Now that I'm a local, I try to respect their privacy. Thank you Tamba for having such a small surf shop! It was quite nice to squeeze in with the shirtless wonder!source site
By the way, Tamba has great boards! Just saw John Walsh last Sunday at the place in Hanalei that. OK, it wasn't on Kauai , but Gary Sinese did sit right behind me on the plane. He's in one of my favorite movies--Apollo so it was hard not to say hello, but I didn't want to bother him. So I didn't! I want to see who live around here. In New Orleans there is an unwritten rule that we don't "mess" with celeb's but treat hem normal. Lots of celebs do indeed either own homes here or vacation here regularly -- a friend who owns a shop in Hanalei Town on the North Shore usually will give me his "celebrity sightings" for the week and there is seldom a week that goes by without one.
Two folks who are here and using their homes a lot are Pierce Brosnan and Ben Stiller - both have had homes here for quite some time. Pierce Brosnan is probably our most well-known almost-full-time resident.

He is very active in supporting several causes here on island and is also just around a lot -- he is very gracious and doesn't have any "star attitude" -- in fact he is almost unrecognizable sometimes as he looks pretty scruffy and unkept for him! I've seen him at Borders, WalMart, in Hanalei and also at a premiere he did for his movie "Evelyn" a few years back at the Kilauea Theatre which was for a local charity. I've met a few folks also from working at the Grand Hyatt -- cast member Terry O'Quinn from "Lost" most recently -- a truly nice guy -- easy to talk to and very friendly.
I think that the fact that folks here in general just don't bother them a lot contributes to the popularity of Kaua'i -- especially up on the North Shore where they tend to "congregate"!! I've never asked for an autograph or taken a picture personally -- but if the situation is right, I usually will say something like "I enjoy your work" how original! I have to say that a story about Ben Stiller told me what a nice guy he is -- my friend said he was in his store and a visitor came in and asked for his picture -- he patiently stood and took one for the guy and then actually stood there attentively while the visitor started showing him his vacation pictures on his camera for several minutes!
Now I don't know if I would have had the patience for that personally! As a movie buff myself I always enjoy "sighting" celebrities! When my husband worked on a film here I really enjoyed meeting the cast members -- a real thrill!

Gardened with Jaime. Watched Homeland with Jaime. Wrestled with Jaime. Laughed for hours with Jaime. Worked on a play. Played World of Warcraft. Did some improv. Played a ton of the guitar. Really just had a wild, amazing year. What a world. By the time I finished reading, I realized that my non-phone hand was clutching tightly to my forehead, forcefully scrunching my forehead skin together.
But instead of distancing myself from the horror, I soaked in it.

I read it again and again, fascinated by how something could be so aggressively unappealing. It comes down to a pretty simple rule:. A Facebook status is annoying if it primarily serves the author and does nothing positive for anyone reading it. To be not annoying, a Facebook status typically has to be one of two things:. You know why these are not annoying?
Ideally, interesting statuses would be fascinating and original or a link to something that is , and funny ones would be hilarious. The author wants to affect the way people think of her. The author wants to make people jealous of him or his life. The author is feeling lonely and wants Facebook to make it better.

This is the least heinous of the five—but seeing a lonely person acting lonely on Facebook makes me and everyone else sad. Facebook is infested with these five motivations—other than a few really saintly people, most people I know, myself certainly included, are guilty of at least some of this nonsense here and there. Bragging is such a staple of unfortunate Facebook behavior, it needs to be broken into three subsections:. Somewhere in the middle would be you calculatingly crafting your words as part of an unendearing and transparent campaign to make people see you in a certain way.
On the other hand, they have the same exact core motivations as the blatant braggers and looking at these examples actually makes the first group seem almost lovable in comparison.
The image-crafting and jealousy-inducing motives here are transparent. But really? The fun part of these is watching the inevitable comments and then watching how the author responds to them, if at all. This process slots the author into one of four sub-categories:.
