Goodbye for now


So leaving the island became even harder now. And my current mainland residence can't help but feel a bit empty. Sometimes leaving the TV on helps.

Thanks Hawaii. For an amazing six years. I look forward to returning to your 'aina. And picking up this blog where I left off.

Nunu, the Greatest


It breaks my heart to tell you that yesterday as we were preparing to all go to the airport Nunu was struck by a car as she crossed the street. She died in my arms.

We are burying her in the Pet Garden at Valley of the Temples in Kaneohe. Nunu hated the water so we couldn't bring ourselves to having her ashes scattered in the ocean. Three months from now you'll be able to find a bronze plaque inscribed with just her name there. If you'd like to leave a flower or a toy, I'm sure she'd love it.

Please understand that I have turned off commenting on this blog because I really can't deal with approving them all. I did go through and label the posts that feature her should you want to go through them.

We love and miss her very much.

"Givitamah!"

One Last Thing Before We Go

Before leaving the island we knew we wanted to do Dining in the Dark at Formaggio Grill in Kailua one last time. This time we really did it right by getting a big group together so we had the room to ourselves. First we put our blindfolds on and they lead us in.
Sit us down.
I made sure I had my protective napkin in place.
And as usual you start with the silverware.
But eventually you just move onto hands.

This was nice.

Hanging in NY with Bobby Moynihan

So the night I did the NY Times talk with Damon, Carlton and Michael Emerson I hung out with Bobby Moynihan from SNL.
It turns out he was a huge LOST fan and even met me once before when I was in NY for the Todd McFarlane toy release.

My favorite part of the evening was when Kelsey Grammer came over to our table to congratulate me. We had both been in the movie Good Humor Man together.
Suddenly these two Scottish women were right on his heels asking me for a picture. Without missing a beat, Kelsey volunteers to take it.
It was kinda surreal.
They had no clue who he was.

Almost Made It


Damn. This cup survived the trip from New York to San Francisco to Honolulu. And then as I'm looking for something in my suitcase I set a bag down too hard and I heard the ominous "clink."
