the storms okay, and shaken, but not stirred. Thank you, Lord.

Apia, Samoa

Pics from today's adventure in Samoa... our tour guide "Rachel" was actually a transgendered male, and it wasn't until the very end of the tour that the passengers even realized Rachel was really a man. I thought the make up covering the stubble was a dead giveaway... hmmm.

Don't ask me how to pronounce it... I have no idea. But here are some pics from it.
