the Islands

Hawaii is a nice place to hold meetings.

There are interesting things happening in the field of planets and sub-fields related to planets. Still sorting out what is truly cool, what is a distraction and which news are just teasing.

Sushi really is reliably better if you're actually in the middle of the ocean.

We really need more polynesian-mexican fusion restaurants.

Did it really snow, several inches? I am in such big trouble...

I agree, Hawaii is a great place to hold a conference. I am only slightly disappointed that my willpower to keep my newfound vegetarianism is stronger than my desire to try this dish called "Spam Loco Moco."

Ahh, so you're going to PPV too? Just about everyone I know is going to be there, apparently it's a big thing!

Hawaii is great, quite the place for a bunch of astronomers to meet, no? Sounds very fun, wish I could be there. But apparently it isn't quite the forum for HS students--when I inquired about it, way back before I knew what it really was, the only response I got was a laugh :)

Oh well, DC may be less exciting than Hawaii but at least there's still AAS.

Have fun! ;)

You are in trouble, but luckily the snow melted by this morning. I was "prevented" from leaving State College, so my 3 day weekend turned into 4 days...

I want a full debriefing of the meeting by the way ;)

AAS should be interesting this year.
One thing we can be pretty sure of is that there will be more astronomy meetings in diverse subfields in Hawaii...

I am in trouble, eh? Double trouble. Not only was I not there to shovel, and missed the Making of the Fist Snowman, but the poor thing will also have melted...

I'll never travel again. Much. Unless it is really urgent.

PS A.W. says "hi" JD. Heh, heh.

If by First snowman you mean first slushman, then you're in awful trouble. I think it's doubtful any Munchkins could mould together the thick mix of water in many phases of liquid and solid forms.

Say hi back to AW. You can tell her I have more uncertain plots. I'm really having fun here sans Hawaiian sun.

You underestimate munchkin power to transform reality by sheer will power.
We have the pictures. Er, we also have the elevation, amazing what ~ 30m altitude change can do to volatile phases.

It has actually rained here. A bit. We do glimpse the sun occasionally, emerging bleery eyed from marathon sessions.
