majical monday

so, aloha fridays have been sort of a bust around here. the weather has conspired against our efforts for the last month- every friday has been junk weather. mondays have been awesome though. today we had some fun at castles- which is apparently the place to be this winter, with the north shore being too freaking big most of the time to surf (although we had a good time saturday afternoon before the newest swell hit) the east side has been the place to be. but you don't have to take my word for it, even turtle surfs castles.
and if you don't know who turtle is, you might have to stop reading my blog and being my friend. seriously. or you can come over to my house and i will sit you down in front of the tv for, well, something amazing. and if you can't come over, go rent the movie north shore tonight. you can thank me later.

the kids don't even know how lucky they were...
i however, got a kiss on the cheek from the guy i have been in love with since i was 10. the summer before i came out to hawaii my brothers and i watched north shore every friday night. i have never watched a movie as many times as north shore. i have the whole thing memorized. it might be responsible for my wanting to come out to hawaii so bad as a kid. it might be responsible for shaping my whole life. not really. although, if we ever have a man-child luke really wants to name him "vince moaloka moffat." and he is serious.
anyways, turtle at castles. pretty rad.

this is the real life turtle that john played in the movie. i wonder if he is still around.
the best thing ever is that this picture i found somewhere on the www was titled "north shore hunks" awesome. occy (why did he get to use his real name in the movie?), chandler, lance burkhart, alex rodgers, rick kane, turtle... all hunks for sure ;)
needless to say, today was a good day.
later barno's.

Looks like Turtle genuinely enjoyed meeting his biggest fan. Watch out Luke!

Ok. I'm going to vomit.

Chris should have married you.

This movie causes much contention in our home. Something like this:

CHRIS: North Shore is the best movie. Ever.
ME: Come on. Seriously?
CHRIS: Yes.
ME: That is the worse movie. Ever.

Period.

Haha Dan was soooo jealous when I told him about this! He has done soooo much research on this movie (he once wrote a 20 page paper JUST on the movie North Shore alone) he said he read an article that Turtle wrote were he said tons of people come up to him and tell him how that movie had changed their lives forever and they live for the movie! Haha I am soooooo glad I stayed the extra five minutes and didn't go home! ahhhh! So exciting! P.S. how lame are my humungo sun glasses??? geeze I should have taken those monsters off!!

Holy Crap!! I heard that guy was killed and buried in the desert somewhere in California. Guess not. Alive and doing well it seems. Best movie of all time, and not to mention where I got my nickname!! Barno Rules!
