I may have asked before but wat's da one thing dat signal's to you it's Christmas?
For me, it's always been da Downtown Honolulu lights. It's not just at Honolulu Hale but all ovah Downtown. It's something "magical" about them dat wen I see them, I end up staring for a few moments and feel a calm. It's as simple as da string of LED's wrapped around a coconut tree forty feet high or da tops of buildings lit with red and green bulbs instead of da dingy pale off white glow they're usually covered in.
It's da ever changing flashing of colors in a pattern decorating a normally bare unornamented light pole or water sculptures aglow with colors you wouldn't be caught dead wearing yet alone displaying oddah then during dis time.
I especially love da few moments right before dusk as da sun settles into a fiery orange hue mixed with da darkening navy/baby blue sky as stars began to shine their twinkling splendor.
It's a shame dis only happens for about 27 days a year....... unless you live in a P.I. hale in which case your house lights nevah come down off da banisters (you know which ones I stay talking about) or trim and on all da time.
Wassup Wit Dat!
C'mon, now dat was funny.
Wat also signals Christmas time in da WWD! world is da annual WWD! kim chee giveaway! Das right, da one and only time I evah make kim chee - unless it's for special occasions - I offer it right to da WWD! Hui for F to da R to da double E, das right baby..... FREEEEEEE! No worries, M, I know you already all ovah dis.
For all your unrelenting devotion and dedication in reading da mindless dribble of a no holds barred, straight from da heart to da mouth, pupule Korean and all his mishaps, dis kim chee's for you!
All you gotta do is post dat you like. Simple as dat, easy as dat. No hoops to jump, no standing in line a week before, just post dat you like and consider it ready for you opu.
I make 'em in batches so da first batch probably going be ready Sunday, then Tuesday (yes, da eve) and 'den probably da Saturday or Sunday again.
Dis da one and only time I make 'em and it's only shmall kine mahalos to you all.
And no, I still nevah fo'get those who I still owe t-shirts and I'm a man of my word....... although time is my kryptonite.
