Blogging Without a Net

… can’t be done.  That’s why you are so late hearing from me.  The hotel net crashed this morning and it took Oceanic Time Warner a couple of hours to get it back online.  During that time Ella and I went out for breakfast (Amoeba is at work) and took some photos which I will share later.

In the meantime, as Ella and I were returning to the room and the elevator doors opened, a woman charged into the lobby and yelled to her mate as she quick-stepped past us, “Oh! I have to pee!  I can’t believe I let you talk me into coming to Hawaii.  You know when I smell the ocean I have to pee!  Where’s the bathroom?”

Luckily, she spied the bathroom just as she asked the last question.  Ella and I looked at each other as we stepped into the elevator.  We might be strange, but we’re not that strange!


    1. Gigi — I think it would have been more of a surprise if it had happened in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado ….

  1. Fancy telling the world and his wife that you want to pee! I’ve been that desperate would I wouldn’t tell strangers. 😉

    Glad you’re back online. 🙂

    1. Akelamalu, it was the woman who told the world and her husband that she had to pee!

      And as for being back on line, you spoke too soon!

  2. And to imagine she wasn’t on a cell phone — I’m flabbergasted at what people say LOUD in public because they’re on a cell phone. For some reason they often act as if the cone of silence has descended on them. IF ONLY!

    I read the first part of this in my reader, but had to come over to see the rest because it cut off at “Ella and I…” and I just HAD to know what Ella had talked you into doing. Darn! You’re going to have to get more adventurous than that!

    1. Ohhhhh DON’T tempt Ella … if there is one thing I am CERTAIN of, life will get “a bit” more adventurous!

    2. Melli — Ella has stopped my heart a couple of times, but so far she hasn’t done anything horrid. I fear she is saving it for the volcano.

  3. When I saw the first part of this I thought the woman was going to comment on Ella — but it appears she was occupied with a greater need. 🙂 She’s going to be spending much of her vacation in the bathroom if even smelling the ocean does that to her.

    Glad you’re back online!

    Quilly, you are just the right amount of strange for me. For most of us I think!
    I do hope that ‘woman’ (I didn’t say lady) isn’t bunking next to your room. She would keep you awake and annoyed her whole waking hours.
    I don’t think you had time to read my Bon Voyage comment. In it I reminded your to be sure to pack the battery charger for your camera. The grapevine says you forgot it! 🙂
    Enjoy the rest of your time. That time can go by fast.

      Quilly, I am sorry. You did read the comment and I was too late for a reminder to have done any good. Next time I will try harder. 😉

    2. Jim — luckily one can take their camera batteries to Radio Shack and pay a small fee to have them recharged! Isn’t that grand?

  5. Funny. I have to pee when I smell the ocean, too. The chicas and I are going out of town in a couple of weeks, and I worry about Net access. Maybe I’ll just bag blogging for a week…

  6. Hello Quilly

    You do meet the strangest people don’t you. Fancy shouting out that. Sounds like what children do & you tell them off for it.

    If I’d been her friend I’d have shouted back “Well I didn’t twist your arm to come!”.

    1. Winifred — I’d rather go someplace that made me pee then one that made me … oh, well, never mind. You get the idea.

      I am actually quite glad she was this strange. It gave me a qucik, esy blog post!
