Happy Kamehameha Day!

Time to get out that hula skirt and the coconuts again!  

It's Kamehameha Day!  

Can you believe I almost missed this important national holiday?  Why wasn't it on the school calendar?  Surely it should be cause for celebration.

Now it's been a long time since I put on a hula skirt and somehow I think it might not be exactly what everyone's looking forward to seeing.... even if I ply them with perfect poi, a succulent roasted pig and fermented coconut juice.  

It just ain't happening!

So, kind readers, I'll just have to fashion little paper leis to put on the black construction paper cat silhouettes in the windows and call it a day.  Or perhaps Hickory the Wonder Dog can be convinced to wear a lei made of doggy biscuits.  

For now, I'm off to Blockbuster to see if they have Gidget Goes Hawaiian or Elvis's Blue Hawaii for my evening's entertainment.

Aloha! I like going to my island place (in my mind) with Jimmy Buffet:)

Oooh, I love those old Hawaii-based movies! So awesome. said...

To the Right Reverend Sister P: I go lots of places in my mind... It's the best kind of vacation. (And I'm so much thinner there.)

To Miss Yvonne: Perhaps you'd like to star with me in a remake of Gidget Goes Hawaiian?

This must have passed me by in all the hurly burly. I'm not sure how the grass skirt would work in London, but it may be worth a try. said...

We could all get together for a revival of the Gidget television series. I, of course, would get to play Gidget's bosom friend, Larue! (So what if I spell mine a little differently.)
