Ugh-e, muggy Hilo -- currently 78F and 84% humidity with a thick layer of greyness that makes this more like an un-Aloha Friday. Yep, Hilo weather is pretty sucky right now unless you're an amphibian that finds this excess moisture advantageous.

Oregon-oh: Four days and counting...
This afternoon I arranged to have my frequent flier miles converted to a free round trip on Aloha Airlines for my mom. It took a total of two minutes of interaction with the pleasant ticket agent - easy! Now all I have left is to make flight reservations with Hawaiian Airlines on their crappy 1-800 number and pick up Feda and my flight coupons. My choice would've been to fly with Aloha - they've never done me wrong - but a free flight on Hawaiian will have to do for now.

Laundry is being relegated to sunday night since I haven't the energy to battle both natural and created humidity in the basement.
