On Saturday after leaving the (insanely busy) farmer's market filled with tourists, I decided I needed to eat malasadas. A malasada is Portuguese and is quite popular in Hawaii. It's deep fried dough rolled around in sugar. I foolishly decided not to look at a map but almost randomly drove down various streets in the right direction, hoping to hit the main thoroughfare that the bakery was on. I made lots of turns (LOTS), but eventually got there. Then I stood in line filled with tourists for my two malasadas and a weak cup of coffee.
Pure joy, I tell you. (I went to Whole Foods afterwards and ate the malasadas there instead of sitting in my hot car in the sun, and appropriated a napkin so that I didn't get sugar all over myself as I ate them.) I wish I'd bought coffee at Whole Foods, though. At least their coffee isn't weak.
I then ate tasty savory crepes with spinach, ham, and cheese for lunch, and went bowling. Bowling is so much fun, need to do it more. Too bad lots of alleys have shut down over the years.
It's been interesting seeing some posts on various communities about unexplained purging of members from some scanlation group. I hadn't realized some groups had not only become closed, but had become insanely asshole-ish. Including having rules about not talking about them anywhere (which I suppose is part of why I hadn't heard about all of this until now). There had always been asshole scanlation groups, but perhaps the level of asshole is greater now?
