The Christmas Gift of Aloha.

Aloha5.jpgNote: thumbnails seem to have been temporarily (I hope!) disabled, so I fear you guys are gonna have to deal with big pictures. Sure, I could resize them, but… too bad. Christmas is the day after tomorrow already.

Last Friday Joy & I headed down to Ala Moana (Japan’s) Shopping Center for a little exercise & possibly even some gift purchasing (wishful thinking). Lo & behold, there was our friend & fellow WoW player Bryan starring as Mele the Christmas Menehune on the Ala Moana Center Stage in Ohi’a Productions’ “The Christmas Gift of Aloha.”

I’ve never tried to photograph stuff under stage lights before, so don’t expect any good pictures. They will probably be as bad as my leech photos. Joy & I both took a truckload of photos & none of them came out good. I had dinner with a photographer friend the other night & he said that stage lighting messes him up too, so now I don’t feel so bad.

Bryan is co-owner of our current hangout (hey, gotta support the guildmate!), Slammers Bar & Grill, located off Kapiolani Avenue near Brian’s Billiards. They have great food & delicious Jager Bombs & I know that plugging the bar in this article isn’t going to save me from Bryan’s wrath the next time we visit his place but, you know, I had to try.

Warning: clicking to continue reading this blog will subject you to many relatively large photos.

Again, sorry about the big pictures. I did do a little resizing.

We also saw our friend Devon, looking cheerful as ever. It was a great show, as always. You guys rock.

Once the show was over, Joy & I went back to our shopping, giggling evilly to eachother with no small amount of fear of retribution once we published our photos. Yes, it was an odd feeling. And then we saw the Candy Cane Train coming through the mall.

In the end, we didn’t accomplish much shopping. We did, however, have a great deal of fun.

Don’t kill us, please.

Merry Christmas everyone. =)

    Wow. I have no doubt dropped from Seki’s “Need to kill” list for my “Where your slippaz?” cracks.

    That being said, I can only assume no one will be safe from his rage. It will be widespread and far reaching. Think scorched earth.

    You’re so fired Lauren.

    I think the pictures turned out a whole lot better than we thought they would. At least we didn’t yell out, “WE LOVE YOU SEKI!!!!” or “GO BRYAN GO BRYAN YOU ROCK!!!!!” Damn, next year we gotta make some signs and shit!!!! ^^
