Just home from college? My son, Augustine Downes, came up with this list of things to do his first weekend home after a long, cold winter on the Mainland. Funny, but it looks nothing like his mother's to-do list for him for the same weekend:

Get a job. Get a tattoo.
Hit the dentist for teeth-cleaning.
Hit Sandy's for bodyboarding.
Take Grandma for tea (your treat). Take Grandma to Morton's for steak and lobster (her treat).
Eat your five-a-day of fruits and veggies.
Eat five plates of garlic chicken.
Go Web surfing for internships. Go surfing at Queen's.
Go for a haircut.
Go to a concert at the Pipeline Cafe.
Make plans to see "Akeelah and the Bee." Make plans to see "Snakes on a Plane."
Hike up your pants.
Hike all three peaks of Olomana.
Pick up in your room. Pick up babes at Ward.
Take little brother to the 50th State Fair.
Take little brother to kegger at the beach.
