- List one question you answered during competition for the KHS Quizzard team.
Aaaaagh! I remember on a frightening basis one that I answered incorrectly. It's so very very stupid, and I kicked myself as soon as I said it, and have kicked myself on average about once a week since. "What is the average of 20, 24, and 25?" My brain completely flipped out and missed the 2s in there, and I answered 13 instead of 23.
- Most favorite local grinds that you can't get there.
Meep. Just one? Hmmmm. Plate lunch, I think. (That's probably cheating, as it covers so many different things.) Loco moco. Meat jun. Haupia. Pickled watermelon rind. Crack seeds! Ani's sweet bread. Jack in the Box (yes, I know, not local, but we don't have them here). Malasadas. Portugese sausage. Shoyu chicken. Shave ice. Manapua. Hawaiian Sun drinks. Um. That's just off the top of my head, of course. :)
So, uh, can you do care packages for poor exiles on the east coast? ;)
- Have you taken the train to Worcester from DC yet? If no, why not?
I haven't. Generally, my trips are pretty time-constrained, and I haven't been able to convince myself to dedicate the time to a train trip. I was going to take the train for my next trip, but it looks like the person I was going to be traveling with won't be joining me, and that was part of the allure. I will definitely have to do this at some point.
- This is probably obvious, but papaya, mango or lychee?
Mango, definitely. Then, lychee, then papaya. I have a really hard time finding mangoes out here that I feel are "right" and it drives me insane. Of course, when I do find them, they're something like $2 each. (Paying for mangoes? Goodness!) Lychee are hard to find fresh here, but I do sometimes stumble across a stash, and that's always good. For some reason, I never really enjoyed papaya.
- Without checking a yearbook, what is the first line of the KHS alma mater?
High atop an Oahu hillside
Stands our noble school
Fellowship and inspiration
I can remember snippets of the rest of it, but the first stanza is burned into my brain. :)
