Humans are very good at recognizing faces, even when the face doesn't actually exist.

Back in 2006, we went to Hawaii. I made an informal challenge to myself to keep count of all the man buns -- well, that doesn't sound right -- that we'd see. I was crushed. Not a single one. I'd expected David Beckhams everywhere.  Surfers. Huge Polynesian guys in floral shirts. Etc. What I hadn't counted on was the omnipresence of saccharine music. Butterflies. Dawn. First love. Honey. Warm breezes. Cascading waves. You think to yourself, "Well, that's a bit much, but it won't bother me." But it does. By the end of the first day you become like a quivering blancmange. After a week they have to put you on the plane home in a bucket.

ayup, pareidolia is one heckuva drug. we've come a long way since clouds and constellations and ink-blots, I guess.

me, all's I saw was a dinosaur-muppet maybe wearing a nun's habit.

Nun on a bun. Nun on a bun!

well, the real "mother teresa" was an evil, sadistic, biatch. she truly believed poverty and physical suffering brought people "closer to god" and she was always envious of the wretched and the dying.

because of this, her "missions" and "hospitals" -even the ones for children- never provided even basic painkillers (like not even on the level of NSAIDs like ibuprofen) to people, not even those dying of cancer or with a traumatic break to a bone. she WANTED people to know and explore deep physical pain, she thought it would make them "christ-like".

she also was vehemently against not just abortion, but ANY kind of contraception or family planning. already have 8 kids starving to death, and/or infested with parasites, in an indian slum? go ahead and have 3 or 4 more! who cares if 2 of those kids die before age 5, and the 11th pregnancy kills both mother and child, they've all been "perfected" by all that suffering!

she found fame and fortune, and brought immense pain to dying poor people in india, but never really bothered to learn any indian languages.

and she was 100% against divorce, unless you were her rich, powerful, and famous gal-pal princess diana.

and this "simple" nun so devoted to poverty and pain, was such an important big account for the vatican bank she used a private entrance to the building, like a high roller being courted by a casino. she died with over $100 million in her personal account.

upon noticing this "bun" seemed to look like her, the only appropriate responses should have been to laugh and consume it angrily, or toss it back into the oven and burn it into a pile of ash, like burning a witch.

Huh. Wife and I spent a fair number of days on the big island-mostly in Hilo.

It wasn't touristy at all, and we thankfully encountered none of that shiat. Place is basically a chill college town that happens to be a 30 min drive from Badass Active Volcano National Park.

I mostly remember eating the best damn Thai and Korean food I've ever encountered, badass poke bowls, and filthy pork-laden sandwiches.

And grueling hikes all over the volcano park, followed by returning to the B&B, wishing for death for 20 min or so, and then grabbing a 6 pack of local beer and heading out to the hot tub.

what island/s were you on? if you went to a touristy part of hawaii, as a tourist, and then were miffed to discover the tourism industry was trying its damnedest to give you "the full hawaiian honeymoon getting lei-d at the luau with a maitai experience" you might be a bit dim.

if you went to disneyworld you'd EXPECT to see LOTS of mickey-mouse-things, right? if you went to aspen in the winter you'd expect things related to skiing, right? so, if you find "Butterflies. Dawn. First love. Honey. Warm breezes. Cascading waves" to be unpleasant DON'T spend the money to fly to a literal tropical island paradise!

next time, just stay in kentucky.

In French, they are called pêtes de Soeur. I believe that French Canadians also use that name for cinnamon rolls, especially the bite-sized rolls.

We rented a house up on the northeast side of Oahu. So, except for an afternoon in Honolulu we weren't around lots of tourists. (We were there when the earthquake hit the channel off Hawaii.) From the acrid smell of burning rubber in your post, I suspect that you don't find tuns of honey, first love, and  butterflies to be as astringent as I do. Big world, and all that. Lovely place, Hawaii. We went back some time later to Kauai. Also lovely.

Still no man buns.

Cheers.

I... I'm not sure any of those things are true? did not grow up in Ukraine but just as well might have, given my family.

I used to love eating salo, and last night I did have a double-neat of Nemiroff honey+chilipepper, which (a.) it's been a while, and (2.) kind of pretty rather odd to see it on the shelf of $authentic_Italian_family_restaurant (who neither stock Campari nor know how Negroni is formed)

they also had this russki-standart on the shelf, which, again, Italian restaurant?! the bartendress was as confused as I. meh, it was st-petersburg-drinkable, would never order again.
