-__- even the new year's eve was a party poop because my whole house was sick. however, it didn't deter us pyromaniacs from setting a fire or two at midnight but that is a story for next time...
this week i'm trying to do more fun things before its back to school. i am really enjoying this come-home-from-work-and-take-a-nap thing. if i had another week off from school i might enjoy it too much and never go back!
i'm reading two books right now.
EDGE by Koji Suzuki
so far, a reporter is investigating several unsolved disappearances. in another [so far] unrelated chapter, several computers are calculating π and coming up with wrong answers. some math and physics grad students are investigating. i can't wait to see how these two plots are going to converge...
THE CHECKLIST MANIFESTO by Atul Gawande
i've been waiting to read this for several months! so far, Dr Gawande described a major problem with today's medical practice: information overload. even with more staff and more specialists, things can still get missed and one error can mean life or death. info overload is not isolated to health care either. any job that requires multi tasking or is high complexity has the same problem.

A YEAR OF DISAPPEARANCES by Susan Hubbard
but i haven't started reading it yet. i might not end up reading it because i have to return it soon and Society of S
gets only average marks from me. if want a vampire story, i think The Quick

on tuesday i went on a bike ride. i tried to go the length of king street cycle track but the beginning was blocked by construction. :(
i went to kcc to get some paperwork. i went around diamond head. i climbed a tree so i could hang upside down (one week without aerial and i'm having withdrawals, haha. i really needed to stretch my back and test my arms!). i went to magic island and gazed at the ocean.
i ate shave ice.

:9 so tasty! i could eat that every daaaaaaay...
i just came home from work so i'm going to attempt a nap. and then today, maybe yoga. or, watch interstellar. (am i the last person on this island to see it? i hope its still even in the theatre!) and buy groceries and go to the post office.
also, i have this song stuck in my head for the past few days:
