Was Oakland. Now Honolulu.

The joys of having friends you travel with is that you are working on a deal to use a $50 companion fare and are looking at Oakland first class for $260 a person, and then realize you can go coach to Hawaii with the outside possibility of upgrading for the same amount.

Goodbye Oakland, hello Honolulu. Now I have to find a place to stay.

It only took us two weeks to figure this out. And now I guess that I didn’t actually have to book that Newark flight next week for the miles. Or maybe their is MVP Gold in my future.

This, and trying to bill some hours to pay for it all. On the upside downside since it’s costing me money) is that Raf is doing a great job getting the yard in shape for the dying season.

Trying to figure out how to do Wiki pages is making me WikiMad. Make something, save it, watch it disappear. Shit.

Errands to Fry’s for SOB parts — and I actually got them all installed, though I’m having problems with the new video monitor for the kitchen. Pictures tomorrow. Maybe.

Dinner tonight was a rack of ribs in the convection oven, a nice salad, and some wine.

Raf home at 11 just in time for bed.
