‘Morning, everybody!  Feelin’ kinda blah this morning even though my body feels ok and I’m back to my regular sleep schedule.  Just feeling a little down in spirit and energy … even my beloved Dunkin’ Donuts coffee can’t seem to bring me out of this funk!  I don’t know if it’s a lingering effect of jet lag or what, but I don’t like feeling this way …

Went to Tsukuneya last night with Alex, Gregg, and friends for some late pau hana.  We usually just have pupus (appetizers) but ended up ordering their char siu ramen (noodle soup) since we hadn’t had dinner.  Alex also ordered his favorite shrimp and avocado salad which really isn’t a salad – it’s pieces of shrimp, avocado, and shredded cabbage rolled up in a sesame tortilla and sprinkled with a light dressing.  Really good stuff!  The ramen we ordered was good too – char siu is a type of Chinese roast pork used in many types of dishes, but it’s THE BOMB when added to a steaming hot bowl of miso ramen!  The ramen we had last night was a little different though, because after a few bites I noticed that my mouth was starting to burn.  After taking a closer look at my bowl, I noticed tiny little slices of red chili hidden amongst the noodles!  Aha!  Those sneaky buggers!  Hahaha!  Actually, it was great because I happen to love spicy food …

And it’s Thursday, which means a round of afternoon golf with my degenerate buddies.  I’m going to try out the Nike Vapor ball again – the one I told you guys about last week – and will let you know whether I’m gonna switch from my regular Titlelist ball.  It looks like we have two full groups today so I’d better have my “A” game or it could get ugly (not to mention costly!).

Have a great day!

Aloha, “D”
