Mmmm! Cocoa Puffs! :)  
Mark & I went to Borders this afternoon to see Mark's old childhood friend (and my old high school classmate) Jon Murakami at his book signing. :) It was nice to see Jon after all these years since the last time I really saw him was at our wedding six years ago. :( I'd always known (from as far back as high school) that Jon was extremely talented, but it's so amazing to see how his work has matured over the years! Mark still has all of Jon's old drawings, from when they used to hang out together in elementary school, which he's kept because he knew Jon would become a famous cartoonist one day. :) It's so nice to see him so successful! :)

After Borders, we went to visit my in-laws to pick up some cocoa puffs (from Liliha Bakery) that they received from their neighbor. Last week the neighbor to the right of their house had a HUGE fire at their place (which caused a lot of commotion - luckily no one was hurt) and they came by to drop some goodies off this morning to my in-laws. Only in Hawaii will people actually drop off pastries and other treats to their neighbors after their house burned down to say, "Sorry for the inconvenience!"

On a theatre note, the LA Drama Critics' Circle Awards is going to be held at the Coronet Theatre this coming Monday. I'm usually so anxious to see the nominees, but this year I'm really not too interested... I rarely saw any shows in LA last year so chances are great that I haven't seen any of the nominated performances or know any of the nominated performers. :P

And speaking of award shows, I guess Robby was pretty serious when he said last year's show was the final one (I didn't know since he'd been saying it for years...) It's a shame too because I always enjoyed going to the ceremony (and not only because Kevin seemed to win every year) ;) I miss planning my annual February trip to LA just so I could see it. :(

And on a final theatre note, can I just say how envious I am that a co-worker of mine is currently on his way to NYC as we speak to see "Spamalot" in orchestra seats?? I really need to plan a theatre trip soon, I'm getting waaay too restless out here. :(

Hope you're all having a nice weekend, I'm off to hit the books again since I only have a little over a week before my big exam. :P In case I don't get here in time tomorrow morning, BIG birthday wishes need to go out to beantownboy, who I haven't seen here in a while - but I miss. :( Happy Birthday, Adam!

Inside is chocolate pudding and the top is chantilly frosting! YUM! :D

I've never had the butter rolls from Pa'alakai Bakery, but they sound yummy too! :D

the butter rolls are very bad for you because there's a whole bunch of butter on the bottom of the rolls and when they're warm, they're SO yummy!!
wish they had a website.

Oh, wow - they sound so good! :) Maybe Mark & I will have to take a drive out that way one weekend and taste them! :)

I'm glad that you could meet your friend again. Lately, when you mentioned him, I took a look at his website and I've to say that I like his cartoons very much.

I know cream puffs but the cocoa puffs look more delicious and since I've read what is inside and on top of them I'm sure that I would love them. :) And I really heard for the first time that somebody after their house burned down gives something to the neighbors so I think that you are right when you say that only the people in Hawaii will do that. I'm glad that no-one was hurt.

Hope you had a nice Sunday, Sheri.

Awww, thanks for checking out his page, Sabine! :) Jon's very talented! :D

Cocoa puffs are so delicious! I love chocolate pudding and chantilly frosting and these are the best things I've ever eaten! :D It's a shame you couldn't try one, I know you'd love it. :D

Hope you had a nice weekend too, Sabine! *HUGS* to you and Micki. :)

I'm addicted to them! :D They're so bad for my diet, but they'red so worth the cheating! ;)

yes..they are! I am so bad, I was actually replying to another comment of yours, and the thought of cocoa puffs cheered me up! I will go now and actually post that comment, which I never got to post! *sigh* hehhe
