Cash?

This is quite weird. For the last few years, when beggers approached me for money, I could honestly say that I had no cash. I thought that cash was dying as a monetary system. Not true. Try working in the service industry. It's all cash. Quite interesting stuff. Perrin and I are having trouble switching to this cash-based system.

Did you know that when you spend cash you don't accumulate miles? Also, this "cash" requires that you physcially go to the bank if you want to deposit it, there are no electronic transfer options. And where do you put all of this cash? Between the mattresses? In the cookie jar? In you safe behind your artwork? Any suggestions are appreciated because the whole idea of cash is new to me.

Can you pay your whole rent in cash?

Leilani's On the Beach

I finally am gainfully employed. Or at least am on the track to be. Leilani's is a steak and seafood restaurant located on the beach in Kaanapali, a vegetarian's dream. Yep we serve a 32oz prime rib, and I cringe everytime I see it. BUt the people seem to be great and the parent company, TS Restaurants, is supposed to be one of the best companies to work for on Maui, along with Old Lahaina Luau, and Maui Jim's. I'll keep you posted on how my foray into the service industry goes..

Aloha Mixed Plate

Perrin has found a job working at Aloha Mixed Plate. She is a full time server at this beach side restaurant. It is a cheap place that serves local food. Perrin gets to wear khaki shorts and a nice tight yellow T-shirt. It seems to be working fairly well, because she is raking in the tips. It is amazing how fast tips accumulate when you can turn 40 tables in a day. It's good somebody is making some cash because I am still unemployed and haven't done much looking yet... Someday soon..
