Yow!

February 26th, 2004 by Ryan Ozawa · 2 Comments · Miscellaneous

A long-anticipated storm front is finally rolling over Honolulu, and this one ain’t kidding around. The thunderclaps are stronger than any I’ve heard — or felt — in years. Windows are rattling. Car alarms are going off. As I type, the weather satellites are saying the meanest parts are right over our neighborhood. Even deep inside a […]

Appears Reliable

February 24th, 2004 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

Hmm. Not only is Liza’s ex David Gest apparently now living in Honolulu, but he’s also seen my old doctor at Straub, according to The Smoking Gun. Dr. Francis Pien notes: “He is married. Recently purchased a home in Hawaii, also lives on the Mainland.” But it’s Dr. Leo Maher that got the good stuff: […]

Smooches

My new job doesn’t take me to the exotic, international destinations that my old job did, but it is taking me to Hilo next month. So, I’m taking my whole family. Jen and the kids for a whole, glorious, lazy, three-day Big Island trip, but my mother and brother as well for a one-day pilgrimage […]

Buzznet Sucks

February 10th, 2004 by Ryan Ozawa · 3 Comments · Miscellaneous

No notice. No explanation. Unbelievable. Buzznet deleted my moblog. (The photos syndicated at right are now coming from my backup moblog at apparently superior rival TextAmerica.) Usually you’d expect this kind of complaint from someone who posted pictures he shouldn’t have posted. Instead, it’s because Buzznet decided my username was too good to let go.

Information Overload

February 9th, 2004 by Ryan Ozawa · No Comments · Miscellaneous

The scary part of this craigslist post is that he’s only mostly kidding. I thought I was insane to mess with maybe eight or nine of these “social software” sites, and he’s gone and mentioned another half-dozen I’ve not even heard of. I think the FOAF concept makes the most sense, but sadly it’s the […]

A Crowd

Two little pink lines, a lot of panic, and finally, joy. I guess you could say we’re just keeping up with the McPhersons. And yes, we are insane, thank you very much.
