Milky Cereal....

I just returned after a 2 week vacation from Western Samoa. Man does it suck to be back into an office with pants and shoes on ! All i've worn for the last 2 weeks is flip-flops and board shorts but today I had to put on the dreaded shoes. My feet hate me... if they were a person they would take a baseball bat to my face for forcing them inside a pair of shoes.

Samoa was amazing. Paradise. Untouched, unspoiled beaches and forests. The people are massive ! I was average size there... and it felt good, I mean real good. Fell in love with the locally brewed beer, Vailima, so I wanted to invest in a Vailima shirt.
At the shirt stall the lady asks me what size shirt I need and I give my usual answer, "the biggest you got." So she replies, "ok, here's a 6x." it was a friggin' tent, so I said i just need a 2x and she's looks at me and smiles, "so you want the smallest size." Man it felt good to buy the smallest shirt in stock.

Lot's of beaches, lots of coastal drives, fire dances, fresh coconuts & seafood, traditional tattoo's, turquoise water and kava.

Will put up pics soon.


I just discovered a great online show called Red vs. Blue. Might be one of the best concepts ever. The episodes average about 2-3 mins in length and the dialog is HIGH-larious. Check it out.
