What a week. I am not sure if I have ever explained how poorly I function when I don’t have ready access to the Internet.
In case I haven’t, I don’t.
On Thursday evening, I lost access to the Internet. I was essentially without a broadband connection through the weekend. I did manage to find an open WIFI and slipped in a few minutes here and there, but for the most part, I was technology deficient through Tuesday… when a major storm hit Maui (dumping 4-8 inches of rain and tossing around debri with 50-80 mph winds)… from Tuesday morning at around 9:40 am through Thursday evening at around 7 pm, Kihei was without power… Which means on top of not having Internet access, I didn’t have DVD access. I almost went batshit crazy.
It all just goes to show how completely incompetent the powers that be here on Maui are. A power outtage that lasts three days? Where does that fucking happen anymore? I have said it before, but I will say it again… the infrastructure in Hawaii is hideously underwhelming. On the mainland, a countywide black out may last six to eight hours tops… but three fucking days? Aside from having one of the worst educational systems in the free world, most of the government workers are lazy and uneducated. I kills me to know that such a beautiful place is run by some of the dumbest motherfuckers to ever walk upright on god’s green earth.
It’s weeks like this that make me wish I still lived in San Francisco… If it was warmer and I could surf everyday, I would move back in a heartbeat. Between the asshole tourists and the fucking retarded natives, I am not exactly sure which is worse.
I am back online and just now getting my fix taken care of… hopefully your week was better than mine.
