A Migraine in Maui
I met with my family at this restaurant called Top of Waikiki. I think that's the name. All I kept thinking was about how on The Larry Sanders Show (dang...HBO has done a lot of great shows, haven't they? Anyone remember one with Tawny Kitaen, who was from El Cajon, ended up on the hood of David Coverdales Jaguar in that Here I Go Again video and is now on Celebrity Rehab? Anyway, the show starred underrated comedian Tim Thomerson, taking the high school reunion money to Vegas).
Back to the Larry Sanders Show, though. His sidekick Hank (hey now), invests in a revolving restaurant. It ends up not revolving properly. Then going so fast that everyone got sick and puked.
Well, this revolving restaurant went slow enough. The view was okay, although it's mostly of buildings near the beach. I had a better view from my hotel room.
But I was working with a migraine I had gotten earlier. I didn't bring my proper medication, so I went with regular aspirin. It wasn't doing the trick, and after one bite of my meal, I told my family I had to leave because of my headache.
I went back to the hotel, threw a hot wash cloth on my face, and it finally went away.
My girlfriend and I walked around the corner for some Hagaan Dazs. And, the band that was doing the Hawaiian version of "Lay Down Sally" the other night, was doing a mellow, eukeled version of Journey's "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'." A guy was rocking out to it wearing an "I got Lei'd in Hawaii" shirt.
A T-shirt I might've thought was funny if I was 13.
