Secret holiday sale!!!

Surprise! I reopened my etsy shop today after a loooong vacation (but who knows how long I'll be able to stay open). To celebrate, I'm having my biggest sale ever... 25% off EVERYTHING from Dec. 26 2011 to Jan. 1 2012! Plus I'm putting tons of items on clearance so you can just imagine the savings (for example, all my cupcakes are $10-$12 (normally starting at $14!). When checking out of my etsy store, just use the coupon code HOLIDAY!

My small cat!

Some of you may have seen on my Facebook, but for those of you who didn't, I have a new small cat! My dad teaches night classes at a community college here, and he was talking to some office people/ other teachers when a tiny kitten rolled out of the bushes and ran up to him and started meowing. Everybody thought it was his cat, but it was a wild kitten! He looked for the mama cat but he couldn't find her, so he brought the kitten home. There was about a week where we were deciding whether or not we could keep him (he was too small to even go to the Humane Society to be put up for adoption), but in the end we loved him so much we decided to make him our cat... we named him Tiger Puff, but I just call him small cat.

This was when we first got him... his eyes hadn't changed color yet!

Anyway, we've had our cat for about a month and although I've never had a cat before, I know he's an extremely GOOD cat; he trained himself to use the litterbox, he lets everyone pick him up and pet him, he's not picky about food, and he's very polite (like he doesn't beg for food, if you scold him he stops doing whatever he's not supposed to be doing). He has only two bad habits; he drools when he's sleeping and he likes to jump on my bed!

November happenings

I'm so sorry I didn't have time to blog much in November; one day soon the madness that is school will end! Plus, I was actually off island for quite a bit of the month! I went to Keaukaha on the Big Island for 2 days in the beginning of November; although the weather was quite stormy it was so beautiful (and I love that weather anyway). I feel lucky that I got to go, even if it was to get training for my work.

I also spent a day on the North Shore for my friend's wedding; it was so nice!

Finally, a bunch of my month was set aside preparing for the the American Anthropological Association Annual Conference, which was held in Montréal, Canada this year. I was presenting a paper as part of a panel, so I had to write that on top of work (reading reports and writing reports) and regular schooling (writing my thesis)... there was quite a bit of writing in November! Although it was stressful to prepare for the conference, I'm really glad I got to go... it was the perfect opportunity to visit Montréal, which I had never been to before. And yes it was very cold, especially for me (I had to order a warm jacket just for the occasion). Just look at my pictures: all the ones from Hawai`i are from November too... such a temperature difference! Thank goodness it wasn't snowing :) I stayed 2 days past the conference, so I got a chance to sight-see a bit. My favorite things were the Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal (Notre Dame Basilica of Montréal... I'm such a history nerd) and the Marché Jean-Talon (Jean-Talon Market), where I bought so much maple syrup (Dark Amber of course... and did you know it also comes in cans? ) that my previously empty suitcase was stuffed full :) Even though I was only there for 3 days, I'd definitely go back to Montréal, it was so much fun! Anyway, I hope you guys had fun Novembers as well!

Palais des congrès de Montréal: Where the conference was

Le centre historique de la ville de Montréal: Old Montreal

Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal: the most beautiful place I visited on my trip

Le quartier chinois de Montréal: Chinatown (actually a mix of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japan town), my hotel was quite close to here.

Marché Jean-Talon: I wish I had a kitchen in my hotel room... so many fresh fruits and veggies!
