Travel Diary Day 3: Kauai

12.39 Hawaii-Aleutian Time
I can't say I've done anything exciting so far today. I spent much of the time on the phone trying to track down a charger. I talked a couple times with Fujifilm's office in Oahu, and then Don of Don's Camera here on Kauai, and yes, I'm going to be able to get a charger which will be sent here by tomorrow. Unfortunately, I have the whole day kayaking from 6.00 to 19.30, so won't be able to get it until Wednesday.

In preparation for kayaking the Na Pali coast with Kayak Kauai's guided group, I had Dave phone in a Scopolamine script for me (thanks, Dave). The people said at the shop that sea-sickness is common and non-refundable. So I figured I'd better get my money's worth even though Scop patches make me feel a little loopy.

The rest of this morning, believe it or not, I was working on a piece for a new journal called Cell Cyle. The editor invited Joe to write a free-form commentary on our recent Nature Genetics paper. And before I left Joe asked about it so I figured it would be better if I hopped to it and sent him something. I feel somewhat torn because at once, since I'm here I feel obligated to go out and explore, on the other, I have, besides the commentary, to read the Advanced Trauma Life Support textbook and take the ATLS pre-test, scan the Advanced Cardiac Life Support book, review EKGs, and start outlining the roadmap Pearl and I are going to write up to integrate CODEx principles into projects at Duke, and ACOSOG.

One compensation was being able to take this laptop out onto the lanai (that's Hawaiian for balcony) and scope bikini-clad bathing beauties on the beach with the tradewinds swirling through the palms as two hula-skirted ladies fanned me with koa fronds...or, not.

A couple more photos (I'm sure my battery is going to expire any moment):

The first is a picture of the main street in Koloa town as it exits northwest. The storefront now houses the Southshore Pharmacy that filled my Scopolamine prescription but used to be the storefront for the local sugar plantation's company store. I had a pretty good "Kauai Pie" ice cream at Lappert's down the street--a concoction of coffee, coconut, fudge, and nuts. The second photo is more palm trees off my lanai looking out southwest.

I'm debating whether to drive to Hanalei on the North Shore later today.

I have a sore throat.

I'm sure it was the Japanese sporting a goatee sitting next to me on RDU-Chicago, he was coughing much of the way while I tried to subtly hold my breath and press myself against the opposite side of the plane begging the powers on high that I wouldn't get sick on my last vacation. Circle circle dot to dot...

I really think the psychology of texas holdem is way hyped, it is portrayed like there is minimal luck involved at all at the pro level.
